THE BEST flaky homemade yeast biscuits – made with an easy laminated yeasted dough, these are fluffy, buttery, and completely addictive.
The Best Flaky Homemade Yeast Biscuits

Prior to spring 2020 (ahem) I would have told you I was the least qualified person on this earth to lecture you on the virtues of a good biscuit. 

Any biscuit I ate in childhood definitely came from a can, I don’t have any heirloom family recipes to pass on (unless I’m somehow distantly related to the Pillsbury family – DOUBTFUL), and even in adulthood I’d only made biscuits a handful of times – certainly not enough to consider myself an expert on anything biscuit-related.

Thick, tart, and creamy vegetarian Greek avgolemono soup with rice and greens – the perfect soup for spring!
Vegetarian Greek Avgolemono Soup with Rice and Greens

Being married to a Greek has been a, shall we say, interesting experience. I thought Italians were territorial over their food, but the Greeks take it to a whole new level.

As an example, my husband’s parents have been married for well over thirty years, and his (paternal) grandmother still refuses to give his mother some of her recipes. I mean, she “gives” them to her, but she doesn’t GIVE them to her if you know what I mean. It’s all kind of shrouded in secrecy, deception, and inaccurate ingredient measurements.

Happy pi weekend!!!

As some of you may know, I went to MIT for college and pi day was kind of a big deal. There were tons of pie (and pi) related events, but more importantly FREE PIE both in the forms of pizza and the sweet varieties. College students are renowned for their love of free food to begin with, but throw actual good pie and non-Domino’s pizza into the mix….it was a special kind of mayhem, I’ll tell you that much.

I’m pretty sure we completely missed pi day last year because of the evolving pandemic-related craziness, so I’m making up for last time by celebrating it ALL WEEKEND this year. Our pie eating marathon starts now and I’m not even mad about it. If you’re lacking in pie inspiration, then check out the PIE page in my recipe index! It has tons of my favorite sweet and savory pies, so there’s really something for everyone.

Apparently we can’t live on pie alone (though don’t think I haven’t tried) – healthy vegetarian meal plan to the rescue!! Here’s what we’re cooking this week:

  • lemon chickpea orzo soup – love the bright flavors
  • enchilada soup – very into this
  • smoky black bean and tofu scramble tacos – because every day should be taco day
  • vegan power mac and cheese – yaaaasssss
  • crispy teriyaki cauliflower – swooning
  • chocolate chip almond butter cookies for dessert!

Happy eating!

Finger-licking good sticky sweet Thai chili tofu stir fry – crispy tofu cubes are tossed in a sweet and savory sauce along with stir-fried veggies.
Sticky Sweet Thai Chili Tofu Stir Fry

We’re about to get our frying pants on!!

(But seriously, it’s probably not a bad idea to invest in a whole separate outfit for frying days. THE HOT OIL SPLASHES – they’re real and they’ve ruined 90% of my clothes.)

You know I don’t fry much, but there’s a special place in my heart for crispy fried tofu and sometimes I JUST NEED IT OKAY.
