Don’t let the ingredient list fool you, this recipe is super easy, super healthy, and super filling. It can also easily be converted into a vegetarian recipe by swapping out the chicken for some extra firm or firm tofu. Make it vegan with a cheese substitute. When we make this recipe (as I try to

Eggplant is kind of a strange fruit. It’s mostly water, and other than providing a reasonable amount of dietary fiber (about 5 grams per cup of eggplant), it really doesn’t have much else to offer on its own. However, its blandness and lack of… everything makes it a great vehicle for sauces, breadings, and other

My friends and I got together one day, back in the fall, and we tried to make chicken burgers. They tasted great, but they just fell apart. This time, we decided to try something different — binding agents. If you ever wondered why egg and bread crumbs were on the ingredient list for meatballs and

I’ve really been into making hummus lately. Buying it in batches at the store, with the amount of it I can eat in a week, gets expensive quickly. Making it at home is way cheaper, even with this recipe, which is the most expensive because of the tapenade. Of the three I’ve made so far,

As delicious as my spicy hummus is, sometimes I need to mix things up a bit. Back when I used to buy hummus, I used to love the roasted red pepper kind. I also really liked olive tapenade hummus, though it was almost impossible to find, which is why I have to figure out my own

So, my right wrist is immobilized in a brace after a stupid hockey injury landed me with some torn cartilage. We’ve been eating out, eating frozen, and eating a lot of popcorn lately, as a result. It’s been maybe a week and a half to two weeks of that, and I’m about ready to kill

I love lemon baked goods at any time of year, though my biggest struggle is making baked goods “healthy” (although those guilt-free “fudge” brownies I made are probably the best example to date). I love sweets, but as I’m getting older, they’ve started sticking to me a bit and more and more of my friends
