Simple Italian Tomato Salad…Buono!

YOU CAN’T RUSH A DELICATE TOMATO SALAD TO THE DINNER TABLE   Italian tomato salad with fresh basil is a summer must-have dish for any BBQ party. You’ll have an empty dish to take home and your guests will rave about how amazing the flavours were in your tomato salad and want the simple recipe. If you’re looking for a salad alternative besides greens this simple Italian tomato salad will do the trick every time. Both my wife and I live for this salad every summer which is one of the reasons we grow so much basil in our planters.

You can 100% taste the difference when you bite into a juicy organic tomato rather than the over-grown, tasteless tomatoes you can buy at the grocery store. Even though they have organic options we both gravitate towards the home gardener who has an abundance of tomatoes like her father. Every year he plants about 100 tomato plants and thousands of organic garlic bulbs for the family. It’s a fun hobby for him since he’s retired and we all get to […]

Margherita Pizza

ONE OF THE BEST PIZZAS YOU WILL MAKE   I haven’t met many people who say they aren’t fans of pizza and today I’m going to make your mouth water with what I call my Margherita Pizza. There isn’t a gathering that I’ve held or been to where I’ve made this pizza where friends and family are wanting the recipe. Now, they won’t have to ask as my secret Margherita recipe will be shared here today and available forever. What I love about making homemade pizza is that my family can get involved and we all enjoy creating a custom pizza that we will all enjoy. No one says a pizza has to be topped with just mozzarella and pepperoni. Don’t worry if you don’t have round pizza baking sheets or any mad dough throwing pizza skills either. I make my pizza in square pans and cut them into squares and you know what? They taste the same as if it were shaped like a round pizza pie.   Pizza any day   If I do say so myself nothing beats pizza whether it’s on a weekday or a Friday night and I’ve even had the pleasure to eat pizza […]

Fettuccine with Tomato,Garlic, Lemon, Basil Sauce

Fettuccine pasta is one of my favourite pasta recipes especially when I create a fresh tomato, lemon, basil sauce, which is an easy pasta sauce to make. When I’m not in the mood to cook a big meal for the evening or to get into anything too fancy I turn to this pasta dish. No only does it have fresh ingredients it one of those 30 minute meals that you just can’t complain about. Meatless Recipe This is a meatless pasta dish because we don’t tend to eat meat every single night of the week as that would weigh heavy on the grocery budget. Meatless meals are great to include in your weekly meal plan as they really do take no effort at all to create and you can make them very tasty. A small portion of pasta mixed with a lovely tomato salad on the side is the perfect meal for 2 or for a family with hungry kids. Sometimes when I’m in the mood for something with some meat I’ll make it a sausage fettuccine or add some fresh shrimp to make a shrimp fettuccine pasta dish. As long as you have the base of the sauce and […]
