This is a wonderful salad, packed full of flavor. It is soooooooo good. Everyone loved it and commented how the cherries cut through the smokiness of the meat and balanced out the salad. The hazelnuts gave it a nutty flavor and nice textural crunch. This is a salad you will definitely like.
My, oh my…This is absolutely delicious. Want some?? You’ll have to make it yourself because we ate all of it. :) Continue reading Jalapeño Gravlax Cheesecake

This posts is for my friend Cecil. Cecil is a sandwich man. He occasionally visits the blog but not very often because Cecil hates seafood, of any kind. I try to tell him there are other things on the site that are good but Cecil doesn’t like to cook. He does like good food but his diet consists mostly of sandwiches. So CL, here is a new sandwich for you to try. For the rest of you readers, THIS IS A KILLER PANINI that you owe it to yourself to try, especially while fresh figs are in season. Better act fast otherwise you will have to wait until next year. :(
This is another beautiful, quick and easy dish. You can eat it warm (not hot, simply the residual heat from the pasta) for dinner, or for lunch at room temperature or cold. Baby Lady loves to take this for lunch. Continue reading Pasta Salad with Cherry Tomatoes, Bocconcini and Spicy Tapenade

So, I went to a local grill on a flyer. I don’t even remember the name and never went back. Nothing on the menu appeared appetizing so I settled on the portobello burger. It was the best part of the trip! Continue reading Mushroom Burger with Italian Red Sauce, Pesto, Carmelized Onions, Provolone and Parmesan Cheeses on a Kaiser Roll
