Box and canned meal alert. We really like Knor’s Falafel mix for a quick dinner. It’s so easy and hits all the boxes when we are after that fix and perfect for warm summer nights. We usually serve them with our favorite tzatziki sauce but tonight we made a quick aioli which worked beautifully as… Continue reading Falafel Sandwich with Awesome Fava Beans
This rocked. I haven’t done Halibut on the grill for what seems like forever….actually any fish directly on the grill for that matter. The Lodge Cast Iron Pans have taken over for cooking fish outdoors on the grill. The poor neglected grill grates have little if any memory of fish directly on them.

Another reason why it’s a blast growing your own tomatoes is they can be prolific. In so much as… Continue reading Tomato and Oregano Tarts -Roger Verge
This recipe from Julia grabbed my attention with the mention of Chutney. I love Chutney and it’s just so rare for me to come across. Chutney is not excactly a staple in San Diego for that matter. Though I didn’t have Chutney this evening, I did have some excellent Golden Plum Preserves we have been… Continue reading Julia’s Sauteed Pork Chops with Robuchon cumin orange glazed carrots.
