Sometimes I just want to change up dinner and try something new. I don’t know if I’m late to the party, but these potatoes are the bomb. They might be so 2014 because I think I saw these all over the Web last year. Recently, I was at the farmers market thinking that I just keep walking by Weiser Family Farms’ lovely little potatoes week after week. I hadn’t bought them in a while because I didn’t feel inspired. Then it just hit me: I must buy these potatoes and smash them. And so I did. Revelatory.
This brussels sprouts salad is my new “go-to” salad. The shaved sprouts have a great crunch and are a welcome change from a salad with regular lettuce. Shaved, raw brussels sprouts are similar to the cabbage in coleslaw rather than like cooked brussels sprouts. I’m enjoying this salad and like the variety it’s adding to my cooking repertoire. Best of all, this salad is ideal for entertaining because it can be made days ahead (with the dressing on the side) and can sit out on a food buffet without getting soggy.
Macaroni and Cheese is always a crowd-pleaser, especially with kids. Recently, I planned a holiday food buffet with sophisticated flavors and then decided to add this dish so I could please a wider range of palates. I wanted to make a dish lower in fat so the adults wouldn’t feel guilty having some too. I took a regular recipe and lightened it up.
Want to get more greens in your diet? Don’t know what to cook with all the greens that come in your Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) box? This pesto pasta is the answer. Not only is this pesto delicious on pasta, it makes a fantastic sauce for chicken, fish, and bruschetta.
This cauliflower soup is my friend Sharon’s signature recipe. She combined and tweaked recipes until she came up with this heavenly, light purée. When Sharon brought this soup to our cooking club, no one could believe that this delicious, creamy soup is dairy-free and healthy. The soup has the most amazing smooth texture and a subtle flavor with a hint of leek. I never knew how great cauliflower could be until this soup.
