Never the same

We joke that we never repeat a recipe. I'm not sure if that's 100% true, but its not far from the truth. The fact is that its so easy to take some base knowledge and switch up the ingredients that you really don't need to repeat. And more importantly, we just don't have the time to spend hours in the kitchen. So, here are some more quick and easy dinners.

First, gnocchi with grilled brussel sprout halves, pancetta and parma ribbons.

Next, is a leek and squash tagine with salmon. I heated up the tagine bottom, added salmon that was rubbed in palm sugar with a hint of tumeric, then I shut the lid and let it sit for a few minutes. I removed the fish, added the squash and leek and put the lid on again. Served topped with ricotta fesca cubes. This was an excellent meal.

And last is chicken rubbed with pomegranate molasses, red potatoes and onion. Not the prettiest, but it was very good. We enjoyed this topped with some pomegranate molasses coated walnuts that a friend gave us which were outstanding.
