Warming Vegan Vegetable Soup

Ah, yes, Fall is in the air. I don't know about you, but I come alive in Fall. With just a little bit of chill in the air, it's like I become Abby cranked up to 11. I have energy, excitement, and so many Chestnut Praline Lattes in my system. I could run a marathon, write, blog, and cook a four-course meal every single day. ...

Chicken Pot Pie Pasta Salad

If you've spoken to me within the past week, you've probably wondered if I had a terminal illness. Between the jitters, the huge bags under my eyes, and the minor tantrums I throw throughout the day, I'm sure most people think I'm either dying or pregnant. But really, I'm just getting married, and it's T minus three days ...

Simple Spinach Quiche

I'll admit one thing to you: When I was a kid, I thought it was pronounced "kweeech." Now that that confession's out of the way, I'll also admit that I didn't do any of the things I was supposed to this week. I had planned to spend my days off working on different rainy day staple meals, like stews, breads, sweet tarts, ...

Roast Chicken and Veggies For Two

Cooking for a small group is hard. Cooking for one is even harder. Most recipes are designed for families, and large ones, at that.

Peach Roasted Pork Shoulder

There are some days where you've just earned it. There are days where your joints are sore, and you've run yourself through the day mentally and physically. There are days where you've hiked a mountain, run a marathon, built a house, and kayaked a river all within an hour. Or, at least, it feels like you have. On those ...

Creamy Chicken Stuffed Peppers

I have a confession to make: I'm a chronic pepper-purchaser. Now, in the grand scheme of addiction, on a scale from biting your nails to meth, constantly buying too many peppers probably falls more toward the "biting your nails" side of things. It's not like anyone's getting hurt because of it, although it does habitually ...

Baked Salmon Meatballs

When I first began to cook, I'll admit that I was very intimated by seafood. Hell, I'll admit that I was intimidated by everything. Enchiladas scared the shit out of me, so there was no way I was going to fillet something as expensive and valuable as salmon. In fact, I ate almost entirely vegetarian for the first few months, ...
