  • 30 Spears of Asparagus
  • 1-2/3 Cups Vinegar
  • ⅔ Cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp Coarse Salt

21 Tips for “Tastes of Summer”

July2016_NationalGrillingMonth

  1. When grilling an assortment of summer vegetables, try to cut them as uniformly thick as possible. This ensures they cook evenly and makes for a better presentation when serving.
  2. Another tip when grilling fresh vegetables is to cut them so that the maximum amount of surface area is exposed. The more surface area exposed to the grill grates, the better the taste will be.
  1. Want a perfect rim on your margarita glasses? Try this: Instead of dipping your dampened glasses straight down into a plate of coarse salt, sugar, or other mixture, moisten only the outside of the glass. Then, roll the dampened outer edge of each glass at a 45-degree angle around the plate. This will create a nice looking rim, but will keep the salt or sugar from getting into the drink and affecting its taste.
  2. Next time you make peach or other fruit cobbler, break out of the “plain-old-vanilla-ice-cream” routine. Instead try pairing your creation with ice cream flavored with the same ingredients as the recipe itself. For my warm peach cobbler recipe, try cinnamon or peach ice cream. ‘Salted Caramel with Pecan’ is another great choice because it brings out the tiny hint of saltiness found in the recipe.
  3. Did you know that not all sweet potatoes are orange? It’s true. Some varieties have a light yellow or almost white color instead. Although they look more like typical white potatoes than their orange-fleshed siblings, they don’t taste anything like a traditional baking potato. However, they aren’t identical to their orange counterparts, either. They are a little less sweet and a bit more starchy than “normal” sweet potatoes.
  4. Mini sweet peppers are great for snacking on right out of the bag, but they are even better when stuffed with your favorite blend of cheeses, fresh thyme and bacon. Pop under the broiler for about 5 minutes or until nicely browned and voila! You have a perfect warm and delicious appetizer in less than 15 minutes.
  5. It’s easy to take basic lemonade to a whole new level with some quick and easy tweaks. Instead of making a basic simple syrup of 1 part water to 1 part white sugar, try adding some chopped lemongrass and fresh, peeled gingerroot into the saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 25-30 minutes. Cool slightly before straining to remove solids. Use the cooled infused syrup to sweeten lemonade to taste.
  6. Many popular culinary herbs are available in citrus varieties and can be used to add an extra dimension to your recipes. Lemon balm, basil, thyme, mint, and lemongrass are popular and readily available examples. Choosing citrus varieties of herbs will allow you to add another subtle layer of flavor to your dishes.
  7. Speaking of lemongrass, it is very easy to grow from seed and can act as a pretty ornamental in your garden, as well. Because it is from the tropics, it won’t survive cold winters in northern areas. However, it can reach 3-5 feet in height in a single growing season, so be sure to give it ample room to grow.
  8. Lemongrass is a popular ingredient in many Thai recipes. Different parts of the plant have different uses: The base of each stem has a strong lemony flavor ideal for infusing simple syrups or cooking oils, while the more tender leaves are great for making tea or soups.
  9. Fresh herbs are abundant during the warmer summer months so it makes sense to pair them with season’s most popular cooking method. Herb salts and compound butter are 2 super easy ways to add extra flavor to grilled meats and vegetables. Simply combine chopped fresh herbs with either salt or soft butter. Be creative! Add some fresh citrus zest to salt combos for even more flavor variations
  10. Salt-cured lemons are great to have on hand because there are so many ways to use them. Preserving slices of fresh lemon between 2 slabs of Himalayan salt greatly intensifies the natural citrus flavor by reducing the water content while simultaneously infusing the slices with salt. The result is a concentrated, briny treasure that is perfect in pasta dishes or wherever you want to add an unexpected intense “pop” of flavor and seasoning.
