Black & White Tacos

Black & White Tacos

There’s bar food. And then there’s post-bar food. Those tacos, those fell into the latter category. After college, I predictably kept the safety-net low-paying, entry-level job as a drone at SkyNet that I used to pay my some of my way through school to work for a bunch of people who undervalued me only slightly [...]

Cheesy Broccoli Quinoa Casserole

Cheesy Broccoli Quinoa Casserole

In my family, Thanksgiving has 3 rules. And they all involve cheese: 1) There must be broccoli & rice casserole. I can bring roasted broccoli for a healthier broccoli dish. But it has to be served alongside of – not instead of – the casserole. 2) I must make the broccoli & rice casserole. Me. [...]

Grilled Hatch Chile Pimento Cheese Sandwiches

Grilled Hatch Pimento Cheese Sandwiches

Grilled cheese night usually means two things: 1) I’m too lazy, or tired, or lazy, or really lazy to cook a “real” dinner and 2) rehashing of the now 8-year-old debate over which cheese makes a “real” grilled cheese sandwich. One of us expects slices of school bus yellow-orange processed cheese food, which melts beautifully [...]

Strawberry Panini with Arugula and Goat Cheese

Strawberry Panini with Arugula and Goat Cheese

I absolutely adore the strawberry + goat cheese combination. Sweet, juicy, in-season strawberries meet a creamy, tangy goat cheese. It’s a combination that knows no limits: appetizers, sandwiches, and even dessert. Toss those strawberries with a good balsamic vinegar and peppery arugula, and pile it on some crusty French bread? There’s a perfect balance, a [...]

Shaved Asparagus Pizza with Goat Cheese and Ricotta

Shaved Asparagus Pizza with Goat Cheese and Ricotta

A few weeks ago, I started a pizza-only Pinterest board. One of the recipes that I pinned was a Shaved Asparagus Pizza that I’d seen on Annie’s Eats. Beautiful asparagus is starting to pop up in the grocery store, at a beautiful price. Any day that a pound of asparagus is cheaper than a gallon [...]

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 [...]
