Tomato, caper, arugula pasta

  All I have to say about this one is yum. The flavors are so fresh and bright and the lemon really brings out the best of the garlic and capers. Its great for a quick and satisfying dinner. I ate it for dinner the last two nights and could eat it again tonight if …

Wild rice skillet

Even though it’s the middle of winter and we’re supposed to get a foot of snow tomorrow, this dish had me thinking of fall. Winter squash, crispy tart apples, kale. And as I was eating it, I realized how amazing this dish would be as a side to some farm raised pork chops.

Lemony Lentil Soup

    I spent the last couple weeks in Arizona, helping my PhD advisor teach a course. We were in Flagstaff, which is at 7,000 feet and isn’t the warm and palm-treed version of Arizona people typically think of. But, I did get to escape to Sedona for a couple of days to play and …

Asian Kale Salad

There’s something about all the recipes for ‘massaged kale salads’ that seem a little too foodie to me. I imagine a snooty voice saying, ‘now you must gently massage the kale with your hands until you feel the leaves relax’, and it makes me want to gag. I’m not sure why. I mean, I realize …

Salt and Vinegar Smashed Potatoes

When I saw this recipe, I had to try it. Salt and vinegar potato chips are my all time favorite, and I’ll often forgo the ketchup with my fries and use salt and malted vinegar instead. Now that I think about it, this all might stem from a couple months spent in New Zealand in …

Any berry muffins

I did it! After five days of intense writing, I finished the written part of my preliminary exams. Given the months of studying, not eating as healthy as I would have liked, and fitting in exercise only here and there, I had been looking forward to having more time to take care of myself.

I must have led a pretty sheltered life. I had heard the term snickerdoodle, but never knew what it, or one, was. And I never even had any desire to find out. Without knowing what it was, I thought it was some goofy treat that only kids would like. I mean no adult called that …

Thai Coconut Curry

I’m in the middle of studying for my preliminary exams. For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, preliminary exams are a rite of passage for all PhD students where your advisory committee can ask you just about anything under the sun in your area of study. I mean literally anything. Given …

Mom’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

  Okay, so I know this recipe is from my mom, and your mom’s is probably different. Maybe hers were the flat crispy kind of chocolate chip cookie, or the gigantic cake-y ones. But, in my book, these are the quintessentially perfect chocolate chip cookie.

Tomato Zucchini Tart

Drowning in tomatoes, zucchini, and basil? Then make this!! It’s a lazy end-of-summer tart, with a flavor that’s so fresh, bright, and full, you’ll forget how easy it was to make. I know this sounds too good to be true, but trust me — after my first bite, I was kind of in love.
