Farro with Cherries and Walnuts

  Earlier this year I had the opportunity to participate in the filming of a TV show.  While that was fun and I’m still awaiting to see when it will air, the other positive was meeting some fellow food writers such as Rachel from Little Chef Big Appetite. I have been following her blog posts for a couple months now and she has some great recipes that you should definitely checkout. [&hellip

Jamie Oliver’s Vegetable Bolognese

This has become one of my favorite vegetarian dishes, vegan if you skip the shredded parmesan cheese. There is so much flavor from this rather simple recipe. It only takes about 40 minutes to prepare from start to table. The porcini mushrooms, red wine, fresh herbs and breadcrumbs add so much enjoyment to each bite. I discovered this recipe months after I did my review of six meal delivery services. [&hellip

Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash

I tend to think of squash in October when front porches are getting filled with pumpkins and gourds and comfort food permeates the desire to stay warm as the weather cools down from the summer heat. While that may be the case through the years, I’m starting to change the behavior each time I enjoy squash outside of the Fall season.  Why relegate this flavorful food to only one season? [&hellip

One-Pot Creamy Spinach and Lentils

Lentils are a personal favorite in my vegan and vegetarian cooking. I tend to save a lot of recipes that use them on my Pinterest Mostly Vegetarian board (you can follow me on Pinterest here.) A recent save is this lentil and spinach dish I made last week. It’s pretty easy to prepare and can be done after work, since it only takes about 30 minutes or less to prepare. [&hellip

Simple and Lighter Chicken with Biscuits (really)

I love it when I get an email in the middle of my work day saying, “Can you make this?” Stephanie occasionally will find a recipe she would like to try and knows I love a challenge. This recipe wasn’t much of a challenge, though. In fact, it ended up being a pleasantly simple recipe that only took 20 minutes to make. I used frozen biscuits from Trader Joe’s to [&hellip

Lentil and Feta Spinach Salad

  There are a few go to dishes I have when making a quick lunch or needing something for a picnic or potluck.  This dish is one of those go to options. It only take about 30 minutes to prepare and most important it tastes great.  The dijon vinaigrette adds a lot of flavor that adheres well to the lentils and cheese. It’s also a great alternative to a pasta [&hellip

German Lentil Soup

  I lived in Portland, Oregon for 12 years growing up and one of my favorite places was The Rheinlander.  Our family would often do their Sunday Brunch, which is still the best brunch I’ve ever had. The restaurant also has an amazing cheese fondue that was reason number one to go there.  With so many great things, it was easy to overlook one of their best dishes – Lentil [&hellip

Pappardelle in Red Wine Beef Ragu

Sunday night is always a special evening when it comes to cooking.  Not only is it the last evening before the work week where I can spend more time preparing and cooking a meal.  It is also a time to enjoy some twitter chat with fellow foodies on #SundaySupper chat. Tonight they were doing recipes made or paired with wines.  I had been planning on making a Korean beef dish [&hellip

Sausage, Chickpea Smoked Paprika Soup

I confess. I’ve been on a bit of a meat kick lately.  Take for instance last night when I had a perfectly good sounding vegan soup I planned to make.  Looking at the recipe on the Farmersgirl Kitchen blog, the recipe screamed for some italian crumbled sausage. If you wish to make this recipe as a vegan meal, please visit the Chickpea Smoked Paprika Soup recipe here. For the more carnivores [&hellip

Vegetable Potpie

I now have to favorite must go places while in New York City. The first is Mario Batali’s Babbos. The second must stop is Candle Cafe, a vegan restaurant that is well-known in vegan and vegetarian circles. My wife asked me what I wanted for Christmas and one of the top cookbooks was The Candle Cafe Cookbook (I already own Babbos’ cookbook.) Tonight I made my first recipe, but made [&hellip
