Burrata Caramelized Onion and Prosciutto Pizza

Burrata Prosciutto and Carmelized Onion Pizza www.bellalimento.com

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of going on a media trip to Vidalia, Georgia. Being a Georgia Peach myself I was naturally over the moon excited about seeing these sweet spheres in their natural habitat. One of the things I love about my job is visiting farms, getting to know the actual farmers and seeing how much love and attention goes into growing, harvesting and packaging the food that ends up in our grocery bags and on our kitchen tables (or breakfast bar because yeah sometimes the table is covered in photography equipment. It happens).

Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna

Spinach Shroom Lasagna

I kinda have a thing with lasagna. Not going to lie. I love it. It’s a classic and there’s a reason things become classics. They’re GOOD. Alright better than good. They’re G-R-E-A-T. Now Tony Tiger is swimming around in my my head and I’m sure in yours as well. You’re welcome. I make my Lasagna alla Bolognese in the fall and winter. It’s heavy, rich and begs to be made during colder weather when I need to be warmed up from my head to my toes. That doesn’t mean I don’t crave lasagna in the warmer months. I do. I just go a little different route.

Strozzapreti with Burrata and Broccolini

Pasta with Burrata and Brocolini www.bellalimento.com

I honestly can not fathom how anyone could ever get bored with pasta. Ever. The possibilities are endless. ENDLESS. Take this dish for instance, it was one of my clean out the fridge dinners. I picked up some gorgeous broccolini and burrata from Trader Joe’s earlier this week (when I was on my monthly gourmet jelly bean run – have you had them? oh my GAWsh) and cherry tomatoes from my local farm stands (which I do until my garden starts pumping them out, come on garden!).  I knew those would make an excellent quick and healthy dinner so off to the dinner races we went.

Pavlova with Lemon Curd and Berry Compote

Pavlova with Lemon Curd and Berry Compote www.bellalimento.com

If you’re looking for a summer stunner to complete your meal (or just because you’re craving dessert) this is it. It’s a show stopper and best of all it doesn’t take too much effort to pull together. A Pavlova is simply a fancy name for a meringue based dessert. We’re not going to get into who came up with the dessert because well I don’t want to open that can of worms. Let’s just say thank you that it does exist and we can make and enjoy it. Okay.

Hummingbird Cocktail

Hummingbird Cocktail www.bellalimento.com

I can assure you that is a cocktail and not a glass of water. Although you might think you’re drinking flavored water because The Hummingbird is a smooth sexy sneaky little cocktail that’s made with three little ingredients: St Germain, Prosecco and Club Soda. I’m not sure how many years ago I was introduced to St Germain, because whenever I try to recall years I’m always wrong (my friends will attest to this). So we’ll just say 4 for the sake of argument.

Homemade Lemon Curd

Homemade Lemon Curd www.bellalimento.com

Pucker up! I hope you like lemons as much as I do. I’m a lemon head. Always have been. In fact, I was THAT kid that loved to eat lemons. I think my Dad probably thought it would be funny to watch a toddler try and eat a lemon slice and then was surprised when I didn’t spit it out and continued to eat it like it was candy (and yes lemon heads are high on movie candy list). If it has lemon in it I’m hoping on board the tart train. Period.
