This is an oldie but a goodie...filed away in my “Suz’s Recipes” document that I've been creating for as long as I've been cooking. So old that I can’t even recall where it’s from, so apologies if I’m not giving credit where it’s due! It’s a super basic recipe but really yummy, healthy and soul satisfying!
I was having a strange craving...I had a vague memory of a shrimp newburg dish I made for my parents back when I was in college and that somehow translated into me craving puff pastry and salmon together. Not exactly linear, but I had been thinking about it for a week and could fight the craving no more.
So I went to one of my new favorite website, foodily.com (which stands for Food I Love You, cute huh?) and typed in “Salmon” and “Puff Pastry”...viola! Several recipes instantly appear that have those two items as ingredients. I chose the Giada recipe below simply because I had lots of Basil in the house that I needed to use up and some leftover pine nuts from something and her recipe called for pesto. I also already had everything else in the house which is always a nice bonus.
This is a classic, but always good and nice and easy for a week night. I often add sliced shitake mushrooms and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes as well (but I add red pepper flakes to everything!). A bit of garlic could be nice too.
Since this is a DIY night, no precise recipe, but my approach is below in case your curious:
Oh, I’m down for the count...sick with a cold and not moving from the couch. So, my sweetheart of a husband cooked up one of our favorite soups, a nice Thai twist on Mom’s homemade chicken noodle soup...just what the doctor ordered! The recipe below makes about 4 servings...but we always double it since it’s so yummy. Quick & easy for weeknights too...and only one pot, so quick clean up.
This is another DIY night so feel free to wing it and do whatever you would like with eggs tonight...some of our favorites are below:
This is a yummy vegetarian dish and only takes about 30-35 minutes from start to finish, so great for a week night
Christian’s a good cook, but can get a bit flustered at times so the fact that he told me that this was an easy recipe means it really is easy which makes it perfect for weeknights. And we both think that it turned out a restaurant quality soup...so much so that we had a hard time restraining ourselves and saving enough for our leftovers night!
