I love homemade pretzels. Whether they're rods, bites or twists, they're the perfect warm and savory snack.

 

Or a meal, in the case of this recipe. Hello, fifty pretzels! Hello, spicy cheddar dip!

 

Serve these with some crudités to feel like a good adult who eats their vegetables, and you'll have a whimsical Saturday night meal.

If you're in the mood for a slightly spicy soup and you have some leftover chicken, this is the meal for you. It's loaded with blackening spice, wild rice, chicken and vegetables.

 

It's a most excellent little soup on a cold day, when you want a really simple meal to warm you from your head to your toes.

With the addition of our new mini food processor,“Baby Blue” to our kitchen, I've been having a ball making super small batches of things.

 

From pesto to salsa, it's actually really fun to make half cup batches of sauces for an impromptu lunch or breakfast addition.

 

And the other day it dawned on me, that instead of chopping parsley for tabouli, I could just make a fresh puree.

 

Which I highly recommend.

 

The lemon and parsley infuse every last bite of the tabouli with brightness.

 

Can tabouli make you swoon?

 

Yes, it can.

 

Also, for our anniversary last week we went shopping for esoteric ingredients in a different city. Why not? And we found pea shoots!

 

In January!

 

Naturally they've been popping up in nearly everything we've made for the last few days.

 

This tabouli was no exception.

 

 
Homemade Tahini: The Easiest and Most Delicious Paste You'll Make PDF E-mail

For Christmas I received a small food processor as a gift from my cousin. It's amazing. And the first thing I made with “Baby Blue,” was homemade tahini.

 

 

Tahini isn't only a foundation for hummus, it's a wonderful addition to vinaigrettes, cold noodles – and don't forget chicken shawarma. The pure sesame taste is incredibly addictive.

 

Bonus: It's so simple to make that you'll be incorporating a lot more tahini into more dishes of your own.

 

Double bonus: It will keep for two months in the refrigerator.

 

 
Avocado Salad with Grapefruit and Lime Vinaigrette PDF E-mail

Considering the name of this recipe, you might be wondering why there's not a photo of a grapefruit in the photo.

 

Funny story.

 

If you're a multiple pet owner, I'm sure you've had the experience where one pet – prefers one person.

 

That's certainly the case around here.

 

Big Ginger Cat is my guy. He follows me around, is only really happy in my lap, and sleeps on my head.

 

Little Black Kitten, however, loves Jedd. He really loves Jedd. He practically knocks over furniture when he hears Jedd come through the door.

 

Don't get me wrong, Little Black Kitten likes me – but I'm no Jedd.

 

So, today when I was photographing this delicious little salad – something amazing happened.

 

I sat down for a moment to refresh the bluegrass radio channel on my laptop, when I realized I'd been photographing the dish without the grapefruit.

 

Just as I was standing up to head to the kitchen, Little Black Kitten jumped on my lap.

 

He jumped on my lap!

 

And then he snuggled into my arm!

 

And then he purred!

 

And then he closed his eyes and fell asleep!

 

Needless to say, I chose kitten snuggles over a fully finished photo of the dish.

 

 

(For reference, how can you resist that face?)

 

 

However once he woke up, the light was gone.

 

So, there's no grapefruit in the photo.

 

It's an awfully good salad though. Don't let my lack of attention to detail serve as a reason not to try this.

 

It's full of citrus and spice and creamy avocado.

 

You can't go wrong with that.
