Avocado Cream Cheese

the spread to cut the jalapeno bite I created this light spread last-minute with just 5 ingredients or less to put on my Mexican Burger dish. The taste of fresh avocado ended up being the perfect way to cut through the bite of the jalapeno in Uncle Nate’s Pico de Gallo. And now, I spread it on all sorts of sandwiches. The dish that is my favorite with this spread besides Mexican Burgers is on crusty bread with a couple slices of Flank Steak hot off the grill. Yummy on any burger. Even a treat on a good ol’ fashioned BLT with my Better Bacon. YUM. There are so many health benefits of avocados so be sure to try out this recipe! More on Avocado Cream Cheese »

Mint Pesto

the freshest of the fresh Of all the herbs in the window box, fresh mint just may be my favorite. Whether it’s a dainty Greek Grilled Cheese Sandwichor a hearty leg of lamb, mint takes the fresh factor to a whole new level. Mint is used everywhere in the summer, but do not be afraid to use it year round. More on Mint Pesto »

Truly a taste of freshness, pesto is a seasonless treat that lightens up all foods. Play with this pesto in recipes in need of perk. I use this pesto recipe in my Caprese Burger.

Pomegranate Cranberry Sauce

a tango of sweet and tart I put this pomegranate cranberry sauce recipe together for good ol’ fashioned Thanksgiving dinner, but have since used it so many different ways. Pomegranate Cranberry Sauce makes a great dipping sauce for smoked shrimp, a yummy stir-in with hot oatmeal and walnuts. Substitute it for the grapes on a Brie and Grape Grilled Cheese, add it as a layer in the Yogurt Parfaitrecipe, or drip it right on top of the Sweet Cream Phyllo Cups. You can’t go wrong anyway you use it. More on Pomegranate Cranberry Sauce »
