There’s something special to this time of year when Spring has sprung and we’re seeing greens galore but also working through the very end of the winter harvests. Dinner last night inspired by the time - roasted sweet potatoes and onions, sautéed greens (combo of Dino kale and dandelion greens) and a whole roasted cauliflower smothered in spices and Parmesan cheese. ..…….................................................. What’s on your menu for this week?
Why go out for takeout when you can make it at home? Spicy orange shrimp with rice is a good one to add to my list of at home takeout meals. Definitely more rewarding when you can make your own spicy orange sauce for it! Add some mustard greens microgreens for color!👩🏻🍳😋🍊🌶🍤🍚
As a kid, I’ve always liked tuna melts. Tuna salad with melted cheese between 2 pieces of bread. Nothing fancy, just delicious. Served with baked green bean fries on the side which is another love of mine. And made a ranch wasabi sauce to go with them! What a comforting dinner 👩🏻🍳😋🍞🐟🧀
This dinner of chicken and steak pita wraps was a collaboration of different local vendors from around the area. The za’atar seasoning was from @zandzdc; the pitas from @baklavacouture; the flank steak and chicken from #copperpennyfarm; and the veggies from @fromthefarmer. Thank you for a great dinner! 👩🏻🍳😋🐔🐮🌯
Happy national grilled cheese day, everyone! My love of Croque Monsieurs was my way of honoring the day. The creamy bechamel sauce with melted cheese makes this my favorite grilled cheese sandwich! Also, thank you @dclyonbakery for the delicious tomato rosemary bread for this Croque Monsieur!👩🏻🍳😋🍞🧀
There’s something comforting about just a bowl of pasta and a bowl of salad. And seems to taste better when it’s just you eating it for dinner, with the sun setting. Add some pea shoots on top for a little color and since it’s spring! 👩🏻🍳😋💆🏻♀️🍝🥗
A colorful array of leftover veggies to turn into veggie and chicken sausage hash; just add a fried egg on top when serving. With the transitioning of seasons, it’s goodbye to the root vegetables and heavy meals! Hoping for a change in the season this week 👩🏻🍳😋🐔🥔🥕🍳
When I was in Korea many years ago, I would stop by this sandwich stand for breakfast. The owner would make these toast sandwiches with ham, eggs, cabbage slaw, ketchup, and cheese. Well, I was craving for one for dinner so I made my version from what I could recall. The bread wasn’t right and I just used what I had available, but it worked. At least the sandwich was stuffed like how she made it👩🏻🍳😋🍳🥪
Spring has sprung in the kitchen! Look for all new spring flavors this week, including our favorite: Asparagus & Swiss
Sourdough pizza dough is great to make on the weekends since I have the time. Two pizzas for two people who have different preferences for what should go on their pizza. Plus a great way to use leftover veggies and cheese! 👩🏻🍳😋🍕
Whenever there’s snow, I always want a meal that’s warm and creamy, and in a skillet. So when making chicken piccata, I added some cream to it for a richer dish. Serve on top of pasta or rice for a hearty meal after clearing and shoveling snow! Hope the snow melts most of it away today! 👩🏻🍳😋🌨☀️🐔🍋🍝
Costco was selling their rustic French bread and got me thinking for dinner to make a stuffed pasta bowl. Take the innards of the bread (save those for breadcrumbs later), add some garlic butter, slight toast it, and add broccoli and chicken Alfredo inside. Then finish baking it in the oven. Look how stuffed it is! Definitely for a carb lover! 👩🏻🍳😋🐔🥦🧀🥖
Cod en pappilote. All those beautiful orange colours and flavours! Thanks to #goodfooddelivery for the tasty recipe.
When you mix ground chicken with some basil chicken from @meatcrafters, it becomes a healthy chicken parm burger with marinara sauce and melted mozzarella. Toast up some Martin’s @potatorolls, add lettuce, and serve with roasted potatoes on the side. So good and a healthy meal! 👩🏻🍳😋🐔🍅🧀🥔🍔
What to do with leftover rice and beans? Turn it into a skillet dinner by adding some chicken, peppers, onions, salsa, corn, and cheese on top, and bake it in the oven. Garnish with tortilla strips, avocado, and micro cilantro for a quick meal! 👩🏻🍳😋🐔🍅🌽🌶🥑🍚🥘
Ever had the bang bang shrimp at Bonefish Grill? It’s a pretty good appetizer for happy hour. So I decided to combine my bang bang shrimp into a bahn mi style sandwich with some pickled veggies and bibb lettuce on @kingshawaiian rolls. Might load up more shrimp next time! 👩🏻🍳😋🍤🌶🥕🥒🍻
