If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you know that I love everything Milk Street does. Always phenomenal. If you’re already a Milk Street fan, you are going to love Milk Street Tuesday Nights Mediterranean. If you’re new to Milk Street, you’re in for a treat. They are absolute minimalists on everything but flavor. They’ll get you from the counter to the table in the easiest way possible. And they’re really strong flavorists.

I get a super lemony bundt cake on my birthday every year, and I like their Spaghetti with Lemon Pesto even better. It’s terrifically lemony. The lemons, almonds and cheese play beautifully together. It is absolute perfection. And Milk Street’s letting me share the recipe with you!

The recipe calls for 4 lemons, but only the zest is used, so make plans for that juice or use them to infuse water.

Jen’s Hibachi Fried Rice

I had a little leftover brown rice from making sushi last night, so I thought I’d turn it into breakfast. 😀 Yeah, I know – A hibachi refers to the actual heating device, and I am using it to refer to the vegetables typically served at a hibachi restaurant. Hopefully, you’ll forgive that after you taste this!

Jen’s Buffalo Chicken Wing Burgers

mmmmm. Wings. They take forever and I came in too hungry and impatient after my workout, so Buffalo chicken wing burgers it is! All the taste, and they’re fabulously lazy! And bonus – they’re way better for you!

Jen’s Broccoli Salad

Everyone knows and loves broccoli salad, but there’s traditionally 2 cups of mayo in this much salad along with some sugar. That’s yummy, but we can do so much better than that! This has less than 1/6th of the usual added fat, and some lovely fresh juice. Better for you and more flavor. Boom! Hope you love it!

Jen’s Broccoli Soup in the Instant Pot

Broccoli Soup. This is my favorite thing to make in the Instant Pot. The original recipe was from The Healthy Meal Prep Instant Pot cookbook. I loved the concept, but it was unseasoned and light on produce. My version tastes a lot like that mall restaurant we all used to know and love, Olga’s. If you know that name, you were probably a teenager in the 80s, too! LOL!

I’ve made two batches in a row a few times so I can fill a few Mason jars to find in the fridge later. So good! Continue reading “Jen’s Broccoli Soup in the Instant Pot”

Spanish Tortilla/Tortilla Española recipe and cookbook review: Tapas and other Spanish plates to share

@RylandPetersAndSmall @RylandPeters #RylandPetersAndSmall #RylandPeters #tapas

A million years ago, or 23 to be slightly more accurate, my husband and I traveled around Spain, Portugal, and Morocco on our honeymoon. The trip was beyond amazing! The Prado Museum and Plaza Major in Madrid were fabulous. The salt-crusted fish and possibly skinny dipping on the coast in Marbella were delicious. And in Seville, we fell desperately in love with the flamenco shows and Maria Luisa Park. And the tapas and thick hot chocolate. Tapas everywhere. It’s a garlic-lover’s dream.
