Summer squash gratin with nutmeg béchamel (gluten free)

07.31.13

When the doorbell rings and you find a 2-foot tall little girl standing there holding an armful of fresh zucchini, you can’t help but smile. She’s shyly grinning while barely hanging on to the three large squash that are about the size of her arms. She hardly says a word, but you can tell how [continue reading...]

Spinach artichoke dip stuffed mushrooms

03.29.13

Despite attending two Pac 10 schools, I have very little interest in March Madness. I feel pretty much the same about it as I do about the Superbowl. If my friends are watching, I’m more than happy to make finger food all day and chat during commercial breaks. Except if there’s a game on my [continue reading...]

Cheddar sausage buttermilk biscuits

When Dad tells you he wants Lucas to bring work clothes to replace the fence over the 4-day Thankgiving weekend, he’s not joking. No matter how much you laugh at him, he’s dead serious. Dad doesn’t believe in wasting a perfectly sunny consecutive three days (okay, fine, you can have Thursday off). Even when he’s [continue reading...]

Loaded sweet potato portabella mushrooms

When I decided that baby carrots, granola, and string cheese weren’t substantial enough to thrive a week on, I finally dragged myself to the store. With Lucas still in China, I wanted something simple, but hearty. It could take no longer than 20 minutes, but had to taste delicious enough to be worth changing out [continue reading...]

Korean BBQ beef quesadillas

Do you ever put leftovers in your freezer, but then forget they’re there or forget what they are? I should really be better about labeling things that go into my freezer. Especially since it’s packed full, but when I open it, I think, “We’ve got NOTHING to eat in here” and slam it shut again. Not [continue reading...]

Pepperoni pizza quesadillas

I’ve been holding out on you. While I have been able to squeeze in a bit of time in the kitchen, finding time to write about it is a totally different story. We got home from Whistler/Vancouver/Seattle Wednesday morning around 2:30am, only to wake up a few hours later to a jam-packed workday. The evening ended with a food-filled [continue reading...]

Chicken and artichoke pesto quesadillas

03.22.12

Grad school productivity is inversely related to cooking and blogging; as I become more immersed in reading and writing theories on math education, my kitchen becomes less used and my blogging less frequent. I start rummaging through my freezer to find something to eat because going to the store (and planning a shopping list) would [continue reading...]

Trio of non-traditional bruschetta

02.19.12

My absolute favorite restaurant in Philly that has a frequent diner’s card – for every $500 spend, you receive a $50 gift card. Whenever I eat there with friends, the entire bill gets tallied on my card, and let’s just say, I’ve earned multiple $50 gift cards. My Philadelphia friends don’t need me to introduce [continue reading...]
