Roasted Broccoli Crostini with Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus

Raise your hand if you need a vacation (me-me-me-me-me!). You, too, huh? I’m working extra hard this week so I can kick back as much as possible next week.

Spring Pea and Asparagus Risotto

Good morning! I’m feeling a little blinky after the three-day weekend, how about you? Like, today feels like Monday but it’s really Tuesday.

Basil Pesto Vinaigrette

This post is brought to you by DeLallo Foods. Summer is close. Can you feel it? I think it’s hiding just beyond the gray clouds that have been dampening my spirits for days.

Spinach Artichoke Enchiladas

I’m on a spinach and artichoke kick. I blame the new bar in town that offers an exceptionally tasty spinach-artichoke dip.

Frozen Blueberry Margaritas

Spring weather comes on with a vengeance in central Oklahoma, where I grew up. I miss it. I miss the way the energy crackles in the air as the warm, southern winds crash into the cooler winds from the north.

12 Affordable Meatless Meals

Good morning! I thought it would be fine to highlight some of the more affordable recipes on my blog today.

Vegan Chipotle Carrot Queso

Yeah, I would be skeptical of this cheese-less queso if I were you. Queso literally means “cheese” in Spanish, so this dip is a dairy-free, cheese-like fraud—a fraud that this dairy-eating queso lover thoroughly enjoys.

Almond Cake with Roasted Strawberries & Rhubarb on Top

This cake was originally designed to be an upside-down strawberry-rhubarb cake. I envisioned a gorgeous, glossy pink-and-ruby top, but I turned over the cake to find a shaggy-edged, brown-ish mess.

Quinoa Broccoli Slaw with Honey-Mustard Dressing

I’m seeing green! Green broccoli is only the beginning. I keep looking up for relief from this shockingly green salad only to be struck by shades of bright, fresh, springtime green outside my windows.

What’s in Season? May Produce Guide

My May produce guide is finally here! Citrus is on its way out, as are cool-weather crops like cabbage and beets.

Roasted Cauliflower and Lentil Tacos with Creamy Chipotle Sauce

Pop quiz! What is a “pulse,” in food terms? Pulses are the edible seeds of legumes, including lentils, chickpeas, dry peas and beans.

Toasted Muesli with Almonds, Coconut and Dark Chocolate

This post is brought to you by Bob’s Red Mill. Growing up, my mom wouldn’t allow any sugary cereal into the house except for the exceedingly rare box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, which we ate right out of the box like candy.

Brussels Sprouts Pizza with Balsamic Red Onions

Today, we’re celebrating Erin with pizza! Yep, the same Erin from last Friday’s panzanella salad. Like I said, we’re pals.

Erin’s Spring Panzanella with Fresh Peas and Fennel

I’d almost forgotten how much I enjoy live music. Isn’t that terrible? I just don’t keep up with shows that come through town because I don’t have a default music buddy to go with me.

Fresh Mango Salsa

Today marks five years since my first post on Cookie and Kate. This date usually passes by without much fanfare, but five years!

20 Gluten-Free Dinner Recipes

Good morning! I’m sipping from a giant mug of coffee with Cookie curled up on my feet, so we’re off to a good start.

Migas with Black Beans & Austin Restaurant Guide

Well, it’s about time! It’s been six weeks since I got back from my month of endless tacos and margaritas in Austin, Texas.

Tropical Mango Spring Rolls with Avocado-Cilantro Dipping Sauce

This post is brought to you by Dark Horse Wine. Finally! My friends and I resurrected our long-lost girls’ night last week.

11 Favorite Vegetarian Cookbooks

I have the best job in the world—this food blogging gig—but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. Juggling taxes on top of grocery shopping, recipe development, clean up (the worst), photo editing, writing, contract negotiations, web design, bookkeeping and general communications… has been a bit much this week.

Colorful Beet Salad with Carrot, Quinoa & Spinach

Man alive, yesterday was not my day. I stayed up too late the night before (will I ever learn?) and told myself I’d hit the ground running in the morning anyway.
