Farfalle With Sausage & Vegetable Ragú

Sometimes I think my freezer is a repository for UFOs, unidentified frozen objects. Periodically, I go through a ruthless cleansing rampage and find gelid surprises, like gluten-free Brazilian cheese bread (?!) to frostbitten mango chunks to mystery meat from the

肉じゃが: Hearty Yet Light Japanese Meat & Potatoes?

Hearty Nostalgic Pasta e Fagioli

Cassoulet (Or Exotic Comfort Food With Maximum Fanfare & Minimal Fuss)

Christmas dinner at Chez Gekiuma is usually a quiet affair with the hubby (whenever he can pry himself away from work) and me plus or minus the occasional orphaned guest(s). But even if it wasn’t a cozy, mellow affair, cassoulet

ฟักทองแกงไก่: Kabocha Pumpkin Curry Chicken For When The Thermometer Hits Brrr!

The highs have just barely broken 40F with gusting winds and enough showers to give us large pools of standing water at the intersections and now the itinerant snowflakes have made an appearance. Despite wearing multiple sweaters, waterproof jackets, and

Gnocchi With Tangy Roasted Eggplant & Tomato Sauce

I admit it. I’m an impulse shopper. I’m not drawn in by $XX.99 signs, buy 1 get half off deals or convenient displays at the checkout counter. Nope. I see something succulent or unusual at the produce department or in

Blistered Eggplant & Smoky Bell Pepper Stew With Chickpeas
