The next time you fire up the grill, go double duty and whip up a batch of grilled guacamole with pistachios. This recipe is a chunky-style guacamole that has a slightly smokey, grilled flavor and surprise crunch of pistachios.
I had never had Okonomiyaki before I made it, but I can’t wait to have it again! Some people call it “Japanese pizza” or “Japanese pancakes.” I found it to be similar to a frittata. Assorted vegetables heaped into a thin egg/flour batter makes this dish a great appetizer or a light meal.
Homemade bread doesn’t have to be difficult. Think focaccia! This recipe for Focaccia with Tomato, Green Onion and Garlic is amazing, and it’s easy to make.
It’s beet season and I’ve been coming across them at the markets. Since they’re everywhere (and my sister hasn’t given me the recipe for her famous beet soup yet) I decided to make a simple snack – Baked Beet Chips with Blue Cheese Dip. Might sound strange, but not when I say that these turn to chips – baked not fried – that are crispy, delicious and addicting!
