A Fresh Summer Omelet

Omelets are one of my favorite quick, go-to meals whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner. They are often my dinner choice whenever I am home alone at dinner time.   Recently, I made this yummy, summery, cheese omelet that highlights the fresh garden vegetables available in the summer.   The Grilled Corn and Tomato Relish paired with the eggs and cheese introduced a fresh pop of flavor that I loved.  I hope you will love it, too.

Cut the kernels from the cob and save them to make this relish.  

A Summer Tomato Side Dish from the Grill

As tomatoes become plentiful you may be looking for some tasty recipes. This grilled tomato recipe is wonderful because it can be made ahead of time.  Grilled marinated tomatoes can be served hot, cold, or at room temperature.  What's better than that? There is nothing like a summer tomato.  If you are anything like me you anxiously await the arrival of local tomatoes at your grocery store or farmers market.  This year I have a generous homegrown harvest from my backyard garden.

My Favorite Brownie Recipe

Are you a brownie lover?  There's a continual battle between brownies and chocolate chip cookies for the top spot on my favorite sweet treat list.  I've been testing brownie recipes for years to find the one that is my ultimate brownie.  This is the recipe that I go to time and time again.

Kicked Up Pimento Cheese

As a Northerner who has been visiting the South with some frequency, I have been introduced to pimento cheese.  Also known as Southern caviar, pimento cheese is available at every Southern grocery store deli counter I have frequented.  Of course, I had to sample some...over and over again!
