What’s Worth Cooking this Week – July 11, 2016

Some simple recipes where very little effort turns into big flavor payoff, definitely worth cooking. 

July 12, 2016

Meal-planning ruts happen to the most keen of cooks. Don’t get frustrated. Below are a few recipes from around the web to get you back on track. All simple to prepare and very satisfying, I think you’ll find them worth cooking.


First, my own “no recipe” toast creation to vary my normal fruit and muesli breakfast routine. Heat a spoonful of unrefined coconut oil in a pan and cook 1 small sliced apple with 1 chopped Medjool date and a pinch of sea salt until softened. Toast a slice of wholegrain bread and spread with tahini then a fresh sheep’s or goat’s milk cheese. Drizzle with raw honey, top with the cooked apple and date, then sprinkle with sesame seeds.


An easy, quick and portable lunch: Food52’s Pad Thai Redux


A hearty yet summery stew: Jamie Oliver’s Potatoes Yiachni. Go ahead and add the green beans that he suggests in the intro.


Sweet, salty, crunchy perfection. Seriously, perfection: Bon Appetit’s Coconut Kettle Corn

Weekend Breakfast

But would fit right in at dinner, too: Food52’s Avocado-Stuffed French Toast
