Stuffed Zucchini Pizza Style (with Feta, of Course!)

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!

Feta Cucumber, Tomato and Basil Sandwich

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 »»

Roasted Eggplant with Tomato and Feta

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! :)

Spinach Feta Turkey Burgers

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! :)

Turnip Parsley Cakes

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 »»

The Red White and Blue Sweet Summer Salad!

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 »»

Skillet Veggie and Feta Tacos

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 »»

Roasted Red Pepper and Feta Tortilla Pizza

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!

July is ATHENOS Feta Cheese Month!

One thing you need to know about me… I LOVE a challenge. So when ATHENOS asked if I was interested in becoming a Spokesblogger for their Make a Change for the Feta campaign and coming up with 18 Feta Cheese ideas for the month of July, I was immediately interested.

Here’s the thing… I rarely eat Feta and I don’t think I’m alone here. I mean like it. I get it on my wraps at work all the time. I just never really thought about fun ways to use it at home.

Well, that’s all about to change! Read the rest of this post »»

Roasted (Wish They Were Grilled) Cabbage

I have a confession. This summer loving home cook has no grill. :( We HAD a grill at our old house but it became a casualty of the move and now a new one just isn’t in our budget. Unfortunately the deck where that grill would love to sit is also out of the question but I digress.

As the name suggests I’d much rather throw these on the grill however, they work perfectly fine in the oven. So why not? Read the rest of this post »»

20 Minute Roasted Potato Fries

This is my favorite way to cure a french fry craving at home. They make a great side dish or even a fun snack.

Sometimes I think the white potato gets a bad rep. I normally choose sweet but there’s nothing wrong with a good size Idaho now and then. ESPECIALLY in fry form. :)
