Savory

Just about the quickest, fanciest, most impressive of appetizers, are cheese boards! & no, they aren’t all overwhelming to build. But watch the price point on your cheese blocks. It adds up quickly. There is an art that comes with cheese board construction, but let’s keep it simple. In general, keep in mind to always […]

Bolognese pasta might be the coziest pasta there is. It’s got all the feel good veggies and a hearty red sauce that just tastes homey. If you want to make this recipe a bit more healthy, you can replace the penne pasta with cauliflower pasta. This dish will work with any type of pasta, but […]

Fresh pesto is one pasta sauce I cannot get enough of. Mixing up the basil and olive oil in a food processor creates the most delicious fragrance, making this pesto better than anything you can ever buy at the store. If you’ve got access to basil plants, they’re really fun to have out on your […]

White fish is just one of those diverse dishes you can eat by itself in a nice white wine sauce, add it to pasta, or make it into chowder. This one is halibut with white wine and capers. It’s packed with savory flavor and the capers give it an extra punch. Searing the fillets on […]

This bianco pizza is the first pizza I’ve ever made using fruit. And I have to say that it turned out pretty well. The cheddar and fig jam compliment each other well so the pizza isn’t too sweet. I’d probably slice the nectarines thinner than I did this time around. You can also add the […]

This Sunday I made a couple recipes, and nothing quite hit the spot. Until I decided to try to make a small one-serving soup recipe using staple ingredients. Usually when making soup, I’ll get excited about making a big pot of it and eating it for the week. But I always end up throwing some […]

The Jambon-Beurre sandwich is one of the most popular sandwiches in France. Or the ham and butter sandwich. It’s classically made with a thin baguette, lightly salted French butter and jambon De Paris. I added a couple additional ingredients like cornichon pickles and Gruyère cheese. A cute little cafe down the street from me makes […]

A light pasta dish is so refreshing for dinner every once in a while. Adding in some veggies and shrimp kick this spinach linguini up a notch. It pairs well with some sparkling Pellegrino, or even a glass of dry, white wine. Ingredients 1/2 package spinach linguini 1 package shrimp: pre – cooked handful baby […]

If you’ve never tried black soybean spaghetti, I’d highly suggest giving it a try. It’s healthier than traditional spaghetti, and is a beautiful dark purplish black color. It’s easy to add a veggie and cheese you have in the fridge into the pasta to customize it however you like. I happened to have some leftover […]

I think everyone loves soup, and it’s even better when all you need is a pot and maybe 20 minutes! No crockpot needed…and not 8 hours of waiting either. Gnocchi soup is a comfy, veggie filled soup that I first fell in love with at Olive Garden. I would never order an actual meal, just […]

I love roasted tomato crostini. It’s less than 6 ingredients & is so easy to throw some cherry tomatoes into the oven and bake them until crispy. All you need is a little olive oil, salt and pepper. They come out so juicy, tangy & sweet with such little effort. Then there’s the ricotta. Or […]

Now that it’s spring time, all I want to eat are fresh, bright ingredients. Typically, paccheri pasta would go with a heavy, meaty sauce, but in this case, I wanted something tangy and light to go with the big hearty noodles. I don’t typically cook with such large noodles, but I found a box of […]
