things to try

Recently I’ve been running into things I’d like to try, or things I’ve already come aross that I think other people should try. Here come a couple of them.

First, some recipes that look ultra-delicious (click on the links under each photo to see the full recipe from

Pappardelle with Beef and Mushroom Ragu

Yum. Jeremy and I have been cooking with mushrooms a lot lately, and we’ve been pasta-lovers for years.

Slow-Cooker Vegetarian Chili with Sweet Potatoes

I already have a delicious veggie-chili recipe, but sweet potatoes sound like a fun twist on chili. Also, a great excuse to use the slow-cooker.

Spicy Asian Chicken with Brussels Sprouts

Spicy Asian food and Brussels sprouts in one dish? Yes, please. I’m especially excited to try this one.

On a completely unrelated (inedible) note, if you’re looking for a way to be simply delighted in the middle of the day (or any time of day, really), you should visit Jonathan Charles Wright’s blog.

I used to go here every now and then, because Jonathan (who I met through my husband at Biola) is interesting and clever, and writes very well. Jeremy and I think of him as our one friend who will probably actually become a famous writer or something (although he won’t care). Lately I’ve enjoyed reading his blog so much that I just must recommend you go there. It’s more than fun. More than entertaining. Just the best. I’m so happy it exists.
