Then, shape them into balls, roll them in shredded coconut, and chill them in the refrigerator. That’s it! The dates are already very sweet, so you don’t need to add […]

cold-endive-salad-feat

What is endive? Is it an alien food only available in the French alps? Is it the cousin of radicchio? There’s Google for those questions, but I can tell you that endive tastes sweet, almost nutty, and yet a little bitter. This recipe, adapted from Gabrielle Hamilton of Prune via Food52, plays up another feature of endive: its incredible crispness. Soaking endive in crushed ice results in an icy, crunchy delight – totally satisfying and unusual as either an entrée or […]

It’s cherry season! This Memorial Day, I was so excited to see boxes of bright red cherries stacked up in the fruit section of my grocery store. I brought home a box and made this cherry pie smoothie, which includes fresh cherries, graham cracker crust, vanilla yogurt and milk.

best chili 8 copy

There’s a time and a place for 30-minute beef chili: a weeknight when you just want to throw something in a pot and have it be warming and pretty delicious in a matter of minutes. And then there’s a time and a place for those more lazy afternoons watching football when you can also make the World’s Best Vegetarian Chili and bake homemade cornbread to boot. That’s not really my designation; this is a recipe adapted from Cook’s Illustrated called the “Best […]

Green-Smoothie-1 FEAT

Smoothies are always satisfying and (usually) extremely healthy. What makes the unhealthy ones so unhealthy? They’re often fruit-based and loaded with unnatural sugars and preservatives. Where do vegetables fall into the equation? Should we be scared to mix them in with their sweeter cousins? I say no! This green smoothie features a blend of kale, spinach, cucumbers and celery, combined with some of our favorite fruits to create a healthy, vegetable and nutrient-rich glass of satisfying goodness. Need we say more? […]

buddha-bowl

Buddha bowls are my new favorite way to get in all of my vegetables for the day. If you haven’t heard of them yet, I’m sure you’ve seen them around the web, since they’re kind of a thing right now. But what’s with the name? They actually called “Buddha” bowls because they look like, well, a Buddha belly with all of those vegetables piled on top! In terms of what vegetables you can add to them, you can go crazy and add […]

shrimp-paprika copy

A long time ago, in a galaxy… well, okay, it was this galaxy. I bookmarked a recipe for Mark Bittman’s shrimp – also known as “The Simplest and Best Shrimp Dish” or “Shrimp My Way.” It sounded pretty good, but, for whatever reason, I never made it. Well, stop the presses: I made it recently and it is pretty good. I don’t know if it’s the best shrimp dish ever—no Bubba Gump here, I’ve yet to taste every shrimp dish in the […]
