Chickpea Fritter Sandwich with Hummus

Chickpea Fritter Sandwich with Hummus

Post sponsored by Flatout Flatbread. See below for more details. With toddler eating patterns taking full force in our house, I like hand-held items more often than not. This fritter sandwich was slightly born out of a combination that was requested by the two year-old: chickpea fritters and hummus. My child loves hummus and would […]

Gluten-Free Cornmeal Waffles with Sorghum Strawberries

Gluten-Free Cornmeal Waffles with Sorghum Strawberries

I love reading cookbooks because it gives an eye into the kitchen of someone else. You can tell ingredients or combinations a person favors. It can be telling about their past, what they’ve experienced, and the things they love. Sorghum syrup is one of those items you might see in my kitchen. It all started […]

Lemon Vinaigrette | Component Cooking

Lemon Vinaigrette | Component Cooking

If there’s one thing I tell people to start making at home right away, it’s dressing. Homemade salad dressing is as easy as whisking together olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. From that base, the possibilities of dressing are endless. While most people say you want a dressing that is 1 part acidity (lemon juice […]

Spiced Sweet Potato Skewers with Cilantro Yogurt Sauce

Post sponsored by America’s Dairy Farm Families and Importers. See below for more details. Even though we grill out all year, I tend to increase my grilling during the spring months. I like to soak up as much time as I can outside, which is a perfect way to celebrate Earth Day. This year, I’m […]

Spinach Asparagus Soup with Lemon Sunflower Cream

Spinach Asparagus Soup with Lemon Sunflower Cream

I’m not one to often turn asparagus into soup. I think the crisp texture of asparagus makes the flavor better. This soup has changed my mind. I keep it simple with the base but the spinach adds a bump in nutrients (and green hue!) To make this soup easier, you could swap heavy cream for […]

Cashew Cream | Component Cooking

Cashew Cream | Component Cooking

I was a bit slow to use cashew cream. I’ve never been shy about using heavy cream but over the years, my diet has tended a bit more towards vegan. This cream is a really useful recipe whether you’re trying to eat vegan or not. The cream sauce can be thick and used as a […]

Cilantro Scramble with Spiced Black Beans

Cilantro Scramble with Spiced Black Beans

I have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest and Instagram. It’s a wonderful space to find ideas and be inspired but at the same time, it can feel overwhelming. It can feel easy to think that all those beautiful photos of food are out of reach. This cilantro scramble is two-fold. For starters, it uses my […]

Asparagus Frittata with Herbs and Mozzarella

Asparagus Frittata with Herbs and Mozzarella

There is hardly a better catch-all for vegetables than a frittata. I could easily riff on a frittata recipe every day (it was the frittata recipe that led me to creating all the base recipes for the cookbook). Raw, roasted, leftovers- most types of vegetables are welcome. This asparagus frittata uses a roasted asparagus mixture […]

Pea Whole Wheat Couscous Risotto

Pea Whole Wheat Couscous Risotto

Post sponsored by La Crema. See below for more details. I’ve always had a soft spot in my cooking for pearl couscous. Is it the healthiest choice? Not by a long shot. Is it delicious? Yes, yes it is. This small pasta cooks quick, soaks up every flavor, and has a lovely texture. I can’t […]

Homemade Red Harissa | Component Cooking

Homemade Red Harissa | Component Cooking

If there’s one thing that rules my component cooking, it’s sauce and sauce-like recipes. Making a sauce or two a week can bring all your meals together. I can’t remember how I started making harissa but it’s become a favorite component of mine. The smoky, spicy flavor works well with many different recipe types and […]
