There are a million and one different ways of making this style dish. I’m sure that there is some “one authentic way” but, in my usual cavalier style I have pretty much ignored that idea in favor of simply combining flavors that go well together in a familiar way. I’m not a fan of raw […]

Ok, so yesterday you got the Mississippi Mud Cake recipe and today I owe you something light and healthy in exchange for that decadence. This recipe qualifies because it’s basically one whole grain and a bunch of vegetables thrown together. It’s low in calorie but packed solid with protein, heart healthy fats, fiber, and enough […]

But, as I predicted, after a month of […]

No, but seriously, I think that she really does it right. Believe it or not, as an omnivore I’ve never […]

Barley Casserole

I wish I could have had you all over to my house to eat this casserole, because, unfortunately, I don’t think it it’s recreateable. (Is that a word?) So why, then, do you ask, am I bothering to blog about it? Because it’s more an example of a method than a recipe and if you […]

Years ago I used to make risotto a lot. Now I have two children and I can’t usually stand in front of the stove for an hour to stir it. But, back in the day my pesto risotto was known for being pretty darn good. My dear friend Cara posted a comment on the green […]
