Summer Vegetable Cavatelli with Fresh Corn “Cream” – Corn Not Cows!

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John)

There’s a restaurant near us that features a burrata-filled tortellini, served in a cream sauce fortified with fresh, sweet corn. It’s a wonderful dish, and was the inspiration for this simple, summer vegetable cavatelli.


I was going to use reduced cream, with fresh, pureed corn stirred in at the end, but then I had a thought. What if skipped the dairy altogether, and made the sauce 100% cob-based? I was also out of cream.

So, I blended the fresh corn with some chicken broth, and ended up with what looked like corn milk. At first, I thought I’d made it too …read more

Turkish Chicken Kebabs – Expect More

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John)

I’d like to think that all the chicken coming off American grills this summer will be as tasty, juicy, and tender, as these Turkish chicken kebabs, but I know better. This has nothing to do with cooking skills, or quality of grills, but rather the unremarkable residue of low expectations.


People simply don’t expect much from their grilled chicken, and that’s exactly what they get. They use too little seasoning, and way too much time on the grill, followed by the inevitable barbecue sauce cover-up. Sure, the chicken was dry, but at least we couldn’t taste it.

It doesn’t have …read more

Creamy lentil and aubergine stack

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche

Creamy lentil and aubergine stack - simple to make, easy to stack, and very fun to knock over!

I’m on a total puy lentil kick at the moment. Ever since I discovered the little sachets of pre-cooked lentils, I can’t get enough. They’re like healthy convenience food. My excuse is that it’s pretty hard to find the dried kind here, otherwise I’d boil them myself.

But even if you can’t get the sachets of pre-cooked lentils, you can still make this lentil and aubergine stack. Just boil your lentils as you usually would, then cook the recipe as written. You can even use leftover lentils from the previous night’s dinner if …read more

http://www.celiaccentral.org/non-celiac-gluten-sensitivity/testing-and-diagnosis/

http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/wheat-allergy/basics/tests-diagnosis/con-20031834

According to medicine literature and what my wonderful nutritionist has said there are various tests that you can do:

1. traditional allergy skin test: this test will probaly not detect it unless extremly allergic

2. Blood test: can lead to false positive or a diagnosis of “sestiveness”when your really a Celiac

3. Intestinal Test: they take a sample of your intestine linning to see if it reacts

4. food experiment: a two week to a month allergen free diet, eat something that has gluten in it to see reaction. keep a food diary.

5. Gene test: the test that will most certainly confirm your gluten …read more

Cheesy Baked Zucchini Noodle Casserole

By Elise

Zucchini Noodle Casserole

You know what my favorite kitchen gadget is this summer? A spiralizer, or a spiral vegetable slicer. It’s basically a lathe that lets you turn a cylindrical vegetable such as a zucchini or sweet potato, into “noodles”, or in the case of zucchini, “zoodles”.

I love pasta as much as anyone, but the truth is my body will not cooperate and let me eat as much pasta as I want without undesired consequences. So, the idea of making noodles with zucchini? Tempting, but could it possibly be as good as pasta?

This ham and cheese pie are made with ham and brie, making them the perfect savory hand pie for a meal or just a fun snack!

“Let’s do a guys night out!” I said to my friend Peter and Hadley one weekend while we were up in Sonoma. For most people, a phrase like that would invoke scenes of drunken revelry, picking up women and hijinks that are not suitable for a blog of this nature. But I meant an evening of shopping, a movie of Hadley’s choice (which ended up being Magic Mike XXL) and dinner out. In …read more

Salads aren’t very sexy. I mean, they’re kind of in a revival stage, but when you tell someone you’ve just had the best salad, you’re usually met with (at least I am) a blank uninterested face. Start talking about barbecue…
