Panna Cotta with Strawberries and Balsamic Vinegar
Recipe from Bon Appetit

Panna Cotta has always been one of my favorite desserts, but I have never attempted it. When I saw this Mario Batali recipe made with cream and yogurt, and finished with a mixture of strawberries, balsamic vinegar and black pepper, I thought this would be the perfect recipe to try. It is simply superb.

Lime and Cilantro Quinoa Salad

This salad tastes like summer. The flavors are so fresh and delicious. We did saute fresh corn, cut off the cob, but that was the only change to the recipe. We also served it at room temperature, but this salad would be very good chilled.

Vegetable Enchiladas
Recipe from Crepes of Wrath

The recipe is originally from Martha Stewart.  I used canned corn and frozen spinach, as the recipe called for––it was delicious. Next time I may try fresh. The only alteration I made was my standard: when it calls for cheese, always add more!

Apple Muesli from Shelby of Bone, Mugs & Harmony
Recipe from The Kitchn

The new breakfast of choice for the Davis family. It's healthfully delicious! We topped it with plain yogurt, chopped almonds, strawberries, blueberries and a drizzle of honey. Recipe note: We only added fresh fruit as a garnish not into the food processor.

Tuscan Style Veal Chop
Recipe from Food and Wine

Arguably the best preparation of a difficult dish. Veal chops can often be dry. This method of using olive oil and herbs, generously, makes it moist and flavorful. Consider lightly sauteing the herbs and garlic before applying to the chops.
