magic bullet cornbread stuffing recipe skillet

If it’s cold and you’ve been eating a lot of chili (or a lot of chili-like bean dishes), you’ve probably made a lot of cornbread to eat with that chili.

Of course, you can console yourself by eating cornbread with maple syrup for breakfast but, while there’s certainly nothing wrong with that, you might be hankering for something new after a few […]

scrambled egg salad with pancetta recipe

Scrambled. Egg. Salad. I know it’s weird. But, hey, 2016 has been a weird year, so just roll with it. I’ve been on a quest lately for new ways to make salad a satisfying dinner. And while farro salad is my great love, you can’t actually eat farro every night. Trust me. I’ve tried. Plus, sometimes, the Whole Foods bulk bin section is out of farro so you’ll need another plan. That’s what led me to giving scrambled egg salad […]
