Curried Lentils with Potatoes


There are certain necessities in life. You need to go to coffee on the weekend. Preferably with a cute baby strapped to you. You need to bring that cute baby to meet someone awesome. Like Joy the Baker! The line may stretch down the block, but it’s worth the […]

Wheat Berry and Lentil Salad with Tahini Dressing


I think I have a good schedule worked out that will let me get in all the things I want to do. At least, it’s worked so far this week: 5 AM – wake up, make breakfast, write blog post 6 AM – shower, get ready 6:30 AM – […]

Lentil Salad with Fried Eggs and Mushrooms

I love meeting other food bloggers. Particularly those who run and appreciate good coffee and are perfectly content to sit on a bench overlooking the bay talking about running Boston and stress fractures and boys and family and meeting famous bloggers. I got to hang out with Joanne this […]

French Green Lentils with Tomatoes

Obviously, dessert posts are MUCH more popular than posts like this. Which sounds better, a brownie or a bowl of stewed lentils? Pretty sure you’re going to go with the brownie. But sometimes, honestly, we just need this simple, healthy food. I always heard (well, in the last couple […]

Olive Lentil Burgers

I hate the day after a 3-day weekend. It’s almost harder than coming back after a longer vacation because I just start getting into full-on lazy mode and then I have to snap back to reality faster than I want to. Maybe it’s because it’s still my first year […]

Arab Table Lentil and Chard Stew

Lentil. Chard. Stew. Three words that tend to induce reactions varying from mild disgust to gagging, and I threw them all together in the title of this recipe. But please give lentils and chard another chance, because this stuff is really, really good. I think the reason people hate […]

Mediterranean Couscous and Lentil Salad

I always forget how much I hate the process of moving. During our almost-three years of marriage Mike and I have lived in four different places just in California, not to mention our two apartments in Chiang Mai, one in Bangkok, and one in Seoul (Asia was easier because […]

Kushari (Egyptian Rice and Lentils)

I consider myself decently well-traveled, but I know there are thousands of people out there who’ve been far more places than I’ll ever go. I used to be really competitive about it but now I’m just grateful to have had the opportunity to travel as much as I have. […]

Mjaddrah (Lentils with Carmelized Onions)

My interest in Lebanese food began when I was just learning how to cook, around age 12. My best friend’s mom was from Lebanon and I can remember the food she made as being unlike anything I’d ever tasted, but so much better than what I was used to. […]

The Perfect Lentil Soup

In the not so distant past, I would have told you there is no such thing as perfect lentil soup. ¬†Lentils were something I forced myself to eat because they seem so healthy. ¬†Fortunately, I discovered I was just using the wrong kind of lentils! This soup doesn’t look like […]
