Blueberry Banana Walnut Bread via

Blueberry Banana Walnut Bread. Wild blueberries, mashed bananas and chopped walnuts folded into a slightly sweet batter and baked to a golden perfection. We love banana bread and blueberry muffins in our house. You too? Recently Lucca has been on a blueberry muffin craze – requesting them at his every opportunity, pretty much everyday. He tends to do that with certain “treat” foods … blueberry muffins, bacon, cookies, chips, etc … certain foods that we don’t have often and he tries for the first time and loves. While we were in the Florida Keys with my parents at the beginning of February, Lucca and Adrian woke up every day before the sun and hopped in the golf cart to go watch the sunrise, drink coffee (well, Adrian did that :)) and share a blueberry muffin [Read More]

Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Warm Blue Cheese and Bacon via

Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Warm Blue Cheese and Bacon. Brussels sprouts roasted until crispy then topped with blue cheese and crispy bacon. A hearty and comforting winter side dish. We’re back from our little getaway to the sunny, warm, beautiful Florida Keys (if you missed the pics, check them out here) and I’m ready to share some more cold-weather favorites here on the blog. We didn’t cook at all during the 9 days we were away, which was actually really nice. My sweet momma spoiled the 4 of us rotten and chopped, cooked and baked for us the entire time we were there. We went out to dinner a few nights too, because we had to have the local fish (especially the mahi-mahi and dolphin fish). I love being in the kitchen, but it’s so nice [Read More]

  Mini 7 Layer Dips. Black beans, guacamole, salsa, Greek yogurt, lettuce, cilantro, scallions and bacon layered in individual cups and served with chips, crackers and veggies for the ultimate Game Day appetizer. The Big Game is coming up … and we New Englanders are very excited that the Pats and Brady are headed, yet again, to the championships. Last year we were in Hilton Head for the game and Adrian and I almost turned off the tv because of the up and down suspense of that game. Yikes, I get so nervous watching those games that are close down to the second. I can’t take the rollercoaster of suspense! Unless the Patriots are in the Big Game, I am definitely more interested in the commercials and the food than the game. This year, though, we’ll [Read More]

Cheesy Mushroom and Swiss Chard Bake

Cheesy Mushroom and Swiss Chard Bake. Garlicky sauteed baby bella mushrooms and Swiss chard tossed with sharp cheddar, chewy farro and tangy red onion all topped with more cheddar and crunchy seasoned panko bread crumbs and baked until golden brown. We’ve been loving “bakes” lately. I’m calling this a bake because … you probably remember … I don’t like the word casserole. That word reminds me of mayonnaise laden dishes – and I am NOT a mayo fan. But I do love many mayo-less casseroles, aka bakes. This vegetarian bake is one of our favorites. You can assemble it ahead of time so all you have to do is pop it in the oven 35-40 minutes before you’re ready for dinner. Have bakes or casseroles been on your menu this fall? What’s your favorite kind? […]

Ancient Grains and Kale Spaghetti Squash Boats

Ancient Grains and Kale Spaghetti Squash Boats. Roasted spaghetti squash topped with salsa, sauteed kale, cheddar, guacamole, red onion and cilantro, served in the spaghetti squash shell. This is an easy, healthy and flavorful dinner that’s perfect for two. Disclosure: I created these Ancient Grains and Kale Spaghetti Squash Boats for Drew’s Organics, maker of organic dressings and salsas as part of an ongoing partnership with them. I was compensated for the recipe creation, but not for this post and all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting brands that make My Cape Cod Kitchen possible! Have you roasted spaghetti squash before? How do you serve it? We love spaghetti squash in our house (well Lucca doesn’t, but Adrian and I do) – not as a replacement for pasta (we love pasta too!), but as […]

Sheet Pan Roasted Veggies & Tofu via

Sheet Pan Roasted Veggies & Tofu

Sheet Pan Roasted Veggies & Tofu.     Roasted cauliflower, beets, onion and tofu. A quick, easy and nutrient-packed dinner that’s ready in 30 minutes. There’s minimal clean-up, so it’s perfect for weeknights. Make it even quicker by throwing all the prepped ingredients onto the sheet pan then into the fridge in the morning, so you just have to pop the pan into the oven when dinnertime rolls around. You really don’t need a recipe for this Sheet Pan Roasted Veggies & Tofu “recipe.” Just throw cubed tofu onto a baking sheet along with your favorite veggies (cut into bite-sized pieces), toss with your favorite seasoning and throw it in the oven until the veggies are just tender – or cooked how you like them. You don’t need to worry about the time/temp for the tofu to cook, […]
