The Tomato Sandwich

The Tomato Sandwich

Sunday’s post about childhood food memories really left me craving a tomato sandwich.  Like the kind my neighbor Betty used to make.  It really is so simple yet so amazing.  Only three humble ingredients, well plus salt and pepper.  If you add anything more, well I don’t consider that to be a true tomato sandwich.  … Continue reading

Fruit Pizza and Food Childhood Memories

Fruit Pizza and Food Childhood Memories

This week has been rough.  For everyone.  Of course the tragedies in both Boston and Texas are on our country’s mind and weigh heavy on all of our hearts.  But a week ago, a couple days before bombings or explosions or wanted fugitives became our nation’s top priority, a dear friend of mine lost her … Continue reading

Chipotle Spiced Butternut Squash Oven Fries

Chipotle Spiced Butternut Squash Oven Fries

Today is November 5th right?  You’d never know it if you stepped outside my house right now.  It’s 80 degrees.  And not really the day to crank up my oven to 425 degrees.  Oops!  But I had a plethora of butternut squash on my counter that was just calling out to be made into fries.  … Continue reading

Asian Ramen Salad

Asian Ramen Salad

My mom has made a salad similar to this one for years.  It has always been one of my favorites and also one of those salads I could make a meal out of and and be left feeling completely satisfied after devouring bowl after bowl.  Her trick is to use the seasoning packet in the … Continue reading

Garlic Tofu Fries

Garlic Tofu Fries

Tofu is an everyday snack around these parts.  My girls like it any which way…but my 18 month old daughter Penelope loves it cold straight from the fridge cut up into little bite size pieces.  I fill her little snack bowl and she walks away happy only to return in a minute to get more. … Continue reading

Green Rice

Green Rice

Kale.  I love it.  If I somehow got my kids to love it, I would be the happiest mom in the world.  So, I made a batch of Green Rice last night (inspired by Gwyneth Paltrow’s Fried Rice with Kale and Scallions.)  I wouldn’t exactly call it fried rice since I did change up her … Continue reading

Avocado Pesto

Avocado Pesto

I have been wanting to make Chef Chloe’s Avocado Pesto ever since we moved into this house with an almost unending supply of avocados (due to the avocado tree in our backyard.) Weeks will go by without any avocados and then bam!!! – right now I have three huge bowls of avocados in my kitchen. … Continue reading

Honey Glazed Radishes

Honey Glazed Radishes

I’m feeling so French right now! I was inspired by Laura Calder’s show on the Cooking Channel called French Food at Home. She made sugar glazed radishes with butter which looked so tasty I thought I’d give it a go. Mine have olive oil instead of butter and honey in lieu of sugar. So good! … Continue reading

Turnip Oven Fries

Turnip Oven Fries

I’m all for food swaps but let’s be real. No oven fry will ever be as tasty as a McDonald’s french fry. However I am always on the hunt for new ways to make boring vegetables into something more exciting. If you have a crinkle cutter (I found mine on Amazon for $8) your fries … Continue reading
