Autumn Pizza

As the temperatures turn cooler, my hankering for hot, crusty, bready things grows exponentially. This weeknight pizza includes apples, goat cheese and an usual ingredient I don’t often condone.

Yoga Stew

The addition of briny green olives at the very end gives a little twang to the dish, and the whole thing is served up on soft, pillowy rice. Even if your version of doing yoga is simply sitting on a sticky mat and shoveling a bowlful of stew into your face, then so be it.

The Poor Pot

The ingredients are inexpensive and a big pot lasts for several meals, and it’s hard to get any heartier than sausage and potatoes. My secret ingredient? A bottle of beer for depth of flavor.

Plum Yummy

Smeared on a piece of good bread with butter, the slightly wild flavor gives you the feeling of being in the Swiss Family Robinson tree house, eating exotic fruits and lounging in a hammock.

Beets & Sweets

I have embraced the earthy flavor of beets, and I just know that something so vibrantly colored has got to be doing amazing things to my insides, besides making them look like I’m dyeing Easter eggs in my mouth.

Are Bee Are

This is the perfect dish to have on a cool September night, when the temperature outside is teasing you with the idea that fall is just around the corner. It’s warming, it’s hearty and it’s perfect for leftovers the next night.

Stuffed Peaches

Flipping through cookbooks for ideas, all I found was peach crumble this, peach cobbler that, peach pie blahdeeblah. Been there, done that! Give me something new, something fresh, something… stuffed?

Colorado Calzone

Instead of piles of cheese and mystery meat, I filled our calzone with sautéed veggies, summer pesto and a few liberal handfuls of Swiss cheese. My calzone was close to food-porn status, if I may toot my own horn.
