Hearty Lentil Soup

October 4, 2012 Soups and Stews

I confess, this isn’t actually a new recipe. It’s one of the many that I posted years ago and have been wanting/meaning to update with nice photos and better copy.

July 18, 2011 Salads

  Lately, I’ve been riding my bike to and from work everyday. It’s great exercise, but it’s hard to ride with a packed lunch- unless that lunch is light. In the summer, I like cool salads like this tangy lentil salad. It’s filling yet light and is an absolute cinch to travel with. You could [...]
