Thai ginger-peanut deviled eggs

As embarrassing as it is to admit, I have yet to crack the code on hard-boiled eggs. I’m no good at making them. I undercook or overdo them every single time. That’s why I talked Joel (an eggspert) into hard-boiling all of my eggs for me — and why I’ll leave you to your Googling or your phone calls to Mom to seek out your own hard-boiling techniques. But the Thai ginger-peanut filling? That I can bring to the table.

These meatballs were super tender and juicy, and the sauce was to die for. I served mine on a bed of big basil leaves. Overkill, perhaps. But I'm in summer withdrawal.

Slow-cooker chicken tikka masala

I cut up the chicken and mixed the sauce the night before so I could just toss all the ingredients in the slow-cooker the next morning. What could be better than having lunch (or dinner) ready and waiting? Especially when it makes your apartment smell like the best and coziest Indian restaurant.

Ginger-soy pork chops

I don’t cook a whole lot of meat, but when I do, I gravitate toward pork. Joel and I made these pork chops for a pre-Valentine’s Day dinner, and we loved the way they paired with a side of tangy roasted broccoli (Recipe coming Friday!). Bonus: No garlic breath!

Matcha-ginger soda with lemon

It’s the perfect soda for the Lunar New Year! Matcha green tea powder is a finely milled tea that has great antioxidant properties. Paired with the ginger, this combination makes for one sparkly, Asian-inspired drink.

Quinoa and black beans with pomegranate salsa

This dish was the direct result of being forced to stay indoors for about three days straight and NOT wanting to spend those days in a pasta coma. Like much of the rest of the country, Chicago was buried in snow and below-freezing temperatures for a few days this month. With just enough pantry staples and plenty of time to think, I came up with a surprising and very tasty meal.

Gingerbread pancakes

These weren’t as sweet as I was expecting, probably because I pictured eating a gingerbread cookie in pancake form, but I loved them as a canvas for the orange syrup and whipped cream. Aunt Kay’s original recipe topped them with homemade shaker applesauce and pure maple syrup.

Oatmeal provides an awesome morning canvas if you wake up feeling creative.  I had leftover pumpkin puree in my refrigerator and my wheels just started turning from there.
