Cranapple Banana Muffin with Raspberry Topping 7

Cranapple Banana Muffins & Raspberry Topping

No dairy. No eggs. No salt. No oil. No gluten. No sugar. I know what you’re thinking: No taste. Wrong! I intended it to be a breakfast item. But by the time I was done making it, I simply had to call this a dessert. And I don’t do desserts. Not just because I don’t have much of a sweet tooth anymore, but because I. Can’t. Bake. Luckily … Read More...

Rustic Kale with Beluga Lentils & Carrots by Parsley In My Teeth 1

Rustic Kale with Beluga Lentils & Carrots

This recipe resulted from a “clean out the fridge and cupboards” session. The kale I intended to feature in another recipe fell to the back of the fridge and was almost forgotten. I had a few carrots at the bottom of the vegetable drawer that were on the verge of going bad. And a few months ago, I picked up a 1.5 pound bag of Beluga Lentils that I had … Read More...

Roasted Red Peppers & Feta 7

Roasted Red Pepper & Feta Spread

Two ingredients.  And a little patience is all you need to make this fabulous appetizer. This is actually my mother-in-law's recipe.  I've mentioned before what a good cook she is, and this is one of her staples.  I have yet to meet anyone who doesn't like it.  In fact, we had guests over recently, one who happens to be a chef, and he couldn't … Read More...

Mushroom 3-Bean Chili by Parsley In My Teeth 2

Mushroom 3-Bean Chili

It’s not even Thanksgiving and Chicago’s already in the deep freeze. We’re looking at temperatures in the 20s and 30s for the next couple of weeks. Time to get warm from the inside out! The preparation of this chili is simple – just dice up the mushrooms and onion, throw everything in a pot and let it simmer. I wanted to keep this as clean as … Read More...

Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Sage Pesto by Parsley In My Teeth 3

Roasted & Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Sage Pesto

I have two rather sad-looking sweet potatoes sitting on my counter waiting to be used. I can’t remember what I had in mind for them, but they’ve been sitting there long enough that I need to use them before they totally die on me. We use a lot of sage at Thanksgiving and since the holiday is just around the corner, it’s time to start … Read More...

Roasted Red Peper & Eggplant Spread by Parsley In My Teeth 4

Roasted Red Pepper & Eggplant Spread

Think of this as baba ghanoush with a Mediterranean twist. This recipe is my mother-in-law’s and it’s one of my favorite appetizers, piled high on a rustic, crunchy slice of bread. Normally, our freezer is packed full with roasted red peppers and eggplants which my in-laws make by the bushel to use all winter. But, horror of horrors, I ran out of … Read More...

Butterbean & Vegetable Soup by Parsley In My Teeth 1

Butterbean & Vegetable Soup

On Halloween, Chicago was hit with a freak storm like I’ve never seen. The driving wind from the north felt like a hurricane, there were periods of snow, followed by sheets of ice pelting the windows, and of all things – thunder! I was certain my windows were going to blow out. The storm started around noon and didn’t stop until the next morning. … Read More...

Creamy Potato Brussels Sprouts Soup by Parsley In My Teeth 5

Creamy Potato and Brussels Sprout Soup

Am I a little obsessed with Brussels sprouts right now? Perhaps. But this time, it’s different. If you or someone you know is not a fan of brussels sprouts, this soup is a game-changer. I’m not kidding. It’s sooooo good that it will win over the harshest critics of this humble veg. The secret is in the stalk. Protected inside the tough, … Read More...
