One Pot Stovetop Creamy Kale Mac and Cheese

One Pot Stovetop Creamy Kale Mac and Cheese

Yes, adding kale can justify mac and cheese being “healthier”, can’t it? Please say yes because that’s what my conscience was telling me when I wanted to combine two of my top 25 foods all in one pot. Perhaps I’m making up lost time as a kid when all I wanted to eat was mac and cheese, but instead I was fed a healthy diet of fresh fish, greens and rice. Oh, the “trauma” of eating fresh homemade food during childhood.

Please, let me explain.»

Please welcome Dara Michalski of Cookin’ Canuck.  She’s a lovely mother of 2 boys who cooks up a beautiful storm of home-cooked meals on her blog.

Beet Greens and Goat Cheese Crostini- Eat your greens

Our biggest apologies to all you friends who are still frozen under snow or drenched with rain. This post isn’t to gloat about our wonderful sunshine and blue skies, but rather, it’s about reminding you to enjoy eating your beet greens. Although, it doesn’t hurt to brag about our warm weather to you all cause it could warm-up you cold weather folks a bit! (but if you’re an outstanding tele-skier like Jen Yu, then you’ll want to be buried under snow!)

Endive & Radicchio Salad w/Creamy Parmesan Dressing from Rancho La Puerta Cookbook

I’m guilty and fessing up to the fact that I often drown my salads in dressing. Simple, crisp and fresh salads are my favorite ways to eat greens, sans all the complicated toppings. The extra toppings often get in the way of my favorite greens. But to contradict myself in a bowl of lettuce, I’ll often plunge the delicate leaves in a bath of oil and vinegar, suffocating my salad in excess dressing. Bad me, bad.

Key ingredients to healthy & flavorful dressing: non-fat yogurt, »

Hot Chorizo Cream Cheese Dip – A recipe dedicated to my little brother

My little brother is man of few words. Indeed, he’s grown-up, a man who is only a few years my junior, but he’ll always be a little brother to me.

Since childhood, his silence was often overlooked because with so many frolicking kids in one household, all the loud chatter and squabble over the one television was usually ignored. With 6 high energy kids between the ages of 5-16, my parents became selectively deaf to all our loud obsessions and disputes over the Atari game »

Creamy Hot Stove-Top Crab Dip for the Oven-Less

I’m often impatient in the kitchen when it comes to having to use the oven to bake a simple dish. Just the thought of having to pre-heat the oven makes me cringe at the waste of time and energy it takes to create a simple meal. It’s a relief for me to be able to adapt a dish that is traditionally baked in the oven to be cooked on the stove. My impatience enjoys the fact that it doesn’t have to wait for the oven »

Olive Oil Dinner Rolls with Caramelized Onion & Gorgonzola

Woe to the dinner roll.  So plain and boring.  Dinner rolls piled in a basket to stave off hunger before the “real meal” arrives or  utilized as a gravy clean up tool throughout the feast. It’s the wallflower of the dinner table.

It is time for the dinner roll to stand and say “Notice Me!”  Let mashed potatoes and green beans be the boring ones.  Introduce the feasting masses to dinner roll eye-rolling goodness and show ‘em you’ve got soul and pizazz.  Announce your bad-ass »

Fig & Brie Cheese Pizza – Summer isn’t over yet!

We were ready for Autumn, or what ever version Southern California is capable of, and looking forward to pumpkins, apples and the cooler dry air that marks our fall. However the weather has been indecisive about what season it wants to represent, or maybe it was one last summer  ho-rah, because we were just inundated with several weeks of hot, 90°+ sunshine.

Unfortunately, our extension of hot days and plenty of sunshine is playing tricks on the garden. Our tomatoes have found their “second wind” »
