No ice cream after dinner in the FOODalogue house. I’ve been making the MOST SIMPLE and refreshing summer treat…and it’s healthy.
2 cups of honeydew, 2 ice cubes, splash of water blended in Magic Bullet. Cheers!
I made this dish and used it in lieu of any other topping. While it has all the basic flavors of ketchup and the usual toppings, it’s much more than a condiment. The flavors are very concentrated and depending on the amount of chili you add, it kicks! I made it up as I went along and overdid the chili so I’ll leave that quantity to you if you care to try the recipe. My lips still burn. It’s better than collagen! Continue Reading
I felt like something different for dinner. I wasn’t in the mood for a traditional composed dinner plate or a bowl of anything, so I made a trio of tapas. I’ve certainly had tapas for dinner before (most notably and most enjoyably in Spain ). Continue Reading

Also summer is high season for tomato and corn-on-the cob so that was the inspiration for the relish side dish that accompanies the calamari.

As food bloggers, we take pride in our work…from conception to execution and, finally, to the presentation. This is a really good recipe with a slightly flawed execution. That happens sometimes. And I guess it’s better than having a good execution of a flawed recipe. Right?
Maybe you wouldn’t even know it was flawed if I didn’t say so, but I’m telling you because I want to share it. Perhaps you’ll take this idea and improve on it. If you do, please come back and let me know. It has all the components I love…great taste, texture and beautiful colors. Continue Reading
