Lentils Provencal

Don’t let the name fool you – this is not a healthy dish. It is, however, what I would classify as healthy-ish, as in it does use all fresh and whole ingredients. But alas the pound of bacon make it less than truly healthy in my book.

Eggplant Parmesan

Talk about comfort food. This layered Eggplant Parmesan is perfect for feeding a lot of your favorite people or making for a Sunday dinner and having leftovers all week! It’s extremely easy to make and a fun project for two people in the kitchen.

Tortilla Española

Tortilla Española is one of my favorite foods. Period. Not to be confused with a tortilla – it’s an egg dish full of olive oil, potatoes and onions. It’s easy, filling and is a complete crowd pleaser at every meal – breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Peanut Stew

Rainy season can sometimes really drive you crazy. Dark, dreary days followed by long dark evenings – it gets monotonous after a while. For me, it’s important to be able to change it up a little bit for dinners, always, but especially when the weather gets the best of me.

Tuesday Night Lamb Tacos

Some weeks are full of things to do, people to see and places to go. Others are a little bit more low key and potentially in need of a midweek pick me up. That’s where these lamb tacos come in.

In Pursuit of Passion: Jen Cooper

Roast Pork Pasta

I was recently back in my home town of Philadelphia. It’s a great city, full of amazing history, architecture, people (we’re not as mean as they say we are) and food. The food in the city of Philadelphia is absolutely outstanding – from our street food to fine dining, we’ve got something for everyone. I will say that the category that Philadelphia potentially does better than any other city is the sandwich.
