Minestrone Soup with Gluten-Free Matzah Balls

Ah, the dreaded “P” word.  The word that we Jews cringe when anyone utters it before Purim. Yes, I’m referring to “Pesach”!  HA!  It’s not that overwhelming, is it?  (Insert shoulder shrug emoji here).  And so it begins. Searching, sweeping, and cleaning out old, weird stuff from the fridge (you know, the stuff you forgot to … [Read more…]

Zucchini Pappardelle with Mushroom Coconut Cream Sauce

For this recipe, I broke out the spiralizer.  Yes, I joined the bandwagon last year and bought a hefty one to use for this recipe (I have the Brieftons Tri-Blade Spiralizer in bright green).

Lamb Bacon French Fries topped with Quail Eggs and Chopped Parsley
