Spinach and Strawberry Salad with Grilled Lemon Chicken

Lemon-Chicken-Salad-banner

My wife came down stairs after a nap and spotted this Spinach and Strawberry Salad with Grilled Lemon Chicken just as soon as I was done photographing at and just starred at it haha.  She was like, “what is that and can I eat it?!”  After a few bites she said with her mouth completely full, “this is what I want to eat every day of my life.”  I just laughed, but she’s right this Spinach and Strawberry Salad with Grilled Lemon Chicken is dang delicious!! If you’ve been following me for a bit you know I am all about…

Turkey Bacon Grilled Cheese with Provolone

While I was creating this Grilled Cheese with Turkey Bacon, Caramelized Onions and Fig Jam I was definitely making a fresh tomato soup behind the scene to dip this thing in, and it was glorious! I’ll have to redo the soup so I can give you the recipe, however the grilled cheese is beyond ridiculous to eat by itself. It has the perfect balance of sweet, tart, salty and savory all wrapped up in one amazing bite! The best part about this Grilled Cheese with Turkey Bacon, Caramelized Onions and Fig Jam is that it’s super easy to make, you…

Italian Ricotta Cheesecake Recipe with Fresh Figs and Honey

Italian-Cheese-Cake-banner

Man would my grandmother be proud of me for making this Italian Ricotta Cheesecake Recipe with Fresh Figs and Honey.  To be honest I’m not sure she would have known the difference, but with all the ricotta in this tasty treat it is definitely a must make!  Traditionally in a Roman style cheesecake it would use all ricotta, but we aren’t in Roman times anymore so cream cheese adds some nice richness to this Italian Ricotta Cheesecake Recipe with Fresh Figs and Honey. This dessert isn’t overly sweet and it’s gluten free thanks to Bob’s Red Mill Almond crust!  If…

Homemade Ice Cream Tacos Recipe

ice-cream-tacos-8

July is national ice cream month, as if me or my family needed another reason to indulge in ice cream.  I love all ice cream.  I love making it, I love smelling it and boy do I love eating it.  Whether it’s the local ice cream man peddling through the neighborhood or strolling through the frozen food section at the grocery store, it’s a staple in our home.  I promise I’m not blaming my wife here, but I never had much of a sweet tooth before I met her, and now I feel like I need it after dinner.  I…

Tomato Farro Salad with Salmon and Lemon Yogurt Sauce

Farro-Salmon-banner

When I make a dish that has multiple components to it, i.e. veg, starch, protein and sauce, I am always in search of the perfect balance, like in this Tomato Farro Salad with Salmon and Lemon Yogurt Sauce.  Nothing in the dish should over take the flavor of something else, it should however look to compliment There are some great chefs out there who can fit every flavor profile, sweet, savory, salty, bitter, and spicy into a single food item.  I however take a different approach and try to incorporate all of those flavors into separate items on the dish…

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…
