Cauliflower Mushroom Risotto


I love substituting cauliflower for many different starches. Today I decided to try my hand at a risotto using Johnny Pizza. This flavorful mix is hand blended with Mediterranean oregano, basil, garlic, onion, thyme, fennel seed, red bell pepper, crushed red pepper, parsley and marjoram. Fabulous as an Italian blend or amazing in your pizza sauce or my favorite—bake it into the crust! You can also use it to add pizzaz to a frozen pizza.


You can vary this recipe to accommodate any diet. I used parmesan cheese but you can use brewers yeast just as well. If you are using real cheese make sure you get a chunk of parmesan and freshly shred for the recipe, it makes all the difference!


This risotto is so rich and creamy! You will not miss the rice.


A nice glass of Chianti Classico tasted fabulous with this dish.

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.

Baked Zucchini Coins


Who doesn’t adore the bounty towards the end of summer? Zucchini has been plentiful and delicious. I tried something similar to this recipe at a restaurant years ago and thought it would be fun to replicate.


Today I used Louisiana Red Beans & Rice, this is hand blended from onion, garlic, parsley, celery, cumin, cayenne, bay leaf and red pepper flakes. The name is deceiving as you can use this very versatile blend in just about anything! It is a bit smokey with just a hint of heat and is great in anything from beans (check out Instant Pot Baked Beans) to salad dressing.


This is great as an appetizer on warm summer nights! I used a ranch dressing to dip the coins in, but you can use any type of dipping sauce you wish.


An iced cold Blue Moon beer paired really well with this.

Vegan Tikka Masala




I am beginning to really love Vegetarian and/or Vegan entrees once or twice a week. It makes you feel soo good! My daughters and I adore Indian food and decided to try a vegan version of Tikka.

MSC Tikka Masala is hand blended from guajillo chili powder, bay leaves, smoked sweet paprika, turmeric, roasted garlic, cayenne, black pepper, ginger, cumin, fenugreek, cardamom, nutmeg and cloves.

A lot of recipes call for a can of coconut milk and yogurt. I chose to make mine without. The result is a light and delicious Tikka Masala. But, you certainly can add one or both, but not needed.

The flavor is amazing! A touch of heat, just enough to tickle your taste buds.

A lovely glass of Pinto Grigio pairs beautifully 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.

Meatless Mushroom Lasagna

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

Lasagna are a type of wide, flat pasta, possibly one of the oldest types of pasta. Lasagne, or the singular lasagna, commonly refers to a culinary dish made with stacked layers of pasta alternated with sauces and ingredients such as meats, vegetables and cheese, and sometimes topped with melted grated cheese.

Typically, the cooked pasta is assembled with the other ingredients and then baked in an oven. The resulting lasagne casserole is cut into single-serving square portions. Here is a recipe for a delicious Meatless Mushroom Lasagna, incorporating the versatile Milford Spice Company's An Evening in Tuscany.

Air Fryer Tikka Crunchy Garbanzo Beans


I received an Air Fryer for Christmas and absolutely love it! I look forward to sharing many recipes that are light, healthy and delicious.


I have made crunchy garbanzo beans in the oven before for a healthy snack. They took almost an hour to make. In the air fryer—15 minutes. Perfectly crunchy and seasoned to perfection! You can use any seasoning that sounds good to you.  


Today I used Tikka Masala. This mix is hand blended with guajillo chile powder, bay leaves, smoked sweet paprika, turmeric, roasted garlic, cayenne, black pepper, ginger, cumin, fenugreek, cardamom, caraway, nutmeg and cloves—it's wonderful. Use this in a traditional Tikka Masala dish but it's fantastic on roasted potatoes, popcorn, fish, chicken and veggies.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds


Pumpkin seeds are the perfect blank canvas for any seasoning. So simple to make and they are healthy and delicious. Great with a cold beer as you are passing out candy, or fantastic as a part of your Thanksgiving appetizer spread.


Today I chose to use Honey Chipotle. This is hand blended with granulated honey, sea salt, chipotle powder, granulated onion, Spanish paprika and Italian seasoning. Wonderful on salmon, shrimp, veggies, chicken, pork and popcorn! Sweet with a little bit of heat! Absolutely fantastic!


