Whole30: The Craft and Strawberry-Avocado Salsa

April 3, 2014

I would literally steal candy from a baby right now. LITERALLY. Right this second. Even if that baby had a half-eaten, gag-inducing Cadbury Creme Egg. The legit ones. The ones that look like a real egg. Wrapped in chocolate. [SHUDDER] Of course, that’s after I would punch the How I Met Your Mother writers in [...]

Spicy Honey-Glazed Salmon

Aside from pick-up-phone-and-order-Chinese, this might be the fastest non-cereal, non-PB&J, non-Hot-Pocket dinner ever. 5 minutes of prep, 7 minutes under the broiler. All while you’re microwaving some steam-in-bag broccoli or reheating the leftover roasted asparagus from the night before. Dinner? Done. Just like that. The spice rub comes from an oldie but insanely goodie, Spicy [...]

Goat Cheese & Asparagus Grilled Cheese

Who else went overboard and bought nearly 6lbs of asparagus because it was $.88/lb? Welcome to the hoarder club! Who else has eaten roasted asparagus for breakfast, lunch, and dinner pretty much every day? Welcome to the we-clearly-don’t-understand-hoarding club! Cheap asparagus means two things: 1) Spring is just around the corner (and seriously, could it [...]

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

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. Cauliflower is in the market now and the heads are abundant, cheap and [...]

Baked Turkey & Cranberry Sliders with Browned Sage Butter

‘Tis the season to pour melted butter on *&^#! –Me. Festive and classy. That Jason is one lucky guy. I did mean it when I said that the internet will always have room for one more baked slider recipe. And I did mean it when I said that this was the season to pour melted [...]

Stovetop Crab macaroni & Cheese

I spent almost my entire October doing nothing that was on my To Do List. Or fun. We didn’t have time to move this blog over to its new location at The Brewer and The Baker (but that’s still coming), we let the blog’s 7th birthday go by (that, too, is still coming), we almost [...]

Pineapple-Marinated Beef Fajitas

Pineapple-Marinated Beef Fajitas

This is what I look forward to most, living in southeast Texas. Not fajitas, but this time of year. (Although, let’s be honest – has any culture produced a more amazing, fascinating cuisine that even gets close to TexMex?) It’s open-windows during the day, almost-cool-enough-to-consider-a-light-cardigan over a tank top at night. These next few weeks? [...]
