Lentils con Pomodorini

September 26, 2011

0

Want a protein packed side that tastes delicious?  Try lentils!  I made this super quick and easy side, that can easily be converted into a main dish in 2o minutes!  Lentils can be dry if eaten plain so I add them to a nice peeled cherry tomato sauce that I whipped up and it adds […]

Since the school year started last week it has been a bit hectic, so I have not been able to post recently.  Tonight I wanted to capture the flavors and smells of autumn and nothing reminds me of that more than oven roasted chicken.  The smells that were wafting out of my oven were unbelievable! […]

My neighbor shared her abundance of zucchini from her garden with me earlier this week.  I had already made linguine with zucchini so tonight I needed to try something different.  When eating at Ninety Acres last year I remember eating this summer squash soup, which was just delicious, so I tried to recreate that with […]

Tonight’s meal was quick, but flavorful. I was cooking it while pickling my veggies.  I used my standard fish taco recipe but instead of making pico de gallo I used some pickled (surprise surprise) cole slaw.  I prefer the pickled slaw to the mayo coated version not only because it is healthier (obvious), but because […]

I was recently reading an article in Bon Appetit about how pickling veggies is a great way to serve and preserve them.  So I decided to jump on the pickling bandwagon.  The recipes are from Bon Appetit so here are the links: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/quick-recipes/2011/08/pickled-baby-squash http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/quick-recipes/2011/08/pickled-peppers I used my serrano and cayenne peppers from my garden and […]
