Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Brussels Sprouts are a favorite winter vegetable that we enjoy very much, especially when we roast them with bacon. This recipe is super easy to make and  oh, so delicious! It is so easy that I would not even call this cooking. If you are one of these people who do not like Brussels sprouts, I might be able to convert you after you try this recipe. It is also a versatile one, because you could dress ip up or…

Cranberry Chutney with Apples

This Cranberry Chutney with Apples could be a delicious addition to every year Thanksgiving meal. I never buy the cans of cranberries from the store because I love to control the amount of sugar I put in my cranberry sauce. Then, I like to combine flavors and textures, so the cans absolutely do not work for me. Even for you, the ones out there that are in charge of the cooking during the holidays, please buy fresh cranberries and make your…

Roasted Kabocha Squash With Coconut Oil

Roasted squash is one of my favorite items on the table from October to December. I love the different varieties of pumpkin and squash you can find in the grocery stores. I also grew up knowing only about pumpkin, and I always associated it with sugar, as my grandma or my mom used to make only pumpkin pie, pumpkin strudel and sometimes pumpkin soup. This recipe is very easy to make and requires only few ingredients. I used Kabocha squash, but…

Mexican Chipotle Mushrooms

Mexican Chipotle Mushrooms is a wonderful recipe that I like a lot and make quite often. It is a very different, refreshing side dish that goes well with any type of meat. If you are a vegetarian or vegan, these mushrooms would go well on pasta or rice. You can also make great tacos. To make the recipe you need only few ingredients. I like to  use chipotle in a can but if you don't have that, we will discuss it in…

Baked Cheesy German Spaetzle Pasta with Caramelized Onion

I was running out of ideas for cooking one day and digging through my pantry I found a bag of German Spaetzle Pasta, an egg pasta that is a traditional staple for many German households.  I do not cook a lot with egg pasta, so I had no idea what to do with it. I know Germans combine Spaetzel pasta with caramelized onions and cheese, so I thought that I could try to make a version of baked mac and cheese, but with Spaetzle…

Easy Green Peas with Ham- Spanish Recipe

We are finally back home from our vacation in Spain. We stayed in Madrid but traveled a little bit to Sevilla and Granada for few days. Granada is my daughter's favorite city in Spain and she wanted to take us there, where her heart seems to be. I tried to rest as much as possible, but I was also excited to be in Spain, researching Spanish cuisine and learning about the food. I came back with cooking books, recipes and lots of ideas…

Super Easy Green Peas Recipe

Soooo, how do you like your peas? How do you make them? Do you have a love-hate relationship with them? I personally love them. I use peas in many recipes of soups, salads or as a side dish. I have more access to the frozen ones here, where I live,  but sometimes, late summer, I find them at the Farmers Market and buy them. So sweet and so delicious! The recipe today is an "easy-peasy" one! Perfect for a quick…

Easy Creamy Spinach

This Easy Creamy Spinach recipe could be a great addition to your collection of side dishes for the holidays and not only. In my house, we eat it all the time even when it is not the holiday season. Even my daughter, when she was abroad, called me and asked me how to make it, because she was craving "that green thing you make that I like and tend not to share with people"! Creamy and delicious, this recipe was one of…

Vegetarian Wild Rice And Mushroom Stuffing

Today I am going to share with you a recipe that uses wild rice, but before I do that, what do you know about this little grain? Did you know that the wild rice in United States is mainly produced in Minnesota and a little bit in California? Wild Rice, which is Minnesota's State Grain, is almost as old as history itself. In Minnesota it is cultivated by Native Americans who consider the grain a sacred component of their culture. It was…
