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!

Yam and Carrot Latkes topped with Peanut Sauce

Since it’s Hanukkah, I’ve been seeing a lot of latkes on the blogs and in the news.  I was going to a holiday party at a friend’s house, so I decided I would use the yams, carrots, red onion and cilantro I had in my refrigerator to make some latkes for the party. (more…)

Fiji Water

Fiji Water

Is there a difference between bottled water and Los Angeles city water?   Fiji Water asked me to develop some simple recipes that would answer this question at Camp Blogaway, a weekend camp for Food Bloggers that I attended a week ago in the Big Bear mountains near Los Angeles.  The Fiji Water Taste Challenge was on and we had nearly 100 self-proclaimed foodies to do the tasting!  (more…)
