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 […]

Ok, yeah, so it’s spinach. But it’s still the farthest thing from healthy you can imagine for spinach. Except, for maybe the cream of spinach soup I posted back in January. You’ll know when you taste this dip that it would be possible to eat the whole thing yourself if you could just get everyone […]
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 […]
I know what you are thinking… “Um, you posted this, like, 2 months ago, right?” and then you will start thinking, “Oh, no. She’s ALREADY repeating? I’m done with this blog.” But WAIT! Here’s the thing… this one is different, it has vegetables.
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 […]
Don’t get me wrong, I love traditional lasagna, but when I have a batch of spinach pesto in my fridge (which I do this week- maybe you do too!) this lasagna just begs to be made instead.
I love fresh basil, which is what traditional pesto sauce is made from. It’s bright, fragrant, and delicious. But, it’s so totally out of season in the winter and it’s hard for me to rationalize shelling out $20 on it at the grocery store for basil when there are bags of spinach sitting there on […]
In the wake of my spinach quiche and spinach soups (there have one and two of them so far) my friend Meredith requested a basic spinach recipe. So I pulled this recipe out from a long hibernation. I think I’ve gotten so excited about taking advantage of spinach’s versatility that I’ve forgotten that it’s darn […]
Ok, remember a last week when I posted this spinach soup? I mentioned that it was a happy accident as I tried to make a delectable cream of spinach soup less caloric and fatty? Well, as delicious as that soup is (and it is) it does not replace the original inspiration. And no matter how […]
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 […]
