Honey & Earl Grey Soufflé

  Home from college these past few months, I’ve had a little extra time on my hands and as a result, I got caught up in the drama of the summer. No, not Taylor and Kanye, not the Olympics –the Great British Baking Show. For those of you who didn’t watch (though really, what else […]

Spanish Omelette

This omelette or tortilla was my vegetarian staple in Spain, a land of proud omnivores. I was fortunate enough, during my visit this past summer to Barcelona, to take a cooking course, and learn first hand how to master this dish. Since returning to this side of the pond, this tortilla remains one of my […]

Sweet Potato Curry Soup

This soup was served with a huge sigh of relief. This soup is easy on the eyes (if I may say so myself) but the bigger success was my managing to correctly use the blender! Last time I attempted this feat, I found myself scrubbing orange soup off the walls, windows, vents, my dogs, etc.…it wasn’t […]

Avocado Grilled Cheese

Happy 2015! Nothing rings in the New Year like the sandwich that never goes out of style. Acting as both guest and caterer this holiday season, this dish emerged as my new favorite—lunch to warm you up on a bleak winter day or doubling as finger-food appetizers at a party. In either scenario, this panini […]

Quinoa Minestrone

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I was lucky enough to spend mine with my wonderful family in Canada—11 people, 5 dogs, and 3 inches of snow. I’ve never been much of a turkey gal, but the tried-and-true veggie sides are right up my alley. While I bide my time between leftovers and […]

Kale Pesto

I’m not going to lie; I too was subject to the kale fanaticism. I sampled my fair share of kale chips, wore my “Oh KALE yeah” t-shirt with pride, and even blended it into a smoothie or two. I sympathize with those worn out by the “super food kale” craze, but this recipe is too […]

Peanut Butter Cookies

  Did you know that November is National Peanut Butter Month!? I didn’t, but I applaud whoever proclaimed this glorious holiday. Peanut butter is definitely up there on my five-foods-on-a-deserted-island list (practical choice too with all that protein!) and I confess that in my pantry you will find two jars: the family peanut butter jar, […]

Pan-Seared Green Beans with Lemon Yogurt Sauce

Happy November! And in my case, “Happy Tech Week”. This is the final week of rehearsal for my school production of Shakespeare’s Midsummers Night’s Dream in which I will be playing the role of Hermia. Amidst the crush of costume fittings and last minute staging, I need to eat! Especially considering the physicality of this role; […]

Rosemary White Bean Hummus

The flurry of last-minute Staples runs, permission slips, and (this year for me) college applications can mean only one thing: back-to-school season is here! Also making a prominent appearance as summer gives way to fall, is hummus. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one to turn down hummus any other time of the year, but […]
