Peanut Butter Yum Yum Bombs

Megan Green Stuke

Generally, I can live without peanut butter, and I can live without chocolate. I know, I know. I'm not normal. Take away my woman card. It's unholy. I get it. However, at holiday time, I get an urge for what I like to call Peanut Butter Yum Yum Bombs, and ...

Cute peppermint cocoa jars make great small gift

Megan Green Stuke

I have a new(ish) job at The Willow Domestic Violence Center. It is a great transition for me and I get to do fun things mostly about talking to and training willing and amazing volunteers all day long. I like to try to keep those volunteers happy. They work really ...

Three fun ways to update the shrimp cocktail

Megan Green Stuke

We all love shrimp cocktail, right? Extra spicy/horseradish-y? I don't care if the 1970s called and want their appetizer back — it's delicious. And it's easy and everyone at your party will eat their weight in it. The bonus is that it's even healthy, which is not something we can ...

Winter tortellini soup solves sad lunch problems

Megan Green Stuke

Soup is so awesome, right? I can make a vat of it for little money, it's warm and soul satisfying, and so easy, particularly when there is a slow cooker involved. I'm so busy these days and packing my own lunch, while financially desirable, is often a real bummer. I ...

Fried Tofu with Awesome Sauce. It's not turkey!

Megan Green Stuke

The minute Thanksgiving is over, the switch is flipped and I want to start eating things that have spice, color and are the dead opposite of the rich, creamy, salty foods of the holiday. Lately, I've been on a tofu kick. I know, I know. But here's the deal — ...

The Ultimate Turkey Sandwich

Megan Green Stuke

I teach informal cooking classes to my friends once in awhile, and recently we decided that we needed to go over some Thanksgiving basics before the big event occurred. One friend is newly married and one is visiting her fairly new boyfriend's family for the holiday, and both wanted to ...

Individual beef pot pies are fun fall fare

Megan Green Stuke

Apparently I should write a whole book on "Creative Ways to Use Up a Roast" because lately it's been happening often. I buy a roast or two on sale, slow cook them, and then eat them for days, trying desperately to reinvent them into new dishes so we don't all ...

Warm kale salad makes for great winter fare

Megan Green Stuke

As the weather cools and we look to comfort foods and slow cookers, I start to worry (more than usual, which is rather a lot) about my winter pounds. How can I get that satisfying, warm comfort food feeling without eating my way through mac and cheese and roast beef ...

Candy corn makes a cute cookie

Megan Green Stuke

Candy corn has the worst rap. Of all the Halloween candies, it is up there with Bit-O-Honey for most reviled seasonal treat. But I seriously don't get it. I love the stuff, particularly when it's mixed up with peanuts or other salty goodness. My kids love it too, bless their ...

Green tea makes pork chops flavorful and unique

Megan Green Stuke

Pork chops, while delicious, often end up either really boring or REALLY fattening. I mean, I love a breaded and fried chop with gravy and taters as much as the next person, but we can't be eating like that more than, say, once a year, right? So in an effort ...
