I love finding recipes from around the world that use familiar ingredients and offer new flavor combinations. If I can use colorful ingredients from my garden, all the better!
Cauliflower & Carrots with Whole Spices
A beautiful aromatic dry curry with bright, fresh colors and flavors that go well with a wide variety of dishes.
This dish is creamy, flavorful, and colorful – a great fall comfort food. It’s easy to adapt with different vegetables and vary the spice level to match your taste. Plus it’s cheap!
Frittata with Sun-Dried Tomatoes
With garden chives in the spring or summer, this is one of our favorite go-to quick dinner options, though we have been known to serve it for breakfast too.
Rainbow Peep Popcorn Balls
Want to use up leftover Easter candy? Want to melt and mash and then eat something light and crunchy? Here you go!
Puerto Rican Rice
We’re serving a big Puerto Rican feast again this weekend and working on meal planning. I came here to grab our standard Arroz con Gandules recipe and realized I somehow had never posted it. Most people I know who’ve tried this dish absolutely love it. I’ve had so many people ask for the recipe, some more…
Salted S’mores Popcorn
Here’s a sweet & salty version of a summer classic that’s easy to mix up in minutes. With bittersweet chocolate, crispy crunchy cereal bits and fluffy sweet marshmallows scattered in, t’s a great light snack anytime.
Quick & Easy Apple Pie Bars
The best part of this is the crispy, crunchy top. Way better than a traditional pie crust that has to be made separately. Or maybe it’s the way the layer hides gooey caramelized “cake” beneath studded with lots of juicy apple chunks. There certainly isn’t a bottom crust. Who needs it? I think the magazine…
Baked Sweet Potato “Fries”
So delicious, so easy, so colorful – even healthy too! The only problem is having enough – and it becomes slightly more labor intensive if you do it in very large quantities. I recommend recruiting/enslaving some scullions. Or volunteering, if you feel very nice. We’ve made these for everything from summer birthday picnics to Thanksgiving….
Quick & Easy Fish Broth
A long time ago, I really intended to approach this whole international cooking thing very practically. I was going to go cuisine by cuisine, showing what ingredients you should keep in your pantry and combine in different ways to make lots of different dishes. I haven’t exactly followed up on that, despite taking lots of…
Festive Christmas Salads
These two salads are delicious anytime of the year, but since they’re red and green they’re especially great for the holidays when you want something healthy and festive to balance all the sweets. I love how simple and flavorful both of these salads are – they both have a mixture of great textures, too. Both…
This garbanzo polenta is an easy, healthy dish you can put together ahead of time and broil quickly to have hot to serve with dinner. Corn, of course, was not a native grain in Italy, so this is technically a more authentic recipe anyway. I find the flavor of using chickpea flour more savory and satisfying than corn polenta, though both are delicious.