Mix raw cleaned pumpkin seeds with olive oil if you are using a savory spice and melted butter if you are going to the sweet side.


The most important part of getting crispy, crunchy seeds is to clean them really well and to boil them. It seems like an unnecessary step but this actually par cooks the seeds and ensures that they cook fully, when baked. Make sure to display your pumpkin!



Any cold beverage is fantastic with this treat!

Sweet Potato Quiche


Sweet potatoes are generally available all year round, but tend to become really popular during late fall. Today I decided to make a light lunch using sweet potatoes as the crust for my quiche. That makes this a low carb and low calorie lunch, light and delicious!


I chose Fish Delish to season the dish. It is hand blended with thyme, Greek oregano, basil, rosemary, sage, orange zest, lemon zest and fennel. This blend is fantastic as the "ultimate fish seasoning" of fennel and then the added citrus twist of lemon and orange zest. Fish Delish is also fabulous on chicken and pork. It also makes a wonderful salad dressing. To make 1 cup of dressing mix 1-2 tbsp seasoning in 2 tbsp water, let stand 5 minutes. Whisk in 1/3 cup red wine vinegar and 1/2 cup olive oil. Place any left over dressing in refrigerator.


Enjoy this quiche as a delightful brunch dish or cut into squares as an appetizer.



A cool glass of Chardonnay pairs beautifully with this dish.

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.

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.

This is a super quick side dish to prepare. Potatoes can handle any seasoning, so be creative.  


Today I am using Perfect Chili Seasoning. This fantastic mix is hand blended using Ancho chile powder, pasilla negro chile powder, smoked paprika, granulated onion, granulated garlic and cumin. This blend is fantastic on potatoes, sweet potatoes and corn on the cob. And, of course Chili!


Potatoes can be a blank canvas for almost any seasoning. Try Dillicious, Adobo Lime, Red Beans & Rice and DiDad's Passion for Pepper.


Enjoy!

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.

Hemp Seed Falafel with Tikka Masala Sauce


Many people on a ketogenic or low carb vegan diet are constantly looking for ways to increase protein to hit their macros. This pseudo falafel is made with hemp seeds rather than the traditional chickpeas. Hemp seeds boast a great nutritional profile with 10 grams for just 3 tablespoons. As a bonus, their 14 grams of fat per serving largely comes from healthy omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.


This recipe uses Tikka Masala which is a fantastic blend of guajillo chile powder, bay leaves, smoked sweet paprika, turmeric, roasted garlic, cayenne, black pepper, ginger, cumin, fenugreek, cardamom, caraway, nutmeg and cloves. Wonderful on veggies and also great on chicken.

Keto Vegan Taco Salad


I adore Mexican food. Ripe avocados, bright red tomato salsa, and aromatic cumin, garlic, and onions create some of the most satisfying dishes for my palate. As I continue to move toward a 100% plant-based lifestyle, I was hard-pressed to find a convincing taco meat substitute that was not riddled with a laundry list of unidentifiable ingredients and didn't break the bank. This paleo/keto/vegan "taco meat" recipe was the perfect solution. The mushrooms add a rich and meaty flavor while the combination of soaked and dry English walnuts helps create the consistency and texture of ground beef. The Mexican Blast blend tied all of the ingredients together to yield a truly delicious and authentic dish.

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.

Adobo Lime Roasted Tomatillo Salsa


This is one of my favorite salsas.  So fresh tasting with the lovely slightly roasted/charred flavor of the veggies.  I used Adobo Lime in this recipe because is adds such depth to the salsa.  This is hand blended with fennel seed, cumin, coriander, black pepper, garlic, Mexican oregano, lime zest, kosher salt, thyme and rosemary.  It is one of Milford Spice Company’s all time best sellers.  One of my families favorite!


You can vary the peppers you use depending on how spicy you like it.  More serranos and jalapeños=more spicy.


You can use this salsa for anything.  As a topper for tacos, burritos, enchiladas, or just chips.  It is fabulous on Huevos Rancheros too!

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!
