Cha-Cha-Cha-Changes

IMG_0246

Something is amiss in Denmark… or something like that! So many changes have happened in my life since I started this blog, and more are yet to come, I’m sure. But rather than bore with all those details (well, I will share the most exciting change – I got married! yay!), I invite you to […]

Sesame Chicken Stir-Fry

I love the flavors in Chinese food, but I don’t love biting into “chicken” and realizing it’s just a big ball of fried breading. This recipe was born out of a craving for Sesame Chicken, but not a fried or highly-fattening variety. You can throw into this stir-fry whatever vegetables you like. I used a […]

Texas Caviar: Texas-sized flavor, Texas-sized surprise

Every now and then a recipe comes along that turns out to be a complete surprise – this one fits that bill. When my book club gets together for our regular dinners and discussions, we try to match our food to a particular theme in the book. My book selection was set in Texas. I […]

For extra sweetness, use sweet yellow onions (Walla Walla, Vidalia) Ingredients • 1 slice bacon, finely diced* • 2 medium yellow onion, sliced […]

I was introduced by a friend to kale last year and can’t get enough, especially the Italian Lacinato variety (pictured). Kale is among those amazing greens and Superfoods you hear about all time. […]

Moroccan Three-Bean Soup

Prepare yourself for hearty, yummy delicious-ness! I recently hosted a Mediterranean themed dinner and served this soup, found in The New Soup Bible edited by Anne Sheasby (which I am holding hostage from a friend because it is no longer being sold and I was tagging nearly every page!). It’s chock full of protein, and […]

Roasted Acorn Squash Salad

Squash is synonymous with fall for me, and this dish – adapted from Lydia’s Family Table – has quickly become a favorite. You will love the way your house smells from the roasting squash, and the subtle, contrasting flavors will dance upon your tongue. Then, there’s the health benefits. Acorn squash – part of the […]

Mexican Chicken and Bean Stew

There are only two things that make me reluctantly accept the all-too-soon arrival of fall in Seattle (and given we had no summer this year, I’m very reluctant right now!): football (geaux Saints!) and soup, especially hearty soups. I like hearty, stick-to-your-bones soups, but without the high-fat ingredients of course! This soup is an adaptation […]
