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 with Crispy Rice Cakes and Smoky Date “Not Ketchup”.

The day after our “A Taste of Asia” cooking class, I looked in the refrigerator.   I had some leftover Asian sticky rice staring me in the face.  I had a bottle of Smoky Date “Not Ketchup”.  My sweetie had brought home a piece of salmon shrink wrapped on the recognizable white foam tray.   Hmmm.  What to make for dinner?  You know the feeling, I’m sure.   Well out of nowhere, inspiration hit and look what I created.  (more…)

New England Clam Chowder

Who doesn’t love a good New England Clam Chowder. Creamy.  Salty, from the sea. Smooth, with chunks of meaty clams and the surprise as you bite into America’s favorite vegetable, the lowly potato. (more…)

Avocado Grove Tour inspires Crab & Avocado Salad

Crab and Avocado Salad

Crab and Avocado Salad

The Crab and Avocado Salad is destined for my rotating repertoire and a menu item for one of my upcoming cooking classes. In this dish, the creaminess of the avocado matches so well with the crunch of the raw cabbage and persian cucumber slices. The garlicky mayo blend pulls together the exotic and delicate taste of the crab.  Yum!  I’m in love…with this dish. (more…)

Glazed Butterfly Shrimp for an Elegant Valentine Dinner Party

Glazed Butterfly Shrimp Cover 2-13Here’s an elegant recipe to serve your Valentine or the loves in your life at your next dinner party.  The Glazed Butterfly Shrimp is so easy to make and unbelievably delicious, you may be preparing an elegant meal a lot more often for your sweethearts…and that is not a bad thing!  I developed this delicious Glazed Butterfly Shrimp recipe because I had some Southern Comfort in the cupboard and wondered what I could make with it.  Southern Comfort is a sweetened spirit, so feel free to try other liquors or liqueurs with a little sweetness in its place.  Your guests will love this dish.  The butterflied shrimp are elegant on the plate, lined up with their tails all facing the same way to one side of the rice timbale.  The glaze on the shrimp is sweet, sticky, creamy and heavenly.  After you take the shrimp out of the skillet, you can add in some more milk or cream to round up the remaining sauce and ladle it around the plate.
