Italian Salsa

Friday, June 21, 2019
Italian style salsa is a favorite in our home.


Being I am a huge fan of salsa, Italian and allergic to the onion vegetable family, I made an Italian style salsa we all love here with all garlic!


This is a dieters delight and has vitamins and perfect for the health conscious lifestyle.


Served with all fresh herbs and chopped vegetables, this will be great all summer long.


We love to serve this at a picnic and don't have to worry about all the creamy things in a dip that can spoil and get you sick in the hot summer heat.


Living here in Florida, this is perfect for a dinner party appetizer.


You can add anything you like to your dipping salsa vegetable wise keeping it chunky.

Grilled Hawaiian Pork Chops

Sunday, June 16, 2019
This is a wonderful tropical tasting dish actually we had in Hawaii on a trip we took back in 2003.


The pineapple and peppers along with this amazing marinade for these boneless pork chops are drool-worthy.


You won't be able to wait when you smell them cooking to eat them.


Grilled pork is wonderful, but even if you have to cook them indoors, they're still fantastic, just use a grided cast iron skillet.


Pineapple with that little bit of sweetness gives you the taste of the tropical island flair.


I just love this recipe for this grilled Hawaiian pork chops and it sure reminds me of our fabulous fun times in Hawaii.


I recreated it best I could and it really is almost exactly what we remembered!


It sure gives me a nice feeling to have that taste etched in my mind of those beautiful memories of Maui, and hope you enjoy this easy delicious way to cook pork chops on the grill.


Scroll down to the recipe card to give this great grilled recipe a try this summer.

Italian Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Saturday, June 15, 2019

Just when you think you had the best ever recipe for cabbage rolls, then another one comes along like this one.


These are so easy, I have a secret I have been using for years to share today with you.


Once you try my secret, you will never think these are time-consuming again and make them in no time.


It's a foolproof time saver for sure.


We just love cabbage rolls, but when I started out cooking, I never wanted to try them, they look way too complicated.


One day I met an elderly wonderful lady named Amelia, that taught me this trick and it's now over 30 years and making them often without feeling it's a chore!


Not going to give you that secret yet though, check out my recipe card at the end to print this off.


Please let me know what you think of the recipe in the comments.
