Grilled Pear Salad

Grilled Pear Salad

With Feta

Posted on May 14, 2015
Grilled Pear Salad With Feta is a surprising salad. The smoky sweet, warm pears are matched well with the feta cheese for a rich, lavish flavor without spending the big bucks. We made this to go with the Easy Goats Cheese Soufflé because I didn't want to have something too heavy with it. All in all, this was a very satisfying and light meal that didn't leave us wanting more.

Mediterranean Lamb Pita

Mediterranean Lamb Pita

With Pistachio Pesto Wet Rub And Greek Yogurt Sauce

Posted on May 14, 2015
A mouthful in more ways than one, these Mediterranean Lamb Pita With Pistachio Pesto Wet Rub And Greek Yogurt Sauce were absolutely delightful. Even the picky ones enjoyed this meal. I was dubious about the pistachio pesto to begin with, it tasted like it needed something, was missing something, but when we slathered the lamb bites with it, the pairing turned into heavenly morsels of meat. The runny greek yogurt sauce was flavored with garlic, dill and a little lemon pepper for a hit of tangy, garlicky goodness. All of this was piled onto a steamed pita (they're more flexible) and you had some sort of Mediterranean lamb taco thing happening.

Lamb Sliders

Lamb Sliders

Easy and Fancy

I made these Lamb Sliders for Mother's Day Luncheon. I wanted to do something like an afternoon tea, but with a grill spin. I still wanted it a little feminine, but manly enough for my husband to eat without feeling like he should be in a powdered wig with his pinky out. I paired the Lamb Sliders with a simple salad of fresh spinach, arugula, pecans, cucumbers,  and cranberries, and added some Creamy Poppyseed Dressing which added a light and fresh dimension to the whole dish, pairing beautifully with the Sliders.  If you make these for Mother's Day, you will be your mom's hero. Though you can also make these easy little Lamb Sliders for the next big game, tailgate party, or event too, cause they're pretty dang good. Did I mention they're really easy too?

Grilled Chicken Enchiladas

Grilled Chicken Enchiladas

With Homemade Enchilada Sauce And Refried Beans

Cinco De Mayo is just around the corner. If you plan on celebrating, you have to serve food. These Grilled Chicken Enchiladas With Homemade Enchilada Sauce And Refried Beans are spectacular. They don't look like much, but flavor wise? Muy Bueno! So many different layers of texture and taste wrapped into one tortilla! It's like Cinco De Mayo on your tongue. Wait! It IS Cinco De Mayo! 

Now I opted to make everything (except the tortillas) fresh, but you certainly don't have to. And you can definitely taste the quality and difference. I also suggest that you double the recipe for the beans, they're pretty good, and like that Thai Chili Guacamole, which I highly recommend you make and have on hand for this meal, you will want to put that stuff in/on everything.

Grilled Jalapeño Margaritas

Grilled Jalapeño Margaritas

Posted on April 29, 2015
Grilled Jalapeño Margaritas. I guess that sounds really weird. I mean it does sound really weird. But they're super strangely yummy. My first foray into the land of tequila has resulted in success. This slushy drink, was inspired by a title that I read somewhere, though I may have read like two different recipes and conglomerated them into one. I do that a lot. Mother has a dusting mitt in her car, I totally thought it read disgusting mint. So you can see where this went. Where was I? Oh right. Grilled Jalapeño Margaritas. After slaving toiling joyously in front of a grill all day, something cold and fun is definitely in order. Not to mention it's totally the traditional drink of Cinco De Mayo - I think?

Margarita Curd Cheesecake

Margarita Curd Cheesecake

Perfectly Balanced Sweet And Tangy

Posted on April 29, 2015
Part of celebrating Cinco De Mayo is having a fantastic dessert to go with your amazing meal. I was going to do some sort of "Mexican" food like a quesadila or chimichanga filled with fruit and chocolate, but I had all these limes and tequila, and let's face it, you know my opinion on cheesecake. So I made Margarita Curd Cheesecake instead. First of all I was quite inspired by a dessert I taste tested at Costco a few weeks back and fully intended on recreating - a lemon curd, crumble topped cheesecake pie, and with Cinco De Mayo around the corner too, I had all the stuff to make a rockin' lime curd. Well I added tequila and things got a little out of hand, and into my mouth. You have to make this delicious, creamy dessert.

Hollandaise Alfredo Pasta

Hollandaise Alfredo Pasta

With Grilled Chicken And Vegetables

Posted on April 14, 2015
In honor of National Eggs Benedict Day on April 16th, I made Hollandaise Alfredo With Grilled Chicken And Vegetables to use up the remaining (GASP!) hollandaise sauce. Once you get over your shock that I could have possibly left hollandaise sauce after Benedict for breakfast, you can revel in the absolute audacity that I have put it into a cream sauce for a pasta dinner. Then you will think that I am a sheer genius. Then, you will make this and collapse into your seat from the outright amazingness of the flavor. Am I done? Hardly. You gotta try this!

Lemon Rosemary Chicken

Lemon Rosemary Chicken

With Honey Basil Carrots

I made Easter Dinner last week so that you were good and prepared. But it also happened to be Passover on April the 3rd of 2015. As a food blogger, I feel that it's my duty to make food that represents all people and cultures, and pay respect to the food they eat and why it's eaten. I made this Lemon Rosemary Chicken With Honey Basil Roast Carrots for Passover, and hopefully I did this right. 

 

Now I was supposed to make a roasted chicken for this meal, however when I opened the packaging, I discovered that my beautiful, properly prepared, kosher, organic, chicken had gone rancid! Such as the case, we had to improvise. Lucky for us, there were some chicken breasts in the freezer. I can't guarantee that they were prepared in the proper fashion, but we made do with what we had. The rest of the meal I was careful. I did not mix dairy with meat at all, nor did I incorporate flour or leavening agents into the meal. So all in all, aside from the chicken and my camera battery dying, I believe this was a success.

Crispy Potato Galette

Crispy Potato Galette

Your Potatoes Will Never Be The Same

Posted on April 07, 2015
Crispy Potato Galette is like crunchy potato heaven. A delicious pie of crispy potatoes. It's like nothing I have ever had. And I think this may be the only way I prepare potatoes forevermore. Can you tell I enjoyed it? Are you sure? Yes, I thought that it was strange that this recipe is named like a razor, but the only thing this recipe is cutting is your preconceptions of what a potato side dish could be. I took it a little easy on the flavors, opting for salt and pepper and a little fresh rosemary basically, and what we got in return was pure awesome. Go ahead, try this for yourself! Right now! I mean it! I say that a lot don't I? What can I say? I love food.

Posted on April 07, 2015
Flourless Apple Crisp With Cranberries And Pecans is the perfect end to any meal. This recipe is gluten free if you ensure that you have procured certified gluten free oats. And the best part is that you can pretty much put any kind of oats you have in there too, steel cut, quick cooking, whole, you name it. The sweetness of the apples and the tartness of the cranberries is all you need, and this Flourless Apple Crisp makes for a light and tasty end to a good meal. Or you could eat it for breakfast.
