Watermelon Salad with Tequila Lime Vinaigrette

Last week, a picture of a pumpkin cheesecake popped up in my Facebook feed and I was like no. And then I went all Tracy-Morgan-from-Cop-Out. NO. NONONONONONO. HELL. NO. It’s July. And I want no part of pumpkin creamy salted apple Thanksgiving caramel candy corn baked casserole pumpkin anything. What I do want? Sweet, figure-friendly [...]

Grilled Pineapple and Avocado Eggrolls

Avocado and Grilled Pineapple Eggrolls

Before we start talking about the insanity of what almost amounts to deep-fried guacamole, let’s talk about safety. Because there are some things you shouldn’t do on a school night. Like drinking most of a bottle of wine all by yourself. And then come the things that you shouldn’t do after drinking most of a [...]

Green Tomato and Chipotle Mac & Cheese

Green Tomato and Chipotle Mac & Cheese

Hello, summer. With your abundance of tangy green tomatoes, your abundance of soul-melting heat, and your abundance of why-waste-my-time-flat-ironing-my-hair-when-it’s-just-going-to-look-like-crap-in-11-seconds-anyway humidity. I can only help you with one of those things. The other two can typically be fixed by drinking any one of these. This summery mac & cheese is spiked with minced chipotles in adobo [...]

Loaded Queso Fries

Loaded Fries with Chile con Queso

“You’re going to get me kicked off the internet for this.” Not the first time I’ve said those words to Jason… probably won’t be the last, either. But he has a point. There is no such thing as too much queso. Nor is there any shortage of things to do with the leftovers. Especially if [...]

Blood Orange, Spinach, and Quinoa Salad

How excited am I that blood oranges are back? That excited ^. Also? This excited: Last spring, we planted a tiny blood orange tree in the backyard. And somehow it survived. We won’t let any blooms go to fruit this year but next year, man. Next year. Besides margaritas, one of my other favorite things [...]

Roasted Cauliflower

Roasted Cauliflower

It’s mid January. And you’re probably still eating your vegetables, right? A couple of months ago, I shared a killer-addictive recipe for roasted cauliflower. Who uses “killer-addictive” to describe cauliflower? Someone who puts browned butter, prosciutto, and sage on cauliflower. That’s who.
