Shishito Peppers

I love shishito peppers. I feel they’ve replaced brussels sprouts as the go-to appetizer on menus, and I am here for it. That being said, I’m also 10000% behind people learning how to make them for themselves at home. It’s incredibly easy, and you can be serving your family, roommates, and friends deceptively fancy appetizers […]

Weeknight Spaghetti (Squash)

I am a HUGE pasta person. 100% Italian, with some of my fondest childhood summer memories involving going to my grandmother’s where she’d had vats on vats of spaghetti with homemade sauce and pepperoni. Needless to say, I take my pasta quite seriously and get a bit skeptical of the carbo-skimping. So, after a long […]

Mozzarella, Corn, Tomato, and Basil Salad

Any caprese fans out there? You may have noticed 3/4 of the ingredients in the title are the caprese staples. I was tempted to call this recipe “Corn Caprese” it “Caprese with Corn” but neither of those had the right rings to them. In any case, the flavors are different and this feels more like […]

Winter Veggie & Grain Bowls Pt. I

Think of this recipe as a base from which to customize. Sure, I used portabella mushrooms, romaine, Delicata squash, and quinoa, for example, but if you have broccoli, sweet potato, arugula and farro in your fridge then by all means use that instead. The point is: grains + roasted veggies + lettuce + fresh leaves. […]

Roasted Delicata Squash with Chimichurri

I am a sweet potato fiend, so have been trying to branch out into squashes to diversify my winter sides. Little did I know, delicata squash, the first squash I tried branching out to, was known as “sweet potato squash.” Par for the course, I guess. I came across this recipe waiting for a train, […]

Garlicky Jalapeño Green Beans with Hazelnuts and Tahini Dressing

When I think of making green beans, I either jump to the soy or lemon preparations. Don’t get me wrong- these are two great ways to prepare them, but I thought it was time to add another option to the rotation. Enter, these, prepared with toasted hazelnuts and an amazing tahini spread, courtesy of an […]

5 Ingredient Salad Dressing (Cilantro)

Do you know the phrase, “Everything but the kitchen sink”? That is how I would describe the genesis of this dressing. I have a bad habit of excitedly buying fresh herbs my recipes call for, using them once in said recipe, and promptly forgetting about them in the bottom drawer of our refrigerator until they’re […]
