The highlight of this Week’s Eats was by far and away the Ribolita. This is my perfect form of healthy comfort food and perfect for these chilly days. All of these recipes can be prepped on Sunday night - mostly chopping up vegetables. I know some people don’t like to store chopped onions in their fridge but I store mine in an airtight container next to the baking soda.Read More
It is that time of year again…it is holiday cookie time! I am pretty sure from now until December 26th, I pretty much live off of cookies. Cookies and the holidays just go hand in hand in my opinion.
This year I thought I would do something called the 12 Days of Holiday Gift Giving. I love to give homemade gifts and what better gift is there than gifts you can eat. I am kicking off these 12 Days of Holiday Gift Giving with these ginger molasses cookies. They are always a huge hit when I make them and I promise you will fall head over heals with these delicious treats when you try them.Read More
One of my favorite flavor combinations is pumpkin and cream cheese. They go together so well and compliment each other. This pumpkin bread with a cream cheese swirl is part dessert and part breakfast - it would be delicious as dessert on your Thanksgiving table or even for Thanksgiving breakfast. It is also a great hostess gift to give if you are going to someone’s house for Thanksgiving.Read More
So many good recipes this week! Where do I even start? One of the highlights was the ravioli - that recipe is just so easy, tasty, and feels so sophisticated (I think it is because of that brown butter). I am also adding the Roast Chicken with Grapes and Acorn Squash to the permanent rotation. Something about that roast grape and chicken combo that makes it a total winner.Read More
If you haven’t roasted grapes before, I strongly urge you to try this recipe. I am not a huge fan of raw grapes - they were just never really my thing but by roasting them, you bring out all of these complex sweet and savory flavors that elevate whatever you are cooking them with. I like to pair them with something neutral like chicken, although they would be rally good with a pork loin as well. I had half an acorn squash leftover from making baby food so I threw that in there as well. The result is a deeply rich and hearty meal that comes together all in one dish.Read More
