Double Dark Chocolate Muffins with Almonds and White Chocolate Drizzle

A while ago, a friend and I were at Starbucks and she ordered a chocolate muffin. Now, I admit that I’ve sampled a lot of baked goods that Starbucks has to offer, but their chocolate muffins – never! I was intrigued and it looked good, but I resisted ordering it.

But it got me thinking that I need to come up with a good recipe for homemade chocolate muffins… (more…)

Savory Pineapple Salad

Most of us go through phases…

For example, I’ll go through the same routine for months, and then suddenly wake up one day and decide I want to completely switch up my workout program, rearrange the bedroom furniture, and – you know what else? – have broiled fish with roasted vegetables for breakfast. (Yeah, weird.) (more…)

Sweet and Sour Chicken

One of my favorite lines in Friends is when Chandler is moving in with Monica and he and Joey are enjoying their last night together. Not knowing what the other was doing, Joey ordered pizza and Chandler ordered Chinese; Joey (who is of Italian descent) told Chandler (who is really obviously not of Chinese descent) something like, “It’s kind of nice…me bringing the food of my ancestors and you bringing the food of yours.” What made it so hilarious was Chandler’s reaction. (Gosh, I miss that show!) (more…)

Quick Lasagna Casserole with Bowtie Pasta {aka Lazy Lasagna}

Not too long ago, I made a huge batch of bison, bean, and vegetable soup. It was, if I do say so myself, pretty fabulous.

Falafel-Spiced Roasted Chickpeas

I remember the first time I bit into fresh falafel.

Mike and I were in Amman, Jordan on our honeymoon, out and about just strolling along arm-in-arm, the way you’d expect people on their honeymoon to do. We passed a guy frying up falafel on a street corner; simultaneously, Mike’s stomach growled and I inhaled deeply, asking what that amazing smell was.

You know we had to stop and get some. (more…)

Grain-Free Thai Eggplant Tempura with Spicy Garlic-Soy Dipping Sauce

I think I’ve probably mentioned before that although I try with all my might not to be an impulse shopper, I’m a huge sucker for cutsie foods. (more…)

10-Minute Homemade Red Enchilada Sauce

I’m nothing approaching a homesteader (heck, I’m really not even a camper!), but I like a DIY cooking project as much as the next girl. This is why it seriously surprised me that it never even dawned on me to make homemade enchilada sauce until recently.

Not long ago, enchiladas were requested for dinner and as my pantry was bereft of canned sauce, I knew I either had to head to the grocery store for just a single item (which I was not about to do…this is one of my pet peeves!) or get creative. (more…)
