Grapefruit Bars with a Shortbread Crust

After getting out of a Pilates reformer class last week, I had a sudden odd craving for grapefruit juice, so I went to Trader Joes on my way home and got some. Needless to say, I had a couple glasses and then didn’t know what to do with the rest of the carton. Flash forward to yesterday evening when a friend invited me over to have dinner, and I was thinking of what to bring


Butternut Squash Soup

Continuing with my cooking from last week…we’re about 3/4 of the way done with January, and as I was looking at my in-season chart, I realized that there were a bunch of vegetables that I hadn’t touched yet.

Spicy Vegetable Fried Rice

This is a bonus recipe because I ended up cooking a ton last week since I wasn’t feeling well. So, I bought this frozen Panang curry dish from Trader Joe’s last week to eat on a night where I just did not feel like cooking.

Lemony baked cod with roasted potatoes and Brazilian kale

I’ve had lemony flavors on the mind for the past couple of days. I love the tanginess, the tartness, just the overall flavor that lemon can add. And as I was thinking, I remembered that lemon goes particularly well with seafood. I tend to prefer fish that doesn’t taste too fishy and since Pacific cod is in season, I thought I’d try a lemony baked cod recipe.

Spicy Mexican Sweet Potato Bake

Hey there! So after arriving in Chicago a couple of days ago, I’ve been trying to get used to how cold it is here and trying to get over the back-to-school blahs. The “Caution, watch out for falling ice signs” are out which means winter is definitely here, and classes and recruiting are in full swing.
