This salad is so unbelievably easy and it is perfect for a summer or winter meal. It is excellent alongside a piece of fish, but also stands up to a grilled steak.  I learned about this dish from one of my favorite people, Ms. Beverly (Beevis) Andrade. Beevis, amazing wife and mother of two wonderful …

This recipe is a take on the Skinnytaste Eggplant Meatballs. I added a few ingredients such as sauteed onions and garlic to mimic the way that I make meaty-meatballs, such as these baked chicken meatballs, and used panko breadcrumbs instead. I must say, they were WONDERFUL! I was a bit nervous that the mixture would be very …

This is a classic Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa) recipe. However, I kicked it up a notch and added toasted pine nuts which gave this dish a rich, earthy flavor and also added more texture. Ina, I hope you approve. You are my hero, after all.  Absent in this photo are the toasted pine nuts which …

I ate a version of these at a Greek restaurant a while back and they were truly the most delicious potatoes I’d ever had. This past week I had a bunch of extra potatoes and I decided to try and re-create the tangy, succulent potatoes that I remembered so dearly. The verdict: mouth watering lemony …

Ahh tomato soup. Creamy, tangy, calming, cozy tomato soup. I cannot imagine anything more comforting that a big cup of this tomato nectar. Best part. This is super easy and it takes only 30 min to make. Here we go…  Start by sauteing 1/2 a medium white onion in a few tablespoons of garlic over medium …

I could eat these every night. The creamy ricotta cheese with the tangy tomato sauce is just soooo scrumptious. These are also super kid-friendly, family-friendly, you friendly and me friendly. So, just make them. You won’t regret it.  First things first, for this recipe I use organic frozen spinach. Make sure that it is de-frosted …

My mother, and my grandmother before her would make this tomato sauce. Jars of it would be kept in the freezer all year round for rainy days, or sunny days or really just any day. This is incredibly easy to make and can be used in many recipes such as Zucchini Lasagna, Chicken Meatballs, or …

Winter is rounding the bend and I’m right there behind it. Christmas lights are twinkling, the smell of pine is in the air and all I want to do is spend hours in my warm little kitchen drinking mulled wine and making winter dinners.  These butternut squashes were calling my name today, and I decided …

I made this for lunch today with some grilled chicken sausages. I was tired of a boring ‘ol salad and I figured if I’m throwing stuff on the grill I might as well char some romaine and whip up a little Caesar dressing.  This dressing is SO easy to make and can be stored in …

I love turnips. The root and the greens sautéed together with garlic is one of my favorite things in the whole world. Generally, turnip greens are cooked with lots of fatty bacon, which is delicious, don’t get me wrong, but turnips and turnip greens are so rich in vitamins and minerals, it’s not worth adding …
