Cool Crisp Delicious

A Take on Tzatziki

I have a hard time with recipes. Generally, i take a quick look then make it up as I go — most likely it’s a matter of ingredients that I actually have in the house, and sheer laziness of measuring and checking the recipe. This one is a combination of the following:

  • About a cup of Greek Yogurt (plain, non-fat)

  • 1-2 Tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • Pinch Salt and Pepper

  • Garlic clove minced

  • Red onion minced (1-2 slices)

  • 2-3 squeezes of lemon juice

Mix it up — and ready to go. I may enough to last a few days and use it for burritos, chicken dishes… anything to add a nice cool bite and add some healthy flavor.

(I didn't take a picture, so I included my friend’s cat because she is adorable. Happy Cooking!)

Return of the "Cook"!

Hello my blog friends, I have not stopped “cooking” but I did take a hiatus from blogging. I’ve missed sharing my latest triumphs along with my epic concoctions that have gone horribly awry (but I still eat or drink because I refused to throw away food… or money!)

So why not return on Thanksgiving — when the nation turns to food. Much gratitude this year for continuing this cooking adventure. Today I’m going to post one of my favorite breakfasts. Simple. Pretty. Healthy. And the place just makes me happy: hardboiled egg, bright green, nicely ripe avocado, fresh raspberries. A good amount of cayenne pepper over the egg — maybe a few drops of extra virgin olive oil and voila! Yum.

Coming soon… Bronx run for the best chicken cutlets in the town.


Simple cooking

A go-to staple of yum. Chopped chicken breast, sautéed in extra virgin olive oil, with white onions, garlic, salt and pepper. I don't overcook the onions so they are still crunchy, then add spinach, sundries tomatoes. I save the best for last: a generous amount of capers to give each bite a bold taste.
