Turkey Meatloaf

By Sally Vargas Ah, meatloaf…the American classic supper!
Despite her desperate five o’clock scramble, my mom – an artist and mother of four — always managed to pull off a mean meatloaf.
I remember her frantically pulling apart a slice or two of bread to make crumbs, and then throwing them into a bowl with an egg, some ketchup, grated onion, and ground beef. And then there was the grated carrot, which qualified as a vegetable (along with the ketchup).
She shaped it into a mound, threw it in the pan, drizzled the top with more ketchup and tossed it into the oven. Phew! Let’s just …read more

Life is busy. Leftovers are nice.
Eating leftovers wasn’t at the top of my “to do” list when I was a single 20-something. Now that I’m feeding a family of four, and doing so three times a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, I welcome the opportunity to double up …read more

21 Vegetarian Sweet Potato Recipes

By Erin Alderson It’s always hard to choose favorite produce during each season because I love experimenting with all the different flavors and textures. However, during the fall, sweet potatoes become the staple for a solid amount of meals. Sweet potatoes are affordable and can be turned into almost any type of meal or snack you might be craving.
I use sweet potatoes as filling for tacos/enchiladas, as salad mix-ins, in place of baked potatoes, and even pureed and added to morning porridges. It’s really hard to go wrong with sweet potatoes. I have over 80 sweet potato recipes on the site (but I’ve …read more

5 Cookbooks for People Who Always Need More Ideas for Dinner

By Carrie Havranek Dinner. It’s an inescapable occurrence, 365 days of the year.
Many of us have our go-to moves when all else fails — template meals that are easy and easily adaptable. Tacos. Egg scrambles. Pasta. Soup. And then there are the nights when it’s more about desperate calls for take-out. (It’s ok. You’re among friends. We understand.)
Yes, dinner. If we don’t plan it properly, it sneaks up on us at 4pm — or, yikes, later! — and we are faced with the perennial question: “What are we eating?”
Because we all get tired of the same-old same-old, I thought I’d share five favorite …read more

Rice Crispy Wings – No Breakfast Cereal was Harmed in the Making of this Video

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) As promised, here is the rice-flour coated chicken wings recipe I teased in the mumbo sauce video. It’s hard to believe that this is the first fried wings video we’ve ever done, but that was the case, which is why I’m so glad these turned out as well as they did. Besides being gluten-free, which is probably a big deal to a small, but enthusiastic part of my audience, this rice flour coating ended up being light, crispy, and extremely sauce friendly. The original buffalo style chicken wings are fried without any type of coating, and while I do …read more

Halloumi casserole with crispy garlic breadcrumbs

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche What do you get when you take one of the greatest ingredients known to man (squidgy, squeaky halloumi cheese), and combine it with heaps of veggies, a rich tomato sauce, and crispy garlic breadcrumbs? Halloumi casserole! I usually opt for beans for protein when I make a casserole, but halloumi is a great option for something a bit different. I’d never put it in a casserole before, but it worked so well!

In case you’re not too familiar with halloumi (where have you beeeeen?!), it’s unusual in that it doesn’t melt like most other cheeses – it holds its shape when …read more

Pumpkin Gingerbread

By Elise Bauer This pumpkin gingerbread is one of our favorite treats for fall!
We almost always have extra pumpkin sitting around this time of year, either puréed and in cans, or fresh. Two of my favorite sweet quick breads are pumpkin bread and gingerbread.
This recipe started as an experiment to combine the two. The result? A tender, richly flavored loaf—spicy, molasses-y, and pumpkin-y. Continue reading “Pumpkin Gingerbread” »

Mumbo Sauce – Is D.C.’s Secret Sauce the Next Big Thing?

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) A friend of mine asked me recently if I’d ever heard of mumbo sauce, since she had just returned from Washington D.C., and said it was “everywhere.” I hadn’t, which isn’t a surprise, since unless you’re from the Capital, or select neighborhoods in Chicago, this stuff is virtually unknown. Apparently, this sweet-and-sour condiment came to Washington D.C. via Chicago, where it somehow became a staple in Chinese take-out restaurants, served as a condiment with fried chicken wings, among other things. That’s as much background as you’re getting here, and like many other regional culinary specialties, the history is murky.All I …read more

Vegan Roast Vegetable, Pesto and Cream Cheese Pizza Recipe

By Jacqueline Meldrum I usually make my own pizza dough when I’m making a pizza from scratch, but I noticed my local supermarket have a fresh ready rolled pizza dough in their chilled section beside the pastry and decided to give it a go. Now I’m not saying I only ever make pizza from scratch, do any of us? Maybe if I was a stay at home mum. Nope, probably not even then. Each time I make pizza dough I think I should always make it fresh, but then reality kicks in.I mostly buy chilled or frozen pizza for quick midweek meals and …read more

Brown Rice Carrot Fritters with Chipotle Sunflower Sauce

By Erin Alderson There are a few meals meals on which my husband and I can always agree. One of the easiest decisions: fritters. There’s something wonderful about fritters. It might be the ability to make fritters out of almost anything or the fact that you can toss in herbs, grains, and cheese. I think it’s the fact that fritters are perfectly crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. These carrot fritters are a riff on these cheddar cauliflower cakes. We always have carrots on hand, making these fritters an easy dinner win!
Add the that, a creamy vegan sauce. I love …read more

Mumble Sauce

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) I just got home after some fairly painless oral surgery, and my troublesome wisdom tooth is now gone. That’s the good news. The bad news is my mouth is currently stuffed with cotton, and doing a voice-over for the just completed mumbo sauce probably isn’t a great idea. Hopefully, I’ll be able to rock the mic soon, but in the meantime, thank you for your patience, and please stay tuned! .

Pressure Cooker Saag Tofu

By Coco Morante A few weeks ago, I was digging into a meal of saag paneer at one of my favorite Indian restaurants (Zareen’s in Palo Alto!), when it occurred to me that the texture of the soft fresh paneer cheese in the dish was very similar to the texture of extra-firm tofu.
I decided there and then to come up with a vegan riff on this dish so that everyone can enjoy it, even if you’re eating dairy-free.

Pumpkin Chili

By Aaron Hutcherson Pumpkin and chili: two things we all crave every fall. This recipe combines them into one dish. It’s the best of both worlds!
The pumpkin provides some natural sweetness, which plays well with the different spices. If you aren’t able to find fresh pumpkin, then butternut squash, acorn squash, or any other hard squash would be good substitutes.Continue reading “Pumpkin Chili” »
