Meyer Lemon and Avocado Oil Dressing

March 31, 2013

One thing I always have in my fridge is homemade salad dressing. A lot of people are intimidated and don’t end up making their own concoction but I am here to tell you- it takes all of five minutes to make. You can make it super healthy with limited amounts of fat. Speaking of fat- I am using something a bit different in this one- avocado oil. It is considered one of the ‘good fats’- it kind of has an acquired taste but I have decided I like it. I paired it with meyer lemon juice. Meyer lemons are in season right now and are super aromatic and very floral- kind of a cross between a lemon and and an orange. This is a great dressing to have on hand- it complements all sorts of greens and vegetables…

Cilantro and Dill Roast Chicken

March 26, 2013

I love making roast chicken, especially on a gloomy day, preferably a Sunday. The house smells divine and the whole meal is delicious. I made this one with Indian flavors including cilantro and dill. I also added garam masala to the mix which really boosted the flavor profile. If you don’t have garam masala, just skip it and stick with the aromatics. Either way the chicken will be absolutely delicious. continue >>

Coconut Shredded Cabbage

March 24, 2013

I think I have mentioned it many times that my husband loves cabbage.. me on the other hand, am not a fan of cabbage. I will eat it but it is not my first choice. This dish, I have to say, is delicious. I guess anything with coconut and peanuts is yummy.. This is a very easy dish to make, especially if you are lazy like me and buy the already shredded, packaged cabbage…

Mushroom & Broccoli with Balsamic Vinaigrette

March 20, 2013

I made this dish with the chicken piccata. It was quick and actually quite delicious. The trick was to use some balsamic vinaigrette. In my case I had some made in the fridge. If you don’t have any around, just add some balsamic vinegar and garlic and sauté the veggies till they are soft but not over done. It was a great accompaniment to the chicken!
