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…)

Creamed Cabbage

Right before New Year’s, I shared a post with photos of a few recipes that I made, but never blogged for various reasons. In that post was a picture of Creamed Cabbage; the picture itself was not my favorite, but the dish was fantastic. It’s one of those things you can eat every day for a week, and when it’s gone, still wish you had made a bigger batch.

I don’t blame you for bombarding me via email for the recipe. (more…)

Savory Pumpkin + Cheese Stuffed Shells

Savory Pumpkin + Cheese Stuffed Shells

Back home, Friday nights used to be my girls’-night-in sleepover night with my niece Autumn Rose. She’s all of ten now (wow, where did the time go?!), but you’d think she was at least fourteen from the way she looks (tallest in her class!) and the way she acts.

I’ve always been proud of her for being such a healthy eater – her mother drilled it into her from the very beginning and it has done wonders for her in every way. Which is why when I made this for dinner one Friday night late last winter I was completely surprised at her response: I don’t eat stuffed shells…they’re not my thing and I just don’t like them. Ok, first, lol. See what I mean? Ten going on fourteen. And second, this was coming from the girl who voluntarily orders pan-seared fish when eating out (in Disney, nonetheless!), drinks kombucha with me, and laughs in the face of savory green smoothies before gobbling them up (truth be told, I don’t even know many adults who can handle savory green smoothies…they really are an acquired taste!).

The ingredient pictured in my last post is Palestinian couscous, called maftoul. It’s hearty and comforting, making it perfect cold-weather food. I learned how to make it from my Syrian mother-in-law, and she learned how to make it from her Palestinian mother-in-law. Head over to my post on Honest Cooking for the full recipe!

Smoky White Cheddar Mac & Cheese with Leeks {And a Round-Up of Recipes Using Thanksgiving Leftovers}

In just a few days we’ll be enjoying my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner – leftovers! Lately I’ve been going crazy making a sandwich with deli turkey, and I can’t wait to try it with leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. Here’s what goes into that glorious sandwich… (more…)

Roasted Carrot-Apple Soup with Paprika Brown Butter

For about two years now I’ve been hearing the same mantra from one of my favorite foodie friends (who unfortunately isn’t a blogger – but perhaps one day!).

Come on, everyone is doing it!, she coaxed. You know you want to!

Grab some butter and don’t look back! (more…)

Sautéed Kale with Sausage and White Beans

Mike and I always joke that we are much more active in colder months, and this week was a good example. (Side Note: We are cold-weather people…I am so excited for our first snowfall!)

The past seven days have been crazy busy with entertaining…I’ve made roast chicken, a slow-cooking Moroccan-inspired stew (like this one), and even an autumnal-themed luncheon. Now it’s time for a quiet meal and some quick-cooking comfort food. (more…)

Lazy Sauerkraut Pierogi Casserole with Apple

Once the familiar crisp chill of autumn settles in, my mom eases back into her routine of making big traditional comfort meals for our Sunday suppers, instead of casual dinners cooked on the grill. A few years back she started making a dish called Lazy Pierogies that she learned from an old friend of the family. I was recently craving this dish, and as my mom was reading me the recipe over the phone, I saw my next project materialize. (more…)
