The Ultimate Veggie Burger

Ultimate Veggie Burger 7-13I know I’m going out on a limb by calling this the Ultimate Veggie Burger, but after our Summer Garden & Grilling Cooking Class, all ten people who tasted it agreed.  What makes it the ultimate?  First of all, it is true Fresh Food in a Flash.  No frozen patties that contain extra stuff you don’t want to eat.  Delicious, spicy, chewy, delicate, flavors that keep popping in your mouth – no cardboard here.  Even us meat eaters would choose this veggie burger over it’s meaty brethren.  Well most of the time; unless the meat is prime chopped, cooked rare – a discussion for a later time. No guilt associated with this burger!

Blueberry Bread Pudding will be a hit at your Holiday Brunch

Cover Plate 11-12Make this dish for your next holiday brunch!.  I promise it will be a huge hit and look how pretty it is on top of it!  Serve it with a salad and some virgin or champagne mimosas as I did and you are good.  I served this Savory Blueberry Bread Pudding with a Sweet Blueberry Sauce to about 40 people after our church service and these were the honest comments I got.

“Loved the fact that it was vegetarian and something new and different.”

“It was a surprise, because of the fact that it wasn’t sweet but tasted delicious.”

“Light, but satisfying.”

“I appreciated that the topping had the sweetness, while the bread pudding was savory and it allowed me to adjust my sweetness level.”

“It was a wonderful way to eat blueberries.” (more…)

Sweet Potato Pie at our Thanksgiving Feast

We celebrated Thanksgiving early.  The Food Bloggers of Los Angeles all got together to celebrate our third birthday with a feast fit for…well a lot of Food Bloggers.  There was no turkey, but the variety and creativity that abounds from this group always amazes me…and no surprise, the offerings were all so delicious.  I can recommend that you try these recipes yourself to add a new twist to your Thanksgiving meal. (At the bottom of this post you can link to nearly 100 Food Blogger Thanksgiving recipe ideas, so don’t miss them.)  I made a fabulous (if I do say so myself) Sweet Potato Pie and you can find the recipe at the bottom of this post.  I was testing this recipe for my Pies & Tarts Baking class that was held last Thursday.

Grilled Pizza…no oven mess and a crisp crust!

In preparation for our October 11, 2012 Pizza class, I’m thinking back to our August Garden to Table Cooking Class, when we made the most amazing pizza on the grill.  We used fresh summer vegetables, garden ripe tomatoes, arugula and fresh burrata cheese.  I found that this was a fresh new way to make pizza and not mess up your oven on top of it.

Roasted Eggplant Salsa = Indian Baingan Ka Bharta

Eggplant often gets a bad rap.  On its own, its’ not that interesting a vegetable, but loaded with spices, olive oil and other flavors, it takes on a whole other dimension.  Think of the eggplant as a sponge.  It takes on the flavors that you add to it.  I must admit that before testing this dish, I had never roasted an eggplant.  I’ve thought about the idea, but eggplant slices soaked in olive oil usually end up on my grill and served in many different ways.  That’s the end of it.  But now I think of the beautiful eggplant with its deep purple skin in a whole new way.
