One of my many missions in life is to create fresh beet recipes that will win over even the biggest beet skeptics. Luckily, Jack has given me ample practice over the years. When we first met, he wouldn’t come near a beet, let alone taste one. But with time (and only a little trickery), I’ve gotten him to try and enjoy a host of beet recipes. Just last week, he devoured an entire beet salad at dinner, proclaiming how much he loved it with every bite. So if you’re still on the fence about beets, I get it. Their earthy […]

I’m always sad to see summer go, but as I compiled this list of fall recipes over the weekend, I couldn’t help but look forward to the new season. It’s a chance for a fresh start, to dive headfirst into a new routine and new activities. Of course, I’ll miss our summer picnics and the nights when the sun didn’t set till 9, but I’m also excited for change – for hot bowls of soup, weekend baking, and long walks on crisp afternoons. To celebrate the start of the season, I’m sharing over 60 of my favorite fall recipes below. […]

It seems like it was just yesterday when Jack and I made our first grill recipes of the summer. Where does the time go?

12 Easy Eggplant Recipes

Of all the vegetable recipes I post, eggplant recipes are the most divisive. Early on, this surprised me, because eggplant recipes have always been some of my favorite foods to eat. As a kid, I never wanted to stop playing at dinnertime, except when my…


Of all the vegetable recipes I post, eggplant recipes are the most divisive. Early on, this surprised me, because eggplant recipes have always been some of my favorite foods to eat. As a kid, I never wanted to stop playing at dinnertime, except when my mom was making eggplant Parmesan. And when I started to explore vegetarian cooking on my own, grilled eggplant was one of the first dishes I mastered. But if I’ve learned one thing through writing Love and Lemons, it’s that not everyone likes eggplant. I’ve heard it called spongy, bitter, and bland, and to that I […]

9 times out of 10, I come up with my favorite rice bowl recipes on nights when I don’t know what to cook for dinner.

22 Easy Chickpea Recipes

Confession: I love chickpea recipes so much that I almost named this blog “Chickpea Chick.” In retrospect, I’m glad I went in a different direction, but chickpeas are still one of my all-time favorite foods. For starters, they’r…


Confession: I love chickpea recipes so much that I almost named this blog “Chickpea Chick.” In retrospect, I’m glad I went in a different direction, but chickpeas are still one of my all-time favorite foods. For starters, they’re healthy, delicious, and packed with plant-based protein, but they’re versatile, too. They can blend into creamy, lemony hummus, bake into crispy, herb-flecked falafel, add protein to a salad, crunch to a grain bowl, and so much more! Below, you’ll find 22 of my favorite chickpea recipes. They include garbanzo bean basics like roasted chickpeas and hummus, inventive entrées, and everything in between. […]

Like so many of you, Jack and I spent last weekend going from store to store, looking for supplies like hand soap, toilet paper, and, of course, groceries. I know many of you are pros at shopping and prepping meals for a week, but typically, I visit the grocery store almost every day to pick up basics for dinner, fresh produce for a new recipe, or the one key ingredient I forgot to grab the last time I was there. But last weekend was different. Instead of running to the store for a few things, we were stocking up on […]

Homemade Caesar Dressing

Purists will tell you that you can’t make a good Caesar dressing without an egg yolk, anchovies, and Worcestershire sauce. But here’s the thing: what I love about Caesar salad dressing is that it’s creamy, briny, tangy, and rich. I thought there had to be a way to make a dressing that checked all those boxes with totally vegetarian ingredients (and no raw eggs). Turns out, I was right! This homemade Caesar salad dressing recipe is every bit as delicious as the traditional version, and it’s so easy to make. It calls for just 7 simple ingredients, and you don’t […]
