Taquitos with Fresh Roasted Salsa

Posted by Wine & Spice on 6/29/2016 to Chicken & Poultry


I know that I am repeating myself, but I LOVE MEXICAN FLAVORS!!!  The fresh roasted salsa is made with Taco Tuesday and literally sings in your mouth.  So flavorful!  Taco Tuesday is hand blended from chili powder, domestic paprika, granulated onion, cumin, granulated garlic, Mexican oregano, brown sugar, black pepper medium, and cayenne pepper.


I rarely will fry anything.  But I was in the mood for something crispy.  If you make sure that your oil is nice and hot, the food you are frying will absorb less oil.  Also make sure that you heat up (in a microwave or skillet) the corn tortillas before you try to roll them.  Otherwise, they will crack and fall apart.  You will need two long kabob or bamboo skewers to hold the taquito’s while frying.


An ice cold Corona Light with lime paired perfectly with this meal.

Chipotle Grilled Shrimp Salad

Posted by Wine & Spice on 6/5/2016 to Grilling Fun!

What is there not to love about Honey Chipotle!  It has a little sweet and a little heat, I use this on just about everything.  The flavor is so fantastic, natural honey marries beautifully with the smoky heat of the chipotle for a combination you can't beat on fish, chicken, veggies! Hand blended from granulated honey, sea salt, chipotle powder, granulated onion, Spanish paprika and Italian seasoning.


This salad is so refreshing and perfect for a light meal on a hot summer night.  The shrimp can be grilled outside or inside in a grill pan.


A glass of chilled Sauvignon Blanc paired very nicely with this salad!

Pork Chops with Ravensview Strawberry Sauce

Posted by Wine & Spice on 6/5/2016 to Sauces


Strawberry season is here!  I wanted to make a savory dish with these luscious berries, pork and fruit together are made in heaven.  I decided to make a savory strawberry sauce with Ravensview Rosemary Garlic.  This is hand blended with sea salt, black pepper, garlic, onion, and rosemary. It is a real winner for lamb and other red meats. Great on beef ribs and roasts.  And as it turns out, great in a berry sauce too!


I had a box of King Arthur’s Potato Pancake mix, and thought this would be a great time to try.  Pork, potato and fruit, classic!  I added 4 tbsp chopped onion, 1 chopped jalapeño to this potato mixture as well as 1 tsp Ravensview Rosemary Garlic.  Very tasty!


This is super easy to make, and I was told by my neighbor that tasted this dish, that this meal is a real contest winner!


A glass or Shiraz went very well with this dish.

Greek Salad with Grilled Veal

Posted by Wine & Spice on 6/4/2016 to Beef, Pork & Lamb


I have absolutely fallen in love with the Mediterranean Rub!  I adore the fresh flavors of the region.  This is the essence of the Mediterranean with herbs, spices and citrus. This blend is great for chicken, fish, pork and beef as a rub. Take your fresh veggies and sprinkle this blend for a full range of flavors. It is a great table condiment without the salt and sugar. Hand blended from thyme, oregano, sage, basil, rosemary, garlic, lemon peel and black pepper.


I made a vinaigrette and seasoned the veal with this rub.  You can substitute veal with chicken and it would still be great.  With almost any spice blend you can make a vinaigrette.  Just us equal amounts of oil to vinegar, I for this recipe 1/3 cup olive oil and a 1/3 cup lemon white balsamic vinegar with 1 tbsp Mediterranean Rub.  Let it sit to soften the dried herbs and enjoy!


This is a really easy meal to make and is so light and flavorful.  Perfect for a summer nights supper.  The veal/chicken can be grilled outside or as I did in a grill pan inside.


I also made a really quick garlic flatbread instead of croutons.  Yummy!


A glass of chilled Chardonnay paired very nicely with this salad!
