  1. In the Kitchen is back! This week I’m sharing a really easy baked egg dish. I stumbled on the recipe via Pinterest, and the next thing I know I’m at the store buying the ingredients. The recipe below serves one hungry adult. Pesto Potato Egg Bake Ingredients: 1 medium sized potato 2 eggs pesto blue cheese …

  2. I’m not one to follow a recipe. Most often, I get inspiration from blogs, Pinterest and cookbooks, then I just kinda wing it. Here are three such meals: Breakfast // Caramelized Grapefruit Cut a ripe grapefruit in half. Place on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with sugar. Place under the broiler until lightly browned (5-10 mins) Lunch …

  3. Let’s talk about toast. I love the stuff. Toasted, grilled, fried, freshly baked, you name it and I’m all over it. Yet, what I like most about toast is how handy it is. Toast is basically a tasty vehicle delivering a variety of different toppings and flavors to your mouth, all in a nice portion-controlled size. …

  4. Hope you all have a relaxing weekend! With the start of the new year, new resolutions and playing catch up at work, I’m ready for a few days off. Photo: Breakfast of eggs, bacon, feta and avocado on fried bread.

  5. Are we all enjoying the decadent tastes of the season? Who else is feeling a little regretful for having a chunk of cookie dough for dinner? I might be all alone on that one, but readers- I’m feeling a little sluggish from my baking adventures. So for the past 2 weeks, I’ve made a point to …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. Rarely do I miss the opportunity to start the day with something hearty and healthy. I have a great affinity for breakfast foods and take my love for eggs very seriously. This recipe is currently my favorite way to jazz up a fried egg. The tzatziki sauce is the real hero of this open faced sandwich …

  8. This chicken pot pie recipe makes your whole house smell so flippin’ good, you’ll want to dive head first into its buttery topping. Chicken pot pie always seemed like a cumbersome meal to put together, but this recipe from Sunday Suppers proves otherwise. I love the addition of root vegetables and sage, it’s sweet and savory …

  9. This might be the easiest salmon recipe, ever. It’s great for nights you just need to make a fresh meal for one, and it’s healthy too. Use whatever vegetables you fancy most, just make sure you julienne them nicely. You could also rub the salmon with a variety of spices, but in my humble opinion, a …

  10. Music has always been an essential accompaniment to time spent in the kitchen. I cook more often during the colder months, so that’s what inspired this playlist. It’s a mixed bag of genres, with some toe-tapping jazzy tunes and a few super mellow tracks. The gorgeous photo featured was shot by Caitlin of Roost, a graphic …

  11. I never plan to make muffins. The muffin making usually follows a muffin craving, one that strikes with full force on Sunday mornings. I had an emergency case last weekend, so I turned to my go-to recipe. You can make these bad boys on a whim, which is what makes this recipe so good. As soon …

  12. I’m always looking for easy and adaptable recipes for weeknight meals. So this week I thought I’d share a recipe that is a staple in my kitchen. It usually goes something like this: 1. Pour a glass of wine. 2. Prepare the following: + Whatever pasta I have on hand + Grab a hunk of whatever …

  13. this weekend i made a batch of butternut squash risotto. it was so light, creamy, and full of fall flavors, i thought i’d share my adapted recipe with you. i used martha stewart’s recipe, but swapped the recommended rosemary for sage, and roasted the squash instead of steaming it. i continued to enjoy this recipe by …

  14. do you have plans for labor day weekend? i’m taking it easy by spending time with my mom and sister, catching up on some reading, and enjoying a picnic by the lake. i’m thinking of making this recipe for prosciutto wrapped figs stuffed with feta and basil. what ever you have planned, i hope you partake …

  15. do you guys have a sweet or a savory tooth? i get weak in the knees for tart and salty treats, especially when herbs are added into the mix. here are two summertime treats that caught my eye yesterday: lemon-thyme soda, and rosemary french fries. _____________ lemon-thyme soda recipe from GQ, adapted from ABC Kitchen, photo …

  16. this BLT with slow roasted tomatoes instantly caused me to salivate when i saw it posted on TKoW this morning. check out the recipe on not without salt, and drool over some lovely and savory food photography.

