Tuesday already coming to a swift close and the ARF/5-A-Day roundup is upon us. My mom and I escaped for a quick dinner out, and I got the opportunity to introduce her to The Melting Pot, a fondue restaurant. I haven’t been there in awhile and it made for a perfect dinner on a wet and windy evening. I cannot wait until warm weather is upon us full-time, making way for spring and summer fruits and vegetables, and weekly trips to the farmer’s market. Until then, we have our ARF/5-A-Day roundup. Here’s what’s cooking up this week:
Claire from Cooking Is Medicine is up first, continuing her tradition of baking with bananas with her Banana Pecan Muffins. Nicholas and I made Banana Bread over the weekend; we just might have to try this recipe next … once we have the perfectly overripe bananas ready:
Everything is better with cheese, and The Cookbook Junkie proves that with her Cauliflower with Cheese Sauce, taking a trip down memory lane this week:
More Bread and Cheese, Please tackles one of my favorite vegetables tonight with her Artichoke-Prosciutto Risotto. Risotto is one of those things I have yet to try and make at home, but her version sounds like a perfect place to start!
A Scientist in the Kitchen joins us this week with her very ARF/5-A-Day friendly Yogurt with Green Tea Powder:
Table for Two takes Chicken Noodle Soup for a spin this week with her Thai version:
Diet, Dessert and Dogs goes green with her Bittersweet Salad with Apples and Dandelion Greens:
