Dinner Rush! Farro + Red Lentils with Tahini-Soy Vinaigrette

Beef stews, roast chickens, tuna casseroles — it’s all good in moderation, but it can get to be too much. I’m not saying to swear it off; I’m saying to lighten up one night this week. Sometimes just eating clean and light food can be the jump-start we need to get out of the slump […]

Dinner Rush! Char Siu BBQ Pork + Sesame-Roasted Broccoli

It’s pronounced “shar-see,” and, yes, it’ll change your life. Char siu is a popular Chinese version of barbecued meat, most typically pork nowadays. The tender cut of meat is slow-roasted with a sauce made of hoisin, five-spice powder, soy sauce and Shaoxing wine (a popular Chinese rice wine). Many of us are familiar with char […]

Dinner Rush! One-Dish Baked Chicken + Vegetables

In many ways, a one-dish meal is both the ultimate challenge and the ultimate reward. Many promised “one-dish dinners” actually yield a full sink of soiled pots. Can a successful meal truly be created from so little dishwashing? Absolutely. Not only is this dish delicious and easy, it’s stunning served directly from oven to table. […]

Dinner Rush! Steak Sandwiches with Tomato Jam + Watercress

Look, I know what you’re thinking. “Tomato jam? In February?” Yes, tomato jam in February. February is, in fact, the perfect time to be enjoying this spread of the gods. Being that they’re out of season in most of the U.S. right now, savoring the joy of the tomato usually means eating yellow-greenish slices of […]

Dinner Rush! Ginger Pork Patties with Miso Mayo + Oven Fries

A beautiful thing happens when two culinary superpowers collide. When the savory bliss of miso goes head-to-head with the creamy indulgence of mayonnaise, magic happens. Magic, my friends, that merits repeat dips from some crispy oven fries. While I can hardly lay claim to the invention of miso mayo, singing its high praises has become […]

Dinner Rush! Rigatoni with Meat Sauce and Peas

There’s no sense in even trying to deny the allure of rigatoni. You love it, you know you love it and there’s no shame in admitting it. Those thick tubes of perfectly cooked pasta, harboring secret pockets of saucy delight. Don’t even try to wipe the drool off your keyboard. Resistance is futile. Seriously, though, […]

Dinner Rush! Seared Lemon Caesar Salad

Now that we’re a fresh and free-wheeling three weeks into the New Year, it’s clear that you’re doing everything right. You’re hitting the gym, drinking less, sleeping better and pounding back salads for lunch like it’s your job. Right? Three out of four? Really it’s that last part that’s cause for most concern. There’s a […]

Dinner Rush! Paprika Steaks with Maple-Worcestershire Shallots

Polar vortexes, bubbles freezing in mid-air, snow falling by the tens of inches – it’s all too much! Calm down, 2014! A year kicking off with such atmospheric tenacity certainly merits a bit of indulgence. Make it a steak night, why don’t ya? Few pleasures in life quell the inner carnivore’s urges like a steakhouse […]

Brunch Rush! Sausage, Egg and Cheese Strata

What do the following seasonal phenomena have in common? Fitness- and diet-tracking apps flood the social media feeds. Champagne glasses clink and toast to health and good tidings. Everyone starts singing “Auld Lang Syne” (even though no one actually knows the words). Many of us brace for the first hangover of the year. That’s right […]

Dinner Rush! Lemon-Pepper Chicken with Orzo

I can remember growing up and rifling in awe through my grandma’s collection of spices. The sights and smells of things like mace, nutmeg and ginger were exotic to a curious 8-year-old. What did not seem that exotic, though, was a jar plainly labeled Lemon & Pepper. I mean, it smelled nice and all, but […]
