Saffron Risotto

This risotto is characterized by the gold hue and flavor from the threads of saffron. Threads of the red spice are beautiful but they are also quite expensive.

Crispy Polenta with Spicy Tomato Sauce, Sautéed Kale & Mushrooms 

This is a heavy rotation in my house because it can easily be assembled from things in the fridge. I actually developed the recipe when I went foraging in my refrigerator for ingredients so that I didn’t have to make a trip to the grocery store.

Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Boats

Squash Blossom & Ricotta Pizza

Squash Blossom & Ricotta Pizza

One of my favorite recent discoveries is squash blossoms. They are in season in summer and are often found at local farmers markets, since they are often too delicate and go bad too quickly for most grocery stores to keep them in stock. Whenever I see them hit the stalls in summer I have to grab some – they are just too pretty to pass up.

Saag Paneer Naan Pizza

Saag, a classic Indian spinach dish, doesn’t exactly look pretty (it looks like a pile of green mush – not going to sugar coat it), but it’s flavorful and delicious, not to mention all that spinach is good for you!
