Asparagus, leek, goat cheese and prosciutto pizza
Spring weather has been gracing New York since February, and finally spring vegetables are here! Monday night I chose a few of the Springtime’s key offerings and put together a delicious and deceivingly simple dinner. We started with a salad of endives, radiccio, arugula and pecorino; and the main event was the pizza: an asparagus, leek, goat cheese and prosciutto pizza. To make the pizza, I sliced one, whole leek – making use of both white and green – and sauteed half of it in olive oil for 12 minutes. Meanwhile, I broke off the ends of the asparagus spears and cut the edible parts in fourths. I then stuck the quartered asparagus in the microwave for one minute to cook through a bit. While the leeks continued to cook, I worked on the salad. When the first half of the leeks were done, I removed them fromt he heat and set aside, and sauteed the next half in the same pan, but this time I added a shower of balsamic vinegar. While this batch was cooking, I rolled my pizza dough out on a floured surface and finished the salad. By the time the second batch of leeks was done, I brushed the pizza dough with olive oil, spread all of the leeks onto the pizza, layered the asparagus on top, and sprinkled chunks of goat cheese all over the pizza. When the pizza had cooked for about 11 minutes in the oven, I removed it and added the prosciutto, and then cooked it for one more minute. So easy, so good!

Green Lentil Penne With Goat Cheese Sauce
Recipe Courtesy of Explore Cuisine Pasta is always a convenient dinner option, but traditional noodles are caloric and offer few nutritional benefits. Legume-based pastas add extra fiber, protein, and iron to traditional pasta dishes. Balsamic vinegar, fresh thyme, and goat cheese makes this recipe really pop.

Mahi Mahi w Rainbow Medley
For our fish Fridays, we got the kids some mahi-mahi fillets and simply seared them on the stove top. We also included a fresh rainbow medley of diced red and green bell peppers and mangoes for some sweetness, creating a natural sauce/neutralizer for the fish. The great thing about mahi-mahi is that they cook well either baked, grilled, or in the frying pan without breaking into pieces like some other fish (be generous  with the oil though). We also love that it doesn't carry any of that fishy smell and the meat usually remains tender and moist during the cooking process. As for the dish itself, the kids enjoyed it and ate everything on the plate without complaints....even the greens, which surprisingly they liked the best.

Don’t pay attention to the temperature! Grilling is the perfect year-round activity, especially when using a robust brew like Samuel Adams Boston Lager that has a rich malt and roast character; it’s the perfect beer to emphasize the wonderful flavors the food gets from being grilled. The balance between the malt and the hops and moderate alcohol level make it a flavorful and complex brew that is perfect for pairing with all kinds of food.  Experiment!  Enjoy!

Smokin' Salmon Pizza
"In Norway, we eat a lot of salmon: poached, oven-baked, grilled—you name it. We also eat a lot of gravlax (cured salmon) and, of course, smoked salmon. Asparagus is a vegetable we often serve with salmon, and we also use it on this delightful pizza." - Craig Whitson and Tore Gjesteland, authors of Passion for Pizza: A Journey Through Thick and Thin to Find the Pizza Elite

Oven-Roasted Alaska Cod Gremolata
Recipe Courtesy of Alaska SeafoodA gremolata is a classic Italian condiment consisting of finely chopped herbs (most use parsley), lemon zest, and minced garlic. Its herbaceous and citrusy notes make it the perfect topping for the subtly flavored cod. Oven roasting the fish preserves its integrity, but just be careful not to overcook it.
