Spinach Egg Bake

Spinach Egg Bake

One of my favorite dishes for potlucks and company are these mini-frittatas which are delicious and absolutely adorable!  But to be perfectly honest, scooping each frittata and then getting them out of the pan is a bit of a pain, so when I’m just looking for a simple egg dish, I’ve been making this modifiedRead More

Maple Cinnamon Waffles (Grain-free!)

Maple Cinnamon Waffles (Grain-free!)

We are a big fan of whole grains in our house.  For the last several years, I have been cooking pretty much exclusively with whole grains, with great results.  And while I firmly believe in their healthfulness, and try to branch out to grains like brown rice, millet, and barley, every once in a whileRead More

Fudgy Snack Balls

Fudgy Snack Balls

I have to confess, I’ve been holding out on you.  I first discovered this recipe last summer, and even though it was HUGELY successful I haven’t gotten around to sharing until now!  For that, I apologize, but hopefully once you go and make these you will forgive me. My girls both seem to have inheritedRead More

The Best Mashed Sweet Potatoes

The Best Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Ok, I know, that’s a really gutsy title for a recipe.  But, as a sweet potato lover for as long as I can remember, I feel qualified to say that this method of making sweet potatoes, if not actually the “best”, is amazingly delicious in addition to being so easy and so good for us!Read More

Potato Leek Soup

Potato Leek Soup

As my farmer’s market wraps up, a few staples that have been consistently available for the past few weeks are winter squash, potatoes, and leeks.  One of my goals for this winter is to get better at making soup, and so potatoes and leeks immediately made me think of potato leek soup.  Many recipes outRead More

Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Ahhh, the crisp cool weather of fall…I don’t know about you, but the end of the summer heat (and sunblock and chlorine and sand!) comes as quite a relief for me, and I welcome the leaves changing color and the cooler weather finally arriving.  I am also excited about fall produce.  Attempting to eat seasonallyRead MoreRead More

Moroccan Lamb Stew

Moroccan Lamb Stew

This post was originally published on June 1, 2010. Last time I ordered meat from my CSA, I decided to branch out a bit from my typical beef and poultry selection and bought two kinds of lamb – stew pieces and a lamb leg steak.  The steak is still in the freezer waiting for theRead MoreRead More

Mini Spinach and Cheddar Frittatas

Mini Spinach and Cheddar Frittatas

As I mentioned in my post about the naming ceremony we recently hosted for the peanut, I decided to plan a menu that mixed traditional bagels with some homemade sides that helped round out the meal.  I was serving lox (smoked salmon) with the bagels, but for people who may not be a fan, IRead More

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Passover is often filled with yucky foods made with matzo meal that do a terrible job of imitating real food.  I have found that dessert are especially tough, as many people try to modify regular recipes to be kosher for Passover, but the result is never going to be quite the same.  My opinion is thatRead More

Charoset, kid friendly and nut free!

Charoset, kid friendly and nut free!

Those of you who celebrate Passover know that the holiday has its benefits (matzo ball soup!) and drawbacks (how long has this seder been dragging on??).  On the plus side for me is definitely charoset – this sweet apple and walnut mixture comes near the end of the seder, and marks the beginning of theRead More
