16-Spice Chicken

16-Spice Chicken

This 16-Spice Chicken from Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill Cookbook is unbelievably good. You’ll want to be grilling all summer with this spice blend once you taste it.  Mix up the blend, place it in a spice jar and you’ll have enough for most of the summer, making dinner a cinch on those long hot nights.  Perfect for pot-luck barbecues too.

Kamut – an ancient grain for modern times

With all the focus on gluten free, why not switch up the grains in your diet and add a healthy wheat grain – Kamut. While it has gluten, it may actually be healthier for those without celiac disease. And it’s delicious! We used this grain to make the side dish at our Spring Entertaining cooking class. It’s pretty enough for company and it’s not the same boring rice side dish you may have made zillions of times. Another plus is that it holds up well when made a day in advance, saving you more time on party day.

Fig Balsamic Drizzle tops 15-minute Salmon.

Salmon with Balsamic & Pesto Drizzles.

Making a syrupy balsamic vinegar has been on my to-do list for awhile.  When planning our April Spring Entertaining class, I wanted to take something simple and make it grand, so dressing up this super simple salmon dish with balsamic and pesto drizzles seemed like a great way to show off for company.  But the balsamic I had purchased just wasn’t syrupy enough, even the $20 bottle of Fig Balsamic I bought at the Olive A’Sudden store on my last visit to Palm Springs.  While it tasted heavenly, I was going to have to reduce it to the consistency I was looking for.

Salmon Bruschetta tops Olive Garden new menu.

The Olive Garden’s Salmon Bruschetta

My family enjoys going to the Olive Garden Restaurant, so when I am in Minneapolis to visit them, we often go for the unlimited Soup, Salad & Breadsticks.  For $8.49*, this is a bargain.  A garden-fresh salad served family style along with a choice of four homemade soups.  You can try all four of them if you want to. “The Zuppa Toscana with sausage and kale is probably my favorite, but the Pasta e Fagioli, Minestrone and Chicken & Gnocchi are all pretty darned good,” she says with midwestern flare.

Cassolita: Moroccan Butternut Squash with Caramelized Onions

Cassolita: Moroccan Squash with Caramelized Onions

Sometimes cooking a dish sends me into another orbit – in this case, Morocco.  I find myself wanting more experiences from this cuisine.  This was the case with Cassolita, a Moroccan Butternut Squash with Caramelized Onions from Paula Wolfert’s “The Food of Morocco” cookbook, which was featured in our Meals in Minutes cooking class last month. The combination of the ingredients are so wonderful together. The sweet caramelized onions together with the nutty roasted butternut squash and the exotic Ceylon cinnamon make it really special. (more…)
