cioppino; italian seafood stew

For years I have ripped out recipes from every magazine, marked endless cookbook pages, and printed numerous websites, searching for the best tips on how to make Cioppino, a classic Italian seafood stew dish. This weekend I finally got around to making it…and it was so worth the wait! Three different fishes make it light enough for seconds while hearty vegetables and tomato broth makes it a filling dish. This recipe is mainly adapted from Ellie Krieger’s So Easy cookbook with a few Foodetarian twists. Check out this quick weeknight recipe for Cioppino.

vegetarian shepherd’s pie

One of our 2016 goals is to incorporate more meatless Monday’s into our weeknight dinners. We’re big on chicken and fish in our house but my oldest son loves his veggies, so why not use that to my advantage?! Here’s a vegetarian take on Shepherd’s Pie that won’t leave you missing the meat! Hearty mushrooms and lentils are filling, while garlicky mashed potatoes give the feel of traditional Shepherd’s Pie with bold, layer flavors. Here’s my meatless Monday Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie.
