KALE/CABBAGE SAUTE

Now, here’s a crowd-pleaser (sautéed kale/cabbage) that can be had at any meal. I did; and my palate was reintroduced to a crispy, tasty and nutritious treat. This delicious side was just what I needed to add to my breakfast and supper meals.

WENT RED!! #FRIED RED TOMATOES/AVOCADO DIP

Needed something to quiet and satisfy the craving within. What do you know? Bobby Flay came to my rescue. Stumbled on one of his Brunch shows. One of the items on the menu was fried red tomatoes. Decided to create my version as I had the main ingredients on hand (red plum tomatoes). Sliced them…

POLENTA (TURNED CORNMEAL) WITH TWIST

Got a little excited. And, when I do, culinary storms are liable to develop. First, it started out with my fresh, nutritious, and satiating coconut. It was a good one; full of creamy goodness.

I SEE SIGNS OF A #GRILLED CORN SALAD

WEDGES OF SWEET GOODNESS #CARROT/SWEET POTATO WEDGES

It was like Christmas in September. My kitchen emitted a bouquet of warm and aromatic flavors that enveloped my entire abode. Guys, I’m talking about the co-mingling of paprika and cinnamon sprinkled on  wedges of carrot and sweet potatoes. With a drizzle of canola oil and a pinch of sea salt along with the earthy…

VINE-RIPE TOMATOES AND TARRAGON SALAD

The marketplace is still loaded with one of summer’s favorites, vine ripe tomatoes. As a result, I took advantage of the influx by purchasing a few. Based on studies, tomatoes are best stored outside the refrigerator at room temperature so as allow all the flavors to mature.  Thus, I practice same and use these sweet…
