For the last few weeks, Mack and I have been cooking less on weeknights, and cooking more on weekends. We’ve been making one or two big dinners on Sunday and then eating them throughout the week. This has freed up time in the evenings to exercise, chores, or just relax.
One of our favorites […]
Here in San Francisco, we get a lot of cold, rainy days. So consequently, I end up eating a lot of soup. Sometime last month I started searching for a healthy- but hearty and easy soup to make for dinner one night after work. I found this recipe from Martha Stewart for a chicken sausage, […]
I found this recipe for chicken and cheese enchiladas a few years ago in a Rachael Ray Magazine. These enchiladas are awesome. They are cheesy, smoky, rich and delicious. I’m still not sure how Rachael Ray is able to make everything in 25 minutes… I have never been able to complete this dish in less […]
Chana masala is an Indian dish made with garbanzo beans, tomatoes, onion, and spices. This is the first Indian dish I’ve ever made, and it is also one of the easiest and most delicious dishes ever.
I have loved Indian food for a while, but I have been hesitant to cook it because frankly, I […]
Lecho is a Hungarian dish made with smoked sausage, tomatoes, and peppers. My Dad would make this for us when I was growing up at home. He was born in Hungary, and when he was just a little boy, he and his family fled the country as refugees during the Hungarian revolution in 1956. They were lucky to […]
I would just like to start off by saying that I lOVE lasagna. Unfortunately, it usually is a heavy, greasy mush of meats, oily sauce, fatty cheese, and slimy noodles. Not to say that I wouldn’t eat a greasy slice of lasagna on the right occasion, but these days I would much rather have a delicious piece […]
Well it’s no secret that chicken noodle soup is good for you. It’s a basic comfort food that has been enjoyed by millions of people in many countries for hundreds of years because it’s cheap, hearty, heatlhy, and delicious.
Sometimes called “Jewish penicillin”, chicken noodle soup is even a traditional remedy for […]
The idea for the won-taco was born out of a contingency plan that we didn’t end up needing. Mack and I bought a bunch of wontons wrappers when we were out shopping for the raviolis as a back-up plan just in case the pasta didn’t turn out well. (Oh by the way, you can substitute […]
The first time I had butternut squash ravioli was a few years ago at a restaurant in SF called Kuleto’s. It was my friend Jana’s birthday and she invited me and a few of our friends to dinner. Jana worked at Kuleto’s at the time and so she knew the menu inside and out. She […]
This is hands down one of my favorite dinners. I stole the idea for this dish after my friend, Patty made something similar at a dinner party at her house a few years ago. The recipe is simple, inexpensive, and healthy. It’s also vegetarian, so it’s a good one to make when you’re entertaining no-meat […]
