During summer, when the heat is unbearable, the last thing we want is a heavy meal. We turn to grilled meats and veggies, light salads and ice cold lemonade. Instead of a green salad try making this beautiful rainbow quinoa salad for your next meal or party! In all honestly I do not like raw bell peppers...but there is something about this salad. The combo of the churchy veggies and seasoned quinoa that makes it all perfectly balanced. The beans, celery and savory quinoa are perfect! I made . . .
Have I ever told you that I hate tomatoes and onions? I'm sure I have. Because of this aversion I have always steered clear of the classic seven layer dip, but as I've gotten older I've become a little braver and now eat some dishes with tomato and onion. When I tasted seven layer dip I was floored and I loved it! How could I love tomatoes? I don't know, but I know that seven layer dip is about as delicious as it comes.

It is officially, unofficially summer! The other day I whipped up a pot of summer corn chowder and thought I would share with you all this delicious way to toss in lots of summer produce. Corn on the cob is one of my favorite summer foods - but serving plates of boiled corn gets a little bit boring during the warm months. I have a few ideas up my sleeve for savoring this delicious summer food, like this corn chowder and my sweet corn salad. Chowder For Beginners I know it is easy to be . . .
We are obsessed with our pressure cookers here at OhSo. Two of us have Instant Pots and the other two have Power Pressure Cookers XL. Tender meats cooked FAST seem to be the golden ticket, but I wanted to do something different. Maybe even vegetarian...this Pressure Cooker Veggie Lasagna is a total winner. Pressure cooker lasagna isn't really different from lasagna cooked in the oven. You use no-boil noodles, layer the sauce, ricotta, cheese as usual, add a bunch of veggies, and cover . . .
Strawberry season is just getting started and I have a strawberry shortcake recipe that will leave you wondering how you have been without it all this time! This is a true shortcake recipe in that it is a quick, sweet biscuit-like cake that is crumbly and with a little sugary crunch filled with strawberry puree and sweet cream! It really is as heavenly as it sounds. Strawberry shortcakes make a great summer dessert that is light and sweet. Or, if you are in the mood, they make a fantastic . . .
Head to our Instagram account (Oh So Delicioso) and ENTER to win this KITCHENAID® ARTISAN® MINI STAND MIXER + 7 BLADE SPIRALIZER PLUS ATTACHMENT!! Zoodles have been popping up all over the internet and food blogs for a little while now, and I was dying to get something that would turn my zucchini into dang noodles! All the recipes look amazing! (Remember Kadee's Pad Thai Zoodles?) Once my dear friend heard I was dying to try zoodles she invited me over for lunch and made pesto zoodles. They . . .
Our last book club we met at a popular restaurant here in southern California called WoodRanch Grill. I've been a handful of times and have loved everything I've ordered from the menu. One of my friends suggested I get the peanut slaw that night. Peanut slaw? It sounded just like what I was craving...even though it was a late evening and usually a time when one would order dessert, I wanted something savory. This Peanut Slaw was IT. It really hit the spot. I loved that it wasn't heavy and . . .
My husband, Jim, grew up in a town in northern San Diego called Fallbrook. The town is known for its amazing avocado groves. They claim the title of "The Avocado Capitol of the Country." They even have an avocado festival there each year. So -people that grew up there probably know a thing or two about guacamole. :) Jim's brother, Bob, makes this guacamole and it's awesome! My kids call him "Uncle Bob" and are completely smitten with him. After all - he plays trains and cars with . . .
I am not a pasta/bread person. Since I was a child I have never been one to beg for a deep bowl of pasta, or homemade bread. I know, I know....I get that reaction from a lot of people. Surprise, astonishment, you're nuts! The Fettuccine Alfredo how ever I LOVE, and so does my whole family. It's not a complicated fettuccine alfredo recipe, just a simple smooth creamy buttery pasta. You can add all sorts of herbs to your desire, dress it up with some grilled chicken. Or just serve as is with a . . .
I've been looking forward to this post for a while now! We were invited to share in the excitement of Martha Stewart's 7th season of Martha Bakes on PBS and give you a peek at one of her recipes - this Cranberry Tart. I don't know about you but aside from my mother's kitchen, I learned to cook from TV! I've spent many days watching various food celebrities whip up desserts and dinners. Watching the process and learning techniques has transformed my own culinary skills. I'm so looking forward . . .
