Homemade Peanut Butter

I start drooling just looking at the pictures of this homemade peanut butter! Jack and I have been all about cooking projects lately, churning out homemade bagels, pasta, tortillas, and more. We‘ve loved all of them, but this homemade peanut butter recipe reminded us that cooking projects don‘t have to be ambitious to be fun. This peanut butter recipe calls for just 1 or 2 ingredients, and it comes together in under 10 minutes. Still,

Air Fryer French Fries

If you‘re looking for an easy side to pair with your veggie burgers this weekend, these air fryer French fries are just the thing for you! I know, I know. When it comes to grilling sides, I‘m usually all about salads or corn on the cob, but sometimes, I get a craving for a salty, crunchy snack that even the best summer salad can‘t satisfy. That‘s where these air fryer French fries come in. In a lot of ways, they‘re j

Homemade Bagel Recipe

This homemade bagel recipe is Jack‘s new favorite thing to bake, and I couldn‘t be happier! Like many of you, he‘s been baking up a storm lately, churning out crusty loaves of sourdough filled with dried fruit, nuts, or roasted garlic. I love all of it, but I‘m especially excited whenever he starts a new batch of bagels. These may be homemade, but they have all the essential qualities of a good bagel: a shiny exterior, a l

47 Best Healthy Snacks

If I don‘t have a stockpile of healthy snacks on hand, I will, without fail, reach for a cookie at 3pm. Now, there‘s nothing wrong with treating yourself to something sweet in the afternoon, but if I‘m working on a newcookie recipe, there‘s a good chance that snacking on sweets will become less of a treat and more of a habit. Over the years, I‘ve learned that filling up on healthy snacks like veggies and dip, smoothi

Italian Chopped Salad

Who else loves chopped salad? I‘m a huge fan of all salads, but chopped salad has to be one of my favorites. Because the ingredients are, well, chopped, you can get a little bit of everything in each bite, so it‘s extra-flavorful and fun to eat! Speaking of fun, this chopped salad recipe comes from my friend Gaby‘s new book What‘s Gaby Cooking: Eat What You Want. If you‘re not already familiar with Gaby‘s blog

Best Veggie Burger

Say hello to the BEST veggie burger recipe! Of course, that‘s just my opinion, but once you try it, I think you‘ll agree. For one, these patties are grill-able! And if you‘d rather be spending time in the sun than in the kitchen, you can even make them a day or two in advance. But that‘s not all. This veggie burger has an amazing meaty texture and savory, smoky flavor. It‘ll keep its shape when it‘s stuffed ins

Homemade Hamburger Buns

Three months ago, if someone had told me that Jack and I would start making homemade hamburger buns every week, I would have laughed. To me, hamburger buns seemed like something that only professional bakers could make. But since Jack‘s been baking up a storm lately, the idea of homemade hamburger buns started to seem less and less crazy. If we could make bagels and bread, why not hamburger buns too? After testing and re-testing this recipe

How to Measure Flour

Have you ever made a bread or cake recipe that promised to be moist and tender but turned out to be dry and dense? You‘re not alone. This is a common problem in baking, and often, the solution is trying a new method for how to measure flour. First, if you don‘t already have a kitchen scale, get one, because weighing your flour will give you the most accurate measurement every time. When you weigh the flour for a recipe, you know exact

Bright Spring Salad

When the weather warms up in the spring, there‘s nothing I crave more than this spring salad. Light, bright, and packed with spring‘s best produce, it‘s a perfect example of why eating seasonally is so exciting. This spring salad recipe is almost entirely veggies, but because each one is at its snappiest, sweetest, or softest right now, you don‘t have to do much to turn them into a tasty dish. Toss them with a zesty dressi

Homemade Granola Bars

A few weeks ago, I started craving the granola bars I ate as a kid. They had a chewy texture, a sweet, oat-y flavor, and pockets of mini chocolate chips. These days, I don‘t keep packaged snacks around the house, but I always have old fashioned oats, nuts, and seeds in my pantry. I might not have had the exact granola bars I was craving on hand, but I could make homemade granola bars that‘d be even better! Fast forward to now, and I&l

If you‘re wondering what to serve with tacos tonight, you‘re in the right place! We all love tacos, but in my book, the sides (and the drinks!) are an equally important part of taco night.

You‘ll find 21 of my favorite side dishes for tacos below. They‘re all fresh and
