Baba Ghanoush

I am a huge fan of Middle Eastern Food and Baba Ghanoush is on the top of my list. Not only is it healthy, it’s vegetarian and most diets. It is a great dip and a great spread. You can serve it very similar as you would Hummus but with less carbohydrates. Some people add flat…

Spinach and Cheddar, Crustless Quiche

Quiches have always been a crowd pleaser and I love to experiment with the flavors. They are also extremely easy to put together so you can make a few different flavors to ensure that all taste buds are accounted for. By definition a quiche is a baked flan or tart with a savory filling thickened with…

GuacaTuna

My husband and I came up with the silly name for the dish since that is exactly what the dish is…tuna and guacamole. Here is how it came to be. So I was very busy yesterday on the computer, finishing my post real estate license exam and proofing my cook book but I was so…

Dang Good Chicken Wings

So if any of you ave ever been to the wing bar at your grocery, you’ll know that many times the wings look like they have been sitting there for a while. I guess it is a good concept for those in a hurry or when you are going to the beach to buy those…

Potato Pancake

Bruschetta

Talk about a staple in my home! This is actually in my cookbook but with a different herb, and like I’ve said, if you change one main component to a dish it can change the flavor profile completely. This dish I learned to make years ago and it is one of those dishes that I…

Spanakopita Empanadas

So I love spinach and I love to make spinach in so many different ways and since the flavor is subtle, you can add many different ingredients and spinach can adapt. I finally got my daughter to eat spinach by lightly baking spinach leaves into chips and then adding a little salt.  I also try…

Octopus a la Scampi

I love to eat octopus but I have never attempted to make it. There is a great fish market near our house that sells all sorts of seafood and every time I go in, I see the octopus and say, “next time I am going to go for it”. Today was that day! It’s funny…

The Perfect Guacamole

Avocado’s are staples in my home and they go in almost everything, even our shakes.  Avocado’s are incredibly nutritious and are heart healthy. Since they have a somewhat bland flavor and are extremely creamy they are great to add to sauces, salad dressings, shakes and just alone.  My husband eats so many avocados that I…
