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 […]

Potato, Lemon, and Thyme Pizza

“This is the best pizza I’ve ever had. Literally. The lemon makes it.” Those were Mike’s exact words on Friday night, which is almost always pizza night at our house. I can’t say for sure whether or not it was the best pizza I’ve ever tasted, but it is […]

Aloo Gobi

Are you one of those people that constantly ranks things, High Fidelity style? (If you have no idea what I’m talking about, read this then please watch the movie immediately). I am. I could sit here right now and list off my top 5 vacation spots, races I’ve run, […]

Colcannon

It just so happens that yesterday was my 26th birthday. Judge all you want to, but I’m one of those people that still gets excited about my birthday, probably in part because my family has a knack for picking out the absolute best birthday presents ever. My parents sent […]

Boxty Pancakes

If you’re a procrastinator like I tend to be, and you still haven’t finalized your St. Patricks Day menu, consider putting these on it. They’re great topped with jam or as a side dish for stew, and they’re not too complex to make. Apparently there are all sorts of […]

Trinidad Corn Soup

I love how so many things in life just seem to work out. I have to admit, when I signed up for Adopt-A-Blogger #4 I was a little skeptical. After all, how do I qualify as a mentor? Yeah, I’ve been doing this for over a year, but I’d […]

Roasted potato chips with goat cheese

It’s a tradition in my husband’s family to have an appetizer party a few days before Christmas. I always love finding new recipes to try, and this year, this and my favorite appetizer (salad rolls/fresh spring rolls – whatever you call them, I love them!) were my contributions. The […]

Hearty Cabbage Soup

I was mentally writing this blog post as I pureed this soup. I considered writing about how this is perfect for those chilly winter nights when it’s hard to warm up after shoveling snow all day, or how an icy breeze cuts through all the layers you pile on […]

Mushroom Chowder

I’m not a picky eater at all. Off the top of my head, the only thing I really don’t like is raw mushrooms, and you encounter those so infrequently I don’t really think it counts. I’m also starting to be much less inclined to eat meat, but that’s another […]

Garlic-Chive Gnocchi

I have a knack for timing cooking endeavors very poorly. I distinctly remember a weeknight my senior year of high school, sobbing over some uncooked hijiki sea vegetables that were supposed to be included in a rice dish to accompany some steamed fish. I hadn’t read the recipe carefully […]