  11. Himalayan salt blocks are very versatile kitchen tools that can be used to cook, chill, cure, or serve food. Caution should be exercised when using the blocks with heat, however. The blocks may contain small amounts of moisture inside that can cause them to break or even explode when heated. It is very important to follow directions carefully and temper salt blocks over moderate heat before placing them in a hot oven.
  12. When selecting a Himalayan salt block for heat applications, be sure to choose one that is “cooking grade.” Also, look for one that has a minimal amount of pattern to it. The gorgeous grain pattern that makes for a beautiful presentation block becomes a liability in the oven. Each striation indicates a fissure or potential weakness that could cause the block to break apart or explode when heated.
  13. Technique is everything when using Himalayan salt blocks to cure, cook or serve food. It’s easy to end up with overly salted foods if you aren’t careful. For example, when serving watermelon and feta salad on a salt plate, arrange the watermelon slices so that only a small portion of the exposed surface area is in direct contact with the salt. This will give a perfect hint of salty flavor without overpowering the entire bite.
  14. Unlike red meats that can be seared on the outside and rare-to-medium on the inside, pork needs to be more uniformly cooked throughout. When grilling, a medium, direct heat is the best way to ensure the inside cooks evenly with the outside.
  15. The pork available today is a lot leaner than it was a couple generations ago. This means it can dry out quickly if overcooked. For years, pork was always served well done due to fears of trichinosis. As a result, an entire generation grew up believing tasteless, dry pork was the norm! However, in 2011 the USDA dropped the recommended internal cooking temperature of pork down to 145 F – a full 15-degree drop from previous recommendations.  This means it is now okay to serve pork that is still juicy and a little pink inside. Just be sure to use an instant-read thermometer to confirm the meat has reached a safe internal temperature before serving.
  16. Warm goat cheese croutons are a great way to make any salad seem more like a full meal. For best results, make sure the croutons are at least ½” thick and not too wide across or they are more likely to break apart while handling. Also, be sure to get the oil hot enough before frying them, because they need to cook quickly or the goat cheese will start seeping out of the crust.
  17. Most recipes for warm goat cheese croutons call for using vegetable or canola oil for frying. However, coconut oil is a delicious, healthy alternative that does not infuse the melted cheese or breadcrumb crust with an overbearing coconut flavor.  I highly recommend it.  Learn more about coconut oil here:  http://www.mywildtree.com/pws/wendywilkes/tabs/coconut-oil.aspx
  18. No ice cream maker? No problem! It is possible to make creamy, delicious ice cream at home without buying special equipment. The base for the ‘Salted Caramel and Pecan Ice Cream’ consists of just 2 simple ingredients: sweetened condensed milk and heavy whipping cream.
  19. Want to enjoy raw kale outside of juices and smoothies? Although the tough, somewhat bitter leaves can be a bit unappealing raw, there is a simple fix for that. Simply massage each leaf with olive, sesame or other oil until they become more tender. Then enjoy kale in mixed green salads just like you would any green, leafy lettuce.                                                                                                                                                                                   Enter your email address to subscribe to this Blog                                                                                                        Join my Recipe Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/StirThePotRecipes/                                              Come and get healthy with us:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/Fit4LifeWithWendy/Are you wanting to try a product that is all natural and can help you on your weight loss journey?  Money back guarantee.  Learn more here:  http://Wendyweighsin.SBC90DayChallenge.com     cropped-Screenshot_2016-05-18-13-52-35_wm-1-1.jpg

