Grilled Portobello Mushrooms + BBQ Link Party

Monday, July 9th, 2012

We had a great weekend, did you?  We invited some friends over, fired up the barbeque, made a lot of good eats, shared some wine and talked until it was late – the very best kind of summer evening.

One of my favorite appetizers to make in the summer are these cheesy, tasty wonderful grilled portobello (or ‘portabella’) mushrooms.  They’ve got everything inside: protein, vegetables, and a little bit of carbs.  Mini meals all wrapped up in one delicious package!

Tropical Summer Sangria

Friday, June 1st, 2012

Happy happy weekend everyone!  We had some friends over last night and I whipped up a batch of tropical summertime sangria.  I’ve been craving pineapple lately so I had to include it in the medley with some diced fresh nectarines and mango too!  It’s easy to make and guaranteed to please, and I say it totally counts for a daily serving of fruit.

Fish Tacos with Chipotle Lime Cilantro Slaw

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

When I travel and eat something supremely delicious I can’t help but try to recreate a version at home.  Last weekend I was in Southern Cali and tasted some of the most delicious fish tacos I’ve ever had at BJ’s Restaurant.  The fish inside was grilled (not deep fried) and topped with copious amounts of a cabbage slaw dressed in the tastiest sauce, and yet it still felt light and healthy.  I made it my mission to make a similar version at home.
