Simplest Roasted Cauliflower

I had a doozy of a day today. Starting with the coffee I forgot to drink until it was barely tepid. (In case you're wondering, cold coffee just doesn't cut it when you're running on five hours of sleep.) Moving right along to a morning knee deep in spreadsheets and other unpleasantries.

This is an all-out soup because it calls for fine ingredients, and takes just a little more effort than your ordinary vegetable soup. But it's so very worth it. Not that I know very much about Italy, but I promise your kitchen will smell like Italy if you follow this recipe. 
Here goes: I think you can learn everything about people's personalities by observing them in the kitchen. Do they wash dishes as they go or accumulate an awful mess of pots, pans, knives, fingertips, and cutting boards by the time they are through with a recipe? Might tell you something about ...

Buttered Dilly Green Beans. A simple recipe that tastes like more than the sum of its parts. http://www.healthyeatingforordinarypeople.com/2014/09/buttered-dilly-green-beans.html
The thing that makes it a little more embarrassing is that said-someone rarely actually cooks from said-cookbooks. She reads them like other people read fiction. She takes them to the beach and to the pool. Seriously. She draws inspiration and ideas from them. But she rarely actually cooks a ...

Ground Cherry Plum Crisp
Have you tried ground cherries? Check out this wonderful crisp featuring this exotic fruit, combined with plums and apples. 
This time of year is filled with bittersweet. The bitterness of saying goodbye to the warm lazy summer days and happy times at the pool. The sweetness of welcoming in a new school year, with sharp new pencils and shiny new shoes. The bitterness of putting away the relaxed summer wardrobe ...

Lemony Summer Squash Bean Soup
I know there's never a good time to get sick. But it's especially un-just when it happens on the weekend. Timed just perfectly with my days off, my only days to chill and catch some time for myself.  Don't get me wrong. My family came through for me 100%. T...
I know there's never a good time to get sick. But it's especially un-just when it happens on the weekend. Timed just perfectly with my days off, my only days to chill and catch some time for myself. Don't get me wrong. My family came through for me 100%. The kids pitched in with babysitting and ...

Colorful tomatoes make this salad super pretty. But you have my permission to use regular tomatoes if that's all you have on hand. It'll taste just as good. 
I live a double life. Most days, when I'm in the office, I eat a protein bar for lunch. Yes, it's kind of nasty and tasteless. Yes, it's an embarrassment to the people who look up to me as a good home cook. But it works. It gives me the calories and nutrients I need to get through my day, ...

OK, so you know you take food a wee bit too seriously when your eleven-year-old son begs you to take a family trip to Whole Foods before school starts because "this is probably the last chance I'll get for a long time." Or when you are more likely to have fresh summer fruit in your home than you ...

This lovely fall salad features my favorite produce from this time of year: kale, apples and winter squash. 
I mean, who finds toenails in random places? So I won't. Write about toenails, I mean. I'll just jump right to this very appealing not at all nauseating kale salad. Without further ado. Kale Salad with Apples, Hazelnuts and Acorn Squash This recipe is adapted slightly from Food52. 1 acorn squash ...

What a wonderful way to welcome in the fall!
 
Fall gnocchi!

Tilapia with Tomato Peach Salsa
Looking for an easy fish recipe that makes use of summer produce? Try this!
A Very Knowledgable Person in my household, on the other hand, knows better. His qualifications include a LOT of tortillas and store bought salsa. And so apparently he is much better qualified. And said Very Knowledgable Person doesn't think this dish qualifies as salsa. Salad, maybe.

Stuffed Peppers
Here's a great vegan dish to try while peppers are in season. It's elegant enough for a fancy occasion, but really easy to put together.
What a whirlwind of week. What a lot of adjustments. My oldest daughters (twins) are starting high school. My baby is starting 'big girl school.' And my husband is starting his first job as a Physician Assistant after five years of school. I'm just doing the same-old, same-old.

These eggplants are just the prettiest things. Yes, they take a bit of attention to detail. But they are well worth the effort. 
I am generally a fairly devoted mother. I drive my kids to their various extra-curricular and social activities (and I don't usually complain). I get their school supplies and uniforms in order at least a couple of days before school starts. For the most part I make sure they are happy, ...
