Cubanelle and Veal Bolognese

I have found myself to have daily visits to Joseph's Classic Market theses days and creating new recipes.

Not only do we have amazing markets here in Palm Beach Gardens but our farmers markets are spectacular spectacular and only 2 miles from my house each Sunday.  How perfect is that for me!  At the market I always go to Benders tent as they have everything I need and it's fresh.  The prices are great and it's per items so there is no waiting to weigh.  They had cubanella peppers 4 for $1.00.  Of course I got 4 and grilled 2 with our steak dinner.  Looking at the remaining 2 this dish came to me and I served it with sweet potato pasta!  YUMMY Paleo dinner....

I was going through my spices and decided to use Cumin for dinner. I am always going for the Italian spices and thought it was time to switch it up a little. Grabbed a jar of Cumin and Paprika and this is what happened in my kitchen!

Easy falafel Recipe

I have been making so many Greek salads for Brooke and I this summer.  My granddaughter loves salads, vegetables and chicken.  

My future daughter-in-law was over this past weekend with the kids and I knew she would enjoy falalfels with me in a pita pocket filled with a Greek salad then drizzled with EVOO.  YUMMY!

Enjoy xo

Cindy's Tip!  Keep dried seasonings handy.  Fresh herbs are easy to keep all year. Outside during the summer and bring inside and set near a sunny window for fresh herbs in the winter too!

 

Easy Sauté Vegetable Salad with Tuna and Italian Dressing

Easy Sauté Vegetable Salad with Tuna and Italian Dressing

I am really working on staying on track for 2016.  I joined a new gym down here in Florida and it's called Hard Exercise Works (HEW) and I really love it.  It's very similar to my CrossFit workouts and the energy is just amazing.  Another great think about my new gym is it's next to a Fresh Market which I just love and so many other healthy markets.

While walking through the market starting from the produce everything looks fresh, bright and I wanted one of everything.  I started with the fresh greens which was a combination of baby spinach, baby kale and mixed greens, then I saw the fresh mushrooms, asparagus and cherry tomatoes.  I walked over to the prepared section and their tuna looked perfect.  Of course, I was offered a sample and immedialty asked for 1 pound of tuna.  You can make your own but I felt great with the short cut!

You can sauté up any vegetables such as zucchini, red peppers or even eggplant would be a great addition.  I will be grabbing those next stop!  I did make my own dressing so easy and perfect.  I will be using the leftover dressing for a marinade during the week!

Easy Sweet Potato Fritters

I just realized that there are a lot of sweet potato recipes on my blog.  I do love sweet potatoes.

This recipes was inspired by a recent trip to Bolder.  My friend Monica and I went out to lunch and they had these hugs sweet potato fritters on the counter with a marshmallow topping.   We each ate one but OMG they were filling and the topping was really sweet.

I decide to make my healthy (Paleo) version.  My husband just loved these and asked me to save 2 for breakfast with his eggs in the morning.  I even gave one to Jake - of course he just loved it too!  

Enjoy!  These are super yummy

PS
I just used one large sweet potato and made about 8 fitters.  Just a FYI

Flank Steak with Salsa Verde
  • Time: 1 hour
  • Complexity: easy

Flank Steak with Salsa Verde

There are so many ways to prepare flank steak and it cooks so fast you can have dinner ready in no time at all! I like to marinade for the day with salt, pepper, garlic powder and olive oil in the refrigerator in a sealable bag. Just heat the grill, prepare your salsa verde and this dish can be on the table in no time at all!

*CHEFS NOTE* Don't shy away from the anchovies as they make this salsa verde extra special and it does not have an anchovy taste, but amazing flavor addition. If you do not have anchovies then use 1/2 teaspoon of anchovy paste!

Flax
  • Time: 18 minutes
  • Complexity: easy

Flax" vegan" Eggs

As I am preparing for Daniel Fast it was necessary to come up with another way to use "eggs" in my recipes.  Especially for binding.  I was told by a Vegan baker that she uses Flax seeds.  I tested it out and yes......  Works perfect.

