Five-Ingredient Lunch: Caprese Salad

Caprese salads are beautiful on their own and great for adding to a fancy dinner, but because there is so little prep involved I think they’re totally underrated as a lunch item. Plus, there’s no cooking involved and almost no work. If the ingredients are fresh, this salad will stand on its own as a […]

Six-Ingredient Lunch: Pesto Pasta Salad

Lunch does not have to be $7 out of your pocket every day… or 99 cents out of your pocket for a processed frozen meal that’s probably not to great for you (though I’ve definitely consumed a few of these in my day). Plus, I find that I really look forward to my lunch when […]

We learned to make (veggie) sushi!

There was definitely a lot of learning here, but I think we ended up with some pretty decent sushi! As you can see, they are of varying degrees of professionalism. Dave, our friend Pete, and I all made several rolls (this photo is the first half of the sushi we made), and we all got […]

Strawberry rhubarb crisp, straight from our backyard. And gluten free!

This past weekend we spent a lot of time with friends, and I am totally and completely exhausted. But we also cooked a lot, and had a great time doing it. On Saturday we actually harvested some rhubarb from our backyard, and learned a TON about it. Behold: Pretty, but definitely different than what you […]
