Smoky Braised Sausage and White Beans in Savory Peanut Sauce

Until about a week ago, I thought we weren’t going to see much cold weather here.

And then last week hit with the full force of winter; high temps in the teens and about six inches of snow. (After our three previous “snowstorms” that produced less than an inch of accumulated snow each, I was about ready to throw a party to celebrate our snow! Or at least head outside and play in it.)

Sweet and Spicy Beef, Butternut, and White Bean Stew

One of the things I miss most about living in Kuwait is the flea markets.

There was one market in particular that stole my heart… (more…)

Herbed Beef Pasties with Carrot and Parsnip

There are some TV shows that I just don’t expect to get into.

Gotham was like that for me (Batman really isn’t my thing, but oddly enough I felt compelled to not miss an episode), and Downton Abbey was as well. (more…)

Roast Chicken Ratatouille {Paleo}

There is definitely something to be said for meals that come together in 20 minutes or less, and on the opposite side of the spectrum, meals that slow-cook themselves to perfection in a crockpot.

Both require minimal hands-on effort, but still result in something that not only nourishes our families, but also brings them together. (more…)

Cheesy Chicken Vegetable Cobbler

When autumn rolls around with its shorter days and chilly evenings, I always start to feel a little nostalgic.

What that really means is that I start to miss the cold-weather comfort foods that I haven’t had in what feels like forever because the weather has been too warm to really enjoy them. (more…)

Peanut Butter Monte Cristo Club

Peanut Butter Monte Cristo Club

I remember the first time I saw a Monte Cristo on a menu. I was feeling completely grown-up and oh-so-worldly eating at a fancy café downtown with a friend. Where we had driven our 16-year-old selves.

Anyway, the name of the dish caught my eye and as I read through the description I was curious…and captivated.

Always a fan of the savory/salty/sweet combo, I ordered it. (more…)

Dal Makhani (Indian Butter Lentils)

I’m no stranger to Indian food.

In fact, ever since one of my very best friends introduced me to the cuisine in college it’s been a favorite of mine. She started me off on Chicken Tikka Masala (of course thinking that it would be the most certain dish to win me over), but not long after first trying it, my affection for Indian food branched out to any Indian-spiced dish I could get my hands on.

My friend’s father offered to set up a daily food delivery for my friend from a local Indian restaurant. My eyes widened in jealousy and then narrowed in disbelief when she said she turned him down flat. I can’t eat Indian food from a restaurant every day!, she exclaimed. After spending time with her, cooking together, and later visiting home with her where we feasted on her mom’s cooking nightly, I understood what she meant.

Like most cuisines, restaurant-made Indian food doesn’t hold a candle to homemade Indian food. (more…)

Stovetop Tuscan Mac and Cheese

There are the obvious sources of mealtime inspiration, like cookbooks, food magazines, and food blogs. There are friends’ recommendations, and remakes of restaurant favorites.

But how often do we really go to our moms for recipe advice? (I mean after college anyway…my mom was my cooking guru during undergrad!) (more…)
