1. Thai Chicken Curry

    The temperature is finally getting cooler around here, and so I’m pulling out the Dutch Oven and making all sorts of comforting, slow-cooking, rib-sticking meals. One of my favorites is making a chicken curry. Braising the chicken in coconut milk and warming spices makes for a perfect fall din ...

  3. Cheater’s Ratatouille, or Pesto Zucchini, Tomato and Eggplant Bake

    I love ratatouille. It’s an awesome dish that seems to just sing the highest notes of the end of summer and the start of fall. (Yes, I realize it’s now officially fall. Around here, however, it’s still in the mid-90s, and so it’s still very much feeling like summer.) It’ ...

  4. Gluten-Free in 1, 2, 3: The Basics of Going Gluten-Free

    Going gluten-free? Whether you just learned that you should follow a gluten-free diet on the advice of your doctor or nutritionist, either from a diagnosis of celiac disease or gluten intolerance, or have you simply made the decision to go gluten-free, suspecting gluten may be at the root of your he ...

  5. Homestyle Meatloaf

    Meatloaf. It’s one of those polarizing meals, it seems. Most people either hate it or love it. Personally, I think that has a lot to do with what meatloaf you grew up eating – some people had some unappetizing versions that haunt them forever. (Or maybe it was those bad memories of the s ...

  6. Pear Buckwheat Cake

    It’s been a while since I’ve made a rustic cake like this. Something that could be as welcome at a breakfast or brunch table as after dinner. Something your grandmother might make. Something unpretentious; something that just says “Hey, it’s late summer, sit down and enjoy so ...

  7. Pork Chops with Orange Sauce

      A few weeks ago, we stocked our freezer full of pork. A friend and I split a locally raised, pastured pig. I couldn’t have been more excited. We have all sorts of bratwurst, pork roasts, chops, bacon, and more. We’ve really been enjoying the pork bounty. But after a few dinners of ...

  8. Dairy-Free Coffee Panna Cotta

    I’m definitely a fan of coffee in desserts. Okay, let’s face it: I’m really just a fan of coffee. I love using it in unexpected places – in rub mixes for meat, for example. I’ve used it before in brownies. I love it in ice cream, and lately, I’m really digging sta ...

  9. Sriracha-Lime Grilled Okra

    In late Texas summers, when it’s been hot and dry for weeks on end and the tomatoes and strawberries have long wilted under the sun, what’s still growing without fail? Okra. And boy, how does it grow!? I just have a modest number of plants, but I go outside every afternoon to water, and ...

  10. Cucumber Salad with Tahini and Basil

    My ridiculously successful cucumber season is coming to a close. I’ve eaten more cucumbers this summer than ever, and have given many away. But even still, I haven’t tired of them. I truly love cucumbers. And this year, thanks to the slightly lower temps (our usual never-ending stretch o ...

  11. Peanut Butter Chocolate Crispy Squares

    I’ve been thinking lately about how we are all in back-to-school mode. I’ve been browsing a bunch of lunchbox recipes on Pinterest lately. My step-kids don’t live with us, and so I don’t get to experience that fun/stress, but I can certainly empathize. Heck, it’s tough ...

    If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, I’m sure you’ve seen my cucumbers. I’m growing Armenian cucumbers for the first time, and boy, are these things prolific. I love them. They seem to enjoy this Texas heat – they’re never bitter no matter how hot it gets. They are ...

    This isn’t really a planned post, but I thought maybe I shouldn’t keep the amazingness all to myself. So you’ll have to be satisfied with an iPhone photo over something that comes from my DSLR. I’m sure you’ll let it slide…this time. Right? I have recently learned ...

    I love watermelon. I mean, who doesn’t? It’s cool, refreshing, and just screams summer. In fact, I love it so much that I am attempting to grow my own for the first time this year. I planted several starter plants in the spring, and watched as they grew and spread their vines ALL OVER my ...

    Friends, I apologize. I thought I’d shared this amazing little recipe with you about a year ago. But browsing through some things, I realized I hadn’t. That’s darn-near shameful. Keeping such a lovely little summer treat like this from you. It’s just not right. So I figured I ...

    Those of you that are avid gluten-free bakers: have you ever noticed how much a brand change in a gluten-free flour affects your end result? I’ve heard this, but didn’t really experience it to a point where I thought “ugh, I really need to stick with this other brand” until I ...

    Why, oh why, has it taken me so long to make sorbet? I mean, it would seem like an obvious first step once going dairy-free – that if I was to be making a frozen dessert, it would be sorbet. After all, sorbet is naturally dairy-free. But no – I dove headfirst into making ice [...] ...

  20. Vietnamese Shrimp Summer Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce

    Before I went gluten-free, I would often treat myself to Vietnamese for lunch. A gigantic bowl of steaming pho and summer rolls could turn even the most difficult of days into a better one. There is something just so satisfying to me about the bold, in-your-face flavors of those two dishes. TheyR ...
