December Random Bites


If you follow me on instagram then you know I harvested watermelon radishes this month in pots in my garden.
I will store them all thru the winter in my crisper drawer :)

They are beautiful and spicy, and I am always looking for recipes in which to use them in.


If you can find them (good luck).....this is a simple holiday appetizer that everyone will love.

I buy a container of smoked white fish (ACME fish sells a yummy one, or any Jewish deli....).
Stuff endive spears with some of the spread (smoked trout spread works here too), and place a watermelon radish slice in each spear with a sprig of dill from my garden.


Pretty in pink.
Watch them disappear.


Good Idea:

You will most likely have leftover roasted vegetables after the holidays.


Here I tossed my roasted brussels, squash and apples w/ candied walnuts with cooked quinoa and pomegranate seeds for a delicious lunch the next day.


I made this easy and delicious roasted cauliflower pasta with peas and tomatoes for dinner.......


Just roast some cauliflower w/ grape tomatoes on a baking sheet with olive oil and kosher salt, about 25 minutes at 375F.

Toss w/ crispy pancetta, frozen peas and a splash of balsamic vinegar with 1/4 cup of reserved pasta water.
Sprinkle w/ parmesan cheese and an easy pasta primavera is born.


Here's an idea for the most delicious omelet, I am addicted.


Saute half a sliced apple with a few shredded Brussels sprouts in butter.

Whisk 2 eggs and pour them over the sauteed apple and sprouts in the pan.
Season with salt & pepper and shredded cheddar cheese.

Fold over as you would an omelet.
So yummy.


And on a totally random bite......I'm not cooking tonight, today is my 51st birthday (had to get that in), I can't believe I am that old!
My friend Sally is cooking dinner for me tonight, as she always does, tablescape and all!


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all my wonderful readers & friends.

See you after the holidays!
