Feta and Basil Stuffed Sombreroni Pasta

Feta and Basil Stuffed Sombreroni Pasta

We bought this ridiculously awesome and ridiculously expensive pasta impulsively at Monsieur Marcel (just about the easiest grocery store I can think of to go broke at) just because it made us smile. Between the sombrero shape and the colored stripes, these guys just looked like a fun, party of a meal. Initially we didn’t…

Three Chile Chowder

Three Chile Chowder

We absolutely loved this spicy and creamy soup with plenty of heat thanks to poblanos, jalapeños, and hatch chiles. To kill that intense spiciness, you have soft chunks of potatoes, half and half, and beautiful acid from the lime. Even though this was a much loved warming meal during our (cool) winter, we had a…

Pear, Pecan & Pomegranate Seed Salad

Pear, Pecan & Pomegranate Seed Salad

We are starting on our New Year’s resolutions early this year— we’ve picked up running again (side note— it was over 70 degrees and almost too hot to run yesterday) and are working on healthier eating (with liberal amounts of desserts still worked in). The first step towards better eating was this triple-P salad for…

Sage Pesto Pasta

Sage Pesto Pasta

I guess it’s sort of becoming a thing that when Dustin goes away for his business trips to San Antonio I subsist on some sort of pasta and pesto sauce. Given the success of the mint pea and pumpkin seed pestos, I’m always thinking of new and unique pesto flavors to try. This time around…

Homemade Pumpkin Gnocchi with Brown Butter Gorgonzola Sauce

Homemade Pumpkin Gnocchi with Brown Butter Gorgonzola Sauce

This recipe is a testament to frugality with all of the ingredients because it comes from things we typically have in the pantry or what we had lingering around, leftover from other dishes. Gorgonzola from the buffalo chicken macaroni and cheese and an open half-used can of pumpkin in the fridge from the biscotti (although…

Fall Kale Salad

Fall Kale Salad

We had an amazing kale salad at The Hart and the Hunter, and when cooked properly, I firmly believe there is no better base to a salad than kale (plus cheesy kale chips are delicious). If not cooked properly kale can be a nasty wet mess, but tossed with olive oil and baked until crispy,…

Butternut Squash Spaghetti

Butternut Squash Spaghetti

Not to be confused with spaghetti squash, this is legit homemade spaghetti with a thick and creamy butternut squash sauce coating each strand. We were browsing a specialty food mart when I saw a butternut squash pasta sauce sitting on the shelf. I was tempted to buy it, but why buy something like that (at…

Pumpkin Seed Pesto & Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Pumpkin Seed Pesto & Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Last time Dustin was away, I made mint pea pesto with gnocchi. I thought it was absolutely delicious, but let me tell you, it pales in comparison to the pumpkin seed pesto with sweet potato gnocchi this time around. I based the pesto off of this recipe from Whole Foods, but definitely made some changes.…

Mint Pea Pesto Gnocchi

Mint Pea Pesto Gnocchi

Dustin has previously shown you what he eats as a bachelor when I’m out of town. I figured it was my turn to show you what I’ve been eating while he was out of town (which will be happening significantly more with his new job). Contrary to what it might seem on here, I do…

Gorgonzola Fondue

Gorgonzola Fondue

This is the fabulous dinner we had that I mentioned in yesterday’s post. With fondue in the title, I’m guessing you can imagine why we wanted to eat a healthy, non-cheese filled lunch. When we drove down from Seattle to Los Angeles, we stopped for a day of wine tasting in northern California and picked…
