Grilled Corn Guacamole Recipe

Grilled Corn Guacamole - Pinch My Salt

I’ve been seeing pictures of grilled avocados and grilled guacamole all over the place lately and I’ve been dying to try it.  Around here, we like to throw just abut anything on the grill, so I’m not sure why it took me so long to grill avocados, especially since we eat them at least a few times a week.

Whole Wheat Pigs in a Blanket with Cheddar Cheese

Whole Wheat Pigs in a Blanket

I haven’t been cooking much lately because we’ve been so busy, but every once in a while I get an urge to make something strange like these whole wheat pigs in a blanket.  They made a fun and fairly quick lunch and were surprisingly delicious.  I wasn’t planning on writing about them, but they turned out to be really tasty, so why not share?

Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries with Rosemary and Garlic

This was originally posted on election day four years ago, but I’m updating and bringing it forward because I have the same message for you today and these oven-baked sweet potato fries with rosemary and garlic are just as appealing to me now as they were back then.  These delicious baked sweet potato fries have so much flavor, you’ll never miss that they aren’t deep-fried.

National Deviled Egg Day

I am usually quite skeptical of all of these National (insert type of unhealthy food here) Days that are being announced with increasing frequency all over Facebook and Twitter.  If you search the internet you’ll find that there is an unofficial American food holiday attached to every single day of the year.  Continue reading →

Strawberry Bruschetta with Balsamic Vinegar and Basil

Strawberry Bruschetta with Balsamic Vinegar and Basil

While living in Sicily, my diet revolved around a few main staples during the warmer months: tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, olive oil, and bread.  I never grew tired of simple dishes like Insalata Caprese and Bruschetta al Pomodoro and I don’t think I ever will.  Each year, as the weather warms up, I start looking forward to tomato season, knowing it will bring plates of layered tomatoes and fresh mozzarella and trays of toasted bread topped with chopped tomato to my table once again.

Coconut Shrimp Poppers with Chili Mango Cream

Coconut Shrimp Poppers with Chili Mango Cream

In honor of the Real Women of Philadelphia cooking video competition, I decided to test out a recipe by one of the finalists.  These Coconut Shrimp Poppers with Chili Mango Cream by finalist Carmell Childs sounded so good, I just had to give them a try.  Amazingly, I managed to stop after just one (told you I was serious about my diet), but the rest were devoured in about five minutes by my friend Phil.  They were delicious!

Herbed Cheddar Parmesan Crisps Recipe

Cheddar Parmesan Crisps

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but there probably hasn’t been a whole lot of “me” showing up in the blog lately.  Sure, I’ve been sharing recipes, might have talked about the weather or the Farmer’s Market a few times, but I’ve been pretty guarded about what I share.  Yes, I’ve mentioned the divorce, and all the moving I’ve done in the past year, but there’s been something else going on with me lately.
