I have a self-admitted problem of sidelining greens. I’ll eat them every day but rarely are they the key to the recipe. Sure, most salads wouldn’t be salads without the greens. Yet, it’s rarely about them. I labeled this carrot curry but in reality, the kale is the core. The carrots are pureed into a creamy curry sauce that cooks the kale. It’s ultimate vegetarian comfort food. The paneer is also just a bonus. I’ve been into easy cheese making as of late and paneer is a good place to start. You can always leave it off or replace it with tofu.
I’m going to revisit one of my favorite cookie recipes today. Made using 100% whole wheat flour and hand-chopped chocolate chips, this is a skillet-baked twist on Kim Boyce’s celebrated chocolate chip cookies. It’s also a fantastic recipe to make with kids. We had a house guest this weekend, and this was the recipe he wanted to make. Instead of shaping individual cookies, you spread cookie dough across an oven-proof pan or skillet, and bake it. You can cut the finished cookies into wedges or squares, or whatever shape you like. You can also bake individual versions in tiny skillets or these tiny cast-iron Staubs. Served warm with a little dollop of vanilla ice cream – you get the idea. They’re fun, fast, and couldn’t be simpler. You can see how it all comes together, and meet my favorite kitchen helper, in the video below 😉 Enjoy!

One of the things I love about this site is that it has served as documentation of my life through food. Sometimes, it’s directly in the writing about the recipe. Other times, it’s less noticeable through an overall trend. For example, I can’t remember the last time I posted a recipe that takes longer than an hour. I love sharing quick and easy but sometimes a meal is well worth the time. Yet, after having a child, time has become a precious commodity in rare supply.
However, as Mack turns two, I’m starting to find my rhythm. I’m finding ways to be more mindful of my time. Making gnocchi has always been a therapeutic process. This spelt gnocchi requires time but the end result is worth it. There are shortcuts to this meal (like using regular pasta) but if you have the time, make this recipe in it’s entirety. Also, if you can grind your own spelt flour, you should. The flavor from freshly ground spelt in these gnocchi push it over the top. Read more and see the recipe.
When it comes to morning porridge, I tend to stick with oatmeal (it’s the easiest to satisfy even the littlest member of the family). However, if I’m just cooking breakfast for myself, I make a cracked grain porridge. Running a grain in a coffee grinder or blender for a few pulses creates a mixture that will become lush without even trying. This creamy millet porridge has long been a favorite. Add your favorite toppings including fruit, nuts, and seeds then you’ve got a filling, nutrient dense breakfast. Read more and see the recipe.
