my april menu

April was a crazy busy month. We had a wedding in Marfa (a friend recaps it here), a surprise 40th birthday and we spent A LOT of time unpacking in the new house (still a lot more to do).  Not a lot of cooking happened in the beginning since my kitchen was all in boxes, but it was [...]

vegetarian soba noodle stir-fry

I found this recipe in my quest for “real” food. It’s vegetarian. It’s vegan. It’s “real”. It’s customizable. It’s filling. It’s delicious. Substitute any of your favorite veggies for a dish that is all your own. I meant to add mushrooms and obviously that didn’t happen. I think a 1/2 of an onion would be [...]

slow-cooker red curry beef

I found this recipe in my Paleo Slow Cooking cookbook. I think it’s safe to say that I am slightly obsessed with red curry. I could put it on anything, well, almost anything. I’ve put it on pad thai, fried rice, and roasted veggies. It exotic and delicious and, to my surprise, easy to make [...]

I have recently been trying to put all of my recipes that I’ve ripped from magazines in one place… pinterest.

menu recap [week 10]

After a Sunday dinner of deep dish pizza at Savastano’s we were left with a LOT of leftovers. So our dinners for Monday & Tuesday weren’t too exciting and didn’t involve cooking. Wednesday, I attended a gnocchi cooking class at the Urban Kitchen on Cherry Street with Molly. So I didn’t really cook that night either. [...]

Damn Good Chili

This year it seems like we’ve barely had a winter (I’m sure I just jinxed us). Sure, we’ve had some cold days, but for the most part it’s been pretty mild. It was almost 70 degrees on New Years Eve this year! A cold front came in that evening and we decided it was a [...]

Chipotle Roasted Chicken &Vegetable Pizza

In my menu recap from last week, I described this recipe as follows: This “pizza” was really tasty with a lot of different flavors. I say “pizza” with quotes because it isn’t your typical pizza. No hot, melty cheese, or your regular pizza sauce or toppings. I would say this is more of a flat bread [...]

Meatless Monday: Roasted Veggies [square]

There are probably a million “recipes” out there for roasted vegetables. You don’t need them. This is why: All you need is some olive oil, spices, and your favorite vegetables. That’s it. You’re done. Ingredients a large bowl of your favorite veggies, chopped into bite-size pieces – I used: 2 squash 1 red onion 2 [...]

1 list / 2 meatless meals [square]

When I go to the grocery store or preferably, the farmers’ market, I tend to overbuy vegetables. Nothing wrong with that, especially when it leads to two great meatless meals in one week. I know the list looks rather long, but vegetables are pretty cheap and you can always substitute your favorites for what I [...]

must have dinner

Okay I know you guys probably think that I only make Pioneer Woman recipes. Partly true. The other part of that story is that every time I make one of her recipes it turns out to be delicious. A success. A keeper recipe. Thus, I share it. So maybe it seems like I only use [...]
