25 Vegetarian Root Vegetable Recipes

By Erin Alderson I didn’t eat many root vegetables as a child. Sure, there was the occasional dip tray that had carrots but that was about as close to a root as I got. To be honest, I don’t really remember the grocery store stocking roots outside of beets and carrots. However, I’ve come a long way (and so has the grocery store) and now it’s my turn to inspire you to eat your roots. Grab those parsnips and don’t shy away from celeriac. Each root has a unique flavor and they all work well in cold weather comfort food.

Bigos (Polish Hunter’s Stew) – Go Bigos or Go Home

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) I don’t often get requests for Polish food, but when I do, they’re usually for bigos. Which makes perfect sense, since this meaty stew is one of the most delicious dishes you’ll ever taste. It’s also low-carb, highly nutritious, and very simple to make, as long as you don’t consider having to wait a day to eat it, “complicated.” While you can eat this as soon as it’s made, and I bet most of you do, it’s much better the next day, as all the flavors have time to properly meld together. You can also really customize this to your …read more

Roasted Winter Squash with Cilantro Chimichurri

By Garrett McCord We’ve all had those shocking epiphanies where suddenly you realize that somehow, someway, you’ve become an adult.
Maybe it was when you found yourself agreeing with Ariel’s dad in The Little Mermaid. (“Young lady, you don’t love that boy. You don’t even know him!”) Or perhaps it was when you realized you actually wanted socks for your birthday because that meant you wouldn’t have to spend your own money on them.
For me, it was when I first used the thermostat after getting my first real job after college. Before, I was simply wearing a lot of sweaters and ensuring that whatever …read more

A Chic Chocolate Extravaganza

By Caroline Field A-C came into the office the other day with a face of deep disappointment. My spirits rose. Trust me, I know this sounds insane, but this particular expression is oftentimes accompanied by words along the lines of “I’m really sorry darling but…” and then what follows is something I’m going to really like!

This was no exception because her words were “it’s that time of year when Hotel Chocolat are enquiring whether you’d like to review one of their subscription boxes – well, someone has to…”
Simultaneously, A-C produced The Contenders Classic Box from behind her back!

We have now all got used …read more

Homemade Pumpkin Spice

By Irvin Learn how to make your own homemade pumpkin spice and customize it with some additional spices to make it your own. This recipe is nothing close to basic! (Jump directly to the recipe.)

I refuse to be THAT GUY that poo-poo’s other people’s obsessions. I was that guy in high school, the disaffected GenX guy that mocked everyone’s taste in music. I listened to alternative rock, trying to be cool with my New Order and my Cocteau Twins while everyone else was listening to Tiffany and Debbie Gibson. But let’s face it. I secretly kind of loved Debbie and Tiffany as …read more

Whole Roasted Tikka Masala Cauliflower

By Erin Alderson I am a bit surprised that it has taken me this long to share a whole-roasted cauliflower recipe but I was waiting for the perfect version. Turns out, the perfect version existed with a little help from one of my favorite recipes on the site: tikka masala lentils. This paste is a vegan recipe’s best friend. It’s full of flavor, mixes well as a sauce or marinade, and freezes well (I always make a triple batch!)
This tikka masala cauliflower is perfect for dinner, either for a family or as a holiday addition. I would recommend serving this with a chickpea …read more

No churn pumpkin pie ice cream

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche I’ve shared one of my homemade no churn ice cream recipes here before – banoffee flavour – but this time I thought I’d share something a bit more seasonal, in the form of this no churn pumpkin pie ice cream (because what’s the point of it being October if I’m not going to share at least one pumpkin recipe?).

These no churn ice cream recipes honestly couldn’t be easier. I always used to think that to make homemade ice cream, you either needed an ice cream machine (expensive, bulky, probably won’t be used very often), or you needed to stir your …read more

It’s true that I am the main cook in our household – it’s not that my husband doesn’t like to cook, but I’m a more than a little protective of my kitchen, and he is extremely messy! But, whereas I don’t always share the kitchen area with my culinary challenged spouse, one thing we do share is the love of good quality kitchen implements, tools and appliances.

Zombie Meatloaf – Better Than Brains

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) After seeing various versions of this Halloween-themed, zombie meatloaf on social media over the years, I decided it was time to post my very own. I’ve seen many approaches to this; such as covered in “blood,” or mummified in strips of pastry, but the ones wrapped in bacon always looked the most realistic, and the most appetizing. Ironically, “appetizing” is the last thing you want this to look like, but if we’re going to do some kind of gimmicky, holiday recipe, it might as well taste great, and this most certainly did. It’s been a while since I posted a …read more

Broccoli Frittata Grilled Cheese Sandwich

By Erin Alderson Leftovers seem to be a constant battle in our house. I could easily eat the same thing for multiple days in a row but my husband isn’t so keen on that. This leaves me constantly trying to reinvent leftovers (or just cook smaller batches- it’s the reason almost every photo I post only has one or two bowls in the set-up.)
This broccoli frittata sandwich is a go-to in our house, primarily because whenever I make a frittata, there’s at least one slice leftover. Sure, you can reheat a frittata but why do that when you can smash it in a …read more
