Make Ahead

  • Not long ago, my daughter wondered aloud what those green and purple pointy cauliflower looking vegetables are in the supermarket. She insisted that we buy one so she could try it, which of course I happily obliged. When we got home she looked it up and learned that romanesco is very similar in taste and texture to cauliflower, but
  • This unexpected salad has a Moroccan flare to it, but not so much that it will overshadow other flavors on your table. Lentils are a staple in our household, and if you are not familiar with them I urge you to give them a go.

Roasting your own beets isn’t difficult, but does take time. If it doesn’t fit into your schedule, many groceries carry roasted beets in their
  • My kids and I try and schedule a cooking night each week. On their night, they prepare dinner with me start to finish, including dessert – which is not only their favorite part, but likely why they agree to the cooking part in the first place 😉 Most days, after they get home from school we open the fridge together and figure
