These Peppers Stuffed with Everything Good (like sausage and gruyere) are a simple and easy weeknight meal everyone will enjoy! Today is the last day of the Pepper Party – and I’m a little sad that it’s over already. I’ve really been enjoying coming up with fun pepper recipes and I love seeing what everyone […]
We’re having a Pepper Party, and you’re invited! A few of my blogger friends and I have teamed up with Divemex this week to celebrate all things bell pepper (and give away some amazing prizes). Bell peppers are one of my favorite items on a vegetable platter, but I rarely think to plan a meal around them so I was excited to have an excuse to think up some fun new recipes.
I’ve seen a new trend popping up over the last summer or two: summer roll parties! I have to admit, I kind of love it. Summer rolls are pretty much the perfect food when it’s insufferably hot out – they’re cool, crisp, and filled with watery vegetables and fresh herbs. Since they’re eaten at room temperature the fillings can all be made ahead, which mean you can actually spend time with your guests instead of in the kitchen.
Yeah, so remember how I said all I wanted to do was curl up on the couch with a blanket? Apparently it’s not because it’s fall… it’s because I’m sick! Ugh. I have a terrible cold – the worst one I’ve had in years. Three of the last four meals I’ve eaten have been soup. Luckily, I have a big pot of this roasted eggplant and lentil soup in the fridge, so all I have to do is heat it up (which is about all I have the energy for right now).
This soup is just want I need though. It’s rich, earthy, and slightly spicy, with a subtle Middle Eastern flavor from roasted eggplant, tomatoes, and ras el hanout. A dollop of coconut yogurt finishes it off and balances out the spiciness.
Can we get real with each other for a minute? As a food blogger, there’s this ridiculous pressure that every recipe has to be earth shatteringly wonderful. They have to be unique, creative, and easy enough that people will actually attempt making it themselves. The photos have to be gorgeous and there has to be […]
Soup season is here! Soup season is here!
This creamy Thai corn chowder is the perfect way to bridge the gap between summer and fall. It has a fresh, almost floral flavor that highlights the last of summer’s sweet corn, and a thick velvety texture that’s super cozy and luxurious. I love it! And I love it even more knowing that it can be on the table in just about a half an hour (and that 20 minutes of that it just simmering the broth!)
I’ve been participating in #SundaySupper for a few months now and I absolutely love it. Now that I’ve learned the ropes, I decided to join in the other part of the movement: #WeekdaySupper.
