If you take my online monthly cooking class, the March class is up and the theme is all-new recipes for Easter and Passover.  Yes, the recipes work for both holidays!! Here are the recipes covered:

Crustless Spinach-feta Pie (not a frittata), Honey-Lemon Roast Chicken with Thyme, Roasted Carrots with Calabrian Chile Yogurt and Mint, Wedge Salad with an Herby Dressing, and Flourless Brownie Cookies

As always, one of the things I strive to do is provide swaps for almost everything. I even provided a plant-based swap for the chicken (and it’s not fake chicken!) If you are allergic or intolerant to an ingredient for which I did not list a sub, ask me and I’ll give you a recommendation.

Also, if you live close to Manhattan Beach, please come join me at Pages Bookstore the evening of Tuesday, March 7th!  I am hosting best-selling author Rebecca Serle for the paperback launch of her delightful book, One Italian Summer. We’ll have a book chat and then meet all of you!! Tickets available here. Here’s your dinner planner for the week:


Meatless Monday: Pasta e Fagioli Soup

Tuesday: Orange and rosemary glazed chicken, sautéed mixed veggies (I start with olive oil, sliced garlic and a pinch of crushed red pepper, then I add quick-cooking veggies and salt and pepper to taste.  I saute whatever needs to get used up in the fridge.)

Wednesday: Spinach Risotto and sautéed shrimp, roasted asparagus 

Thursday: Mushroom and leek quiche with sweet potato crust, roasted cauliflower with almond-herb sauce

Friday: Spetses Braised Cod, fresh green salad

Saturday brunch: full-fat or dairy-free yogurt topped with my Crunchy Chickpea Trail Mix and diced mango. Feel free to replace the yogurt base with oatmeal.

Sunday: Chicken Larb Bowls from What’s Gaby Cooking 



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


Make stock if using homemade

Cook beans for soup if making from scratch

Make crunchy chickpea trail mix

Break cauliflower into florets


Marinate chicken


Make sweet potato crust for quiche and pre-bake


Cook vegetables for quiche filling


Thaw cod fillets in the fridge overnight if using frozen cod
