Savory Garlic Green Beans

A lot of the time I’m asked if this is purely a dessert blog. It’s not, but I can see where the confusion comes from between brownies and bark and cookies. Desserts are just easier to photograph. You don’t have to worry about them cooling too much. You can even wait a whole day before…

My Favorite Comfort Food

I think you can tell a lot about people based on what they love to eat: If they go to bed dreaming of bagels slathered in cream cheese, or wait each year until grilling season for authentic BBQ, or haunt the same local restaurant week after week for all-you-can-eat sushi. A few years ago if…

Green Beans Provencal

When you’re around Italian cooking a lot, you start to pick up the unspoken rules of Italian cooking. These are the rules that tell you how to pair sauce with a specific shape of pasta, not to pair cheese with a fish dish, and to never put a red sauce over green vegetables. Lucky for…

Stovetop Kale And Mushroom Frittata

This school year I’m doing something different. For the first time, I’m completely off of meal plan. That means I’m making every meal for myself, 3(who am I kidding? 5) times a day. I did enjoy dropping into the cafeteria and piling up options from the salad bar from time to time, or bumping into…

How To Fry Plantains

I’d say I’m an adventurous eater and an adventurous cook. I’ll try anything once… except for deep frying, because we really don’t need to get the fire department involved. For a long time I had never had a plantain. They just seemed… odd. I mean, look at that—isn’t that kind of creepy? But also familiar…

Tempeh And Broccoli

I’ve been getting a lot of questions on tempeh recently. I want to put all my thoughts into a post about it but until then you’ll only get recipes, which is pretty good considering half the time I eat tempeh it’s raw, cold from the fridge. I would not suggest eating it that way if…

Sesame Mushroom And Kale

Last week a reader asked me to post about how I cook kale and specifically a mushroom/kale side dish I photographed. You don’t have to ask me twice to cook this dish; kale and mushrooms are two of my favorite foods when prepared properly. This recipe cooks kale by steaming it, which gets it to…

Pizza Omelet

Do you remember that joyous moment when Bagel Bites promised you pizza in the morning, pizza in the evening, pizza at supper time? And do you remember that heart-wrenching moment when you realized a diet of only Bagel Bites probably wasn’t that good for you? I do. Let’s fast forward ~10 years to my current…

The Only Omelet Recipe You’ll Ever Need

I’m careful never to overuse superlatives, so believe me when I say this is the best omelet I’ve ever had. It’s filling and meaty with a salty-sweet kick. The maple syrup takes this to a new level that other omelets just can’t compete with. In fact, if chocolate and peanut butter didn’t exist, I’d probably…

Savory Italian-Style Socca Pancakes

I’ve had an unopened bag of chickpea flour in my pantry for 4 months. That’s 4 months too long. After seeing socca on Anna and Serena’s blogs recently, it was about time that I try out socca pancakes. These were so flavorful, and so easy, too. It really was just like making any old pancakes….
