Italian Chickpea Salad
Serves 6 The nutty component of the beans combines with juicy tomatoes, fresh garlic, and basil to build a well-balanced salad that can also act as a stand-alone side. It’s delicious on top of a crusty bread or crackers, and done in just 10 minutes.
1 16-oz. can chickpeas
2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
½ cup minced red onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbs. shredded Parmesan cheese (omit for dairy-free)
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
1 Tbs. chopped fresh basil
1 Tbs. chopped fresh parsley
¾ tsp. salt
½ tsp. dried oregano
¼ tsp. red pepper flakes
¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1. Drain liquid from chickpeas and rinse thoroughly. Place chickpeas on two or three sheets of attached paper towels. Fold paper towels over chickpeas, pick up with your hands, and gently maneuver the chickpeas in a rubbing motion, making sure not to crush them, about 30 seconds to release skins. (Don’t worry about getting every little one, but this gets most of them.)
2. In large bowl, combine chickpeas, tomatoes, onion, garlic, Parmesan, olive oil, vinegar, basil, parsley, salt, oregano, red pepper flakes, and black pepper. Using large spoon, mix until well combined.

Broiled Dijon Salmon
For this dish, we bake then broil the salmon with a creamy, lightened-up aioli infused with mustard and fresh thyme. The aioli acts as a barrier, preventing the salmon from drying out, and as it reduces, the salmon absorbs the mustard and thyme notes. The result is a succulent piece of fish that melts in your mouth, all done in only 15 minutes.
1 lb. salmon Salt to taste, plus
½ tsp. Pepper to taste, plus

Ehrlich Speaks to Mother-Writers
Lara Ehrlich, author of the short story collection Animal Wife (Red Hen Press, 2020), has a deep narrative investment in the ways the world denies women power and agency. In October 2020 that commitment took a new shape with the first episode of her podcast, Writer Mother Monster, a much-needed balm for those of us balancing mothering and writing in the midst of a global pandemic. Aimed at dismantling the myth that women can “have it all,” her podcast is a series of interviews with mother-writers working in all genres, at varied points in their careers, who candidly discuss the joys and complications of that dual identity. Ehrlich, herself a mother-writer—her daughter turns five this year—spoke about what she has gleaned from these exchanges and how they’ve influenced her own approach.
