Citrus and Zucchini Confit

A New Way to Enjoy My Favorite Citrus! One of my greatest joys, amongst many, of my recent move north, is the discovery of a sensational grocery store. In fact, I’ve never seen anything like it. One of the outstanding departments is the produce section. It is humongous, with a much larger selection than I’ve […]

Black Rice Stuffed Baked Tomatoes

Feta, Nigella Seeds, Pomegranate Juice and Arils Combine for a Unique and Delicious Take on Stuffed Tomatoes. I’ve been singing the praises of black rice for awhile now. I love its chewy texture and flavor. Plus, the deep purple color is so beautiful when it’s cooked. I find it irresistible in salads and mixed with […]

Red Fruit Salad with Lime and Chili Syrup

Here’s a Salad That Will Spark Up Any Meal! When fruits are at their peak, I don’t think you need to do a lot in order to enjoy them at their best. I love to serve them as salads and when I do, I keep everything else very simple. A grilled piece of meat or […]

Savory Tomato Cobbler with Cheddar Cream Biscuits

A Cobbler That’s Not Dessert? Oh, Yeah, It is a Very Good Thing. I’ve run across a couple of recipes for tomato cobbler throughout the years and I’ve always been intrigued.  I mean, come on. Doesn’t the thought of biscuits sitting on top of baked tomatoes sound good? I had visions of the bottoms being […]

Kimchi-Inspired Perilla Leaves

These Marinated Herbal Leaves Really Elevate a Plain Bowl of Rice. I don’t know if you’ve ever tasted perilla leaves. They’re big leaves that taste similar to mint and basil, but have a decidedly more intense and grassy flavor that also reminds me of deeply flavored spices. I bought these for the first time a […]

Blood Orange Salad with Creamy Whipped Dressing

Could Be My Last Orange Salad of the Season – So Let’s Go Out with a Bang. Well, citrus season is winding down, so this is probably one of my last orange salads until next season. I will still make an occasional salad using navel oranges that are available year round, but other fruits and […]

Lamb Kebabs on Beet Flatbreads

Lamb Kebabs on Beet Flatbreads

Skewers of Lamb Served on Top of Flatbreads is Never a Bad Thing. I made my Beet Flatbreads with Pomegranate Raita and served them with lamb kebabs. I love skewering meats. Something about it just makes it so much more fun to eat rather than simply slicing up a leg of lamb.  I’ve been hooked […]

Potato Galette with Tomatoes and Oranges

Potatoes, Crème Fraîche, Tomatoes, and Oranges Encased in a Buttery Crust – Sound Good to You? I was in the mood for a savory galette. And I had a day where I could spend time in the kitchen putting it together without any other pressing matters on the agenda. There are those days where you […]

Baked Black Lime Fries with Smoky Tomato Aioli

Oven Baked Black Lime Fries with Smoky Tomato Aioli

Is There Anything Better than a Crispy Potato Dunked in Something Delicious? Thick and crisp oven baked fries are a thing of beauty. I really don’t think of them as fries, per se. They’re bigger, so there’s more creamy inside of the potato and by tossing them in a couple teaspoons of rice flour, olive […]
