Here’s a list of the best things I ate in October…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.
I decided to start sharing the fruits of discovering new and tested recipes with other home cooks. 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.
This is great as is, but some Naan on the side wouldn’t hurt. It’s so fragrant and flavorful. Not fussy at all, but looks and tastes amazing.
My husband cooks dinner once a week. He spins the globe, my son closes his eyes and points to a spot. Wherever his finger lands is where he begins the hunt for a recipe. This particular week it was Saudi Arabia!
This is a comforting, one pot meal! It was just as good the next morning as my breakfast with a fried egg, Greek yogurt and hot sauce on top. (I may or may not have been curing a wine headache.)
This seriously could not be any easier. Don’t skip the crusty bread! The juices from the burst tomatoes and butter create just a bit of sauce you’ll want to sop up. Great, healthy recipe when you’re short on time.
Most of the 45 minutes is inactive time while the sauce is cooking. There’s just a hint of heat, and the flavors are well balanced. I made this for a virtual wine tasting to pair with a spicy Zinfandel…perfect match!
This is comfort food! I threw some fresh broccoli florets into the boiling water with the noodles to make this a complete meal.
Seriously so easy and really delicious! I may just “bake” sweet potatoes in the crock pot from now on.
Instead of seasoning with salt and pepper, I used a cedar plank seasoning blend that amped up the flavor. I served it with a simple salad on the side. My 12 year old ate his whole portion before touching anything else on his plate.
I like to get a little more fancy with weekend breakfast and this did not disappoint! Topped with a fried egg, this protein packed meal was a delicious way to start the day.
