It took me exactly one day in Germany to discover a major love of spätzle! Spätzle are soft, pillowy egg noodles that are almost like dumplings, and if you haven’t tried them yet you need to fix that void in your food-life right away.
I’m still waiting for that super-crisp fall weather! Mornings are teasing me with a little chill, but our Colorado sun is still beating down hard during the day.
If you’re grilling out this weekend for Labor Day, you’ve got to add this tomato pomegranate salad to your cookout menu! It’s gloriously colorful and absolutely bursting with freshness, perfect alongside grilled meats.
We’re at the lake this week for Kirk’s family reunion and the food situation has been goooood. Three kinds of sliders, baked potato bar, the very best browned butter chocolate chip cookies – this family eats in style and I absolutely love it.
This creamy potato salad was a huge hit at our Fourth party! Sometimes it’s these last-minute thrown-together dishes that come out the best.
This summer heat has me daydreaming about really good salads, which I can pretty confidently say is a first. Happily this wild rice and edamame salad checks off all of our summer dream ingredients: tomatoes, mozzarella, edamame, and lick-the-spoon-delicious avocado-lemon-basil dressing!
Any eggplant lovers out there? I’m a big fan of eggplant in Asian and Italian dishes, but rarely make the effort to cook it at home.
We’ve been loading spaghetti squash up with everything for easy low-carb dinners lately, so I had to share one of my favorites! Diced jalapeños for flavor and heat, crispy salty bacon bits, and (most importantly) three types of cheese make this creamy and so satisfying.
Pasta salad with no mayo, no mustard, and less pasta than meats & cheeses – this is not your usual picnic salad! Taking all the fillings of a good N’awlins muffuletta sandwich and tossing them with pasta is a guaranteed favorite that’s always on request in our house.
Friends! This is it: your one-skillet, family-pleasing, nutritious dinner plan.
