Spinach & Artichoke Avocado Dip

Spinach Artichoke Avocado Dip

I’m really excited to share this recipe for spinach & artichoke dip. First of all it’s delicious, and definitely scratches the itch for a cheese-y, gooey, salty snack. Secondly, it’s only got three ounces of cheese, which means it’s mostly vegetables, which means it’s basically a salad, right? Well, ok, maybe not. But it does […]

Black Bean and Sweet Potato Stew

Leek and Fennel Risotto with Roasted Mushrooms

Fennel Leek Risotto

I love risotto because it’s one of the dishes I can cook without a recipe. It stands up to many different kinds of alterations and mix-ins, and will probably turn out fine as long as you have the right ratio of rice to liquid in mind (and even that, you can fudge a bit and […]

Easy Bibimbap Bowls

This easy bibimbap bowl recipe builds on the past two posts, using gochujang and leveraging my sunny-side-up egg technique. The first time I had bibimbap was on a trip to Pittsburgh to celebrate our first anniversary. Although it was May, the weather was on the cold side and a bit rainy. We’d planned to spend the […]
