Pear Ravioli

After the bustle of the holidays, I look forward to cozy made-from-scratch meals at home that are slightly lighter & fresh. Making homemade pasta is just one of the many things I love to do during the cold winter months. It requires nothing but staple ingredients, a rolling pin & a few minutes of time.

Pan-Seared Ribeye Steak from JoPhoto

Truth be told, I'm not much of a steak eater. But when I do indulge, I indulge hard and I make sure to do it right. Sauteed mushrooms, a pad of butter, medium rare and straight off the grill (kind of making myself hungry here)... It never really occurred to me that there was any other way to do it. But after drooling over Kevin &...

Summer Lentil, Kale & Sweet Potato Soup

Cooking dinner for my family is a bit of a challenge. My kids basically only eat white food. Chicken nuggets, noodles, ice cream. Don't judge, we're working on it. My husband on the other hand is an 80/20 vegan. Meaning that 80% of the time he eats a strict vegan, no oil (at all) diet and the other 20% he eats whatever he wants. He does this for health reason and actively tries to push that 80% closer to 100%. Anyway, finding quick easy meals for both ends of the spectrum is always a challenge...
