A trip to visit family is always an adventure.  Last week we flew to Minneapolis to celebrate my mother’s birthday on 9-11. The security at the airport was quite impressive. It seemed like there was one TSA person for every passenger passing through the newfangled X-ray machines.  Ever since that horrible morning we experienced ten years ago, my mother’s birthday has been eclipsed by other events that all of us are passionate about.  But for her day this year, we turned off the never ending stream of media reports and had some fun.

Barbecue Pork Sliders = Summer Cooking Class hit

I’ve been in lazy summer vacation mode during the month of July.  Following the Summer Entertaining Cooking Class on July 7, I took off for a few chilly days in San Francisco and then a few warm days sailing to Catalina Island.  Isn’t summer great?  Now I’m longing for some of the dishes we created at the Summer Entertaining Cooking class on lucky 7-7-11 like the Quick Barbecue Pork Sliders.   I plan to recreate these at a friend’s backyard barbecue next weekend.     I’ve been reviewing the photos from our cooking class and as always the teams pulled together an amazing and delicious meal for all of us.

Here’s a window into what we made – Border Grill’s Peruvian Ceviche with Pickled Red Onions made by the mother and daughter team, Gerry & Christine.  Umm-ummm!   I had tasted this twice at the restaurant and kept dreaming about it.  Now I can’t wait to make this dish again.  We used Pacific flounder from the Westchester Farmer’s Market, which Tropical Seafoods confirms is a sustainable fish.

Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger of Border Grill, who lent me their recipe for our cooking class, have been big supporters of making sure we don’t deplete our ocean’s fish and suggest that you visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s http://www.seafoodwatch.org/ right on their recipe. (more…)
