  • Manzana Chili Verde and Firecracker Cornbread

    Another set of recipes in our trying-to-keep-it-light, post-holiday trend… I made this stew from Veganomicon and Lisa made an awesome cornbread adapted from a recipe @ 101 Cookbooks.  The chili has too many green vegetables to count, plus Granny Smith apples!  The cornbread had a nice little kick that went really well with the chili.

  • Barley Risotto with Grapefruit and Arugula

    We’re trying to eat lighter meals now that we’re back from vacation, and this one from Super Natural Cooking seemed to be on the lighter side, yet filling.

  • Guest Post: Salmon Chowder

    A very special guest post this evening from Lisa’s brother Chris (yes, another Chris…) and his girlfriend Jenn — a delicious Salmon Chowder from The Ultimate Soup Bible. C&J made an enormous cauldron of the chowder that fed nine or ten lucky souls over the course of two nights. I only had my point-and-shoot camera […]

  • Quinoa with Corn, Kale, Roasted Cherry Tomatoes… and more…

    Lisa spotted this everything-but-the-kitchen-sink quinoa recipe over at 101 Cookbooks, where it’s titled “Heather’s Quinoa”. We’re glad that Heidi decided to post this mish-mash, we both really enjoyed all the different tastes and textures. We had a small block of Gruyere left in the fridge, so we also invited that little guy to the party. […]
