I adore winter produce. And I especially love winter citrus. I know that spring and summer usually get all the glory but nothing makes me happier than seeing bright and beautiful winter produce at the market. They’re so resilient and strong in flavor and in texture.

Make-Ahead Chicken Meatballs

To say that these are my favorite meatballs of all-time is a grave understatement. I make this meal at least once a week and have been for a few years now. I like these chicken meatballs because they’re on the healthier side (I don’t use the classic milk and breadcrumb combo). I make these on nights when I’m tired of cooking but want something warm and comforting and on the lighter side. Typically I’ll use ground dark meat chicken because it has wonderful flavor which I actually prefer to ground turkey.

Healthy Bok Choy Mushroom Stir Fry

Did you ever have someone ruin vegetables for you? During my childhood there were some really bad experiences of over-sautéed batches of bok choy. They were so overcooked, that I went around for years declaring that I, “didn’t like bok choy,” and saying things like, “it’s gross!” But I couldn’t have been more wrong. I realized a few years ago that it’s actually so delicious and crisp, when made correctly.

Have Roasted Cauliflower with Yogurt as a Side Dish

I will eat an entire bowl of this for dinner. Period. I need nothing else to make me happy. Though, if there is a side of rice I won’t be upset! This cauliflower is so delicious and easy to make. It requires some warm, earthy spices and a good amount of olive oil. I like to serve it on a bed of tart cool yogurt and love to garnish it with lots of sliced almonds, some sweet golden raisins and a nice sprinkling of fresh Italian parsley.

I eat salads year around but January is always the month where I struggle a bit with what will go in my salads. Summer is easy-breezy, but January is tough. There aren’t that many fruits and veggies that excite me that are also in season. We’ve been making an iteration of this salad the past couple of weeks and it’s the perfect side when we roast a chicken or eat some fish.

Couscous brings me so much happiness. This is maybe one of my favorite things to make and eat over a few days. I love making a big batch of this and then warming it up whenever I need a bit of something warm but still light tasting. The couscous do that for you! Promise!

Make French Onion and Mushroom Pasta Bake

Is there anything more cozy and delicious than pasta bakes? They’re maybe my favorite category of winter food. They’re definitely for this time of year when it’s ok to eat all the indulgent foods. This pasta bake is inspired by French onion soup. It begins with caramelizing yellow onions and then cooking some delicious mushrooms. The white sauce  has delicious Gruyere cheese and melty mozzarella. The Dijon mustard adds a nice bite to an otherwise super rich sauce.

Give Rocky Road as a Gift

My friend Billy told me about rocky road. Of course I know good and well about the ice cream. It’s one of my favorite flavors. It was my absolute go-to when I was a little kid. But this is different. It’s more of a confection, I’d say. It’s a good gift-able type of dessert that you could easily place in little bags and give them to all your favorite people.
