Dried Apricot Soup with Emmer

By erin Cooking brings us together via recipes passed down through generations and different cultures. The act of cooking and sharing a meal can unite us, even in a virtual sense. That is, essentially, why this site exists. It’s a way to learn and understand through something we do every day. I’ve been struggling to stay connected to this space without bringing in current events because cooking, to me, is a way to bring everyone together, even during a time of division. To ignore politics in the realm of food feels too surface, too insincere.
The United States is a country continually shaped …read more

How To Steam-Fry Vegetables

By Coco Morante Need a quick side dish of vegetables to go with your meal? Try steam-frying them!
Using this method, you quickly stir-fry vegetables to develop some color, and then steam them until tender. Steam-frying uses less oil than a regular stir-fry, but the vegetables still quickly cook through.
The veggies also pick up a little browning from the stir-fry step and some flavor from the liquid used for the steaming step, making them more exciting than plain steamed vegetables.
You can use this technique to cook just about any vegetable in the fridge, from cauliflower to green beans.

Oaty galaxy cookies

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’ll know that I’m not much of a baker. I’ve definitely improved in the past year or so, and I’ve shared a few of my baking triumphs recently, but it still doesn’t come nearly as naturally to me as cooking does. So, when Quaker oats asked if I’d like to recreate their recipe for these oaty galaxy cookies, I was a little nervous. That utterly gorgeous galaxy-inspired swirl on top seemed like the sort of thing that could end up looking absolutely amazing – or it could look like a complete …read more

Twice Baked Spaghetti Squash with Spelt

By erin I was slow to warm up to spaghetti squash. I had fallen in love with the smooth texture of acorn and butternut squash. Spaghetti squash was different and highly unappealing. However, my thoughts have changed and I now like to use the unique texture to my advantage. This twice baked spaghetti squash is a little on the time consuming side of cooking but it’s a great alternative when you’re not feeling mac and cheese. Cook the spelt and squash ahead of time, this will greatly speed up dinner! and see the recipe.The post Twice Baked Spaghetti Squash with Spelt …read more

Sloppy Dip – G.I. Joe (Generally Inspired-By)

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) Don’t let the catchy name fool you; this sloppy Joe-inspired dip really shouldn’t cause that big a mess at your Super Bowl party, just as long as your guests aren’t too sloppy themselves. You can test them by having them pronounce, “sloppy dip.” If they say it more like, “shloppy dip,” cut them off. For me this checks all the boxes for a hot party dip. It’s relatively cheap, and easy to make, but maybe more importantly, it’s great hot, warm, or room temp. It’s also incredibly versatile, and I can think of about two-dozen things off the top …read more
