Several people have told me recently that these are their favorite posts, and I am eager to please you, gentle readers. You can find them all on my keepers board on pinterest.
Black-Eyed Pea Nachos from Whole Foods Market: inexpensive, quick, easy, meatless and my whole family liked them. So we’ll be making them again.
Chicken & Roasted Broccoli Salad with Goat Cheese from Perry’s Plate: light and tasty, we all enjoyed this. I made some couscous and mixed it in with my leftovers and it was pretty decent cold, too.
Jambalaya (pictured below) is an old recipe of mine I’ve tweaked slightly. It’s my favorite excuse for making chocolate bread pudding.
Dave Lieberman’s Noodle Kugel: if you’ve never had it, you ought to try it. My friend Blakely and I made some for an event at school and I think it was a hit.
Spinach and Cheese Strata from Annie’s Eats: I made this for a brunch, and added a pound of sage sausage (cooked, crumbled and layered in between the spinach and cheese.) Personally, I thought it was the best breakfast casserole I’ve ever made, and a bunch of people asked me for the recipe. I don’t think the sausage was necessary, but it was Easter and I wanted it to be filling and rich.
Split Pea Soup from Simply Recipes is a must-make if you’ve got a ham hock. I have omitted the leek and it’s still tasty.