Here are a few tips from my stumbles.  I will be adding this recipe link to keep it handy on multiple recipes for the Daniel fast and any Vegetarian recipes.

Tips:  Get a coffee grinder (about $9.99 or go to a thrift shop for $2)  You will use this every time you make your Flax eggs.  

Buy raw whole flax seeds and grind them fresh each time. Keep flax seeds in the refrigerator or freezer for storage.  

You may find there is a "nutty" taste but I think it's very subtle and have begun to enjoy the taste.

This recipe is per 1 egg.  If you need to use 2 eggs just double, 3 eggs just triple, you get it now......

 

Fresh Herb Chimichurri Chicken Kabobs
  • Time: 3-4 hours
  • Complexity: easy

Fresh Herb Chimichurri Chicken Kabobs

Don't you just love fresh herbs in the summer.  We have pots of herbs along our walk way and it smells amazing.  At the lake we do a lot of entertaining and making my Fresh Herb Chimichurri Chicken Kabobs are always a hit!  

I like to marinade the prepared kabobs in the refrigerator for several hours.  Then save some of the pesto to serve along side the kabobs.  Delicious!

Cindy's Tip!  If using wooden sticks be sure to soak in water for at least 30 minutes before preparing the kabobs. That will prevent the sticks from burning while grilling!

 

Garden Gazpacho

  • Complexity: easy

Garden Gazpacho

With all of the garden vegetables my husband requested a gazpacho and OMG it was great to use what I had just picked from my friends garden.  We just love living at the lake during the summer and our friends came over to enjoy this with us.  

I do realize how lucky I am and try to show my gratitude every day!  We have a wonderful family and friends who truly love to be around us.

I did state it takes 25 minutes and that is the time to chop, put together and clean up.  The longer you let it sit in the refrigerator the better. Try to give it 2 hours to let the flavors combine.

All you need for this recipe are the ingredients (and add other fresh vegetables), a food processor and a bowl! Enjoy this Paleo Summer Soup!

 

 

Garlic Crusted Rack of Lamb with Shallot Sauce

  • Complexity: medium

Garlic Crusted Rack of Lamb with Shallot Sauce

OMG - That is the only work I can think of to start this recipe.  I love one pot recipes and this one was  a big hit for dinner.  We had another couple over for dinner and my husband kept asking me, "are you sure that pan is big enough"  Of course honey!  My lodge cast iron pan is Amazing and has not left my stove stop for the entire month of December!  The shallot sauce really made this dish pop with extra flavor.  All of those bits from the lamb along with the shallot, mustard and broth were the perfect combination!

Go ahead and make this! 

BTW! Mostly because it's just Glenn and I (and of course Jake) we don't need to do big shopping therefore I go almost everyday.  Almost everyone I know has told me the meats at Costco are great!  We really had a hard time believing that as we go to specialty meat markets for ours.  Well, I was at Costco with my sister-in-law and she grabbed 2 so I decided to get myself a few.  WOW the meat was amazing!  Very impressed by their meats.  Great for families or entertaining!

I am really enjoying creating bowl recipes!  It's fun enjoying all of the flavors together.  Not to mention we just love meatballs in our family.  I hope you love this recipe!

Cindy's Note:  You can use spaghetti squash, rice noodles or even zucchini noodles.  I used linguini just because but also made it again and used spaghetti squash.  Very yummy!!!  

Spaghetti Squash - After I baked the squash and removed the strands then put in a bowl.  I added fresh ginger, salt pepper and chopped cilantro then drizzled a little sesame oil!  Amazing....

Sorry I took the picture before we garnished and ate!  We just couldn't wait.....

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.

Grilled Calamari Salad

This is an Italian favorite! When ever this salad was offered at any restaurant in Tuscany we would order to enjoy before dinner with a glass of red wine! We have noticed that many Italian restaurants here in the states are now offering a grilled calamari salad, with their own personal twist.

*Cindy's Note* This is a recipe you want to prepare and enjoy immediately!

 

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 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.
