Housekeeping…

Hi everyone!  No recipes today, but just a little housekeeping task.  I’m switching to a privately hosted site from WordPress.com.  You probably won’t notice much of a difference at first, and the web address is still http://www.butimhungry.com.

What this means to you: If you subscribe to the blog via e-mail, you’ll still get posts that way.  However, if you’re subscribed via WordPress reader, you’ll have to follow the new link and re-subscribe there if you want to keep getting e-mail updates.  Hope you’ll follow me over to the new site and on to bigger and better things!  Thanks, guys!

Cauliflower-Feta Fritters with Cumin Yogurt and Pomegranate

Cauliflower-Feta Fritters with Cumin Yogurt and PomegranateMy poor husband.  I don’t say this lightly, because I truly enjoy reminding him what a lucky man he is… most of the time.  But when it comes to this, I admit it’s not easy being my significant other.

See… he’s not allowed to “not like” foods.  I mean, technically, he is… but I don’t take it well.  I feel the need to take up that banner of that food and convince him that he really does enjoy said food, if only he had it prepared the right way, or in the right circumstances, or from the right source.  It starts innocently enough.  He says, “You know, I’ve never been a big <insert food/ingredient here> fan.  I just don’t like it.”  Me: “WHAT?!?!

Smothered Cabbage and Rice Soup

Smothered Cabbage and Rice Soup

I know what some of you are saying. “Two soups in a row?  What is this?!”

Friends, I will tell you what this is.  This is called February in the Arctic Chicago.  It’s really cold.  All the time.  Not the kind of duh-it’s-winter cold, but the kind of cold that precludes you from leaving the house some days and makes you want to hibernate on your couch until March.  Or April, more likely.  It’s weather that calls for a lot of soup.

Creamy Tomato-Basil Soup

Creamy Tomato-Basil SoupFor a long time, if you asked me what my absolute favorite meal was, I would reply, “Grilled cheese and tomato soup,” without any hesitation.  Now, I have always loved a grilled cheese and still do, with a passion, in fact.  But over the years, I realized that the other half of that duo was just not holding up its end of the bargain. I would dutifully make my can of tomato soup to go with my sandwich, and while it kind of worked as a counterpoint to a perfectly toasty, cheesy sandwich, it mostly just sucked.  I know this is impolitic of me, but regular tomato soup is just so boring.  The terrible mediocrity of it is what made me give up on the idea that grilled cheese and tomato soup was, indeed, my favorite meal.  Something that most closely resembled ketchup water had no place in any of my favorites lists.

And then… dun dun dun. Continue reading

Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing

Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing

I love the whole concept of spinach salad with bacon dressing.  It strikes just the right balance of healthy and splurge-worthy.  Loaded up with vitamin-packed spinach, mushrooms, and red onion, and some protein-righ eggs, this salad makes for a healthy lunch option.  Add in some warm, rich dressing and big crumbles of bacon and you have a lunch option that you actually want to eat.  Win-win.

Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Brown Butter and Pecans

Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Brown Butter and Pecans

This isn’t just a chocolate chip cookie.

Let me rephrase that.  Saying just a chocolate chip cookie is somewhat disparaging to chocolate chip cookies.  A chocolate chip cookie can be the epitome of what a cookie should be.  So I’ll say it this way: This isn’t your typical chocolate chip cookie.  This cookie is so chock full of chocolate, pecans, and flecks of browned butter that it was all I could do to stop myself from shoving teaspoonfuls of the batter into my already chocolate-stained mouth.  (Ok, I didn’t stop myself. Lots of dough was harmed in the making of these cookies.) Continue reading
