My love affair with salads has been firmly accounted for on this blog. A couple of years ago I even devoted a whole week titled “Salad Scentral” with daily recipe posts to get the New Year started off on a healthy note. Well I have a couple of newbies to add to your rotation. And in a quick post, I will share the recipes, photos, and pleas for you to please make these two beauts at home! Your lunchbox will be very happy this week if you do!
Another Wednesday has arrived and I am amazed to be honest. Today is the 99th Woman Crush Wednesday episode. I get so much joy out of honoring a female chef each week. When I started this, I never thought about how many there would be, but I just focused on each and every one. Giving them all the love they deserve. These women have inspired me so much, and today’s honoree is BEYOND inspiring. Mashama Bailey may be a New Yorker by birth, but she is a Southern girl at heart. She puts soul into every dish and just wait until you see what recipe of hers I am going to re-create today!
It is a bank holiday Monday here in London, so an end of summer BBQ is in order!!! Hubby won’t eat red meat so I usually make ordinary turkey burgers. But I made some turkey burgers with zucchini in them the last time I was visiting my daughter and family in the USA. They were very good! I don’t remember my daughter’s recipe source, so I had to re-create something on the fly. But they turned out delicious…moist, flavorful and healthy! Continue reading
I just love vegetables! I had to put that out there, and it will make sense in a minute. But what I love most is my weekly homage to the female chefs in the culinary world. Wednesday is more than a hump day to mark the slide towards the weekend. For me it is the focal point of the week. I get so much joy honoring a gorgeous gourmet gal by recreating one of her recipes live on Snapchat (username blissbakery). But today’s episode, number 97 if you are counting, is especially dear to me because of the incredible chef Nyesha Arrington!
WCW oh how I’ve missed you! It is great to be back after a bit of a break, to honor Woman Crush Wednesday recipient #94! Today’s fabulous female chef is the amazing Amanda Cohen of the famous Dirt Candy in New York City. This groundbreaking restaurant has set the bar for innovative and delicious veggie food! With scorching temperatures in London this week, I am looking forward to a quick, healthy recipe that doesn’t require turning on my oven! HELP Amanda!
I’m not sure about you, but we are having lovely warm weather here in London. Which means I am craving some light and healthy salads! And today’s Woman Crush Wednesday honoree chef Lynda Booth is going to save the day. Especially since it is a quick and easy recipe for her Grated Carrot and Beetroot Salad. Because if you’re like me, some weekdays are hectic! With work and errands it leaves little time to get a meal on the table. So paired with a nice piece of fish, I am counting on this salad to be a 100 yard dash dinner winner!
It is May 2nd, which means we are getting closer to the halfway point of 2018. What is even more exciting is that today is Woman Crush Wednesday episode number 92! Inching nearer to 100 each week. It means so much to me that you have all been so supportive of this special day to honor these fabulous female foodies! And today’s WCW chef is Londoner Natasha Corrett Continue reading
