Heirloom Cherry Tomato Greek Salad

If you love the sweet goodness of heirloom tomatoes, you’ll love the baby or cherry variety.  I can eat them like candy, but they are the perfect addition to almost any salad.

They are especially good in the version of the Greek salad.

The heirloom cherry tomato Greek salad is the perfect side salad for any barbecue and just about any grilled meat or fish.  It is especially good with lemon chicken or my lightened version of Chicken Marbella.

Turn this into an entree salad by tossing this with crispy romaine and arugula.

    Amazing Low-Calorie Pumpkin Custard
    Decadent Low-Calorie Pumpkin Custard is the perfect low-calorie dessert for the holidays. Many of us look forward to having pumpkin pie once a year on Thanksgiving but we may not want all the extra calories. Give this recipe a try - you'll get all the pumpkin pie goodness with 1/2 the calories.  If you want a lighter dessert, but still want all of the flavors of your traditional pumpkin pie, try making this simple pumpkin custard instead. This pumpkin custard is basically a pumpkin pie without the pie shell. In fact, pumpkin pie is a fairly healthy dessert option, and it is even healthier if you don't use the pie shell, which is made mostly from butter. Enjoy pumpkin custard throughout the fall season, since pumpkins are in such ready supply you can easily use fresh pumpkin, or use canned puréed pumpkin if you are short on time or can't find fresh pumpkin.

Vampiro Tequila Cocktail with Jalisco Sangrita

Vampiro Tequila Cocktail with Jalisco Sangrita. This spicy tequila cocktail mixed with a traditional Jalisco Sangrita. Sangrita’s are my new cocktail obsession. Sangrita or “little blood” has traditionally been served as a chaser for excellent quality tequila. It would have been a mixture of fruit juices and finely ground chili pepper. Many sangrita recipes call for tomato juice, but that would not have been part of the traditional recipe, the original recipe would have been made from leftover juice from fresh fruit salads and changed based on the fruits used.

Today’s cocktail culture is creating very intriguing sangritas as an ingredient in some pretty amazing tequila cocktails. This recipe calls for a combination of grapefruit, orange, and lime with a touch of spicy jalapeno pepper.
