Nothing comforts me more than a warm bowl of soup on a cold winter night, and since we’ve still got a bit of winter left, I’m sharing a new one: golden carrot soup with pistachio dukkah. It’s simple, healthy, has a really lovely flavor, and is topped with an extra flavorful crunchy nut and spice mixture.
A cold-weather dinner when you need a cozy, indulgent pasta: mac and cheese with brussels sprouts, kale, and caramelized onions. It’s tossed in a creamy cheddar sauce and topped with bacon breadcrumbs. And it’s kind of the most irresistible mac and cheese that I could ever dream up!
I’m naming this my essential hearty pasta dish for fall and winter: orecchiette with sausage & butternut squash. It’s a rustic-style pasta that comes together in one pan and has lots of satisfying flavor in every bite.
A Valentine’s Day dinner that is just as tasty as it is special: pomegranate skirt steak with whipped feta. Skirt steak seared simply and served on top of creamy whipped feta cheese, topped with a sweet pomegranate sauce, pomegranate seeds, pistachios, scallions, and chives. You can serve this with homemade naan bread (my personal favorite) or even some roasted potatoes. I adore this dish for any occasion, but especially for a festive, colorful Valentine’s Day meal.
Sharing a very flavorful steak & egg salad with caper vinaigrette today. I’d call this my go-to lunch entree salad. Perfect for entertaining or making for a simple weekend lunch with family. It’s hearty and satisfying, made with seared steak and hard-boiled eggs. Tossed with feta, garlicky roasted tomatoes, radishes, dill, and a tangy caper vinaigrette.
My go-to winter side dish to tack on to just about any meal: honey roasted winter vegetables with black pepper yogurt. Sweet + savory, caramelized + creamy. Simple ingredients are majorly elevated with just a few special touches in this very dreamy dish.
We’re talking healthy entertaining today with this charred scallion turmeric yogurt dip. It’s a boldly flavored dip full of sizzled scallions, crushed red pepper, lemon zest, turmeric, coriander, and honey. The base is Greek yogurt so it’s not only delicious but nourishing as well. Serve this at your next winter dinner party to start things off on a light, but very tasty note.
Sharing the most indulgent, yet healthy gluten free dark chocolate waffles drizzled with warm honey. These are a chocolate lover’s dream and still fit perfectly into a “feel good” January.
Crispy pan-seared halibut with salsa verde & juicy grapefruit. A dish to savor the beautiful winter citrus! It’s a simple, quick recipe with exciting flavor. Serve it with a side of roasted vegetables for a really balanced and refreshing winter dinner.
A lazy Sunday breakfast of herb ricotta omelets with crispy chickpeas and pan-roasted mushrooms. Simple 3-egg omelets made extra special with fresh parsley, chives, and oregano…and a little creamy ricotta cheese.
