Compressed Watermelon Salad

I have so much to talk about that I don’t even know where to begin.  (If my husband were editing this, he would have just told me I’ve already told you more that you need to know.)  Since the editor is out, I’ll carry on. 😉The thing is, I have a lot on my mind […]

Making Kimchi has been on my culinary bucket list for years.  (Everyone has that list, right?) I think it’s definitely something many of us think of as a daunting task — at least I did.

CACIQUE-Mango-Avocado Salad with Panela "Croutons" and Chipotle Crema Mexicana-pink-green-gold-ceramic bowls | cookingontheweekends.com

This is a sponsored post by Cacique Inc. and Society Culinaria.  And as always, all opinions are my own. When you cut Cacique’s Panela cheese and fry it over high heat in a bit of oil, you can sear it — just as you would steak.  No joke! Rather than melt into a sauce, the […]

Papaya Avocado Salad with Cactus Pear Lemon Vinaigrette | cookingontheweekends.com

This is definitely one of those dishes that might as well be a painting.  (Well, at least an edible one.)  It’s one of my recipes that came together as much by color as it did by flavor.
