Papaya-Avocado Salad with Cactus Pear-Lemon Vinaigrette

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

Sometimes I like to talk a lot.  (So I’m told, anyway.)  Today though, I’m going to get right to it — because I’m starving! I think you should make this for dinner.  If not tonight, then tomorrow.  It’s bursting with fresh flavors, it’s succulent and juicy and it presents beautifully. I think you’ll enjoy it […]

Summer Squash Spaghetti and Pesto Meatballs | cookingontheweekends.com

This meal is beautiful, comforting, full of delicious summer flavors, and came together for a few simple reasons . . . .

Grilled Jalapeño Pepper Jack Turkey Burger Recipe

May 11-Grilled Jalapeño Pepper Jack Turkey Burger Recipe

True story. . . I’d told my parents we’d be there for my Dad’s birthday dinner at 5:30 PM, with dinner in tow. At 5:05 PM, I heard noises in the kitchen.  I walked in to find my (usually perfect, and always adorable) dog licking up the last bite of the dinner I’d just finished […]

Cuban-Style Chicken Stew Recipe

Cuban-Style Chicken Stew Recipe | Cooking On The Weekends

New culinary word or the day: alcaparrado.  Ever heard of it?  I hadn’t either, until a few days ago when I read a Cuban recipe in the March issue of Savuer Magazine. Alcaparrado is a mix of pimento-stuffed olives, capers and raisins.  This blend of deliciousness is typically found in a rich, hearty cuban stew […]

Who doesn’t love a crispy, juicy breaded piece of chicken!?  (A rhetorical question — I want to think you all love it!) With two gluten-free eaters in my house, I’m always looking for new and creative ways to do this without bread.  I have two super delicious, favorite recipes — the one posted here (obviously), […]

Kotosoupa Recipe {Greek Chicken-Lemon Soup}

Kotosoupa Recipe-Greek Chicken Lemon Soup | cookingontheweekends.com

Move over Chicken Noodle, here comes something a little more interesting, and perhaps even more comforting. After I ate every last bit of the Skorthalia that I loved so much at The Greek Authentic Cuisine, I had a bowl of an incredibly delicious, traditional Greek soup called Kotosoupa.  Whether you want to soothe a cold, […]
