Turkey Pot Pie

The great thing about turkey pot pie is that it uses up so many Thanksgiving leftovers in one dish. But it’s also great if you’re not going to be making a big Thanksgiving meal and you want all the flavors without all the fuss. Serve this with some mashed sweet potatoes and a side of … Continue reading »

Lemon Tiramisu

I had a bunch of the Italian ladyfingers used for tiramisu, but no time or mascarpone to make the original. This is a pretty Americanized version, but I could just call it Lemon Pudding or Lemon Trifle and that would be fine too. No matter what you call it, it was a lovely end to … Continue reading »

Lemon Chicken with Fresh Fettuccine

I finally got around to trying out the new pasta machine a couple weeks ago when we had some great friends over. It’s a bit of a project to make fresh pasta, but it’s worth it. Plus, you can add in anything you want flavor-wise, although I generally just make plain pasta because I like … 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 »

Lemon Bars

Lemon bars are a favorite of mine during the summer. I love the tart freshness, especially when it’s hot outside. This recipe from the Flour Bakery cookbook is a pretty decadent version, with lots of eggs and butter, but it’s worth it. Fortunately, I brought these to a barbeque, so I wasn’t tempted to eat … 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 »

Olive Oil Poached Bluefish Crostini

Bluefish is a very oily, delicious fish but it sometimes is challenging to cook because it is so strongly flavored. My favorite is smoked bluefish, but until we have a smoker (and a backyard to put it in), I have to find other ways to make it. These crostini are excellent and the pickled salad … Continue reading »

Strawberry Rhubarb Fool

I’m pretty sure my favorite pie of all-time is strawberry rhubarb, but it’s hard to choose. Sometimes though, I just don’t want to go to the trouble of making dough and rolling it out. This was one of those days. And then I remembered a blackberry fool recipe I saw somewhere and thought I would … Continue reading »

Quinoa with Snap Peas and Mint

I’m a big fan of quinoa because it reminds me of pasta but it’s actually a seed so it’s healthier. You can basically treat it as you would any small pasta and it works, although my favorites are either mushroom-based or citrus-based. When I saw these beautiful snap peas at the farmers market, it seemed … Continue reading »

Lentil Meatballs with Lemon Pesto

I have a lot of meatballs on here by now: classic spaghetti and meatballs, tuna meatballs, and chicken meatballs, and I thought it was time for vegetarian meatballs. These were inspired by a couple different recipes I saw across the blogosphere and they disappeared so quickly that I will have to make them again. They’re … Continue reading »
