Bacon & Blue Cheese Kale Salad

Bacon Blue Cheese Kale Salad

I wasn’t kidding when I said I bought a lot of kale. But I think I saved the best of the recipes for last. The best part about kale is that it actually stands up to dressings and to other flavors and textures. There are quite a few leaves and lettuces out there that might […]

Spicy Chicken & Sriracha Broccoli Slaw Sandwich

spicy chicken broccoli slaw sandwich

Sometimes you just want a giant sandwich. However, I should be clear that this is two sandwiches, stacked. I’m not *completely* crazy.

Spicy Veggie Quesadilla

Veggie Quesadilla

I will be the first to admit that this is nowhere near an authentic quesadilla. But darnit if non-authentic (and probably authentic also) quesadillas aren’t one of the best lazy comfort foods there are. Smother something spicy in cheese and sour cream? I’ll be there with my fave Chipotle Cholula hot sauce. My coworker (hi […]

Salami & Pesto Panini

Pesto Salami Panini

My new favorite place to shoot photos is our picnic table in the backyard. For a lot of reasons – the texture is great, the background images of our raised beds are always gorgeous, and most at the forefront right now, all of the photo lighting gear is in the basement because we are currently […]

Five-Ingredient Lunch: Sort-of Greek Couscous Salad

And by “Greek” I mean, with feta and kalamata olives. But still! This little grain salad shows off a favorite flavor combination and is a delicious, not-calorie-laden dinner. I actually figured out the nutritional value of this one, and it is right at 350 calories. Not bad for either a lunch or, you could add […]

Bittman’s Chickpea Tabbouleh

One of the best places to look for a good, easy lunch is a piece of writing that is absolutely indispensable, in my opinion. It is an article – well, a list – of 100 Simple Salads that Mark Bittman published with the New York Times in 2009. I have been referring to it ever […]
