Roasted vegetable pizza a quick dinner solution

Megan Green Stuke

Pizza is a fallback dinner at our house. When the cupboard is bare, I can still almost always pull together some sort of pizza-like concoction that pleases everyone and also uses up the random leftovers languishing in my refrigerator. Pizza, in my mind, doesn't always have to have red sauce ...

Hasselback potatoes not much hassle at all

Megan Green Stuke

Steak night at our house is a big affair and we don't like to mess around. We want all the sides and fixin's, and we like to be a little inventive about it so we don't get bored. Everyone loves a good baked potato, but I'm always looking for ways ...

Roasted corn and jalapeno salsa for a taste of summer

Megan Green Stuke

Summer is almost here, and I'm starting to seek out the tastes and colors of warm weather. Winter food tends to be full of browns and oranges, and while those things represent deliciousness like roast beef and pumpkin pie, as summer approaches I start seeking colorful and vibrant food — ...

Albondigas for Monday Tapas

Megan Green Stuke

Meatball Monday is a "thing" at our house. I don't do it every Monday, but I do it regularly enough that I like to try to change things up so as to avoid a meatball slump. In an effort to be mindful of our health, I try to use leaner ...

Rustic beet panzanella

Megan Green Stuke

If you have never had Limestone Pizza's Warm Beet and White Bean Salad, you should rectify that immediately. It is a beautiful winter salad that I would happily eat any time of year. It's vibrant in taste and color, and it's filling, so the name "salad" hardly does it justice. ...

Mustard, mashed potatoes and March Madness

Megan Green Stuke

March is a very special month in Lawrence, and I'm not just talking about basketball. The venerable Free State Brewing Co. also hosts its annual March Mustard Madness event wherein hundreds of different kinds of mustard are trucked in and trotted out to your table to sample in myriad ways. ...

Sesame steak rice bowls a quick, nutritious lunch or dinner

Megan Green Stuke

I make rice bowls regularly because they come together quickly and can really utilize whatever ingredients are waiting in your refrigerator or pantry. Chicken, steak, shrimp, pork — all work in a rice bowl. Or you can forgo the meat altogether and make a really tasty vegetarian dish with some ...

Girl Scout Cookie Pie

Megan Green Stuke

We all love Girl Scout cookies, right? So this is a wonderful time of year when sweet shining faces appear at our doors with boxes of goodness wrapped in community love. I have some friends who work for the Girl Scouts, and they had the great idea to use some ...
