Roasted Green Beans

It can be tough to find a healthy side at the many holiday dinners that we attend. Over the last couple of years, I’ve made it a sort of tradition to show up with the one healthy side that almost no one else wants to eat. There is always broccoli… baked in a vat of [...]

Watermelon Lemonade

August 16, 2010

Ashley of Delish chose this week’s Project Pastry Queen recipe: Watermelon Lemonade. This recipe is the perfect example of why baking projects like Project Pastry Queen are so fun – I wouldn’t have ever made this recipe on my own. When it gets hot, my beverage of choice is usually an ice cold beer or [...]

Chicken and Spaghetti with Lemon Cream Sauce

The produce bowl on the counter sits in comically sad shape: half a bulb of garlic and 9 lemons. 9 starting-to-look-sad lemons. I love lemon. Like love-love lemon. Jason? Not so crazy about lemons if they don’t come in the form of lemonade. He’s somewhat forgiving if they’re in dessert form but in savory dishes? [...]

Lemony Penne with Chicken and Arugula

What’s for dinner? We’re having Penne [knock knock knock] Penne [knock knock knock] Penne [knock knock knock] Yep, I thought it was *so* clever when I did that I love Sheldon.

Blackberry-Lemon Buttermilk Cake

About a year ago, I flipped passed a recipe for Raspberry Buttermilk Cake in Gourmet. It wasn’t really my kind of cake. 1 layer? No frosting? No thanks. And then I found myself with a mountain of blackberries and few new ideas so I gave the cake a chance. I love the simplicity of this [...]

Chicken with Peas and Couscous

Quick. Easy. Light. Yummy. It makes me very happy when I can use all those words describe one single recipe. This is probably one of my favorite new recipe finds from last month’s Everyday Food. It tastes like spring in a bowl – the lemon, peas, and chicken are simple and fresh – and it [...]

Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes

Strawberry season! Big, fat, juicy and dirt, dirt cheap. I intended to bring strawberry cupcakes to a get-together but then I walked passed big, fat, juicy lemons. Not for sale, but still big. Fat. Juicy! I needed lemonade! And lemony cupcakes! I switched from strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese frosting to lemon cupcakes with strawberry [...]

Grouper with Garlic-Lemon Butter Sauce

I love daylight savings – it’s still daylight at supper time! With a 7 week old, I don’t even miss that hour of sleep. With a 7 week old, I also don’t have loads of free time to hang out and play in the kitchen. Or do laundry. Or wear matching socks, apparently. If it’s [...]
