Meatloaf with Mushroom Gravy

It seems fitting that I post a meatloaf recipe on the eve of my mom’s birthday as it was one of her specialties and a dish that never disappointed.  Unfortunately, we don’t have an official record of her recipe as this was one that she always threw together with some meat, ketchup, bread crumbs, and […]

Mom’s Steak Tips

With only three ingredients – soy sauce, bourbon, and oil, this is the only way I remember my mom ever making steak tips. My mother never drank, but she was always sure to have a bottle of bourbon tucked away for this recipe.  It was one of those ‘special treat’ dinners that we only had […]

The Sausage & Spinach Stuffed Portabellini Mushroom Experiment

Walking through the grocery store this afternoon we found some mini portobello mushrooms that quickly found their way into our cart.  After spending the last few weekends out of town we were excited to ‘treat ourselves’ with a homemade meal of steak tips and green beans (post coming soon).  As an appetizer I made some […]

The Harissa Breakfast Bowl Experiment

Harissa, I’m in love!  Over the course of the last year I’ve eagerly saved several recipes that highlight this North African hot pepper paste such as The Book Cooks’ one pan roasted chicken.  Some reading led me to the fact that each brand can have a slightly different flavor, and so I picked up a […]

Farro and Mushroom Stuffed Acorn Squash

This is my 100th post, and I am SO happy that it gets to be this delicious dish.  Last week, while on vacation, I had lots of time to catch up on reading some of my favorite blogs and cataloging ‘things to make.’ During that process, I stumbled upon this amazing recipe from Figs and […]

Beef and Lentil Shepard’s Pie

For as many years as I can remember, my Baba’s favorite Christmas gift was a ‘food box’ from my parents containing her favorite grocery and pantry items. Each year the same old sturdy tomato box was dug out of the garage with the top pre-wrapped for easy opening and re-use.  This tradition initially started as […]

Asian Turkey & Quinoa Meatballs

Every January my favorite online Yoga Guru Adrienne hosts a 30 days of yoga ‘event’ where she posts consecutive free videos to help you reconnect with an at-home practice. Today, while on the mat, she commented: “use this space to play and explore!”  Her motto of ‘find what feels good’ emphasizes not just forcing yourself […]

Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

I have a love / hate relationship with what I will call the appetizer zone — that time after the guests arrive but before dinner is served.  While the most masterful chefs time everything perfectly, I am usually running around tidying and stirring while simultaneously greeting guests.  Inevitably, while chatting with folks or having a […]

The Eggs Baked in a Portobello Mushroom Experiment

With one remaining portobello mushroom in the fridge I set out to make myself a breakfast treat inspired by this recipe and my favorite motto – put an egg on it!   The process was straightforward.  I first sprayed the mushroom with olive oil and seasoned it with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  Then I […]

Asian Lettuce Cups

If you haven’t yet heard of the podcast Gastropod ,which “looks at food through the lens of science and history”, and you enjoy learning about various ingredients or how cuisines have shifted over time, then you must go download it today! I was lucky enough to attend a taping earlier this week which also happened to […]
