Orzo with Butternut Squash and White Beans. Roasted butternut squash tossed with orzo pasta and creamy, protein-rich white beans, topped with salty shaved parmesan. Fall comfort food at its finest. Inspired by mom. Loved by both my boys. For as long as I can remember, my mom has been roasting veggies. Lots of veggies. Multiple baking sheets of veggies at a time. Brussel sprouts, carrots, parsnips, onions, butternut squash … you name it. With lots of garlic salt and rosemary. Crispy, caramelized veggies ... the best. Now we roast veggies the same way. Roasted veggies is still one of my favorite smells and it always reminds me of mom’s cooking, especially in the cooler fall months and around the holidays. Another food and favorite smell in the kitchen is pasta – orzo pasta. Though we had all types of pasta growing [Read More]

Disclosure: I serve on the health professional board for the California Walnut Board and Commission, and they provided me and Adrian with the I Heart Walnuts running shirts you see in this post for this year's Falmouth Road Race. All opinions are my own and I was not compensated for this Chocolate Walnut Banana Smoothie post. Chocolate Walnut Banana Smoothie. Four simple ingredients (chocolate milk, yogurt, frozen banana and walnuts) thrown into the blender for the perfect post-race (and training run) recovery breakfast of champions. Well, maybe not real champions, but real life race finishers (like us!). This Chocolate Walnut Banana Smoothie has just the right combination of carbohydrates, protein, healthy fats (including omega-3 fatty acids - ALA - from the walnuts) and electrolytes to replenish your body post-workout. After many longer runs and after the Falmouth [Read More]

And, everyone can build their own tacos, which makes it an easy-to-please, fun dinner. You can either bake, pan fry or grill the white [Read More]

Caprese Potato Salad

I created this recipe for Drew’s, maker of all-natural salad dressings and marinades, 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! Caprese Potato Salad. This fresh, light, mayo-free potato salad is perfect for summertime cook-outs and picnics. It highlights the best of summer produce – fresh basil and tomatoes. I’ve never been a fan of potato salad or other mayo-laden “salads” like tuna, chicken or egg salad. My mom made tuna salad for us as kids, but she used a heavy hand of vinegar and little to no mayo. I liked and still like that tuna salad, but avoid all other creamy “salad” concoctions, especially those […]

Seared Scallop Cobb Salad

Seared Scallop Cobb Salad. Lightly seared scallops sit atop a bed of crisp iceberg lettuce, along with creamy avocado, pungent blue cheese, crunchy walnuts, crispy bacon, fresh garden tomatoes, earthy beets and sweet red onion. This is a seafood lovers cobb. We are seafood lovers. Are you? Most of you already know we love scallops in our house. In fact, they may just be our favorite seafood. And we get great local scallops here on the Cape. You can’t beat ’em. Grilled, seared, fried, raw (have you ever had scallop sashimi? SO good!), you name it. But, they’re pricey. At 19.99/lb, scallops aren’t a splurge we’re buying on the regular. When we do buy them, every month or so, we’ll buy just 1/2 lb and have them along with a small piece of fish. The scallops themselves […]

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! Grilled Eggplant Pitas. Toasted pita pockets stuffed with marinated and grilled eggplant, fresh baby arugula, crisp and tangy red onion, crunchy walnuts and drizzled with creamy, garlicky Drew’s All-Natural Tahini Goddess Dressing & Quick Marinade. Like many of you, we love to grill veggies in the summer – especially eggplant, portabellas, corn, onions, zucchini and summer squash. We rarely turn on our oven in the summer, unless we need to roast a bunch of veggies we’ve gotten from our CSA before they pass their prime. If we’re […]

Grilled Radishes with Ricotta, Apricots and Walnuts

Grilled Radishes with Ricotta, Apricots and Walnuts. Tender, smoky radishes topped with creamy and mild ricotta, sweet dried apricots and crunchy rich walnuts. A pretty and flavor-filled summer side dish that highlights spring radishes. Disclosure: I serve on the health professional board for the California Walnut Board and Commission, however all opinions are my own and I was not compensated for this post. We’ve been patiently awaiting the first week of our CSA (community supported agriculture) produce and cheese share from Coonamessett Farm in East Falmouth, here on the Cape. Last week was our first pick up, and, as we expected we were given more produce (salad greens, field greens, radishes, garlic, rhubarb, strawberries) than we know what to do with (well, not really than we know what to do with…BUT we’re going to have a LOT of produce […]
