April

Ginger Soy Fish

As Easter quickly approaches, forgive me small nod to a Lenten tradition that reaches far and wide in this part of the world. Fish fries are a Friday tradition in the Midwest - before, during, and after Lent - but perhaps this last Friday of Lent calls for a special twist on fried fish!

Lemon Cannoli Crepes with Blueberry Sauce

Bring a bit of Italian dessert to the breakfast or brunch table with tender crepes filled with lemon cannoli cream and tangy blueberry sauce. Perfect as an Easter brunch showcase, you can also make the blueberry sauce and lemon cannoli cream in advance!

Thai Turkey Soup

The next time you make turkey or chicken, chop those leftovers and get ready for a quick Thai soup that's packed with noodles, coconut milk, and as much spice as your heart desires. It's also designed to have dinner ready in about a half hour!

Seared Sirloin Steak with Miso Butter Mushrooms

Make steak work for midweek meals when you sear it beautifully and crown it with decadent miso butter mushrooms. The best part? It can be on the table in a half hour. Pour a glass of wine and get your cast iron skillet ready!

Muffin Monday: Blueberry-Banana Muffins

When you put together a batch (or two) of muffins and freeze the results, you set yourself up for the delightful experience of regular, warm muffins with a morning cup of coffee. Get ready for your favorite new tradition!

Tzatziki Party Dip

While technically a dip, this tzatziki inspired dish seems spoon-worthy and ideal for serving at large gatherings or just digging into with warm pita for a perfect warmer weather lunch or snack. Add shredded chicken and you might even have lunch for all summer!
