Cucumber Mint Mojito

Pin It

Almost time for TGIF and this week I have a refreshing tasty beverage that is sure to be a hit with the adult crowd.  This Cucumber Mint Mojito is perfect for summer and you may even be growing some of the ingredients in your garden (no - not the rum silly!)  Just picture yourself sitting on your deck or by a pool with this cool drink in your hand!

Zucchini Fritters

Pin It

The zucchini are coming, the zucchini are coming!  It's that time of year where that ONE plant you have in your garden is exploding with lots of veggies and you need something to do with them!  That's where this recipe of Zucchini Fritters will help you out.  Yep you can make bread, muffins or even a vegetarian lasagna but this side dish is so easy to do and one of my favorite ways to enjoy the mass producing veggie!

Best of the Weekend and Cookies!

Stay Connected with Cooking on the Front Burner

Welcome to Best of the Weekend!  Another week and another time to see what you have been up to!  Is it just me or is time just whizzing by?  It's Monday then it's Friday with the weekends a blur!  This is one of the rare weekends we have no plans... nothing on the calendar.  Would I really would like to do - hint hint DIY Guy - is go see the movie The Hundred Foot Journey (of course it has to do with food!)  I heard it was great - stop by next week so see if I went.

Cannellini Bean Dip

Move over hummus there's a new kid dip in town!  I'm excited on a couple levels - first I'm happy to have a new recipe today - summer has been crazy and haven't had as much time to cook or shoot photos and second this Cannellini Bean Dip is so easy to make and was a hit at a recent dinner party we had.  I don't like hummus but I do like this - go figure!

A Trip to the Farmer's Market

Pin It

Finally!  I made it to our local Farmer's Market this past weekend.  Either we have been out of town, busy around the house, or I have to admit, I've wanted to sleep in on Saturdays...  But this weekend I actually set my alarm, got dressed, made some coffee and away I went.  It was a beautiful day and the local growers were out in full force with their goods.  I brought the camera along to snap some shots and below I'm sharing some of those pictures plus some recipes that are ready for 'picking'!

Best of the Weekend and Back to School Snacks

Stay Connected with Cooking on the Front Burner

What a whirlwind of a week and I'm so glad the weekend is here!  Just coming off a week's vacation which was great but now I need a vacation from my vacation.  Do you know what I mean? Ever feel that way??  Going back to my hometown in upstate NY is a foodie delight!  We ate, at not one but two Italian restaurants.  There is nothing like getting a plate of 'homemades' and a slice of pizza pie!  Then we traveled to the DIY Guy's folks in PA and went to NJ for clams and lobster... oh yea, the diet starts now! 

Enough about me - so glad you are here!  I would be curious to what your hometown is know for food-wise.  Leave me a comment - who knows we may be roaming around the states in the coming years!

You Say It's Your Birthday!

Pin It

Happy Birthday to me!  Since we just got home from a week's vacation yesterday- driving over 2,500 miles in 7 days and visits to my brother's plus an Indians game in Cleveland, my dad's in upstate NY, and John's folks in PA, I've got nothing new for ya! Today's post ran about a month ago and so since it is my birthday today (and 2 days ago it was the DIY Guy's) I'm running this post again - it might be new to some of you and there sure are some tasty treats!!
