My New Favorite Breakfast

My New Favorite Breakfast

My favorite breakfast has a new look. Many of the original elements remain — eggs, onions, spiciness, and salty pork products never get old — but I’ve moved on to something a little different. This is a breeze to make ahead and reheat and is easily doubled, tripled, etc. with minimal additional effort. Even better, simple … Continue reading

Escarole with White Beans & Sausage

For a few weeks, I was grilling every head of bitter green that came my way. But, I needed some novelty. And, the weather was turning from hot to cold, making me crave something a little heartier at night. Thus, a soup(ish) kind of dish, filled with hearty greens, beans, and delicious chunks of porky … Continue reading

Breakfast Casserole, Revisited

Breakfast Casserole, Revisited

I started getting into breakfast casseroles as the ideal “grab and go breakfast” towards the end of last summer. After a few months of experimentation, I’ve found a few tricks that lead to (near) casserole perfection: Use a 13×9 pan. For awhile, I struggled with casseroles in 8×8 pans that took forever to bake in … Continue reading

Soup’s On

Soup’s On

With the weather slowly taking on a wintry chill (with odd, balmy weekends, intermixed, providing much appreciated respite from the frosty temps that soon return), our dinners have moved away from the cold, cool crunch of salads and towards warmer, heartier fare. Soups filled with meat, root vegetables, and leafy greens are the ultimate one … Continue reading

Sunday Soup: Turkey Sausage, Potato, & Spinach

A few years ago I fell in love with Smitten Kitchen’s sweet potato and sausage soup. The soft sweet potatoes, slight spice of the chewy chorizo, and slippery spinach swimming in brothy goodness make it the perfect comfort food for those days when you just can’t seem to shake off the chill from outside. More … Continue reading

Breakfast Casserole

Breakfast Casserole

Although few things beat a fried egg with a runny, orange-yellow yolk and crispy, fatty bacon fresh from the pan, sometimes it is really nice to have a grab’n’go breakfast on hand. It frees up time and ensures you have breakfast. While hard-boiled eggs are easy and effective, I enjoy something with a little more … Continue reading

Oh la la: Zucchini Noodles & Poached Eggs

Oh la la: Zucchini Noodles & Poached Eggs

Sometimes, a girl’s just gotta pat herself on the back. The other day was total kitchen zen. Successfully poaching an egg left me feeling like a super kitchen ninja. Using that egg to top off a tasty dish, enjoyed on the back porch (in pre-scorching weather), was just well, the…egg on top? (doesn’t quite have … Continue reading

DIY: Sausage

DIY: Sausage

Tasty meat + flavorful spices. How can this go wrong? I like to keep a package or two of pork sausage (sage, chorizo, or andouille) in the fridge or freezer to have something flavorful to fry up with veggies and eggs for breakfast, or pull together a quick evening stir fry or sausage soup. For … Continue reading
