This is based of a traditional german potato salad I had in Germany during a beer festival. I decided to use white sweet potatoes to try to keep it as close to a Paleo recipe as possible. I made my own mayonnaise and you can go to the recipe below. Enjoy

Gnocchi is so easy to make and everyone gets so excited when you serve it to them.  I decided to make this as a side to my Pork Milanese dinner and it was a big hit.  I pan fried them after they boiled but you can omit this step but it's really good.

  • Complexity: medium

Green Vegetable Quiche with Emeril's Flaky Crust

I love our farmers market here in Palm Beach Gardens.  Every Sunday I take the 2 mile ride and pick up all of my fresh vegetables, fruits and a jug of Kombucha.

I normally make a crustless quiche but since we had company and my husband loves a flaky crust I found this one from Emeril and it was DELICIOUS!

Enjoy..

Grilled Corn and Creamy Poblano Sauté
  • Time: 35 minutes
  • Complexity: easy

Grilled Corn and Creamy Poblano Sauté

We only eat corn late summer when it's tender and sweet.  At the lake house we entertain often and preparing this dish in advance was a great way to feed a crowd while enjoying local summer corn!  We loved the spice from poblano and jalapenô peppers!  

Go ahead and give this a try.  If you can't find local fresh corn then use frozen corn.  (I actually added a frozen bag of white sweet corn as 4 extra friends were coming over and I was afraid there would not be enough).

Enjoy xo

PS

I love my LeCreuset Pan!  Stove, Oven to Table!  Perfect.....

 

Grilled Polenta
  • Time: 3 hours
  • Complexity: easy

Grilled Polenta

My husband loves my short ribs and he says it's always better when I freeze it and he warms it up a few weeks later.  At our lake house during the summer there are nights we just want something easy.  Leftovers work perfect.  

I made grilled polenta and topped with warmed up the left over short ribs.  OMG it was amazing!  Great way to use up food handy in the house.  

Grilled Potato Salad
  • Time: 1 hour
  • Complexity: easy

Grilled Potato Salad

Living at the lake for the summer making potato salad or macaroni salad are served most often.  You can feed a crowd on these sides.  I decided to grill the potatoes and not boil as we normally do.  This potato had a nice smoky flavor and really added great texture to this salad.  I add celery and carrots for some extra crunch and freshness.

This was a great salad and hope you enjoy as well.

Homemade Ravioli with Pecorino and Truffle

In Germany we spend most of one day at a Farmer's Market.  It was also Oktoberfest so it was very busy and extremely amazing!  We defiantly ate our way through the market and even stopped for a few beers.  I brought home some truffle and knew it would go great with homemade raviolis.  

I like to combine semolina and AP flour for a delicate ravioli.  You can use all AP or even better us OO.

My raviolis are very easy to make and so much better than any store bought! The best part is the bragging rights!  Enjoy...

Lamb Bolognese
  • Time: 4 hours
  • Complexity: easy

Lamb Bolognese

During the summer we love grilling and we have the best butcher near us.  ED Stearns Meats has everything we need for the summer.  Some of their meats are frozen but you can just call them and they will take them out and have them ready for you.  Also, the butcher will cut your favorite slices of meat right in front of you!

I was at Stearns getting veal chops, pork butt and decided to grab some Lamb Shanks to make this delicious bolognese.  Give it a try!  Very yummy...  I served with roasted cauliflower but you can serve with pasta, polenta or just eat out of bowl and dip your bread!  Enjoy...

 

Lentil and Quinoa Cakes with Herb Dressing
  • Time: 45 minutes
  • Complexity: easy

Lentil and Quinoa Cakes with Herb Dressing

This recipe was created by left over lentils and extra ingredients I had during meal planning for the week.  I thought it would be perfect for our Daniel Fast. 

Here is the recipe for the Herb Marinade.

Chefs Tip:  If you are making lentils, quinoa or other grains and have left overs just put in a storage container then freeze.  You can pull them out when you want them again. That is what i did with the lentils.  They were left over from a few weeks ago and I pulled them out to use and this is what was created!

Note:  I used a large ice cream scoop to keep them the same size.

Enjoy xo
