Chicken Braised in Coconut Milk
This recipe is a total cheat. It’s the same base as the Beef Braised in Coconut Milk I posted awhile back, with a whole chicken in the pot instead of a beef roast. I’ve been meaning to do this for ages – even last week I picked up a chicken and coconut milk. The store…

Vegetable Soup with Wild Rice, Ham & Cream
When it snows, I make soup. And complain. And take ridiculously long baths. And pretend like I’m still on vacation. John and I were in Costa Rica last week and it was…heavenly. Too heavenly. I have been in a massive funk ever since we returned. The lovely view out of our home bedroom window that…

Pasta Amatriciana from Muir Glen Vine Dining Tour Dinner at Corner Table
It’s no secret that Corner Table Restaurant is one of my favorite spots in town – I wouldn’t have chosen to spend my birthday dinner there several weeks ago if it weren’t. So when I received an invitation for a promotional cooking demonstration and dinner at Corner Table, for the Muir Glen Tomato Vine Dining…
Using a Pot of Beans Part IV: Curried Lentils
Are you still with me? It’s been a lot of beans this last week, I know, but keep in mind that any of these dishes can be frozen for a future warm dinner. This version is sort of dal meets chana masala – two of my two favorite bean dishes. I’ve had the chana masala…
Minnesota Food Bloggers Unite!
Did you feel the earth shake around 7 pm last night? Your tummy rumble? Both at the same time? Blame Minnesota Food Bloggers, who gathered for the first time at lovely 128 Cafe in St. Paul to sip wine and say hello face-to-face. Bloggers chatted with farmers. Social media experts chatted with podcasters. Chefs chatted…

Using a Pot of Beans Part III: Lentil Hummus
This is the same Creamy, Fluffy Hummus – The Way It’s Supposed To Be recipe I posted a few months ago, except substituting black lentils for the garbanzos. That’s the thing with hummus – you can make it with whatever bean you have on hand and it will always be lovely. As true as it…
Using a Pot of Beans Part II: Almost-Instant Vegetable Bean Soup
This is a variation on a recipe from Jacques Pepin’s fabulous cookbook Fast Food My Way. If you like the idea of easy, fast, flavor-packed, healthy dinner ideas – yes, it delivers all of those things – I can’t recommend the book highly enough. As the name implies, this light-yet-filling soup is on the table…
