Creamy Wheat Berry Porridge with Gingered Blueberry Topping {Vegan}

We’re a week into the New Year, and I’m always curious as to whether people make New Year’s resolutions or not.

I’ve noticed that people I talk to are split just about down the middle in their line of thinking; about half make resolutions at the start of a New Year and the other half says they try to make a resolution any time a change is needed. (more…)

Herbed Chicken and Brown Rice Spanakopita Bowls

I don’t know who first came up with the idea of a meal in a bowl (for some reason, I feel like it was a fast food chain!), but whoever it was is a food genius. (more…)

Creamy Almond Brown Rice Pudding

It’s been a while since I talked about our pudding obsession.

Our obsession hasn’t gone anywhere, but I don’t want to bombard and overwhelm you with pudding, of all things. That would just be weird. (more…)

2-Grain Vegetable Salad with Chickpeas and Feta

“You want to make potato salad again?”, Mike asked me one day.

We were headed to a potluck pool party later that day and he was apparently sick of potato salad. (I can’t blame him though; I brought our favorite potato salad to three different parties in the past month! Truth be told, I’m a little sick of potato salad too.) (more…)

Bulgur Wheat Salad with Pomegranate + Walnut

Friday, October 4th, 2013


The first time I made this salad was last summer for a cookout at my parents’ house before Mike and I left for Kuwait. I wanted to bring a hearty salad, and I was trying to clean out my pantry and fridge when I found a bag of bulgur wheat in the pantry and a bottle of pomegranate molasses in the fridge. For some reason I thought combining the two in one dish was the best idea ever.

As strange as this pairing might sound, it is pretty fantastic. (more…)

Millet Pilaf with Roasted Carrot + Fennel

Monday, April 29th, 2013


Millet is one of those things that doesn’t get a lot of action on the dinner table; actually, it’s probably more likely to be found in your birdfeeder.

But (I’m going to try to convince you that) it’s a wonderful addition to mealtime too. (more…)

Wheat Berry Salad with Fruity Vinaigrette

Monday, July 9th, 2012

I had this salad for lunch four days in a row last week, and now that it’s gone I’ve been craving it.  It’s the sort of thing I could eat once a day all summer long and not get sick of.  Not only is it healthy, satisfying, and incredibly delicious, but it keeps amazingly well in the fridge all week (there’s nothing better than making lunch once and being set for four days…I think I’m going to make a double batch next time and be set with my hubby’s lunches too).

But its addictive deliciousness is what keeps me coming back for more.  The secret to how good it is?  There’s a couple actually.  The first is the savory/sweet combo, especially from the scallions and dried cherries in this salad.  Don’t skimp on either.  The second secret is the wheat berries.

Bean and Barley Salad

I don’t know about you, but I prefer a romantic Valentine’s Day meal at home over a meal at most restaurants. That way you get to enjoy a quiet meal with your loved one in the comfort of your own home without any waiting or traveling…and I’m guessing the food is just as good (or better!). (more…)
