Ginger-Carrot Soba Noodles

Ginger-Carrot Soba Noodles | COOKINGONTHEWEEKENDS.COM

Are “spiralized” vegetables to the food world what “bedazzled” shirts are to the clothing world? The word “bedazzle” is funny.  Right?  Are you with me?   And then there’s the “bedazzler” (yes, this makes me giggle, too) — which you need if you’re to bedazzle anything! Still a little funny to me, though not quite […]

Rustic Garlic Confit Mashed Potato Recipe

Rustic Garlic Confit Mashed Potatoes | cookiingontheweekends.com

Do you ever have a bite of a delicious food, and without intentionally doing so, you close your eyes and moan a bit?  (Bet you’ve never been asked that before!) This has happened to me with a few times recently — with the Whole Thai Snapper and Warm Castelvetrano Olives, and yes, these Rustic Garlic […]

Fire Roasted Tomato Tortilla Soup Recipe

Frost in LA and Roasted Tortilla Soup Recipe | cookingontheweekends.com

I didn’t intend to make tortilla soup — nor is this a traditional tortilla soup. Last Sunday was incredibly cold and I was making a casual family dinner to bring to my parents’ house.  I set out to make a roasted tomato soup of sorts to warm us all up, and it tasted extremely reminiscent […]

Most Popular Recipes of 2014 | cookingontheweekends.com

I appreciate you all for being a part of my year  — for visiting my site, looking at my photographs, reading bits about my life, trying my recipes and leaving me comments.   All of this truly means a lot to me — it makes all of the thought and time I put into my work […]

Vegan Creamy Mushroom Soup Recipe

Skinny Cream of Mushroom Soup | cookingontheweekends.com

There’s Cream of Mushroom Soup and then there’s Creamy Mushroom Soup. Both are delicious, but the Creamy Mushroom Soup is made sans cream — though you’d never know it.  Never. The super creamy texture comes from the puréeing process, which is best achieved in a powerful blender.  This, plus the earthy flavor of the mushrooms […]

Smashed Potato Pizza Crust

When it comes to cooking, I know I toot my own horn from time to time — but, I don’t often call my creations “brilliant” (even if I’m thinking it).  And while I don’t want the horn to toot to loud, I’m quite certain this recipe is brilliant. There, I said it. One ingredient (plus […]

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, […]

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 […]
