Roasted Butternut Squash Ginger Bread Recipe - cookingontheweekends.com

This year we had a smaller Thanksgiving than usual and it was lovely — warm, peaceful and intimate.  Eleven of us fit around my parents’ beautiful dining room table, candles lit, kids giggling, dogs under the table, and my dad carving the turkey.  It was perfect — except for one thing . . . Circumstances […]

Chai Spiced Winter Oatmeal Recipe

Chai Spiced Winter Oatmeal | cookingontheweekends.com

A blend of Chai spices can warm your heart and soothe your soul. At least, I think it can. (And even more, I love how that sounds.) Much like a curry, there are many different blends of chai with various combinations of spices.  In this recipe I use cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and ginger and together they […]

Pumpkin Pie-Olive Oil Muffins and Cupcakes (Gluten-Free Recipe) | cookingontheweekends.com

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.

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 […]

When we’re talking about recipes, let’s be honest, the word “pumpkin” doesn’t really sound as delicious without the word “spiced” before or after it. In the culinary world, pumpkin is the heart of fall comfort foods.  After all, with its beautiful warm orange color, pumpkin can be rich, creamy and hearty.  Add a sprinkling of […]

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 […]

Tropical Pancakes {Gluten-Free Recipe}

Tropical Pancakes {Gluten-Free Recipe}

Tropical pancakes.  Does that even make sense!? Maybe not — however, as I mentioned when we dished up the Sweet and Spicy Pineapple Grilled Pork Chops, my family and I are going on a tropical beach vacation (today’s the day!), and I’ve been working tropical fruits into all sorts of recipes. by

And by “best,” I mean my favorites.   And by “Mother’s Day,” I mean a perfect excuse to make one of my favorite brunch recipes!  (Not that you should ever need an excuse to eat fantastic food!) by

Sausage Omelet-Filled Poblano Chile Pepper Recipe

Sausage-Pesto Omelet Filled Poblano Chile Pepper Recipe | cookingontheweekends.com

Though I really like to keep my focus on delicious food and cooking here, today I’ll share that lately I’ve been consumed with worry about some people in my life who I care deeply for.  One who isn’t well physically, one who isn’t well mentally, and then of course, those around them who are suffering […]
