Winter Citrus Honey Melt

Winter Citrus Honey Melt | cookingontheweekends.com

I know, I know, citrus and melting cheese might sound like a bizarre combination.  I suppose it is — but, it’s also interesting and super delicious. Citrus is more typically paired with softer aged cheeses, like Cashel Blue or Gorgonzola, and with good reason — it’s fabulous!  (Goat cheese is also a lovely choice.)  I’d […]

Black-Eyed Pea-Spinach and Mushroom Gratin Recipe | Cooking On The Weekends

It might be a big stretch for me to call this a form of a New Year’s Hoppin’ John dish, but I’m going to anyway. In the South, folks believe that eating black-eyed peas on New Year’s day will bring good luck and prosperity in the new year.  Hoppin’ John is the name of a […]

These dynamos have a place at breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in-between.  From grilled cheese sandwiches, to sparkling cocktails and cookies — these wonderfully sweet berries, chock full of nutrients, are finding their […]

Honey Ginger Broiled Grapefruit Recipe | Cooking On The Weekends

Remember the fantastic Organic Mixed Fruit Box from Melissa’s, that was waiting for me at my door a few weeks ago? The smooth and creamy avocados made their way into my favorite guacamole, the pears were poached in port wine, the lemons topped a Lemon-Basil Pizza, and just look at what happened to the grapefruit!

Simple Honey-Lemon Roasted Chicken

Simple Honey-Lemon Roasted Chicken | Cooking On The Weekends

The other day a friend asked if my recipes are “involved.” “Why yes,” I said.  “I like to make a day of it.”  It’s totally true for me  — the longer the cooking project the better.  However, I don’t always have the time, and I realize that this certainly isn’t the case for everyone.  So […]

Ancho Chile-Red Wine Grape Roasted Chicken and Quinoa on http://cookingontheweekends.com #chickenrecipes

Many of the recipes I create come from my own food cravings. I woke up a few weeks ago in need of a warm, cozy comfort food meal.  And not for breakfast — but for that evening. I wanted something with rich, bold, warming flavors. And I wanted to make a project of it, because for me, […]

One of my favorite food memories is when I’d open the front door to my house and immediately take in the incredible aroma of my mom sautéing onions. Seems like she was always sautéing onions.  They would go in almost everything she cooked.  They still do. by
