Spring Things Salad with Pickled Kumquats + Whipped Brie

Spring Things Salad with Pickled Kumquats + Whipped Brie recipe (via thepigandquill.com) #vegetarian #glutenfree #lunch

Greetings from the household of a 3-year-old. She kicked off her fourth trip around the sun in April (it’s been a while since we’ve chatted, I know…), and it’s as if a switch was flipped with the whispered whoosh of those extinguished candles. We’re potty trained. We’re putting our clothes on by ourselves. We’re sleeping with a pillow and a blanket. We’re still doing this thing where she is we. I’ll outgrow it before it becomes obnoxious. And it’s not as if I was expecting the worst of age three, but all things considered, she’s been a delight. The first few … Read More

Three Cheese Butternut Squash Pasta Bake with Mushrooms + Chard

Three Cheese Butternut Pasta Bake with Mushrooms + Chard Recipe (via thepigandquill.com) #vegetarian #burrata #casserole

Some weeks ago I saw a Tasting Table video on Facebook I couldn’t resist. Jumbo shells, stuffed with roasted butternut squash and ricotta, topped with burrata and baked.

Looking in my fridge, I was heartbroken to remember using the last of our ricotta on that morning’s toast (with sliced pears and honey — never a bad idea) — but was blasted with hope in the … Read More

They don’t yet know this (ok, well maybe they do now), but I am making it my personal mission to get my in-laws fully aboard the tofu train. Not because I’m a super yooge advocate of soy protein or anything (here’s where I’ll remind you that we’re an all-things-in-moderation household), but because I’ve met me a tofu — many tofu/tofus/tofi? in fact — that are off-the-charts tasty, and I’m just not sure they’ve had the pleasure. Ok, I’m certain they’ve not had the pleasure, as evidenced by my mom-in-law meticulously removing tiny cubes of gauzy tofu from her fried rice. (To be fair, … Read More
