How to Roast Acorn Squash in the Oven

How to Roast Acorn Squash in the Oven

Let’s talk fall for a minute. Acorn squash. On the outside, it may be dark green, orange, or beige. The ones with dark green skin seem to be more common at our local grocery stores, although Trader Joe’s had some pretty orange ones last fall. I find acorn squash easier to work with than the other amber-fleshed […]

The Easiest Way to Cook Salmon

The Easiest Way to Cook Salmon

If you’re not cooking salmon this way yet, you totally should. In the past, my go-to method was to pan-sear salmon with a hot fire on the stovetop. Which was always kind of a hassle because the hot oil would pop all over the place and the whole house would end up smelling like fish. Then I found […]

Recipe for Pistachio-Crusted Cod

Recipe for Pistachio-Crusted Cod

I’m not a meal planner. I tried once, but couldn’t get beyond the days of the week. (See below.) Total fail. Which is why I have to keep recipes like Pistachio-Crusted Cod around.

Spaghetti Squash: The Universal Side Dish

We have been trying to eat less white carbs over here, which means that I don’t cook a lot of rice, potatoes, bread, and noodles. Which is great for my hips but hard on my brain. Meaning, I have to think a bit harder about what to serve with what. My two go-to sides of […]

Caldo De Res: Authentic Mexican Beef and Vegetable Soup

I love how food, like yarn, can sew together generations. I never met my mother’s mother, Maria (she died before I was born), but I think of her often. I think of her at times, like last week, when after a long day all I wanted was a mug of tea and hot bath, and […]
