Shrimp Creole

January 30, 2012

Here’s a healthy weeknight dish for you… My mom-in-law made it over the holidays and it was so easy and tasty that I nabbed the recipe and whipped it up for dinner as soon as we got home. It’s super easy and yields a good amount of food that reheats nicely (if you’re into leftovers…which […]


No-Mayo Potato Salad

July 10, 2011

My oven died last week while roasting the potatoes for this salad. I should probably go ahead and get that fixed. Clearly, there hasn’t been any baking going on around here. For this salad, roasted potatoes aren’t even required; I think it’s just as tasty when you simply boil the potatoes. My sister shared this […]

Growing up, this was one of my all-time favorite foods. In recent years, I’ve really only eaten it when it shows up on the table around the holidays, and I usually don’t make it myself. I made this recipe for the first time earlier year and it was easy and awesome. Right before we left […]


Easy Homemade Salsa

May 6, 2011

I made some salsa yesterday in honor of Cinco de Mayo and I was totally pleased with the result. I’d never made it before and couldn’t believe how easy it was. If you are looking for an “authentic” recipe- I don’t really know what one should tasted like. If you are looking to make something […]

I can’t believe that neglected to share this recipe during butternut squash season. It’s one of my absolute favorites. I’ve made it so many times since I discovered it over a year ago because I often crave this specific combination of flavors: roasted sweet squash, crunchy red onions and chickpeas bathed in a tangy, nutty […]


Red Pepper-Walnut Spread

April 13, 2011

I bought a giant red pepper a little while back and completely forgot about it until I found it in the back of my fridge mid-cleanse. Since it was about to spoil and I couldn’t eat right then and there, I roasted it, cut it up and stuck it into a jar.  I forgot about […]


Simple Carrot-Ginger Soup

April 11, 2011

I can see!!! Sort of. If you haven’t been following along, I had a corrective eye surgery a week ago called PRK and my vision has been slightly impaired since then. Everything went well, but this particular procedure has a lengthy recovery time- so while it no longer feels like someone scratched my eyes out, […]


Spaghetti Squash

March 29, 2011

I recently discovered spaghetti squash and it has become one of my new favorite veggies. The shell resembles an oblong yellow melon and the flesh becomes tender and stringy when cooked. Because of its texture and mild flavor, it is often used as a pasta substitute (not that it tastes anything like pasta). It’s super […]


Beet Ravioli

March 22, 2011

For Valentine’s Day last month, D took me to Al Di La, an immensely popular family-owned Italian restaurant in Brooklyn (that usually has a sizable wait since they don’t take reservations). I ordered one of their signature dishes, the casunziei (which is basically ravioli in a slightly different form). I fell in love with the […]


Kale and White Bean Soup

March 21, 2011

I wore a skirt this weekend and my legs saw the light of day for the first time since October. They were sort of glowing in a bad way. Spring officially arrived yesterday, and it totally felt like it until I emerged from my cavernous walk-up this morning to a day that feels more like […]
