Stovetop Fresh Corn and Cheese Dip

Stovetop Fresh Corn and Cheese Dip

In 1996 when we first started cooking together many of our meals were vegetarian based. Diane was a vegetarian and Todd worked in a vegetarian restaurant, so it was totally natural for our daily menu to have a variety of vegetable dishes. Besides, we were young kids starting out our new lives together and we […]

Crunchy, Sweet, and Tangy Bread and Butter Pickles

Crunchy, Sweet, and Tangy Bread and Butter Pickles

I love bread and butter pickles. That sweet tangy crunch layered into burgers, diced in tunafish sandwiches, or just grabbed straight out of the jar and snacked on. As a kid it was the only pickled thing I really liked. Dill pickles, pickled onions, pickled beets, etc… Ick. Or at least that’s what my palate […]

Roasted Corn Tabouli and Ode to Summer Corn

Roasted Corn Tabouli and Ode to Summer Corn

For some reason when August rolls around it feels as if it is our last chance at eating corn. And by eating corn we mean the super good, freshly-picked, wipe the chin, juicy sweet corn.  Once September arrives everyone seems to be ready to immediately switch seasonal gears and it’s all about Autumn. As July comes […]

Heirloom Tomato Galette

Heirloom Tomato Galette

We’re trying to be good kids this is the Summer by making it a season of “to-do’s”. If any of you have one of these lists, we’ve probably got you beat by a mile. Or two. We’ve just go so much we want to do and so little time. Well, we committed ourselves to being […]

Chili Garlic Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Fresh Herbs

Chili Garlic Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Fresh Herbs

Even when it’s hot outside we’re craving a dinner with something roasted in the oven. This just might be one of the last dishes that we roast in the oven for the next few months. Why? Because our traditional wood-fired oven is almost complete. Whew. It’s an epic project that includes lots of planning, prepping […]

Roasted Carrots with Mint Lemon Dressing

Roasted Carrots with Mint Lemon Dressing

Last week we had a heat wave that lasted five days of hot, dry, Santa-Ana windy weather above 95 degrees. We were dying over here, so to make it bearable we ate lots of blackberry mojito pops. That’s how to cool down and freshen spirits in style! But mojito pops wasn’t all that we nourished […]

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 […]

Crispy Baked Beet Green Chips

We had a full day of green eating a few weeks ago and it doesn’t seem to stop. When we cooked up mustard greens we also made a batch of beet green chips as a test. This test turned out to be a nice surprise and worthy of sharing, so here’s what we have to […]

Garlicky Winter Greens and Chickpea Salad

Garlicky Winter Greens and Chickpea Salad

Before we left on our crazy seven week Bountiful book tour and jet down to Southern Australia, we took a look at our dormant and sleepy garden. And then we sighed, wondering if it’s too early to try to seed for Winter veggies. It’s usually during end of October to beginning of December that the […]

Refreshing and Light Sesame Cucumber Carrot Salad

Refreshing and Light Sesame Cucumber Carrot Salad

It’s this time of year that everyone around us seems to be sharing lists of resolutions and aspirations of what their vision of 2014 could be. For us? We’ll just say that instead of listing-out resolutions, we started off New Years Day with a big batch of yummy fried chicken and some extra sips of […]

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Lemon Mustard Parsley Dressing

Now everyone, don’t bum-rush to the kitchen all at once now because I know you’re super excited about another brussels sprouts recipe. Or at least I’m hoping you’re as hungry and excited as I am.

Sausage Potatoes au Gratin

Sausage Potatoes au Gratin

Every year, two big batches of Todd’s famous potatoes au gratin makes it way to our Thanksgiving table. It’s one of those dishes that the whole family is religiously (and hopelessly) in love with. All these eaters ask about the potatoes au gratin first, before anyone ever asks about the turkey. Regardless of how much […]

Teriyaki Glazed Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Teriyaki Glazed Roasted Brussels Sprouts

A quick dinner before a long trip. That’s what’s been happening over the last 4 days since we’ve returned from New York City and Seattle. We don’t feel like such losers when we minimize food waste, especially when it comes to brussels sprouts. We went through another fridge-clearing session after shooting for two days this […]

Sriracha Roasted Cauliflower Recipe and Signing at OXO in NYC

We love NYC, there’s no doubt that. The city is a beast on its own, but around every corner, there’s a gem of a find. The energy, vibe, food and people keep us awake into the wee hours of the night.  And best of all, OXO headquarters is in NYC and what better way to […]

Grilled Green Tomatoes, An Accidental Dish

Grilled Green Tomatoes, An Accidental Dish

It’s always an accident. At some point during my garden duties of tying up the tomato vines on the trellis, I inevitably bump a healthy green tomato and watch it fall to the ground. Darn it. There’s nothing more frustrating than to watch a beautiful heirloom tomato grow to it’s perfect shape and never see […]

Roasted Zucchini with Cheese and Herbs

Roasted Zucchini with Cheese and Herbs

A vegetable side dish doesn’t have to be complicated. I often remind myself of this when menu planning for a party of twelve or more. Even if I’m making dinner for two, I remind myself again and again: keep it simple, keep it fresh and it will be great. Sometimes I’ll browse through a cookbook […]
