Recipe for Crepes

Crepes

Crepes

Crepes are wonderful versatile. They work as a sweet treat or a savory dinner. The ones I made in this example were full of mushroom, spinach, and mozzarella cheese. They are delicious so get creative with the filling. Recently, I revisited the recipe and did a cauliflower, tomato, and pepper jack filling. You can always go for a breakfast filling with eggs or something sweet like jam or nutella.

Crepes are super easy to make. If you can cook pancakes, you can do this.

Egg Salad Sandwich

Egg Salad Sandwich

I’d never eaten an egg salad sandwich until about a year ago. I know that sounds silly as they’re supposed to be something of a staple sandwich. Or perhaps just an alternative to PB&J? But when I came across this recipe, which was so simple, yet so flavorful, I had to try egg salad.

To my pleasure, this egg salad sandwich rocks. It’s so good, I’ll admit to eating the egg salad even without bread. (If you’re interested in making your own bread to go along, I highly recommend this white bread which I’ve made a dozen times.)

Sweet Corn Cakes with Avocado and Salsa

Sweet Corn Cakes with Avocado and Salsa

When corn comes into season, these Sweet Corn Cakes are the first thing on my plate. Of course, they’re even better with avocados on top. They probably aren’t the healthiest option. Make sure to pat the grease out of them. They are just delicious. The original recipe is here.

Stuffed Artichokes

Stuffed Artichokes

Stuffed artichokes are tasty. However, they are moderately annoying to clean out to stuff, especially compared to how easy the rest of this recipe is. One artichoke is filling for two people. Of course, that depends on how many germs you’re willing to share because I wouldn’t try to cut them in half.

Stuffed Fried Bread Dough

Stuffed Fried Bread Dough is delicious. It’s really up to you what you stuff it with. I’ve done it with mozzarella, a little basil, tomatoes, and spinach. Jason added some pepperoni to his own. I’m sure you could make some sweet ones too.

Recipe for Eggplant-Almond Enchiladas

Feb 4th, 2010 Posted in Main Dish | 2 comments »

This was a big hit in my house. Jason and I both really loved it and have made it multiple times. It’s also probably the most “it has what in it?” dish. Which makes it really fun to make for guests.

Recipe for Spinach-Ricotta Pie

As you might know, I love pie. Fruit pies. Meringue pies. Savory pies. Pies remind me of my grandma’s house. She’s a master pie-maker, and as you know, I use her pie crust recipe.

Savory Indian Sweet Potatoes

I love this dish because it’s both sweet and spicy at the same time. Plus, really easy to make. Did I mention, delicious? The texture is really similar to mash potatoes, but so much better.

Cauliflower-Cheese Pie

Mar 16th, 2009 Posted in Main Dish | no comment »

Jason and I went on a little pie loving streak as we were watching Twin Peaks, and this Cauliflower-Cheese Pie was one of the many I made. This yummy pie isn’t the most healthy vegetable pie, but it is delicious and not too hard to make. Recipe is originally from the Moosewood Cookbook and calls for a grated potato crust, but I rebelled and just used my grandma’s flour pie crust.

Spinach Quesadillas

Mar 14th, 2009 Posted in Main Dish | no comment »

I was asked by a reader to post some of my favorite quick recipes. The ones that I make when I don’t have the time, energy, or the willingness to really cook a meal. The times that I don’t make Jason cook, which always ends up with some variation of Kraft Mac’n’Cheese and hot dogs (vegetarian ones for me) on his George Foreman Grill.

My spinach quesadillas were an invention and necessity when I was in college. A combination of inspiration from my childhood — my mother was a big fan of the “cheese melts in the microwave” mantra — and crepes from a little restaurant that used to be in my hometown. In college, I distracted an entire senior creative writing class, who were extremely tired of school food, with their delicious aroma.
