Vegan Ranch Dressing

Vegan Ranch Dressing

Confession: I’ve fallen into a bit of a junk food snacking rut over the last few weeks. Is it my imagination or are the snack food aisles at the supermarket really so much better this time of year? I may have gotten a little carried […]

Baked Falafel Pie

Baked Falafel Pie

Hi! Welcome to This Wife Cooks! Today, we’re making falafel pie. We’re starting with a base of oven baked falafel and layering it with hummus, tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, kalamata olives, and Mediterranean-style feta. Then we add the final touch – tzatziki sauce – to round […]

Vegetarian Greek-Style Chicken Salad

Vegetarian Greek-Style Chicken Salad

My big plan for this meal was to serve the salad in pitas but pita bread can be very finicky and will tear it you look at it the wrong way. Fortunately, I only destroyed two pieces before moving on to my backup plan of […]

Radish and Cucumber Salad with Dill Yogurt Dressing

Radish and Cucumber Salad with Dill Yogurt Dressing

Our weekly CSA box arrived yesterday and in it was an ingredient I don’t think I had ever cooked with before — radishes. What in the world was I going to do with radishes?! I didn’t even think I liked them but, after the success […]

Classic Coleslaw

Classic Coleslaw

To me, coleslaw is a perfect addition to any summertime cookout and was delicious paired with our BBQ Baked Beans last week.  What I like about this one is that the cabbage retains just the right amount of crunch and flavor because it’s not drenched […]

Easy Bleu Cheese Dressing

Easy Bleu Cheese Dressing

Last night’s dinner was served with a salad of mixed greens, pepper jack cheese, red grapes, and Bleu cheese dressing.  The salad may sound like an odd combination but it was delicious and really paired well with our steak seasoned couscous wraps. 1/8c milk 1c […]

Bang Bang Cauliflower

Bang Bang Cauliflower

The weather here has just been too perfect to not sit outside at dinnertime so that’s what we did again yesterday.  I never noticed before but it’s true that the taste and texture of cooked cauliflower is very similar to that of shrimp.  I’ve made […]
