Slow Cooker “Baked” Potatoes — 5 points

by Queen of Points on December 9, 2011

I frequently start making dinner and think “ooh, a baked potato would be good with this” about 10 minutes before I’m done cooking the main course. Yes, there’s the microwave, but my experience is that’s a great way to ruin a potato. [ Read More → ]

Hearty Celery Root Soup with Gruyère — 4 Points

by Queen of Points on December 7, 2011

This soup is hearty, earthy, and rich. How it manages to taste rich with no cream, I don’t know. But it is. I made it as a starter on Thanksgiving and got rave reviews. [ Read More → ]

Wheat Berries are new to me. I have to admit, they sounded like the kind of things only folks with VW vans and composting toilets would prepare. Not that there’s anything wrong with VW vans and composting toilets, mind you, but I’m more of a leather seats and double shower head kind of girl.

Surprise, surprise — wheat berries are *really* good. [ Read More → ]

‘Tis the season for corn and tomatoes! Succotash is a tasty, healthy, easy recipe that takes advantage of some of the excellent veggies that are in season. This takes 15 minutes at most to prepare, and makes great leftovers. [ Read More → ]

I’m noticing my gastronomical desires changing quite a bit these days. I’ve always been a big carnivore. Omnivore is probably a more accurate word, but meat was always a key ingredient in just about everything I made at home or ordered in a restaurant. I thought of vegetarian recipes as boring, and the resulting dishes inevitably lacking. No meat? How will I ever be satisfied? [ Read More → ]

Egg & Broccoli Strudel: 5 points

by Queen of Points on May 20, 2011

This is a delicious breakfast, but I have to admit it’s kind of a pain in the ass to make. It’s not hard to make, but messing with individual sheets of phyllo dough is… well, let’s just say it requires patience. It’s perfect if you’re trying to impress a morning guest, though. I’m just not likely to make it for myself again. [ Read More → ]

Asparagus, Mushroom, & Bean Casserole: 7 points

by Queen of Points on May 9, 2011

I’m on a big asparagus kick these days. There are so many great ways to prepare it as a side vegetable, I’m usually hesitant to put it a main dish. The flavor holds up in this casserole. The chanterelle mushrooms are a nice meaty addition and the beans do their beany thing and don’t get in the way. Be sure to use a stainless steel pan for this so you get some good crispy bits in the mixture. [ Read More → ]

I admit, eggplant has never been high on my list of favorite foods. Every so often someone would convince me to try baba ghanoush, and I’d take a spoonful and think “hey, that’s not bad.” Then I’d take another spoonful and think “well, it’s not awful, anyway.” And after the third taste I’d have had enough.

Stuffed Portabellas: 8 points

by Queen of Points on April 10, 2011

I made these stuffed portabellas for a friend yesterday after we visited our local farmers market. Now I admit I’ve rolled my eyes internally (ok, and occasionally externally) at the whole idea of being “connected to my food.” But I must concede defeat in this case. I used fresh, local portabellas and spinach [ Read More → ]

Scrambled Eggs Salad: 8 points

by Queen of Points on March 18, 2011

I love eggs. Love, love, love them. Fried, scrambled, hard-boiled, soft-boiled, omeletted, even raw on top of sushi. I had a friend for breakfast the other day and wanted to do something eggy and healthy, so I scavenged my fridge and added whatever looked good. [ Read More → ]
