Tantalizing Tomato & Onion Tart

I’ll admit that I have not yet made this dish. However, it sounds fantastic and it is more of a “when I add it to the menu” kind of thing rather than an “if I add it to the menu.” This would be an amazing brunch or lunch dish, a perfect potluck change from the normal pot of country beans, or the base for a vegetarian dinner. It is almost limitless as a dish. I cannot wait to try it.

Mouthwatering Cornmeal Crusted Rainbow Trout

My dad tells the story of his early marriage to my mom, when he went fishing in the McKenzie River in the Willamette Valley in Oregon and came home with a mess of rainbow trout that he just dumped into the kitchen sink. Her response to that was, “What do you expect me to do with that?” To which he often follows up with, “You’re lucky you made it here. There was a moment there that you might never have been.” My mom never has enjoyed rainbow trout, but (after my dad would clean fish well away from mom’s kitchen sink) she would fry it in cornmeal. When I bit into this dish, I was immediately transported back in time to my childhood and eating fresh caught rainbow trout.

Hummus with Sesame Paste (Hummus bi Tahini)

We keep hummus in our refrigerator all the time. It is a delicious, healthy snack full of protein and just yummy goodness. I dip veggies into it, Homemade Whole Wheat Pita Bread, tortilla chips, bagel chips — whatever we have on hand. I often set it out as a starter for guests to snack on while I finish up dinner. This is a completely vegetarian dish and perfect for a Daniel Fast or Lent.

Savvy Savings Sunflower Seed Substitute Tahini Paste

I was out of Tasty Traditional Tahini Paste and out of sesame seeds to whip up a quick batch. I began to explore a frugal substitute and ended up using roasted sunflower seeds. I made a perfect paste using organic roasted sunflower seeds that was both pure and delicious.
