Mediterranean Monday – Make Your Own Mebrillo

Membrillo, or quince paste, is a familiar taste treat in Spain. Last night was Spanish “dinner” night in our house. We had beautiful lemon brined olives, almonds, little pan-fried squashes, and this beautiful homemade quince paste served with Manchego cheese. By itself, the quince paste is rich and delicious. But thinly sliced and served over […]

Spanish tortilla

Mediterranean Monday – Spanish Tortilla

A Spanish style potato omelet makes a quick and easy dinner.   Sometimes I just don’t feel like grocery shopping. I know, it’s weird for someone who makes their living with food. But at heart I am a hermit, so there are times when I avoid the grocery store – sometimes for weeks on end. […]

grilled eggplant sandwich

Mediterranean Monday – Grilled Eggplant Sandwich

Grilling eggplant gives it a smoky, meaty flavor.   If you think you don’t like eggplant, this is the recipe to try. It also makes a satisfying Indian summer meal. Sliced eggplant, brushed with olive oil and grilled is entirely different from eggplant in other guises. It’s so good in fact, that even the little […]

Mediterranean style pizza

Mediterranean Monday – Garden Pizza

Homemade pizza topped with zucchini, bell peppers, black olives and walnuts. Mediterranean food at its best! Are you still dealing with zucchini overload? I am. Thus I continue my quest to use zucchini in many ways. The other night it was this yummy pizza (but really, is there any such thing as a bad pizza?) […]

zucchini tomato bread

Golden Semolina Zucchini-Tomato Bread

This bread deliciously combines several Mediterranean flavors, and helps get rid of zucchini overload! It’s that time of year again – zucchini season. I have been following the Mediterranean example and using zucchini in everything; zucchini pie, stuffed zucchini, zucchini pickles, even zucchini brownies. But still, the zucchini keeps coming. I have an especially prolific […]

MIddle Eastern chopped salad

Mediterranean Monday – Middle Eastern Chopped Salad

This mixed vegetable salad, also known as Israeli Salad, is sure to make your “favorites” list! These Mediterranean themed weeks are becoming fast favorites in my house. Last week it was Middle Eastern Week. I had a great time making homemade pita bread, baked falafel, tahini sauce, and a variety of salads. But the best […]
