Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew

Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew

This recipe isn’t particularly seasonal. Sweet potatoes are a fall vegetable, right? But then again, with the unseasonably cool weather New Jersey keeps having, a warming Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew sounds pretty hot right now. This thick and creamy pureed stew is warm and […]

Spicy Pork with Asparagus

Spicy Pork with Asparagus

Making and enjoying this recipe for Spicy Pork with Asparagus is directly related to our spring cleaning efforts. Recently Alex and I have gone through much of our stuff to try to downsize. One day, eventually, we will buy a house, and we had might […]

Slow Cooker Southwestern Bean and Barley Soup

This Slow Cooker Southwestern Bean and Barley Soup is a delicious and easy vegetarian meal. It’s been too long since I made it, and I’m so glad I tried it again! I originally wrote about this recipe in 2010 – it was #337 of my […]

Japanese Fried Chicken (Tori no Kara-age)

This Japanese fried chicken is near and dear to my heart. The recipe, called tori no kara-age, was the first dish my host mom ever made for me when I studied abroad – we ate it the night I moved in with my homestay family. […]

One of my goals for 2018 is to make fun weekend breakfasts. I’ve done this most weekends so far. One breakfasty thing I’ve missed has been scones, which I used to make all the time. So I knew that I had to make these Sprinkle […]

Hershey’s Best Brownies

Hershey’s Best Brownies

I think everyone needs a good brownie recipe. Certainly, everyone needs a good, fail-safe dessert recipe. One that you know will turn out every time you make it, no matter what. One that takes no time or effort at all to make. Preferably, one that […]

Pecan Fudge Pie

Pecan Fudge Pie

I’ve finally rediscovered a recipe for a Pecan Fudge Pie after, oh, about a decade. It was years ago (maybe 2007?) when I was in Houston and went to a place (a diner? I can’t remember the name) that was supposed to have amazing pies. […]
