It’s leftover Sunday! Here’s what we’re cooking. Leftover roasted chicken with sautéed onions, peppers, tomatoes and jalapeño with a sauce made of bone broth chicken stock and heavy cream. Sauté onion with a little bit of olive oil until translucent, add peppers and cook until soft. Add chicken and 1/2 cup of chicken stock, jalapeño pepper and cook until thoroughly heated. In a separate pan melt 4 tablespoons of butter and when bubbling whisk is 4 tablespoons of flour. Stir for 3 minutes, slowly add one cup of bone broth chicken stock and 1/2 cup heavy cream. Add salt and pepper and simmer until thickened. While this is thickening add tomatoes to chicken and cook. Slowly add cream mixture to chicken, adjust seasoning and and cook for another five minutes on low heat. Can be served over pasta, rice or eaten just plain in a bowl.#leftovers #ThePrettyFeed
Dipping into the new local Korean food shop + not really knowing what you’re doing = delicious Sunday night noodle bowls 😀 Crispy togarashi pork mince with kimchi, noodles, spring onions, toasted sesame seeds, a fried egg & peanuts in chilli oil...so many of my favourite flavours & textures in one dish 👌
Anyone else love polenta? I do. Sometimes I love standing over the stove stirring it, getting into the mindfulness of the moment. However, sometimes I want it now, so this Instant Pot Herbed Polenta is perfect. Had this several days in a row! I served it beans the first time and then with a quick and easy tomato sauce the next time. So good.
And just like that, another weekend over, another week gone ... and we’re inching nearer towards the end of another year?!
Sometimes you wanna make from scratch...sometimes you wanna let someone else do it for you 😏 Lazy nibbly weekend food from @marksandspencer
where the charcuterie is 👌 and the hog roast sausage rolls are 👌👌
Don’t mind me...I’m just eating my way through Brooklyn! Shout out of you need recs 🙋🏼♀️
Like a little black dress, some things never go out of style - presenting one clean, green & beautiful freekeh herb taboulleh...
Sorry guys. Yes my tomato sauce was homemade. This only takes a few more minutes. Add chicken stock at the end if too thick. 👌🏻 #meatballs #homemadesauce
Cheeky chickpea curry. So easy even you can do it! You know who you are. #noexcuses
After 3 outstanding days of all things creamily-cheesily-garlicky-French, we’ve gone to India with curry spiced roasted cauliflower & carrots and a red onion, sultana & black kale salad...
New recipe + blog is up! STIFADO: a Greek stew teeming with flavors of garlic, onion, cinnamon, wine, bay leaf and other spices. 🤤 In Greece it’s commonly made with rabbit, at home in the states we usually use beef or venison as the base. Whatever you use, just create a flavorful sauce that you’ll want to savor every last drop of. 🥣 Recipe link is in my bio. Enjoy!
Trying to get into fall y’all. But the Santa Ana’s are blowing here in SoCal. So I turned these roasted sweet potatoes into a yummy chicken salad. That carrot ginger miso dressing went well so well with it. Think on your feet 🍠 #sweetpotato #pecans #cilantro #chicken
I woke up today feeling quite excited to go downstairs and eat a pile of cider donuts. Through the fog of recent sleep, I then realized I’d eaten them all; there’s only an empty bag. This saddens me.
so what better way to celebrate than with Yiayia’s melomakarona to get you in the mood for holiday baking. 💚 These cookies are spiced with orange and cinnamon and spiked with whiskey, and then topped with chopped walnuts and soaked in a warm honey syrup. Grab the recipe in my bio, and indulge on these aromatic cookies! 🤤 Have a happy Sunday everyone, I’m off to celebrate my Yiayia’s birthday today! #yiayiasbirthdayweek #yiayiastella
There is something about individual desserts that gets me every time. I like that it feels like it's all mine, I don't have to share it with anyone. The portion control helps too, though I frequently have to stop myself from grabbing another, especially another one of these Apple Tarte Tatin. Flip them over to see the the caramelized apple and top with vanilla ice cream. Heaven.
Yiayia’s orzo (kritharaki) is definitely one to try! 😋My yiayia makes me a batch nearly every month. She makes it for me when my parents go out of town, when I’m sick, or just because it’s a Tuesday. And when I say she makes it for me, she technically brings it over for my entire family, but it’s always me who hoards the pot and gobbles it down the fastest. It’s that good. Nothing brings a smile to my face quite like seeing my yiayia walk up the driveway carrying a pot of orzo. #yiayiasbirthdayweek #yiayiastella
Recipe link is in my bio 🙌🏼
Green’s a splendid color.
Finally, there’s a chill in the air and I’m ready for a little outdoor entertaining. I’m keeping it all snacky and stress free like big bowls of Manchego truffled popcorn. 🍿No need to wait for Halloween for tasty treats. Grab the recipes and the link in my profile👆Ydelicacies.com
Continuing on with my favorite Yiayia memories/recipes this week before her birthday this Sunday! 🎉 So for those who don’t know, my 90 year old Yiayia is on Facebook. She’s the one who likes, shares, comments all my posts. She even occasionally Facebook messages me and sends me recipes to try (how cute is she). Anyway, one day she sent me a video about halloumi fries, along with the message “you should try this.” 🍟
So I did and they are glorious! Just slice the cheese into thick strips like fries, dip them into flour along with your favorite spices, and fry them up! So easy.
Grab this recipe on my blog (recipe link on my bio). Enjoy 😋 #yiayiasbirthdayweek #yiayiastella

