These lovely fava beans grill up nicely, whether on a fire pit, charcoal barbecue, or a grill pan on your stove. They are tender and full of flavor.
This is a sweet salad with exotic spices in the background. Creamy potatoes with a nice bit of crunch in the vegetables! Use store-bought Old Bay or make your own here!
This is a quick and easy soup that makes a complete lunch when served with rolls, tortillas or corn bread. If you want more heat, add a dash of your favorite hot sauce.
You never quite know what you are getting with store blended chili powder. This is a blend I like for my own chili powder. It does not have much heat, is not heavy on the cumin, yet provides a good, rich depth of seasoning. It can be used with other spices for many South and Central American dishes.
These tasty appetizers are not only a healthy choice, they are a low calorie choice. Prepare 5 or 6 for each guest. They will disappear in a flash!
This beautiful salad can make a main course luncheon dish or side salad for a vegetarian meal. It is the perfect bring-along Autumn salad!
When persimmons are in season here is Southern California, venders sell them along the roads, and they are perfectly delicious! Try them in these quick and easy tostadas, or use them in making my Persimmon Salad.
This lasagna holds together nicely and slices up well, though it is still very moist. It has slightly spicy notes from the peppery cheese and the mace. We love it!
Broccoflower is a mild-tasting vegetable that makes a refreshing summer salad. I love a touch of mint on this broccoflower salad. It can be made ahead of time and will keep well for a day or two!
This potato salad is unlike any other I've had, but it's really delicious. It is perfect for a hot summer day!
