Pacific Rim Chicken Meatballs

It seems like forever since I have been in my kitchen or behind my camera. Let’s say that the Holiday season was not so jolly at our house. Sinus infection, stomach flu (Christmas Day), abscessed tooth, root canal. UGH!!

It seems that 2019 will be the year for Pacific Rim food. Researching trends is a part of keeping things fresh in my world. Continue reading “Pacific Rim Chicken Meatballs”

Caprese Style Broiled Feta

At this time of year friends and family are bound to stop by for an impromptu visit. Those of us who cook feel the need to feed. Keeping cheese on hand can take the stress out of those last minute visits.

In the summer we like nothing better than a bruschetta style snack — garden fresh tomatoes and cheese with crackers or baguettes. But alas it winter and tomatoes are not in season. Never fear grape or cherry tomatoes, especially those on the vine are still sweet and delicious. I have found that purchasing them on the vine gives them a longer shelf life and remember DO NOT put tomatoes in the refrigerator it makes tomatoes grainy and yucky!
