ORANGE STEWED CHICKEN

Here is a recipe to warm your kitchen and your tummy, a tender, fall-off-the-bone “stewed” chicken. It is delicious as is, on top of salad, with a grain, in tacos… you can use it as the base for another dish; lasagna, enchilada, casserole… If your pot (I use one of […]

BABA GHANOUSH

Here is a deliciously healthy addition at a holiday party. During this time of celebrations and holiday treats, sticking to a healthful eating style is made infinitely easier when there are yummy snacks to be had. I love having delectable spreads waiting in the fridge. Having something tasty and healthy […]

ROASTED DELICATA SQUASH AND CAULIFLOWER SALAD

It’s almost too hard to believe that the holidays are already upon us. Christmas tree lots are starting to pop up on every corner, gift guides are a plenty, and the urge I have to watch Clark Griswold string 25,000 imported Italian twinkle lights over and over again is growing […]

EASY DUCK CONFIT, AN IMPROMPTU DINNER

For as much time as I spend planning out meals, grocery shopping, prepping and cooking food, there are surprisingly few occasions when I get to have fun making a fancy meal. A meal made with no time pressure, no one complaining that they don’t like some ingredient or another, no […]

Last Zuchini of the season

ZUCCHINI ALMOND FLOUR PANCAKES

OK, I promise, this is the last zucchini recipe, of this season. Really, I promise! I know a lot of you are in zucchini recipe overload, but here on the West Coast we’re still swimming in these little buggers. Besides, zucchini is so incredibly versatile, which is a culinary lifesaver […]

It’s wonderfully flexible as far as what ingredients are featured, it packs in a plethora of veg, and can be little or big depending on how hungry breakfasters are. As […]

BEET AND HERB SPICED LAMB BURGERS

It’s summer time, and that calls out for something delicious cooked out on the grill. Grilling a moist and tasty burger is an art. Never being one for simplicity, I am always trying for a new spin on the classics. And that classic burger isn’t known for packing in the […]

FRESH BASIL AND ALMOND PESTO

Sauces and dressings hold the power to elevate a ho-hum salad, soup or lack-luster chicken breast into a culinary delight. Pesto is one of my favorite delicious and versatile kitchen concoctions. Pesto is a packed with leafy greens, whether it’s herbs (basil, marjoram, Italian parsley, thyme, this is where you can get super […]

Eggs, Zucchini and Garlic

ZUCCHINI NESTED EGGS

On the rare mornings that call for something a little more decadent than vegetable soup I’ll make Zucchini Nested Eggs. This dish is delicious, satisfying, and once it’s plated up and served, it is beautiful. The best part is that it is relatively easy to prepare. I came up with this dish […]
