Veggie Stuffed Shells

This recipe is my ideal stuffed shell scenario: filled with spinach, mushrooms, garlic, and herby goat cheese, and slathered in a thick savory tomato sauce. It’s satisfying, exciting, and is definitely more nutrient dense than old school stuffed shells.

Roasted Vegetable Israeli Couscous Salad

People who don’t like salad are just misinformed, as a salad can be so many things. This recipe is a far cry from your typical side salad of lettuce and store-bought dressing. The combination of warm roasted veggies and crunchy raw greens tossed with Israeli couscous makes this dish a lighter take on pasta and... Read More

Butternut Squash and Herby Goat Cheese Galette

This galette is delicious right out of the oven but just as good at room temperature. It’s unfussy enough to make on a weeknight but definitely holds its own at the Thanksgiving table.

And don’t forget to save your pasta water! This is the velvety, punchy, delicious sauce your spaghetti—and squid!—always dreamed... Read More

Cherry Shortcake with Cardamom Cream

So why not switch it up? This recipe uses sweet black cherries because that’s... Read More

Toast is versatile, comforting, and it makes everyone happy no matter the occasion. This one is a beautiful cross between a European... Read More

Head-on Shrimp in Garlicky Tomato Sauce

Head-on shrimp is a show stopper – a dish that seems to be reserved primarily for restaurant dining, and I’m not sure why that is. Cooking whole shrimp is super easy and eating them is way more fun than eating the peeled ones. Most importantly, cooking shrimp in their whole shell allows them to retain... Read More
