MY WEEK IN FOOD

Started the week off with a Sunday supper where we grilled up a mess of Piri Piri Chicken and asked guests to bring potluck sides. The chicken didn’t disappoint, but it was my sister-in-law’s vegetables that stole the show. You can find tahini dressing similar to hers over on Cooking Light. We had half of a jar of […]

Started the week off on a sweet note since we were assigned dessert for a family potluck. With strawberry season in full swing (hope that’s the case where you are, too), I crowned this lovely Lemon Yogurt Cake with plenty of berries and a spoonful of yogurt cream. Delish. The next morning I needed a power […]

Leading with a favorite this week: Asian collard wraps filled with shredded veggies and grilled pork doused in rice vinegar, fish sauce, and sriracha. Made the peanut sauce from my cookbook with a squeeze of sriracha for added kick. The consensus? Messy and time consuing, but totally worth making again. A far less fussy supper involved an end-of-the-week […]

Had to lead off with the recipe that grabbed my eye the most this week: Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chia Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies. A mouthful to say, as are the cookies to eat, I’m sure. I can’t lay claim to the recipe (it’s from The Spicy RD), but it is definitely going on my “gotta try” […]

Favorite meal of the week was this shoot-from-the-hip noodley (is that a word?) Asian salad built on leftovers. The fixings? Udon tossed with shredded cabbage, pickled vegetables, roasted peanuts, and a splash of rice vinegar, fish sauce, and cilantro. This was where it all started the evening before when friends gathered around a  Saturday night Banh Mi Bar (I […]

Since it was all about Valentine’s Day this week, I was thinking pink, as in Strawberry Milk. Not the Nesquik version, mind you, but a homespun recipe made by mixing 1 cup milk, 1 handful frozen strawberries, and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract in a blender until smooth and frothy. Add honey to taste, a teaspoon at a […]

Big emphasis on breakfast this week, starting with these beauties: red and green baked apples. It’s a recipe in the works for my cookbook, but I did something similar a few years ago that you can find here. Started the week off with a big veggie prep  — washing lettuces, chopping vegetables, and making a […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

Like most of you, these past weeks have been all about the holidays, starting with a big batch of Alice Waters’ Chocolate Crinkle Cookies from The Art of Simple Food. This recipe is just one more reason to love Alice. On the subject of cookies, it’s not Christmas around here without a big batch of gingerbread. […]

We’re finally getting some cold weather here in California (or at least chilly by our standards), which calls for comfort food, starting with this homey  Hungarian Mushroom Goulash from Sarah Copeland’s vegetarian cookbook Feast. The mushrooms did such a fine job in their meaty role, we didn’t even miss the beef. Traveling the  comfort food globe […]

I do believe I’m a little behind here on My Week in Food, so let’s catch up starting with breakast. Made this pretty little meal for a food writer  friend who stopped by to talk shop. Took advantage of all my favorite fall fruits in a diced salad of persimmon, pomegranate, pears, and tangerines, with […]
