I had my monthly book club last night. Except I didn’t read the book. In my defense, I started the first few pages and at another mom’s club event, one of the moms cued me in that the book wasn’t worth reading. If only I’d known that before spending $9.99 on the book. Ha! But,…
A cheesy, hearty, vegetarian recipe for any time of year that the thermometer dips. Leftovers are great sliced and added to a lunchbox with a wee pot of ketchup. The weather is not playing ball. It is the last gasp of April and not only have I switched the heat back on, I’ve added a scarf, too. …
Now, can we have one more idea for cooking asparagus, since I seem to be unable to pass it up when I see it in the market these days! Waaaaay back in 2007 I made Roasted Radishes with Soy Sauce and Toasted Sesame Seed, which ended up inspiring this Roasted Asparagus with Soy-Sesame Glaze. And then for 10 years the recipe hung around in the archives with a photo that was so gruesome I actually deleted it when I took these new ones.
This post was created in partnership with Shipt. All opinions are our own. The other day we received this comment on our Instagram: “Impressed by your ability to maintain quality, healthy cooking with a newborn. We have a 4-week old and it’s still lots of freezer meals and super simple dishes! Would love a post on how you’re making it work!” @robinfitzergerald Our answer to Robin: Grocery delivery. In this day and age, you can order everything from toilet paper to peanut butter to dog treats online. And our secret to keeping it all together is that we do. We love supporting local businesses; we spend time at the farmer’s markets and local stores. But for weeknight meals and boring errands like toilet paper, it’s online ordering. There is seriously nothing better than getting groceries at my front door (except for the incessant dog barking), and I marvel at it every single time. Those grocery bags at my door are the physical representation of getting hours of my day back. Instead of getting my 2-month old in his carseat, driving to the store, maneuvering a cart wandering the aisles, standing in line, paying the cashier, maneuvering the cart to my […]
A few times, I’ve shared a revised version of an old recipe, and you guys have really loved it. Crock-Pot mushroom stroganoff, very veggie lentil bake, stew and dumplings – they’ve all appeared on this site more than once, and the second version is always a million times more popular than the original. It seems […]
Now that we have Green Curry Paste, let’s make stuff – like dal!
Dal (also known as daal or dhal) is a classic Indian dish of curried, spiced lentils. You can enjoy it as is, with naan or pita, or over rice (rice being my favorite).
This dish is one I reach for when I’m craving some healthy comfort food. Bonus? It’s crazy easy to make. Let’s curry!
This recipe requires just 1 pot and comes together in about 40 minutes!
Socca is a lovely meal for anytime of year, but for whatever reason I’m always most compelled to make it in the springtime. It’s something about the weather getting warmer: I’m ready to break out of grain bowls and soups for lunch, more eager for flatbreads and toasts and salads. This simple green goddess spring…
I took Piper grocery shopping today. It was Shea’s nap time and since I was going to be gone most of the evening at my hockey game, I wanted to give Mr. Prevention some “free time”. And by “free time” I really mean time to train Harlie (our new bulldog), but…shhhh. Don’t let him know…
I have a thing for curry (exhibits A, B, C, D, and E). That is the understatement of the year.
I am totally obsessed with curry! The flavor, the aroma, the versatility – I’m hooked.
Since I figured out a DIY curry powder, I figured it was due time I made my own curry paste. Yes, a real jedi-level move. Be impressed.
Friends, I have to say I don’t know what took me so long to try this recipe, because homemade is sooooo much better than store-bought.
