From I Want To Cook That!
The first time that I ever ate fire roasted tomatoes was at a international food fair. It was a bruschetta. I thought that I had died and gone to heaven. The intensity of the tomatoes with a smoky undertone. I loved it. I loved it even more when I found out that these were canned tomatoes. I could use them anytime of the year.
Here is a great salsa recipe to make.

You know how you make a dish and you have to open a can to use part of it for an ingredient? Well! We love artichoke frittatas. I used canned artichokes, but always have some left that end up sitting in the refrigerator until I finally remember to use them in a salad. The problem is that they never taste as good as when they are an ingredient that blends with other ingredients.
I made a frittata the other day and have half the can sitting in the fridge just waiting to be gobbled up. I saw recipe and it looks so good! The only change I am going to make is to use shredded mozzarella instead of balls!
Cheesy Spinach & Artichoke Dip Recipe
The the Palate Evolved Blog!
Unfortunately for me, I have a problem with an elevated cholesterol. I was told to lose the cheeses. I agree with this blogger! I’ve never a met a cheese I didn’t like. One of my favorite snacks was some cheese with a glass of wine. The thought of never having cheese again was totally depressing. Talk about magnifying things out of proportion.
As a nurse, I have always taught my patients to do things in moderation. I realized that I needed to listen to myself. Now I have cheese as a special. I look for unique recipes to make. I feel less deprived. This looks like a great recipe! And Halloumi is a cheese I have never had.

Confession: I’ve never a met a cheese I didn’t like. But it wasn’t until only a year or two ago that I came into contact with my absolute favorite: Halloumi. What is Halloumi cheese? It’s a semi-hard brined cheese made from a mixture of goat’s and sheep’s milk, and sometimes cow’s milk. It is salty and […]
I made this spicy black bean dip this weekend for a dinner. It’s relatively low fat. Gluten Free. And Vegan. People loved it. Especially people who had a problem with gluten. Several people wanted the recipe, so I told them I would repost it. And here we are!
When you start out as a beginner vegetarian, parties are really hard. Especially, if you are trying to do it in a healthy way. You don’t know how many times I have gone to a party and there really wasn’t anything that I could eat. Maybe a salad, but not too often.
People would find out that I was a vegetarian and they would look for something for me to eat. A lot of times I would get an offer of fried chicken(I am in the South). Or someone would find some shrimp. And I would explain that a vegetarian diet didn’t include either of those. They were shocked. They thought being vegetarian meant not eating beef or chicken.

The first time that I ate hummus, I thought ‘eh’. What’s the big deal? Most of the hummus seemed heavy and bland. It wasn’t something that I would go out of my way for.
One day I went a party and tasted the hummus. It was an explosion of flavors. I thought OMG! This is wonderful. I realized that what I had before was all wrong. Made all wrong that is. Too much tahini. No spices.
When saw this recipe, I knew it’s something that I would be worth making. Check it out!
