We are doing a lot of cleaning out the fridge this weekend. There was a point last week where there was literally no shelf space left, and many things were precariously double-stacked that ordinarily would not have been. This was partly because it was almost Thanksgiving, and partially because we just had a lot of […]

Chicken Broccoli Cheddar Rice Bowl

Standbys: we have them for a very good reason. I have this teal dress from Target that is my work standby outfit. It is a cute but simple dress and I have the perfect accessories to go with it. Any coworkers reading this are probably laughing to themselves right now because they know EXACTLY what […]

Chunky Chicken Rice Soup with Lemongrass

Chunky Chicken Rice Soup with Lemongrass

This has been a good winter for soup recipes for me – although since it’s supposed to be 75 and sunny here on Saturday, it is definitely not winter anymore! I’ll probably still eat soup for a while, though. Just not this Saturday. Saturday you can find me in my backyard with a cold beer […]

Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup with Pesto

chicken pesto soup

I am really proud of this soup – I’ve always been a big fan of chicken and rice. When I was little, Campbell’s chicken and rice was always my favorite, and my mom always added extra rice to it, which in my opinion made it even better. I don’t buy Campbell’s very often these days, […]

Lentil, Tomato and Rice Soup – Vegan and Gluten Free

Vegan, Gluten Free Lentil Soup

I made this soup last weekend, looking for a way to use some pantry stuff and to make sure we were prepared for the week ahead. I was expecting it to be good. I was not expecting it to be so delicious that I want to make it again next week for Soup Club at […]

Cajunish Sausage and Rice

I hesitate to call this anything specific, because it’s not really dirty rice. But we’ve got spicy sausage, bell peppers and Penzey’s Cajun spice mix, so I think I’ve earned calling it “Cajunish.” More importantly, simple, it’s spicy and it’s a tasty weeknight meal (or weekend meal, really- it’s fast enough for a weeknight, so […]

Moujadra – a lovely, vegan Middle-Eastern treat

Good morning! At this moment I am in glorious Kansas, enjoying time with friends and family but also missing my home and husband in Portland. It’s tough to have things be so far away, but I’m making the most of it. And I’m extremely proud of my little brother, whose graduation we celebrated this weekend. […]

Weekend Refreshing Beverage: Homemade Horchata

Going to a party this weekend? Is it outdoors by chance? Then this is what I suggest bringing, because that is exactly what we did last weekend: make some horchata at home. Horchata is a cool, refreshing Mexican beverage made of milk (or rice milk), cinnamon, rice and sugar. Not whole rice grains — calm […]

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 […]
