There’s a wonderful restaurant in San Francisco where folks come from far away lands to enjoy the classics …Caesar Salad, Roast Chicken with Warm Bread Salad and the most amazing House-Ground Grass-Fed Hamburger on Grilled Rosemary Foccacia served with Zuni Pickles.
Squash blossoms. Those glorious golden blooms. Not only beautiful but delicious, too. Those edible flowers should be available to us this time of year …thanks to the summer squash and zucchini plants.
Peaches & blueberries. Topped with crispy buttery crumble. It doesn’t get much better. But wait …top that off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Now you’ve got my attention.
Calling all kids!! Big kids included …but really, calling all kids! Here’s a miniature version of that big ole’ corn dog that we all remember. And they’re gluten-free!
Grilled bread + fig spread + cheese + prosciutto + grilled pear = scrumptious. This combination is seriously addictive. You’ll see.
White pizza at its best. The crust is hearty and crisp. The fresh mozzarella and roasted potatoes combine to create the melt-in-your-mouth base with no need for a creamy base sauce. The final topping of the slightly bitter broccoli rabe creates the perfect balance.
Make these at home. You’ll feel like you’re visiting your favorite coffee shop. Only you’ll be enjoying them at your favorite table …in your own kitchen.
This may seem like a basic dish …not too complicated. More of a guideline or suggestion, rather than a true recipe. But, I’m here to tell you that it is the number one requested contribution for our family celebrations. It never fails to please the crowd.
Let’s continue the gluten-free celebration. I have a few – four to be exact – dark chocolate cookies left from yesterday’s batch. They just happen to be perfectly round and flat …just the right size and texture to hold some ice cream. The cookie recipe can be found here.
This surprised me …these amazing cookies that came to life in my oven. In the past, when I would see the phrase “gluten-free” on a package or label, I would just continue on my way. Can’t be so good, right? Turns out I was mistaken.
They tell you they don’t want dessert. Everyone is just too full. Wait til you see what happens when you bring out a tray of these guys. Most will change their mind. Especially if you add some fresh whipped cream to the mix. Or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
You’ve seen brick chicken on the menu. You may even wonder what that is. Wonder no more. No fancy gadgets needed …just a brick and a cast iron skillet.
