I really, really miss pizza. Over the last few years, I have made some good and a lot of really awful pizza crusts trying to replicate the crispy chew of pizza dough (straight into the trash with those!). I still haven’t been able to replicate quite the right “chew” for pizza crust (yet!), but this […]
This was the most popular dish I made over the first days of Pesach (Passover). Other than draining the spinach, which can be a bit time consuming, it’s really simple to throw together and into the oven. This recipe easily doubles if you are having a very large crowd, and it also freezes well.
After being dairy-free for such a long time (10 years!), it’s hard for me to plan meals that have dairy in them. It’s just not the first place my brain goes! However, I’m rediscovering so many yummy dairy dishes that I have not been able to eat in ages, and enjoying every bite.
It’s funny how something from another culture can become a comfort food, but Asian flavors like mirin (Japanese rice wine) and miso have become part of my everyday cooking repertoire. After a long day, sometimes all I want is a big bowl of noodles with steamed veggies and a sesame-soy dressing.
My mom used to make shepherd’s pie all the time when we were growing up. She made it with just meat and potatoes (some of us were picky eaters growing up…), but I’ve jazzed this version up with veggies, spices, and a parsnip-potato topping.
I’ve been making a lot of pad thai recently (yes, I’ll share the recipe soon, still perfecting it), and the sauce is definitely the best part of pad thai (although AK would argue the mung beans are…I digress). Classic pad thai sauce is a combination of tamarind, palm sugar, and fish sauce (or soy sauce). […]
I don’t know why, but there is something so warm and comforting about stuffed peppers. A little while back when a friend of mine lost her father, I made these stuffed peppers, hoping to comfort her as well.
Sorry I’ve been MIA, but I’m getting married next month so things have been a little crazy. I probably won’t have much time to post between now and then, but bear with me, I’ll be back in full force in September 🙂 A few weeks ago I went to a Jewish leadership conference, where, among […]
This post is part of the 30 Days to Easy Gluten-Free Living event. Check out all the other great posts here. There is a misconception that maintaining a gluten-free diet is really expensive. If you buy all of the fancy baked goods and gluten-free bread that costs $8.00 per loaf, yeah–living gluten-free is going to […]
**This post is part of a month-long series as I participate in the Salad as a Meal Challenge. This isn’t a recipe from Salad as a Meal, but I had a whole bunch of spinach left over from my egg crepe, and I wanted to find an innovative way to eat it. And I did–by crusting […]
