Summertime Fried Chicken Sandwiches with Tangy Slaw

Whenever a visitor, staff, child, or adoptive family leaves CSC to go back home, the kids sing a goodbye song and everyone hugs. Like literally, every kid hugs every person. That’s 80+ hugs and yet somehow, for me, it went way too fast. In looking back at our goodbye, I just wish I could have had a full minute to look each individual sweet kid in the eyes, study their face one last time, and hold them tight for [...]

July Coffee Date

Stop right there. Sweet potato noodles? CASHEW SAUCE? First of all, y-u-m. Secondly, it’s true. I’m going fake-vegan-rogue on you today. In terms of actual real life serious commitments, I’m not a vegan or a vegetarian. But I am a person who likes to try new things and sometimes I get lazy about cooking meat, so a few months ago I bought three different spiralizers – those crazy machines that make vegetables into noodles. I wanted to try them and see which ones were [...]

Spicy Shrimp Veracruz

P90X. Have you heard of it? No? Come to this house and you will hear about it. Possibly every other sentence this week has started with “P90X…” And now’s the part where I smirk and tell you that it’s not actually me that’s doing the P90X exercise program and you think I’m a little bit lazy. And I think so, too. Hard core exercise is not for me. I like to take it easy with the same mild running [...]

Couscous Summer Salad

This creamy cauliflower garlic rice is simple, healthy, and so surprisingly good. I don’t even know what to say about this. I mean, I’m sure I could come up with a few things if you made me, but I fully acknowledge that this recipe is kind of obscure. Like who posts recipes for brown rice and cauliflower sauce? Um, me. Ever since I did the whole cauliflower-in-alfredo-sauce thing, I’ve been trying to incorporate as much as that creamy vegetable [...]

BLT Panzanella

Today we are giving a big huge virtual hug to my favorite whole wheat pasta makers at DeLallo for sponsoring this post. Pasta, pasta, and more pasta! Once upon a time, I had this idea to make an Alfredo sauce out of cauliflower. Remember that? Throwbaaack. I loved it, you loved it, we all loved it together. It was 2012 and life was good. In the years since that recipe came to life, it’s been so nice to have a healthier alternative to traditional cream-and-butter [...]
