A searchable list of all of my recipes

  • Curry Chicken Salad

    Creamy, fruity, just a little bit spicy—a fresh take on an old classic

  • Barbacoa

    Tender slow-cooked beef with lots of spices—great for tacos, tortas, or burritos.

  • Pickled Red Onions

    These easy pickled onions make a great condiment for tacos and sandwiches.

  • Guacamole

    Super simple guacamole with lots of garlic and lime juice. Make sure to use a mortar and pestle on this. It makes a huge difference.

  • Italian Beef

    This is a classic slow cooker dish that is cheap, easy to make, and delicous.

  • Pasta & Bean Soup

    This is just a mid-west version of pasta e fagioli (think Olive Garden). It's really fast to make and is hearty enough to be a meal on it's own.

  • Red Lentil Soup

    Red lentils and lots of spices make this a great soup for early fall. Also, it doesn't hurt that it's so dang simple to make.

  • Marinated Olives

    Whole Kalamata olives marinated simply in lemon juice and fresh chilies.

  • Moroccan Spiced Meatballs

    A simple meatball recipe made with a North African blend of spices and fresh mint

  • Tomato and Garlic Frittata

    I make a lot of frittatas for some reason. They sound really fancy, but are in fact, quite easy to make. It's a great way to use up a bunch of ingredients.

  • Roasted Potatoes

    This makes a quick side dish of simple roasted new potatoes with olive oil and parsley. Parboiling the potatoes first really makes the whole thing, so don't skip this step.

  • Chili

    This is my favorite chili recipe. I like to experiment with different types of beans and I always add a bottle of good, strong American IPA for a great flavor.

  • Asian Pork Tacos

    Korean fusion style tacos with marinated pork loin, fresh cucumber, and cilantro.

  • Roasted Tomatoes and Zucchini

    Simple roasted, charred vegetables with fresh mint.

  • Pisto

    The Spanish version of ratatouille—this dish is simple and delicious. It's a classic in our house.

  • Pozole Rojo

    A traditional Mexican soup with pork and hominy. This is an adaptation of another recipe I found. The original can be found here.

  • Basic Marinara

    This is a ridiculously easy recipe that the basis of my go weeknight dinners. I haven't bought pasta sauce in a jar since I mastered this one.

  • Saffron Rice

    This is a simple, and a little bit fancy side dish that goes great with a piece of grilled meat, or fish. It's a riff on risotto, but is way less labor-intensive.
