I am obsessed with avocados! They are one of my favorite foods in the world. Yesterday, I wanted to make a snack to enjoy while I watched my beloved Nittany Lions. I make guacamole all the time, so I decided to spice it up a little. Roasting the tomatillo and jalapeño gives this guacamole a smoky flavor! Enjoy
After slow roasting grape tomatoes, my kitchen smelled wonderful. A little orzo, some fresh herbs, the fragrant juicy tomatoes – it became the perfect side dish. [click to continue…]
Slow roasted oven dried tomatoes are so fragrant and flavorful. If your tomatoes are just starting to go soft you can roast them and they have a whole new life. You’ll love this recipe because you can put the tomatoes in a small container, pour some olive oil on top and keep them in your refrigerator. I’ve followed this with a post using the slow roasted oven dried tomatoes in an orzo salad.

Guacamole is one of our absolute favorite snacks. We are always searching for new ways to enjoy it, whether we eat it on chips or rice crackers or right from the spoon! Guacamole peppers are the new favorite, they contain all the delicious guacamole flavor with a nice flavorful crunch created by the pepper. If you are looking for a low calorie way to eat guacamole or a just a new way to serve the snack guacamole peppers are perfect for you!
Asian greens are strong, spicy and peppery. They are also very beautiful. You’ll love this salad because it’s easy to put together, it’s a fun dish to make when friends are coming over and quinoa is full of protein.
If you can manage to not eat them all as soon as they leave the oven, they make a great addition to any salad! They act almost as croutons adding a tasty bite!
I woke up to another gorgeous sunny day. Stefanie and I were planning on cooking together so I headed to my local farmers market. They had ripe sweet tomatoes, aromatic mint and big beautiful bunches of parsley. We prefer Italian parsley to curly parsley because it has a stronger more pronounced flavor. My lemons trees aren’t quite ripe so I picked up a few of those and headed home. Tabouli Salad tastes so fresh. Although the perfect salad for summertime in the winter it brings the sunshine back into your kitchen.
