Blackened Salmon and Spinach Ravioli Bake

Blackened Salmon and Spinach Ravioli Bake

Last week I found myself searching for a side dish recipe to accompany the salmon I had planned for dinner that night. Blackened Salmon Actually, let me pause and tell you more about the salmon cooking method that is such a staple in my kitchen. Typically I purchase frozen wild Alaska salmon filets for this … Continue reading

Mexican Cornbread Casserole

Mexican Cornbread Casserole

It’s been far too long since I’ve shared a new recipe on the blog! Twelve whole days, actually, with my “Honey-Chipotle Turkey Meatballs and Roasted Chickpeas” post being my last shared recipe. But don’t worry – I have been cooking, and here’s the evidence. I’m a sucker for any dish involving cornbread. This casserole has … Continue reading

\aut\ BAR and Kip Barry’s

Happy Saturday! It’s a little weird out there today. The grass is as neon green as ever, the sun keeps peeking out from behind the Simpson’s-esque clouds, and there are patches of snow on the ground (which, incidentally, are quickly melting). Last night, I had evening plans for a show on Braun Court, so it … Continue reading

‘Twas a Rainy Day in Ann Arbor

‘Twas a Rainy Day in Ann Arbor

‘Twas a rainy day in Ann Arbor today. A perfect day for nabbing a window seat a Black Pearl and taking advantage of the happy hour food and drink specials, with Five Star SexiMexy. The best fish tacos in Ann Arbor are to be had at Black Pearl. I love the chipotle mayo. Colossal Coconut … Continue reading

Honey-Chipotle Turkey Meatballs and Roasted Chickpeas

Honey-Chipotle Turkey Meatballs and Roasted Chickpeas

I love a dinner made of whole foods! I tried roasting chickpeas for the first time last week, using Not A Leaf’s recipe and method, involving seasoning with brown sugar and lots of garam masala. They turned out great! Smoky, spicy, and sweet, as promised. Also for dinner, I made Martha Stewart’s Honey-Chipotle Turkey Meatballs, … Continue reading
