Ugh. It’s been a week, and I’m still under the weather. I guess it’s a good thing I took vacation this week, but this wasn’t exactly how I was hoping to spend it.

On the plus side, being housebound means I’ve had plenty of time to tinker in the kitchen — and sip on cup after cup of homemade bone broth.

Frankly, after stuffing myself silly at our friends’ incredible Hanukkah dinner on Saturday night, I was inspired to get cooking once again.

We kick-started our Sunday with uova in purgatorio — eggs and sausage baked in a spicy tomato sauce.

After hanging out with a bunch of preschoolers for a couple of hours, I was ready for more playtime in the kitchen. These recipes are still in development, so I’m not going to let the cat out of the bag just yet, but here’s a peek at what I worked on.

First, a honey-lemon sauce:

And then, something to dip into the sauce…like chicken nuggets!

Guess what we had for dinner?

And before you freak out — no, we didn’t go an entire day without vegetables.
