Pink Grapefruit + Champagne Punch

Pink Grapefruit + Champagne Punch

This pretty, pink punch was perfect for my birthday dessert party, and I thought the recipe would be equally appropriate for Valentine’s Day. It’s easy to throw together, it’s pink, and it’s seasonal!

Dijon + Thyme Chicken Breasts

Dijon + Thyme Chicken Breasts

The dijon, thyme, and wine make this recipe decidedly French-inspired, but the lack of butter and the use of chicken breasts keeps it New Years Resolution-friendly. I’m often critical of recipes claiming to be 30 minute meals, but this is legitimately quick. There isn’t much prep work–only gathering your 10 (or less!) ingredients, slicing a couple of shallots, and chopping some parsley for garnish if you want to.

Brown Butter + Herb Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash has come into the limelight in the past few years as a trendy pasta alternative, but it’s also just a wonderful vegetable. Whether you’re reducing the amount of pasta in your diet or trying to trick your kids into eating more veggies, it’s a great addition to your shopping list.

Sesame Seared Tuna with Ginger-Soy Kale + Kumquats

Sesame Seared Tuna with Ginger-Soy Kale + Kumquats

During the winter I usually crave warm, hearty meals, but every now and then, I still want something nice and light. After recently spending time in Switzerland–land of cheese, meat, and potatoes–I’ve had more and more of those days when I crave light, citrusy dishes. Some beautiful sushi grade tuna caught my eye in the market the other day. Instead of a ginger-orange-soy dipping sauce that’s often served with seared tuna, I opted for kumquats (because they looked so pretty and fresh) and a ginger-soy salad dressing for kale to make it more of a meal.

How to Use Beets for Natural Red Food Coloring

How to Use Beets for Natural Red Food Coloring

Valentine’s Day is just a few short days away, which means that all things red and pink are in full force. Pink buttercream! Red velvet cake! Pretty pink drinks! But when it comes to food coloring, the artificial stuff is bad news. I wanted to share a super easy way to use beets for a natural, preservative/chemical-free pink or red dye. Obviously you can just use a juicer to extract the beet juice, but if you a) don’t have a juicer, or b) don’t want to dirty up your juicer for just a few tablespoons of juice, read on…

Cranberry + Orange Sauce (Two Ways)

Cranberry + Orange Sauce (Two Ways)

In my opinion, cranberry sauce is a very necessary condiment for any Thanksgiving turkey. Every year my mom makes a raw cranberry and orange sauce–really more of a relish–that is super fresh and super easy. So easy, in fact, that it only requires three ingredients and about 5 minutes. I wanted to share her recipe and a cooked version–more of a sauce–as an homage to my momma and family traditions. These recipes are gluten free, vegan, nut free, dairy free, and you can easily substitute different sweeteners, making them well suited for just about any guest at your Thanksgiving table (or anytime)!

Buttermilk Winter Squash Waffles or Pancakes

Buttermilk Winter Squash Waffles or Pancakes

I make pancakes and waffles pretty frequently (FYI: you can use the same batter for both!), but I don’t think to share the recipe(s) often. Earlier this week a photo of my winter squash waffles was featured on Food52’s Instagram page and got a big response, which was a good reminder to share! Pumpkins are great, but there are a ton of other equally delicious, nutritious winter squashes around. I used what I call “bumpkin,” a butternut squash and pumpkin hybrid, which is obviously not a very common find. However, puree from just about any winter squash–butternut, acorn, delicata, kabocha, pumpkin–or even sweet potatoes would work in this recipe.

Lemon + Thyme Pork Chops

Lemon + Thyme Pork Chops

I’ve had too many dry pork chops in my life, and I’ve decided to change my ways. I discovered brines as a way to ensure you have juicy, tender, and flavorful pork chops (it works for other meats, too). A brine is just a salt water solution with aromatics like lemons, herbs, spices, etc. that serve as flavoring. The salt starts to break down the meat, making it more tender; that process is similar to how the acid in marinades work. The meat also soaks up some of the liquid, making it juicier. Even 30 minutes in a brine will make a huge difference!

Kale + Kumquat Salad

Kale + Kumquat Salad

I feel like I keep saying it, but thank goodness for citrus! This winter has been especially dreary, so I’m happy to have something in season to brighten the days. Kumquats are my new favorite wintertime treat. The skin is sweet, the inside is tangy, and they’re just so darn cute! (Since the peel is edible, I try to buy organic varieties when available.)

The trick to a good kale salad is letting the kale tenderize in an acidic dressing for a little while. The great news is that the kale tenderizes but doesn’t get soggy, so it’s perfect for make-ahead lunches and leftovers. I added salmon and some other “accessories” to my salad, but this one is easily customized.

Honey Broiled Grapefruit

Honey Broiled Grapefruit

I grew up eating grapefruit halves at breakfast. My mom lovingly sliced each and every segment before serving it to me (thanks, Mom!). Now grapefruits are one of my favorite breakfast/brunch items to serve when we have guests. To kick it up a notch, I like to broil them with a little honey. The broiler warms the grapefruit through and caramelizes the honey on top.
