Simmered Curry Sea Bass

We eat a lot of fish – and sometimes my meat-loving husband isn’t totally satisfied, so I am always trying to think of ways to shake it up. Poaching fish in a vibrant and flavorful sauce is such an EASY and ONE POT way to simply prepare your fish for dinner. SHOPPING LIST: 2 lbs.Continue reading “Simmered Curry Sea Bass”

Fried Onion + Mushroom Egg Salad

Eggs are one of the few items I can’t find at the stores right now, so when my kids INSISTED on hard-boiled eggs and didn’t eat them there was NO WAY they were going to waste. And since I have fridge full of every grocery I could possible think of – it was time toContinue reading “Fried Onion + Mushroom Egg Salad”

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”

Lemon Ravioli (a la Misi)

When I went to Misi in Brooklyn we ordered the “sheep’s milk ricotta filled occhi, bottarga, lemon,” cleaned the plate in about 5 seconds, and then proceeded to do the same thing 2 more times. It was, and remains, one of my favorite pasta dishes ever. Simple but BRIGHT!!! It was like these little “occhis”Continue reading “Lemon Ravioli (a la Misi)”

Head of the Class

We eat A LOT of cauliflower in my house. It’s a vegetable my husband and my daughters actually enjoy so it’s often on repeat, and often just roasted florets with coconut oil, salt and pepper. So it was time to tackle the WHOLE ROASTED CAULIFLOWER trend. My concern? Getting the flavor to permeate throughout theContinue reading “Head of the Class”

Ginger-Spiced Cod with Grilled Pineapple Guacamole

At this point we might as well call me Sandra Lee because more and more my cooking techniques are drawing inspo from her old show, “Semi-Homemade.” I should also be sponsored by Whole Foods but alas, I’ll just share last night’s dinner. Pacific Cod. Wild. On sale! Done! At this point I always buy 2Continue reading “Ginger-Spiced Cod with Grilled Pineapple Guacamole”

Cajun Mustard Salmon

Yesterday I had lunch at Le Bilboquet, and my brilliant friend Carly special ordered the famous Cajun Chicken as Cajun Salmon – which got me thinking!!!! I knew I was making salmon for dinner, and while my husband isn’t a “sauce” person, I wanted to try my own version of this dish using similar flavors.Continue reading “Cajun Mustard Salmon”

Green Curry Tofu

I feel like fashion bloggers always show their ZARA hauls and I should do the same thing for Whole Foods. I love food shopping, I love picking my own produce, I love talking to the people at the fish counter about their recommendations, and I love seeing the new products at my local Whole Foods.Continue reading “Green Curry Tofu”