Yiayia’s lamb stew with potatoes and pea: one of my favorite recipes my grandmother makes and is perfect on a cold day where you just want to bundle up indoors with blankets and eat something warm. Get the recipe (link in my bio) and try for yourself. 😋🥣 #yiayiasbirthdayweek #yiayiastella
Yiayia’s birthday is this Sunday so this week I’ll be sharing some appreciation posts of special moments and my favorite recipes of hers. 🙌🏼 Starting with this one: a few years ago I was on a kick of cooking something new every Sunday. Salsa, lots of pasta and stir fry dishes, whatever, it was always something new. My Yiayia came over to cook with me or just eat whatever I made. 💙
Then one week I went in for PRK surgery (it’s like LASIK corrective eye surgery but more invasive). Which is why I’m wearing these unflattering giant sunglasses here because recovery was pretty painful and i was very sensitive to light. 👀
My Yiayia still came over and instead of just visiting, she got me up and taught me to cook her delicious banana bread! It was amazing.. and now I realize I will have to share that recipe with you all some day soon!😋 Anyway, she’s great and I just had to share this with you all. Hug your grandparents tight if you still have them with you. Xoxo #yiayiasbirthdayweek #yiayiastella
Chef Louis DiBicarri’s oyster creation at yesterday’s Boston Oyster Bash looked too good to eat... until I ate it.

DEETS : Brussels, cauli, greens, meatballs & side of broccoli from @diginn
This is what a frappe should be. No whip cream or carmel drizzle. 😏 frappes are easy to make and only require sugar, instant coffee (Nescafe is most commonly used), and water. There are three basic ways to serve a frappe: sketos (unsweetened), metrios (semi-sweet), and glykos (extra sweet). You can also order your frappe with a splash of milk by saying “me gala” (with milk). How would you take yours?
Whenever I spent the night at my grandparents’ home, breakfast was always an egg sandwich with a cold glass of milk. My yiayia (grandmother) would toast two slices of bread, spread some ketchup on the toast, and then put a fried egg in the middle. As a final touch, she would cut the sandwich into four squares for my tiny hands to handle. It’s so simple but the best egg sandwich I’ve ever had. ❤️
Now that I’ve graduated to cooking for myself (though I still get some of yiayia’s egg sandwiches from time to time), I like to make strapatsada (also known as kagianas).🍳 .
Strapatsada can be served for breakfast, or a light snack with some crusty bread on the side. Or, do a I do and make a sandwich out of it and make your own egg sandwich masterpiece, strapatsada style. 🍅

Have you read the latest issue of @insideneworleans
magazine? I’ve shared 3 yummy recipes that are filled with fall flavored goodness. Get your copy of the magazine or click the link in my profile for the dreamiest cheesecake with topping options of rich caramel or tart cranberries for all of your fall gatherings.

My dream house 🏡 will have an outdoor kitchen 🌳 and an outdoor bathroom. Like you do in tropical climates. Life is short: spend it outside! // homemade pizza in the wood fired brick oven 🍕
While the 🍆 hater is out, the 🍆 lover gets her fix...this #vegan
smoky aubergine dip from @deliciouslyella
is utterly scrumptious, full of tahini-paprika-sesame-peanut butter flavour and perfect for slathering on thickly cut toast & sweet potato fries 🙌🙌🙌
Roasted Tomato and Tuna Pasta - because sometimes you want dinner in under 30 minutes. Or maybe you always want dinner in under 30 minutes.
Getting the last bites of summer in before it’s supposed to drop TWENTY degrees later this week in Utah 😱 the classic Greek village salad is and will always be my go to 😋
I don't know about you, but I prefer grilling when the temperature starts dropping. I hate standing in front of a hot grill when it's hot outside. Too much hot. But let it get in the low 80's or even better the 70's and this Grilled Chicken with Couscous Salad is a no brainer.
Poached figs for a Tuesday. How are you feeling tribe? Tell me what’s going on in your world? I’ve lost my voice, stuffed my face with toblerone (only kinda joking darling 😘😘) and am currently sitting on the floor cos I’ve no energy to get up onto my bed. Yeah, great day 🙌🏽 | #loveisopen #daretobehonest #mydaysofar

Goooood morning everyone! Today is #nationalcoffeeday
☕️ so I’d thought I would share just a few of the many benefits of drinking coffee with you:
-increases energy levels
-contains lots of antioxidants
-boosts athletic performance
-can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s & certain types of cancers
-plus, It makes you (or at least me) more pleasant to be around 😏
Enjoy a cup or two today!
Happy to report we’ve got a rye-eggs-salmon-avocado sort of situation happening...
I think your Spiced Peanut Sweet Potatoes have sincerely changed my life tonight 😍 They are a complete triumph (that dressing!) especially when paired with your beautiful SundriedTomato Falafel...absolutely loving #deliciouslyellatheplantbasedcookbook

This combo—loaded with antioxidants, anti inflammatory properties &
Vitamins —will have you feeling invigorated, refreshed, & hydrated.

I sometimes add tumeric root as well ! Enjoy 😊 •3-4 celery stalks •1 cup spinach •4 cm ginger •1 green apple with skin on •1 cup of water •Juice of half a lemon 🍋
