Roasted Chicken with Fregola Salad

With temperature in the high 90’s last week, I searched for some great salads for dinner. This delicious chicken salad is adapted from The Bergdorf Goodman Cookbook. I used a rotisserie   chicken found at a local market and I used Israeli couscous instead of fregola.

Stuffed Tomatoes and Peppers

the fashionista cook

This could be a meal by themselves or it would go nicely along grilled meat. It did take longer to cook than what the recipe stated. But, I will place the baking dish on the bottom shelf. I also made a mistake and added to much water and so the sauce was too thin. Only add enough water to reach a quarter of the height of the vegetables.

5 Summer Salads

More summer salads!

What's for Dinner Moms?

It is the season of picnics, fireworks, and parties. I have picked out a few of our favorite salads for today and the few weeks ahead.

We love Balsamic vinegar and one of our favorite potato salads is this Balsamic Roasted Red Potato Salad (click for link to recipe). It can be served warm or at room temperature but the flavor is amazing! An unexpected dish for the summer is always fun.

This BLT Pasta Salad (click for link to recipe) is a great addition to a barbecue. The pasta with the BLT salad adds a whole level of texture and makes it nice and filling for those teens that you may have that seem to have never-ending appetites.

This is one of my most favorite salads.  The goat cheese, the blueberries, and the slightly sweet/tart dressing are amazing together! The toasted almonds add a nice crunch too.

Boil 600ml of stock, take off the cooker and pour the couscous into the pan. Leave to soak for about 5 minutes. Add 5 tablespoons of olive oil and stir it with a fork to get rid of any clumps. Free the pistachio nuts from their shells (you might…
