IFBC 2010 Seattle recap.
We had our first frost, so this means I've gotta stuff as many peaches down my gullet as possible... maybe some prosciutto-wrapped grilled peaches?
Before summer slips away, I had to get one pie in... a luscious blueberry pie. Yip!
Mmm, seasonal fresh figs piped with creamy Gorgonzola dolce blue cheese and drizzled in honey. A great appetizer to serve as summer winds down.
Fresh restaurant-style salsa del Norte - the way they do it in New Mexico.
White peach sorbet: refreshingly fruity and in season - a great way to cool it.
How about a savory galette with bacon, parmesan, goat cheese, and zucchini?
Red bell pepper honey vinaigrette on blackened grilled flank steak and salad greens.
Limon sunrise cocktail - so fruity and colorful! Mixed with my homemade limoncello.

Cool down and relax. Honeydew granita is what's happening this summer.
Chinese sweet red bean (adzuki) soup.
Terrific grilled vegetable salad - a great way to get your veggies AND your summer on.
A little twist on an old favorite: Thai tea ice cream.
Pad see ew - Thai noodles based on Pim's recipe. Utterly fantastic. You want this. You do.

Thai cucumber salad. Pretty. Simple. Quick. Cool. Awesome.
A delightful little treat to give to someone you love (or like): a cream cheese brownie.
Italian meatballs from Lorna Yee's book, The Newlywed Kitchen. They're so good, it might be worth skipping the wedding and getting straight to the recipe!
Grilled salmon panang takes a few minutes to whip up and serve.
It's almost like a trip to the tropics: passion fruit ice cream.
Pickled Chinese Cabbage: makes a great appetizer or side dish, especially when the mercury is rising.
Carnitas - great in tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and your tummy.
With cherries flooding into the stores, how could I NOT make a cherry clafoutis? This one is better though, it's a cherry-almond clafoutis.
Plum blossom sushi.
Chile-lime chicken tacos - tangy, spicy (not too spicy), and teh awesome. Fast and easy too!
Intensely fruity, delightfully smooth - here is your perfect strawberry sorbet.
A nutty miso salad dressing just like the one you get at the sushi bar.

Homemade vanilla extract - heavenly.
