Farro with Tomatoes

This Smitten Kitchen recipe proved to be a good way to use up some garden tomatoes. We served this with a simple seared salmon and a cuke tomato salad.

Pressure Cooker Pinto Beans

I was really happy with this recipe – it makes a ton, and they work as a great Mexican side dish (in our case, accompanying fish tacos) or even as the star attraction of lunch. I froze half for a later meal. These are great with a little bit of queso fresco crumbled over them.

Cauliflower Rice

This is my second or third time making cauliflower rice and probably my most basic rendition. I used this recipe for inspiration and paired it with these kebabs (using shrimp instead of chicken). Terrific meal during my low carb week.

Quinoa Salad with Pistachio and Dried Fruit

This recipe calls for currants but I couldn’t find them at the store, so I used dried cranberries instead. As a result, this was probably sweeter than the recipe intended, but we still enjoyed it. We paired it with turkey palliards (as well as some stir-fried veggies) much like often we do with Becky’s quinoa recipe.

Top Round Roast with Yorkshire Pudding

John and I handled Christmas cooking this year because of family stuff going on. That meant John’s Chicken and Rice for a pre-Christmas meal; Meatballs with Sauce and Inside Out Stuffed Peppers to bring to expecting family members; Mandy’s Egg Bake for Christmas Eve breakfast; cheese, shrimp cocktail and hummus (with carrots and pita) for Christmas Day appetizers/snacks; and a plain baked ham for general snacking/filler.

But Christmas Dinner was of course, the main event. I told John to pick up a meat roast that wasn’t as expensive as prime rib that I could pair with Yorkshire Pudding. He came back with top round. I’d never cooked it before so I was a little nervous about how it would turn out, but we were thrilled with the results. We served it with said Yorkshire Pudding , a simple Greek salad and green beans almondine. I also made a quick mushroom gravy to go with the meat.

Ben’s Asian Cole Slaw

My friend Ben brought this slaw to a party once, and I couldn’t stop eating it. I’ve made it a couple times since, every time I get some cabbage in the CSA that I don’t know what to do with.

Pinto Beans with Bacon

This dish couldn’t be easier, and turns out really satisfying. I think I based this off of a Pioneer Woman recipe.
