I think it’s time to declare February as Bean Month, at least in the LKBF kitchen. Don’t worry, I already confirmed that there is no conflict with an actual National Bean celebration. The closest holiday is National Baked Bean month, and that’s all the way in July. For some reason, we’ve been on a bean [...]
Tis the season for a big-ol’ hearty bowl of chili. But for some reason, I’m just not a huge fan of the traditional tomato-based, ground beef and big red kidney bean kind of chili. Maybe it’s because I’ve never found a beefy chili recipe that I’ve really enjoyed. Or maybe it’s because I still have [...]
Lately, I feel like I could eat pizza for dinner every night. And, that’s a good thing because we sure have been eating our fair share of it. With this extensive DIY house renovation taking place, there has been some serious take-out food happening at the LKBF abode. One day I’m writing [...]
You know that saying “you are what you eat”? Well, I’m pretty sure for a short while there, I might have almost been a bagel. To say that I ate them a lot would be a gross understatement. More like I ate them pretty much daily for breakfast, lunch, and sometimes dinner. I wish I [...]
Isn’t it crazy how the weather so closely relates to the foods we crave and cook? I’m not just talking about the ingredients that are in season, although they definitely play a major role in the food that we choose to eat. I’m talking about what we crave internally. During the summer it’s all [...]

So, even though we get a ton of seasonal vegetables through our weekly CSA share, Mr. Big Flavors still thought it was appropriate to buy even more fresh produce at the local farmers market. Needless to say our refrigerator is currently overflowing with seasonal ingredients. He came home with eggplant, broccoli, both a purple and orange head [...]
1. I wish days were more than 24 hours long.
2. If only I had a third arm.
Ok, so everybody should be raising their hand right now. Personally, I think these two things at least once a week. It [...]
I’ve had chicken waldorf on the brain for about 2 weeks now. There’s this little deli near work that Mr. Big Flavors and I eat at about once a week. Sue’s Deli, it’s called. And while I tend to love all of the items on their menu (avocado wrap, black [...]
Are you ready for some football? Because this girl certainly is. And, not just football, but everything else that comes along with it. For this family, Sunday is not just about football, but also about obsessively checking fantasy football stats, snacking on some great food and just generally being lazy. A day when not [...]
