    Harvest Moon Salad

    This is a total copycat recipe of the Harvest Moon Salad from McMenamin’s Pub in Portland, Oregon. I happened upon this salad while attending Book Club this fall. Whenever I dine out, I usually try to get a meal that I cannot make at home. Salads are hardly ever included on this list. Yet, when I saw the ingredients list of goat cheese, candied pecans, a maple dressing & butternut squash; I had to try it! Well, wow! This Harvest Moon Salad is delicious I spent all week thinking of it & much like the New Seasons Coastal Kale Salad, I couldn’t get it out of my head until I…

    How to Roast Butternut Squash

    How to Roast Butternut Squash I often find myself googling, How to Roast Butternut Squash because I can never remember the exact roasting time! Below are my favorite tips & tricks for getting your butternut squash to cook perfectly! Butternut squash is something I did not grow up eating. If I remember correctly, I first cooked with it about ten years ago. I remember I didn’t know how to cut it, peel it or cook it. Basically, it was a totally foreign object to me. Since then, I’ve cooked with it numerous times. I love butternut squash in soup, salads & even just plain. It has a really rich &…

    Homemade Caesar Salad Dressing

    This Homemade Caesar Salad Dressing is a gem. One night, we made it on a whim & it’s turned into a staple in our home. Yes, I fully understand that a legit Caesar Salad contains a raw egg, garlic, anchovies & parmesan cheese. Well, we are busy people & busy people run out of eggs! This salad starts easy enough & you really only need 4 ingredients. Now, some of you may not love the mayo. Let it be known, mayo is eggs & oil. Yes, it’s a huge shortcut, but it works for us. Try it just once. I bet you will love it. We always use Hellmann’s aka…

    What is the Difference Between a Sweet Potato and a Yam?

    What’s for Dinner? Mark and I are hosting our first Thanksgiving this year, and the argument between the New England meal versus the Southern meal has begun.  You mean we have to stuff the turkey???  What about cornbread dressing?!  We will have jellied cranberry AND homemade cranberry sauce.  The biggest decision we need to make now is between our starches:  Mark’s family always has mashed potatoes and butternut squash, we always have sweet potatoes.  No matter what the outcome, we will have sweet potatoes.  Now I need to know, what is the difference between a sweet potato and a yam? Grocery Store Confusion When I show up to the grocery…

    Roasted Beet & Goat Cheese Salad

    Roasted Beet & Goat Cheese Salad I have been ordering beet salads A LOT lately.  This earthy vegetable is one of my favorites and it has been showing up on menus everywhere.  They were cooking up some beets on Top Chef the other night.  I just kept thinking, “I could make this at home, right?”  Totally.  And you can too. Beets Beets are having a moment, and rightfully so. Not only are they crazy good for you, they are beautiful!  I have been eating pickled beets for a long time, but I only recently have been tackling them at home.  I was always intimidated – they are going to stain my counters!…

    Blue Apron’s Chickpea & Cauliflower Tagine with Couscous & Pita Chips

    Blue Apron’s Chickpea & Cauliflower Tagine with Couscous & Pita Chips A few weeks ago, my husband tells me he is no longer eating meat. Evidently, watching a lot of Netflix documentaries about factory farms will do that to a person. It’s not a huge deal to me as I’m not a big meat lover anyway. Not only is he not eating meat, but he’s limiting all animal products; like 99% Vegan. That’s cool with me, but, we have kids! One of our favorite weeknight recipes is Lemon Chicken, or Spaghetti & Meatballs. The first week, I wasn’t stressing. Sure, I can cook some Vegetarian-ish meals, Come Week Two, I’m like,…

    New Seasons Coastal Kale Salad Recipe

    New Seasons Coastal Kale Salad Recipe I am a sucker for store samples & I make no apologies for this. Often I find my next food addiction from store samples. I fell hard in love with this Coastal Kale Salad from New Seasons Market a few months ago. At first, I thought it was a fluke. The truth is that while I enjoy a good salad, I don’t dream about them or crave them. Sour Patch Kids? Yes. Kale? No. So, two weeks & over $40 in Coastal Kale Salad later & I knew I had to come up with a copycat recipe. This one is a game changer, my…

    Spring Green Mason Jar Salad

    Spring Green Mason Jar Salad Ahhhh spring time. I am Really Into the new fresh veggies that come out in the spring. It’s so nice to see everything blooming and it is really getting warm and beautiful here in Northern California.  It was time to try another salad and I knew I wanted to use fresh asparagus and peas, some of my favorite things in spring.  Then I thought, why not make the whole salad green!  While I found some beautiful asparagus at the store, they didn’t have any fresh peas!  I know I will be making this salad again after a trip to a nicer store.  The salad has…
