To make this cozy Tomato Cobbler with Gluten-Free Drop Biscuits, I used diced, canned tomatoes with Garlic, Basil, and Olive Oil. I love how much flavor they have, and their plump, juicy texture. Simmered with onions, celery, and a little butter (always!), the tomatoes make the perfect nest for the biscuits.
As some of you may know, seven months ago I made the decision to start fostering cats and kittens for a local no-kill shelter. I’ve learned a lot, but have so much to learn as well. Some things have been intuitive, others have surprised me, specifically with introducing cats to humans and new felines. Above all, their senses are very critical in how they determine safety, so I’ve learned it’s best to approach each sense on its own, one at a time. I’ve come to learn how eating together is actually an amazing way to help them acclimate with each other, and I’m sharing details on how that works, and tips on the transition for resident and new cats.

You’re probably familiar with a classic seven layer dip, the one with salsa, refried beans, and guacamole, right? It’s good! But I was looking for a fresh twist, when I found this Mediterranean hummus version in A Couple Cooks new cookbook, Pretty Simple Cooking (more on why I love the book below). It’s everything I was hoping for. Colorful, flavorful, and whole
A gluten-free brownie for chocolate lovers. The perfect texture, made with teff flour and topped with a two ingredient, vegan chocolate ganache. They’re irresistible! And no mixer required. With step-by-step video included.
These Instant Pot Pinto Beans are all about flavoring from the inside out, and topping with Mexican inspired ingredients like pickled red onion, cilantro, red pepper flakes, and creme fraiche or sour cream. Like this, they’d make a great side dish, or top with an egg and make it breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I also use the beans throughout the week for making burritos and tacos.
