I know it's Fall, not Spring but it's so nice to have a staple few items that can create tasty and creative dishes! Spring rolls certainly can look fancy (especially if you can roll them up better than I can!) and the filling options are endless!
This quick recipe is tasty, open to creativity and a hit in most crowds!
Meat sauce with vegetables, hidden and revealed, on top of whole wheat pasta.
There are days when pasta is calling your name.
And this day was it!
Do you ever put ingredients together and just know it's going to taste good?
When I read this blog post, I wanted to try it!
And being the impatient person that I am,
The next day!
Without looking into the ingredients and my inventory...
My honey is taking courses to get his master's degree and had a huge paper he was working on all day one weekend. He had a sudden craving for biscotti to go along with his tea, so instead of going to the nearby (and overpriced) grocery store, I decided to make my own! Turns out, it is quite easy and quick. I used this recipe, which is a nice foundation. In the future, I would add chocolate or almonds or some other kind of flair to increase the flavor.
I used my mixer for this, but you could beat by hand if you'd rather. Start off with the eggs, oil and sugar. Add anise flavoring (I used Amaretto since I did not have anise). Beat until blended.
Guys. This is SO easy. We love salmon and I make it frequently so I like to change up how I prepare it (my typical recipe is with an apricot sauce which is to die for- future post for sure!). For this meal, I used the Whole Foods app. Let me just say, if you do not have this app, GET IT! I find more recipes on it than anywhere else and they are healthy and the app is free!! Can't go wrong. Anyway, back to the recipe - I searched salmon and found this on the app. Of course, I made it my own based on what I did and didn't have...
I'm going to be honest. My husband is a better cook than I am. And he has a more sophisticated palate. I have been learning so much in the kitchen since marrying him, and I have to say, I gladly move over any day he wants to cook knowing my taste buds will thank me! This night, we were having steak and he decided to make a chimichurri sauce and now we will never go back. It's easy and oh so delicious!
Take it away, honey!
