While Spicy Peanut Sauce isn't exactly a 'traditional' family dish of ours, it has become a family favorite.
One of our favorite pasta salads is this light Mediterranean version. The feta cheese gives it that tangy burst of flavor when it's combined with the vinaigrette. The cucumber lightens the load while the pepperoncini ads a dose of slight spiciness and sweetness. It's the perfect salad to pack in to a mason jar and take on a picnic, or you can prepare a larger amount for a summer cookout.
It wasn't until this year when potato salad was revolutionized for me once again, and this time even my family decided they loved it. I was at the Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge for my birthday and had dinner at this restaurant called Boma - Flavors of Africa and they had a curry potato salad tat knocked my tasted buds off!
When it's time to celebrate, no other food is more fabulous than the hot dog! The toppings and flavor combinations are limitless. Here are a few of our favorites!
Traditional recipes aren't always passed down just from family members. Meals between friends, or in this case a Church Choir, are sometimes even more memorable. I discovered this while making this recipe with my Mother this week.
Simple combination salads are perfect for summer picnics. They are easily pre-made and transportable in mason jars and can be shared or enjoyed individually. The key to creating these salads is using fresh, in-season, summer ingredients, tossed lightly with a simple oil, vinegar, and herb dressing.
Creating an apple and cheddar cheese bake seemed like a no brainer dish to make. I eat sliced apple with cheese or peanut butter or Nutella on a daily basis for a snack. Baked apples are a favorite southern side dish of mine. It wasn't until I gave my Mother a quick call for some tips on extra ingredients to add to this bake, that I learned my Grandfathers favorite dessert was a slice of apple pie topped with melted cheddar cheese.
With the heat of summer quickly approaching, now is the perfect time to use peaches in a cool and refreshing soup like this tree ripened Peachy Keen Soup, dripping with orchard fresh flavor. This sweet summer soup is inexpensive, easy to make, and incredibly versatile. We used it as a cool lunch side dish to go with a sandwich and yogurt, almost like a drink. The chunks of peach in this recipe make it hearty enough for a mid-afternoon snack as well.
Today we are celebrating Cinco de Mayo here at Real Food Real Kitchens by re-visiting an episode from our first season. Our guest Judith and her daughter Judy made a traditional Mexican dish using a Molcajete. It is one that was passed down from Judith’s Mother to her and now on to Judith's children. Watch this 'all in the family' Mexican episode and celebrate Cinco de Mayo with us!
Every year from April to early May, food enthusiasts throughout the Eastern US and Canada go crazy for one simple vegetable known as the Ramp. These leek-like vegetables have an almost cult following, popping up on restaurant menus for just a few shorts weeks every year.
Waking up in the morning can be such a challenge. Finding something quick and easy to eat while on the go is even more of a challenge, especially for people like me who have difficulty functioning before noon.
Real Foods Real Kitchens visited Florida Fields to Forks, a 20 acre farm in Malabar, Florida, that provides local grass-fed and grass-finished beef, pasture raised pork, lamb, chicken and laying hens, wild-caught seafood, produce, and artisan raw milk and cheeses, plus so much more.
If you're like us here at Real Food Real Kitchens, time is something we always lack. One would think that since we are making delicious food all day in the RFRK kitchen that we'd all be pretty well fed. True as that is, if we always ate what we made here in the kitchen, we'd all weigh about 50 extra pounds...
Individual pizzas that everyone can help make.
Try this juicy, raspberry-peach cosmo to kick up the romance.
