You’re a (Colorado) Peach.

When one has a lug of peaches, fresh mozzarella in the fridge, and a friend popping over for lunch, who graciously agreed to provide the fresh basil….this is what happens… I will let the unfiltered picture tell the story. Special thanks to The Georgia Peach Council who posted this winning recipe. Sorry Georgia, these peaches were from Colorado. … Continue reading

Panzanella Salad, Caprese-Style

Panzanella Caprese

We enjoy this “White Bean Panzanella Salad” from my America’s Test Kitchen Healthy Cookbook. It kind of reminds me of Caprese Salad, which features tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil. Caprese meet Panzanella. Panzanella, meet Caprese.  I added fresh mozzarella pearls to ATK’s Panzanella. The result is a fresh and substantial salad; it’s a meal in itself.

Sweet Potatoes with Roasted Grapes, Goat Cheese & Honey

Roasting fruit is unexplored territory. Until now. I must say that it was worth the venture. Roasting grapes changes them a bit. They become sweeter and softer when roasted. They would be a great yogurt topping or snack when paired with cheese. If you do a web search you’ll see that there are lots of … Continue reading

Asian Chicken Meatballs with Peanut Sauce, Red Curry Couscous and Zucchini

We don’t have many meatball fans in this house, so once I found this Williams Sonoma recipe, I had high hopes for some meatball converts. Rather than beef, the meatballs are made out of chicken and incorporate these Asian flavors: ginger, lemongrass, cilantro, soy sauce, and garlic. The original recipe is an appetizer–pretty little meatballs served on lettuce leaves. I want … Continue reading

Roasted Balsamic Parmesan Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts “peak” season begins in September! This is one of my favorites, roasted brussels sprouts. Roasting brings out a rich flavor because of the caramelization that occurs. You can roast them whole, but I slice them, which means a shorter cook time and more surface area which browns. The flavors of this dish include balsamic vinegar and … Continue reading

It’s coated in an acidic & nutty dressing featuring lemon, garlic and tahini. (Tahini is sesame seed paste used in Middle Eastern foods, like hummus.) This dish is so delicious, it’s … Continue reading

Roasting is one of my favorite methods of cooking vegetables. It’s easy and the flavor that develops is unmatched. These “no fry” Roasted Sweet-Potato Fries are a hit. I’ve even tried it with carrots; the kids love it! Also, here’s a useful list from Eating Well about cooking veggies (scroll down to the alphabetical list). Roasted Sweet-Potato … Continue reading
