Lemon Risotto


I wanted to make a side dish that made my Blackened Prawns sing.  What complements Prawns better than a Lemon Risotto!  Creamy, lemony, luscious risotto!

I seasoned this risotto with our Citrus Sea Salt.  This is hand blended from smoked sea salt, ginger, lemon, lime and orange zest, and a hint of black pepper.  It is incredible on green beans, fresh or roasted tomatoes and asparagus.  Also great on fish and chicken.   We love to squeeze a little fresh lemon, lime or orange juice first and then add the salt.

While this dish takes a little time, it is really easy and well worth the effort.

Any ice cold Italian Moscato works great with this dish.

Moroccan Couscous Salad with Spring Vegetables

Recipe courtesy of Marie Kelly, Milford Kitchen.

This fantastic salad with couscous and spring vegetables was created by Marie Kelly from Milford Kitchen. The recipe uses asparagus and spring onions which are excellent this time of year. The chickpeas (a.k.a. garbanzo beans or chi-chi beans) complement this healthy salad with their crunchy goodness and are also high in fiber and protein.


The dressing is seasoned with Moroccan Vegetable Rub from Milford Spice Company. This spice blend is blended from cumin, coriander, chili powder, smoked sweet paprika, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, cayenne and cloves. It will add a delicious pop of flavor to the salad.

Shredded Potato Kugel Casserole


I have always loved egg noodle kugel.  My friends describing passover to me told me that that you can do something similar using shredded potatoes.  It has the same taste profile as a latke but in a casserole form.


It turned out really well!  DiDad’s Passion for Pepper is a fabulous hand blended mix of black pepper, granulated onion, granulated garlic, celery seed and sweet bell pepper.  This is wonderful on just about anything!


A glass of Pinot Noir paired very well with his meal.

Dillicious Potatoes Anna


Dillicious is a bright and flavorful blend of onion, garlic, salt, parsley, black pepper and dill weed. Fantastic on veggies, fish, chicken or as a dip and salad dressing. See the product info on website for a great ranch dressing recipe!


This potato dish is great with anything that you would serve potatoes with. It is crispy and crunchy on the outside, soft and wonderful on the inside. I served with Sous Vide Lamb Chops and Asparagus.


I highly recommend using a cast iron skillet for this dish. The heat generated creates such a wonderful crust! You can use a large one or a couple (or more) small ones. It is kind of fun for everyone to get a mini Pommes Anna each!


A lovely glass of Petite Sirah pairs beautifully with this dish.

Pepperoni Bread with Dipping Sauce

Recipe courtesy of Pat Bafile, P. B. Photo/Graphics.

This bread I grew up with as a kid and it is great. This is not re-purposed pizza dough. Use bread dough for the right feel. It's really popular in West Virginia where they sell it everywhere as pepperoni rolls.
The Dipping Sauce can be used for sauce on pizza as well.

Arborio Rice Dressing

Recipe courtesy of Pat Bafile, P. B. Photo/Graphics.

This recipe is my mom's Rice Dressing and it's a great side dish. She would make a strong tasting homemade Chicken Broth for this recipe. There is lots of chicken fat that adds a smooth richness to this dish. I changed the rice from a standard rice to Arborio. It is great with Baked Chicken or Pork Roast. You can use the leftover rice by making rice balls or patties with Panko bread crumbs the next day.

Israeli Chopped Salad



Mediterranean food always tastes so fresh and healthy! This chopped salad is no exception. Luscious cucumber, tomato, red onion, feta cheese, parsley mixed with Zahtar, lemon juice and olive oil. So delicious. My kiddos adore this. Great for a quick meal on its own or serve with Sumac-Sheet Pan Chicken.


Zahtar is a middle-eastern/mediterranean spice mix that is hand blended from sesame seeds, coriander, sumac, thyme, cumin and black pepper. This is fantastic on chicken, fish, vegetables, bread and dips (mix with Feta cheese and olive oil for a great dip with pita chips).


We enjoyed a cold glass of chablis with this salad.

Instant Pot Baked Beans


The Instant Pot has to be one of the greatest inventions ever! I was always leery of using the old fashioned pressure cookers, this new one is so easy! Baked Beans is a family favorite, and I wanted to try making it in the new pot. The end results were better than I could have imagined!


Of course it didn’t hurt to use a newer spice blend from MSC called Louisiana Red Beans & Rice. This is hand blended using onion, garlic, parsley, celery, cumin, cayenne, bay leaf and red pepper flakes. Also great on sautéed cauliflower rice, black soy beans and as a salad dressing.


We are eating healthier, so I chose a nitrate/nitrite free uncured bacon for this dish. Or you can choose a vegan/keto option as well.


A ice cold beer is a perfect compliment to this dish.

