Panzanella Salad

Panzanella Salad

Summer at the Farmer’s Market is my favorite time of year. The produce is plentiful, the colors are vibrant, and the flavors are at their peak. Besides early season pickling cucumbers, tomato season is my most anticipated. I religiously taste the tomato samples put out by each vendor, waiting to find the one with tomatoesContinue Reading

Cook Once, Eat Twice: Vietnamese Noodle Bowls (Part 2)

Cook Once, Eat Twice: Vietnamese Noodle Bowls (Part 2)

Six pounds of pork shoulder yields a lot of lemongrass pork. Luckily, it’s easy to transform the pork into a delicious noodle bowl with Vietnamese inspired ingredients. It also doubled as a pantry clean out recipe since I was able to get Asian noodles and carrots out of the fridge as well as some peanutsContinue Reading

Cook Once, Eat Twice: Lemongrass Pork (Part 1)

Cook Once, Eat Twice: Lemongrass Pork (Part 1)

The one item I most dreaded having to come up with a use for during the pantry clean-out challenge was the giant six pound pork butt hanging out in my freezer. I bought it last time pork butt was on sale in hopes of eventually using it for my slow cooker pulled pork, but consideringContinue Reading

Asian Inspired Edamame Salad

Asian Inspired Edamame Salad

Yesterday, I promised another pantry clean-out inspired salad. I’m not one to disappoint. I love the contrast of the nutty crunch of the ramen noodles and the sweet tang of the mango. The edamame packs it with protein so this salad is definitely filling. On hand, I had everything except for the fresh vegetables, soContinue Reading

Fiesta Chickpea Salad

Fiesta Chickpea Salad

I am once again joining Good Cheap Eats for a pantry clean-out challenge. The purpose of the challenge is to use up your stockpile of freezer and pantry items. For M and I, it’s not practical to think we can live only off what we have in the freezer and in the pantry — weContinue Reading

Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

You might experience a bit of déjà vu reading this post. It’s remarkably similar to this recipe, but, for some reason, so much more deliciouser. (That’s a word, I checked.) It is inspired by a recipe on Damn Delicious, which lives up to its name, since the food was, well, damn delicious. Now, of courseContinue Reading

Lemon Spinach Pasta

Lemon Spinach Pasta

This recipe originally came from my Mom. Whether she found it or made it up, I’m not sure. I first made it last Summer and M and I were both kind of “Eh” on it. I decided to give it another try, making some tweaks to suit our taste buds, and man was it good.Continue Reading

Taco Tuesday Tostadas

Taco Tuesday Tostadas

“Taco Tuesday” has become a regular occurrence in our house, although it usually doesn’t happen on Tuesday and my interpretation of “tacos” is pretty loose. We’ve made Turkey Lettuce Tacos, Chicken Fajitas, Enchilada Casserole, and Beef Enchiladas all as a part of “Taco Tuesday.” I really need another day that starts with the letter MContinue Reading

Teriyaki Chicken & Zucchini Skewers

Teriyaki Chicken & Zucchini Skewers

Having a well stocked pantry definitely helped me out last week. With all of our social events, I had no spare time to get to the grocery store but I still had three nights of dinner to cook. Enter: The pantry. I had a few leftover peppers in the fridge from making chicken fajitas forContinue Reading

Mediterranean Dump Salad

Mediterranean Dump Salad

It started with an overwhelming number of cans and jars in the fridge. And a chickpea craving. Things are getting crazy in these parts, people. One jar had some marinated artichoke hearts and another had sun dried tomatoes (probably leftover from this recipe). There was also a jar of capers, some roasted red peppers (fromContinue Reading
