Roast Chicken with Fennel and Clementines
This was good. I mean REALLY good. Yes, it looks beautiful with the contrasting orange and green, but it TASTES even better. And to think, I almost didn't make this. I was on the verge of roasting a whole chicken when I remembered I'd bookmarked a recipe fr...

Shaved Fennel and Celery Salad
Eating this salad felt like all the freshness, hope and possibilities of a first Spring day. All the flavors played well together and for someone like me, who doesn't particularly like licorice or anise flavors, I didn't notice any aggressive overtones from...

Celery Root Soup
Wow! Who woulda thunk something so homely could produce something so delicious. Tonight's celery root soup was a big hit with every member of the family with enthusiastic requests to make it again. Poor celery root would not win any beauty contests. Even it...

Potato Kale Gratin
Got a beautiful bunch of Scotch kale from our CSA this week, paired it with some potatoes in my pantry, and voila a creamy, satisfying, yet light gratin. A mandoline will make slicing a cinch and if you're feeling particularly decadent, add some grated Parm...

Steel-Cut Oats Muesli
If you went a bit overboard with holiday nibbling, snacking, feasting, and gorging like I did, here's a nice, change-of-pace alternative to oatmeal to get you back on track. Instead of rolled oats, this muesli recipe uses steel cut oats for a nuttier, chewi...

Stuffed Portobello with melted Taleggio
Another satisfying vegetarian dish from Yotam Ottolenghi's  Plenty: Vibrant Vegetable Recipes from London's Ottolenghi . I didn't miss the meat at all! If you like blue cheeses you'll probably enjoy Taleggio, but for me I prefer a milder cheese. For this di...

January CSA Goodies
This month, our CSA box was filled with traditional winter vegetables and fruits, some familiar favorites, others "Huh, who are you??" Still, new is good and I was quite excited to see what could be done with the knobbly celery root having never cooked with...

Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Zucchini with Fish Sauce
I love the convenience of bagged, shaved, brussel sprouts, but this week I received whole ones from our CSA. So, to make things easier I just cut them in half and used a technique from David Chang's cookbook "Momofuku" (he of the Crack Pie fame). You start ...

Vegetable Minestrone
Here's an easy, flavorsome recipe for minestrone. Actually, it's more of a guideline as I'm sure there are as many different minestrones out there as there are families making them. Originally peasant food, minestrone was a way to use up leftovers, so it's ...

Our Favorite Hot Chocolate Mix!
The kids are clamoring for hot chocolate now that winter's here. Usually, I just heat up a pot of milk with some TJ's Sipping Chocolate. But winter time is also gift time and wouldn't it be nice to come up with a special hot chocolate mix for us and our fri...

Shaved Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage and Apple Stir-fry
This recipe came about when I wanted to make my stir-fry cabbage and apple dish. But after searching the frig and finding only half of a small head of cabbage I decided to bulk up the dish with a bag of shaved brussel sprouts. I figured they were both from ...

Introduction
I have way too many hobbies and way too little time. Between working as a teacher's aide and raising 3 kids and a hubby and a cat, I try to get in some traveling, photography, cooking, gardening, sewing, knitting, piano plunking and learning Mandarin.
