Garlicky Red Quinoa Patties with Mango Black Bean Salsa

One of the perks of living in Florida is that when fruit trees bear fruit, people suddenly have more than they know what do with, and the wealth inevitably gets shared. I remember waking up to a huge box of mangos on my front porch one morning when I lived there during law school…

One of my friend’s parents’ had a mango tree in their backyard (along with a grapefruit tree, those lucky ducks) and I was absolutely certain the fruit was from her family (who also frequently dropped off oranges and avocados that they got from a friend who also had fruit trees). (more…)

Butternut Butterscotch Pudding

Friday, March 21st, 2014

Thank you to General Mills for sponsoring this post. I like to make sure that my family gets as many veggies in as possible, even in unexpected places; along those lines, we enjoyed this Butternut Butterscotch Pudding and I hope your family does too.

Butternut Butterscotch Pudding

There is no food that reminds me of school lunches as a kid more than pudding does.

(Except maybe tunafish sandwiches, which were ubiquitous in my lunchbox, despite my pleading with my mom for something else. It was a rare happy occasion when a fluffernutter found its way in there, but when it did, what a bartering tool it was! It was the gold of the lunch table, and anyone was willing to give up anything to get it. But back to pudding.)

I think my mom thought chocolate was my favorite flavor (which would make sense…me and chocolate go way back) because it’s what she used to pack most frequently. But butterscotch was what I was really after, at least when it came to pudding. Heck, to me it was even worth trading a fluffernutter for. (more…)

Cream of Caramelized Onion and Cheese Chowder

Being a food blogger means that I rarely get to make the same dish twice, even if it’s a dish that I really love. (Because a dish made and not photographed for the blog is a wasted dish. Sigh. That is, in fact, the twisted reality of a food blogger, lol.) But those rare “wasted” meals when I get to sneak in a favorite recipe a second – or third – time are pure bliss. (more…)

5-Minute Healthy Chocolate Mug Cake {Paleo}

Like I mentioned here, I’m kind-of particular about my cake. (As Mike likes to tell me, I’m kind-of particular about a lot of food-related stuff, but that remains to be proven and is an entirely different discussion for another day.)

Anyway. I don’t think there is anything more disappointing than seeing an absolutely stunning cake and then sinking your teeth into what you think will be pure bliss, and realizing that it tastes like rubbery-textured cardboard.

Such a bummer. (more…)

Macaroni and Cheese with Cauliflower, Tuna, and Egyptian Roumy Cheese

This dish is basically a grown-up version of Tuna Helper. (Despite my mom being the anti-processed food extremist that she was, which I now thank her for, even I tried Tuna Helper as a kid.) (more…)

Blackberry & Apple Crumble

If someone told you, Quick, name three Irish desserts!, my guess is that you’d name something with Guinness or Bailey’s Irish Cream.

Or something green, because Irish or not, any green treats are fair game for St. Paddy’s Day.

Friends, I have a new dessert idea. (more…)

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

Chicken, Corn, and Bell Pepper Enchiladas

A while ago, a reader requested recipes that freeze and reheat well. Things like casseroles or stews that make good gifts for neighbors or new moms, or are perfect for keeping stocked in your own freezer for busy nights. (more…)
