Vegetarian Korean Rice Bowl

By Friday, I often find my pantry and refrigerator down to some greens, rice, and eggs. I remembered reading an article on Korean barbeque and specifically the dish, Bibimbap. One of the most iconic dishes of Korea, bibimbap, is a bowl of sticky rice topped with vegetables, meat or seafood and a fried egg. Here I have reserved the marinade usually used for grilling the meat or seafood for seasonal greens, added in some fresh raw vegetables, and topped it all with a fried egg. My kids had fun stirring the egg into the greens and rice, and eating with chopsticks!

Bacon and Cheddar Cheese Quiche

Serve with chopped walnut, pear and arugula salad with honey white balsamic vinaigrette-

This was a surprise hit as egg pies or quiches do not necessarily elicit much excitement unless you are in your local coffee shop looking for something healthier than scones to go with your just-perked java.
My youngest loved it so much she asked if she could have it for breakfast the next day. Because this is such an easy recipe to make with most of the time invested in waiting for it to bake, we whipped up another quiche, baked it, and cooled it all before her bedtime. My oldest daughter, who typically does not care for eggs, loved it, but was especially keen on the chopped walnut, pear and arugula salad, going back for seconds. The whole meal is a keeper!

Nutella Banana Bread Muffins

A bunch of really ripe bananas led me to create this easy muffin recipe that tastes just like banana bread with a creamy chocolate surprise in the center. A favorite breakfast, after school snack or pre-work out , these moist, healthy muffins will have you leaving bananas laying around to ripen extra long on a regular basis.

Baked Eggs with Herbs

Serve with mixed greens, Asiago and strawberry salad with raspberry balsamic vinaigrette, toasted French bread-

My teen and I like to occasionally take in The Barefoot Contessa, as Ina Garten inspires us to be joyful cooks. This simple French egg dish modified from one of her TV episodes was prepared by my daughter one rainy spring evening. This outstanding, yet simple, meal inspired us to elevate a weekday meal by adding some ambient music, tapered candles, and a beautiful table setting. J’oie la Vie!

Finger Lickin’ Fried Chicken

Serve with sliced tomatoes and potato salad-

This is gluten- and guilt-free comfort food eating at its best served any time of year, but I find myself craving and making this healthy version of fried chicken in the summer. Hot out of the oven or served cold picnic style, this classic taste of Americana will sure to satisfy.
