Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup


It's the time of year where the weather is cold and all I want to do some days is curl up with a good book and a bowl of soup. My mom first made this recipe and we have loved it ever since. The soup is a classic comfort food, but definitely a bit time consuming. This is best to make on a day or evening when you are at home anyway since it has long simmer times. The egg noodles make a big difference here, so try finding them for this recipe. They have a slightly different flavor than traditional pastas.

Simple Spaghetti Squash with Parmesan


I know spaghetti squash has been around for a while, but it was only recently that I started experimenting with it. Spaghetti squash is very easy to make, and you can top it with anything you'd enjoy on a pasta. One of my favorite ways to enjoy spaghetti squash is very simple: roasting it and sprinkling it with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. When I am home by myself, this make a great, simple dinner. It would also be a wonderful side dish. What I love about spaghetti squash is that you can use the outer peel of the squash as your serving dish.

Arugula Pesto


I got a little excited last weekend at the farmer's market and bought way too much produce. Half way through the week I realized there was no way I'd be able to finish up all the arugula I bought before it wilted. I thought about making an arugula pesto and came across this recipe. It had a few more steps to it than many other, where the arugula is not blanched. However, i liked the idea of taking some of the kick out of the arugula. This pesto goes great on pasta, spaghetti squash or as a pizza sauce.

Salmon Souvlaki Bowls


I made this recipe one night when I wanted to attempt a healthier dinner after a few days of eating terribly. I found this recipe and thought the idea of a "bowl" for dinner sounded great. Though couscous is not exactly the healthiest thing, it's still better than lots of other options- and this was delicious. I set up a build-it-yourself style dinner with all the bowl condiments in a line and everyone built their bowls how they preferred them. Personally I love tzatziki and would use more than most people, so I made more than the recipe asks for. You can't ruin this recipe and feel free to adjust based on your preferences. The fish turns out very flavorsome and your can grill it to your preferred level of doneness (I like mine still slightly rare on the inside).

Frozémonade


I've been wanting to make frozémonade all summer. For some reason or another, it never worked out, until now. We happened to ave all of the ingredients at home and decided it was time to try the ultimate hipster/bougie summer drink. This beverage is not very strong, so it actually makes a great addition to any brunch, BBQ, etc... The simple syrup is very easy to make, so don't be intimidated by that. Serve frozémonade immediately for the best slushy factor, but feel free to prep the simply syrup and juiced lemons ahead of time.
