Black Bean Confetti Salad

Let me share with you what I’ve been eating for three straight days: this Black Bean Confetti Salad. I mentioned yesterday that I got to spend some much-needed time with my family on Sunday. I concocted this deliciously colorful mess to take with because the only day I will ever in my life show up …

Easy Basil Walnut Pesto

A Moral Dilemma. And, no, it has nothing to do with pesto. I think basil pesto is pretty uncontroversial. Anyway… if you drive, you’ve been on one side of this situation or the other… or both. You’ll be surprised to find that I’m actually not talking about the road rage that posesses my middle finger to have …

A Sister’s Request

My littlest sister is a pretty proficient kitchen-ista (our other sister is the brownie/pumpkin muffin queen; her ability to bake any and everything into muffin cups can’t be touched). Every once in awhile she sends me a completely random photo of something she found a minute to prepare (though I have no idea when she …

Sauce with San Marzano Tomatoes, Butter, and Onion

San Marzano Tomato Sauce

A rich tomato sauce that boasts tender onions and a whole stick of butter. San Marzano Tomato Sauce was inspired by a recipe scribble in the pages of a chic lit book. After reading I just had to bring it to life! This is one of the first recipes I published! I have updated the …
