Love how food evokes so many memories from growing up. Sweet and sour spare ribs were one of my childhood favourites. There never seemed to be enough sauce to put over rice so definitely need to increase the ingredients. Thankful to find the cookbook that contained the recipe and the page reflects how often we made this. Definitely a family fave for mine.
My favourite autumn dessert is apple crisp. Love the combination of apples, cinnamon, sugar and oats and always served with my vanilla ice cream. A perfect sweet treat for Thanksgiving!
Preheat over to 400F. Toss asparagus with EVOO, salt and pepper. Roast 15-20 minutes depending on size of asparagus. Sprinkle Parmesan Cheese for the last few minutes in the oven.
This is the ultimate in simplicity for those days you are craving pasta but don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking. Martha Stewart’s One Pot Pasta to the rescue.
I was never really a fan of beets until I had this amazing Arugula Salad with Roasted Beets, Squash & Shallots by Gwyneth Paltrow. I was happy to find the recipe online via Bare Beauty and have made it many times since. It is a go to salad for a friend of mine who luckily made it for a friend’s 50th birthday dinner. I loved the roasted beets so much that I now incorporate them regularly into my homemade meals. It truly was love at first beet.
My Saturday Blues Cocoa Chili Smoothie is a mix of frozen blueberries, a banana, flax seeds, hemp hearts and McCormick’s Cocoa Chili Blend Spice. Blend and Serve. Enjoy!
Risotto is an amazing comfort food and surprisingly simple to make once you have attempted it a few times. Yes it takes a long time and you need to be super attentive but there is something truly mindful about the process. I love this Shrimp, Asparagus and Dill Risotto recipe – a spring take on Italian comfort food.
