I am always looking for fun and exciting ways to add heat to a meal. I put it in my sangrias, popsicles and pretty much everywhere. Well, sometimes I just want to go straight to the source.
Fennel is not only tasty but high in Vitamin C and fiber. The plant’s bulb can be used in a variety of ways. It is perfect caramelized, on pizza, in a soup, over a salad or braised. Once you learn how to cut it properly, you will be adding fennel to everything!
The great thing about simple syrup is you can flavor it with almost anything, like lavender. I recommend this syrup for ice teas, ice cream and lemonade but experiment with it. I am sure there are many ways to enjoy it.
Instead of being tart as one would expect from a grapefruit-based drink, this roasted margarita is slightly smokey, crisp, and just a little spicy (thank you habanero). It’s perfect for winter. Curl up next to the fire and enjoy!
One of my favorites is fresh mango and the way it is prepared at food trucks throughout Mexico. It is so good that it’s hard to believe it is so simple. Fresh mango, cut into strips, is then spritzed with fresh lime juice and dusted with salt and chili powder. How good does that sound?
This salad recipe uses my Marinated Mozzarella Cheese which is bursting with lime, cilantro and basil–yum! It goes so well with the grilled mangos that it is bound to be a favorite.
This sweet potato soup recipe is simple to make and big on flavor, with curry spice and maple syrup. It’s also vegan. Fresh cilantro and ground clove top it off.
Margaritas have never looked more interesting. This Mexican Bulldog Margarita has a Corona beer turned up in it and is hand-crafted for extra lime flavor. It’s like being in Texas!
Not only is this baked risotto easy to prepare, but it is so hearty and versatile but probably illegal in Italy and some parts of New York. That’s okay, because this orange and vanilla bean risotto is delicious and worth a little hard time.
This 3-ingredient recipe uses butternut squash to add flavor and depth to traditional mashed potatoes, meaning no dairy required, making a quick vegan.
This salad is hearty and just slightly spicy from the Cilantro Lime Dressing. It’s also very fresh tasting and perfect for your next picnic. Something I look forward to now that the weather is much nicer.
My affinity for Brussels sprouts is no secret. I mean, have you seen my Balsamic-Roasted Brussels Sprouts? You will love these Amazing Brussels Sprout Latkes just as much!
This twist on traditional onion rings works both for a Super Bowl party or dessert. Try these fried apple rings with some caramel sauce and powdered sugar.
Baked eggs are amazing. Eggs baked in side other foods are even better! This artichoke baked egg recipe is an easy way to gourmet up your next brunch or breakfast.
Good produce makes a great meal. In this video I explain how to pick out the best fresh tomatoes whether you are at the farmers market or the grocery store. Fresh tomatoes should be full on flavor and very aromatic. With these quick tips, you will never buy a dull tomato!
There’s isn’t much I do not like with an avocado but wow, egg might be one of my favorites. That is no surprise, you’ve all seen me fry an egg inside an avocado a la “egg in the hole.” Well here is one more way to love avocados and eggs, right?
Is it just me, or can you drink like 8 mango lassis every time you go to Indian food also? I just love them. I had been wanting to make them at home for a while but, honestly, just didn’t trust myself around them. I figured in popsicle format it might slow me down a bit? Eh…probably not.
