Seared Ahi Tuna with Wasabi Gremolata


Seared Ahi Tuna is one of the most delectable dishes you can eat. It practically melts in your mouth. Of course I could eat this completely raw. If you are not a sushi fan, you can cook to your liking. I chose to use Big Easy Bourbon Molasses because of its smoky sweet heat. Hand blended with granulated blackstrap molasses, demerara sugar, orange zest, bourbon barrel smoked sea salt, garlic, onion, chipotle, paprika and bell pepper. Amazing on fish, chicken and pork!


I found this wonderful Wasabi Arugula at the farmers market. I have never heard of this variety. It tastes just like the wasabi you get at a sushi restaurant but without the heat! Fantastic.



A gremolata is the perfect accompaniment to use the Arugula in, it adds a nice texture to this dish. This version does not have any cheese typically found in this type of recipe. You can add parmesan cheese, parsley and garlic and use it to top a pasta. Delish!


I made sushi rice as a side for this meal—1 cup of short grain white rice, rinsed really well and 2 cups water. Cook per directions and then add 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar, 2 tsp sugar and 1/2 tsp salt that you have mixed together. Stir and you are ready to go!


A chilled glass of Pinot Noir paired perfectly with this meal.


Wine and Spice makes everything nice!

Chicken Soup with Bisquick Dumplings



This is another quick and easy recipe using ingredients most of us have in the pantry and fridge.  This soup is super simple, and another recipe that the kiddos can help cook.


You can pretty much use whatever veggies you have on hand.  For this I used carrots, potatoes, onion and celery.  You could also use sweet potatoes, broccoli, zucchini, squash, rutabaga, to name a few.


Today I used Adobo Lime to season the soup.  This fabulous seasoning is hand blended from fennel seed, cumin, coriander, black pepper, garlic, Mexican oregano, lime zest, kosher salt, thyme and rosemary.  It is truly wonderful on just about everything from fish, shrimp, chicken, pork, beef and vegetables.  One of Milford Spice Company's  best sellers at Farmer’s Markets and a customer favorite!  If you do not have Adobo Lime, chicken soup is very much a blank canvas, try with your favorite Milford Spice Blend.  No matter what you use. it will de delicious!


You can use a boxed stock/broth or you can simmer you chicken in water to cook and use that as y our stock.


Bisquick is used to create these fantastic dumplings.  This soup is perfect for a chilly night….

Chimichurri Sauce


We have had a streak of ridiculously hot weather lately. A Chimichurri Sauce is an Argentinian herb sauce that can be served with steak, fish, chicken or pork. It is also fabulous served over roasted or grilled veggies for our Keto/Vegan friends.


I used Red Pepper flakes to add a little heat to this sauce. Depending on what herbs you have growing in your garden, you can add a little thyme, oregano, basil or rosemary. You can season this fabulously easy sauce with Adobo LimePerfect Chili, Mexican Blast, and if you switch out cilantro with basil use An Evening in Tuscany!


I served this with an Adobo Lime seasoned skirt steak with Perfect Chili Oven Roasted Potatoes. Click links to see these recipes.


A nice iced cold Corona Light with Lime pairs really well with this dish.

Everything Better Smoked Salmon Flatbread


It has been ridiculously hot in my neck of the woods, almost 100 for weeks! As someone who loves to cook I was trying to be creative for a fun and delicious cool meal, yet not too filling! My family loves lox and bagels, so this is a play on that breakfast favorite.


This would be fantastic on a brunch table as it is amazing at room temperature, or as a light lunch or dinner.


I bought a blend called Everything Better. Wow, so good! This is made by hand blending delicious California grown and roasted garlic, onion, poppy seed, both white and black sesame seeds and kosher salt. Really tastes just like a bagel. This blend is great sprinkled on chicken, avocado toast, eggs, veggies and salads.


A chilled Mimosa would be a perfect match for this dish.

