What's Cooking in Carolina?

Mainly creative menus and recipes (usually healthy) and always from scratch with tips for party planning, theme parties, weddings and decorating tips so you can give swank parties or dinners to delight your guests from a part time caterer, owner/operator of a coming soon Entree Vous, but mainly a cook and eater who grows much of her own food and loves to laugh.

Grilling, Corn and More

What's cooking in Carolina this week? With the garden coming in it isn't hard to guess. We are getting tomatoes, corn, butter beans, pink eyed purple hulls, eggplant, bell pepper, cucumbers and antelope.

We received the new Gourmet Magazine in the mail and they had a recipe for breaded grilled pork chops that looked good, so we tried it. We had not had breaded pork chops that were grilled before and were surprised how well the coating held as well as how juicy the pork chops were. I feel certain that you can get the recipe for them on the Epicurious website. Epicurious We had it with grilled eggplant and the quinoa salad, corn, scallions and mint from the same article. It was all good!

We had a wonderful broiled Salmon in a roasted tomato sauce from the July Cooking Light. The tomato sauce was very close to my recipe for roasted tomato basil soup and turned out quite well. We had it with an Israeli Cous Cous Salad with bell pepper and onion and corn, caprese salad and cukes, like most other meals.

We've also had some wonderful blueberry buttermilk pancakes.
We're getting a bumper crop of blueberries this year and freezing lots for later use. Yum!

Eat well while the crops are rolling in! Swank Recipes
