Winter Citrus Honey Melt

Winter Citrus Honey Melt | cookingontheweekends.com

I know, I know, citrus and melting cheese might sound like a bizarre combination.  I suppose it is — but, it’s also interesting and super delicious. Citrus is more typically paired with softer aged cheeses, like Cashel Blue or Gorgonzola, and with good reason — it’s fabulous!  (Goat cheese is also a lovely choice.)  I’d […]

Warm Castelvetrano Olives

Warm Castelvetrano Olives | cookingontheweekends.com

A huge crowd pleaser, unbelievably delicious, and quite possibly the most simple hors d’oeuvre or appetizer you’ll ever make. Life is super busy.  Too busy!  So it’s  important that my husband and I carve out time for the occasional “date night.” And when we do, it’s also important that we eat somewhere delicious and inspiring.  (For me, […]

The Everything Cookie

You might be thinking The Everything Cookie is similar to a “Kitchen Sink” cookie.  You know, the cookies you throw everything into (M & M’s, oats, raisins, nuts, etc.)? Think again.

Roasted Butternut Squash Sage Butter

Roasted Butternut Squash Sage Butter | cookingontheweekends.com

I know, it’s a little bit redundant.  I could hardly call butternut squash a “nut” squash, though. I absolutely love blending delicious flavors into butter — you can do this with almost anything, and then use it on almost anything.  (This is called a compound butter.) Imagine the flavors of earthy sage, sweet squash, and […]
