Once in a while, I make something simple to serve with drinks, like figs wrapped in prosciutto, but mostly, I like to find delicious little appetizers that need no cooking at all.
I love granola bars but these days, most commercial bars are more like cookies – with chocolate chips, dipped in chocolate and caramel. Too sweet for me! I prefer the old-fashioned kind with real oats, almonds, and dried fruit. These Homemade Granola Bars are great for breakfast on the run or an after-school treat when the kids come home. I could go for one right now!
Leftover bread in the freezer? Half an uneaten baguette from dinner? Why not turn it into homemade croutons! They’re great on soups, in salads (like my favorite, Panzanella!) and oh, yes, they’re also good to eat hot right out of the pan! Here are my tips on how you can make croutons like a pro.
I’m so excited to share one of my favorite recipes from my new book, Cook Like a Pro! This one-dish dinner has everything I want – tender mustard chicken with a crunchy panko crust, roasted fingerling potatoes, and a crisp, cold frisée salad with plenty of mustardy vinaigrette. I could eat this for dinner every night! Hope you love it too! Click here for my Crispy Mustard Chicken & Frisée recipe.
