What Would Betty Do Logo The Perfect Summer Side

Fruit Salad Can we forget about the food pyramid for a moment? Can we ignore the fact that we’re supposed to be eating both fruitsĀ and vegetables? Because for a few short, glorious weeks in late May and early June in California, it’s all about fruit. Ever since last weekend when we picked 14 pounds of […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Tabouli, Tabbouli, Tabbouleh

Bulgur and Parsley Salad After my seemingly endless quest for curly parsley (not cilantro, Helpful Produce Department Guy), I found myself in possession of a lot of parsley. What on earth do you do with that much parsley? The answer is tabouli. Or tabbouli. Or however you spell it. Ingredients 1 cup bulgur, cooked according […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Arancini di Riso (Risotto Balls)

I always make too much risotto. Always. I think that part of me figures that if I’m going to put all that effort into tending to its creation, we’re all going to eat a ton. Nope. Never happens.

I was at a loss for what to do with the leftover rotisserie chicken that I’d bought at Costco. Sure, we could have burritos, but was there any way to do it differently with what I had on hand? Evidently so. The answer was Mexican(ish) lasagna. Ingredients Leftover rotisserie chicken, shredded 1 bottle mild taco […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Try Something New: Roast Bison

We would go to Betty’s for dinner every Sunday night. The meal was always the same: roast beef. Every. Single. Week. A few weeks ago, I was chatting with my friendly local butcher about the general absence of bison. He explained that it didn’t typically sell well, but that he’d give it another go and […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Caprese Pasta Salad

I love tomatoes. To me, there’s no better part of summer than eating sun-warmed tomatoes right from the vine. Of course, some people actually want their tomatoes to be part of something bigger, like an actual recipe, and caprese salad is a classic example. But you can’t really do a classic caprese with the 4 […] Read More
