A Week in the Kitchen with Carol



Wow! Welcome to summer! This time of the year is great for family gatherings, celebrations, and vacations. Mother' Day, Father's Day, baby showers, graduations, weddings, births, and I've experienced them all over the last month. It was such a whirlwind of activity. To top it off, next week is the Fourth of July. It's another great opportunity to get together with family and friends. There's just something about sharing a great meal, playing games in the back yard or going to the community pool, and then watching fireworks together. Isn't summer the greatest?!

 

Have you voted in our poll on the 30 Day Gourmet Facebook® fan page? We're getting to work on our next ebooks and we would like to know which topics interest you the most. Vote for your favorite or make your own suggestion. Voting will end on July 5, 2012.

 

 

I've also posted several recipes that I have been testing on the 30 Day Gourmet Facebook® fan page. Make sure you check out the Notes area if you want to try some of the recipes yourself before they are officially published on our web site.

 

Mango Lime Pork Chops

I've never tried Caribbean Citrus Seasoning before. It was very good on pork chops. It's spicy but we really enjoyed the flavor. Give it a try! (The seasoning is also very good on salmon.)

 

 

Southwestern Black Bean Salad

Summer is great and I love corn cooked on the grill. It's so easy and it tastes so good! This recipe is a fun way to use left over corn (or frozen corn will work in a pinch!). I serve it on a bed of lettuce with grilled chicken. You can also serve it with chicken quesadillas.

Bonus Recipes



It has been so HOT here so far this summer! They are predicting high 90's for today and over 100 degrees for the next several days. That's just too hot for me and too hot to cook in the kitchen. I've been trying to make as meals as possible on the grill, in the microwave, or in the slow cooker.

Some of my favorites are grilled corn on the cob, grilled fresh vegetables, grill fries, and Flatbread Pizza. Here two of my new favorites that we have added to our summer menu. Enjoy!

Fish Tacos

This is a delicious recipe! The recipe calls for Southwest seasoning. I used Penzeys but you could also try Pampered Chef, McCormick, or Mrs. Dash. It was spicy but not too spicy. I served it on flour tortillas with cheddar cheese, salsa, tomatoes, lettuce.

 
   
     
Sweet Potato Fries Seasoning Mix

It's great to have homemade seasoning mixes on hand. This recipe is wonderful! One recipe will make enough seasoning mix for 3 lbs. of sweet potatoes. One pound of sweet potatoes will serve 3 to 4 people. Use about 4-1/2 t. of seasoning mix per pound of sweet potatoes.
