So, a new thing you may not know about me is that I spent four years as an official recipe developer. I wrote original recipe content for a unique, algorithm-based website known as Cooking PlanIt. From that job, I learned all kinds of food-and-interweb type […]
Homemade crackers, you ask? Yes! Homemade caraway-seed crackers are so much easier than you may think, and super flavorful. Whether you want to try something new for your next cocktail party, or get a group together for a fun DIY kitchen project, these crackers are […]
Ok, so churrasco steak is a dish I have been cooking for clients A LOT lately. What can I say? As the weather warms up, everyone just wants some grilled meat! My recipe for Churrasco Steak with Serrano-Lime Butter takes the traditionally, citrus-marinated steak up a few notches (if I do say so) by serving it with a compound butter and caramelized onions. Yum!
Ok, this is one of those recipe shares that kinda feels like cheating. I mean, this dish is soooooo incredibly simple. There’s no fancy chef technique, or clever kitchen hack that’s about to be revealed. My easy herb and ricotta pasta is just simple, to-the-point […]
Guess what today is?!?! Today is….my Mom’s Birthday! Happy Birthday, MOM!!!!
My mom is the best. Loyal, a good listener, generous, slow to anger. (I actually can’t remember the last time she was angry with me – even though I know plenty of times she could have been!) Best of all, she believes in me 110%, all the time, without waiver, and with the utmost enthusiasm no matter the circumstances. Pretty great, eh? Usually, to celebrate my mom I opt to cook for her, but this year we are doing things a little differently. Since we actually have a lot of things to celebrate this month (more on that later), I’m taking Mom out to dinner tonight. But, if I were cooking for her, this would be the dish – Seared Scallops with Corn and Tarragon.
I mean, it’s kind of a perfect, celebratory summertime dish! Perhaps you have someone you should be celebrating this month??
Friends, remember that recipe I shared a few weeks ago for Grilled Peach Salad with Crispy Kale and Avocado? Well, the inspiration (or, obsession…either way) for grilled peaches continues with this recipe for Grilled Peach Salsa. I mean, how can you not?! Grilled fruit in […]
With all the talk lately of seasonal produce and fresh vegetables, I nearly forgot it’s also Burger Season!!! Am I right?! My favorite way to make a burger at home is to use ground lamb instead of ground beef. After all, plenty of restaurants around […]
Recently I realized how veggie-focused my blog posts have been this month. Well, this post for Roasted Beet and Arugula salad is no different. What can I say? Can’t stop, won’t stop!
A big reason for my vegetarian-skewed diet these days has a lot to do with Hungry Harvest. I shared a post earlier in June about the food-rescue mission that recently began delivery services here in Metro Detroit. You can read more about their awesome mission here. As I’ve continued to receive my delivery boxes, I am getting an abundant amount of produce delivered straight to my door step! Cool, eh?
Today, I’m pulling from the archives, folks, and sharing my oldie but goodie recipes for Grilled Blueberry BBQ Chicken and Broccoli Salad. In my opinion, a quintessential summertime meal! It occurred to me recently that I’ve been posting mostly vegetarian recipes. The reality is, that’s […]
