Dinner

Edamame Soup

Edamame Soup

This soup is the perfect use for the leftover créme fraîche from the mussels in cider. I’m a big fan of edamame, but it is typically one of those things I only eat if it comes gratis with the sushi we’ve ordered (as much as I enjoy edamame, I don’t think I could ever convince Dustin…

Mussels in Cider

Mussels in Cider

It’s been an incredibly long time since we’ve posted something. There just don’t seem to be enough hours in the day for work/school, creating and cooking new and interesting meals, writing about them, and sleeping. Trader Joe’s frozen meals and easy repeat meals have become a staple on our weekly menu. But we did make…

Sausage and Pepper Tortellini Soup

Sausage and Pepper Tortellini Soup

I bought a family-sized package of cheese tortellini when we made this spinach and artichoke tortellini soup and only used half off it. While the spinach and artichoke version was light and refreshing, this meaty, tomato and pepper version was much heartier and fall/winter appropriate. Originally I envisioned large chunks of sausage or chorizo, but…

Homemade Pasta + Tomato Sauce with Parmesan Rind

Homemade Pasta + Tomato Sauce with Parmesan Rind

Boy was this a delicious meal. We stopped by our local cheese shop, and on a whim bought some fresh burrata. When we tried to decide what we would actually eat the burrata with, all we could settle on was some kind of awesome pasta. I set my sights on making a damn good tomato sauce…

Pear, Walnut & Blue Cheese Puff Pastry Pizza

Pear, Walnut & Blue Cheese Puff Pastry Pizza

Puff pastry pizzas make a fabulous dinner or party appetizer, and it’s very low maintenance to make. The puff pastry makes such a flaky and buttery crust. Although you could do a variety of toppings (I think a caprese version with cherry tomatoes and basil would be perfect in the summer), this particular variety is perfect…

Spinach and Artichoke Tortellini Soup

Spinach and Artichoke Tortellini Soup

We’ve been eating crazy amounts of spinach lately. For the last few weeks, most mornings for breakfast, we’ve been drinking green smoothies for breakfast. Dustin was skeptical about the potential deliciousness of putting spinach in a smoothie, but has since perfected a version with bananas, honey, raspberries, mangoes, fresh orange juice, and coconut milk (another…

Buffalo Chicken Noodle Soup

Buffalo Chicken Noodle Soup

Let’s face it. It will never be really be soup weather where I live, so I have to get my fill of warm, comforting soups when I’m wearing T-shirts and pretending it’s cold. I’ve previously made a more gourmet version of buffalo chicken soup with blue cheese biscuits and all, but I wanted a more everyday…

Jalapeño Popper Burgers

Jalapeño Popper Burgers

Although we’ve made jalapeño chicken popper sandwiches that might be a little more true to the spirit of a jalapeño popper, but these burgers are lightly spicy from jalapeños with lots of creamy cheesy goodness− all of the best parts of a jalapeño popper. Perfect for grilling season when it is too hot to turn…

Pumpkin Sauce Enchiladas

Pumpkin Sauce Enchiladas

You’d never know there was pumpkin in these enchiladas except for the slightly orange color of the sauce. The pumpkin puree replaces the traditional tomato base and just tastes of Tex-Mex goodness when mixed with jalapeños, garlic, and all of the works. The sauce is made in the blender and then you just pour it…

Fancy BLTs

Fancy BLTs

This post should really be called PATJs, which is short for Pancetta, Argulua, and Tomato Jam sandwiches, but I don’t think you’d be able to understand what I was talking about if that was the title. But all of the ingredients in this sandwich are fancied up version of the classic BLT sandwich served on…
