Greek Chicken

Since Easter hams aren’t a thing in Switzerland, although ham itself seems to be everything…and I’ve never cooked lamb, the more traditional Easter brunch choice, I elected a fresh, terrace-friendly option- Greek Chicken based on a What’s Gaby Cooking recipe, though not the same. First, let’s have a look at a fresh little apero hour…

Ramping Up to Spring

What’s in a ramp….? Answer: no one knows! So, when I saw what I thought was a ramp in my local market, I was all about it. So much so, I bought ramp pasta, ramp pesto, and fresh ramps. I was here to embrace a country who really commits to seasonality. You can imagine my…

Swedish Meatballs

My stomach is growling writing this and I have been eating Swedish meatballs for four or five days now and I still want them…which is good news since there are still SO MANY in my refrigerator. I’ve had them with pasta, potatoes, stirfry, a salad, cold, hot… For a solo Valentine’s Day, I decided to…

Quiche Lorraine

Can we just agree to call this Quiche Lauren if it comes from my kitchen? Thought so, thank you. In the (never ending) recent lock down of Switzerland, I have made myself a calendar of classic recipes to try that I’ve not previously- and walks to take in new places – not difficult in a…

Rosemary Garlicky One-Pan Chicken

After reading through quite a few roasted chicken recipes, nothing seemed quite right. I wasn’t trying to roast a whole chicken and while I love lemon, I just wasn’t in the mood for a lemony, winey chicken. At a recent dinner I attended, someone ever so simply roasted chicken legs and served it ever so…

New Year’s Cabbage Pancakes

Need an extra dose of luck for new year’s? I think we all do/did this year. Last year I did not eat the “lucky” pork and cabbage, so this year, I was NOT chancing it. (Why is this kind of gross combo lucky again)? These pancakes are at least so fun that you’ll forget they’re…

Spinach Ricotta Brunch Bake

Family Christmas typically comes with a plate of infamous egg casserole, some love it, others, not so much. This year, our lean squad was traumatized by an abundance of croutons thanks to some belated Thanksgiving stuffing and decided to forgo the bread laden egg casserole. So, we tried a new, but still not-so-light breakfast bake…

Gaby’s Green Rice

While I’ve never met a carb that I didn’t like, green rice was a new experiment for me. Not a beans and rice kinda girl, green rice seemed like a logical alternative. Plus, it was green so basically a vegetable. This green rice goddess of What’s Gaby Cooking was originally part of a larger bowl…

Rick Andrew Martinez Double Pork Carnitas

Need a totally fail-proof make ahead main to feed a crowd? Rick Andrew Martinez delivers yet another perfect recipe, this time instead of Brown Butter Toffee Cookies, it’s double pork carnitas. That man is so creative. He ruled my taco buffet this weekend and I can confirm that these are tasty both hot and cold….

Ina’s Salmon with Melting Tomatoes

Funny how stressful quarantines are better suited for wine and popcorn rather than the latest gourmet Mediterranean meal. Tonight would be different- tonight the Chrissy Teigan style of cooking salmon takes a Mediterranean vacation (that I could really, REALLY do with) with Ina Garten and this lovely recipe. The whole bit cooks for 11 minutes…

The Fluffiest of Omelettes

Need something to impress your luvah (orrrrrrr just yourself) and have nothing in the fridge? Thought so. I imagine that’s why Gaby whipped up this insanely gorgeous, impressive, and oddly simple recipe just for the occasion of Sunday morning luvah-land. Gaby’s Omelette Edit 3 large eggs, separated 1 T. parmesan Salt & pepper 1 T….
