Roasted Garlic-Basil Brown Rice Recipe | Cooking On The Weekends

The flavors in this bowl of comfort are a culinary transition from summer to fall.  The last of my dad’s beautiful, summer, garden basil blended with warm, creamy, slow roasted garlic.  Need I say more? by

Cardamom Buttermilk Roasted Chicken and Potatoes with Apple Spiced Brown Rice | Cooking On The Weekends

It’s that time of year again.  Okay, not quite — but, I’m really in the mood for comfort food, anyway. Let’s be real, there’s never a “wrong” time for a cozy, warmly spiced, super flavorful, one-pot-meal.  And this is one of my (almost) fall favorites. So let’s cook, shall we? by

Patagonian Toothfish in Sweet Red Pepper-Spinach Sauce

Patagonian Toothfish in Sweet Red Pepper-Spinach Sauce  | Cooking On The Weekends

Please don’t be turned off by its name!  There are no teeth in the fillets, I promise! You most likely know Patagonian Toothfish as Chilean Seabass (which is really just a more palatable name for it).  For many years this fish was on the Seafood Watch “red list.” Now though, if it’s marked with a […]

Chilled Cucumber-Basil Soup Recipe | Cooking On The Weekends

My husband goes through culinary phases. There was the juicing phase, then the bloody mary phase, followed by the kale phase, the hard boiled egg phase, margarita phase, salad phase, and now, making a strong comeback . . . . the juicing phase has returned. by

Vegetarian Chard Lasagna Recipe | Cooking On The Weekends

Coming from a family of gardeners, you’d think I’d have a green thumb.   Well, I don’t.  My thumb, if you will, is somewhere between brown and olive green — at best. by

Marinated Lemon-Garlic Roasted Crouton Recipe | Cooking On The Weekends

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know my nine-year-old son has Celiac Disease, and is therefor gluten-free.  You may also remember that my husband — to stand in solidarity with him — is also gluten-free. (Very sweet.) I do not abstain from gluten.  (I’m still sweet, though. ;-))  I have a […]

Smoky Lemon-Paprika Quinoa Recipe

Smoky Lemon Paprika Quinoa Recipe | Cooking On The Weekends

I love smoked paprika — and even more, I love when I’m able to add the word “smoky” to a recipe title.  It seems to add allure and mystery — and it always hints towards deliciousness. This is no ordinary quinoa my friends, each seed (yup, quinoa is a seed, not a grain), is packed […]

Miso Garlic and Ginger Tofu Recipe

Miso Garlic and Ginger Tofu | Cooking On The Weekends

Forgive me in advance for bragging. This is by far the most delicious, scrumptious tofu I’ve ever tasted.  We’re talking crazy good, can’t-stop-eating-it good, super-sad-when-it’s-gone good. These chunks of tofu sit in a gorgeous, quick and easy marinade, full of wonderful, aromatic flavors, for two days.  Yes, two days! by

Chipotle-Potato Mexican Lasagna Recipe {Gluten-Free}

Chipotle-Potato Mexican Lasagna Recipe {Gluten-Free} | www.cookingontheweekends.com

It’s the pretty celadon green casserole dish in these images that inspired this recipe. Though this isn’t typically how I create recipes, I love when it happens.  Normally I select the dish, pan, plates, etc.,  based on what I’ve cooked or want to cook.  Not the other way around. My mother-in-law gave me this lovely […]
