I love classic hummus, but this sun-dried tomato and basil hummus takes the dip to the next level. The flavors blend together perfectly, and the toasted pine nuts provide a nutty and buttery flavor. This hummus would be great to serve at any dinner party!
This recipe is a winner. The chicken is unbelievably tender and the depth of flavor is incredible. I guarantee you will want to drink the sauce! My boyfriend even said this is his favorite dish I’ve ever made–and I’ve cooked him a lot of meals!
It’s hot. I mean, really hot. So why did I make pasta? I suppose I’d have to go with laziness; I didn’t want to make a trip to the grocery, so i played the game of ‘use what you have.’ The dish turned out delicious, and not too heavy. My roommate, Megan, and I enjoyed a bowl of the pasta while blasting the air conditioning. It made the dining experience much more enjoyable. :)
As a little last hurrah before I got my wisdom teeth out yesterday, I decided to cook dinner for my family the night prior to my surgery—something that I wouldn’t be able to eat for a while. To be honest, I made sure to feast the entire day and indulged in a turkey and avocado sandwich on a freshly baked French roll from my favorite deli by my house.
For dinner, I flipped through one of my mom’s three massive recipe binders and found a chicken dish that I had never made before. I decided on tender chicken breasts stuffed with artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes and Fontina cheese drizzled with a creamy white wine and Fontina cheese sauce. It was the perfect hearty meal, which was even better served alongside a glass of my favorite pinot noir, La Crema.
As expected, I wasn’t able to eat such a gourmet meal yesterday. My food for the day consisted of some Ramen noodle broth and vanilla frozen yogurt from Golden Spoon. Since my mouth is in pain and it’s difficult to open my jaw, I really don’t have much of an appetite—that’s definitely a rare statement for me to make!
