I’ve made spinach pesto for you before. So, this recipe may seem oddly redundant, but changing the cheese changes so much that this version has a flavor all of it’s own that is distinctly different from the original.

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 […]
I worry that I use these ingredients too often. But they are so good I can’t resist them. Kalamata olives are so good and the combination of these flavors is outstanding. That said, they are all also frequently in my fridge so when I’m looking for something to throw together at the last minute they […]

I know… I did it to you again with the homemade ravioli. But, if you made the lamb and feta ravioli you know how easy they really were to make AND that they were tastier than any ravioli you could have bought anywhere this side of Rome. Right? Well, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but we […]
Wait! Before you leave in disgust thinking that there is no way you are going to make your own ravioli let me tell you there’s a HUGE shortcut in here and you don’t have to make your own pasta and it takes only about an hour of prep to make these and that they last […]

You know how people always say how pregnant women glow? How they are beautiful and radiant? And how pregnancy is a miraculous and joyous time in your life? Yeah, well, not for me. (And, no I’m not pregnant, I’m just reminiscing.) When I was pregnant with my son I was basically a mess all of […]
This soup was a happy accident. It’s a soup, but it’s also a full meal. Hearty and filling, it’s about as healthy as a meal can possibly get (at least in my house). But I had started out trying to make something not so healthy or hearty: a cream of spinach soup that my mother-in-law […]
