pizza on the grill

It’s Mother’s Day weekend, people. I hope all you mamas get some much needed TLC. I put my Apple Cinnamon Dutch Babies on the menu just for you. They’re so good and easy enough that someone else can make them for you. You might also check out this Mother’s Day Menu for more inspiration.

UMAMI CHICKEN

A really simple chicken recipe made with pantry basics. You can pair it with anything you’d like: any grain, salad or vegetable — fresh, frozen, canned or otherwise. The extra sauce in the bottom of the pan can be used to flavor the sides you choose.

SUMMER ROLLS WITH PEANUT DIPPING SAUCE

I like to set this up as a DIY summer roll bar. Set out all your fixings and let your family make their own. The recipe includes a yummy peanut sauce with just a hint of heat. I often do a quick side salad of sliced cucumbers (and maybe radishes, too) doused in seasoned rice vinegar.

MEATY MUSHROOM MARINARA

This marinara uses canned tomatoes and ground beef (or ground “meatless” meat) and any leftovers can be kept frozen for several months. You can serve it over pasta, cauliflower, brown rice, or baked potatoes. Add in fresh or frozen spinach, collards, kale, or other leafy greens for added nutrition.

PIZZA ON THE GRILL

As the weather beings to get warmer, bring your pizza game outside. A backyard grill doubles as a terrific pizza oven, since it gets piping hot. Make your own dough or pick up refrigerated dough at the market.

SWEET POTATO BLACK BEAN BOWLS

White bowl with sweet potato black beans avocado and a green sauce with a blue napkin

New to the blog, these nourishing bowls are a fan favorite in my house. Roasted sweet potatoes, brown rice, black beans, and avocado get dressed up with a tangy, slightly spicy cilantro sauce. Add pickled jalapeños, Cotija cheese, toasted pepitas or whatever else strikes your fancy.

APPLE CINNAMON DUTCH BABIES

Apple Cinnamon Puffy Pancakes

Who doesn’t love a Dutch Baby? These ones are easy to make and fun to watch rise. Serve with warm maple syrup and fresh fruit on the side.

BRUSSELS SPROUTS SALAD

A refreshing way to prep Brussels sprouts made by running them through a food processor before tossing in olive oil, lemon, pecorino and almonds. This salad is a great batch cooking option, since it lasts a couple of days.

I think there is a broken link for the baby dutch pancakes. Can you kindly fix? Thank you, Katie!
