Corn Cakes with Tomato Avocado Relish

Summer is officially here!  These corn cakes are the first dish I make every year around this time to kick off the season. They have all the flavors of summer combined into one delicious dish.  We usually eat them as a meal all on their own but recently I made them to go with my Grilled Vegetables over Farro it was the perfect match.  What is the one dish you make to kick off summer?

Grilled Summer Vegetable Salad Over Farro

I am so excited to share this recipe with you guys today.  Now that summertime is almost here that means an ample supply of fresh vegetables.  Grilled vegetables, at least twice a week, are a must in our house.  I am always trying to come up with new ways to serve them.  My first thought was to try to create a grilled vegetable salad.  Then, I thought why not serve the grilled veggie over farro, it’s the perfect grain to soak up all the flavor of a vinaigrette.  This is now my favorite way to eat my veggie.

This is one of those things where I am slapping my head with frustration on why I waited so long to roast cauliflower.  I don’t hate cauliflower – it’s just usually not something I dash out to the store to buy.  Until I started using Green Bean Delivery Service! If you have not heard of them, I highly encourage you to check them out.  They deliver fresh organic produce right to your door.  How amazing is that?  This is the most simple and delicious side dish I have made in a long time.  The Parmesan cheese gives it a little extra flavor that takes it right to the top.

Vanilla Almond Granola

 Ok guys I have a confession…this is my first time making granola.  I’m not sure why I waited so long since I eat yogurt and granola for breakfast practically every morning.  One of the main reasons why I have not made my own granola is because a lot of the recipes I’ve seen call for a lot of ingredients.  Most of which I usually don’t keep in my pantry.  This is one of the easiest recipes plus it only calls for a few simple ingredients which was a real winner in my book.  Now that I have finally made my own granola there will be a new batch in my oven on a weekly basis.
