Lemon Rosemary Salmon
This is the perfect romantic dinner for two when served with an Oregon Pinot Noir, crusty bread, wild rice, and salad.
Chicken Breasts with Herb Basting Sauce
Chicken breasts basted with a medley of herbs. Can also be made with skinless, boneless meat.
Insalata di Finocchi e Avocado (Fennel and Avocado Salad)
In this salad, soft avocado goes perfectly with crispy fennel, the sweetness of one complementing the freshness of the other. Adding a dash of nutmeg makes this fragrant blend of flavors even more interesting. An impromptu salad, but one of my favorites.
Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops
These are SO SIMPLE, yet so good - they taste just like steak! The chops can also be broiled in the oven.
Chakchouka (also called shakshouka) is a Tunisian and Israeli dish of tomatoes, onions, pepper, spices, and eggs. It's usually eaten for breakfast or lunch, but I think it's tasty anytime. And it's easy to make. It is similar to the Turkish dish 'Menemen' and to the Latin American breakfast dish 'Huevos Rancheros.'
Ethiopian Cabbage Dish
My Ethiopian friend brought this dish to a potluck and I've been making it ever since. It is healthy and delicious. Do not add liquid. The cabbage and potatoes release enough moisture on their own.
Lemony Steamed Fish
Mild flavored, flaky fish fillets. Any number of different types of fish will work, and you can increase the recipe easily. Try halibut, cod, salmon, red snapper, trout, etc. Serve with a white and wild rice blend.
Simple Roasted Butternut Squash
Butternut squash is so good on its own, that barely any seasoning is needed. This recipe is so simple and easy.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts
This recipe is from my mother. It may sound strange, but these are really good and very easy to make. The Brussels sprouts should be brown with a bit of black on the outside when done. Any leftovers can be reheated or even just eaten cold from the fridge. I don't know how, but they taste sweet and salty at the same time!
