Cilantro Pesto

Cilantro Pesto Sauce

  Basil does not have a lock on pesto. Pesto can be made with any number of herbs, nuts and green vegetables. In this case, cilantro and pepitas (pumpkin seeds) take the lead in this Cilantro Pesto Sauce. While the flavor profile of this pesto is very different than basil pesto, it can be used in […]

Simple Salsa Verde

Simple Salsa Verde

Salsa verde = green sauce. The name is as simple as this recipe. The name may be simple but the complexity of the flavor is not. Roast. Puree. Pour. Eat. Roasting tomatillos, onion, garlic and jalapeno changes and deepens the flavors of these vegetables and aromatics. It softens the harsh edges of the jalapeno and […]

Fresh Spring Salads

    Spring time is here! Some of my favorite fresh vegetables and herbs are showing up in the farmer’s markets and grocery stores everywhere.

Corned Beef Step-by-Step Tutorial

Corned beef is one of those foods that has gotten marginalized due to its association with Saint Patrick’s Day. For many people, the only time they eat corned beef is in March. And that is a shame, as corned beef is a truly great meat, in my opinion. Of course, if you live in a […]

Blue Spice Basil and Key Lime Mojito | Black Girl Chef's Whites

Blue Spice Basil and Key Lime Mojito

    I love a good mojito. It is probably at the top of my list of cocktails I imbibe occasionally. When I was a younger gal, I would always order a vodka martini, very dry, with an olive.  I could toss back a couple of those no problem. Well, maybe an occasional problem when […]

The Spicy Thai | Black Girl Chef's Whites

This is not a recipe for the kids.  This is a spicy, sweet and intoxicating cocktail infused with the flavors of Thai cooking, hence the name The Spicy Thai! I love experimenting with herbal infusions in cocktails, and this is my latest experiment.  The Blue Spice Basil and Key Lime Mojito is a refreshing rum […]

The Lemony Cricket Cocktail

A great cocktail is a wonderful thing. I have been making my own limoncello for the last year, since my Meyer lemon trees produce huge amounts of fruit twice a year. Friends and neighbors start calling when they know those lemons are getting ripe, and we give away bags full of lemons, but I still […]
