gazpacho I posted last week or eating pho at a neighborhood Vietnamese place, there's just something I find comforting about making a light soup the center of a meal. So when I found a packet of halibut in the back of our freezer from our Alaska vacation last summer, I knew a chowder was in order.

Have you ever been thinking about a recipe all day, and when you finally get home and review your recipe notes, you discover that the recipe requires a lengthy marinading time? Yeah, that just happened. I knew I was craving the herby-citrusy-slightly-sweet pork tenderloin, so what's a girl to do?

I love Chinese food, but always feel a minor sense of shame when I see the number of fortune cookies they include with my meal - five as of our last order. FIVE fortune cookies? Do you think we ordered enough food for FIVE whole people? (It's just the husband and I.) Well, to be fair... you might have a point.
30 grease-filled minutes later, I'm stuffed full and yet know that I'll be eating cold lo mein noodles in front of the fridge a few hours down the road. It's habit forming. So, in an effort to make our indulgence a little lighter - and truthfully, to use up a lot of cabbage and carrots from our CSA - I set out to make a few different recipes.
