I have another fabulous seafood recipe for you guys today! Actually, what makes this recipe really delicious is the Lemon Basil Butter – and you will love how easy it to make. It is fabulous on this dish – but just think of all the others it would be good on as well. I served our dinner with my Tropical Quinoa Salad – dinner was light and full of protein
I have a nice and easy recipe for you guys today. It is for Cola Pulled Pork Sandwiches and it uses one of my favorite things…The Crock Pot! I love that this recipe is easy to get together and easy to make a double batch of to freeze
I love Salmon. I will admit that it is one of those fish that some folks either love or hate…but I think it’s all in how you cook it! I have been trying out different, healthy recipes for us and salmon and we have really been enjoying them. I hope you are too Most recently we made Oven Baked Salmon with a light and easy lemon sauce.
Ask Award-Winning Cook Kristina Vanni YOUR Questions! #AskPompeian
I wanted to let you know about an upcoming program with Pompeian Olive Oil and award-winning cook Kristina Vanni called #AskPompeian.
Hunter PR recently surveyed 1,000 Americans asking when they’d be most likely be trying new recipes and the results were interesting:
33% of people are most likely to try a new recipe on Saturday
38% of consumers are most likely to try making a new recipe between 3pm-5pm
and 52% are most likely to try a new recipe when cooking for themselves
So from 3pm-5pm for the next three Saturdays (July 12, 19, 26) Kristina Vanni, check out her blog here , will be taking over the @PompeianOils Twitter handle to answer consumers questions about recipes, from how to perfect the one dish they’ve been working on to what type of olive oil works best for a Cobb salad.
How fun is that? Access to an AWARD-WINNING cook to answer YOUR questions! Make sure to mark your calendars!
I have a delicious Salmon recipe to share with you guys today. We have used this Root Beer Glaze on filet and on ham and it has always been a hit. Well, recently we received Fresh Copper Ricer Salmon from Anderson Seafoods for review and we thought the Root Beer Glaze would be fabulous on it…and we were right :) The best part is that it is very easy to make…and Salmon is very healthy for you!
Salmon - we used Fresh Copper River Salmon from Anderson Seafoods
Dash of salt and pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil
12 oz Root Beer
12 oz Beef Broth - we used the Lower Sodium
Place the Root Beer and Beef Broth in a large pan and simmer for about 1 hour - *You will notice that when starts to reduce quickly - you will have to watch it almost constantly!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Place the salmon skin-side down in a baking dish
Lightly drizzle the olive oil over the salmon
Sprinkle the salt and pepper over the salmon
Bake for 20 minutes or until flaky
Top with Root Beer Glaze
Serve with fresh vegetables - I made honey-roasted carrots
This is what the glaze will actually cook down to, so it will go from the 24 oz to this very small amount! As I mentioned in the recipe – make sure to watch it very closely when it starts to reduce quickly – you don’t want to burn it!

I have an amazingly easy…and delicious dessert recipe for you guys today. The 4th of July is right around the corner – and whether you are having a gathering at your house or heading out to one, a yummy dessert is always a good item to have for everyone to enjoy. I really like this Pineapple Angel Food Cake recipe because it is also low fat, in fact it’s even an Weight Watchers approved recipe
As you can see, it only takes TWO main ingredients! It doesn’t get much easier than that folks! I went to Target and grabbed Del Monte Pineapple Tidbits in 100% juice, some peaches for garnish and a box of Angel Food Cake mix and I was on my way to a making dessert. I love that this recipe calls for canned pineapple. The canning process locks in the nutrients at the peak of ripeness – just hours after picking, so I know that my Pineapple Angel Food cake will be the best :) And if for some reason I don’t feel like making it right away, I can easily put the cans in the pantry for another day and I don’t have to worry about the pineapple going bad.
Plus, have you seen the price of pineapple at the produce stand – if you are lucky you can get one for about $4…my Del Monte Canned Pineapple in 100% Juice was under $1.50! In fact, my whole dessert cost me about what the price of one pineapple would cost.
I know I have told you guys that I am loving all the beautiful produce that we are now seeing in stores, and my buddy Christie made a delicious and EASY Stuffed Tomato recipe this week that I thought you guys would like too
Have you ever made stuffed tomatoes? What is your favorite stuffings? I know lots of folks out there make stuffed peppers, but those tomatoes just look beautiful! Make sure to let me know if you try this one
