The Italian BLT Triple Decker Sandwich | An Alliterative Creative Cooking Crew Challenge

The challenge: Take the iconic triple decker sandwich someplace it’s never been before. Oh yeah, and let’s make it an alliteration using at least 3 ingredients beginning with the same letter.

While the challenge (reasonably) called for making only one sandwich, I made two. Why? … because after the first one, I learned that “triple”refers to # of fillings, not slices of bread — although my original interpretation is a popular one shared by many. But, what the hell? I decided to create a totally different one.

You Can Have Your Burger and Eat It Too! Turkey + Avocado Burger with the Works

Who doesn’t love a good burger? I know I do, but I don’t like sacrificing near to a whole day’s worth of calories and consuming food that I know is not really good for me.

This burger is packed with flavor; in fact, it’s tastier than the traditional cheeseburger and it contains significantly fewer calories, saturated fat and sodium. Continue Reading

And the Winner Is…

Thank you to everyone who participated in my search to find something interesting to put in my cup and saucer set. I found it fascinating that the majority of the suggestions were ‘sweet’. I don’t know why that continues to surprise me. The internet is lopsided with recipes for desserts and other sweet endings (or in-betweens).

But, that’s not me. And since I have to eat what I make, I satisfied my palate. Continue Reading

Reinventing the Meatball Parmigiana Sub: 2011 Version

I’m not a traditionalist. Never claimed to be. Not in my beliefs, not in my life’s decisions and certainly not in my kitchen. I stand squarely against doing things a certain way (or any specific way) just because that’s how they are/were conventionally done.  It may be a controversial stance to some who hold tradition dear, but for me to do otherwise would be contra my mind’s eye. Sure, I’m influenced and guided by prevailing wisdom and ‘tried + true’ experiences, but I adhere to the view that every.single.thing in life could – and should – be routinely revisited, questioned and perhaps reinterpreted with the passage of time. That goes for relationships, behavior, beliefs, politics, style…and food!

A Perfectly Paired Summer Meal

The first time I saw a peach and tomato salad on one of the food blogs, I literally drooled. Oh, yes, I did. I knew there would be one in my immediate future.
