Friends with benefits, or how I got to roast a leg of lamb

Megan Green Stuke

I know the very best people. I know you think you do, but you're wrong. Because I do. So there. So, one of the people I know that falls into that "best" category is my friend Lynnette. And Lynnette just happens to be the daughter of some more "best" people: ...

Summer on a plate: strawberry and kale salad

Megan Green Stuke

This is summer. This is what it should taste like: Fresh, bright but a little earthy, too. Food that is meant to be eaten outside, in the sunshine, next to a body of water. A beloved neighbor recently moved across town, far away from us, so we had a little ...

Cooking by the book

Megan Green Stuke

So, it turns out I'm not very organized at home. I am so organized at work, but all of those skills get used up there and the home life gets the dregs at the bottom of the organizational barrel. At least, that is what I'm telling myself. Recently, I paid ...

Nice day for white wedding cupcakes

Megan Green Stuke

I have now, twice in my life, made over 200 cupcakes at one time. Apparently making 200 cupcakes is a service I offer. I am not a great baker. I have never claimed to be a great baker. But somehow, I find myself in this place with increasing frequency. Next ...

Cookie cups for kids

Megan Green Stuke

Sometimes you just need dessert. At my house, it's not often. No one is that into sweets. We'd all like an extra helping of mashed potatoes, thankyouverymuch, but it's not hard for us to pass on pie or pastry. But, still, I have a 4-year-old. And sometimes the kid just ...

Pizza bread a crowd favorite

Megan Green Stuke

So this is one of my go-to things for A) when I don't know what else to make or B) when my husband is watching sports with friends and I want them to be happy so I can watch trashy reality TV upstairs by myself. It has as many names ...

Homemade ramen bowls from your slow cooker!

Megan Green Stuke

I'm all over the ramen thing. It's flooded with irony, because for all of the "poor college kid" eating I did (read: loads of hot dogs and mac and cheese and frozen burritos), I never did ramen. Not once. I proudly abstained, though I'm not sure why, in retrospect. My ...

No soup casserole — it can be done!

Megan Green Stuke

When I started this clean eating project, I made a few solemn vows to myself. First, I vowed that no matter if I strayed and accidentally ate a bag of Doritos, I would come back and recover. In Weight Watchers, they used to use a car analogy: if you wake ...

Four cheese noodles, because three cheeses just aren't enough.

Megan Green Stuke

I like to see how tasty I can make things even when I'm on the dieting wagon. I mean, a girl cannot live on salad alone, and sometimes you still want a plate of pasta or a cream sauce, so it's kind of a fun game to me to see ...

Orange noodles are slurpy fun for dinner

Megan Green Stuke

I usually say I don't like pork tenderloin. I have had relatively poor results from the tubular meat in the Cryovac packaging in the past, plus I am just sort of freaked out by the look of it in general. Still, it was on sale the other day, and I ...
