Penne a la Bacon

Megan Green Stuke

Cooking weeknight dinners can be tricky when time is an issue. Often, meals get plugged in between sports practices, baths, homework and chores. In order to handle the "no time for dinner prep" evenings, it's good to have a few stand-by ingredients on hand. In my house, bacon and shrimp ...

Pulled pork arepas

Megan Green Stuke

Recently, a friend suggested I write about arepas, and I realized I'd completely forgotten about the easiest way to pull together a complete meal in minutes. I hadn't made arepas since college, when they were a standard way to quickly and inexpensively serve dinner to a guest or four. Arepas ...

White chicken enchiladas

Megan Green Stuke

Enchiladas can take on any form, and there's rarely one that isn't absolutely delicious. If you're interested in moving away from canned sauces, there are many simple ways to create a restaurant-quality enchilada that comes from basic ingredients and some rudimentary know-how. White enchiladas are a nice departure from the ...

Italian roast beef hoagies

Megan Green Stuke

Surprisingly, cooking a roast can be very intimidating. One would think that as the standard Sunday dinner fare, it would be a simple "anyone can do it" sort of thing, but cooking a roast requires some basic information and a little bit of know-how. They're rather easy to ruin. There ...

Community pot paella

Megan Green Stuke

Paella is a Spanish dish that traditionally consists of rice, rabbit, chicken and vegetables. In recent, years, though, a more "Americanized" version has emerged, and paella has become a sort of "catch-all" dish for proteins and vegetables of many sorts. Traditional paella is cooked over an open fire of pine ...

'Marry Me' Thai chicken soup

Megan Green Stuke

My friends and I all agree that it's important to have a "Marry Me" meal in our cooking repertoires. For Kiley, it's a chicken-fried steak/mashed potato/Brookville corn situation. For me, at least as far as I know, it was manicotti that brought my husband to the alter all those years ...

Tomato soup brings a little summer to December

Megan Green Stuke

Last summer, when my tomato plants were rife with fruit, I followed a friend's advice and blanched and peeled about a bushel to freeze. Canning, it turns out, is a bit fussy for me. I can toss some stuff in a freezer bag like nobody's business though. And then I ...

Mac and cheese with a secret ingredient

Megan Green Stuke

I got really inspired by the sweet potato fries I made last week, and I've been rocking the sweet potatoes ever since. I have to be careful, though, because my sweet potato-hating family will not go for obvious recipes, and I hate most sweet recipes anyway, so I shy away ...

Cheesy gougeres for Thanksgiving gorging

Megan Green Stuke

One thing I do love about Thanksgiving is the bread. There is always a steaming pile of amazing dinner rolls, a crusty loaf, some baguette — whatever, I love it. I think I have come to love bread even more since I have made a long-term attempt to curb my ...

Thanksgiving step No. 2: Ditch the boring sides with sweet potato fries

Megan Green Stuke

I realize I'm in the minority, but I do not get excited about Thanksgiving food. I can live forever without another piece of pumpkin pie. I detest Cool Whip. All the food seems sort of mushy and brown and, well, boring. To Thanksgiving traditionalists (I'M TALKING TO YOU, MR. MEAT ...
