One of my most favorite treats whenever I travel to a big city, is warm, honey roasted peanuts. I am so happy that I can now make these myself. It's a great low sugar, high protein snack.

This is one of my favorite all time recipes. Early on, it even got my son to eat vegetables. You can keep it vegan and add tofu or it also works well with chicken. It's a great basic sauce and an easy way to get your kids to eat more protein.

Roasting vegetables brings out such rich flavors that kids can love! If you don't have an open fire for the job, an oven will do nicely.

Sometimes we pretend we know about other cultures when we make a meal. Did you know that the origins of the word picnic are French? My apologies to all French people, I still have a lot to learn! But I do know that dessert is important, so I had to sneak in a few cookies :)

Omega 3 is one of the most powerful nutrients for the brain. This is a family recipe. It made me feel a little smarter whenever my mom made it for dinner.

Here's what happens to a Vegan Marinara sauce recipe if you make up stories with your almost six-year old son while cooking dinner. We are currently obsessed with volcanos, space and robots.

Green Chili Stew by Mitzie Testani

Syracuse, NY, US

Read More...

Every September where I'm from (Denver, CO) we would find one of the chili vendors on a street corner and order a bushel of #fire #roasted #green #chilis I'm not sure, but I think they were #poblanos we would take our haul in a garbage bag. After they cooled, we would peel off the blackened skins and divide them up in plastic bags for the freezer so we could make #greenchilistew all winter. To this day, I miss this annual tradition. You can use canned Hatch green chili in place of fresh Poblanos, but fire-roasted peppers are the best!

Some day, I would love to have a garden so I could grow fresh herbs for cooking. In the meantime, I am drawing them (and buying them).

Feast of the Fishes by Mitzie Testani

Syracuse, NY, US

Read More...

Feast of the fishes is a tradition that I first tried when visiting my husband's Italian-American Aunt on Christmas Eve. It wasn't the fancy seven fish kind, but the hugely warm and comforting calamari in red sauce kind, a fish I had never even tried until I met my husband. Sometimes there would be other kinds of fish, but mostly there was lots and lots of homemade pasta.
