STUFFING WITH WALNUTS, CRANBERRIES, AND SAGE

The holiday season is upon us! That’s kind of an awkward way to start this post, but I just didn’t know how, or where, to begin. First of all, I can’t believe we’re less than a week away from December. December! I can hardly believe it, but I’m thrilled the holidays are coming up, and I’m looking forward to next week when I’ll start making my home a little more festive. For now though, I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving weekend, as we’ve been invited to dinner at a friend’s house. It’s a potluck aff ... Read More

PASTA WITH CHICKPEAS AND CHERRY TOMATOES

I love pasta. And not because I’m part Italian (although I suspect that does have a little bit to do with it), but because it’s so simple—and quick—to make. You can take the humblest of ingredients and transform them into a meal that’s both filling and delicious, and most importantly: much better for you than ordering takeout because you’re too tired to cook (or don’t have the time to). This particular pasta has made a regular appearance on our dinner table these past few weeks. I originally made it out of ... Read More

I wanted to do something a little bit different today for Packed Lunch Mondays. Instead of giving you another recipe, let’s talk about what’s in your desk drawer. And I don’t mean office supplies, but rather the little foodie bits and pieces that help make desk meals that little bit more special. If you work in an office environment like I used to, then you know that office lunches are often no fun. Having a well-stocked desk drawer is great for helping you eat well throughout the day, particularly if you have long of ... Read More

WATCHING + READING | 5 FOODIE THINGS

It’s Sunday i.e. Fun Day, and I’m hoping you’re relaxing at home, cooking up an amazing brunch, and generally taking it easy. Or you might be working. Either way, grab a cup of coffee and click on for some links I’ve been digging this week. 1. HOW WE CAN EAT OUR LANDSCAPES An inspiring talk by Pam Warhurst, who helped transform her town into a giant edible garden. No-nonsense and totally gutsy, this is what growing food should be like. 2. COMMON MISTAKES WHEN ROASTING VEGETABLES Bon Appétit tells you how to d ... Read More

PACKED LUNCH MONDAYS: PUY LENTIL SALAD WITH RED CHARD AND SUNDRIED TOMATOES

The weather has started to turn—we’ve now got decidedly cooler afternoons and breezy evenings. Stores are stocked up on Halloween décor and candy (surprisingly late this year), and I went to the first farmer’s market of the season. I am really, totally, absolutely in Fall mode. While Fall here doesn’t require sweaters or come with changing foliage, I’ve been adjusting my diet to include warming soups and stews (and lots of cake, but shhhhh we’ll talk about that another day). This super-simple one-pot dish is fl ... Read More
