When my husband and I were in Seattle this past fall for our 11th-anniversary trip (yep, 1 year late on the intended 10th anniversary trip…) I fell in love with the most incredible chilly-weather drink at the Public Market: the London Fog Latté. I fell HARD. Like we were in Seattle for less than 48 hours and I had one both mornings, the second one minutes before we headed to the airport! I’ve recreated it several times back in NYC and I’m STILL enjoying it now in May
I just can’t let Cinco de Mayo pass without having one of these Cucumber + St. Germain Margaritas. I discovered St. Germain years ago and then came across THIS recipe from Freutcake. I’ve been playing with it ever since! I LOVE the simplicity and how a few ingredients make each other sing.
Many people have one. Lots don’t. But the ones that do tend to guard it. So if you don’t already have your own guacamole recipe then look no further. And hey, even if you do you I bet it doesn’t hold a candle to my Holy Guacamole! You won’t believe how 5 ingredients can come together to make something so bright and clean.
Although you can probably subsist on margaritas and guacamole – aw, college – I like to have a little something that constitutes a meal on Cinco de Mayo! And I really can’t get over how quickly and easily this Citrus Salsa comes together. It’s one of those ready-in-minutes toppers for whatever fish or chicken your heart desires.
If you’re anything like me then your Easter basket(s) OVERFLOWETH with hard-boiled eggs. And while I can tuck into a deviled egg pretty much anywhere anytime any day, I’m just deviled egged out at some point. WALK AWAY FROM THE MAYO. Enter curry powder. Warm marinara sauce. A bed of cauliflower rice. And an open mind. If you’re a “hard-boiled eggs are to be served cold” kinda person then this warm dish is going to be a stretch for you. SO GET LIMBER. Curried Eggs with Cauliflower Rice is going to turn you into a believer!
I started making this meal almost 10 years ago when I was working at Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food Magazine. I had only ever had hard-boiled eggs deviled (with that signature ’80s sprinkle of paprika) or in a salad. When I saw this recipe in the May 2008 issue I thought “Huh.” And immediately had to give it a whirl! Over the years I’ve adapted the original recipe to my taste and dietary preferences, which means you can too. Prefer rice over cauliflower rice? No problem. No shallots but you have an onion? Cool. A red onion? Totally fine. Got plain yogurt on hand and don’t want to buy an entire can of coconut milk just for this recipe? YOU DO YOU. The most important parts are the eggs, the marinara sauce and the curry powder. The rest is up to you.
