Really, REALLY Good Chicken Recipe

Really, REALLY Good Chicken Recipe | cookingontheweekends.com

Would you ever order a dish on a menu called, “Really, REALLY Good Chicken?”  I most certainly hope so. Recipe titles come naturally to me as I’m cooking.  And if you’ve been following my recipes for a while, you know I’m somewhat notorious for having very long titles.  Some (well, my husband), would say too long. As, […]

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 […]

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 […]

This meal is beautiful, comforting, full of delicious summer flavors, and came together for a few simple reasons . . . . First — and by far the most interesting — my husband, who’s been a Vegetarian (Pescatarian, really), for the past twenty-one years, was craving meatballs and suddenly and without warning, decided he wanted […]

Grilled Split Pea Vegetarian Burger Recipe {Gluten-Free}

Grilled Split Pea Vegetarian Burger Recipe | cookingontheweekends.com

I never know what to call something like this, other than a “burger.”  The truth is though, in my humble opinion a burger is a sandwich that includes a bun, cooked meat, and usually other ingredients such as cheese, onion, tomatoes, etc.  That said, it simply doesn’t sound as delicious to call this a vegetarian […]

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), […]

Five-Minute Mexican Blackened Salmon Recipe - Cooking On The Weekends

My recipe ideas come from anywhere and everywhere:  talking with people, colors I see, the weather, my mood, my fruit bowl, food images in magazines, walking down an aisle in the market, my kids, a book, a TV show, the seasons, and the list goes on. The idea for this recipe came to me when […]

December 2-Cinnamon Chicken Butternut Squash Lasagna Recipe

I’m always in search of the perfect lasagna noodles — those that aren’t pasta, that is. I love finding new ways to separate layers of delicious sauce and melting cheese in a unique, gluten-free way.  With two gluten-free eaters in my house, I think this way about a lot of foods I prepare.
