You know what’s a great phrase for a satisfying meal? Sticks to your ribs. Sure, it’s kind of goofy. At first, it sounds like the food is supposed to stick to your ribs from the outside, as if you were wearing a vest made out of pancakes or something. But once you realize it’s sticking to your ribs from the inside, then it just really captures the whole idea of a meal that will keep you… read more

  Potatoes are the workhorse of the kitchen. Seriously, they can do anything. They’re cheap. They’re filling. They’re nutritious. Did you know one baked potato has just 150 calories, no fat, four grams of fiber, and as much vitamin C as a glass of orange juice? I really think potatoes should qualify as a superfood. Or at least a superfood’s sidekick. But the really wonderful thing about potatoes is that they are so versatile. You… read more

As you all know, I think eggs are a real superfood. They’re packed with nutrition, and incredibly versatile. You can cook them dozens of ways: fried, scrambled, boiled, poached… Well, actually, maybe not poached. Don’t get me wrong, they’re delicious that way, but it can be a bit tricky getting them to come out just right. It’s like a complicated magic act, where you have to transfer the egg from the shell to the cup… read more

All summer long, I’ve been focusing on recipes that don’t heat up the kitchen. You know, stuff that can be cooked quickly on the stove, or else in my ever-handy crockpot. But now that there’s a bit of a nip in the air, heating up the kitchen is actually a good thing. Which means it’s time to fire up the oven and roast me some veggies. Roasting is one of my favorite ways to cook… read more

There’s no doubt about it…fall is in the air. The trees are putting on their annual show, all dressed up in red and yellow. The nights are growing longer, and there’s a distinct nip in the air by the time everyone comes in for supper. Which means, of course, that it’s a perfect time for chili. Isn’t it funny how something so warm and cozy is pronounced just like “chilly”? On the other hand, maybe that… read more

  So it turns out, I wasn’t just bragging when I called my beef stew “The Best Crockpot Beef Stew.” People really, really like it, and the recipe has been getting lots of attention. So I figured, why not take that recipe and put a little twist on it? Swapping out the stew meat for frozen meatballs makes this recipe even easier, because there’s less prep involved. All you have to do now is chop… read more

Let’s face it. Kids love stuff that’s gross. Bathroom humor? Hilarious. Goosebumps books? Best-sellers. Ghost stories involving severed limbs? Top-notch entertainment. So of course, Halloween is every kid’s favorite holiday. You get to overload on sugar AND decorate the house with decaying corpses. What could possibly be better? This Halloween goodie bag idea combines the two best parts of the holiday: lots of candy, and gross, creepy stuff. They’re…get ready…candy-filled severed hands. What kid wouldn’t love… read more

  So here’s something that will come as no shock to anyone: I love food. Because I love food, I hate to waste it. That’s why I try to come up with creative ways to use up leftovers from a big meal, like Thanksgiving dinner or St. Paddy’s Day corned beef and cabbage.   But what about foods that you can’t turn into other foods, like casseroles? Or what if you find a great deal… read more

Bananas are great when they’re nice and firm and yellow. You can put them in a fruit salad…top your French toast…whip them up in a smoothie…or just peel them and eat them all by themselves. But I actually like bananas even better when they start to get a little mushy and brown. Because that means it’s time to make banana bread. And this banana bread recipe has a little twist—or to be more exact, a… read more

This post has been brought to you by Daily Chef Casa Di Bertacchi.  It’s football season, baby! Baseball may be America’s Pastime, but football is America’s obsession. From now until the Super Bowl, we’re either watching The Game, or talking about the last one, or thinking about the next one. Maybe we love it so much because it’s such a social activity.

Post sponsored by Lunchbox. Opinions are 100% my own Remember Popsicles? Those jewel-bright, icy treats that were at the heart of every summer afternoon. Fighting with your sister over who got the last cherry one. Sucking them down to little, icy points that crumbled between your teeth. Sticking out your tongue to show off its new bright purple color. Saving the sticks to build little houses and rafts. They looked like miniature light sabers, and… read more

I was compensated for this post. All thoughts are 100% my own.  You see a lot of stories these days about “superfoods” like kale or açai berries that are supposed to be loaded with nutrients and basically magical. Well, I don’t know about that, but I can tell you what’s my idea of a real superfood: eggs. I mean, think about it. They’re cheap, they’re tasty, they’re filled with protein. Eggs are a nutritional powerhouse,… read more
