  • Rye Chicken Schnitzel with Mustard Sauce

    The chicken recipe itself was fairly standard – pound the chicken thin; dip in flour, egg, and rye breadcrumbs; shallow fry and serve immediately – but turned out beautifully. The slightly decadent mustard cream…

  • 30-Second Microwave Hot Fudge

    You should know that I’m a very picky hot fudge eater. It also makes 2 cups of sauce, which is a problem in and of itself due to my lack of age-appropriate self-control. So…

  • Mushroom and Farro Soup

    A bowl of soup, well, that’s what I did. Mushroom and farro soup, to be specific. And as I was making the soup, which only dragged me away from Up All Night…

  • Stone Fruit Salad with Lemon-Lavender Syrup

    Sweet cherries eaten ice cold from the fridge, plums so perfect that the juice dribbles down your chin with every bite, peaches baked until hot and bubbly under a buttery crumble – these fruits…

  • Fruit and Nut Bars

    I’ve made healthy, easy, quick dinner-time food, because when I think about eating healthy, I think about mealtimes. But truth be told, I’m pretty good about eating healthy meals – I rarely eat…

    This salad is something special – cherry tomatoes roasted with maple syrup until they taste like candy, hearty black beans, crunchy toasted almonds, and fresh feta cheese. If you use really good ingredients…

  • White Bean, Kale, and Pesto Soup

    I’ve tried a lot of recipes for soups. Portuguese kale soup, corn and cheddar chowder, minestrone, pork and black eyed pea chili, and this one. I love how the pesto melts into…

  • Shakshuka with Sausage and Potatoes

    Light and nutritious meals that take 30 minutes or less to put together, but that don’t skimp on flavor. I don’t always accomplish all of those things – like on the nights I…

  • Eggs and New Potatoes with Green Olive Pesto

    I’ve tried the raw kale and avocado salad and absolutely loved it, but the roasted fennel with cranberries and chestnuts didn’t do it for me. Also good were the indian spiced scrambled eggs…

  • Feta and Lentil Tabbouleh

    I’m very pleased with the recipe I ended up choosing – the feta and lentil tabbouleh pictured here. In terms of health benefits, it packs a serious punch. The combination of the…
