Meal plan: week of June 25

Yes yes I know that it is in fact June 26, which makes the posting of a meal plan for the week of June 25  questionable at best, but I tell you what, it has been a week. A great, super fun week with beloved […]

Meal plan: week of june 18

Ok, so now it’s somehow properly summer. We had a little false alarm a few weeks back, but now it’s really here. We hit up the Fremont Solstice Parade this Saturday, which is quite a way to ring in the summer if you have never […]

Meal plan: week of June 11

We had a few friends over last week for dinner, which was very fun indeed, and it happened to be on Wednesday, a.k.a. the day I don’t actually have to cook dinner, so I was inspired to make dessert instead. Even though it feels like […]

Peppy – and peppery – quick lunch (or dinner): Cabbage and eggs

Peppy – and peppery – quick lunch (or dinner): Cabbage and eggs

This is one of those recipes that is so much more than the sum of its parts. When my dear friend Shireen told me about this standby from her kitchen, I admit to being deeply suspicious. Cabbage? Green cabbage? Sautéed? With eggs? It just didn’t sound like something […]

Meal plan: week of May 21, 2018

Well. Last week’s meal plan – as basic as it was – went a little off the rails. It’s bananas how much my husband being out of town saps me of any energy for the kitchen. Or frankly, any energy for doing much of anything […]

Meal plan: week of April 15, 2018

Last week was spring break in Seattle, which meant a near-constant presence of helpful little hands and voices asking for something to eat, something to drink, someone to build a lego garage, no two, no three, no can you just build an entire town, someone […]

Meal plan: week of April 9, 2018

I was away last week and over the weekend, and this week is spring break, so getting dinner together the next few days is going to be a feat of willpower alone. While away, I pillaged my friend’s delightful cookbook collection, and she sent me […]
