Every dish has a story. This lentil soup was the first soup I made from scratch. I was a senior in college, sharing a house with three good friends. We all loved to cook in our tiny kitchen. (Unfortunately, not all of us liked to clean up, but that’s another story.) I had recently purchased [...]

Gridley rocks the house by sending in our first recipe to our new site! He is a good friend and neighbor, and a good cook to boot. I keep saying he and K should invite us over to dinner– and we’d be happy to reciprocate! Here’s his awesome chicken pot pie recipe that I begged [...]
