gettin’ busy in the kitchen

January 31, 2012

Here are a few recipes I’m hoping to try out this week:

These lentil “meatballs” would be delightful with some wilted kale and tomato sauce, perhaps with a scattering of freshly grated Parmesan. And a poached egg. (I’m currently obsessed with topping everything with poached or fried eggs. I can’t stop myself.)

I have a freezer full of berries from last summer and a desire to eat healthier, and this Strawberry Cucumber smoothie from Joy sounds tempting and fresh. SOLD!

I’m planning on doing a riff on these mini Meyer lemon tarts for my Cooking Club this Saturday. Our theme is “appetizers”, so naturally, I want to do bite-size desserts. I’m thinking maybe some wee brownies, too? With a Mexican hot chocolate twist?

Or I might just find myself also showing up with homemade soft pretzels with a cheddar beer dipping sauce or perhaps some kind of zesty spice topping. Because let’s be honest: eating healthy all the time is overrated. And pretzels are delicious.

What’s showing up in your kitchen this week?

    Gettin’ busy? Ooo la la…. and those meyer lemon tarts sound so amazing I want to rub my face in them. (too much? maybe I have a lemon craving).

    Also, can you teach me to poach an egg? I’ve tried a few times but they have been epic failures.
