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…)

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…)

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…)

White Bean Casserole with Crunchy Onion Topping

Monday, November 12th, 2012

This month’s 5 Star Makeover theme is holiday green bean casserole. I know most people have strong feelings one way or the other about this casserole; personally, I love it, but only if it’s fresh. Unlike most Thanksgiving dinner leftovers, this dish seems to lose its magic once re-heated.

At first for this makeover I was planning to do a more gourmet version of this classic side dish (an “ultimate” version, if you will), making everything from scratch – replacing the canned fried onions with homemade mini onion rings, making a lovely velvety béchamel instead of canned mushroom soup, and intensifying the mushroom flavor by using a mix of wild shrooms.

Then I thought about it some more, and did a quick Google search. As you might have guessed, quite a few bloggers have already shared gorgeous versions of homemade (or mostly homemade, which totally counts in my book) green bean casserole.

So onto Plan B. (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…)

Sweet & Sour Cabbage with Beans & Sausage

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

I love cabbage for so many reasons.  Of course for its many health benefits (according to Organic Facts, a few of the health benefits include:  “treatment of constipation, stomach ulcers, headache, excess weight, skin disorders, eczema, jaundice, scurvy, rheumatism, arthritis, gout, eye disorders, heart diseases, ageing, and Alzheimer’s disease”…sounds a little bit like a cure-all doesn’t it?), but I have to admit, also because it holds up so well.

White Bean Chowder

Is this it?, I asked, bewilderedly looking out the car window at what could have been any dive in any sketchy area of any town.

With a nod, Mike assured me that this was in fact the place.  (more…)

Cabbage, White Bean, and Sausage Soup

One of my favorite things about winter is making soup, and even though I make it a lot, I make so many different kinds that we never get sick of it.

Cabbage soup – in any of its variations – is one of my favorites. (more…)
