03.17.14 by Jackie

The one hour season finale of How I Met Your Mother is slated to air on CBS in less than 2 weeks. Have you watched the TV show? Have you followed the one where Barney Stinson wears a green suit on St. Patrick's Day? Today is officially the day we celebrate Ireland's patron Saint and if you don't wear a specific color you get pinched.

Put on your green clothes (to avoid unnecessary pinches) and celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Here are a few examples of green food. Enjoy!

Green Shortcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

It's Saint Patrick's day next week, so I thought I would feature our family's favorite snacks: sweets, of course! 

I prepared strawberry-flavored shortcake batter as the base of the dessert. To ensure a moist texture, I also added crème fraîche. For the green decorations, I used cream cheese frosting colored with pandan paste and light green sprinkles. My little one adored them and I enjoyed watching her eat them just as much. Give this recipe a try next Monday; these mini sweets would make a leprechaun "green" with envy.

Kale Salad with Pomegranate Dressing Recipe

Here’s another Meatless Monday recipe for the beginning of the week. I wanted to feature a flavorful yet healthy one, so I prepared a baby kale salad with pomegranate dressing. I also added shredded carrots and spiced pecans for extra crunch and nutrition. And to reinforce the tart and sour taste of this salad, I also added dried cranberries. 

I think you've probably noticed my recent love for all things pomegranate. I prepared the dressing with freshly squeezed pomegranate juice, a little mustard, agave nectar and flax seed oil to complete the delicious vinaigrette. Et voilà!

Kale Thanksgiving Bread Stuffing Recipe Recipe

Our Thanksgiving table would be incomplete without vegetarian bread stuffing / dressing. I usually serve it as a side dish so it's a great accompaniment to meat and a main course for the vegetarians in my home. 

For this version, I was inspired by green ingredients such as asparagus, zucchini, celery, artichoke, kale, Castelvetrano green olives and Havarti cheese with dill. I used olive bread, a small white onion and homemade vegetable broth I prepared in advance and stored in the freezer for the upcoming holiday. Give this "green" and healthy recipe a try; it might bring a new kick to your Thanksgiving menu.

Asparagus and Pea Appetizers Recipe

Asparagus and Pea Appetizers

10.17.13 by Jackie

We're having a large dinner party this Saturday, so I tested a new appetizer recipe today. I prepared the filling for the appetizers with green peas and asparagus. To ensure that the filling would spread easily, I also added eggplant pulp and a bit of Pecorino cheese. 

To save time, instead of placing puff pastry dough into molds and following the curve of the molds, I cut pastry rounds. Once baked and flaky, I divided them in half crosswise, then filled them with the green mixture. They resembled savory pâte à choux buns, minus all the labor normally required.
