This dish is made in one pan, from searing the duck breasts to then cooking the sauce using the fat from the duck. Man who waits for roast duck to fly into mouth must wait very, very long time. -Jules Renard If you are wanting to make your own gnocchi, check out the Perfect Gnocchi recipe!

There is nothing quite like having fresh pesto. The pungent freshness of the basil, the richness of the cheese, the crunch of the nuts.... Pesto is a great sauce not only on pasta and gnocchi, but is absolutely delightful as a spread on sandwiches and on a grilled cheese, shakes up a Caprese appetizer, used on pizzas as a sauce or topping, in lasagnas, cold salads or even just tossed with cooked vegetables. Some say that pesto is best made by hand, not with a processor. If yo
Moist, seasoned chicken topped with a creamy, rich and slightly sweet morel sauce. Whether served over rice, pasta or vegetables, this dish was amazing to make and even more so to eat. This recipe does not have to be saved for the limited morel mushroom season each year- swap out the morels for your favorite mushroom to make this sauce whenever your heart desires. I like wild mushrooms best, but play around!

When going out to eat, lox is making an appearance far more often on menus; from weekend brunch menus to sandwiches and breakfast spreads. But what is lox, really? Today, lox is often presented as salmon that has been lightly salted before being cold smoked. Modern smoked salmon is not a true lox, but more so a common modern variation. It is easier to make and takes less time than the traditional preparation that takes multiple days of curing the salmon before it is ready to
Whether you are wanting salmon cakes as a light meal, as an appetizer or an accompaniment to brunch, this is where you want to be. These salmon cakes are full of flavor while letting the salmon shine. I use fresh salmon, but if you want to purchase frozen, just make sure to thaw the fish and pat it dry before baking it off. The better quality of salmon you purchase will affect the flavor of the patties. I always advocate for sustainable sourcing of your seafood. Choose seafoo
This combination is one of my favorites. Sweet and savory, herbaceous and fresh with a layer of healthy oil tying it all together. This is a deliciously simple meal. Easy to make, fast to prepare & easy to eat. Definitely easy to eat.

Ravioli, tortellini, fettuccini, spaghetti, gluten-free pastas or even rice! Heck,
Everyone loves a good pesto! The pesto we know and love was created in Genoa, Italy, but dates back to similar uses in the Roman era. Consisting of fresh nuts, herbs, healthy oils and amazing flavor, no wonder it has been used by humans throughout the years! Nothing beats cutting fresh herbs to add into a good meal. Basil is one plant that looks beautiful, smells amazing and adds to so many recipes that I could not imagine living without it. Fresh herbs really belong anywher
