We had the luck of being asked to tag-along on a rafting trip over our kids’ fall beak a few weeks ago. We floated a section of the San Juan River and soaked up the very last of summer. We are novice rafters, but were able to offer our services in the food department. Below… Read more »
It’s been awhile since we’ve done one of these posts, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing since it forces me to share only the best recipes we’ve tried lately. The first one is for omnivores, but all the rest are solidly vegetarian (and even vegan in some instances).
Cooking for van life is similar to camping, but has its own unique challenges. The van we rented had a very small fridge (you can read more about the experience here), so we had to choose our refrigerated items with care. Below, I’m featuring the four dinners we made in the van. They were all… Read more »
Here at Dirty Dish Club, we love the outdoors. A lot of our best food has been inspired by our adventures. Like many of you, big adventures got put on pause due to the pandemic. With the ability for our adults to get vaccinated though, the possibilities began to open up again and we began… Read more »
Hello! It’s been awhile since we’ve done one of these posts. We’ve been busy with then end of school and then busy with all things summer. Here are some of the highlights of things we’ve eaten these last two months. This has been a season of quick meals hardly worth mentioning and celebratory gatherings (thanks,… Read more »
It’s about time I did another meal round-up. Here are some of the things we’ve eaten recently.
This week we’ve got the whole gamut: traditional Easter dinner complete with ham, veggie burgers, epic s’mores, and a vegan dinner.
I am so excited that it’s getting warm enough to camp again! Below are the meals we ate for our most recent backpacking trip – a three day, two night affair in Canyonlands.
We start the next dish details round-up with a meal you’ve already seen here before. (Full disclosure, I am eating a microwaved chimichanga from the freezer section while I type this. Not all our meals are well-rounded or glamorous.)
Earth Day Giveaway!
Happy Earth Day! You may have caught onto the vibe that we have a few hippie tendencies. What can we say, we’re soft on the outside, but crunchy on the inside. In honor of Earth Day I’d like to share some of our favorite ways to “go green” in the kitchen.
Golden Oreos With Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting
We were recently lucky enough to be singled out by a fun little virus that sent several in our family reeling through all the symptoms treatable by Pepto Bismol. Suffice it to say, food didn’t really sound good for awhile. As we’ve slowly returned to normal life and regained our appetites, these cookies were one… Read more »
High Altitude Cherry Vanilla Cake
A few years back Noel had an opportunity to work in DC for a month. His company was sending employees back East for a month at a time and we lucked out to get the rotation during the peak of cherry blossom season. During the day, our young son and I explored the museums and… Read more »
Bell Pepper Salsa
Today is the official first day of spring and even though the weather forecast hasn’t seemed to take notice and is predicting snow this weekend, it makes me happy that some sort of authoritative entity has officially declared winter over. (My heart has been declaring the same thing for weeks now, but I apparently have less… Read more »
Spinach, Feta, and Sun-dried Tomato Scrambled Eggs
About a year ago Audrey and I were at a little diner on a pier having breakfast while our children were over a thousand miles away eating breakfast with their grandparents. Nobody threw food on the floor or climbed on the table. The special that day was these scrambled eggs with spinach, feta, and sun-dried… Read more »
Sneaky Whole Wheat Pie Crust
Pi(e) day was Friday and as with any other good food holiday, we had to indulge. I tried my hand at a coconut cream pie and it was just as delicious as it was pretty. I was feeling pretty smug about it and the fact that I slipped whole wheat into it undetected didn’t curb my ego… Read more »
How to Have a Romantic Dinner at Home When you Have Small Children
Today is our seventh wedding anniversary. Right now our kids are two and almost four and we’re discovering it isn’t always easy to find a babysitter. We don’t live close to family, we tend to run out of favors from friends quickly with all our appointments related to our son’s recently diagnosed ASD, and the two… Read more »
Crusty Sourdough Bread with Whole Wheat Variation
Being on a diet where bread isn’t allowed sounds like a fate worse than death. If for some reason a legitimate medical need to avoid bread arose quite the conundrum would ensue. In Happy Tummy vs Toast, toast would likely prevail. Even up against something like “excruciating pain” toast might still win if it was… Read more »
Natural Sugar Cookies with Lemon Raspberry Icing
Sugar cookies can be very deceptive. They often fall in two categories, the ones that are all looks and no personality and the ones that actually taste good, but are a bit homely. Many a time, I have foolishly fallen for the good looking sugar cookie at a party. And no this isn’t code for… Read more »
Whole Wheat Nutella Pop Tarts
Happy World Nutella Day! We’re likely going celebrate tonight by whipping up some Gooey Chocolate Pudding Cakes that we’ll top with whipped cream and gobble up while we watch the finale of the Biggest Loser on Hulu. A bit hypocritical? Perhaps . . .
