Sweet Potato, Black Bean, and Goat Cheese Pizza

Black Bean Sweet Potato Pizza

As the smell of bubbling and melted goat cheese fills the kitchen, I turned to Jason and say, “This pizza is going to knock your socks off.” He doesn’t believe me. But he nods as if uninterested and then pretends that he’s not totally scoping out my pizza. And I pretend that I don’t see [...]

Spinoccoli Pizza

Spinoccoli Pizza

We have pizza night once a week. At least. And then there was that time (last week) when some magical switch flipped and my husband became completely obsessed with making pizza himself. HIMSELF. A glorious week, it was! Jason brings dependability and stability to the relationship – and pizza nights – with sausage and pepperoni. [...]

PPQ: Field Greens with Spiced Walnuts and Goat Cheese

Field Greens with Spiced Walnuts and Goat Cheese

My contribution for this week’s Project Pastry Queen recipe is last week’s Project Pastry Queen recipe. The group is baking up Snow-Tipped Sand Tarts this week. But I’m suffering from the usual post-Thanksgiving food coma burn out so turning on the oven for 5 minutes to roast a small batch of spiced walnuts was really [...]

Kale with Pine Nuts and Garlic Vinaigrette

November 25, 2011

I woke up today with a jumbo-sized carb hangover. And you might have, too. Unless you were born with willpower. And then, well, I’m totally jealous. Last night, barely 30 minutes after I crammed the last load of dishes into the dishwasher and swore off cooking forever, I was in the kitchen, toasting pine nuts [...]

Stove Top Mac and Cheese

I’d like to blame the Toddler for this mac & cheese post. But the truth is, I’m the mac & cheese eater of the house. I often joke that my “Emergency Kit” contains a cake mix, a box of shells & cheese, and a bag of Funyuns. If by “joke” I mean that’s exactly what’s [...]

Tomato Gratin

Tomato Gratin

Growing up, summer dinners were pretty predictable. We always seemed to have at least one watermelon in the garden that the squirrels and birds hadn’t found. And there were always plenty, plenty of tomatoes. We might have hot dogs, chips, and tomatoes. Or chicken-friend steak, mashed potatoes, and tomatoes. Or lasagna, garlic bread, and – [...]

Penne with Parmesan and Pepper

Penne with Parmesan, Pepper, and Peppery Greens

Some of my most favorite things are in this one-bowl dinner: Pasta – Definitely something I had to learn to love while dating the Foodie Groom (it was probably 75% of his pre-me diet). Today, I buy Dreamfields Pasta. I wasn’t bribed with cookies, money, or a year’s supply of pasta to tell you that. [...]

WHB: Rosemary on the menu. Again.

April 3, 2007
Asparagus Pizza with Rosemary and Goat Cheese

I just love Weekend Herb Blogging – it has inspired me to plant more than just sage and basil in my herb garden this year. I liked the idea of planting more herbs but I really wasn’t that sure what I’d do with them. That’s where WHB comes in – whether I participate or not, [...]
