Now what in the heck was I supposed to call these things, you guys? They are the most random twist on one of my all-time favorite sandwiches and this name was all that my tired, pregnant brain could come up with. If you can come up with a better one, please do share.
Now heres the deal. If you love a good reuben sandwich and you love cabbage you might go wack-a-doodle over this combination. It’s a reuben gone healthful and light…but you won’t for one second miss that bread and cheese, I promise. Continue reading
So really, dinners have been about as quick and effortless as ever around here for the last few weeks. You too? Getting back into a school routine can be challenging for everyone involved so easy breezy meals help out a ton while trying to get everything else in order. So heres a quick success from this week: Sheet Pan Chicken + Veggie Ranch Wraps. Continue reading
A couple of months ago I had the honor of attending the launch of the James Beard Foundations Blended Burger Project here in Minneapolis. The blended burger initiative aims to influence chefs to incorporate mushrooms into burger recipes, both for sustainability and health benefits. Makes perfect sense to me. And the coolest part is that this movement is being welcomed and respected to no end. From elite restaurants to classic burger joints, these blends are showing up on menus all around the world. And get this, schools throughout the country have incorporated blended burgers into their menus. Can you imagine? It’s time for change, friends, and I suppose we could start one household at a time.

What a weekend! Along with some much needed, totally relaxed family time we had a quite a bit of rain around here and it was so cozy. Turned out to be perfect weather for a light, fresh soup. And a giant bowl of Garden Fresh Tomato Basil was just perfection. Continue reading
Oye. One-Pan Chicken Philly Pitas with Sriracha Mayo. Thats a mouthful. They’re a mouthful. Happy mouthful to you, my dears!
These types of “sheet pan meals” are all over this here interweb these days. The plot: put it all on a sheet pan, bake it and eat it. Clever, no? Makes a great story for a quick weeknight meal. Continue reading
Let’s just go ahead and agree on something, okay? It’s time to make this recipe. It was time, like yesterday. Whip em up…wrap em up..and shovel. Then shovel again. As many times as you’d like. Your life will be changed. Continue reading
You guys. These mothers day commercials that are all over the tube these last couple of evenings? I gush. The tears. The sweetness. Mothers…of children, of students, of dogs, I don’t care who you mother. You deserve the world. Continue reading
When I first moved up to Minneapolis I waited tables at this place. There was a reuben on the menu that they were sort of known for at the time. But it wasn’t like any other reuben I’d ever had. The corned beef was braised. So the results were not a slice of dry beef, but the most tender, pull-apart, juicy bliss. It was basically like a love child between a pot roast and a corned beef brisket.
Fast forward about a bajillion years and here I was, just this past weekend, standing among a St Patricks Day haven at the local market: a giant cooler full of corned beef briskets. Score! Totally trying this reuben thing at home. Continue reading
We had a fabulous night out this past weekend.
It entailed a date with some of my favorite humans. Continue reading
Because sometimes you just need a dang sandwich.
The warm, crunchy-bread, juices-dripping-down-your-arm-so-you-revert-to-a-fork, cheesy-gooey kind of sandwich. Continue reading
