I found this recipe in my most recent issue of Everyday Cooking by Martha Stewart.    I was flipping through the magazine the other day looking for dinner inspiration, knowing that I had some tired broccoli sitting in the fridge.  I felt it was my lucky day when I came across this recipe.   I […]

Curried Lentil Stew with Potatoes

Share

 

Despite what the food looks like (I actually think it looks a little like dog food – is that terrible to say?) I found it to be incredibly delicious and I was sad when I finished the last bowl.   I could have eaten this for lunch for a week without getting sick of it.   I […]

Mexican Lasagna

Share

I really like this recipe, and I’ve made it twice in the last week. It’s easy to throw together – it’s actually the easiest lasagna I’ve ever made – and it’s incredibly good. It’s a perfect weeknight meal for us as we strive to continue to remove meat from our diet.

Today I watched the movie […]

Chipotle Quinoa with Corn and Black Beans

Share

Ok, I think I’ve posted enough sweet recipes lately. Time for a change.

I’m on a quinoa kick these days.   I found that Trader Joe’s sells a great bag of tri-color quinoa and I’ve found all kinds of things to do with it.  This recipe is my current favorite.   My husband likes it so much that […]

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili

This chili is delicious, and it’s a perfect weeknight meal because it doesn’t take too long to prepare.   I made it for dinner on Sunday after we had been out all day, and it didn’t take long to make at all.   That said, if you have some extra time when you make this, I […]

Cannellini Beans with Lemon, Roasted Red Peppers, and Bacon

Share

What a delicious side dish!   A big bowl of these beans could have been my whole dinner the other night, they were that good and that satisfying. They’re also full of flavor.  It didn’t hurt that the dish is full of bacon.  Isn’t everything better with bacon?

I used canned cannellini beans because they’re so […]

Toasted Corn, Cherry Tomato, and Edamame Salad

Share

I made this salad a couple of weeks ago while on Shelter Island. At the time, I was cooking so many delicious new recipes that I found it difficult to post them all in a timely manner. Unfortunately summer corn is on its way out (at least in the Northeast) […]

Chickpea, Carrot and Parsley Salad in Homemade Pita Bread

Share

Ok, this is always what happens when I make something that’s really good, and I want to post it on the blog before we devour it…   the photo’s not so great.  I made this the other night – both the salad and the pita bread, and I thought both were really delicious, especially when you […]

Italian Lentil Salad

Share

This is not a pretty salad, but it’s definitely a delicious and a healthy salad.   It’s so filling that it can even be served as a vegetarian entree.  I loved the combination of sweet and savory in one dish.   I enjoyed the different textures too. I didn’t have […]

Weeknight White Chicken Chili

Share

This is a perfect weeknight meal. The whole thing comes together in about 30 minutes and with the cayenne pepper it has a nice kick to it. When it was cooking, I found the consistency to be more like soup than chili, so I added some corn starch mixed with water […]
