    As with many grain based salads, this is merely a template for mixing and matching different kinds of quinoa (see Note) and vegetables, depending on your mood, the season, what you have in the fridge. I bought red quinoa on impulse, and then was too intimidated to use it for a while, but now realize... MORE

    Recipe: Simple Roasted Asparagus with Shallots and Parmesan

    Roasted asparagus makes an appearance on our table a couple of time a week, this time of year.  It’s as easy a cooking method as there is, and roasting any vegetable deepens its flavor.  The high heat really makes the difference. You could totally skip the shallots and Parm for a very simple spring side... MORE

    Recipe: Potato, Leek and Dill Frittata with Crème Fraiche

    There are few foods more perfect than the potato.  And few foods more versatile.  Except for the egg — the same can be said about eggs.  A simple potato torta or frittata is but one of the lovely ways potatoes can have both a supporting and a starring role in the same dish.  If that... MORE

  • Pasta with Goat Cheese and Spinach

    Recipe: Creamy Goat Cheese and Spinach Linguine

    A handful ingredients on a crappy cold night when I could not make it out to the store turned into one of the most spectacular pastas.  I love how goat cheese mixed with some hot liquid — be it broth, pasta cooking water, or otherwise — almost instantly turns into a creamy sauce. In Dinner... MORE

    I’m in a big pesto place right now.  I guess some people might feel like pesto is a kind of yesterday food, but it’s just so amazing.  I do love it on pasta, but I also love to stir a spoonful into rice, maybe this Scallion Tomato Rice, or soup, or dot some on hot... MORE
