Believe me, I know, the title of this idea scares me too! First of all there’s a vegetable in there not many of us are familiar with (kohlrabi) and then I’m mixing one of natures most amazing fruit (at least I think so), the watermelon with cheese. Not any cheese but FETA. Yeah.. my gut response is yuck as well… but hear me out!
Oh My! I can not believe how many amazing ideas I’m getting from the The First Fabulous Friday Feta Giveaway! Just reading through them is SO inspiring!
I combined a few of the comments to make a light tasty salad this morning. Coming off a weekend of insane fast food indulging this was the perfect light, tasty meal I needed. I love how 6 ingredients can pack so much satisfying flavor. And I absolutely adore the combo of balsamic, feta and basil! Read the rest of this post
I told you guys I rarely read recipes, right? It’s funny but when I read them and actually find out what’s in the dish I’m not as inspired to make it. Oh I’m an odd duck, I know. lol Anyway I saw this recipe or should I say picture of Kalyn’s Carrot, Parsley, and Garbanzo (Chickpea) Salad with Feta and Cumin and I immediately got an idea for my own Chickpea and feta idea.
I try a lot of different things in the kitchen, it’s just in my nature to make stuff up. Normally I know if an idea will work or not but sometimes I just take a shot. This was one of those times. I didn’t even bother to grab my camera during prep because I really didn’t think this this would work out. Boy was I wrong!
I made this up while home for the 4th of July Holiday weekend. I just wanted something quick and fresh using what I had on hand.
I’m not quite sure why I only made a half it was so good I ended up immediately making another. I didn’t think I’d like it so much but the balsamic soaked into the bread nicely and the crisp cucumbers and fresh basil were amazing with the feta. Read the rest of this post
I had two cute eggplants from the farm pickup last week and I thought to myself… “self.. I bet eggplant and feta would go REALLY good together. Especially with some tomato. Oh! and I have Basil!”
So I googled “Feta Eggplant” and look at all the pretty pictures. Noticing that some recipes had chickpeas, I devised my plan! :)
There’s just something about the feta, spinach roasted pepper combination that I’m really enjoying. It’s a trifecta of flavor with the fresh spinach, sweet pepper and salty, creamy cheese. Tonight I put is all on/in a burger. Just perfect on a hot summer day and boy is it HOT! We are breaking records here in Maryland. I’m loving it! :)
One of the more interesting things about joining a CSA is a fridge full of veggies that you don’t normally buy or eat. I can honestly say I have never bought a turnip in my life. Not that there’s anything wrong with turnips, they just weren’t part of my produce portfolio. You didn’t think you had a “produce portfolio” did you? :) I think many of us get in ruts and buy the same things over and over again which is why I started the whole produce pick concept in the first place.
Anyway, I have found myself with a plethora of spring turnips and they’ve been sitting in my fridge for a couple of weeks now. Read the rest of this post
Sometimes simple is simply DELICIOUS! I can’t get over how much I enjoyed this salad! Normally I’m not a cheese mixed with fruit kind of gal, I’m not sure why. The sweet fruit and the salty, creamy feta did make a great combo!
I also rarely buy salad dressing, but my attempts at recreating a sweet poppy seed dressing have all flopped. So I caved and bought this at Trader Joe’s… Read the rest of this post
I made these for dinner last night and I’m in HEAVEN! What an easy, light, tasty way to make dinner for one (the husband and child stuck with leftovers.) I used to make Skillet Veggies all the time and simple got out of the habit. Not sure why. It’s so easy to make a base of veggies to use with anything… tacos, pizza, wraps, side dish, really, however you want to use them, they work.
Last night I decided to make up just enough for me. Read the rest of this post
My first experiment is a smashing success! You know me and my addiction, if anything even resembles a pizza, I’m game. I thought for sure I’d miss the mozzarella on this but not a chance! This little baby was PACKED with flavor. The sweet tomato paste and peppers with the spices and creamy cheese. I loved it!
