Coconut Vegetable Curry

I gotta give a big shout out to Neil, whose tweet inspired me to try again with a recipe that I completely failed with the first time around. Neil tweeted about an amazing vegetable and chickpea curry he had made with coconut milk and it just so happened to be exactly what I was craving, so I knew I was going to have to try it again. I ...

Southwest Mac n Cheese

And by "easy" I mean "you don't have to make a bechamel sauce." The other day I was lucky enough to have one of my recipes included in one of Buzzfeed's Quick Dinners posts. I wanted to be excited, but I was too distracted by the first photo in the list... it was this totally amazingly creamy looking macaroni and cheese. I was ... [Read More]

Chopped Kale Salad

I always think of salads as a non-recipe, but in the vein of "Here's what I'm eating this week - it's cheap and delicious!" I'm going to post it anyway. Perhaps it will inspire you or maybe you'll just learn some new techniques for chopping kale. I was craving vegetables in a super-duper way this week, so a salad was the only logical ... [Read More]

I've had the ingredients for this dish in my refrigerator for about a week... I had intended to make it last week, but then Mardi Gras happened and there was food and drink everywhere. No need to cook anything, that's for sure. These tasty little bowls turned out even better than I had expected. They come together in about 30 minutes ... [Read More]

If you don't live in Louisiana, you might not know that we've got a big carnival going on right now. Parades, marching bands, crazy costumes, and (of course) beads are daily sightings for the two weeks preceding Mardi Gras. It's all gotten me in the mood for some classic New Orleans food—Red Beans and Rice! I made a classic version of ... [Read More]

Quick Fix Salad Bar Pizza

I was craving pizza this morning, HARD. So, I thought it was a good time to share my favorite quick fix for pizza cravings. This is what I make when I'm dying for pizza, but don't want to buy or make a whole pizza (because you know I'll just end up eating the whole thing). These quick little tortilla pizzas give me the satisfaction of ... [Read More]

One Pot Beef & Mushroom Stroganoff

Beef & Mushroom Stroganoff

Guess what time it is? Comfort-food-o'clock! This is yet another "better than the box" meal. It's like hamburger helper stroganoff, but homemade. And guess what? It's still super fast, easy, and requires only one pot. I used half ground beef and half mushrooms just for fun (the beef was actually less expensive per pound than the ...

You know what tomorrow is, right? The day you're supposed to give something sweet and special to your sweetheart (or secret crush!). Well, before you run to the drugstore to pick up a sad box of chocolates and a mini-teddy bear, think about making these homemade treats. A little bit of effort goes a long way on Valentines Day. Plus, your ... [Read More]
