Paleo Rice

Several months back I started to hear the word "paleo" cropping up more and more. Not knowing too much about it, except that it was the caveman diet, I purchased a paleo book. Sorry, didn't notice the name, but I do remember it was heavy!

Over-Roasted Cauliflower

Do you remember when we were told to eat only colorful foods? Eliminate the bland from your plate: consume vegetables and fruit that are green, red, blue, orange. We walked the produce isles looking for health and vibrance, ignoring the scorned white cauliflower.

Mint and Pea Sauce

This is one of my all time favorite sauces. I've used it as a pasta sauce, tucked it in panini, spread it on crostini, and it's sublime with lamb -- but I'm most partial to serving it either under, on, or alongside seared-roasted salmon fillets.

Roasted Tomatoes

I seldom throw out old tomatoes. I often end up with cherry tomatoes that are just beginning to shrivel. Or beefsteak tomatoes that are beginning to soften. They seem un-useable, but actually there's nothing wrong with them, except for the texture -- as long as they haven't started to rot in spots. I usually have an abundance of tomatoes in my kitchen -- various varieties depending on the season.
