I did a thing. I ordered an enormous amount of bagels from NYC and let 1/2 of them go stale. Don't ask how this happened. Time flies, you know? I should've froze them upon arrival, but I didn't. And before I knew it I was left with two dozen stale bagels. Luckily, bagel chips are best made with stale bagels...and who doesn't love a crispy, salty bagel chip? They can be made in under 15 minutes from start to finish and store for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container or ziplock bag.
This dish has three of my favorite things: pasta, avocados and pesto. Can you ask for more? It's easy to make and absolutely delicious. You can easily swap out regular pasta for a protein dense alternative like lentil pasta to make this a complete meal.
This brisket is sweet, tangy and absolutely mouth watering. Brisket is often served during the Jewish holidays, and with age I've noticed I'm become more fond of honoring tradition. Whether you've Jewish or not, have never made a brisket before or have made many, this recipe will please you both in ease and flavor.
Now this quick and easy dish was made for the winter. The delicious aroma will fill your home with the scent of cinnamon, glove and ginger as it simmers on the stove. It's best served over basmati rice on a chilly night!
This delicious chicken recipe is lemony, herby and the perfect pairing for any dinner. Slice and serve over a salad or pasta dish or with a side of veggies. Once you've made this once this chicken recipe will be an easy dinner staple.
Risotto is by far one of my favorite dishes. Now that it's officially cold in North Florida this will grace our dinner table many times over the winter season. It's actually quite simple to make even though it seems daunting at first. This is a great 'beginners risotto' as it's done in the oven, so you don't need to stir it on the stovetop for an hour. Have a go at it, you'll see just how simple it is to make this decadent dish. Bon Appétit!
Leftover champagne from New Years Eve? I've got you covered. This is one of those dishes that looks complicated and sophisticated, something that is found on the menu at every fancy Italian restaurant... not something you'd dare make at home, right? Soooo wrong. It's extremely affordable, ridiculously easy and absolutely delicious. Grab that left over Champagne (or white wine or beer, this recipe is very forgiving) and let me teach you how to make something truly delicious. Mangia! Let's Eat!
Tis the season of slow cooked meals, chilis, stews and soups. This pumpkin chili is an absolute delight to the palette. Don't let the pumpkin fool you, it's both subtle and enticing at the same time. Bon appetit!
In Traditional Chinese Medicine we believe some foods are 'blood builders' which make them ideal for certain body types, situations and times of year. With that theory in mind this soup is the ultimate "blood builder" to nourish and support you during the Fall & Winter seasons. It's no wonder we intuitively crave certain foods as the temperatures start to dip. This soup is famously easy to make and absolutely delicious.
It's been so dry this past month, we desperately needed the rain. Then out of nowhere the skies opened up for us, glorious rain storms, thick dark clouds dripping with fat droplets and a symphony of frogs to sing their gratitude. This weather is so peaceful. It makes me want to turn inward and reflect, cuddle up and just be. This weather brings about a certain nostalgia, one of tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. What is it about tomato soup and the rain? They're simply the perfect pair.
