Mexican Chorizo with Sweet Potatoes

This spicy homemade Mexican ground pork sausage is perfectly balanced by roasted sweet potatoes. We prepared this recipe for a Sunday night dinner with friends, and paired it with a lovely light Citrus Avocado Salad. The original recipe is from Enrique Olvera’s Tu Casa Mi Casa: Mexican Recipes for the […]

 

Citrus Avocado Salad

This fresh, light salad includes a simple balsamic vinaigrette, naval orange slices, and ripe avocado. It couldn’t be easier to whip together! We recently enjoyed with spicy Mexican Chorizo and Sweet Potatoes.  

 

Vanilla Avocado Pudding

We were stoked to receive 15 Bacon avocados in our farm basket last week. Bacon avocados are lighter in color and flavor than Hass avocados, and they have a higher water content. We like them for sweet recipes as they have less of a traditional “avocado” flavor but the same […]

 

One-Pan Sausages, Apples, and Carrots

We’ve made a variation of this One-Pan Sausages, Apples, and Carrots recipe before; it’s so simply and tasty, it’s made it onto our regular meal plan rotation. We simply swap out the type of sausage; this time we also replaced the onion with roasted carrots. We’re always on the lookout […]

 

Chicken Tinga

Our eight-year-old loved this chicken stew from Tu Casa Mi Casa with chipotle, green onions, and fresh plum tomatoes so much, he had three helpings! We served this for dinner with Slow Braised Collard Greens, and paired leftovers with sliced fresh avocado for lunch the next day.  

 

Mussels in Escabeche

Our entire family loves Mexican food. I’m not sure if the cause is our proximity to the Mission District in San Francisco, but the effect is that we include tacos in our meal plan nearly every week; we frequently cook up a batch of frijoles borrachos (“drunken beans”) to make […]

 

Baked Fish with Greens

The original recipe from Chef Enrique Olvera in Tu Casa Mi Casa included a few greens we couldn’t find at our local grocer or specialty Mexican market. So we improvised, and enjoyed the results of our creativity. We served this with a trio of roasted vegetables – golden beets, Brussels […]

 

Paleo Banana Bread

With only 8 ingredients, this recipe delivers a naturally sweetened bread without grains, dairy, or sugar. Mix up the batter in less than 5 minutes, then sit back and wait for about an hour while it bakes in the oven (and fills your kitchen with the amazing aroma of cinnamon […]

 

Oyakodon (Japanese Rice Bowl)

Oyakodon is one of our favorite family meals; our sons argue over who can take leftovers to school for lunch the next day. It literally means “parent-child rice bowl”. In this donburi (Japanese rice bowl dish), chicken thighs are cooked in a ginger-soy sauce and a fried egg sits atop […]
