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!
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!
I don’t know about you, but I have noticed the days are getting shorter. It hit me this morning as I was out the door before 5:45 am to catch the train to work. It was much darker. However, it turned out to be another warm and sunny day here in London. And even though I was cooking away in a kitchen all day, I couldn’t wait to get home to my own kitchen. Why? Hello!! It is Wednesday and you know it’s my favorite day of the week! I get to shower another fabulous female foodie with LOVE and get to try one of her recipes! My 96th Woman Crush Wednesday is the awesome Anita Lo! Continue reading
Welcome back to episode 95 of this very special day in the week. Woman Crush Wednesday is dear to me as you know. I feel blessed to dedicate this day to a deserving gorgeous gourmet gal! Love, inspiration and a fabulous recipe, just a few things to be excited about. Especially when today’s honoree is the incredible Carla Hall! A chef after my own heart, as she too thinks the secret ingredient in every dish is LOVE! Continue reading
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!
