Here’s a list of the best things I ate in November…don’t you love a good list?!
On Saturday mornings, I sit with a cup of coffee and my laptop to plan out breakfast, lunch and dinner for the week to come. This involves perusing my recipe archive, cookbooks, recent foodie newsletters and favorite websites (and sometimes writing a new recipe of my own 😉) to curate a daily menu full of variety and healthy options that also fit our schedules.
Each month, I share the fruits of discovering new and tested recipes with you. Whether you’re looking for inspiration or to get out of a cooking rut, stop by each month for a round-up of the best things I ate. Or, follow me on Facebook to get a weekly recap every Tuesday.
I’m an egg person. And an avocado person. So, any avocado toast is my jam. What I like about this one is that you kinda have to eat it with a fork, so it make me slow down and really enjoy!
I knew this would be a winner with my kiddo. He loves tortellini. I chopped the spinach before adding it, because it makes it a lot harder for him to avoid eating it!
Holy burrito bowl! This was our meatless Monday dish. I subbed in leftover roasted veggies from the weekend. You could really swap out anything you have on hand…except the vinaigrette. You must make it as is because it is that good!
We’ve been making this recipe for years, but it’s been awhile! So glad I stumbled across it again because it’s soooo good. If you like sushi, or poke bowls, you’ll likely appreciate this cooked salmon bowl. You can always omit the wasabi from the vinaigrette if that’s not your thing, but you’d be seriously missing out!
This looks decadent, and it tastes pretty decadent, but with all those mushrooms and tender chicken breast, it’s actually on the lighter side. I served it with homemade garlic mashed potatoes. It calls for tarragon, but try it with thyme or rosemary if you’re not a fan of anise flavor.
I got up early on the weekend to make this for my guys. It filled the house with aromas of sausage and cheese bubbling away in the oven, they couldn’t wait to dig in for breakfast. Thumbs up all around!
This is a favorite of ours…one of the few recipes that is part of our regular rotation. I like to use leftover rotisserie chicken to make quick work of this.
I made this on a Friday when I knew I could linger and completely enjoy it with some nice wine and crusty bread. It brought me to my happy place! Subbed in boneless, skinless chicken thighs because that’s how we roll, and served steamed haricots verts alongside.
After watching the Buenos Aires episode of Street Food Latin America on Netflix, we knew this dish was going to happen. And it will happen again…and again! If you have a favorite chimichurri recipe, I recommend you go with it instead of the one in this recipe. Served it with oven fries and chimichurri aioli on the side. Yum!
