Lunch

Delicata Squash Tart

Frequently when I make ravioli or another stuffed pasta, I have leftover filling. This is a great way to use it up, but it’s also an incredibly easy appetizer for parties or when you need a snack in a hurry. I have made this before with mushrooms and there are endless variations. It’s also another … Continue reading »

Roasted Tomato Soup & Grilled Cheese

We survived the hurricane without any damage beyond getting a little stir-crazy, so I have to feel pretty grateful. We didn’t lose power or have any terrible flooding, but all we could do for days was watch the damage on TV. Of course, one of my first plans of action was to get to work … Continue reading »

Veggie Burgers with Sriracha Mayo

If you’ve noticed that my posts have slowed down, it’s because we’re planning a move and I’ve been sidetracked on that project… but the upside is that I’m getting creative with recipes to use up pantry and freezer ingredients. This week, I made veggie burgers to use up lentils and breadcrumbs in the pantry. Of … Continue reading »

Spaghetti Frittata

This is a pretty traditional way to use up leftover pasta, and it’s scalable to however much you have leftover. It’s best when you can make a nice thin layer and get the whole thing really crispy, although this time I tried it with an extra egg to make it more frittata-like (I prefer it … Continue reading »

Summery Grilled Corn Linguine

We’ve been having corn all summer, but this was the first time I decided to put some into a pasta dish. We took some leftover grilled corn and cut it off the cob, combined it with sweet end-of-summer cherry tomatoes and anchovies, and it was a perfect weekend lunch. The sweet corn and tomatoes combined … Continue reading »

My Favorite Breakfast: Avocado Toast

I found a recipe for avocado toast in a Bon Appetit cleanse a while ago, and it quickly became my favorite snack, breakfast, or lunch. I adjusted the recipe a little to balance the tartness of the lemon with some honey. Make sure to allow your avocados to ripen, they should be just a little … Continue reading »

Watermelon Feta Salad

This summer we seem to be having an endless string of 90+ days, which makes it a challenge to find light and delicious dishes that don’t make me sleepy. My ideal meal in weather like this is a light salad or fruit/vegetable along with a few bites of something really tasty like a grilled cheese. … Continue reading »

Capellini with Tomato and Basil

Capellini (angel hair) is not used very often because it quickly becomes a gluey mess. The trick is to pull it directly out of the pot into this olive oil sauce and toss. I only use it in situations like this with a fresh, uncooked sauce because you don’t want to be messing around with … Continue reading »

Sicilian Pantry Pasta

Sometimes I realize the fridge is empty but the store is so far away….those are the times I look to the pantry to figure out what I can piece together. I usually have a can of Italian tuna, which is a great way to get some protein into what would normally just be starch-based. Add … Continue reading »

Crepes Fines Sucrees

This is another recipe that I thought needed some new pictures. Crepes aren’t much more effort than pancakes, but I like them so much more. You can fill them with whatever you like; my favorite is nutella and strawberries. I thought we needed something special for breakfast over the weekend, and crepes immediately came to … Continue reading »
