Bathing suit season is here and we have a secret weapon to help you get ready, PESTO!
If your looking to keep calories down and still feel like your eating a gourmet meal, you have to start making some varieties of pesto.. Sundried Tomato Pesto is a delicious way to kick up any boring piece of grilled chicken or fish. The best part... there's no cooking involved. It's all done in a food processor, doesn't get any easier than that.
Throw some pizza on the "barbie"...
Enjoy some fun family time making Barbecued Margherita Pizza today. Nana's pizza sauce has delicious chunks of onion and garlic that you can really bite into. The rustic barbecue taste resembles a wood fired brick oven feel. It's all good stuff!
The distinct taste of truffles in these Parmesan Truffle Fries is unforgettable. If you have never tried them... you don't know what you're missing. This is a fantastic side dish. I love to serve this along side a great steak.
You can really turn that same old flank steak into a fun meal. That's what it's all about... to me anyway!! Making new dishes and beautiful creations for your family and guests to enjoy. Flank Steak Rollups are so much fun to make with kids; experiment with flavor and grill up something fun and delicious!
Clean off the grill and celebrate the weekend early with delicious Cilantro Lime Shrimp. Pair this with Avocado Mango Salsa and you are ready for your "kick off to summer weekend!"
Whoever thought about using a leaf of lettuce as a wrap was a genius. It's simple. It's light. It's healthy and delicious. Combine lettuce with a simple Asian style marinade that is very quick and easy to put together and make a whole lot of Chicken Lettuce Wraps for your Memorial Day party. They look beautiful on the table and people love them.
Memorial Day is just around the corner! You know what that means? Food, friends and BBQ's! I am in love with the flavor of the Fire Roasted Pablano Peppers in our Southwestern Guacamole! Take your basic guacamole recipe to the next level on the flavor scale!! The smokiness from the fire roasting, the sweetness of the corn, and the southwestern flavor of the pablanos are made for each other.
No More Boring Cauliflower!!!
Tired of the same old cauliflower? Well then, roast it, add a box of orzo, some pine nuts and our toasted bread crumbs. Roasted Cauliflower and Orzo is a delicious solution for cauliflower boredom.
Nothing to do tonight? One of our small gathering favorites is MUSSELS IN A WHITE WINE TOMATO BASIL SAUCE. Call over a few friends and make a meal out of a huge pot of mussels and a loaf of bread for a relaxing Saturday night with family or friends.
Spaghetti Squash kicked up a notch!
Here is a suggestion of a great pairing for that Parsley & Arugula Pesto we made. Spaghetti Squash with Pesto is so simple & delicious. Squash is great roasted, but if you want to kick it up a notch, add some of the pesto we made yesterday. Throw a spoonful on top of roasted squash and it will turn your side dish into a meal!
