Black Bean and Sweet Potato Burritos

Roll up nutition and flavor with these colorful burritos. The tasty vegan wraps starred in the first meal I made after traveling in Europe for nearly a month. I'd missed black beans and sweet potatoes as well as kale, which appears in a marinated salad with lime and raisins (recipe coming soon). This meal will boost your savings and health for your next adventure.

Roasting Okra and Shishito Peppers in a Toaster Oven

Roasted okra rocks. The complex, artichoke-like flavor shines through, enhanced by umami from the browning. The slipperiness (or sliminess) dials back to a mere sense of comfort and ease. Small shishito peppers roast at the same rate. They are one of the gambling peppers, with nine out of ten being mild but the tenth one with a mid-level of heat. This combination makes a great side dish or appetizer with drinks, but of course you can choose just one or the other.

Microwaving Corn on the Cob without the Husk

Keep your cool by microwaving corn on the cob instead of boiling it. You can even use this trick in your office or a hotel room! I scored excellent organic corn this year for just a dollar an ear. Alas, though, it came without the husks. This let me see how perfect every ear was and let my farmer compost the husks and silk. But it also meant I couldn't use the ultra-easy technique I learned from this down-home video.

What I needed was a way to steam corn without husks. I didn't remember

Slow-Cooker Ratatouille Italiano

My version of this classic rustic French eggplant and pepper stew amps up the flavor with oregano, chipotle, and black olives. Cook it with set-and-forget ease in your slow cooker. This recipe makes a lot, but you can change it up with variations below or just freeze the extra.
