This lemon caper chicken dish is one of my “go-to” dishes, especially when I know it’s going to be one of those hectic days. I made this dish a few times in culinary school and messed it up, so I’ve created this easy version, without all the extra steps to impress instructors!
This roasted tomato basil soup is one of our super-fast family favorites. It’s only a handful of easy-to-prepare ingredients.
I love this Mediterranean orzo pasta because it offers the intensity of the sun-dried tomatoes, the tartness of the olives, the creaminess of the feta, and the wonderful crunch you get with the pine nuts. I’m always a sucker for that little bit of crunch!
I love this dish when I’m in the mood to make comfort food. It offers onion, garlic and red wine … the Holy Trinity of flavorful Italian cooking. I use red wine because it makes many Italian dishes special, and be sure to choose marzano for the tomatoes.
Everyone loves mashed potatoes, but this recipe is especially irresistible because it has goat cheese, which creates an unparalleled creaminess. Instead of cow’s milk or cream, I use almond milk. Trust me, you’ll love it.
This smoothie is a favorite of our guest host, “smoothie operator” Nicholas, age five (see the video). It’s frozen bananas, nut butter, honey, protein powder and ice. Healthy, easy, fun.
