I’ve always been a huge fan of Bobby Flay, but after finding this recipe, I’m his number one fan. These tacos are some of the best I’ve ever tasted; they have an incredible complexity of flavors and textures, from the flaky, cinnamon-chile rubbed halibut to the crisp citrus slaw. I’m getting giddy just thinking about eating the leftovers for lunch today!

I love summertime, primarily because it’s grilling season. I’ve always been a fan of grilled food with that delicious char flavor. This spicy corn salad has the grilled taste and bursts with flavor, from the spice of the hot sauce to the sweetness of the sugar and honey. The dish pairs wonderfully with grilled chicken, and even better with this honey-lime chicken burrito!

IMG_6698I couldn’t help but notice the pimento cheese recipes floating around the Internet, so I wanted to try it myself. Of course, being a burger lover, I decided to use the cheese on a juicy burger. The pimento cheese is delicious plain, as a dip with chips, but the melted, gooey cheese was divine on a burger!

IMG_4938How is Christmas only two weeks away?! I’m having a minor panic attack, as I’m behind on just about everything–shopping, decorating, holiday baking, etc. But I’m kicking it in gear this week and going to check some things off my list. Baking is first on the list, of course. :)

DSC_0060-LVeeV Spirits contacted me a couple months ago asking if I’d be interested in creating a dish to pair with one of their seasonal cocktails. I gladly accepted the offer, and chose to work with the VeeV Fruit Cup Sangria. The cocktail was sweet and delicious, and paired wonderfully with my slightly spicy grilled eggplant stacks. Both the cocktail and eggplant stacks are making an appearance at our Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow!

VeeV is featuring my recipe on their Facebook page today…check it out here!

How is it already August?! The next couple months are going to fly by for me, as I’ll be in Ohio two different weekends, then my brother gets married in September. Though it’s been extremely busy, it has been and will be a blast spending time with family and friends. I’ll only be in LA two weekends out of the upcoming seven, so I might be a little slow to post!

On to the recipe–this dish is simple and delicious, with the star being the creole mustard sauce. The meat and vegetables can be served on or off the  kabobs. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to snap a photo until after we ate, so the veggies aren’t pictured. Food blogger fail!

IMG_3943This burrito is the epitome of a fresh, summer meal (unlike my last post). The sweetness of the chicken and corn compliments the slightly spicy tomatillo sauce. Though the recipe was somewhat laborious, it was completely worth it. All of the components were delicious on their own, and even better when combined.

Hope everyone is having a great Saturday. Whether or not you’re a vegetarian, this “burger” is definitely worth making. It’s flavorful and complex–the bite of the Dijon mayonnaise compliments the earthy tasting patty, while the slightly crispy bun perfectly contrasts the creamy goat cheese and tender patty. It’s a healthy alternative to a hamburger with fewer calories. :)

Happy hump day! Hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far. Per usual, it’s been pretty hectic over here, but I’ve got to say, these tequila-lime mahi mahi tacos made everything much better.

Though the marinade didn’t flavor the fish as much as I’d hoped, the honey-lime sour cream and vinegar-soaked cabbage brought the tacos to life. Serve alongside an ice cold beer and you’ve got yourself the perfect summer meal.

It’s already Wednesday? This week is flying by for me. Of course, now that I say that, the rest of the week is going to go by painfully slow. Let’s hope not though, because I can’t wait to go home this weekend to see my cousins from Ohio–it’s been far too long!

I was home last weekend as well, so my mom and I made these unbelievably flavorful stuffed peppers served atop a couscous blend. I’ve eaten this for lunch the past three days, and wish I had enough for the rest of the week. Though the recipe was time-consuming, the hours spent were definitely worth it. Delicious, healthy, colorful–can’t go wrong. :)
