Sweet Potato Barley Stew

By erin Post sponsored by Crock-Pot® Brand/Mirum Shopper. See below for more details.
While I hate the idea of ‘resolutions’, the start of the new year is a good time to start change, no matter how small. This change can come with cooking at least one dinner a week, adding more vegetables to your meals, or experimenting with ingredients you may have never tried. This barley stew can knock out (potentially) all three. It’s easy to prep, just a bit of chopping, then everything goes into the Crock-pot® slow cooker. Start it in the morning on low and by dinner you have a …read more

Sesame Brussels Sprout Soba Bowl

By erin In our house, my husband eats all the grains I prepare without complaint even though they are not his favorite. In particular, he isn’t a big rice fan. Noodle bowls are my bowl compromise. Sure, noodles aren’t as nutritious as grains but they still allow me to load the bowl up with lots of vegetables and flavors. It’s a perfect way for us to meet in the middle. This soba bowl recipe is great this time of year. It’s simple enough on ingredients but makes for the perfect lunch or light dinner.

2016’s Top 10 Most Popular Instagram Posts

By Riz This post is a little different from my usual – It’s round-up of my most popular Instagram posts! By the way, did I mention I have an Instagram? I do, it’s @yamisohungry – no, not Yami So Hungry… ‘Y’ (like, why) Am I So Hungry. Got it? Good. Now we can move on to the good stuff!

I’ve been on Instagram for a while now, but I only properly connected it to Chocolates & Chai earlier in 2016. Prior to that it was just a personal account with me randomly posting things (still, mainly food!). What’s changed? Well…not very much actually. …read more

“New Year’s Baby” Porchetta – Here’s to Being Happy, But Not Satisfied in 2017!

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) Since I’m not really working, I’ll keep this “baby porchetta” post short and sweet, and simply let you refer to the video for all the important stuff. Like how amazing this tasted; and how impossibly moist and tender it was. Notwithstanding some overlapped bacon (which I’ll do in a single layer, in maybe a hotter oven next time), I loved how this came out! I’m not sure if it will bring you prosperity in the New Year, but this is so good, who cares? I want to wish you all a very healthy, and bountiful, 2017! Happy New Year, …read more

Sesame Delicata Squash Kale Salad

By erin
It’s easy to overwhelm yourself with sweets and rich foods during the winter months, especially during the holiday season. And so, I like to offer a few solid lunch options that can help bring balance. I don’t eat a lot of kale salads but with the sesame delicata squash and the spicy dressing, it lends a nice texture to the overall salad. Of course, if you don’t want to use kale, spinach or baby lettuce would also be great. and see the recipe.The post Sesame Delicata Squash Kale Salad appeared first on Naturally Ella. …read more

Roasted Broccoli Salad with Feta, Barley, and Pomegranate

By Sally Vargas Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean we have to abandon salads! We just have to rethink how we make them.
Dark greens, roasted vegetables, and citrus fruits of all colors and stripes are the real players in January and February. They make salads that are both hearty and flavorful.
Enter sweet, roasted broccoli. What it lacks in beauty it overcompensates for in flavor. This simple salad, served warm, makes a perfect post-holiday meal.

Pressure Cooker Ground Beef Chili

By Coco Morante A warm bowl of chili is such a comforting meal on cold nights. Beef chili usually takes at least an hour and a half to simmer on the stove, but you can cut that time down by half when you use a pressure cooker!
Electric pressure cookers are having a renaissance these days. The newest models are programmable smart appliances that are very safe and very easy to use. They’re completely different than traditional stovetop models many of us grew up with.
Find out just how great pressure cooking can be with this super-quick chili recipe!

Swedish Coffee Bread (Tea Ring)

By Elise Bauer A Simply Recipes reader recently informed me that Swedish coffee bread is a Christmas tradition in Sweden, along with Swedish meatballs and other goodies served on Christmas Eve.
According to Sara Sabo, “it is a lot of work but the Swedish tomte that lives under the floorboards helps, and you better do your part or the Jul goat will butt you. This is the day all distant relatives and many friends decide they want to be Swedish.” Continue reading “Swedish Coffee Bread (Tea Ring)” »

Roasted Broccoli Pasta with Roasted Garlic Goat Cheese Sauce

By erin As I start to balance our evening meals between what we would normally eat, versus what I should feed a toddler, I’ve started to find an intersection. This roasted broccoli pasta is one of those landing spots (minus the nuts for him). You may look at me crazy about my toddler eating goat cheese (he does) but I love that I can easily minimize the salt in this recipe but still have good flavor, thanks to the roasted garlic. I roast a head of garlic weekly and store it in a bit of olive oil to use throughout the week. …read more

Coconut White Russian (Vegan)

By Garrett McCord Fun fact: The White Russian isn’t Russian at all, but rather an American invention!
The cocktail first appeared in The Savoy Cocktail Book, by Harry Craddock back in 1930, and it consisted of gin, vodka, and crème de cacao. At the time, vodka was an almost exclusively Russian export, hence the name.
Easy to make, the cocktail quickly became a popular. Over time, it evolved into the present day drink of vodka, coffee liqueur, and cream – or in our case, coconut!

2016: A Year In Review

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche 2016 has definitely been a rollercoaster of a year. It’s not been a great one for the world as a whole, but for me personally, it’s been pretty successful.

Prime Rib

By Elise Bauer Prime rib claims center stage during holiday season for a very good reason. It is the king of beef cuts.
It’s called a standing rib roast because to cook it, you position the roast majestically on its rib bones in the roasting pan.
Beautifully marbled with fat, this roast is rich, juicy, and tender—a feast for the eyes and the belly. Continue reading “Prime Rib” »
