Imagine coming home after a long day to a tender BBQ beef sandwich. This slow cooker meal is so easy and you wont believe how much flavor these sandwiches have. All you have to do is chop some onions and pour some wine and soy sauce over it and let it cook while you work or play and finish it off with an easy BBQ sauce. These are delicious served on a crusty ciabatta bun alongside my lemony slaw.
When I need a quick dinner, I often turn to a breakfast recipe. This fritata is easy to make and packed with flavor. With the smoked salmon and dill, as well as the sautéed scallions and onions it’s the best combination of bagels and lox and your favorite omellete all in one. If you don’t have a large enough sautee pan to bake this in the oven, you can make it in a 9 by 13 pyrex dish instead! To round out the meal, serve this with a green salad and my easy crispy roasted herbed potatoes.
Tagines are great winter meals. This one has meatballs that cook in a spicy sauce, that includes all the best of middle eastern spices, like cumin and cinnamon. If you are up for a twist on a traditional meatball dinner, serve this morrocan version meatball tagine with cous cous for a deliciously different weeknight meal.
I love split pea soup on a cold winter night and this one can be made in no time using a pressure cooker. The split peas after cooking for 30 minutes in a pressure cooker or 2-3 hours in a Dutch Oven, will melt down and form a thick broth. My husband loves having a few hot dog rounds floating in his, so if you are up for a non-vegetarian option, try it!
This may be the easiest fish recipe I make and each time I bring it somewhere, people rave about it. The simple spice mix of brown sugar and chili powder, spread over the salmon, turns into a sweet and spicy glaze while it cooks. You and your family will be licking up the extra sauce…
These little latkes are a great Hanukah finger food for your next party. Each latke comes with its own sauce that you can put on top. Try the traditional latkes with homemade applesauce, the zucchini latkes with lemon zest cream or the sweet potatoe latkes with sriracha aioli. If you make them all, have a taste test to see which ones your guests like best!
f you are looking for a little variety in your latke eating, these sweet potato latkes are a great choice. They are made like the traditional latkes, but have a sweet taste< If you like sweet and salty, crisp up the latkes and add some extra salt at the end, when you remove them from the oil. I pair this with a sriracha aioli, for a great sweet, salty and spicy contrast.
This is our go to salad and dressing, which you can throw together while someone is setting the table. My favorite way to make this dressing (or any dressing) is to put all of the ingredients into a small jar with a lid and shake it well. Once you get the hang of it, you can switch up the vinegars, oils and spices and make it your own!
Grilling a Thanksgiving Turkey? You heard me right… This has become our annual Thanksgiving tradition, as untraditional as it is. Not only does grilling a turkey take half the time as roasting it in the oven, but the smoky flavor is a nice break from the traditional roasted bird. If you’re up for something new, give this preparation a try.
This is one of those meals that just smells like home. Not only is it a really comforting meal, but it is an easy to make, one dish meal. You layer the potatoes and onions on the bottom of the dish and top them with the chicken. As they cook together, the onions caramelize into sweet goodness, while the potatoes get creamy and flavored by the chicken and spices. Serve this chicken with a simple green salad or my roasted string beans or carrots.
