Baked Branzini

I feel very fortunate to have easy access to affordable, fresh fish. I know in the US, it can get pretty expensive, but treat yourself if you can! Branzino is not native to the US areas. Choose a fish that is! Always as what came in fresh that day. It’s restaurant-worthy flavor right in your home.

Tagine

I think what draws me to tagine so much and so often is their versatility. Of course there is a very traditional way to make them, but I noticed throughout my travels in Morocco that they are always made with whatever is available, which a few key ingredients that are usually consistent. For example, if you’re making meat in the tagine, there’s almost always preserved lemon.

Homemade Minestrone Soup (Lulu Style)

There’s only a few soups I don’t dip some stale bread into. Am I alone on this?! I love when yesterday’s bread gets soft from soaking up the delicious juices from the fresh, hot veggies! I can’t get enough. We don’t want to let anything go to waste, but it’s also DELICIOUS! (Serves 4)

Lulu's French Onion Soup

This was my first attempt at making French onion soup. I didn’t research any recipe, I just used my instincts so I’m sorry in advanced if it’s incorrect and offends, but it was DAMN DELICIOUS and didn’t give me any endo pains. So I call that a win.

Farro Escarole Soup

My mom used to always make “Garbage Soup” growing up. It was a soup of, basically, whatever we had left in the fridge that we needed to eat before it went bad. As you all may know, I used to be the pickiest eater. But this soup was always my favorite. Of course I would never admit to my mom at the time that I actually loved it…so mom, this one’s for you.

10 Minute Curried Lentils

I love the idea of meal prep, but I don’t always love the way a lot of us go about it. It’s not good for your digestion to eat the same things every day!! When you’re meal prepping, prep ingredients that you can make various things with, not things like 5 pieces of grilled chicken. For example, pre-cut your fresh veggies, make a batch of tomato sauce, make some broth, roast some veggies. These are all things you can easily and quickly throw into a salad or dry ingredients like lentils to make EACH meal superb, and balanced!

Butternut Squash 'Pizza'

If you notice, half of this ‘pizza’ is loadddeddd up with fresh mozzarella & salame picante, while the other half is piled high with greens. This is the most perfect example of how everything I cook accommodates the way Davide likes to eat, AND how I need to eat (because trust me…I would loooove some more cheese & spicy meats, but my endo disagrees!). I love experimenting with food, and he loves eating…so it makes me happy that we can find a balance :)
