Perfect Sunny-Side-Up Eggs

sunny-side-up egg

Typically the post after a New Food Friday would use the new food in a recipe, but today we’re talking sunny-side-up eggs. No condiments, nothing fancy. I’m building up to something here. Be patient. 🙂 I decided to create this post after a conversation about cooking eggs at a holiday party. I realized that I […]

Fennel-Cabbage Salad with Orange Vinaigrette

Fennel Cabbage Salad

This simple salad uses some winter staples including orange, cabbage and Friday’s new food, fennel. While winter may not exactly scream “salad time!”, this one makes the short days a little less bleak. It’s tangy, peppery, and satisfyingly crisp and fresh, the perfect antidote for those times when I simply cannot eat another roasted root […]

New Food Friday: Fennel

This root vegetable looks like an albino carrot, but has a sweeter, more interesting taste and a sweet potato-esque texture when cooked. New Food Friday: Parsnips What it is: A root vegetable resembling a carrot but with pale white flesh. […]

Guess what? That’s right, New Food Friday is back! Now that CSA deliveries are done for the season and we’re past the Thanksgiving holiday, I’m bringing back this series of new, unusual, different and weird foods. First up? Papaya! I know I’ve had papaya before in canned fruit mixes, but I never had it fresh until […]

Cinnamon-Apple Overnight Oats

So, I have a lot of oat recipes on the blog. I eat oatmeal in some form almost every single day, even on the weekends. If I’m not eating oatmeal, it’s because I’m traveling or because I’m going out for breakfast/brunch…which doesn’t happen all that often. And that’s ok. It’s comforting to know that whatever […]
