Roasting it makes it so much better

I am so excited the weekend is here.  Fall is starting to filter in, baseball playoffs are getting exciting and football is what the weekends are all about.  To make this weekend something to remember you have to try this Roasted Salsa Verde.   Green is better (in my opinion) …

a perfect late summer quinoa

Quinoa is for sure one of my favorite sides.  I love it on its own, with chicken or fish, or mixed into a salad.  One of my latest creations is this Cilantro Lime Quinoa and I am OBSESSED with it!! A side for ANYTHING & ANYTIME!  I love sides that …

a summer must…homemade chimichurri sauce

I am a sucker for sauces.  I love them on almost any dish…heck I love sauces on really anything.  Literally I love a good hollandaise for breakfast, and nice pesto for lunch and something like this Chimichurri for dinner (or anytime of the day). And it is so pretty I …

Are you a pesto fan?  I am for sure…I love pesto anyway, anyhow.  Especially when it is changed up a bit. Arugula for the change-up I am a big fan of basil.  I love using it in my red sauce for pasta or for a simple bruschetta, but for pesto …

It is probably no surprise but I am a fan of garlic.  I use it in almost all my savory dishes…not almost really in all my savory dishes.  I love it in all forms, but Roasted is my MOST favorite!! It all started at a pizza joint Years a go, I …
