grilled local carrots with pesto and cheese

Guest Recipe: Grilled Carrots with Carrot-Top Pesto

I have the distinct pleasure of living in (and eating with) a community of exceptionally good cooks. We have THE BEST POTLUCKS.  And if someone is sick, bereaved, or has a new baby, they’ll be blessed with weeks of the finest take-out and ready-to-freeze meals you’ll never see at a restaurant. So it follows that these […]

Risotto with Sausage and Swiss Chard

I love the process of making a good, creamy risotto: the care and attention required, the aromas, the particular wooden spoon I use, the lessons learned from friends, trial, and error.

Good news: you don’t have to peel carrots! By all means, peel if you must, but I generally avoid it whenever possible. Fresh carrots like these don’t have the bitter […]

Autumn Harvest Quinoa Power Bowl

I love a good, hearty bowl of autumnal goodness. The brussel sprouts we received this week and the butternut squash sitting on my counter from last week inspired today’s easy weeknight recipe: a vegetarian combo of cool-season veggies and quinoa, with dried cherries and pumpkin seeds for brightness and crunch. This meal cooks up within 35 […]

stir fry

Crockpot-to-Skillet Korean Pork Stir-Fry

Looking for an easy, flavorful weeknight dinner? We love stir-fry in our house: it empties the fridge, cooks up fast, and delivers a lot of nutrition in one pot.   Stir-fries are also great for experimentation and using up what we have. I’ve got a general rule to balance the flavor and nutrition, but anything […]
