Egg Yolk Linguine

This is what happens when it’s almost dinner time, you want to add a starch to the table, you want to be delicious OF COURSE but you also want it to be QUICK and EASY. Basically, if carbonara and cacio e pepe had a baby you’d get my Egg Yolk Linguine. SHOPPING LIST: linguine, 2Continue reading “Egg Yolk Linguine”

Chicken Sausage Stir Fry

The truth is, I, like many people, kept raiding the supermarkets before it became clear that the grocery stores were going to stay OPEN and STOCKED. So I have a lot of things I grabbed and it was time to figure out how to put them all to good use. The following stir-fry was inspiredContinue reading “Chicken Sausage Stir Fry”

Taco Turkey Stuffed Peppers

I first encountered cubanelle peppers at the farmers market in Bethany Beach, DE. I asked the farmer what to do with them and he was quick to reply – he told me to mix sausage with cream cheese, stuff them and bake them. I have since done this countless times but I wanted to re-createContinue reading “Taco Turkey Stuffed Peppers”

Orange Glazed Brussels Sprouts

Recipes like this go to show how easy it to take your basic dishes up a notch. We love roasted Brussels sprouts in our house, and they are delicious with just olive oil, salt and pepper.

Yellow Pepper Shrimp

Another one of those recipes inspired by a Whole Foods product that piqued my interest – in this case, Sky Valley Aji Amarillo Sauce! This Peruvian yellow pepper sauce was completely new to me, but I loved that the ingredients included lime juice as we’re big citrus fans at my house. This seemed like theContinue reading “Yellow Pepper Shrimp”

Broccoli Cheddar Casserole

Everyone’s family has famous dishes – in my husband’s family, it’s Grandma Lila’s Spinach Squares. This recipe is essentially me replacing the frozen spinach with fresh broccoli — but let’s understand something, this *blank* Cheddar Casserole can essentially be made with ANY fresh or frozen vegetable of your choosing. SHOPPING LIST: 6 broccoli crowns, 2Continue reading “Broccoli Cheddar Casserole”

Fennel Salad with Lemon Ricotta

Looking to brighten your day? Best way to do that is in the kitchen. This Fennel Salad actually combines TWO recipes – meaning you could serve your whipped ricotta as just a dip, or you could serve your fennel salad without the whipped ricotta – but together, it’s a complex and composed dish bursting withContinue reading “Fennel Salad with Lemon Ricotta”

Cacio e Pepe Cabbage

I have been cooking cabbage consistently for years – my ODE TO CABBAGE was my first foray into sharing my love for this veggie with you all, but holy moly, I think this was/is my favorite cabbage dish YET. Coincidentally, a traditional Cacio e Pepe is one of my go-to pasta dishes (especially when it’sContinue reading “Cacio e Pepe Cabbage”

“Sausage” and Peppers

BIG big fan of hot Italian sausage over here so your basic Sausage + Peppers has been an easy go-to in our household for years. I always like using the mini tri-colored peppers when making this dish because they are so sweet and they get SO juicy when you roast them. However, from watching JerseyContinue reading ““Sausage” and Peppers”

Eggplant Caponata

Just look at this beauty. I’m a frequent customer at my local Eataly for their caponata. It’s just one of those prepared foods that’s delicious cold, full of flavor!!! and is yummy alone or paired with food (I like to eat it with the Eataly chicken salad which I know sounds weird but don’t knockContinue reading “Eggplant Caponata”
