vegetarian chili

Vegetarian Chili

One-pot vegetarian chili is the perfect comfort meal to make, eat, and repeat all winter long. This simple dish is hearty, flavorful, and wholesome, and it could not be easier to make. Perhaps the best part, this chili recipe is loaded with plant-based protein, from red kidney beans and black beans, so you won’t even […]

soy glazed beef fillet

Soy Glazed Beef Fillet With Shiitakes

Easy dinner alert. This soy-glazed beef fillet is a lovely, Asian-inspired, dish that should be in your recipe arsenal if you’re a meat eater. A tender fillet of beef and flavorful shiitake mushrooms complement one another perfectly, with a prep-and-forget marinade I adore. A quick sear on high heat makes for a simple finish minutes before […]

braised snapper with Puttanesca

Oven Braised Snapper with Puttanesca

This oven-braised snapper with Puttanesca is a wonderful dish for fish lovers. I have blogged about Puttanesca already, but this version is a little different and not served with pasta. I found this lovely recipe in Fine Cooking and adapted it slightly, but the original one can be seen here. As many know, Spaghetti alla puttanesca […]

beef with broccoli

Beef With Broccoli

Beef with broccoli reminds me of my childhood. My mom never made it from scratch, but we ordered it often when we ordered Chinese food and it remains, to this day, a favorite. And while this beloved Chinese-American dish graces the menu of almost every Chinese restaurant I’ve been to over the years, I never […]

Puttanesca

Spaghetti Alla Puttanesca

Spaghetti alla Puttanesca and I go way back; to culinary school, to be exact. Without getting into too many details, let me just say it involved cooking for the schools restaurant, an all-nighter (to which I blame, my now husband for) and the last minute suggestion he made for me to run this flavorful classic as […]

Pan seared rib eye

Pan Seared Rib Eye With Radicchio And Mushrooms

The key to extra-juicy rib eye steaks, according to chef Renee Erickson, of the restaurant formally known as, Boat Street Café in Seattle, is to “baste them with butter while they sear“. That is what I learned in culinary school and why this pan seared rib eye recipe was a must-make recipe for me when […]

tortilla soup

Chicken Tortilla Soup

Soup is good for the soul they say and I believe it. Chicken tortilla soup is one of the most representative dishes of the Mexican gastronomy and it’s one I’ve loved for ages. Also known as “sopa azteca“, which means “soup of the Aztecs,” the exact origin of this famous soup is unknown, although many assume […]

chickpea veggie burger

Chickpea Veggie Burger With Sriracha Mayo

It’s no secret, I’ve blogged about my love for a great veggie burger before. But this time, it’s different. This is my chickpea veggie burger with sriracha mayo and it’s my new favorite. And although it sounds shocking, this meatless burger is actually great quick meal option. Meatless burger recipes are often labor intensive. But […]

campanelle pasta

Campanelle Pasta With Sausage And Green Olives

I love to play around with pasta.  Pasta is neutral in flavor, with limitless potential.  The best pasta I have ever had was in Italy and it was incredibly simple. The life changing dish had only three ingredient. And it was dirt cheap. And although this trip was many moons ago with my husband, well […]

meatloaf

Bacon Wrapped Bison Meatloaf

Let’s talk about meatloaf, shall we? Some love it, some love to hate it and some love it in secret and refuse to admit it. I find this fascinating. Historically, meatloaf is considered a traditional German, Scandinavian dish that is cousin to the Dutch meatball. Meatloaf, when you break it down, is exactly as the name […]

baked Ling cod

Crispy Almond Crusted Baked Ling Cod

Happy 2021! I SO wish I could say the world is back to “normal“, but sadly we’re not there just yet. But I’m hopeful. I strongly believe if we all do our part (and get vaccinated), we will begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel. It is a marathon, not a […]

braised fish with tomato sauce

Braised Fish with Tomato Sauce

I’m not sure if a fish dish can be considered sexy, but if it can, this braised fish with tomato sauce should be. A healthful dish with flaky white fish and rich, flavorful stewed tomatoes and spinach. The bonus here, it’s also a quick meal and can be pulled together on a hectic weekday night […]

cod with lemon and green olives

Oven Roasted Cod With Lemon And Green Olives

Warmer months often cause me to seek simpler meals. Not just time spent in preparation, but dishes that have fewer ingredients. This oven-roasted cod with lemon and green olives is just that; light, flavorful, and almost effortless. Cod has a lovely mild flavor and while I often like stronger-tasting fish, like salmon, cod has a […]

caramelized onion roast chicken

Caramelized Onion Roast Chicken

Winner, winner chicken dinner, you know the phase, this is the dish; caramelized onion roast chicken. This takes a simple, inexpensive chicken meal to a whole new playing field. One dish, one hour, one pan, seriously, what’s not to love? Similar to a sheet pan dinner, skillet dinners are just as fast and simple. And although […]
