the weekend is ahead of us and since it is super hot these days why not embrace a sweet treat from the hot and humid south of the US – a peach cobbler.
I bought Martha Stewart´s cookbook months ago and love to just look at the different chapters and delicious recipes. My last experiment has been the peach cobbler and it turned out pretty good.
Definitely a tasty treat and different from what I have baked before. The filling is sweet, rich and so fruity in taste but the crust is krispy, inside soft from the juicy peaches and not to sweet at all.
The last time I have made it I added blueberries like the recipe said and it was delicous but as the colors mixed, pretty much everything turned green so the second day of eating it wasn´t as enjoyable as the first day anymore. Next time I am going with plain peaches.
Since we had been so overbooked last weekend I have not made any plans for tomorrow. We will stay at home at maybe go outside a little but that´s it. With all the #socialdistancing and staying at home due to Covid it has somehow become the new normal not planning that much or going anywhere.
As much as I love to cook I also always looking for an easy way to get a delicous meal and to be honest the most verstatile ingredients to have so are noodles. Not only do they taste great with vibrant red hot pasta sauce and parmesan cheese drizzled all over, noodles can also be very yummy when you eat them called in a pasta salad for example.
I have made noodle salad in lots of variations but I never thought of adding cooked chicken to it and let me tell y´all it was deliciuos.
So here are the simple ingredients for a super simple meal that surely doesn´t look like it.
Ingredients for the Chicken Pesto Noodle Salad
– mussel pasta (but you can use any other small pasta)
– chicken breast (you can marinate it with a spice you love but other than that it tastes great in the salad too)
– green basil pesto (I use the green pesto from Barilla as it has the best flavors)
– pine nuts (roasted in the pan)
– feta cheee (crumbled above)
– some parsley for decor
I added the pesto to the fresh and still hot cooked noodles and let it cool. Then I topped it off with the chicken and the rest of the ingredients and voilà. This is super easy and would also work great for a starter if you have guests.
Hopefully you are having a great weekend ahead of you. The weather should be awesome so there are lots of things to do. We are going to have a BBQ with another couple so this is our plan.
I have never been a huge fish fan other than sushi but baked salmon is a treat I love from time to time. Over the years I specialized my recipe to the point I love every single ingredient about it.
So for my salmon I am using a fresh piece of salmon of course and top it of with a piece of feta cheese (melts perfectly but doesn´t run all over the fish filet), some onion rings, drops of olive oil and a mix of spices. It really hasn´t much ingredients but tastes great. Also since the preparation time is not long and it bakes for itself in the oven it would also be an awesome dish for hosting a dinner. I added potatoes to the salmon this time but you can also eat it with couscous or steamed vegetables like broccoli.
Ingredients Oven Baked Salmon
– feta cheese
– olive oil
Wrap in aluminium foil and put into the oven for about 40 minutes at 170° degreees. Enjoy right away afterwards. Tastes so so good. I promise.
I understand if people stay away from preparing fish cause the filets are really pricey and many are afraid to mess up the meal but this one is a real foolproof recipe.
Have a look at my recipe tab here if you are interested in more recipes. I have shoot two new recipes this week so we will be soon back to regular Food Friday posts.
Wishing you guys a nice weekend. See ya on Monday.
Who doesn´t love a quick and easy dinner option that has nothing to do with expensive take-away options? Got your interest already – then read on.
I have been loving quick and easy food options lately cause between feedings and pumping and diaper changes there often isn´t much time left to get creative in the kitchen so I have been collecting quick recipes and tried a bunch of them. Today I am sharing my own modified Club Sandwich recipe with you guys.
The ingredients aren´t too fancy so there is a high chance that you already have everything you need at home. I added sweet potoatoe fries to our plates but it isn´t necessary cause it is filling enough. Just a nice idea for a side dish.
Club Sandwich Ingredients
It is pretty much stack as you like. You can add as much ingredients on your sandwich as you like. I love a fully stacked sandwich and added a lot from everything but that really is a personal matter.
Did you try out new recipes during quarantine time or did you stick to your go-to´s?
