Broiled Caprese Salad

Broiled Caprese Salad from PasstheSushi.com

They aren’t all pretty. They aren’t all supposed to be. Mom’s tuna noodle casserole isn’t photogenic, but sometimes it hits the spot. Same for meatloaf. Yeah, try to gussy that up for a great food photography shot without using some hairspray. Other wise, it’s a brown lump of meat with some red smeared on top. But damn, it’s delicious. This Caprese salad did not turn out catwalk ready like I had envisioned it. But that doesn’t matter because it was amazing. I even ate tomatoes. Strait up. And didn’t try to pick around them (mainly because it was darned impossible). So serve this simple […]

Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken Burgers

It’s amazing how our small corners of the internet begin to become our own little space. That in passing, people that have never met, will spot something and will recognize it as a particular bloggers without even needing to see it on their site. I have spotted pins – and I’m not even talking food – and known who pinned it without checking. There are even times I spot tiny thumbnails on food sites and know who the evil mastermind is. Yeah, we’re just one big happy family.   It should really come as no shock to me that my […]

Pesto Burgers

  You all know I love me some burgers. I mean love. It’s  a little awkward sometimes as I choose to ignore the man across from me at the table and rather stare longingly at the juicy grilled delight in front of me. Sorry boys, but you  don’t stand a chance. Fortunately for me, I have a man who doesn’t question my bizarre love of foods. When I saw these burgers over at Hot Polka Dot(seriously, how cute is that blog!) I was so excited. I’ve also had an unnatural addiction to basil this summer (perhaps its from the three […]

In a pinch appetizer: Caprese Sticks

Remember those chain emails that asked you a billion questions so your friends could get to know you better? Yeah, after the 900th time I had to answer that my favorite color was red, I gave up. Filing those emails in spam every time I got one and begged my friends to stop. We were in junior high school, I’m sure that had something to do with why these were so fun for a while. In the blogging world, I see similar things spread like wildfire and often don’t participate, haunted by the memory of those emails. But I have […]

Grilled Everything Pizza

  I may have a new obsession this summer and it took me by surprise. Normally I get excited at the smell of smouldering charcoals and start to anticipate burgers, steaks, chops and other hearty meaty goodness – but this year I grilled my first pizza and there is no going back. I may love my pizza stone but once I clumsily laid that first dough on the grate my opinion was changed forever. Sure, dinner takes a little planning ahead so that you have time to prep your dough and let it rise, but once that’s done, everything comes […]

Panko Mozzarella Sticks

I saw this recipe a while ago while cruising food sites and knew I had to try it. I love mozzarella sticks – especially the horrible ones they serve at the bowling ally. The problem was, when to make it? Talking myself into actually making the deep fried cheesy delight was a hard one. It was totally worth it though.   Add this to the favorites tab because your going to love it.   Panko Mozzarella Sticks Adapted from http://une-deuxsenses.blogspot.com Ingredients: 16 pieces string cheese, removed from wrappers 1/2 cup flour 2 eggs 3 tbs milk 2 cups panko bread […]
