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 […]

Spiced Roasted Carrot and Quinoa Salad

Spiced Roasted Carrot and Quinoa Salad

Here we sit on this fence between winter and spring, and I’m craving anything that resembles garden-fresh food. Thank goodness for the humble carrot and its magical ability to keep in my fridge for weeks at a time and bagged salad greens from the grocery – I can combine them with pantry items and create something […]

Make-Ahead Breakfast: Savory Chickpea Pancakes

Make-Ahead Breakfast: Savory Chickpea Pancakes

Recently, I’ve started working on my sweet tooth – by that I mean I’m trying to tame it. Although I’ll never cut out entire food groups or say “never again” to sugar, white flour, or alcohol (GASP!), I do have enough self-awareness to know when a habit isn’t serving me well. And, I’ve come to […]

One-Pan Pasta with Chickpeas

One-Pan Pasta with Chickpeas

You know how when you really like to do something, maybe it’s even something you love, you can’t imagine that other people don’t enjoy that thing at all? That’s how I feel about cooking. For me, at least when I’m not in a huge hurry, slowing down to methodically chop vegetables, focus on a recipe, […]

Winter Cabbage Salad with Kale and Apples

Winter Cabbage Salad with Kale and Apples

As winter drags on and you unearth yet another hunk of frozen meat from your freezer to braise “low and slow” and serve with mashed potatoes or roasted root vegetables, consider this: maybe you need something light and refreshing too. Sure you can make just another salad, but I like to experiment using foods that […]

Enviable Homemade Hot Chocolate

Enviable Homemade Hot Chocolate

While all of you are grumbling about the cold weather, growing piles of snow in parking lots, and short days, I’ll be sitting right over here wearing my sweatpants and a contented smile. I cherish every single moment of winter, and would certainly not want to live somewhere that doesn’t get one. All too soon, […]
