Ginger-Carrot Soba Noodles

Ginger-Carrot Soba Noodles | COOKINGONTHEWEEKENDS.COM

Are “spiralized” vegetables to the food world what “bedazzled” shirts are to the clothing world? The word “bedazzle” is funny.  Right?  Are you with me?   And then there’s the “bedazzler” (yes, this makes me giggle, too) — which you need if you’re to bedazzle anything! Still a little funny to me, though not quite […]

Vegan Creamy Mushroom Soup Recipe

Skinny Cream of Mushroom Soup | cookingontheweekends.com

There’s Cream of Mushroom Soup and then there’s Creamy Mushroom Soup. Both are delicious, but the Creamy Mushroom Soup is made sans cream — though you’d never know it.  Never. The super creamy texture comes from the puréeing process, which is best achieved in a powerful blender.  This, plus the earthy flavor of the mushrooms […]

I love strolling through a Farmer’s Market or the produce section in stores to see all of the stunning colors.  Everything from broccoli and mangoes to Dragon fruit and apples — and there are so many gorgeous shades of purple!

Does anyone you live with you often buy food you already have, not having looked around (including behind things) before shopping? I’m not going to name names, but suffice it to say it’s not my boys (8 & 10 years-old), and clearly not the dog, so . . . . I love you, honey. This […]

No matter what the occasion, Christmas Eve or a typical weekend evening, the table was set much like that in the upstairs dining room in Downton Abbey. Okay, so my grandparents didn’t use a […]

Garlicky Coconut Gai Lan Recipe

Garlicky Coconut Gai Lan | cookingontheweekends.com

Gai Lan is Chinese Kale, commonly called Chinese Broccoli.  And the flavor reflects those names perfectly — slightly bitter like kale and slightly sweet like broccoli. At the Katie Chin book signing at Melissa’s produce, I was given a beautiful bundle of Gai Lan and immediately pictured it in a sauté pan, sizzling with a […]

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 […]

You know what I think is so bizarre? White asparagus! I know, your thinking, “fascinating, Valentina.”  (And in a bored tone, no less.)  Well let me tell you, it is fascinating — or interesting, at the very least. by

Sometimes I feel like I’m in a hurry all of the time.  Actually, I’ll be honest, I am in a hurry all of the time.  I’m always trying to fit as many things as I can into one day, and wishing for more hours all the while.  I know I’m not alone, so let’s do […]
