Stovetop Fideos

At some point before we moved, I finally had the time to read through my backlog of cooking magazines. I made a short list of recipes that I actually had all of the ingredients for, and that would thus be good to make to use […]

331: Mushroom Stew with Spaetzle

331: Mushroom Stew with Spaetzle

I must preface this entry with a note that I wasn’t in the best mood when I got home to make this recipe. I’d planned to make Mushroom Stew with Spaetzle, and so that’s what I decided to do, regardless of how I felt. Now, […]

326: Eggplant Bolognese

326: Eggplant Bolognese

I save all the food Alex doesn’t like for when he’s not going to be around to eat it. Generally this includes red wine and coffee (if it’s a weekend when the additional caffeine won’t be a problem for me). This time, he suggested I […]

277: Oven-Roasted Pasta Sauce

277: Oven-Roasted Pasta Sauce

Before our first frost advisory, I picked all the green tomatoes on my tomato plant. I had 7 pounds of green tomatoes! I’ve been waiting for the majority of them to be ripe at the same time so that I could make Oven-Roasted Pasta Sauce. […]

239: Pasta with Broccoli Rabe, Bacon, and Chickpeas

239: Pasta with Broccoli Rabe, Bacon, and Chickpeas

I really wanted to try the recipe for Gemelli with Broccoli Rabe, Bacon, and Chickpeas. Although this recipe called for only 5 ingredients, it used a lot of dishes and took more time than expected to make. I followed the directions closely and didn’t try […]

191: Pasta with Pistachio Pesto and White Beans

I made Penne with Pistachio Pesto and White Beans for dinner one night. I used some whole wheat rotini that I had in the house. I cooked beans in the crockpot rather than used canned. My tomatoes were store-bought, and unfortunately not very flavorful. I […]

187: Lemony Orzo-Veggie Salad with Chicken

One Friday, I knew there wouldn’t be enough time for me and Alex to go home and eat before we had to be at a game. I decided to make Lemony Orzo-Veggie Salad with Chicken since it seemed like a good, light, take-along meal for […]

159: Vietnamese Beef Noodle Salad (Steak Bun)

159: Vietnamese Beef Noodle Salad (Steak Bun)

I was excited to see the recipe for Steak Bun in Eating Well magazine. I had this in a Vietnamese restaurant a few times, and really enjoyed it, so I was happy to have a chance to make it myself. Unfortunately, this entailed a whole […]

130: Asparagus Pesto

130: Asparagus Pesto

I never thought I’d get tired of grilled asparagus, but I’m definitely starting to. I decided to try Asparagus Pesto instead. I microwaved some asparagus to cook them, rather than boil them, because I was cooking them the day before I actually made the pesto. […]

114: Chicken and Pasta with Walnut Sauce

114: Chicken and Pasta with Walnut Sauce

On Monday I made Chicken and Pasta with a Creamy Walnut Sauce. You blend walnuts, garlic, salt and pepper, a dash of cayenne, a little broth, parsley, and lemon juice to make the sauce. Then you boil water, add pasta, add broccoli and red pepper […]
