quinoa with chestnuts and cherries

This warm quinoa with chestnuts and cherries is chock full of them fall flavors, yo! To be perfectly honest, I’ve had this bag (affiliate link) of Geffen “recipe ready” peeled chestnuts in my pantry for over six months.

Bok Choy salad with apples

In this bok choy salad with apples, you get two kinds of crisp juiciness combined with celery, raisins (or craisins) and cashews in a light, lemony dressing. It’s like a Waldorf salad but grown all the way up. We’ve been getting a LOT of bok choy in our CSA boxes and it’s one vegetable I…

But then I told him vanilla chips do not exist (although white chocolate chips are kind of like vanilla chips, but white chocolate chips are terrible in my…

baked tostadas with refried beans and cabbage

I made tostadas the other day and felt super-duper accomplished. They’re easy, though. Very simple, really. Just goes to show you what “accomplished” has come to mean around our house, because it damn sure don’t mean getting any kind of work done. But, feeding yourself and your family is work so I pat myself on…
