Smoky Skillet Shrimp with White Beans

Smoky Skillet Shrimp with White Beans

Here’s something many people would not consider a gift: I left my corporate job back in December and have not worked full-time since. I admit, I have thoroughly enjoyed the gift of not having my days be super-structured and having more time at home. In the beginning, I had visions of finally this year having the […]

Thai Beef Stir Fry with Garlic and Basil

Thai Beef Stir Fry with Garlic and Basil

If you come here often, you might notice that some of my favorite foods are comfort foods, recipes that are the food equivalent of a warm blanket, cozy sweater or your softest pillows. Especially in the cooler months, this is what I crave. Spring was just beginning to show itself here when, out of nowhere, […]

Potato Gnocchi in Tomato Broth

Potato Gnocchi in Tomato Broth

People who are really into (insert obsession here) have a way of overcomplicating things or letting tradition and snobbery get into the way of good things. Is it high art or low art? Is he/she old money or new money? Is the wine a good vintage? Is the gnocchi made the way my Italian friend’s mom […]

Indian Spiced Meatballs

Indian Spiced Meatballs

One of the things that got me googly-eyed over Mr. President when we met is that he knows how to cook. One of our early dates was Thanksgiving. He cooked the entire meal from start to finish including a butterflied roasted turkey, all the fixings, and a from-scratch apple pie, all served up elegantly in his […]

Pasta with Butter Roasted Tomatoes

Pasta with Butter Roasted Tomatoes

What can be said for tomatoes in winter? Nothing good, really. When I think of winter tomatoes, I think of mealy, pink, flavorless wedges atop bland iceberg lettuce salads at crappy restaurants. They’re the hallmark of bad salads served everywhere. Almost all of the sugars in a fresh tomato are produced within the last couple […]

Mocha Banana Breakfast Smoothie

Mocha Banana Breakfast Smoothie

We’re firmly planted in mid-January, the time I suspect 75% of New Year’s resolutions have already failed. Why do we continue to fall short on our well-intentioned resolutions? There are so many reasons, but I think it’s because so many of them are far too ambitious. I gave up on making resolutions years ago, particularly […]

Warm Lentil Salad with Roasted Beets and Goat Cheese

Warm Lentil Salad with Roasted Beets and Goat Cheese

Recently when I served this warm lentil salad to Mr. President for dinner, he said, “If every salad was like this, I could totally be vegetarian!” That’s when I said, “Dude, there’s bacon in here.” So, yeah, there’s bacon, and it is fabulous! We eat a lot of salads in our house, and I’m always looking […]

Maple Semifreddo: A Sophisticated Take on Ice Cream

Maple Semifreddo: A Sophisticated Take on Ice Cream

A while back, I wrote about homemade ice cream and how it’s not just for summer anymore. Well, it’s also not just for people who have an ice cream maker either. I’m a big fan of homemade ice cream for a number of reasons: it’s easy, you can control the ingredients for the best quality […]

Stephanie Izard’s Skillet Roasted Cauliflower

Stephanie Izard’s Skillet Roasted Cauliflower

I’ve lived in the Philadelphia area for several years now, but anyone who knows me knows that Chicago is the city of my childhood and it’s the city I still love. Besides the stunning architecture, cleanliness, ease of getting around, culture and friendliness, I love the city’s food scene. Like most world-class cities, Chicago has […]

Spicy Beans and Wilted Greens Stew

Spicy Beans and Wilted Greens Stew

What do you do to celebrate your wedding anniversary when when both of you are super-busy and generally not fond of ritual and gift-giving? Well, our 6th wedding anniversary was just last weekend and to celebrate it, we took a few hours one Sunday to take a drive and leaf peep. We ended up at […]
