Gluten-Free Fattoush Salad with Za’atar Chickpea Crisps — a hearty, vegetarian salad featuring crunchy gluten-free chickpea crackers and a lemon oregano dressing. Hi guys! We took a bit of a belated spring break last week to spend a few days skiing in the 70-degree sunshine, hot tubbing to our pruney toes’ content and bingeing reruns of Sex and the City (and, if we’re being honest, Naked and Afraid) like one can only do in the dim, guiltless light of a hotel room. The first two nights of our trip, Lana stayed with our parents, so we also embarked on a … Read More

Mason Jar Greek-Style Watermelon Salads

Mason Jar Greek-Style Watermelon Salads recipe (via thepigandquill.com) #vegetarian #glutenfree #lunch

Thank you National Watermelon Promotion Board for sponsoring this post. Watermelon is the perfect portable food for enjoying wherever life takes you! Lana’s on break from school for the entire month of August, and somehow we’re busier than ever. We’ve got swim, as usual, and we just added gymnastics (you should see the adorable wardrobe of unitards I’m building for her!) — but we’re also excellent at staying busy with plenty of un-busy activities, too. We popped into the woods for hiking adventures the past two weekends, and long mornings on the beach are never a hard sell. This week, … Read More

greek sweet potato fries with curried tzatziki

greek sweet potato fries with curried tzatziki (via thepigandquill.com)

Just a shortie today because I’ve got roughly three weeks of freezer meals calling out to be labeled and organized and tetris’d into a spot that was previously occupied by six frozen ‘naners. Which have now become two ginormous loaves of pineapple-banana loaf cake, also headed for the freezer. Systems are failing. (PS – Do you guys have any interest in the whole freezer food game plan? Mehbeh I’ll do a little posty-post about how it’s all coming together and then a Part Deux when it all gets cooked up for countless post-baby dins and inevitably falls miserably apart. Is that … Read More

toasted walnut enchilada hummus with cilantro + lime

Two recipes in one: toasty, nutty hummus drizzled with a fast and foolproof spicy sauce. Super addicting! Full recipe at www.thepigandquill.com. #vegan #superbowl #snacks #recipe

Oh yay! You guys are still here. Meaning my affinity for hot dogs (and a decidedly Americasian interpretation, at that) didn’t scare you away. I knew you could hang. As your reward, this week we’re talking more Superbowl-ready eats that are borderline goofy (enchilada sauce on toppa hummus? she dun lost her shit!) but silly delicious all the same. You’ll see what I mean when we get into the nitty gritty later on. And really, is it even that weird? It’s clearly not bizarre enough to warrant the gibberish I keep slapping in between all these parentheses (like this crap — which is … Read More

Springtime Broccoli Cheese Soup with Peas & Scallions (gluten-free, vegetarian)

I think I’m confused. With triple digits in this week’s forecast, it’s not exactly the season for soup, and yet it’s sort of all I can think about these days. It’s so simple. And it makes such stellar use of those CSA veggies that are threatening slime in the crisper drawer. I always have the best intentions. Really, I do. Last night we sat down to piping bowls of this favorite chowder, light on the milk and bulked up with a few handfuls of sweet, leafy spigarello. Before that, it was a fuschia-hued dream of beets whirled with Indian spices … Read More
