Mediterranean Turkey Burger with Zucchini Fritter and French Remoulade

Every summer that comes along I always get pressured to buy turkey burgers by the pound at least once a week from my wife, so I whipped up this Mediterranean Turkey Burger with Zucchini Fritter and French Remoulade.  She is literally obsessed with turkey burgers, as are my in-laws, so every time I make them they seem to make arrangements to come over J; Needless-to-say, I live with Turketarains!  If you aren’t sure what that is, it’s someone who has taken the concept of eating turkey as much as possible to another level.  Now I’m not saying that it’s all…

Grilled Chicken Satay with Sweetened Soy Noodles

chicken-satay-7

I love simple foods, both to make and eat, and this Chicken Satay with Sweetened Soy Noodles is that to the T.  Big flavor, easy to prepare, and something a little different is what I am always on the lookout for.  If my daughter isn’t digging the peanut buttery taste from the chicken I know she’ll at least dig the sweetened soy noodles, which has veggies in it! To begin this recipe, I boiled the noodles first and then chilled them.  You can use a rice noodle, udon, soba, you name it, it can be used.  One of the coolest…

Avocado Yogurt with Muesli Cereal and Fresh Berries

Yogurt-Muesli-banner

As humbly as possible this Avocado Yogurt with Muesli Cereal and Fresh Berries is the best photography I’ve taken to date… Oh and it tastes INSANE too!!  I only put avocado in the title of the recipe but truth be told there are actually two yogurts, the other is a roasted peach and honey yogurt which compliments the cereal and the avocado yogurt like something from heaven, seriously!     To make the peach yogurt simply pit the peaches and brush them with some melted butter.  Next roast them in the oven on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper…

Orange Cornmeal Cake with Hazelnut Caramel Buttercream

cornmeal-cake-5

I am really into the dessert flavor combinations that hit both sweet and savory, and this Orange Cornmeal Cake with Hazelnut Caramel Buttercream is no different.  It’s got a wonderful delicate cake flavor and texture that is not too sweet, BUT marry it up with the amazing buttercream that’s been amped-up with Baileys® Hazelnut Caramel Blondie Coffee Creamer and you’ve got yourself one delicious pairing.  The best part about this recipe, it is simple!  My favorite :-). June is National Dairy Month—as if I needed more of a reason to stop by and pick up delicious items on my daily…

Summer Vegetable Pasta with Pappardelle

Summer-Pasta-banner

By the time summer finally hits I am so over all of the root vegetables and ready to indulge in some delicious fresh ripe sweet tomatoes, just like in this Summer Vegetable Pasta with Pappardelle.  Don’t get me wrong, I love root vegetables and all of the fresh produce available over the winter months, but summer just brings to light my most favorite veggies and fruits.  I’m Italian so liking tomatoes was a gene inherited at birth, and because of it I eat them and cook with them as much as possible when in season.     My biggest regret…

Vanilla Cashew Rice Pudding with Coconut and Passion Fruit

Vanilla-Cashew-Rice-Pudding-with-Coconut-and-Passion-Fruit-7

When I was growing up I remember my mom always making some odd, sweet luke-warm rice thing with cinnamon in it, which at the time seemed kind of gross.  Well fast forward 25 years and enter my Vanilla Cashew Rice Pudding with Coconut and Passion Fruit that I made myself.  The crazy thing is that it’s really no different than what my mom used to make decades ago, it’s just that I like it now.  Even when I was young and my mom made it I never even tried it, I just thought that I wouldn’t like it because it…
