Asparagus Salad

Each year, I make this asparagus salad recipe to celebrate the arrival of spring…which, in Chicago, is usually later than you'd think. See, in all the years that we've lived here, it's snowed on Jack's April birthday. So when we have the odd warm day in March or early April, I don't get my hopes up. "Winter isn't over yet," I tell myself, "Don't get used to this." But this year, Jack's birthday arrived…and it didn't snow. It was still a little chilly, but the air smelled clean and fresh, and tulips and daffodils bloomed around the neighborhood. Dare I […]

Quick Pickled Radishes

If you opened my fridge right now, you'd see jars upon jars of these quick pickled radishes lined up inside. They're so pretty and pink that it's almost a shame to eat them. I love the vibrant patterns the radishes create against the glass, all those circles and stripes. The natural beauty of these humble root veggies never ceases to amaze me. Still, eat them I will. Tangy, salty, and delightfully crisp, they're an addictive snack or topping for toast, tacos, bowls, burgers, salads…just about anything you like! This pickled radish recipe is easy to make (the fridge does most […]

Artichoke Dipping Sauce

Is it just me, or is half the fun of eating artichokes the sauce you serve with them? This artichoke dipping sauce recipe has been a favorite of ours lately. It's creamy, rich, and tangy, a perfect savory accent for the bright, nutty artichoke leaves and heart. It's easy to make (you only need 7 ingredients, and one of them's pepper!), and it comes together in a fraction of the time it takes to cook artichokes. Sit back and relax while they steam, and whip up the artichoke dipping sauce right before you eat! Artichoke Dipping Sauce Recipe Ingredients You […]

How to Cook Artichokes

A few years back, when I saw a fresh artichoke at the farmers market for the first time, I knew immediately that I'd be taking it home. It was so pretty, with its tightly packed petals and thick stem tinged with purple. How could I resist it? But when I got back to the house, I realized that I had one tiny problem….I had no clue how to cook artichokes. That spring, I passed off the artichoke prep to my mom, who happened to be visiting (thanks, Mom!), but since then, I've mastered how to cook artichokes myself. I wanted to […]

Last fall, I created the Love & Lemons Cooking Club to celebrate our wonderful community of readers. It's super simple – each month, I choose a recipe. You make it, and you email me a photo.

Simple Green Salad

We all need a good green salad recipe in our back pocket…which is why I can't believe that in almost 10(!) years of blogging, I haven't shared a simple green salad until today. That's not to say that there's a shortage of salad recipes on the site (broccoli salad, pasta salad, or avocado salad, anyone?). But it has been missing a quick, refreshing salad that you can toss together at the last minute and serve with almost anything. Well, let me introduce you to my favorite green salad recipe. It's simple, but it doesn't skimp at all on texture or […]

What's not to love about breakfast potatoes? They're crispy on the outside, creamy in the middle, and seasoned to perfection with smoky, savory spices.

You'll find my easy breakfast potatoes recipe below. It's a standby in our house – I make it whenever I'm cooking brunch, whether it's for my whole family or just Jack and me. I offer two variations in the recipe. In one, you just roast […]

Carrot Salad

This carrot salad recipe is one of my new favorites. I love it because it's so simple (really, you can make it in 15 minutes or less), so vibrant, and so delicious. Crisp carrot matchsticks mingle with nutty pistachios, fresh cilantro, and mint. Medjool dates add sweetness, and a cumin-spiced dressing ties it all together. This carrot salad recipe would be a stunning side dish for a special occasion brunch or dinner, and it packs up nicely for lunch or a picnic too. Most often, though, I eat it at the counter, scooping forkful after forkful straight from the bowl. […]

How to Julienne Carrots

Learning how to julienne carrots might seem fussy, but if you like cooking with vegetables, this simple French technique will serve you well. It's a fantastic example of how the way you cut a vegetable can totally transform its character. While whole carrots are hard and stocky, julienned ones are crisp and delicate. They're a great way to add crunch and sweet, earthy flavor to all sorts of dishes. Toss them into stir fries, tuck them into a wrap, or sprinkle them on a salad! How to Julienne Carrots with a Peeler Most often, I julienne carrots in one of two […]
