When it's too hot to cook, it's time to make gazpacho. Marinating the tomatoes before you blend them together the cucumbers, peppers, bread, and vinegar, makes for a healthy summery soup that has tons of flavor!
A simple dessert recipe combining some of our favorite flavors of Northern Italy. Made with broiled fruit, rosemary-infused honey, whipped Mascarpone cheese, and crumbled amaretti cookies, it's so easy to make but so flavorful!
This salad is a total winner with crisp butter lettuce, ripe tomatoes, toasted breadcrumbs, lots of herbs, and crumbly sweet blue cheese. Serve it as a side salad or top it with grilled salmon or chicken for a main dish.
I wish I knew about this salad so long ago. It's inspired by a salad I found at M Cafe de Chaya that's a bit fancier – with tempeh bacon, beets, and a vegan "Ranch" dressing. But, after spending way more than I should ever be spending on salads, I decided to make my own version.
So, a lot of people think of Southern California and think all we eat are smoothies, juices, and salads. These days there's much more going on in SoCal when it comes to food but, it's true, we'll always go for a good smoothie. One of my favorite places to get a smoothie is at Backyard Bowls where everything is fresh and flavorful but never too sweet. I like the Tropical Ginger Smoothie so much that I decided to make my own version here!
