Tuscan Calzone

Posted by Wine & Spice on 9/25/2015 to Italian

My family loves pizza and calzone. Now that the weather is getting a little cooler a comfort dinner is just what the doctor ordered! This is such a fun meal to prepare together as a family. The kids love this because they can choose all of their own fillings and help build their very own calzone!


In this recipe I chose to infuse the dough with some Evening in Tuscany. It adds such an amazing depth of flavor. I made the dough but you can achieve the same flavor profile if you knead the seasoning into a store bought pre-made dough. Just let the refrigerated dough warm to room temperature first.


You can make you own marinara sauce. To make this a quick and easy weeknight dinner, you can use your favorite store bought. You can kick it up a notch by adding a little Evening in Tuscany to freshen and enhance the flavor. I always serve the marinara on the side so it does not make the calzone soggy.


This is a truly easy meal to make and the calzone is a blank slate, your imagination can take it anywhere!


I hope you enjoy!

Sheet Pan Chicken Harvest Veggie Dinner

My husband and I went to the Farmers' Market this past Sunday morning. It is always so much fun to walk around and buy fresh ingredients and get inspired to try something new!

I saw a chef on a cooking show make an entire meal on a sheet pan and bake it together to create a quick and delicious dinner. This is my take on that idea. I used the MSC Citrus Sea Salt blend with this meal! So delicious!!!


Don’t be afraid to try new vegetables! I had never purchased Brussel Sprouts on the stalk before. It may look a little intimidating, but so easy. Just use a short knife to cut the “sprout” off the stalk and clean off the outer leaves.

Farmers' Markets are also the perfect place to pick up fresh herbs if you did not grow any at home! We also got the potatoes there. All so fresh. Does not get any better than that!

This time of year, we can harvest the vegetables we have taken such loving care of all summer. All of the peppers are ripe and I adore Poblano peppers. I decided to stuff the poblano and make a fabulous Mole sauce using It’s a Mad, Mad, Mole seasoning. Mole sauce is something that usually is very time consuming and complicated to make. Using Milford Spice’s Mole seasoning made this a breeze and fantastic!


I hope you enjoy!

Greek Lamb Burgers

Posted by Wine & Spice on 9/1/2015 to Beef, Pork & Lamb

We have been grilling all summer.  I adore hamburgers but wanted to kick it up a notch!  So I decided to do a Greek Lamb Burger.  I used the It’s All Greek To Me seasoning, which is truly fantastic and complex.


I chose to top the burger with an Olive Aoli, recipe included.  Also with Lena’s Quick Pickled Onions and Greek Spiced Potato Chips.  Click on the recipe names to see recipes.


This was like a flavor explosion, so good!  I hope you enjoy.