Bean Salad with Honey Chipotle Vinaigrette


My girls asked me to come up with something filling and healthy they could have for lunch and snack on after school. A bean salad is the perfect quick and easy meal. Protein, lots of veggies with a tangy delicious vinaigrette. It lasts in the refrigerator for almost a week, just stir before serving.


I did a three bean combo and you can use any combination of beans that appeals to you. Same with the veggie combo that you choose. I did a Southwestern spin on this using Honey Chipotle in the vinaigrette. Honey Chipotle is one of our favorite blends. It is hand blended using granulated honey, sea salt, chipotle powder, granulated onion, Spanish paprika and Italian seasoning. The combination of smokey sweet heat is amazing on salmon, shrimp, chicken, veggies and more.


Make your own version of bean salad using the beans and veggies of your choice with any spice blend that sounds good to you. See this handy chart to make your own vinaigrette.

Chicken & Mushroom Casserole


This is super easy dinner that will bring everyone to the table for some family time. Very little prep and clean up. Great for the kiddos to help. Play a game before dinner while this fabulous casserole wets the appetite for the whole family.


Cream of Mushroom soup is very versatile and is a great item to keep in the pantry for a quick sauce. I used Buon Appetito which is a balanced mix of Greek oregano, basil, marjoram, thyme, rosemary and sage. It really enhances the flavors of tomato sauces, fish, poultry, meat, and salad dressings. Truly a great addition to almost anything.

You can pretty much use any hardy veggies you have on hand. I used cauliflower, carrots, red onion and mushrooms. Some other great veggies are potatoes, sweet potatoes, broccoli, squash, bell pepper, poblano or jalapeño peppers to name a few.


You can cook on one or two sheet pans. I wanted a ton of veggies so I used two.

Bisquick Apple Dessert




I was recently challenged to come up with some simple recipes to help bring families back around the dinner table.  As we will be sharing these ideas with a local food pantry, we want to keep the ingredients simple and those that you would most likely find in your own pantry, or those that are easy to obtain on a modest budget.  


Something that the Food Pantry has in abundance right now is fresh apples and Bisquick baking mix.  This is a delicious, quick and simple dessert that the kiddos would have a blast to help make.


I used New Hudson Apple Pie Spice mix for this recipe.  This is hand blended with Korintje cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, ginger root and cardamom.  Sooo yummy!  Great in your coffee too!

Heirloom Tomato Tart


I love going to the Farmers Market! It is so much fun to walk around and see what is new and what I must try. Today I decided that tomatos are my must have. Todd from Todd’s Heirloom Tomatoes is a tomato aficionado! He and his wife Tonya are delightful and full of knowledge. Their tomatoes (and other produce) are the top of the line quality and just amazing flavor. I visited them at the Parker Sunday Market on Main Street.






I am making a Tomato Ricotta Tart. This a simple but oh so tasty dish. Because there are so few ingredients, the quality of these ingredients are imperative. Please get the best you can possibly find and you will not be sorry. Use a full fat Ricotta, imported from Italy if you can find. My beautiful friend Stephanie (she is Italian) went on a luxury Italian cruise this summer, lucky girl! She was spoiled with the local ricotta and went on a quest to find a similar quality product here. Her verdict is Trader Joes! Check it out if you have one locally.


I used Buon Appetito, a salt-free balanced mix of Greek oregano, basil, marjoram, thyme, rosemary and sage. This is wonderful in any Italian dish.


Hope you have fun adventuring at your local Markets!


A glass of Champagne pairs beautifully with this dish.

Greek Salad with Grilled Veal



I have absolutely fallen in love with the Mediterranean Blend! 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 use equal amounts of oil to vinegar. For this recipe I used 1/3 cup olive oil and a 1/3 cup lemon white balsamic vinegar with 1 tbsp Mediterranean Blend. 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 night's supper. The veal/chicken can be grilled outside or 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!

My kids have been begging me to make Chicken Lettuce Wraps, we love this at P.F. Changs. This is my version of that dish. Depending on your love of spicy, use more or less of the sriracha sauce.
