My family loves to be adventurous in the kitchen, and I’m lucky to have two young children who will try just about anything. This rarity allows me the freedom to try new recipes and even create my own. Whether your families are picky eaters or not, there’s something for you in my kitchen!

Spicy Chicken and Garlic Pasta

Spicy Chicken and Garlic Pasta
One of my favorite dinners growing up was my father’s spicy garlic spaghetti with roasted chicken and lots of olive oil. As a parent, I love to watch my kids scarf down my variation on a childhood favorite. To change things up and keep this dish pareve, I love to add kani (fake crab) instead of chicken to the pasta.

Freezer Chili

Homemade Freezer Chili
I have a rule in my kitchen to make a double batch of anything that freezes well, so there will always be something delicious to thaw for dinner when I’m feeling lazy. This homemade chili freezes incredibly well, although you might actually finish the whole batch before you get a chance.

Salsa Baked Salmon

On a long Jet Blue flight from Seattle (my hometown) to New York (my current home), I watched Italian American chef and TV personality Giada De Laurentiis make an incredible salmon recipe, which inspired my simpler version using jarred salsa right out of the pantry. It really doesn’t get any easier! The side of onion soup is a Greek version of one of my all-time favorites, French Onion Soup.

Huevos Rancheros

This dish is my American variation of a Mexican breakfast dish, huevos rancheros. Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner, right? Instead of buying tortillas, I choose to make my own—you won’t believe how simple the process is. I don’t think I can ever go back to store-bought flour tortillas.

What are you cooking for dinner this week? Time to get rid of the chametz.
