Puttanesca Fish

Putanesca has all of my favorite antipasti ingredients combined into one delicious sauce: olives, roasted peppers, capers and anchovies. Most recipes call for eating this sauce over pasta, but I was inspired by a recipe from Giada De Laurentiis where she paired it with fish - and I was sold. The salty and spicy sauce tastes perfect paired with any simply seared white fish and this bright arugala and fennel salad.

Roast Chicken with Lemon and Herbs

Roast chicken is a classic, but this recipe, has all of those delicious “extras” that will transform this weeknight roast chicken into a feast. Years ago, I watched a video on Martha Stewart, ("Eden's Roast Chicken") featuring this recipe and I knew I would love it when I saw the roasted lemons, capers and olives. If your go-to section of whole foods is the olive and pickle bar, you will love one-tray roasted chicken with its lemony-salty flair.
