Shrimp with White Beans, Spinach and Tomatoes

Share

The flavor in this dish was unexpected and wonderful. The lemon zest and juice brought this dish to life. I loved it so much I had two big servings. I also had it the next day for lunch. I love a meal that makes for good leftovers.

I love this dish for a number of reasons: […]

Gnocchi Verde (Spinach and Ricotta Dumplings)

Share

One of the many reasons I love shopping at Trader Joe’s is because of their frozen food section. They have the most interesting frozen vegetables. Two of my favorites are their sliced peppers and cleaned and sliced leeks. They sell 10 oz. bags of frozen, chopped spinach too, which are perfect for this recipe. For […]

Shrimp and Grits

Share

This is a really quick and easy weeknight meal, and if you’re a fan of both shrimp and cheesy grits, this is the recipe for you! I bought a big bag of grits from Trader Joe’s a while ago and wasn’t sure what to do with them until I found this recipe.

According to the Houston […]

Spinach and Chickpea Curry

Share

This side-dish is easy to throw together and it’s packed with flavor. Using canned chickpeas and canned (or boxed) diced-tomatoes really speeds up the process. We ate this one night as a side dish, and another night on brown rice as a vegetarian main course. This dish has an Indian flair, and it makes your […]

Spinach Brownies

Share

My cousin Erica posted a picture of these spinach brownies on Facebook last week and I thought they looked delicious. I love having something in the refrigerator that’s quick and healthy for lunch and these are just the ticket. They’re good both warm or cold, straight from the fridge.   The boys wouldn’t go near these […]

Braised Coconut Spinach and Chickpeas with Lemon

We try to have meatless Mondays in our home and last Monday was no exception. It makes my son the vegetarian very happy. He never likes to eat things like this, he’s just happy that we’re not hurting any animals.

I am always drawn to recipes that stew vegetables in coconut milk. Yum! I made a […]

Creamy Spinach Enchiladas with Red Cabbage Slaw

Share

This meal was surprisingly delicious.   There’s something about the creamy sauce on the vegetarian enchiladas paired with the savory cabbage slaw that makes this meal comforting and delightful.   I was skeptical when I made it because it doesn’t call for any spices or strong flavors like garlic, onion, cumin, etc.  I thought it might be […]

Chicken Florentine Style

Ok, so this isn’t the best picture, I didn’t arrange the dish very well, but boy was this a great dinner. I can’t wait to make it again. The sauce on the chicken is to die for. I actually wish I had made some extra sauce, it was that good. The shallots, wine and garlic […]

The CSA that I belong to on Shelter Island has its first distribution over Memorial Day weekend. I’m responsible for contributing the recipes to the weekly newsletter, so you’ll see me posting a lot of vegetable recipes for the next couple of months. I love the CSA because I’m forced to cook things that I […]

Spinach Salad with Chicken and Apples

Share

I have been making this spinach salad for years – longer than I’ve been married actually. I have no idea where I found the recipe. I’m so happy to finally be posting it. I made it last night as a light dinner and we gobbled it up. Not the boys, of course. That said, they […]
