Matzo Brei à la Florentine Recipe

Matzo Brei a la florentine-white-black-broken cracker | cookingontheweekends.com

I know, I know — could there be a more confusing recipe title?  There’s a lot going on here.  Let me (try) to explain . . . Matzo Brei is dish with Ashkenazi Jewish origins that’s traditionally made with matzo and eggs.  (Think scrambled eggs meet French toast.)  It’s commonly eaten during Passover when only […]

Light Spring and Summer Asparagus Fish Stew-blue-dill | cookingontheweekends.com

So it’s not quite summer, I know.  However, while this recipe is delicious now, it will be even better in the summer months when the corn and tomatoes are are at the peak of their season.

Fire Roasted Tomato Tortilla Soup Recipe

Frost in LA and Roasted Tortilla Soup Recipe | cookingontheweekends.com

I didn’t intend to make tortilla soup — nor is this a traditional tortilla soup. Last Sunday was incredibly cold and I was making a casual family dinner to bring to my parents’ house.  I set out to make a roasted tomato soup of sorts to warm us all up, and it tasted extremely reminiscent […]

Roasted Butternut Squash Sage Butter

Roasted Butternut Squash Sage Butter | cookingontheweekends.com

I know, it’s a little bit redundant.  I could hardly call butternut squash a “nut” squash, though. I absolutely love blending delicious flavors into butter — you can do this with almost anything, and then use it on almost anything.  (This is called a compound butter.) Imagine the flavors of earthy sage, sweet squash, and […]

Smoky Jalapeño Roasted Corn Recipe

Smoky Jalapeño Roasted Corn Recipe | Cooking On The Weekends

I love corn. And it’s no wonder because it’s so very sweet. As you probably know by now, I have a serious sweet tooth.  As far as I’m concerned if you love cookies, semisweet chocolate, and strawberries at the peak of their season, it only makes sense that you’d love corn.  And you know what […]

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 […]

Flying to another country to see a best friend you haven’t seen for years — that takes a long time, but when the plane lands, the excitement is overwhelming.
