Garden Glory Marinated Tomatoes

Posted by Wine & Spice on 8/16/2017 to Veggies!

My garden is producing a lot of tomatoes.  I love it!  I wanted to make a side dish using my Napa Grape Hybrid tomatoes.  These are so sweet and have a fabulous texture.  Soo good!



Garden Glory is a new spice blend consisting of garlic, salt, paprika, onion, black pepper, thyme, red bell pepper, molasses, oregano, serrano and vinegar.  A delicious blend for roasted or grilled veggies.  A little touch of molasses helps coax out the caramelization.  We especially like it sprinkled on roasted root veggies like sweet potatoes and onions, cauliflower. 


You can use Marinated Tomatoes in sandwiches, salads, omelets, potato salad, or as a bite by themselves.



You can use a larger tomato as well, like these Cherokee Purple.  


A chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc goes very well with this dish.

Fresh Tomato Lasagna

Posted by Wine & Spice on 8/15/2017 to Italian

I love this the of year when you are overflowing with fresh tomatoes!  Whether from the garden or Farmers' Markets…  Amazing flavors!


Today I made a fresh tomato lasagna with fresh mozzarella and ricotta.  I seasoned with Buon Appetito, this is blended by hand with Greek oregano, basil, marjoram, thyme, rosemary and sage.  A wonderful salt free blend that is terrific on just about anything…


I used a No-Boil lasagna noodle because I like how thin they are.  You can certainly use any lasagna noodle you wish, they will all work.  I soaked my pasta sheets in very hot water for about 15 minutes to allow them to soften so the dish required shorter cooking time.


The flavors of fresh tomato, cheese and Buon Appetito is sure to become one of my new favorite dishes.  Makes a great side dish or a main dish with a side salad.


A chilled glass of White Shiraz goes very well with this dish.

Cow Conditioner Skirt Steak Sandwich

Posted by Wine & Spice on 8/8/2017 to Beef, Pork & Lamb

When it is 100 degrees outside it is sometimes hard to think about cooking.  I adore a sandwich on these days.  I tried Cow Conditioner for the first time and wow! What a fantastic flavor.  Your imagination is the limit when making steak sandwiches, you can use all types of veggies and cheese combination as well as bread selections.


Cow Conditioner is hand blended from salt, brown sugar, chili powder, garlic, cumin, black pepper, yellow mustard, paprika, thyme and red pepper flakes.  It adds the perfect amount of flavor without overpowering the flavor of the meat.  A hint of heat with a little sweet.  Perfect steak blend…


A cold Swedish Lager goes very well with this dish.
