Thanksgiving step No. 1: Brie and pears

Megan Green Stuke

So let's talk about Thanksgiving. I've always admitted that it's not my favorite kind of food. I'm not into turkey, and all of the food is too brown and too rich for my tastes. But my family is not ready to let me make lasagna for Thanksgiving, so I soldier ...

Kansas food: Chili and cinnamon rolls

Megan Green Stuke

If you're from Kansas, you may remember eating chili and cinnamon rolls at school lunch. For me, it was one of the few school lunches I would eat. My poor, long-suffering mother had to pack my lunch nearly every day of my public-school-going life because I was spoiled and picky, ...

Veggie-ALE beef soup

Megan Green Stuke

There is nothing like cracking open a beer at 7:15 in the morning. On a Wednesday. And while I may or may not have done just that with the express purpose of consuming said beer in my younger and more exciting days, I still get pretty excited about it even ...

Meatball Wednesday? It's going to be a thing

Megan Green Stuke

If Meatless Monday is a thing, then I see no reason I can't make Meatball Wednesday a thing as well. Because much as I am game to have a meatless meal once a week, I am extremely fond of meatballs. I don't know what it is. I mean, I know ...

Shrimp tortellini for the girlfriends

Megan Green Stuke

When my husband leaves or is out for an evening, I make girly food and invite my friends over. Sometimes this looks like piles of fruit, cheese, crackers and snacks. Sometimes it looks like things with mushrooms or things that are meatless. Recently, it looked like tortellini in wine sauce ...

Late-summer veggie soft tacos

Megan Green Stuke

We are on a constant quest to use up the summer's bounty that graces our counters. I recently told a friend that I felt bad that some squashes were "languishing" in my fruit and veggie bowl, and vowed to not let it happen again. I'm tossing tomatoes, peppers, zucchinis, onions ...

Popper chicken a paleo starting point

Megan Green Stuke

I'm not saying I'm going Paleo. I'm not even saying I know what Paleo is. But I am saying that I've known for a long time that for many of us, particularly me, carbs = unsightly bulges that grow and grow. This does not often deter me because tortellini. Pizza ...

Turkey Taco Burger

Megan Green Stuke

I am using ground turkey more and more in my cooking, but I'll be honest: I have to be fairly creative about it. Mr. Meat and Potatoes and his progeny are getting better at knowing when I've sneakily subbed turkey for their precious ground beef. The best applications for us ...

Lamb chops, who knew?

Megan Green Stuke

I've been in a cooking rut for oh, say, four years. Part of that is my fault and is directly linked to "I am too tired to try very hard" after work and part of it is linked to "I am tired of making things my family will not eat ...

Mashed potato-stuffed red peppers: grilling renewed

Megan Green Stuke

Summer is not over, people. You might be feeling a bit "grill fatigued" at this point, but there are new things to do on your outdoor stove. Or, at least, they were new things to me. My neighbors do a great job of bringing exciting new things to my attention ...
