The best pizza I’ve ever had was at a little neighborhood restaurant in Paris. It was the kind of place where, rather than letting me order a second glass of wine to meet the credit card minimum, they trusted me to go to the ATM across the street and come back to pay. The pizza, which I later learned is called Pizza Quattro Stagioni (or Four Seasons Pizza), was topped with salty prosciutto, earthy mushrooms, delicate artichoke hearts, and briny kalamata olives.

Italian Chicken Panini {In a Waffle Iron!}

How to make Panini in a Waffl Iron

Remember when I made Asian Calamari Salad and I wrote about how it was more of a concept than a recipe? This is sort of like that. Sure, I’ll give you a recipe for an insanely good Italian chicken panini. But that’s not really the point. The point is that YOU CAN MAKE A PANINI IN YOUR WAFFLE IRON. I mean, what?! Is your mind as blown by that as mine was?

I saw the idea in last month’s issue of Rachael Ray’s magazine and I just had to try it right away. It’s kind of brilliant.

What’s for Lunch? {A GladWare Review}



I spend a lot of time writing about dinner and occasionally I talk about breakfast (or brunch) but I very rarely write about lunch – mostly because I don’t usually make anything special. I’ve never been a big fan of sandwiches, so I usually just bring leftovers. Glad recently asked me to review some of their products and, since I’ve been using them to pack up my lunches for years, I thought it would be a great opportunity to talk about what I eat during the day.

Carrot, Quinoa & Pistachio Salad

Carrot, Quinoa, and Pistachio Salad from


Last Saturday I went a little overboard at lunch (I had a craving for a gooey cheese quesadilla that I needed to satisfy!), so I wanted to make something a little lighter for dinner to balance it out. I wandered around Shop Rite without much of a plan, just pulling whatever healthy ingredients sounded appetizing into my cart. I ended up making an easy carrot, quinoa, and pistachio salad. I served the salad with pita bread and baba ganoush, for a simple, yet very satisfying meal.

I’m willing to bet that when you think about enchilada fillings, sweet potato probably isn’t the first thing that crosses your mind. You’re thinking about it now though, right? And you get how sweet potato enchiladas are totally a thing?

Because they are. 

Spring Vegetable Soup with Pesto



The days are getting warmer and the sun is setting later – before you know it, soup season will be over! While I’ve had my fill of creamy chowders and stews, I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to soup yet.

Luckily, this spring vegetable soup with pesto is perfect for the warmer weather. It’s light and brothy, with tons of fresh vegetable (like zucchini and green beans) that finally seem right again.
