Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad

This dreary Monday called for a BRIGHT and beautiful recipe. Brussels sprouts salads take a little bit more work because you have to really prep the Brussels, but it’s totally worth it because these baby cabbages are much heartier and satisfying than your typical salad greens. SHOPPING LIST: 1 lb. Brussels sprouts, shaved parmesan, driedContinue reading “Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad”

Greek Fennel Bake

I am so into this recipe. I was staring at two bulbs of fennel and for the sake of being creative, I didn’t just slice it up with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and parmesan for my usual simple salad. I wanted to roast it and I wanted it to be cheesy and thus theContinue reading “Greek Fennel Bake”

Pistachio Gremolata

What a gorgeous green bowl of goodness! I had a beautiful piece of fresh striped bass from Out of the Blue and wanted to give it a little more love than simply grilling it. The kids were snacking on pistachios so I had another one of my AH HA! moments – gremolata! But to keepContinue reading “Pistachio Gremolata”

Gluten free or not, this was aContinue reading “ChickPea Chicken Parm”

Triple Sesame Green Beans

I’ve never cooked much with bamboo shoots, but when I was looking for canned goods – outside of your usual suspects like corn, chickpeas, baked beans, etc. – I saw these Native Forest Organic Bamboo Shoots and threw a bunch of them in my cart. Combine that with a newfound appreciation for tahini – thanksContinue reading “Triple Sesame Green Beans”

Cauliflower Carbonara

A lot of Rome inspiration these days. My favorite carbonara on Earth also is located in the great city of Rome at Maccheroni. I think it’s just fun to reminisce about foregone days of traveling right now. I got the idea for doing this Cauliflower Carbonara when I had a leftover package of bacon andContinue reading “Cauliflower Carbonara”

Seared Tuxedo Tuna

At least somebody is getting dressed up around here. If you are fortunate enough to be able to find raw tuna right now, this is my favorite way of preparing fresh tuna steaks. Thankfully, Out of the Blue has pretty good stock right now on the East End of Long Island, especially for local fish.Continue reading “Seared Tuxedo Tuna”
