Seven Vegetable Couscous

Last night, the world in general, and American women in particular, lost an icon. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Notorious RBG, died at the age of 87. The tiny legal legend was a champion for equal rights for women and the queen of dissent on the Supreme Court. The news of her death hit me harder... Continue Reading →

Sour Beets

Since having our baby girl, we realized that having friends and family over for dinner is a little more difficult than it once was. We love cooking and hosting, but given that she goes to bed in the 6 o'clock hour and lets be honest, most people are coming over to see her and not... Continue Reading →

Beef Barley Soup

A lot of our family and friends think because we have this food blog and enjoy 'fancy' dinner date nights, that we only eat complex, homemade dishes for every single meal. Hate to burst the bubble, but that is far from the truth. We obviously do love experimenting with new recipes and tend to take... Continue Reading →

Dinner Salad with a Poached Egg

In my mid-to-late 20s, there was this salad I used to make myself all the time. I'm talking maybe two or three times a week for months to years. (Katie & Terry probably remember this phase of my life well 😂🤣). I saw it originally in a magazine somewhere I think, though I can't remember... Continue Reading →

Mint & Feta Topped Eggplant

After making Minty Watermelon, Cucumber & Feta Salad last week, we had some leftover mint.  By "some leftover mint," I really mean, "Did this package of mint grow exponentially more mint?" I feel like it's pretty much impossible to use all the mint in a package and even more impossible to use all the mint that... Continue Reading →

Chermoula Carrots

One of the best things about writing this blog is the introduction to foods and dishes that I didn't know about beforehand. Today, I learned about chermoula! (Or charmoula - like so many words translated from the original Arabic, this one has more than one spelling.) When we decided to make our Tangy Moroccan Meatballs... Continue Reading →

Zucchini Fritters

Zucchini season may be over, but we can usually find decent looking ones in the fall around here. Sorry for not eating exactly seasonally, but you know what is perfectly fall-appropriate? A big bowl of soup! And what perfectly accompanies a nice big bowl of soup? Zucchini fritters. So in a roundabout way, zucchini fritters... Continue Reading →

Southwest Steak Chopped Salad

We eat massive salads for dinner many nights. We never share them, because usually they're not all that organized - it's usually a look in the fridge, pull out some vegetables, and top them with a protein kind of adventure. Since it's Monday and the beginning of the week, we were a little more coordinated.... Continue Reading →
