Pizza, Pizza, Pizza! How I love pizza! I truly do! Pizza is one of my favorite things to chow down on! I’m a total carboholic and cheese fanatic, so with pizza, I get the best of both worlds. Also, you get to be creative with pizza and top it with whatever your heart desires, and these past few weeks we’ve been desiring roasted broccoli rabe! That’s not such a bad thing, right?
These fries are SO GOOD, SUPER ADDICTIVE and honestly as easy to make up as the frozen variety (and cheaper too). I’m serious! They’re browned, caramelized and slightly crispy on the outside, and soft, sweet and tender on the inside. Yum, Yum! I will admit that these fries are not going to be crispy, like fries that have been fried, they tend to be softer like steak fries.
These popovers have a touch of sweetness and are the perfect afternoon snack for the kiddos, or a great breakfast and/or brunch addition. Serve them up warm from the oven plain, or open them up and slather their insides with some jam or butter. Yum!
This 5-minute roasting technique has really saved me time and hassle in the kitchen on those busy weeknights where I want to serve up a vegetable, but don’t have tons of time to heat up the oven and roast veggies for 15 to 20 minutes. I’m a full-time working mama now, as you all know, and it’s all about efficiency in Marin mama’s kitchen these days.
You know those crispy Brussels that you get at a restaurant that you wish you could make at home? Well, now you can make them at home, and they’re healthy to boot and take under 30 minutes to roast up to perfection. If you have Brussels haters in your house, then give this method a try and I bet you they will be converted to Brussels lovers!
This is the BEST grilled cheese sandwich EVER. Adding roasted broccoli to a grilled cheese sandwich is genius, as it adds an extra punch of flavor and texture, and honestly makes you feel less guilty about eating a grilled cheese. Tossing some broccoli into a grilled cheese is also a great way to sneak some veggies into your little ones, so for those of you that have some picky veggie eaters, you may want to give this sandwich a try. It’s kid approved in my house!
This is such a simple and fresh salad, and it’s so different from my other kale salads, as it doesn’t have any cheese in it. We all know how much I love cheese, but I don’t miss it in this salad at all because the nuts, fennel and oranges really give this salad some flavor.
This is to me a perfect winter salad because it’s savory, sweet and nutty all at once. Roasted sweet potatoes paired with the chewy nutty texture of farro and topped with fresh dill and arugula greens, it’s almost too pretty to eat.
I’ve been making lots of soup lately. When my life is in disarray, making soup calms, grounds and comforts me. There’s just something so comforting about sipping a warm bowl of soup on a cool winters night, and nothing says comfort like chicken noodle soup right?
This is hands down my GO-TO bolognese! It’s seriously the perfect and tastiest bolognese for those busy weeknights, as it takes under 45 minutes start to finish, but the sauce tastes like a sauce that’s been cooking on your stove top all day, not for just 30 minutes.
