I love unexpected flavor combinations, don’t you? Strawberries and tomatoes aren’t the most likely pair, but they actually complement each other rather nicely. The folks at Driscoll’s contacted me last month with a fun summer challenge that I just couldn’t resist. They asked if I could create a savory recipe using their amazing strawberries. I just loved the…

Nick’s restaurant here in Long Beach features a similar salad that I literally crave, but paying $17 for a salad as often as I have the craving for it just doesn’t make sense. So, I created my own version, now I can…

Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

If there is one type of dessert that falls into the comfort food category for me it would have to be chocolate chip cookies. Honestly, I can’t think of any sweet treats that you could offer me that I would turn down a classic chocolate chip cookie for except maybe a slice of one of these Deep…
