Pasta Salad

Pretty pasta salad

This is less of a recipe post and more of a really easy guideline for some fresh tasty pasta salad!

First you’ll need to get our Oikogeneia Greek Blend and follow the recipe on the back to make a DELIGHTFUL vinaigrette.

Then cook up some pasta (any kind you want; curly, flat, tubular)

Dice up some fresh veg (tomato, mushroom, carrot, celery, cucumber… heck you could even venture into the realm of olives and artichokes, that would be nice)

Crumble some cheese (feta, goat, bleu, manchego)

Throw everything in a bowl, pour some of that vinaigrette all over it, stir it up and VIOLÀ! You’ve got some fresh pasta salad.

Get a little crazy with the ingredients or stick to the basics, no matter what you do, let your heart (and stomach) lead the way and you’ll never fail!

Roasted Potatoes

Simple. Easy. Delicious.

What more could you ask for in a side dish?

Here’s how ya make some killer roasted potatoes:

Preheat oven to 450°F. Peel or don’t peel your potatoes (it’s your choice, listen to your heart). Cut into wedges or cubes. Throw into a bowl and coat with olive oil. Sprinkle on the seasoning of your choice, and mix ’em up so they’re good and covered (we like Grill Seasoning or Oikogeneia or Durango BBQ, oh heck, we’ll put any of our blends on roasted potatoes!). Spread the potatoes out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in the oven for 30 to 45 minutes depending on the size of your potatoes.

Let cool a little and ENJOY!

Grilled Corn

If I could write a love song about corn I would.

Cream it, grill it, pan fry it, throw it in a stew.

No matter what you do, I’ll love it. And I might even love you.

It’s an epic sort of love, I posted about grilled corn last year and I’ll probably post about it next year too.

I mean, look at this beauty:

Grilled Corn

Talk about tasty. YUM.

We pulled back the husk, stripped out those little white hairs, rubbed on some olive oil, and then lovingly sprinkled Grill Seasoning on all the cobs. Then we wrapped them back into their husks and tied them with string to keep all that goodness inside:

Then we threw those puppies on the grill and let the magic happen.

*sigh* Isn’t summer marvelous?

Let’s stay this way forever,
