Friday Flowers: Lemon Blossoms and Hatch Chile-Agave Compound Butter Recipe

Hatch Chile-Agave Compound Butter Recipe | Cooking On The Weekends

A lot of things in my life make me smile.  Some are big . . . When my mom says she’s having a good day. When my boys feel proud of themselves. The sound of my boys laughing together. My sweet brother. And some are little . . . by

Grilled Chile-Lime Corn on the Cob Recipe and Little Something Sweet . . .  | Cooking On The Weekends

It’s the little things. Sometimes it’s the most simple, littliest things that can make me happy. Last week we walked out our front door, just like we had a million times before — only this time we noticed that we had house guests.   The best, sweetest, most delightful house guests possible — and they can […]

Compound Butter Recipes | Cooking On The Weekends

To have great success while cooking, you must start with the best ingredients possible.  This is true whether we’re talking about anything from a fresh tomato to pasta, and of course, to butter!  I’ve been using Kerrygold butter for the past year or so — and don’t foresee using another butter in the near future. […]

Herbed Garlic Bread Recipe


If you’ve been following me for a while you know my eight-year-old son has Celiac Disease and is therefore 100% gluten-free.  And that my sweet husband became gluten-free, too, to stand in solidarity with him. When my son was diagnosed close to three years ago, our house became pretty much totally gluten-free. Well, I have […]

Thanksgiving Recipe: Smoky Paprika-Bacon Roasted Turkey


As you know from yesterday’s Cornbread Stuffing recipe, Thanksgiving is full of wonderful food memories for me — and it happens to be my favorite holiday!  After all, it’s all about food! I go nuts with the turkey, and I love the entire process.  If time permits,  I highly recommend brining your turkey.  Brining will […]

Potato Spinach Gratin


Talk about vegetarian comfort food! Oh my! And you know what’s amazing about this? It’s full of potatoes and delicious creaminess, but it isn’t too rich or one bit heavy.  It is however, delicious, packed with flavor, and satisfying! I love the layering process involved in creating this incredible gratin.  It definitely feels like I’m […]

Thanksgiving Recipe: Hazelnut Brown Butter Brussels Sprouts


Brussels sprouts are delicious.  Don’t try to tell me otherwise!  And here, they are covered in a light hazelnut brown butter.  You don’t really need to hear much more than “brown butter” to want to make this, right? Even if you think turkey, stuffing, cranberries, or Apple-Sweet Potato Soup are the best part of Thanksgiving, […]

Apricot Glazed Carrots


To be honest with you, my favorite part about the Jewish holidays — well, all holidays — is the food. With Rosh Hashanah beginning in two days, I’m still working on my small plates of sweet, delicious side dishes that will make up the main course.  Next up . . . . Apricot Glazed Carrots! […]

Friday Flowers: Trumpet Vines and Salted, Spiced Caramel Pumpkin Gelato


As a kid, I was always excited when October arrived, and a special, seasonal pumpkin ice-cream would arrive at our local Baskin-Robbins ice-cream store.  I thought it was so delicious.  And while I’m sure it still is, I’ve since learned a thing or two about cooking since then, and created my own — kicking it […]

Salted, Spiced Caramel Sauce


This weekend I’m serving Salted, Spiced Caramel Pumpkin Gelato!  Yum!  It’s all about using the flavors of fall. Whenever I make a recipe with many components, I try to get some of them done ahead of time.  So… today we’re making the caramel portion of the gelato. This is very similar to the salted caramel […]
