I’m a little obsessed with the Blueberry Polenta Muffins at Locanda Verde in NY. I couldn’t find the recipe online and I also couldn’t find it in Karen DeMasco’s The Craft of Baking cookbook, so I took some liberties and tried to figure it out on my own.
I love a good decorated sugar cookie. This recipe is easy and good to do with girlfriends or your guy for Valentine’s Day. Enjoy!
I’m always looking for healthy and detox friendly dinner recipes – sometimes it’s just nice to do a mid-week reset with your eating plan to get on back on track. I’m really enjoying recipes in Bon Appetit’s 2013 Food Lover’s Cleanse – it shows that you can reboot your diet without deprivation.
Sometimes, you just need a cookie. I was searching online for a good oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe and came across this version from the Cookies for Kids Cancer: Best Bake Sale Cookbook.
Soup is great in the winter but let’s be honest, we can only handle so much Chicken Soup or Turkey Chili, luckily I came across this Mexican Corn and Poblano Soup recipe from Martha Stewart. I added roasted chicken breast for a little protein and topped with slices of fresh avocado and cilantro leaves.
Who doesn’t love homemade Mac & Cheese? I rarely make it, who has the time to babysit the béchamel sauce, never mind counting all those calories that it’ll set you back. Luckily, I found this veggie-rich and portion controlled version from Giada’s website.
This is my go-to recipe for lunch on the weekend, usually after the gym but before I’ve started errands (ie. made it to the grocery store for the week).
How will this year be different from the last? Mary’s changing things in the kitchen, to start…
I’ve been making this recipe a lot lately, squash is easy to find this time of year, and this dish tastes like something that took hours, when it really only takes 30 minutes start to finish!
I enjoy making traditional holiday cookies but also enjoy trying some new recipes each year to add to the mix. Nothing is more festive than the traditional sugar cookie – and it’s a great activity to decorate with friends or kids.
