Those of you that have been following me know that our pediatrician suggested we give the babies peanut butter three times a week. You also know that I’ve been determined to make the delivery of said peanut butter as mess free as possible. So on today’s peanut butter adventures, I give you Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies.

We recently took the babies to their 1 year check up. Among other things, the doctor told us to give them peanut butter 3 times a week. I needed a way to do this without all of the mess. So I used the idea behind the carrot coconut bites to make a chocolate chip peanut butter bites recipe. Continue reading “Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bites”
April 24th is Sechseläuten in Zurich and I thought with all of the beautiful Spring weather we’ve had we should partake in this Spring festival even though we’re not in Zurich. And you know me what better way to celebrate than with food and what better than a classic Swiss dish like Cheese Fondue. Continue reading “Easy Cheese Fondue”
Blintzes are a decadent sweet European dessert filled with a delicious sweet cheese mixture or fruit. It’s extremely rich and delicious and even though it’s decadent it isn’t hard to make. This cheese blintz with raspberry sauce is the perfect Easter dessert. Actually, it’s the perfect anytime dessert.
Chicken Marsala with Mushrooms is one of my favorite Italian dishes. This dish holds a special place in my heart because it reminds me of some of the best times in high school. The end the softball season (also the end of the school year). But at the end of the season, the coach would treat the team to dinner. Those were great times and this dish makes me reminisce on the good ol’ days.
Monday is Holi the Hindu Spring festival in India. Holi is also know as the festival of color because during the celebration people throw paint at each other. There’s music and food and dancing during the celebration. It’s a wonderful time. Unfortunately, we will not be able to make it to the celebration (the New York celebration is serious) so I thought it might be nice to celebrate in our own way. So we are making pakoras. Pakoras are fritters with lots of Indian spices. One of our favorite types is gobi pakora or the cauliflower fritter. Gobi pakoras were served at last year’s celebration so it’s fitting that we make them for our mini Holi celebration.
Pasta puttanesca is not a dish I would typically make. Though now that I think about, I should. Why is it not a dish I’d make at home? Because it has anchovies in it. I used to not like anchovies. But I’m coming around to it. And this pasta puttanesca with shrimp is one of the most simple and delicious dishes ever.
General Tso’s is a mouth watering dish with a kick of heat. After several conversations I’ve decided to add more meatless (or at least those that have fish) dishes. It’s important to me that everyone who follows the blog is happy and feels included. Though, I used to incorporate vegetarian dishes via Meatless Mondays I seem to have moved away from it. But I promise this dish will make up for it. The sauce in this General Tso’s Tofu has layers of flavor. All I can say is that it tastes like another bowl (and another and another).
As the new year approaches I am thinking about my goals and the future. Looking forward to a long life and new food adventures. So why not hedge my bet with a bowl of noodles. Noodles signify longevity and what could be better than that. Of course, even if I wasn’t looking for those noodles give me a little good luck I would still love Cold Sesame Noodles. It’s a carb thing.
During the holidays I’m always looking for a dish that is super comforting and quick. I always remember my friends having some sort of fish stew during the holidays. Camarones guisado is one of those dishes to make whether it’s the holiday season or not. There’s a sense of melancholy during the holidays that warrants a dish like this. Of course, depending on where you live and your background, the holidays might be done a little differently. But everyone needs a good soothing stew.
