Oh for all things yum. If you’re looking for a warm, yet light, fresh weeknight meal idea look no further, friends. These bowls right here are the whole shebang.
Let’s start with the tahini sauce. If you have even the slightest relationship with hummus this stuff will knock your socks off. I eat it on everything. I mean everything. From green salad dressing to veggie dip to burger topping to sweet potato fry dunking. Tart and garlicky and creamy and oh my golly I just can’t get enough. Continue reading
So really, dinners have been about as quick and effortless as ever around here for the last few weeks. You too? Getting back into a school routine can be challenging for everyone involved so easy breezy meals help out a ton while trying to get everything else in order. So heres a quick success from this week: Sheet Pan Chicken + Veggie Ranch Wraps. Continue reading
Boy oh boy it’s been a while. How was your long weekend? As I told you last time we chatted, we took a little road trip to visit my family down in Iowa and Nebraska and I couldn’t have asked for a better way to close out the summer. It was time so well spent…with my parents, my siblings and their families. Late nights, early mornings, donuts, happy kiddo giggles, mama’s homecooking, pool parties, coffee, pedicures…I mean it was just plain wonderful. And now…school begins! What a way to head into a new year, hearts full as all get out.
And as you may know, somehow, magically, each year as summer begins to slip away my seasonal cooking-brain goes right with it. It’s incredible how it happens so organically. Suddenly I begin craving warm food….my tummy just begins to tire a bit of all of the cool, crisp, fresh fare. So this dish right here is just a lovely way to begin the transition….it’s warm and comforting, yet still light and fresh. Continue reading
Oye. One-Pan Chicken Philly Pitas with Sriracha Mayo. Thats a mouthful. They’re a mouthful. Happy mouthful to you, my dears!
These types of “sheet pan meals” are all over this here interweb these days. The plot: put it all on a sheet pan, bake it and eat it. Clever, no? Makes a great story for a quick weeknight meal. Continue reading
Monday, you’re back. Back to rushing home to get dinner on the table, no? Man that can be such a lame feeling. So let me give you a little hookup to make that process a bit easier this week: Pan Seared Salmon with Quick Dill Yogurt Sauce.
You can have this one on the table in less than 15-hows that for quick? All the salmon needs about 8-10 minutes on the stove. Total score. Continue reading
This is something I make fairly often and realized just this week that I have yet to share the recipe with you. You’ll have it on the table in the blink of an eye and it may be devoured just as quickly, too.
This Tomato Basil Cream Chicken is the perfect dish for those times when you are wanting yummy tomato flavor but are unable to get your hands on delicious, home-grown varieties. Store-purchased roma tomatoes are all you need-sounds blah, no? But let me just tell you how this whole deal works…I’m sure I can convince you to get the “blah” out of your brain… Continue reading
How was the weekend? It’s officially spring, friends..congratulations..you’ve made it! I’m feeling awfully grateful that ‘technical’ winter is behind us…now if we could just get these temps (and random bouts of snow) out of the equation.
So with spring comes lighter food, which I am feeling so ready for. You know I’m all about soups, stews and gratins but there comes a point in time when a change of food is in order…and around here our changes in food tend to come and go with the seasons. Continue reading
I’ve totally got the hook up here, you guys. There’s a lot of entraining to be done this time of year, so here you go. Look no further. Continue reading
Ladies and Gentleman of the Delicious Food Nation please rise…
We are gathered here today to witness the union of Roasted Chicken, Pomegranate Relish and Tahini Sauce in holy matrimony, which is an honorable estate, that is not to be entered into lightly, but reverently and soberly. Well, if you want to pair it with a fine white wine that would be okay. Continue reading
Any recollection of this Brady Bunch episode where Peter is obsessed with imitating other people? His Humphrey Bogart rocked. Pork chaaapssh and applesaush. And isn’t it so normal how Carol greets Mike at the door so charismatically with that dress and heels on? That’s EXACTLY what it’s like when my husband gets home from work. Minus the dress and plus some sweatpants. Minus the heels and plus bare feet. And plus screaming kids climbing on me. And usually, hair that’s made it through half of the day but has retired to a top knot because food has somehow nestled it’s way into every strand. But other than that, it’s the EXACT same.
