Arancini with Tomatoes + Peas

I have always been a big fan of arancini, I love a tomato based risotto stuffed with Bolognese then fried to a crisp but tender, cheesy bite of love! You may see them on the menu as arancini, rice balls, risotto balls, or suppli-- the difference is still a debate for me but I've never met one I didn't like! I like to make the risotto + filling one day, then shape + bread them the next. This way, you can either freeze them after breading for another day, or fry immediately. You can certainly make these smaller as well, I was feeling generous.

Candied Blueberry Bacon Bread Twists

I have been wanting to make bacon bread twists since I saw a version of them on Half Baked Harvest. We made candied bacon with SKORDO Blueberry Pork Rub for an event two years ago and I kid you not, people went nuts over them!

Spicy Sautéed Shiitakes

This recipe from Vegetable Simple by Eric Ripert is a great staple to have on hand for snacks or sides. From start to finish it truly only takes 5 minutes! I used dried mushrooms, and finished with SKORDO Sriracha Sea Salt + SKORDO Herbes de Provence, these are all pantry staples for me so this was perfect.

Smashed Cucumber with Tahini and Everything Chile Oil

Smashed Cucumber with Tahini and Everything Chile Oil

"A surprising juxtaposition of texture and flavor -- fresh, palate-cleansing cucumbers paired with an earthy sesame dressing, enlivened by a daring spicy oil." - Hetty McKinnon, To Asia, With Love

This simple salad is great to serve as a snack or as a side to a bowl of noodles. Smashing the cucumbers tenderizes them, while a sprinkling of salt delivers a lovely pickle-like quality. It was delicious!

Broiled Greek Tomatoes

Broiled Greek Tomatoes

Talk about simple... Broiled tomatoes are a classic side dish in Greece (and much of Europe for that matter). This recipe is great for any time of the year. We topped our tomatoes with SKORDO Greek Seasoning, a natural pairing. Use it as a base recipe with your favorite seasoning, see variation ideas in note below.

Grilled Mexican Street Corn (Elote) with Adobo Seasoning

Grilled Mexican Street Corn (Elote) with Adobo Seasoning

Elotes are the best way to eat corn. Big statement, but I stand by it. The sweet corn topped with aromatic Adobo Spice Blend (Mexican oregano, freshly ground cumin, and more), mayonnaise, lime juice, and cotija cheese is a combination we can't get enough of. We make this close to once a week in the summer - it's so easy!

Strawberry + Tomato Salad with Sizzled Mustard Seed Halloumi

Strawberry + Tomato Salad with Sizzled Mustard Seed Halloumi

This recipe is from the new cookbook Cook This Book, written by Molly Baz (of Bon Appetit's YouTube fame). With a massive chapter on Salads and Molly Baz's self-proclaimed love for Caesar salads, we had high expectations. The whole family loved it! We will definitely be making it again this summer. It was fresh, flavorful, and unique. Her recipe calls for peaches but we couldn't get our hands on them this early in the season in Maine so we substituted strawberries.

Chargrilled Summer Vegetables with a Dhana-Jeera Dressing

Chargrilled Summer Vegetables with a Dhana-Jeera Dressing

Every year, as soon as it is warm enough outside, we fire up the grillI love grilled veggies and was so excited to find a great base recipe in Meera Sodha's cookbook East: 120 Vegan and Vegetarian Recipes from Bangalore to Beijing. We used SKORDO's Thai Seasoning to spice up our dressing without a lot of additional heat for the perfect balance.

Roasted Eggplant with Curried Yogurt

Roasted Eggplant with Curried Yogurt

We spent three weeks cooking dinner nearly every evening from the cookbook  Ottolenghi Simple... read our cookbook review here. This was such a delicious bite! Roasted slices of eggplant with layers of flavor and texture on top. We paired it with another recipe from the book, an herbed cauliflower salad. Fresh, flavorful, and filling.

Baked Feta with Oregano, Thyme, + Rosemary

Baked Feta with Oregano, Thyme, + Rosemary

This is a delicious recipe combining the briny, salty flavors of feta with mediterranean herbs and, in our case, sun-dried tomatoes and mixed Greek olives. If you don't like olives or sun-dried tomatoes, try roasting with tomatoes instead. Delicious!
