I woke up this morning thinking I needed to roast some lamb and whip up some couscous. I decided to sauté some eggplant and made a dried cranberry and balsamic “chutney” to go with it. I think it works.

Prosciutto wrapped Orange Roughy with lentils. Have to thank @jamieoliver for this one. I substituted Orange Roughy for his Cod and Prosciutto for his Pancetta and added spinach to my lentils (as I always do). Kids lapped it up!

My kids love making the packaged stuff with the Keurig. 🙄 I prefer to make my ramen from scratch. 🍜

Just dropping toppings all over my chili in no order whatsoever. #SuperBowl

My idea was to make a blood orange pizza for dessert. Brown sugar and butter. All caramelized. My kids vetoed my idea. I’ll reign with this idea yet.

I’ve been freezing ALL day, and feeling less than on top of my mom/marketer game, and when I got home from work tonight I had zero desire to cook for my kids. So, they got Italian meatloaf sammiches for dinner. No one complained. 🙏🏼

Gluten schmuten. I can’t give you up. I’m going to destroy you because I’ve barely eaten today. 🍝

Carolyn's Cucina (@carolynscucina)

I’ve been eliminating gluten, because I feel so much better when I don’t consume it. Although I slipped tonight and had a burger on a brioche roll. 🙄 Back to clean eating, tomorrow. We’re all allowed cheat days right? 🤨

Oh hey! I’ve been up since 3:43am, so a one pot “wonder” was all I was up for. You got your chicken thighs, garlic, onions, shrooms, rosemary and potatoes. That’s all I can write tonite.

Woke up at 2:30am with a migraine. It finally has subsided, and I’m celebrating by making chicken soup. 🍲

New kick. Only eating salads. 🥗 My next kick will be the all croissant diet. 🥐 I’m an all or nothing kinda gal. 👌🏼

Looooooong days call for practically one pot dinners. Can I go to sleep now?

Carolyn's Cucina (@carolynscucina)

Some mornings call for a hearty hash. Stay warm, friends!

I’m eating my homemade Spumoni cause it’s 21° out. Logical.

I’ve never been a big fan of New Year’s Eve and I like to quietly accept it by staying in and reflecting on the past year. It’s a quiet, contemplative time for me. Cooking, reading and centering myself is how I choose to “celebrate”. Today I embarked on Hoppin’ John. A Southern tradition and one I’ve never prepared. To 2018....

Merry Christmas. From my kitchen to yours. 🎄
