Foodie Friday: Strawberry-Basil Meringue

I recently made Lemon Balm-Blackberry Meringue and they are fantastic, like biting into a cloud but I wanted to try some other flavor combinations. I have a couple of basil plants growing like crazy and decided that the next version to try was Strawberry-Basil. The flavors go great together already and were wonderful combined in

Foodie Friday: Micro-Green Omelet

Last week I looked at using micro-greens in pesto. But they are quite tasty in a number of other things too – one of those being omelets. I will admit that this recipe was partly inspired by the fact that I bought two-dozen eggs at the farmer’s market. We aren’t vegan or vegetarian but we

Foodie Friday: Micro-Green Pesto

Pesto is always a great summer sauce, light and flavorful and full of greens. I’ve posted other fun pesto recipes on my blog in the past such as Arugula-Lavender and Mint-Arugula. But I started out making a slightly more traditional pesto with basil when I first started making pesto. I fell in love with the

Foodie Friday: Bacon-Cheese Cornbread Muffins

Foodie Friday: Arugula-Lavender Pesto

I’m ready for spring. This has been a rather long, chilly winter. So I decided to bring a little bit of spring inspired cooking into my kitchen. I love pesto and am slowly working to create some different ones. Last year I made a Mint-Arugula version with hazelnuts. This one though is probably one of

Foodie Friday: Taste of Tuscany Cooking Class

I took a second cooking class at Sur La Table last weekend and this time I convinced Keltin to go with me. The menu was Herb Crusted Tenderloin with White Bean and Wild Mushroom Ragout paired with Roasted Broccolini with Lemon and Toasted Garlic Breadcrumbs. For dessert we made Poached Pears with Prosecco Zabaglione. The
