WEEKNIGHT GNOCCHI

WEEKNIGHT GNOCCHI

Not everything has to be made from scratch. There are some great products on the market that are healthy and made well. So for those nights when you don’t feel like spending time creating a homemade dish, just go to your pantry and grab a […]

CREAMY RED LENTIL PASTA WITH MUSHROOMS & BASIL

CREAMY RED LENTIL PASTA WITH MUSHROOMS & BASIL

Red lentil pasta has become my go-to for quick and easy dinners. I buy ones in fun shapes and just grab whatever is in my fridge. But this particular dish was so good I had to share. Mushrooms and shallots in the creamy cheese sauce […]

BROCCOLINI LENTIL SALAD

BROCCOLINI LENTIL SALAD

I love beluga lentils, and I love broccolini. Put those two together and scatter with chilies and I’m happy. I made this for my friend’s birthday. She has become a vegan so my challenge this year was to make an exciting, interesting, and delicious dinner. […]

POTATO LENTIL SALAD

POTATO LENTIL SALAD

CAPONATA FLAT BREAD

CAPONATA FLAT BREAD

This flat bread is a great summer dinner. Crispy bread topped with a sweet and sour eggplant relish, smothered with manchego cheese and finished with parsley for a fresh element. Paired with a glass and wine and a simple side salad and dinner is done!

ASADA FRIES

ASADA FRIES

I first had this dish at a restaurant. It was very tasty but I felt I could make it better. It was a big bed a fries with small amounts of toppings and a few pieces of steak which had to be cut up. I […]

MISO GINGER BEEF

MISO GINGER BEEF

Recently I have been experimenting with miso. Up until now, I have only had in in its soup form. I have now learned that this ingredient is so versitile and can be used in so many ways, from a seasoning to a marinade. This was […]
