  • Meal Plan for April Week 4

    This month, Summer Miller is back, sharing her meal plans for April. Summer is a mom, a full-time food writer, and also helps test the fabulous recipes we bring you every week at Simply Recipes. Each spring I tiptoe out to my garden to check the buds on our perennials and the blossoms on our apple trees, and to plant seeds for early-season vegetables.

  • Nut-Free “Peanut Butter” Chocolate Chip Cookies

    Birthdays and holidays in the daycare classroom involve some culinary creativity. Most schools are nut-free these days, and a lot of our son’s friends also have egg allergies or gluten sensitivities.

It imparts a nutty flavor similar to peanut butter, but is much more allergy-friendly. Continue reading "Nut-Free “Peanut Butter” Chocolate Chip C...

  • Moo Goo Gai Pan (Chinese Chicken and Mushroom Stir Fry)

    I spent most of my time in culinary school perpetually hungry (ironically). Like most college students, I was living on pennies and most of my meals came from our “Production 201” class—a course in which we prepared food for mass consumption. On the rare occasion when I had a few bucks to spare, I would indulge in Chinese takeout. Moo Goo Gai Pan — Chinese Chicken and Mushroom Stir Fry — was my go-to meal. Continue reading "Moo Goo Gai Pan (Chinese Chicken and Mushroom St...

  • Mushroom Toast with Fried Egg

    All you have to say is “eggs and toast” and I’m on board. Add a mound of sautéed mushrooms on top, and now the dish looks and tastes like something more elaborate. It’s just eggs and toast, but the mushrooms elevate it. Instead of an everyday breakfast, suddenly it’s a brunch dish, a quick supper, or part of a menu for guests.