Baked Italian Rice


Johnny Pizza is another spice blend that is extremely versatile. It is hand blended with Mediterranean oregano, basil, garlic, onion, thyme, fennel seed, red bell pepper, crushed red pepper, parsley and marjoram. It is great to sprinkle on a pre-made pizza, fantastic in a sauce, or my personal favorite—bake it into a homemade pizza crust. So good!


Today I decided to make an Italian Baked Rice. Added lots of veggies, this is so easy and very flavorful. I served this with a Baked Chicken also seasoned with Johnny Pizza and finished with some fresh mozzarella cheese.


A glass of Chianti was delightful with this meal.

Roasted Garden Glory Cauliflower Steaks


It seems that anything Cauliflower these days is in vogue! Low carb, low calorie and very nutritious not to mention great flavor and texture. What's not to love?


I've been wanting to try cauliflower steaks for quite a while. One of the the newer spice blends that I've purchased is Garden Glory. There is a touch of molasses which helps coax out the carmelization. It is hand blended from garlic, salt, paprika, onion, black pepper, thyme, red bell pepper, molasses, oregano, serrano and vinegar. It is fantastic on roasted root veggies like sweet potatoes and onions. This also makes a great vinaigrette! Click here for more info on that.


This recipe could not be any easier! You can also try grilling these!


A glass of Chardonnay went very well with this meal.

Black Bean & Corn Salad



This is great side dish to go with just about any southwestern dish.  It is a salsa/salad.  You can use it to top a dish as a salsa, or serve as a salad on the side.  It stores well in fridge so it lasts for several days.  You can add tomatoes, but then it would be best eaten right away.  Tomatoes deteriorate very rapidly in fridge, refrigeration damages the membranes in the tomato and causes it to taste gritty and mealy.


Taco Tuesday is such a wonderful blend of chili powder, domestic paprika, granulated onion, cumin, granulated garlic, Mexican oregano, brown sugar, black pepper medium, and cayenne pepper.  It is fantastic in just about any southeastern recipe.


A glass of chilled Chardonnay is great with this meal.


I used some leftover Black Bean & Corn Salad to top a plate of Nacho's for lunch the next day.  So yummy!

Ravensview Parmesan Potato Stacks


Potatoes are a great side dish, but they can get a little boring.  Here is a flavorful and fun new take on individual servings of baked potato stacks.  The caramelized crunch of this side dish makes it a perfect pairing with a steak.


I used Ravensview Rosemary Garlic to complement my potatoes.  This is hand blended with sea salt, black pepper, garlic, onion, chives and rosemary.  Perfect for potatoes, amazing on lamb and other meats.


Enjoy!

Cauliflower Mushroom Risotto with Shrimp


Eating healthier in the new year! Trying some new things to lighten up some of our favorite dishes. Cauliflower is surprisingly similar in texture to rice and can be substituted for this usually high carb side. Today I made a “risotto” by pulsing the cauliflower in food processor, then sauteéing and adding mushrooms, chicken broth and parmesan/romano cheese. Very flavorful and satisfying. Even my uber-picky hubby loved it.


I used one of my absolute favorite spice blends—An Evening in Tuscany. This amazingly flavorful blend is hand blended from garlic, Kosher salt, Mediterranean oregano, basil, crushed red pepper, black pepper, rosemary, onion and parsley. Fantastic on just about anything.


I paired this wonderful risotto with some easy baked jumbo shrimp—low calorie and waist friendly.


Hope you enjoy!

Scalloped Mexican Potatoes



Today I wanted to try something new and different. Potatoes can be a little bland so I kicked it up a notch! I used Milford's Mexican Blast to season the potatoes that added such an amazing favor. Mexican Blast is a delicious blend of chile peppers, garlic, onion, cumin, Mexican oregano and other spices.


Adding the poblano peppers made the dish colorful and taste fantastic! Mexican Crema is available at regular grocery stores and is richer that regular cream.


I paired this with Grilled Mexican Blast Carne Asada. Really delicious!

Baked Mexican Rice



Perfect rice every time!  So easy!


I consider myself a fairly decent cook but one thing that is so hard for me to cook perfectly is rice!  I do not know why that is?  Even with a rice cooker 9 out 10 times the texture is not what I want...


I read about baking the rice instead and so I gave it a shot.  It is amazingly easy and turns out perfect every time.  You can use chicken broth, beef broth, veggie broth, tomato juice or other cooking liquid to flavor your rice.  Today I used Taco Tuesday and a can of Rotel Tomatoes to flavor my rice.  You can use almost any spice blend as a great base for flavors, your imagination is the limit!


Taco Tuesday is a very versatile blend of chili powder, domestic paprika, granulated onion, cumin, granulated garlic, Mexican oregano, brown sugar, black pepper medium, and cayenne pepper.  Great for Tacos, Soups, Grilling and so much more… 


Yummy!
