I don’t think we share enough fish recipes around here. Sure, we recently gave you a sweet and crunchy fish, and a while back posted some salmon, but this recipe is an entire meal in one. And it’s a very different way of cooking salmon (at least I’ve never cooked salmon this way before, have you). I don’t even like tomatoes, and I loved the couscous in this. Continue reading
This is Richie eating his piece of focaccia for breakfast one morning. Notice the happy face he is making because he loves it so much. Also notice those pajamas. everyone likes sleepy lions.
But really, I served this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner to a number of people, and they all loved it. Though I made them taste it before I told them about the weird flavor combination. Continue reading
Summer means corn season! And while we love grilling corn and making corn salad, I wanted to do something a little different this time. Of course, I consulted my favorite book and found an amazing sounding corn souffle.
We’ve made souffles before, and they’re fancy without being too hard to make. So, I decided to use Richie’s all-time favorite food and make it a little bit fancier for dinner.
Sometimes, the best lunch is just a big giant salad. But not just a boring lettuce and veggies salad, a delicious one with tons of protein, carbs, veggies, and lots of flavor. So when my mom was having company at the pool, I decided to do just that. A giant salad for lunch. It was easy to make, though it took a while to do all the steps, and was definitely worth it. For dinner I would sear tuna steaks, but for lunch, 2 cans of tuna is perfect.
We’ve never made sole for you before. Not that you can’t do this with another fish, but the recipe called for sole, and the supermarket has some frozen wild caught kosher sole, so I decided it was fate, I had to make a sole recipe to share with everyone. This is an easy meal, especially if you have fish in the freezer. I loved the sweet and salty taste of the crumb mixture! Sometimes, I just like to have a light dinner, and this fits the bill. Serve it with your favorite vegetable side dish, and that’s dinner!
I’ve been on a veggie burger kick lately. They’re just so easy to heat up for lunch. Served on a homemade bun, or on top of a big green salad, they make the perfect midday meal. And while I love store bought ones, they’re expensive and full of preservatives. So I have a repertoire of different veggie burgers in my freezer and pull out whichever one I’m in the mood for. It’s a good system, I suggest trying it.
We love cauliflower! And eat it many different ways. Of course, it’s always delicious just roasted with some olive oil, salt, and pepper. But this cheesy and oniony dish is simple, toasty, and not much harder than just roasting. It’s a great side dish that’s become a staple in our house. Continue reading
You know, I don’t really cook a lot of fish. Unless I’m having company, in which case salmon is my go-to main dish. Obviously, fish is a good dairy main dish for dinner parties, and it also makes a great centerpiece, because look how pretty that big piece of fish looks on top of that bed of root vegetables!
I’m always looking for new and interesting quinoa recipes. It gets boring to only put roasted vegetables or canned corn with dressing. So when I found a recipe for quinoa with golden beets and raisins, I knew I wanted to try it out, just tweaked a little bit. First of all, I can never find golden beets in the fruit store or supermarket! So I used the regular red ones. Anyway, I like red ones better anyway. Also, the original recipe called for feta cheese. And I don’t like feta cheese, so I left it out. Continue reading
My husband loves Brussels sprouts. Problem is, he always eats them the same way: cut in half and roasted. Boring! So when I saw a recipes for Israeli (pearled) couscous with brussels sprouts and chick peas, I decided to try it. I would see if Zeke would actually eat couscous, and have a more original way to eat his favorite veggie. Continue reading
