Super Simple Raspberry Syrup

Sweet, tart, and berry-licious! This is one of those simple things that can make you look like you are some sort of culinary fancy-pants when you serve it to your guests (or in my case, my 2 boys). It really is simple to make and you don’t even need fresh […]

Sunday Dinner

Spaghetti Bolognese Long time no post! Sorry for neglecting my blogging duties, I have been having a little too much summer fun. I plan on catching up this week, so sorry in advance if you get a lot of Juicy Bites in your in box. We had a fun and […]

Let the Summer Salad Extravaganza Begin!

Niçoise salad Happy summer to all of my Juicy Bites readers! So maybe extravaganza is a bit of an over statement, but a juicy post title can’t hurt…right? I do hope to post many a salad over the next few months. Salads are a great way to lighten up your […]

Kale and Caramelized Onion Pizza

I feel like it’s been a while since my last post. It’s been a little crazy around my house trying to wrap up the school year for both of my boys. Last week was preschool graduation for Finn…serious stuff! And this week is the last week that Max will be […]

Mango Margatini

My “Mad Greek” Dip

With summer just around the corner, this simple make-ahead dip will be a great addition to your appetizer arsenal. It is the same idea behind your typical Mexican 7 layer dip…only with Mediterranean flavors. It goes great with pita chips and would also be fabulous spread onto a slices of […]

Tostadas de Frijoles Peruanos

Frijoles Peruanos are Peruvian Beans. They are also known as Canary Beans and are actually a product of Mexico. They are lighter in color and a little creamier than Pintos. I have been to a couple Mexican restaurants lately that serve Peruvian beans instead of Pintos and they have become a […]

Mediterranean Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

This is a family favorite in my house. I use red, yellow, and orange bell peppers and precook them to get them nice and soft. Then I stuff them with a mixture of quinoa, chopped spinach, kalamata olives, and feta cheese. I finish them off with a dollop of home […]
