If this is a long holiday weekend for you, I hope you are enjoying it so far! I wanted to give you a heads-up to save the date in your calendar – if you take my online monthly cooking class, my live office hours will be this Wednesday at 12:00 pm PT/3:00 pm ET.  Even if you haven’t viewed the February class, you are welcome to join the zoom and ask me anything or just hear what other students want to talk about.

ALSO, if you live locally, I am hosting a discussion with best-selling author Rebecca Serle at Pages Bookstore in Manhattan Beach on Tuesday, March 7th at 6:30 pm.  Her book One Italian Summer will be released in paperback so come join us for prosecco and a lively chat! Here’s your dinner planner for the week:


Meatless Monday: Baked falafel with your favorite accompaniments like pickled onions, tahini sauce, lettuce wraps or pita.  You can also saute the falafel if you want to cook them faster.  It might sound odd, but creamy cabbage and avocado slaw goes great with falafel!

Tuesday: South American Roast Chicken with Green Sauce from Kitchen Matters, (my favorite chicken recipe ever and the best sauce ever), sautéed sugar snap peas with mint (olive oil, garlic salt and pepper + mint at the end)

Wednesday: One pot farro primavera, add a salad if you need more

Thursday: Curried Turkey and Vegetable Stir Fry from Quicker than Quick served with steamed rice

Friday: Wild Salmon Burgers, Mediterranean quinoa salad or dandelion and radicchio salad

Saturday Brunch: Cauliflower and kimchi “fried rice” from Gwyneth Paltrow’s book “It’s All Easy”, topped with a poached or fried egg

Sunday: Slow cooker chicken tacos, tortillas, cilantro-lime slaw, cooked rice, salsa, guacamole



Here’s what you can do in advance if it helps you: 


Soak chickpeas


Make falafel mixture

Make tahini sauce

Wash greens 

Make dressings  


Marinate chicken


Cook quinoa if serving quinoa salad


Form salmon burgers
