Bloody Mary Panzanella. Wonderful summer tomatoes? Stale bread? Cocktails on the brain? Use the ingredients for a bloody mary to make dinner! Why not?
Pork Tacos with Green Tomato Salsa. Summer in a tortilla.
Sushi Ceviche. Makes so much sense! My favorite flavors from Sushi restaurants in one simple salad.
Pistachio Arugula pesto on gnocchi.
Cashew Curry, from 101 recipes. Tofu, cauliflower, green beans fattened and flavored up with cashews, curry and coconut milk. Yum!!
Bread. Brie. Basil. CHOCOLATE!?! Grilled. Happy Birthday to me!
Bavarian-Style Stew, a recipe I found in 1968's Better Homes & Gardens Casserole Cook Book. You use gingersnaps to thicken it!!
Parsnips Gratin with bacon and sage. A perfect way to introduce newbies to the wonders of parsnips.
Apple Butter made in a crockpot? Brilliant! On top of toast with BACON? Heck yes.
Roasted veggies, which would become a lovely, comforting bruschetta.
Tiramisu-German Chocolate Hybrid cupcakes. For a wedding shower in which the bride is Italian and the groom is German. It's like they had babies, but they turned out to be cupcakes!
Pork pies! Little ones, baked in a muffin tin. Cute, yes, but I'll eat them too!
Beets make this chicken curry super-bright pink. Lovely!
Summer on a plate, otherwise known as caprese salad. It's the natural thing to make with a gift of home grown tomatoes. And it goes with another summer star...Chanterellle mushrooms...
It's chanterelle season! How about some Barley Risotto with these forest treasures mixed in?
Grilled shrimp. Grilled Asparagus. Livin' in perfect harmony on top of some creamy polenta.
Beef Skewers and white bean mash from the book Nigella Express. Nigella has yet to fail me!
Fig & Pistachio goat cheese spread.
Turkey Kefta with an onion-raisin sauce and a side of Moraccan carrot & ginger salad. Ready for summer much?
Deep Fried Pickles? YES! As a topping on a BBQ pork sandwich? Heck yes.
tofu tushies. yup. baked tofu shaped like rumps.
For many crazy (crazy-awesome, of course) people, Spring means Morels. Lucky me, a friend gave me some of his precious finds. I think I treated them right...
What to bring to St. Louis Food Blogger potluck? I opted for mini-meatloaf cupcakes.
Jack's Sandwich of Awesome.
Irish soda bread with golden raisins and caraway seeds. An intriguing accompaniment to a big huge Irish feast!
Pancetta cups with eggs and my very first hollandaise.
I like the idea of Budweiser's Chelada (a combo of beer and Clamato), but the actual product could be better. Why not make my own? It's only logical, people.
An atttempt at sauceless hotwings. These were yummy and well-fried...but not hot. We're looking for ideas on why they lost the heat, and what we can do next time to make our tongues tingle.
Mark Bittman's Pork Pernil (and what to do with all the leftovers!).
