Purple Sweet Potato Soup with Spicy Chile Oil

Purple Sweet Potato--Soup with Spicy Chile Oil | cookingontheweekends.com

 This soup is really this color.  It’s this purple, this bright, and this beautiful. The purple of these Stokes Sweet Potatoes only becomes deeper and more intense when they’re cooked.  And the color varies slightly depending on the type of preparation.  When we made the Chile-Lemon Purple Sweet Potato Fries, for example, after roasting with […]

I love strolling through a Farmer’s Market or the produce section in stores to see all of the stunning colors.  Everything from broccoli and mangoes to Dragon fruit and apples — and there are so many gorgeous shades of purple! A couple of years ago I was introduced to — and proceeded to fall in love […]

What’s the best compliment one can get about the food they cook? Of course we all find it delightful to hear people say how delicious it is, how beautiful it is, etc.  However, my favorite compliment is when someone tries something they actively don’t like, and they love it.

Does anyone you live with you often buy food you already have, not having looked around (including behind things) before shopping? I’m not going to name names, but suffice it to say it’s not my boys (8 & 10 years-old), and clearly not the dog, so . . . . I love you, honey. This […]

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. I started with the stunning Cactus Pear-Lemon Vinaigrette, and from there, my first requirement for each ingredient was […]

Spicy Quick Pickled Broccoli | cookingontheweekends

I loved family dinner parties at my grandparents’ house. My perception as a little girl, was that my grandparents were fancy. No matter what the occasion, Christmas Eve or a typical weekend evening, the table was set much like that in the upstairs dining room in Downton Abbey. Okay, so my grandparents didn’t use a […]

Chipotle Bacon Zucchini Cake Recipe

Chipotle Bacon Zucchini Cake | cookingontheweekends.com

Recipes just happen upon me sometimes. A friend brought me zucchini, freshly picked from her backyard garden, I had a tasty chunk of Kerrygold Aged Cheddar in the fridge, and my son wanted bacon. So when I made my son the bacon, I (naturally) made extra and left the grease in the pan.  Then I […]
