So how about it guys, do you read magazines any longer? I get so much information online that they sometimes seem obsolete. And yet I manage to subscribe to a couple of food magazines because they are just so inexpensive. And they inspire me – when I manage to get them open and actually read them! That’s how I fell in love with the idea of this Moqueca Brazilian Seafood Stew – I saw it in Food & Wine Magazine.
I’m not sure when it all started. Maybe when I ran down to Minneapolis (in rush hour, no less) and picked up some gorgeous Feta at Bill’s Imported Foods (I love to give a shout-out to a local business) so I could make Bulgarian Clay Pots (not the pottery, the recipe) and ever since then, I can’t stop eating Feta or recipes with Feta in them! And so maybe it isn’t such a surprise that I’d make Honey Roasted Feta.
Our summer has gone from cold, cool and rainy to hot, humid and rainy in the snap of the finger! I don’t know about you but I just go limp when it’s too hot and humid. I don’t want to do anything, I don’t want to eat and I sure as heck don’t want to cook. And then when I do get hungry? I make bad choices. My solution? Make a great big ol’ salad and top it off with a quick & easy protein and a fabulous dressing. And so here’s my Mediterranean Salmon Salad.
If you follow my site, and if not, you can check the right sidebar for all the options, you know I made up a mess of Chickpeas in the Instant Pot a while back. And while those Chickpeas are pretty amazing (they’re cooked with aromatics and herbs) I wanted to make something with them. Something quick, easy and healthy. And here it is, Spicy Pomodoro Chickpeas. Oh, yeah, it has Kale, too.
I gotta say, I’m pretty much all over the place, today. Yesterday it was a down-home dish of Easy Cheesy Chili Mac and today? Today, I’m going to Bulgaria, in my mind at least, and serving up Bulgarian Cheese Pot – Сирене по шопски в гювече. If you are from Bulgaria or know Bulgarian, please feel free to correct my translation if it isn’t correct! Google translation has not always done me right!
