Pinterest Review: Sweet Potato Biscuits

Pinterest Review: Sweet Potato Biscuits

You may remember that I shared a recipe for Gnocchi and Sweet Potato Soup last week. Well, I still had one lonely sweet potato sitting around the house from that recipe. I had been trying to figure out what to do with just one when the craving for biscuits hit me. I immediately turned to Pinterest and found a great looking recipe from Can’t Stay Out of the Kitchen for sweet potato biscuits. I was really Continue Reading →

Indian Spiced Quinoa Salad

Indian Spiced Quinoa Salad

I love playing around with flavors in the kitchen when I’m in the mood for something new and different. Recently, I was inspired to make a quinoa salad crossed with a yogurt-based Indian side dish called raita. I really like how it turned out. This Indian spiced quinoa salad is a really filling meal and a great accompaniment to spicy food. Its also pretty straight-forward to make. This recipe has a really mild flavor because Continue Reading →

Pinterest Review: Smoked Salmon and Spinach Tarts

Pinterest Review: Smoked Salmon and Spinach Tarts

Smoked salmon and spinach are both considered super foods by many health experts. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you’ll know that I love smoked salmon and have written several previous posts about it. The other night, we had some smoked salmon in the fridge and I was looking for a new but quick and easy way to cook it. That’s when I came across this recipe from Delicious Magazine for Continue Reading →

Pinterest Review: Grilled Curry Carrots

Pinterest Review Grilled Curry Carrots

I know this is another grilling recipe right on the heels of my Pinterest Review of Grilled Herb Mustard Chicken, but we really are trying to get the most out of the last days of grilling season. The weather here has been really kind of yucky lately with lots of rain and clouds, but sometimes it just seems better at the end of the day if we grill something for dinner. So, I was searching Continue Reading →

Pinterest Review: Grilled Cauliflower Steaks

Pinterest Review Grilled Cauliflower Steaks

The weather is starting to cool off a bit here in Geneva, so my husband and I are trying to enjoy the last days of summer and warm weather by grilling as much as possible. It was looking for new grilling recipes that I found this pin for grilled cauliflower steaks from Girl Cooks Food. It just so happened that we had picked up a cauliflower at the grocery store that week, but weren’t sure Continue Reading →

Grilled Camembert

Grilled Camembert Cheese

I really love cheese and I eat pretty much every type of cheese there is. This was just one of the many reasons I love living in Switzerland; we have so many more cheeses to choose from, even in just a regular grocery store never mind a fancy cheese store. Lately, I’ve been seeing so many delicious recipes for grilled brie that I got a craving for it. Unfortunately, we didn’t find any brie in Continue Reading →

Herb Risotto

Herb Risotto

I really love risotto, but I had heard it was really difficult to cook and so I put off giving it a try for quite a while. It’s really not that difficult, but it does need constant attention. The first couple times I made it, dinner took twice as long to prepare because I spent my time minding the risotto separately from cooking everything else. After cooking it 2 or 3 times, however, I felt Continue Reading →

Pinterest Review: Marinated Mozzarella with Tomatoes

Pinterest Review: Marinated Mozzarella with Tomatoes

I really like the combination of fresh mozzarella with tomatoes and every time I see the combination on a restaurant menu, I’m hard pressed to order something else. So when I saw this pin on Pinterest for marinated mozzarella with tomatoes, I just had to try it. I often combine all the ingredients in the recipe at home, but I’ve never allowed them to marinate before. I followed the pin over to the original blog Continue Reading →

Cucumber Yogurt Bruschetta

Cucumber Yogurt Bruschetta

I recently went out to lunch with a friend to a new Lebanese restaurant in Geneva. We had both heard really good things and were looking forward to trying the food. We ended up splitting a Cucumber, Yogurt, and Tomato pizza and it was completely amazing! It was probably one of the best pizzas I have ever had. I liked the pizza so much that I decided I had to try to replicated it and Continue Reading →
