Roasted Portabella Mushroom Grilled Cheese

Roasted Portabella Mushroom Grilled Cheese

April is National Grilled Cheese Month. (Pausing for appropriate swooning … Don’t worry, I’ll wait. Okay, good now?) I don’t often get excited about food holidays but this is different. Grilled cheese is the thing that happy childhood memories are made of, right? When I bite into a gooey, melty grilled cheese, I can feel […]

Something happened this weekend. Perhaps it was the effect of our Saturday picnic on the beach (our first of the year!). Or maybe it was the marked uptick in temperatures that seems to be signalling that spring is really, truly, finally here. But this weekend, I suddenly felt so happy and at peace — more […]

Hello, my name is Sarah and I am addicted to overnight French toast. But I want you to know that I’ve made an important breakthrough in my overnight French toast addiction — I’ve stepped beyond the confines of my very favorite Overnight Creme Brulee French Toast. (Note to my family — don’t worry, I won’t stop […]

Sunday nights are usually a time for curling up with my favorite TV dramas (Maris and I love Revenge, and she tells me last night’s show was amazing). Sometimes, I dig into a little plate of crackers and cheese with a glass of wine while watching too. It’s an event, and one that often involves […]

When I saw these portabella mushrooms at a local grocery store, I swooned and my head filled with images of meaty roasted portabellas on a salad. Everything else I had imagined cooking vanished (I had really planned to stuff mushrooms with St. Patrick’s Day leftovers). I just wanted my warm portabellas and cool salad. We’re […]

Dear March, enough with the cold weather. I am so over it. Bring on the warmer temperatures, skin-kissing sun rays and afternoons in the backyard. Seriously, it’s time to let go of the near-freezing temperatures and tuck the bulky coats away once and for all. Please? Whether or not March complies with my request (and […]

There’s something about a warm, toasty, stuffed quesadilla that just says comfort. With all the melty cheese, the crisp outside and … well, whatever you stuff in it. It’s a definite favorite of mine. And I especially appreciate how simple, fast and easy quesadillas are — even when you get a little fancy with the […]

Once upon a time, I was a brooding teenage vegetarian who wrote way too much dark poetry. I wrote short stories too, but it was poetry that I would escape to when I needed to process whatever high school drama had me all twisty-turvy. And whilst being a brooding teenage vegetarian, my parents were sweet […]

When I was in high school, I started seriously reading cookbooks — trying to decipher how to cook. My obsession began with vegetarian ones (I was a vegetarian at the time). I collected them, paging through the recipes and imagining the day when I could figure out how to take those words and translate them […]

This Thai Red Curry Roasted Vegetables over Quinoa is one of my favorite dishes. Like ever. Actually, anything with Thai Red Curry Sauce falls into that designation. But making this? Well, it’s not for Shawn and I sort of had to hold my breath seeing if the kids would like it too. See, onions are […]
