When people hear the word 'risotto' they often imagine standing at the stove for hours, stirring the pot. It's actually a lot easier than you think and the result is a delicious and comforting dinner. This recipe, from the New York Times, is perfect for Spring, using in-season, fresh asparagus but can easily be changed to use a different vegetable.
In my book, every good brunch starts with a mimosa--a bit of healthy OJ combined with fun & bubbly champagne. You can mix it up and change the juices (blood orange, grapefruit, etc), but this recipe from Spirited Entertaining is a classic.
Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo and we love celebrating with our own Mexican feast of chicken enchiladas. You can find a lot of enchilada recipes out there and you can probably even find some that are a little easier. However, you will not find one that is more delicious than this recipe from The Pioneer Woman. Taking the time to make your own cheesy sauce will have you and your guests reaching for seconds.
Although my kids are pretty picky when it comes to certain things, they both like bold flavors and different spices. Indian food is a popular choice in my house and cooking this Curried Chicken with the veges makes it an easy & delicious Sunday supper.
This week's installment of Sunday Suppers with Lunchbox Love includes two of our favorite dishes--pasta with pesto sauce and Caesar salad. With the amount of garlic in these two recipes, make sure you share this meal with people who already love you. :-)
"The Starfish Story" is a widely-used story with many versions adapted from "The Star Thrower" by Loren C. Eiseley - and worth sharing with your kids when they feel discouraged or powerless as we do right now with so many people suffering physically and emotionally in the Boston area.
Who doesn't love the sound of the sizzling fajitas, the onion/pepper aroma filling the air? This slow-cooker recipe, from 100 Days of Real Food, makes up for the lack of sizzle with big flavors and the convenience of a crockpot. The spice rub, peppers, and onions join together to make a mouth-watering dinner the whole family will love.
Sometimes one big dish will not satisfy everyone in the crowd. One person is not eating meat. One person's off dairy. And the kids refuse anything green. So, what's the answer for a Sunday supper that will make everyone happy without having you cooking 10 different things? A baked potato bar! Super easy for you and your whole family can create their own special meal. Win-win!
