I've found my new lunchtime salad for February. It has roasted sweet potatoes, romaine, pomegranate seeds, salty feta, and a heavy dose of blood orange vinaigrette. It's just the right midday pick-me-up for the wintery New York month. Care to join me?
Franken-desserts might be too cool for school right now, but I've got my eye on a new kind of mash-up. Let's talk comfort foods. Take, for example, chili and mac and cheese. There's no reason the two classic comfort foods should be kept apart. Why isn't more of this kind of melding of recipes happening?
The classic chocolate molten lava cake is a sight to behold and a privilege to devour. The textural components of the cake-y outside and liquid inside works great with chocolate, but there are other, trendier ways to achieve this kind of dessert. Enter: Earthy, vibrant, totally delicious matcha.
Fine, okay — this isn't really a salad, but it is the only recipe I've ever seen that comes close to adding potato chips to something healthy and that actually makes sense. Fresh, homemade potato chips are mixed with a Thai herb salad that includes cilantro, basil, and fish sauce. The combination just works.
Queue up the crackling fire, softest slippers, and oversized sweaters. This recipe needs to happen in your kitchen before the snow has melted. Trust me. This vegetarian dreamboat is chock-full of spinach, artichoke hearts, pesto, beans, and of course, tortellini.
Mornings can be tough when you have a good blender. There are just too many smoothie options to consider: Green smoothies have a lot of great vegetables, while berry smoothies are sweet and easy. How are you supposed to decide? This smoothie recipe has the best of both worlds, and looks great too.
Tossing a whole bunch of delicious things into a casserole pan and throwing it in the oven to bake until bubbly at 400°F sounds like a great way to welcome the weekend. But, if you can't wait (like me), and want something for brunch-for-dinner tonight, this hearty sausage casserole is the right choice.
When it comes to easy meals, I always turn to eggs. But eggs can't always be the star of a dish — that just gets boring. This simple meal of fried egg on pita comes to life with the help of an awesome cucumber and jalapeño salsa and a stream of homemade sriracha. Every simple meal should be so lucky!
Do you want to make fried rice for dinner, but don't feel like making a large amount? Or do you not have a stove to work with? Maybe you even live in a dorm room? This recipe is the answer to your dreams: egg "fried" rice in the microwave!
This is not your lentil, black bean, or miso soup. No, this gorgeous recipe is full of parmesan, cream, milk, and homemade croutons. Some might call this soup indulgent, others might call it romantic, but I'm calling it dinner tonight.
