Hi friends! We weren’t able to get a fresh episode together for you this week so we’re rerunning a show we love from back in January 2017. The carrot ginger dressing we talk about is one that we both still love, and the nut bread Joy shared is a great one for these cold winter days (because we all need a little extra warmth these days!).
We’ll be back next week with a new show! Stay well!
Up first this week isn’t a dose of food news, but instead is a conversation about where we’ve been lately. Between Marisa’s book tour schedule, the cold we passed back and forth, and some family stuff, we weren’t able to find time to record in May. But now we’re back and hope to be for some time to come!
In What’s for Dinner, we talked turkey. Meatloaf, that is. It was one of the things that Marisa made to leave behind for Scott when she dashed through town and never fails her. One interesting difference between Joy and Marisa’s meatloaf techniques is that Joy always bakes hers on a cookie sheet, while Marisa is devoted to a loaf pan.
In How Do You Make That, Joy walks us through the slightly sweet but decidedly savory Japanese rolled omelet that she’s been making on repeat lately. The recipe comes from Melissa Clark’s Dinner: Changing the Game (which is also the Edible Communities book club pick for June!).
We were both recently in Santa Fe for a conference and shared some of our food experiences from that trip.
And finally, in what we’re loving, Marisa has a weird one. She’s really digging watered down fruit juice. It’s probably a pregnancy thing (because fizzy water gives her heartburn, she’s using plain water), but they are really hitting the spot these days.
In our What’s For Dinner segment, Marisa talks through the recipe for braised chicken, green peppers, onions and tomatoes that she made recently. It’s one her mom used to make and tasted like childhood to her.
In How’d You Make That, Joy shares a roasted lemon relish she made recently as a way of using up some organic lemons that were going south.
Then we talked about making treats and other kitchen staples to stock the freezer.
Finally, in What We’re Loving, it’s all about ranch dressing.
Hi friends! You may have noticed that things have been a little quiet around here. We had every intention of picking the show back up with the new year, but life has gotten in our way a bit.
Marisa has been down with a cold since December 30 and Joy has had some family stuff going on that requires the bulk of her attention. We hope to be back with the show by January 23, but we’re not making any promises. Thank you for being so patient with us.
In the meantime, may we suggest that you check out the ebook we published around this time last year? Resolution Recipes is a collection of plant-based, make ahead dishes that will help you eat well in the new year.
In our “What’s for Dinner” segment, we talk about the yogurt flatbreads from the new Milk Street Tuesday Nights cookbook. They are excellent, as is the entire book.
In our “How’d You Make That?” segment, Joy talks us through the batch of meatballs she made recently that contained nearly no meat, but were entirely delicious.
Next, we talked about some of the little things you can start doing now to help get yourself ready for Thanksgiving (we realize it’s six weeks away, but a little prep now will prevent madness come November).
And in What We’re Loving this week, we share our mutual love of plastic deli containers.
Happy New Year, dear listeners! We hope that this fresh, new year treats you all gently and deliciously. To help with the delicious part, we’ve put together a short digital cookbook that we’re calling Resolution Recipes.
This 12 recipe publication is bursting with tasty plant-based dishes designed to help you eat well throughout 2018. These are some of our basic recipes that we make on Saturday or Sunday so that we can make good, healthy choices throughout the week. Hopefully they’ll do the same for you.
