Mexican Soup

Mexican Soup

I’ve been making some version of this Mexican Soup for almost 15 years now. It’s easy, inexpensive, healthy, and satisfying – and the perfect thing to make from leftovers, too! I call this “Mexican Soup,” but it’s rather inauthentic. It’s loosely based on tortilla soup,…

Microwave Peanut Brittle

Microwave Peanut Brittle

I first found this recipe for Microwave Peanut Brittle 4 years ago, and quite honestly, it’s fantastic. Alex and I are not peanut brittle lovers, but we sneak bites of this every day until I package it up. I’ve made batches and batches of it…

Steak Salad with Lime, Sesame, and Cashews

Steak Salad with Lime, Sesame, and Cashews

This Steak Salad with Lime, Sesame Oil, and Cashews is my absolute favorite salad. The lime juice is zippy; the sesame oil, toasty and delicious; the cashews, crunchy and buttery. Jalapenos add a slight but not overwhelming amount of heat. And grilled steak – if…

Roasted Chickpeas and Sweet Potatoes with Tahini (Sesame) Sauce

Roasted Chickpeas and Sweet Potatoes with Tahini (Sesame) Sauce

This delicious recipe for roasted chickpeas and sweet potatoes is one of my favorite vegetarian recipes. It’s bright and hearty. Since everything cooks in the oven, it’s perfect for warming your house in the winter. We can all use more go-to vegetarian dinners, can’t we?…

Fennel-Crusted Pork Loin with Potatoes and Pears

Fennel-Crusted Pork Loin with Potatoes and Pears

I first made Fennel-Crusted Pork with Potatoes and Pears 7 years ago, as #362 of my 365 recipes that I made that year. Alex had gotten our friends to give me recipes for a birthday several years prior (best present ever!).

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites

Some people adore the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, all the time. I’m not one of them. I only like it sometimes, when I’m in the right mood for it. But once I’m in the mood for chocolate peanut butter, like these chocolate peanut…

Lentil Soup with Lemon

Lentil Soup with Lemon

I want to like lentils. They’re inexpensive, healthy, and quicker to cook than any beans around because you don’t have to soak them. I don’t use them often in part because I don’t know what to put them in. I’ve only made a few lentil…

Chickpeas with Spinach

Chickpeas with Spinach

This recipe, Chickpeas with Spinach, has been one of my favorite quick meals to make recently. Originally an appetizer, I decided it looked substantial enough for a meal. I felt the same way about the version of it I made several years ago, too. That…

Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroons

Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroons

This month I made Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroons with some egg whites I’d previously frozen. I’d made them once before – the day before I gave birth, in fact. They were the perfect snack for being in the hospital – rich, two-bite indulgences that were…

Gluten-Free Pita Bread

Gluten-Free Pita Bread

For Bread Week 24, I decided to try a recipe for gluten-free pita bread from Fork and Beans. It would be the perfect thing to go with hummus I planned to make for cool lunches for this week, when the weather promised to return full-force…
