Sour Cream Noodle Bake

This is another recipe that I made a lot last year and apparently never found the time to blog. Sorry about that, folks. It’s from the ever-popular Ree Drummond, a.k.a., the Pioneer Woman, so you might have already seen it over on her blog. It’s an easy, comforting weeknight dinner that we all love. If […]

cookies, dessert

Salted Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I went through a phase a few summers ago where I made these cookies every few weeks. They’re just that addictive. I don’t know about you all, but I love a good mash up of salty and sweet. That’s where these Salted Chocolate Chunk Cookies shine. Salted Chocolate Chunk CookiesSmitten Kitchen 1 stick unsalted butter, […]

beans, easy weeknight meal, Indian, vegetarian

Red Kidney Bean Curry with Indian Spiced Cauliflower and Potatoes and Cucumber Scallion Raita

Well that title is quite the mouthful, isn’t it? If I’d thought about it, I would have taken photos of each of these items separately, but alas. This is a vegetarian meal that Steve actually enjoys. I’ve been really into homemade Indian food lately because it’s the only way Katie can enjoy the delicious flavors […]

pasta, seafood

Spaghetti with Crab

This is another draft post I never published. At least this is more recent – late summer 2017. My mom had been down the shore with her sisters and she brought home a bunch of steamed crabs. I find picking crabs to be so therapeutic and I had a blast getting every last morsel of […]

fish, soup

Fish Chowder

I was going through all the draft posts I never published and came across this one for Fish Chowder from a few years ago. You can tell because the soup pot is sitting on the table I used to use for my blog photos when we still lived in our townhouse. We moved to our […]

Roast Chicken with Warm Bread Salad and Crispy Potatoes

After years of cooking, I’m rarely intimidated by anything in the kitchen. But I’ll admit to being a wee bit nervous before I spatchcocked this chicken. It ended up being a piece of cake and now I can’t imagine roasting a chicken any other way. Crispy skin, moist meat…what’s not to like! The original recipe […]

chicken, easy weeknight meal, rice

Food Cart Curry Chicken

I recently rediscovered Ruth Reichl. I actually wrote my senior thesis about two of her books and I can’t believe I haven’t kept up with her all these years. One of her new books, My Kitchen Year, had so many amazing recipes that Steve joked I’d tagged all of them. This one for Food Cart […]

easy weeknight meal, fish, sushi

Salmon Sushi Bowls

We recently discovered that the salmon we buy from the local fish market is sushi grade. Ahhhh! Such a game changer. We’ve gone a bit overboard since then, buying huge slabs of salmon so we can grill some on a cedar plank and cut up the rest for sashimi. One time Steve bought a whole […]

curry, Indian, nut-free

Nut-Free Vegetable Korma

Indian restaurants are off-limits since Katie is allergic to nuts, but because I don’t want her to miss out on all the amazing food I’ve spent the last few years slowly building a repertoire of dishes I can make at home. Vegetable korma is my favorite Indian dish to order whenever we try a new […]
