Jalapeno Popper Potato Skins {HUGE Giveaway: $50 Williams-Sonoma Gift Card, GO Veggie! Products, and More}

Jalapeno Popper Potato Skins

I’m a pretty big wuss when it comes to spicy food.

What the Pakistani guy at our favorite local restaurant calls “medium” is my absolute limit, and even then I can only get down a bowl of their curry if I have a loaf of their fresh bread in my hand to eat intermittently. Total wimp, I know. (But dang, they like it hot!!) (more…)

Easy Chicken Parm Soup

Something I’ve realized about myself is that I just about always defer to making food from scratch. (more…)

Harvest Kale Salad with Roasted Acorn Squash, Toasted Hazelnuts, and Apple-Cinnamon Vinaigrette {Let Them Eat Kale Cookbook Giveaway}

Harvest Kale Salad with Roasted Acorn Squash, Toasted Hazelnuts, and Apple-Cinnamon Dressing

From first bite, I’ve always been a kale-lover, but that might be because the first time I had it I was an adult. (My mom has a serious dislike of all leafy greens so she literally never made them – not once! – for my sister and I growing up. But don’t worry, we weren’t veggie-deprived! She was still of the strict belief that every meal should include a vegetable.) (more…)

Tri-Color Quinoa, White Bean, and Bell Pepper Salad {And a $50 Bob’s Red Mill Gift Card Giveaway}

Tri-Color Quinoa, White Bean, and Bell Pepper Salad

When I don’t feel like cooking and I ask Mike to cook for us, we inevitably end up with one of two things for dinner: eggs or foul m’demmas (an Egyptian dish of mashed fava beans with garlic, tomato, parsley, cumin, lemon, and olive oil).

Now, I love eggs in all their incarnations, and Egyptian food is always a favorite. But sometimes I wish the hubby would whip up something different, like, oh I don’t know, say a roast chicken with gravy or beef bourguignon. (Wishful thinking, right?) (more…)

The Ultimate Panini Press Cookbook {Review and Giveaway}

The Ultimate Panini Press Cookbook

I want to start off telling you about one of my favorite new cookbooks by saying that this book is not just for sandwich-lovers! Of course sandwich aficionados will be sated beyond words with the huge variety of paninis, but Kathy Strahs, author of the Panini Happy blog and The Ultimate Panini Press Cookbook, creatively shows just how much a panini press can do beyond making sandwiches.

You can make things like Grilled Smashed Potatoes, Spinach-Feta Quinoa Cakes, Grilled Brie with Honey and Toasted Pecans, Grilled Apple Turnovers, and get ready for it – Homemade Ice Cream Cones! I can’t even tell you how excited I was to discover all these other uses for the panini press…uses that had never even entered my wildest imagination.

The recipes are fantastic, so let’s dive right in… (more…)

BLEND Holiday Volume 1 is Here! {E-Book Launch + Giveaway}

Holiday Volume 1 Cover

The holidays are without a doubt my favorite time of year.

Everything about this season feels magical…fall foliage (back home, anyway! There aren’t too many leaves changing colors here in Kuwait, lol), fuzzy blankets, cozy comfort foods for dinner, shopping for Christmas presents, watching festive movies, and of course indulging in holiday flavored drinks. Lattes like Pumpkin Spice, Gingerbread, and Peppermint Mocha are just a few of my favs.

Like so many of you out there, I want to be able to enjoy these seasonal flavors while still eating clean. I want something that is fabulously delicious and equally nourishing, and above all, I don’t want to feel deprived. It’s a woman’s prerogative to want it all, right? (more…)

Shells Bolognaise – the whole family loved this dish!

We all know cooking with your kids is important for so many reasons…but how many of us actually take the time to really get our kids involved in cooking as often as we’d like to?

There are a million reasons not to: soccer practice, a scouts meeting, the baby is sick, you’d have to run to the grocery store first, or even just the fact that it’s nearing the end of a busy day and you’re beat and take-out is sounding pretty darn good. Even so, despite every reason not to cook with your child there is an even more important reason to do so: it’s one of the most important skills you’ll ever teach them and one of the deepest passions you’ll instill in them. Marilyn Cappellino, author of the children’s book series Mangia! makes it easy. (more…)
