chicken pot pie

I’m breathing a sigh of relief because my chicken pot pie recipe has been in recipe purgatory for years (yes, you read that correctly) and I’m finally ready to share it with the world. What’s so complicated about pot pie? Absolutely nothing. I was down the endless rabbit hole of changing small recipe details here […]

alfredo pasta with browned butter, cauliflower, and ricotta

If you’re like me, this recipe had you hooked at browned butter. Anytime I see browned butter listed, I don’t care what the recipe is, I want to make it asap. However, the best thing about this recipe is not the browned butter (insert surprised gasp here), but that you are rewarded with a creamy […]

grilled chicken marinade with garlic, lime, and sesame

I have had so much fun grilling this summer that I am a little sad at the thought of letting our grill sit dormant all winter long. I’ve entertained thoughts of becoming “that crazy neighbor” who bundles up and charges outside in the freezing winter temperatures with a full tank of propane and a plate […]

curried chickpea sliders

I cannot resist a good sandwich or slider. Sometimes (ok, a lot of the time) I just crave a refreshing turkey, tuna, or chicken salad sandwich, with all the fixings. What is not to love? It’s basically one stop enjoyment of bread, cheese, avocado, and a savory filling. So, vegetarians and vegans, this recipe is […]

mushroom, corn, and brussels sprout pasta with truffled breadcrumbs

Whenever Patrick and I eat out (usually while traveling) I am always on the hunt for recipe inspiration. I’ll even stoop so low as to take photos of menus (just for idea inspiration, of course), and promptly forget said photo until months later I have a moment of recall. Next ensues a frantic search through […]

baked halibut with shallots and capers

Watch out- my head might have grown a size or two because I’ve been nailing it at the halibut game, if I can be so bold. However, a little bit of well-placed confidence is welcome, because no one wants to splurge on fresh, wild caught halibut and cook it incorrectly. In that unfortunate situation, you […]

jalapeño and bacon corn chowder

I used to think that I did not like chowder because the only chowders I had ever tried were full of clams. Unsolicited fact about me: the only mollusk I am on good terms with is the scallop. They are delectable. But back to chowder… I can’t remember when I first tried a “non-clam” chowder, […]

Bánh mì with pickled vegetables and sriracha mayonnaise

Traveling through Vietnam has been a fantastic experience for the senses. We have seen incredible vistas, inhaled some delicious and not so delicious smells, and eaten our way through every city (of course). Our schedules currently revolve around coffee, breakfast, more Vietnamese coffee, lunch, afternoon snacks, happy hour, dinner, and post-dinner dessert or drinks.  We’ve […]

Falafel with tzatziki sauce

I remember the first time I ever made falafel. Our friends brought over all the ingredients; we blended them together in our food processor, rolled and fried away, and could not stop eating them. I like to think of falafel as fried savory donut holes that count as dinner. But if fried donut holes don’t […]

Whole30 pulled pork lettuce wraps with sesame ginger sauce

I won’t lie to you. Most of the time I’d rather have my wraps or burritos blanketed in fluffy tortillas, pita, or anything resembling carbs. But not in this case. These pork wraps are majestically happy and full of flavor just as they are. Plus, you can eat them guilt-free, knowing that you basically had […]