Citrusy Cauliflower Kale Summer Salad

CauliflowerKale_3

Citrusy Cauliflower Kale Summer Salad
 
Without question, the addition of the salt-cured lemon slices is what elevates this recipe from bland to grand. The bright, briny flavor of the preserved lemon adds a fresh burst of flavor . The lemons are really easy to make by pressing fresh lemon slices between 2 Himalayan salt blocks. Allow 2 days for the salt blocks to work their magic and you will be rewarded with a very tasty treat you’ll reach for again and again.
Ingredients
  • Salad:
  • 1 small zucchini, washed, cut in half and uniformly sliced
  • 1 small yellow squash, washed, cut in half and uniformly sliced
  • 1 head cauliflower, washed and trimmed, florets only
  • 1 head broccoli, washed and trimmed, florets only
  • 4 kale leaves, stems and ribs removed, washed and torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 T. olive oil
  • 12 grape tomatoes, washed and cut in half lengthwise
  • 6-8 large fresh basil leaves, washed, rolled and cut into thin strips
  • 4-6 salt-cured organic lemon slices, very finely chopped including rinds
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries [optional]
  • Vinaigrette:
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 T. rice vinegar
  • 1 T. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 t. lemon zest
  • 2 t. honey
  • 2 t. Dijon mustard
  • Kosher salt and cracked black pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. In a glass bowl, combine all vinaigrette ingredients and whisk until thoroughly combined. If possible, make in advance to allow the flavors to mingle. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired. Set aside.
  2. Place zucchini, squash, cauliflower, and broccoli in a large microwave-safe dish and add 2 T. water. Cover and microwave on high for about 5 or 6 minutes, or until crisp tender. Cook times will vary by microwave, so test after 3 minutes and adjust cook time accordingly. Do not overcook. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a large glass bowl, add torn kale and drizzle with olive oil. With your fingers, massage each piece of kale with your fingers until the olive oil is worked into the leaf. This will soften the kale and improve its taste. Add cooled zucchini, squash, cauliflower, broccoli, tomatoes, basil, chopped preserved lemon and cranberries to bowl. Toss to combine. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to two days.
  4. Right before serving, add desired amount of citrus vinaigrette and toss to coat thoroughly. Add salt and pepper to taste.

5 Ways To Focus Your Energy Towards Your Well-being

5 Ways To Focus Your Energy Towards Your Well-being
When you take better care of yourself and your body, it will boost your well-being rather quickly. Eating well and exercising will provide benefits that can be seen almost instantly, helping the mind and body to manage virtually any difficulty that you may face, which includes depression and anxiety.
In addition to providing nourishment for your body and participating in physical activities that you enjoy, there are a number of other ways that your mental health and overall well-being can be improved, as well, which are highlighted here.
Accept the Emotions You Experience
There are some people who would make the argument that the majority of your physical, relational and mental issues come from the inability to be able to experience your emotions. Rather than experiencing them, you medicate, rationalize, project, bury, deny, smother, drink away, suck it up or sweep unpleasant emotions under the rug. The emotions that are most often avoided include fear, anger and sadness.
If you put more energy into avoiding emotions, rather than feeling them, you are going to feel stressed and suffer anxiety. Take an active role in letting your guard down and feeling emotions.

download (5)
Take Risks Everyday
It is a good idea to create a routine and structure; however, this can also cause you to become stuck in a rut. This means that you are not growing as a person. Taking a certain number of risks can be both rewarding and healthy.
Take some time to challenge yourself and take a risk every single day. This can mean talking to a new person, trusting someone, asserting yourself or setting some type of tough goal. The key is to push yourself beyond your comfort zone.

download (7)
Live in the Moment
There are a number of mental health trends that become challenged when a person gets sucked into what happened in the past or what people “did to you” rather than actually taking responsibility of  what you are doing or creating the present moment, right this second. The key is to live in the moment, without hyper focusing on the past or the future.

Be Introspective
It is important to avoid just coasting through your life without taking the time to assess yourself. For example, you need to ask yourself often if you are in denial regarding anything or if you are resisting something in your life. It is also a good idea to take a step back and consider where your behaviors and feelings are coming from. You may ask yourself the question “Is this thought helpful? Is the behavior needed? Is there another option?”

Laugh Daily
In many situations, people take themselves much too seriously. If you need proof, consider the following. Kids laugh about 200 times a day and adults, only 15 times a day. In order to laugh more, go see a funny movie, play a funny game or just enjoy life. Taking the time to laugh more will not only help you feel better and be happier, it can also make you younger.
