Grilled Chicken Scampi


We recently became the proud owners of a barbecue grill, replacing the one that died a few years back.  I really wanted the kind that uses wood charcoal.  theHubby really wanted a gas grill.  So after much back-and-forth and compromise, we bought a gas grill.  But I get to cook on it, so I'm the one who really benefits the most.

Now to decide what we should test-drive on it.

Corn and Arugula Salad


Whip out this salad at your next barbecue, or tote to your next picnic.  Then prepare yourself for loud oohs and ahhs.   Or, more likely, quiet nods in appreciation as everyone will be stuffing themselves and running back for seconds.

Pears with Warm Orange-Ginger Sauce - Easy



Sometimes I come up with a recipe all on my own.  Sometimes the ingredients are thrust upon me.  Like this recipe for the Improv Challenge, where participants are given two ingredients and sent off to create a masterpiece.   This month's challenge is to use orange and ginger.  My entry?  A dessert (of) course.

Helen's Delicious Pesach - Gluten-Free Cookbook Review

Until recently, there was this myth that a Passover recipe must either be bland  ("everything with flavor is forbidden") or the cardboard taste of matzoh is prevalent.  Neither are true in the slightest.   Such as the flavorful dishes Helen Goldrein provides in her Book Delicious Pesach (available now as an eBook).

Helen from family-friends-food provides many recipes that prove Passover recipes do not require  matzoh to be called a Passover recipe.  Her recipes are also 100% gluten-free.   If you have invited a guest with celiac disease who demurred due to the prevalence of gluten cooties in the usual Passover dishes, go ahead ... reinvite 'em.  They will certainly not starve at your Seder.  And neither will anyone else!
