Spring Roundup

I was getting overwhelmed by my backlog of posts so I decided to do one roundup of recent dishes I’ve made that are worth sharing. Happy Spring! Braised Chicken with Salami & Oliveshttps://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1016251-braised-chicken-with-salami-and-olives?For a rainy, cool spring night, this take on chicken cacciatore in incredibly 

Lamb Meatballs with Spiced Tomato Sauce

Lamb Meatballs with Spiced Tomato Sauce

I had never made lamb meatballs before so wasn’t sure what to expect. But I’ve also never met a meatball I didn’t love and these did not disappoint! The cinnamon and cumin provide wonderful warmth to both the meatballs and the tomato sauce. The red 

Sheet-Pan Sausage Meatballs With Tomatoes and Broccoli

Sheet-Pan Sausage Meatballs With Tomatoes and Broccoli

Sheet-pan dinners aren’t just for weeknights. We had this tasty one Saturday night. I thought it was a winner — it combined so many of my favorite flavors into one easy to cleanup meal! Plus, the addition of broccoli provides the green veggie to round 

Roasted Salmon Glazed with Brown Sugar and Mustard

Roasted Salmon Glazed with Brown Sugar and Mustard

This is a no recipe recipe. Sam Sifton from the NYT Cooking has several of them – very few ingredients, adaptable, and after cooking the dish once you’ll have the “recipe” memorized. This salmon is so simple to make but really flavorful. You can experiment

I’ve adapted a delicious yet simple Colu Henry recipe to be even simpler and quicker without sacrificing flavor. This tomato and white bean stew is hearty, delicious, and can be adapted easily by adding greens for a few minutes before serving or even orzo or

This was a delicious and quick chicken marsala recipe. Most chicken marsala recipes have butter and some have cream. This recipe uses olive oil and no dairy. The sauce is so flavorful we didn’t miss the butter or cream at all. I increased the mushrooms 

Chocolate Dutch Baby

Chocolate Dutch Baby

I had never made a Dutch Baby before the pandemic. It was a dish I left to decadent brunches out. We love the Dutch Baby at one of our West Village favorites, Left Bank. But with no brunches out and endless time in the kitchen, 

Roasted Broccolini and Lemon with Parmesan

Roasted Broccolini and Lemon with Parmesan

We love broccoli and broccolini in our house. While roasting broccoli is my preferred method, I’ve always sauteed broccolini. For some (misguided) reason, I thought the stalky-nature of broccolini wouldn’t roast well. I came across this incredibly simple but delicious roasted broccolini recipe from Alison 

Macaroni & Cheese Soup with Broccoli

Macaroni & Cheese Soup with Broccoli

Charlotte declared this the best soup I’ve ever made! Her high praise might make up for some of those times I made a dish I thought she’d love and she really didn’t like it. There’s not much to describe other than it is basically mac