  17. planning a picnic? tired of your standard brown-bag lunches? hate soggy bread and wilted salads? give this a try! so clever. image from the decorated cookie, via design crush

  18. the beginning of may has proven to be a frigid one. the only reasonable thing to do on a morning like this is to eat have a cup of tea and a hearty breakfast. this egg sandwich never fails to hit the spot. have a great monday, readers! egg sandwich: toasted french bread, tomato, avocado, over-easy …

  19. a few of you asked for the roasted brussels sprouts recipe i mentioned a few weeks ago. it was a twist on a basic way to cook them, and i really enjoyed hearing your tips and tricks for getting sprouts just right. so that got me thinking: would you guys be interested in doing a recipe …

  20. i’m meeting my talented and beautiful sister for lunch today. we haven’t decided where to eat, but some roast chicken with garlic and lemon, rosemary and cucumber g & t, and a slice of blueberry tart would really hit the spot… 1 | 2 | 3 |

  21. i love the guest post series that erin put together this month! my post is up at Apartment 34 this morning. we’re talking about my favorite way to spend these cold winter months. check it out! i’ve included some of my favorite cold weather recipes.

  22. wishing those of you in the states a happy thanksgiving! due to yesterday’s weather and a wicked flu going around my family’s home, we are staying in minneapolis this weekend. i’m about to make a big mess in the kitchen-i decided last minute to cook a big dinner for nick and my minneapolis friends. nothing too …

  23. last sunday evening, nick and i threw together a little impromptu picnic by the lake. just the two of us, avocado and tomato wraps, our new nikon d90, and a blanket. the crisp may weather was amazing. still, i would loved to have this basket, a few delicious hunks of cheese, and these vintage utensils. perfect …

  24. My wish list goes something like this:…Great British Food for its delightfully witty writing and quirky design …Olives and Oranges for delicious vegetarian meals…Coco for the star-studded line up of chefs and outrageously trendy recipes…i love macarons so i can learn how to make my own. i’m afraid i will be a little crabby once Lucia’s …

  25. …. i am making this *gorgeous* swiss chard, goat cheese and prosciutto tart i found over at tartelette. made my heart jumped a little bit. image by helen at tartelette

  26. (photo by the amazing Deb of smitten kitchen) Was it just me or did Valentine’s Day feel like it spanned the entire week this year? We celebrated over dinner on Friday night to avoid the crowds and by the time the actual day arrived I was so over pink and red, hearts and doilies, chocolates and …

  27. A perfect grilled cheese sandwich tops my list of guilty pleasures. What makes it even more sinful is eating the gooey sandwiches at odd hours. Like after a night at the bar, or for breakfast 🙂 Anyway, we’re beginning to think about the food we’ll be serving at our wedding and I just LOVE this idea …

  28. things haven’t been going in my favor today. it might be the weather, the computer issues or the fact it is only tuesday. but i think it may have more to do with the fact i drank one too many of those big beers while watching the vikings beat the packers last night (GO VIKES!). i …

  29. my favorite magazine is closing its doors after 69 years. just last night i curled up to finish the october issue of gourmet before the november issue arrives in my mailbox (any day now!). it made me hungry enough to get on my coat and walk to the grocery store to get the ingredients for a …

  30. i refuse to admit that summer is coming to a close. in many ways- my summer memories are defined by food. i usually make salad after salad-quick, cool dishes where the vegetables do all the hard work. i heard from a little birdy that since the temperatures were so mild in july- the tomatoes are just …

  31. Well. I don’t have much to report here. I’m playing catch up on sleep, cleaning, errands and emails this week. Hoping to find some time to catch my breath, cook a nice dinner and go for a long run. my kind of therapy. i was lucky enough to find time on sunday to stock my kitchen …

  32. last night i made nick and i some grilled cheese sandwiches. it occurred to me that these sandwiches might be known for their kid friendly qualities, but they don’t have to suffer from the blandness of white bread and Kraft singles (though sometimes this really hits the spot). so we grabbed some thick slices of our …

  33. i can’t say that nick and i have nailed down much for our wedding next fall. just lots of ideas, whizzing around in our heads. but one thing is for sure, we don’t want to do a standard wedding cake. i’ve always had a thing for desserts. i don’t have a raging sweet tooth or anything, …

  34. This recipe was featured in A Homemade Life, a book that I devoured while laying on the beach last week. This cake has a history behind it for Molly Wizenberg…in fact, it was this cake that, in a twist of fate, brought her future husband to her blog. Taken by her nack for words and love …

  35. (image from Apartment Therapy) I’ve been in the kitchen a lot lately. For whatever reason, the prep-prepare-plate-eat-clean ritual is soothing after a long day at work. Maybe because cooking allows for improvisation and creativity. You can substitute, add, and edit as you please and I’ve found that my senses are much better at gauging what food …
