Shrimp & Avocado Cocktail- An Indulgent Start to Dinner

by TT July 28th, 2014 | Appetizers, Recipes, Salads
Recipes July has been the month of cold dishes.  Icy cold from the refrigerator, refreshing on the palate sort of dishes. I will end this month with another delightfully cooling dish, but this one is special.  It isn't an any night of the week dish (at least in my opinion.)  Rather this is a special occasion, dinner for two sort of recipe.  Of course, I could be biased, as this was the first course for my husband and my anniversary dinner.

However, I think I can make a case for the elevated status of this dish.

  1. Ingredient #1- shrimp.  Although shrimp is

by Jane Wangersky July 25th, 2014 | Cooking Basics Cooking Basics
Summer means barbecuing, so this week is a good time to review the best way to do that.

Still, some of the things I’ve learned over the years, plus some of the new discoveries I’ve read about,  stand out in my mind. So here

It’s too hot to turn on the oven and make my lemon pepper oven fries, which is a shame because they’d go so well with the burgers we’re going to be grilling in the backyard . . . but that doesn’t mean we can’t have potatoes flavored with lemon and pepper. This occurred to me as I was thinking about potato salads made with vinaigrette instead of creamy mayonnaise-based dressings. Why not make one with a lemon pepper vinaigrette?

You may be able to find lemon pepper easily in the store -- if so, you’re way ahead of me. (They

Overwhelmed by Zucchini? Here’s How to Freeze It

by Elizabeth Skipper July 23rd, 2014 | Ask the Chef
Zucchini season has begun.  Is there any way to freeze it for use in the winter? I know that I can pickle it, but I would prefer to have plain zucchini, which I can use in an assortment of dishes.

It's that time of year, when if your squash plants haven't been attacked by bugs, they're starting to produce in such quantities you'll soon be over-run. One to three plants are sufficient for most families, but sometimes it's hard to believe that and so we over-plant. Even if we don't, the kitchen counter starts to get buried, the neighbors are

10 Fitch Tropical Breakfast Sorbet

by BnB Finder July 22nd, 2014 | Best BnB Bites, Recipes
Best BnB Bites Where I live, we handle winter a lot better than summer -- we're much more used to winter. Lately, it's been too hot even for coffee or tea at breakfast. That's the kind of day when our thoughts turn to breakfasts like this. Though this sorbet is much like ice cream, the creaminess comes from ripe bananas -- and coconut milk, which, like most of the ingredients, comes out of a can. You don't need an ice cream maker; your freezer does the work overnight. If you'd like a getaway that's also quick and easy to plan, try this
