Cream Cheesy Cubed Zucchini with Lemon and Oregano
I didn't start out trying to make a creamy zucchini recipe, but when I glanced in the fridge and saw the last crumbled remains of fresh cream cheese, I knew those green cubes sizzling away in the skillet were about to get enriched. While I'd normally have a hard time feigning such excitement over squash, I'm actually quite thrilled with how this came out.
This famous Argentinean sauce is perfect for any grilled foods. My catering customers love this sauce on garlic crostini with grilled flank steak slices.
Spicy Oil and Vinegar Bread Dip
This recipe is fantastic with warm crusty Italian bread, or any other bread for that matter! Use extra virgin olive oil and really good aged balsamic vinegar. For best results, make a day ahead and store in the refrigerator so flavors can meld.
This flavorful recipe is good warm, cold or at room temperature. It works very well for picnics.
Fast, Fresh Grape Tomato Salad
Super simple yet delicious and beautiful, this grape tomato salad rounds out any meal adding loads of bright red color and tantalizing flavor. Sweetened rice vinegar adds a bit of sugar and acid, and the olive oil helps the body to absorb the lycopene in the tomatoes. Hint: replace the oregano with another dried spice that compliments your meal.
Greek Lemon Chicken and Potatoes
I don't have the energy or courage to cater for a living but, if I did, this Greek lemon chicken and potatoes would be one of my go-to entrees, and not just for big, fat weddings. It's a proven crowd-pleaser, simple to make, and easy on the wallet.
Cajun Spice Mix
This is a mildly hot Cajun spice mix you make yourself with common spices from your pantry. For those who like it hotter, add the optional crushed red pepper. This makes a great oven Cajun hashbrowns!
White Chili with Ground Turkey
A great alternative to regular chili. This dish has a unique taste that even the pickiest eater will enjoy. Make sure you spice this one to taste! Garnish with cheese, salsa, sour cream and cilantro leaves, and serve with rolled tortillas on the side.
