  • Carrot Ginger Soup

    Carrot Ginger Soup

      I’m pretty sure I got this recipe from my sister. I remember eating this soup at her place one time, when we both happened to live in beautiful Missoula, Montana, and falling immediately in love with it.

  • Caesar salad with anchovy croutons

    Caesar salad with anchovy croutons

    I’m a big snob when it comes to caesar salads. I’m of the school that they should be pungent and full of anchovies and garlic and I think it’s a sin that the most common form of caesar dressing out there is a bland white goo more resemblant of mayonnaise than salad dressing.

  • Tomato, caper, arugula pasta

    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

    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

    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 […]

  • Biscuits


    Growing up in Connecticut, I wasn’t exactly exposed to biscuits. I don’t recall my mom ever making them and I definitely never got them when we ate out. In true northeastern style, it was a bagels and italian bread sort of place. An then, in my 20s, I dated a boy from the south.

  • Asian Kale Salad

    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 […]

  • Miso Glazed Salmon with Wilted Spinach

    This one sounds fancy pants, but it is really easy, quick, and super delicious! As you can see, I normally serve it over a bed of rice.

  • Molasses Triple Chocolate Cookies

    I think it is a universal truth that no Christmas would be complete without cookies. Lots of cookies. And, if you don’t have time to make a bunch of different kinds of cookies, these will more than do the trick. Imagine a chocolate chip, gingerbread and snickerdoodle cookie all rolled into one.

  • Marieb the Arab’s Italian soup

    My dad spent his entire career as a dedicated, hard-working doctor. Growing up, he was often gone to the hospital long before I got out of bed and arrived home just in time for dinner. With the exception of summer grilling, my mom was the cook in our house. Now that my dad is retired, […]
