An Art Night Party with a Tasty Cauliflower Chicken Pizza Recipe

,

We recently moved into a new house, and keeping up with all of the repairs and new-to-you house maintenance has kept us from hanging up all our art. Art makes such a big difference for bare walls, even if they’re painted – a fact I can attest to now that we’ve finally got ours up! […]

Butternut Squash & Cauliflower Curry with Naan and Creamy Coconut Rice

,

This feature was brought to you by Stonefire Authentic Flatbreads. I was just saying the other day that although I’m not a vegetarian, when it comes to curries, I prefer to go veggie.

Easy and Delicious: “Plum” Wheel Lasagna Recipe

,

I LOVE LASAGNA. No, really… I love lasagna. It’s so amazing and delicious, I could eat it every day. Yet, I never seem to have the time to make it. I work 40+ hours a week, and for 9 months out of the year I’m a full time student, too. Lasagna is one of those […]

My Big Lesson Learned from America’s Worst Cooks (and a Homemade Pot Pie Recipe)

,

It may be no secret to you, but I’m a big fan of cooking. From shows like Julia Child’s “The Art of French Cooking” and PBS’s “America’s Test Kitchen” to the Fannie Farmer, Better Crocker, and Martha Stewart cookbooks and from Emerill’s “Bam!” to Rachael’s “Yum-o!” I’m a cooking fiend when it comes to delightful […]

Caramel Apple “Almost” Pie with Caramel Drizzle

,

I love the fall season. It’s not too hot to cook, the rain sweeps in and makes the air clear and crisp. I love spending time in the kitchen, creating new recipes, and planning meals, but as much as I cook, I’ve never been a really strong baker. So, if you’re like me, this recipe […]

The Perfect Recipe: Two by Two Pesto

,

I love pesto — all kinds of pesto. I mean, what’s a better than grabbing a few sprigs of basil from your garden? The mere thought of pesto sends this cook’s mind spinning with possibilities. Pesto should be able to complement whatever you’re making, but should also be able to stand on its own. That […]

Carnivale Caprese Salad

,

One of my favorite spring/summer time recipes is the basic “caprese salad.” A little mozzarella cheese, heirloom tomato, and large basil leaves, slap them together on a plate, throw on a little bit of balsamic vinegar and run to the dining room table as quickly as you can: it’s a delightful combination. Recently, while planning […]
