Southwestern Kale Chips PDF E-mail

Everyone knows that kale is remarkably good for you. But, here's a lesser known fact, kale chips are incredibly addictive.


You know that old ad campaign for a certain potato chip company that says, “You can't just eat one.”


That applies to these too.


They're salty, spicy and full of flavor. And impossible to put down.


Find a show to marathon on Netflix and whip a batch of these up. You'll love yourself.

Hello January, you old so-and-so of a dark and dreary month! We have a couple of tricks to minimize your 4:30 darkness, and barely breaking 15 degree days. First, we keep our twinkly lights up so it's still pretty and cheerful at night. The second trick is to throw a lot of turmeric into our dishes.


Not only is turmeric an anti-inflammatory and filled with manganese and iron, it's also inexpensive and beautiful. So when the days are short and dark – add turmeric to anything from a chicken dish to a casserole if you want to add a splash of sunny color.


Jedd's face lit up when he saw these thighs combined with turmeric and lemony artichokes.


Take that, January!


Barley and Endive Salad with Parsley Pesto PDF E-mail

My father-in-law is vegan, and he eats a decent amount of tofu. In fact, I never really enjoyed tofu until he made me his signature dish.


He mixes together a mean stir-fry of tofu, broccoli, onions, chili oil, and he uses garlic so judiciously that I don't even know it's there.


How awesome is that?


And I like to make him little meals to give him the night off from cooking occasionally.


This meal came about when I was craving barley for lunch and I decided to make a huge barley salad with enough leftover to send out to him.


Barley may seem like a slightly odd thing to crave, but it's been more and more on my mind - and on my plate. It's ridiculously good for you, and it's filling.


Oh, and it's inexpensive.


Also because it's December, endive seemed like an appropriate addition. Add some cherry tomatoes for color, a whole lot of herbs – and hello, pretty and healthy salad!


My father-in-law is fairly low-key kind of guy, so when my husband came home from the salad delivery and said that his father “loved it,” well, I felt like I'd won a Nobel prize.


“So, your Dad liked it?”


“No Launie, he loved it.”


“Holy macaroni.”

A couple of weeks ago, my mother and I decided that we'd go a little off the beaten path when it came to Thanksgiving this year. We thought we'd mix it up with some new recipes.


That was the plan.


And then on Tuesday my father said he needed turkey on Thanksgiving. Well, that seemed reasonable. Then my mother and I said that we needed stuffing. My mother asked Jedd what dish he needed for Thanksgiving to feel like Thanksgiving, and he said mashed potatoes.


My mother and I looked at each other and burst out laughing.


A traditional Thanksgiving, it will be!


But way back when – on Monday – when I thought we'd be trying something new, this was going to be my suggestion.


Stuffed pork. Mmmm.


However, since I couldn't make it for the holiday, I decided to make it just for us. Why not?


The most difficult thing about it was pounding the meat out evenly.


And any recipe where the most “difficult” thing is pounding out meat – isn't really difficult at all. Also, it's delicious and pretty.


I'm a sucker for pretty.

Pomegranate and Pear Salad with Parmesan Crisps PDF E-mail

I love to cook, my mother loves to cook, so Thanksgiving is our day to play. However, it's only going to be four of us for dinner this year, and Mom and I were talking about how to adjust the menu accordingly.


Then I threw out the idea that we jettison tradition and make something different.


The menu tentatively stands with a turkey breast stuffed with greens. And stuffing.


Because, we have to have stuffing.


But I want to make a big and beautiful winter salad, too. So, when I was at the grocery store and saw that pomegranates were only two dollars each – this salad idea popped into my head.



Bonus: It wasn't expensive either. Two dollars for the pomegranate, three dollars for the greens, a dollar for the pear, and I always have parmesan around.


Boom! Big winter salad it is! Serve the salad with some mini-muffins, because why not? They're adorable.
