Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus with Herb Goat Cheese

Sometimes an appetizer is so incredibly great you consider having everyone’s portion all to yourself for dinner! That’s this one! Words can’t fully convey what the palate experiences but here goes. When you take the first bite, you feel the snap of the asparagus,  a crunchy salty bite from the prosciutto and then the herbed goat cheese oozes out and your mouth is in heaven. It’s even better than that so you’ll just have to try it for yourself!   Continue reading

Rosemary Roasted Red Skin Potatoes

Rosemary can be kind of intense. I really enjoy the smell of a Christmas tree or a pine forest but having that smell right at my finger tips was not my favorite smell so I didn’t use rosemary for years. But I do adore my husband and he likes rosemary so I thought I’d venture into the piney wildness and make him something with rosemary in it. Being an Irish girl at heart, the first thing that came to mind was potatoes. Continue reading

Baby Kale Salad with OJ Yogurt Dressing

I really like Kale in most forms. Roasted, shredded in a salad with other greens and cabbage, kale chips, in a soup but sometimes a plain kale salad can taste ans smell a bit like a freshly mowed lawn! If I am going to use kale in a salad alone then I like to use baby kale leaves. They are so tender and the flavor is much more subtle. Continue reading

Sherry Green Beans That Sing!

Sher-er-rry, Sherry baby. Sher-er-rry, Sherry baby. She-er-rry, can you come out tonight? Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons may not have been asking for Sherry in their green beans but what a great idea to party up those traditional green beans for Thanksgiving! Bring out the sherry tonight and everyone can sign a round of Sherry Baby and be thankful for the variety!   Continue reading

Pineapple Cabbage Coleslaw

My Mom made this coleslaw a lot when I was growing up and I loved it. It has the perfect combination of sweet from the pineapple, tart from the Granny Smith apples, crunch from the carrots and cabbage and a creaminess from the dressing.

Well, years later, I married a wonderful man that would eat anything but his adorable son was quite the opposite! Ryan is a very “selective eater” to say the least. I still tease him to this day that the list of things he won’t eat is like the list of things I will eat. Continue reading

Grilled Corn on the Cob with Garlic Butter, Lime and Cotija Cheese

There is so much corn in the grocery store right now that you just have to have it! Nothing is better than corn on the cob at the height of the season! Some people can and only will eat it with a little salt, pepper and butter but I like to dress it up so I am constantly experimenting with new flavor combos.

I had to turn to my favorite grill guy Bobby Flay because I had just run out of ideas. My brain was like a chicken picked cob with no inspiration left. Bobby to the rescue and dinner is shaping up! Continue reading

Limoncello Mascarpone Verrines

Most of us have heard of a parfait, but take that same idea and artfully layer ingredients in a small glass with either savory or sweet and you have a French creation called a Verrine (pronounced vair-EEN) from the French word for glass (verre). Tres chic, this one is served in a tall shot-glass!
