Mama Goldberg

I love stopping by Mama Goldberg’s and getting my favorite salad. All of the salads are delicious, the proportions are great and there seems to be an endless amount of ingredients to choose from! Here is my personal combination.

I usually order mine with:

Grilled chicken

Sun Dried Tomatoes

Black Olives

Mushrooms

Carrots

Baby Corn

Feta Cheese

As for the dressing, that depends on what I’m in the mood for but I typically order some type of vinaigrette.

Last Night’s Dinner: Stuffed Avocado Shells & Veggies

Last night I enjoyed a very light, delicious dinner of chickpea and sautéed shrimp salad stuffed in avocado shells with seasoned cumbers and tomatoes, finished with thinly sliced sharp cheddar and pepper-jack cheeses.

Tuesday’s Dinner

For dinner on Tuesday I really wanted to try something a little different. I decided to inject a chicken with a cajun marinade and deep fry it the same way I would a turkey. First, I used a Caribbean jerk spice rub for the seasoning. Once the chicken finished cooking I glazed the entire bird with a spicy jerk-bbq sauce that I had been experimenting with for a while. For the sides I chose steamed broccoli, three cheese tortellini with a garlic parmesan sauce, baked potato and garlic bread. This was my first time preparing my chicken and pasta this way but, everything turned out really good together and I would definitely try this recipe again in the future. Happy eating!

Introduction Into My Food Category; Grillin’

I love to cook! One fact about me most people don’t know is that since I was child I’ve always wanted to attend Culinary Art School. Preparing food is an art, it’s both challenging and very interesting to me. There are quite a few really good cooks in my family so I’ve always had great influences to draw inspiration from. Although I’ve never stepped foot in any cooking classes, I live out my chef fantasies within my kitchen, preparing meals daily for myself and family. I’ve always documented meals that I feel look especially appetizing whether I made it or not, but, I wanted to dedicate a category here on my blog in which I can share these unreleased photos with the world. First up are just a few from this spring as my family and I kicked off our grilling season. Funny thing is, being from Illinois has never prevented me from firing up my grill no matter what season it is! I was raised in a family that would grill in the middle of a Midwest winter in 10 feet of snow, a blizzard, whatever!!! As long as the the charcoal can be lit, we’re going to grill no matter how hot or cold it is outside! Now that I live in Georgia my friends think it’s unheard of for me to go outside in freezing temperatures to grill but I love grilled food so much, plus Georgia winter is NOTHING like Illinois winter so it’s very easy for me to grill year round. Well, I will continue to update my adventures in food from this point forward so be sure to check back often if you love the sight of delicious looking foods straight from my kitchen and from all of my travels. And remember, it’s always a great time to grill!
