Thomas Deluxe Grill. Driving up to this 24/7 diner on Peachtree Street, you might …

Chicken Piccata

Chicken Piccata

If there’s one thing that I find myself cooking a lot of, it’s chicken. And chicken piccata was a new upgrade for chicken on our menu. Combined with chicken stock, lemon juice, and capers, this dish has that unique balance of ingredients. A bit of tartness from the lemon, some saltiness from the capers… just delish. Now, …

Chicken Posole

Chicken Posole

I’m always on the lookout for quick and easy recipes that will appeal not only to my husband and myself, but most importantly, to my two boys. I think my husband is a little weirded out by hominy, corn that’s processed to remove the hull and the germ. But the boys and I enjoy it. …

Smooth and Creamy Soaked Vanilla Maple Almond Butter (Vegan)

Overhead view of a food process full of soaked vanilla maple almond butter on a dark wooden background.

Beyond the digestive benefits of this almond butter, it’s also delicious, as in, the most delicious almond butter I’ve ever had. Nutty and salty while also sweet, kissed by vanilla and maple syrup, it’s as good on raw celery as it is eaten on its own, by the spoonful. Get the recipe now!

Einkorn Cream Puffs

Einkorn Cream Puffs

I read somewhere this weekend that stepping into grief is a lot like stepping into a dark room. The door shuts behind you and you panic because you can’t see, your arms go flailing all about, you’re lost and alone and unsure. It’s scary and it’s lonely and you aren’t sure what to do, but …

Creamy Red Roasted Beet Soup

Creamy Red Roasted Beet Soup in a stoneware bowl.

The first time I subscribed to a CSA, back in Chicago years ago, was the first time I was exposed to beets, and, genuinely, I had no idea what to do with them. First, I learned how to roast them. Then I learned how to like them—in salads, as greens sauteéd or mixed into a hash, …
