Roasted Asparagus with Dijon-Lemon Sauce

Roasted Asparagus with Dijon-Lemon Sauce

by Pam on June 25, 2013

I wanted a simple side dish to pair with the Chicken Cutlets with Tarragon-Mushroom Sauce[1] and the Garlicky Quinoa with Toasted Pine Nuts, Chives, and Parsley[2] that I was making for dinner. I found this recipe on Cooking Light[3] and it looked simple and delicious. It took only minutes to make and we all enjoyed it. My kids aren’t huge fans of asparagus but they thought the sauce was tasty and gobbled it all up. I love that!!!

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tin foil. Coat with cooking spray.

Combine the asparagus, 2 teaspoons of olive oil, minced garlic, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, together in a large bowl, tossing well to coat evenly. Arrange asparagus mixture in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until crisp-tender.

Whisk together the remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil, lemon zest and juice, Dijon mustard, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, in a small bowl.

Arrange asparagus on a platter; drizzle juice mixture over asparagus. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

Mexican Chopped Salad with a Citrus Vinaigrette

Mexican Chopped Salad with a Citrus Vinaigrette

by Pam on November 14, 2013

I saw this recipe on Better Recipes[1] and couldn’t wait to make it. I loved the flavor of the vinaigrette and the crunch of all the veggies in the salad. It was refreshing, healthy, and super delicious. We all enjoyed it and gobbled it right up. I had the leftovers the following day, and aside from the soggy lettuce, it was still crunchy, flavorful, and delicious. This is a terrific salad that would pair nicely with most Mexican main dishes.

Combine the cumin, coriander, cayenne, orange juice, orange zest, lime juice, lime zest, olive oil, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste together in a bowl. Whisk until well combined. Set aside.

Chop the tomatoes, green onions, avocado, bell pepper, and romaine lettuce. Drain and rinse the black beans and thaw the frozen corn and edamame. Place the chopped romaine lettuce in the bottom of a dish. Arrange the remaining salad ingredients on top of the lettuce in rows. Toss with vinaigrette, to taste, when ready to serve. Sprinkle the top with cheese and cilantro. Serve and enjoy.

Skinny Baked Brie Phyllo Cups with Craisins and Walnuts

Baked brie in mini phyllo cups topped with craisins, walnuts and honey. Delicious bite-sized appetizers, perfect for the Holidays!

Someone gave me this idea last week after posting my mini pecan pies and I just loved it! You see I’m a huge fan of baked brie, so naturally creating baked brie a bit lighter with better portion control sounded very appealing to me.

Trader Joe’s sells a light Brie which is what I used here, Presidente also carries one. For the topping, I thought using dried cranberries would be pretty for this time of year and I used honey as my glue to keep everything in place. And the taste? Just as good as the real thing, just be sure you don’t eat the whole tray!

A wedge of brie would be enough to make two batches, so if you are serving a crowd, you can easily double this recipe.
