This easy peasy side is a show-stopper. It has just six ingredients, one of which is pancetta. It also can be ready in around 15 minutes, which means you can make this just as easily for your next party as you could for dinner tonight.
Pancetta & Peas
1/4 c. shallot, finely chopped
2 slices pancetta, chopped
1 sprig of thyme
1 bag of frozen peas
1 tsp. red wine vinegar
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium. Add the pancetta. Cook until crisp about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel lined plate. Add in the shallot and thyme. Cook until they are soft. This should take about 5 minutes. Pour in the bag of frozen peas and add the red wine vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. Cook for about 3 minutes more or until the peas are warmed through. Season with pepper. Add salt if you’d like, although I found I didn’t need it.

This 4-ingredient side is a great example of how something healthy can be improved with just a touch of something decadent. Cauliflower is roasted at a high…
This recipe is a family favorite. Smoky and addictive, these thighs have Ellie eating chicken. CHICKEN. The protein she dreads just a little less than fish. (Keegan and I also love it.) No one goes hungry. And, this 15 minute main dish is fast and flavorful. Smoked paprika, garlic powder and onion powder are rubbed…
Last week, I shared a 15 minute meal plan builder perfect for hectic nights when you don’t even have time for takeout. Today, I’m talking about a favorite 15 minute main dish. To prepare it, tilapia is cooked in a non-stick skillet, alongside lime, butter and fresno chilis. Sautéed over a medium heat, the butter…
In my 20’s, meals could take hours to make, because there wasn’t a small person who lived with me that cared how quickly she was fed. But now, there is. She also comes with 1,000 activities, which means we need meals to happen quickly. So today, I’m spilling secrets on how I make dinner happen…
