I’m not sure what to sing the praises of first with this dish. Is it the soba noodles? Quick to prepare, made from buckwheat and wheat and high in protein. Or maybe the kale? Packed with vitamins, iron and antioxidants, I can’t be more in love with a leafy vegetable than this. But, I’m going […]

Pasta with Tomato, Eggplant & Zucchini

Cavatappi Amatriciana | A Carrabba's Recipe Redo

April 25, 2011

Carrabba’s is one of our favorite guilty pleasures. It was introduced to me by my in-laws. We seem to default to a Carrabba’s dinner about 50% of the time when the Crane family gets together for an evening out.

Tomato Goat Cheese Penne | Manic Monday

March 7, 2011

I have the privilege of working from my home office most days. While this means that I don’t need to battle the insane Atlanta rush hour traffic, it also means that I cook lunch on those days when I am at home (it’s also a by product of being a vegetarian). Lunchtime is always a […]
