Stewed Chicken and Chickpeas

Stewed Chicken and Chickpeas

Since I don’t like eggs, cheese, or tofu, vegetarian food in my house typically involves beans in some form or fashion. I haven’t been very creative with them. I can only have lentil soup or chili or chickpeas and sweet potatoes so often, even though I love […]

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 […]

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? […]

Slow Cooker Baked Beans

Slow Cooker Baked Beans

I’ve tried a few different recipes for baked beans in the past before coming across this recipe for Slow Cooker Baked Beans. The other recipes I tried were all disappointing – mainly, they had no flavor. Another gripe that I had – so many traditional recipes […]

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 […]

One of the soups that I’ve made a few times recently(ish) is the Carrot Soup with Tahini and Chickpeas from Smitten Kitchen. It’s a healthy and delicious soup, and is pretty quick and easy to make. The soup itself is lightly spiced. Do not skip […]

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

Cooking is much easier with a one-year old than it was with a baby. It got better when she was able to sit upright and play with toys or watch me from her high chair. Now that she can toddle into and out of the […]

Lentil Soup with Sausage and Kale

Lentil Soup with Sausage and Kale

Within the past few weeks, I made Lentil Soup with Sausage and Kale. The soup sounded hearty and warming during our recent cold snap when winter told St. Louis that spring was farther away than we hoped. I only made a few changes to the […]

Curried Lentil-Stuffed Squash

Curried Lentil-Stuffed Squash

Now that the weather has convinced me that it’s fall, I’ve begun making seasonally-appropriate recipes. I’m not generally one for dishes that require presentation. I don’t put effort into how my food looks, as long as it looks tasty, and I’m more likely to make […]
