Chickpea Curry

2014-02-18_ChickpeaCurry-600px

Winter can be a tough time to cook… It’s particularly tough if you are someone who likes to cook with a lot of fresh and local produce.  I rely pretty heavily on our CSA and the local farmer’s market from April to December… But, once January rolls around, I’m on my own. I like comfort…

White Bean Burgers with Sundried Tomato and Herbs

I love grilling in the summer.  But, I find that I often fall into a burger rut.  We offer to have friends over to cook out, and I end up making the same beef burgers over and over and over again. Don’t get me wrong… The burgers are delicious, but we really try not to…

Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup

I feel kind of silly writing about soup when the temperatures are going to be in the 80s for a few days this week. Just a few days ago, however, it felt like winter. And, if the last few months are any indication of the weather patterns we will have this spring, I’m guessing that there…

Frittatas have always been a favorite for quick lunches and dinners at my house.  I love them for a variety of reasons.  The obvious reason is that they are fast and easy.  I can whip up a frittata in about 20 minutes and even wash the dishes while it is cooking.  All I have to…

I’ve heard a lot of people say they think it’s easiest to eat well in the summer… After all, there is a wide variety of fresh produce readily available and we are all supposed to just whip up a salad for lunch and dinner every day. I don’t know about you, but that’s not generally…

Easy Pasta with Vegetables

I’ve been meaning to share this quick and easy pasta recipe with you for a few weeks. I debated about whether or not it was too simple to share. And, it is a very simple recipe.  But, it’s recently become a favorite at my house, and after making it for dinner the fourth week in…

California Veggie Wraps

I’m sure you all know the lovely Aimee from Simple Bites and Under the High Chair… And, if you don’t, you really should!  Today, a few of us are hosting a virtual baby shower to help her celebrate the her new baby girl on the way. One of the things I enjoy about baby showers is…

Friday Favorites – Pinterest Edition (Episode 124)

FridayFavorites_new.jpg

I often feel like I get in a rut with my Friday Favorites… It has nothing to do with the blogs that I read (they are always full of fun and fresh ideas!) and everything to do with me. The thing is, I find myself going back to the same blogs for the same types…

Friday Favorites – Episode 122

There’s a pretty big football game this weekend. Regardless of your position on the game, you probably are planning some fun snacks to much on while you watch the game (or just the commercials).  So, for this week’s Friday Favorites, I thought I’d share the game day appropriate recipes that caught my eye this week……

Sweet Potato and Collard Greens Frittata with Smoked Cheddar… On Bluebonnets & Brownies

Nope, this isn’t grilled cheese! I know I promised you a grilled cheese recipe this week using the lovely sourdough bread that I shared on Monday. But, there’s been a slight change in plans. Instead, today I’m guest posting over at Bluebonnets & Brownies, and I wouldn’t want to distract you with grilled cheese and…
