People. I know you’re busy. I know you’ve got things to do and people relying on you. Hogwash. There is nothing more important than you grabbing your keys, hightailing it to the grocers, and buying everything you need to make these burgers stat.
It’s far enough into winter that I’m not as into rich hearty soups and stews as I was when the weather first turned cold. And even though it’s still January, the days are getting longer. February’s only a few days away, and March is a countdown. Today at the store I picked up a zucchini — the best-looking out-of-season vegetable I saw — to work into a summery pasta for lunch.
When I first started cooking, I followed recipes to a T…which is only natural when you start to learn to cook, since it’s hard to know what changing an ingredient might do to the recipe! As we’ve tried more and more recipes, I’ve gradually started to understand how to create my own. Now there’s nothing I love more than trying to come up with a way to use the ingredients I happen to have on hand or see at my local market ! This soup was inspired by some greens from a local food delivery , combined with the memory of a soup made by a good friend a while back. It turned out so delicious that we had to make promptly it again just to convince ourselves that it was actually THAT good. And true to form, I pulled out the superlatives (“best soup…ever!”).
April is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich month and that was all the excuse that I needed to try out some new grilled cheese sandwich recipes! Not too long ago, while I was devouring a batch of the ever so addictive jalapeno popper dip , I was thinking about other ways to enjoy that amazing flavour combination and the idea that stuck was the one for a jalapeno popper grilled cheese sandwich. As soon as I had that thought I knew that I would have to try it and this was the perfect time! The basic idea was to incorporate the flavours and textures of jalapeno poppers in a grilled cheese sandwich and the first step was the jalapeno peppers themselves.

Remember that Eddie Murphy routine in “Raw” when he talks about how his mom promised to make him a burger that was “better than McDonald’s”? I’m not going to tell you this Black Bean Burrito with Cilantro-Lime Rice is better than Chipotle’s, because that would be madness. BUT, depending on how crazy you get with the toppings, it can definitely be cheaper, more nutritious, and low enough in calories that you could eat the whole thing without feeling like a slug marooned on a sidewalk. Plus, when your family’s tired of having the same-old stuff for dinner, it’s nice to prep a bunch of burrito ingredients and let everyone make their own. An easy way to keep your vegans, vegetarians, carnivores, omnivores, flexitarians and cannibals satisfied.
