We love to have a fresh and light alternative on the menu when grilling out or baking at home, so our at home cooking enthusiast Julie shared this amazing grilled Snapper and Mahi Mahi with citrus avocado salsa recipe with us. We can't thank her enough!
These bite sized snacks are inspired by our 'New England Comfort Food' episode of Real Food Real Kitchens. Guest Kevin's Mom would make cauliflower cheese bites in order to get him to eat his vegetables. It obviously worked well because to this day he still makes them along with many other traditional family dishes.
Snacking is one of our favorite things to do throughout the day. You will typically find us eating many small bites throughout the day rather than three main meals. For this reason being creative with snack creation is essential! We at least re-imagine traditional snacks like we did with this simple graham cracker snack.
A Caprese salad is one of our all time favorite salads. It's fresh, vibrant, flavorful, and light, and super simple to make. We could eat this triple layered salad almost everyday for lunch if we had to so we created this back to school version on skewers to also make it a fun salad to eat.
Growing up with a picky eater in the house, was always a challenge for my Mother. I hated eggs! So as a replacement for eggs in the morning, my Mom began making a tofu scramble for me. Here is a version of that recipe my Mom used to make... simple and delicious and full of spice!
We love all kinds of chips and dip but one of our favorites is Hummus with pita chips. There are many great brands of already made hummus you can buy in the store but it's super simple to make your own and it's less expensive.
Stretching the food budget each month is a must for most families, so finding simple and creative ways to use up those leftovers is important! We took our leftover roasted chicken and made these 2-minute BBQ chicken sandwiches.
Mac n Cheese is a no brainer dish that almost every child and adult loves! Here at Real Food Real Kitchens, mac n cheese is one of our all time favorites, so we came up with this #recipe for a creamy, smoky mac n cheese that is now on our menu almost every week! It takes very few ingredients and is incredibly simple to make.
What is a Mother sauce? Mother sauces in classical French cooking are the five families of sauce upon which every other sauce is formed. Memorize these five simple sauces, and everything else involving cooking is generally a breeze.
As the heat outside continues to swelter this summer, the last thing you want to do is bring that heat inside the kitchen. Yes we know how the saying goes, "If you can't stand the heat keep out of the kitchen," but we found a way to get those taste buds lifted without using your oven at all. Welcome this cool and creamy, no-bake peanut butter pie in to the picture this summer and save the heat to beat the winter blues when they roll around.
This chocolate cake recipe is a modern version of what our Grandmother used to make for us as children. It brings back childhood memories of celebration: Family, Food...Chocolate Cake, and Dad sneaking extra to us when we weren't supposed to have it!
Nothing can replace the warm buttery taste of movie theater popcorn, many have tried but there's nothing like the real thing. However this summer we have curated a select few popcorn delights, and one traditional recipe to make your own popcorn, that bring a unique twist to your traditional movie theater popcorn.
We love is this recipe for avocado and Havarti toast. Slice up an avocado, some Havarti cheese, a Roma tomato and you've got it! Do you have a 'go to' quick n' healthy snack? Share it with us!
While Spicy Peanut Sauce isn't exactly a 'traditional' family dish of ours, it has become a family favorite.
One of our favorite pasta salads is this light Mediterranean version. The feta cheese gives it that tangy burst of flavor when it's combined with the vinaigrette. The cucumber lightens the load while the pepperoncini ads a dose of slight spiciness and sweetness. It's the perfect salad to pack in to a mason jar and take on a picnic, or you can prepare a larger amount for a summer cookout.
