Roasted Broccoli

2013-07-01 18.59.12

This is adapted from a Simply Recipes recipe.

I love broccoli, and this is my favorite way to prepare it. It’s lemony, a little spicy, and a little crispy. This is meant to be a side dish, but sometimes I eat a whole batch for dinner. Yes, more than a pound of broccoli for dinner. Yes, I’m a little odd. But you should try it!

Fettuccine Alfredo with Spinach

2013-07-02 14.44.00

This is adapted from Emeril Lagasse‘s recipe.

Sometimes when the green arrow’s got you down, you crave comfort food. Sometimes you have leftover heavy cream in your fridge from making ice cream. Sometimes you feel a little scandalized by the ingredients in this dish so you add spinach.

Zucchini Fritters

2013-07-02 20.33.29

This is a Smitten Kitchen recipe.

I never know what to do with zucchini. Sometimes I grill it with peppers, onions, and tomatoes. Sometimes I make my mom’s zucchini bread. But until I tried these fritters, I hadn’t bought zucchini to highlight as an ingredient. So if you have some zucchini sitting neglected at the bottom of your CSA box, give these a fry.

Eat Live Run’s My Favorite Salad

2013-06-26 19.47.52 - Copy

This is an Eat Live Run recipe.

This is an easy, weekday kind of salad. It’s very filling and a perfect post-workout meal. You know, if you have time to work out (its not on my Barbri interactive paced program so working out won’t get me any closer to that green arrow).

Stovetop Popcorn


I can’t believe I’m really presenting this as a “recipe.”

There are three ways I could pitch this.

First, I could emphasize that there are only three ingredients, which is far fewer than in microwave popcorn. But fewer ingredients doesn’t necessarily mean its any healthier.

Second, I could emphasize that this recipe is so simple that a monkey could follow it, assuming that a monkey knows enough about stovetop safety. But let’s be honest, sticking a bag the right side down in the microwave is obviously easier than this method.

Third, I could emphasize how cheap this recipe is. Microwave popcorn is surprisingly expensive. However, unless you eat a lot of popcorn, the difference only amounts to a few dollars.

Instead I will just say that this is how I make popcorn and I like it, so you should try it.

Peppers and Onions



This is a loose recipe that is useful for fajitas, to eat with rice and beans, to put on salads, or to add to a sandwich. It’s great for cleaning out your fridge and using up half an onion that you have left over from some other recipe.

French Vanilla Ice Cream


This is a Martha Stewart recipe.

My friend Celina got me an ice cream maker for my 25th birthday. Best Present Ever! Now I finally get to start making the ice cream recipes I’ve been pinning.

I thought about breaking in the new machine with this s’mores ice cream, but I ultimately decided to start with the less ambitious and more classic vanilla. I, of course, turned to Martha for the definitive recipe. I’ve eaten an embarrassing amount of this today, including a spoonful stolen right out of the machine. Worth it!
