Most dishes I make for my family are rather simple; bowl of cherrios, an egg white omelet, a chicken tender with a bit of salt and pepper. Not much to look at as far as a photo goes, but in the right hands I’m sure even my pedestrian meals could sparkle. I have seen Lolo’s photos in many of my searches for great tasting, low calorie dishes! This one is a particular favorite of mine. Check out her blog for some great tips on food photography! And check out my recipe I based on this photo. http://veganyumyum.com/about/
Summer and tomatoes just go together. I try every year to grow tomatoes and always struggle to get it right. As much as I want to feed my family from our own garden, it is always slim pickings! But I live in one of the top producing agricultural belts in the country. So finding great tomatoes is pretty easy. Slice about 3/4 inch thick, stack and add a drizzle of oil olive and add some fresh herbs and micro greens. Summer dining at its best.
Creamy, tangy and a fresh nutty flavor. I live near Castroville (Artichoke capital of the world!) and buy artichokes almost daily during the season. I’ve made many dishes with artichokes but this soup is one of my favorites.
I love cabbage…now. My mom served cabbage all the time – cooked in stews, sliced and diced in slaw. You name the dish and mom added cabbage. As such, I had not eaten it for years. But I have found a new appreciation for this lovely green vegetable.Check out my salad recipe that highlights cabbage. I alternate between napa, purple or the standard green head, or use all three at once to add color and crunch to my salad.
