Gourmet Steak Pizza

Gourmet Steak Pizza

on Cheese, Herb & Garlic Mini Focaccia

Posted on June 15, 2016
If you’re creative enough just about anything can become pizza. Gourmet Steak Pizza on Cheese, Herb & Garlic Mini Focaccia proves that. I used very fresh ingredients for this recipe, and you can taste the difference. The tomatoes served as the sauce instead of using a traditional tomato sauce. I did this because I didn’t want to top the cheesy goodness of the fresh herbed focaccia with anything that would mask its delicious flavor. Instead, I enhanced the delicate herb and cheese flavor by adding succulent steak slices and red onion.

Cucumber Salad

Cucumber Salad

with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Posted on April 14, 2016
My fantastic grandmother served this salad one evening with dinner. Cucumber Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette is supremely light, and packs a flavor punch that you are not expecting. Adding the onion and carrots elevates this side from possibly pickles to positively divine. It is unexpected and fresh. It would make a great topping for a turkey or veggie burger, or perfect for pretty much any meal where you need a quick and light side.
