Tomatoes with a Surprise Filling

Pomodori a Sorpresa means tomatoes with a surprise! Who doesn’t love a surprise right? Well, me actually LOL! I’d much rather know! SO I’m going to go ahead and ruin it for you {sorry} the surprise is the filling inside, which is a warm, gooey, melted hunk of Mozzarella. In order to make things easy, I would cut a little X into the bottom of each tomato and blanch them in boiling water, transfer them to an ice bath and then the skin will just pull right off. The filling possibilities are endless! Baci! What You Will Need: 6 roma tomatoes - skins removed 1 fresh ball of Mozzarella - diced 8-10 large fresh Basil leaves - roughly chopped flour - enough to dredge 2 eggs - beaten breadcrumbs/panko - enough to dredge Canola/Vegetable Oil - enough to fry salt/pepper What To Do: Place enough oil {a few inches} into a deep sided pan and heat to 350 degrees.

Served with a couple quick sides like a tossed salad and sliced carrots, it’s complete meal that’s ready in 20 minutes. Here are the key ingredients. The skinless, boneless chicken breasts unfortunately did not make it into the photo-op. Mainly because I’ve yet to figure out how to make chicken breasts look nice for a photo. Begin by cutting the chicken breasts into thirds lengthwise so that you end up with long strips. Using a knife, spread the dijon mustard over each of the chicken strips. Now prepare the breading. Next add the whole wheat panko. Toss the chicken strips into the breading and be sure they are well-coated on all sides using a fork, or – even better – your fingers.

My first memory of eating it was when our babysitter used to make me mashed bananas with peanut butter as a special treat, and I just gobbled it up. Now I love peanut butter on my whole wheat toast, in my ice cream, covered in chocolate, with carrots or apples, and stirred into my Asian noodles and marinades.

(I even enjoy licking it off a spoon.) Fortunately, this is a healthy indulgence (well maybe not so much when it’s mixed into ice cream), as peanuts are powerful nutrients, full of healthy monosaturated fats, antioxidents, vitamin E, manganese, protein and fiber. I was in fourth grade in Glencoe, Illinois, when I first learned about the famous African American inventor and scientist, George Washington Carver, who popularized peanuts as a crop in the U.S. and created more than 300 products made from peanuts.

Stocking Your Refrigerator. In just a few short weeks the summer will be over and everyone will be heading back to school. Boston is a college town with thousands of students living in apartments for the first time. I often see many students doing their first grocery shop of the year. I would like to offer a few suggestions about grocery shopping to this very group of people. I have already talked a little bit about stocking both a spice cupboard and a food cupboard. Today let’s talk about the refrigerator! My Refrigerator Fridge Tip #1: Check out expiration dates The most important thing to remember when stocking a refrigerator is to check the “sell by” dates on ALL perishable items. Granted, stores would be nuts not to be very careful to remove these items. The dating jargon can be very confusing.

This recipe is so simple and yet so elegant. Salmon fillets are quickly marinated in Thai sweet chili sauce, soy sauce and ginger and then broiled until caramelized on top. Begin by making the marinade. The only thing you have to do is grate the ginger because the other two ingredients come straight out of jars. Be sure to use a good quality sweet chili sauce. My two favorite brands, which are both widely available, are Mae Ploy (pictured above) and Thai Kitchen. Set some of the marinade aside to use as a sauce at serving time, then add the salmon to the rest and marinate for one hour in the refrigerator. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and drizzle a bit of the marinade over the salmon fillets.

Broil for 6-10 minutes, depending on the size and thickness of the fillets. Top with reserved marinade and scatter sliced scallions over top. That's all there is to it!
