This weekend I cooked with two new (to me) ingredients: fennel and fresh beets. Both were easy and delicious - if you haven't worked with them yet - I encourage you to give these recipes a try.
Figure 1. Out of the oven: sausage, fennel, and ricotta pizza.
Figure 2. Friday night's dinner: sausage, fennel, and ricotta pizza and an arugula and mushroom salad.
Figure 3. Saturday afternoon baking: cranberry flaxseed muffins.
Figure 4. Out of the oven: turnip and sweet potato gratin. Holy freakin' crap this was amazing.
Figure 5. Saturday night's dinner: turnip and sweet potato gratin, maple-balsamic-glazed pork medallions, and steamed broccoli.
Figure 6. Out of the oven (this is one of my favorite healthy go-to dishes): baked vegetable ziti.
Figure 7. Sunday night's dinner: baked vegetable ziti and beets with shallot vinaigrette on top of raw spinach. Delicious!
