Wheat Germ & Herb Biscuits and a Super Food Giveaway!

Wheat Germ and Herb Biscuits

Recently, I was offered a free jar of Kretschmer Wheat Germ to try and also a jar to giveaway on my blog, which is really great but honestly, I already knew about the awesomeness of wheat germ. I’ve been a fan for awhile and use it all the time for coating chicken, adding to granola and cereals and even baking. Did you know that you could do all of that with wheat germ? Well, you can.

And also, wheat germ is a super food. It’s an excellent source of nutrients including . . . → Read More: Wheat Germ & Herb Biscuits and a Super Food Giveaway!

FFwD: Cafe Style Grated Carrot Salad

Carrot Salad

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie is Cafe Style Grated Carrot Salad and it is going to be a super quick post — not because it doesn’t deserve more review but because it is so amazingly hot upstairs that I don’t want to be up here very long.

Notes: 1. I used golden raisins, pecans and cilantro in my salad. 2. I halved the recipe. 3. It was very good and a nice, cool dinner along with a chicken and herb sandwich.

Here’s a link to everyone’s posts and a couple of photos.

Summer Side Dish: Grilled Zucchini with Garlic and Lemon Butter Baste

This was a side dish that worked really well with some grilled albacore tuna steaks. For the fish, I made a quick topping of kalamata olives, green olives, cherry tomatoes, red onion, olive oil, lemon juice and feta cheese. So, it was a Mediterranean kind of a thing (one of my favorite kinds of things).

The zucchini grilled while the fish rested. I think the scores in the zucchini are to let the buttery goodness soak in. This recipe is easily halved or even quartered. I did the later with 2 tbsp butter, 1/2 . . . → Read More: Summer Side Dish: Grilled Zucchini with Garlic and Lemon Butter Baste

Super Foods Friday#6: Feta and Pumpkin Casserole

Super Foods count here is three. Not too bad. This turned into a very successful experiment. jwa was a bit skeptical, as he is with all things that involve pumpkin. Although, once I told him I was using butternut squash as a substitute, he relaxed. He has some kind of weird pumpkin phobia that strikes in the Fall and doesn’t leave until Spring.

I changed this a bit from the original — I added olive oil, the sausage and the roux. I also used chicken broth in this version (mahahahaha, Vegetarian Times!) rendering it meat-laced and . . . → Read More: Super Foods Friday#6: Feta and Pumpkin Casserole

Super Foods Friday #5: Turkey Stuffed with Goat Cheese & Walnuts with a Blueberry-Port Sauce

title

Edited because I forgot about the spinach. Oops!. Three. Four. Count ’em, three four super foods: turkey, walnuts, blueberries and spinach. Woohoo. I saw a recipe for a blueberry-port sauce which I thought looked very good (originally, it was alongside a pork tenderloin) but instead, I decided to pair it up with a stuffed chicken breast.

But — hold the phone, there. Swap the chicken for turkey and add some walnuts and spinach to the goat cheese and hey! It’s a Super Foods meal.

The idea for the turkey is almost exactly like the . . . → Read More: Super Foods Friday #5: Turkey Stuffed with Goat Cheese & Walnuts with a Blueberry-Port Sauce
