I was first introduced to delicata squash only recently when I shot the recipe you see here with a good friend of mine. I’m now a big fan!
The toughest part about roasting butternut squash, if you want it in cubed shaped pieces the way you see above, is removing the outer skin as shown in the picture below. After removing the skin (I recommend using a tougher vegetable peeler than the weak and worthless one you see here), roasting is the easiest, most flavorful way I know to prepare butternut squash.
Making microwave cooked broccoli and tuna in a lighter Alfredo sauce is just one very easy and fantastically flavorful way to take microwave cooked broccoli from simple to exciting! Here’s what you need for ingredients:
Aside from its fantastic flavor – quick & easy preparation makes all the difference – broccoli has uniquely potent anti-inflammatory, heart health-promoting, cancer-fighting, body detoxification, and antioxidant properties. To get the most of both flavor and health benefits, it’s best to cook broccoli either by steaming it briefly or cooking it quickly in the microwave oven. You can see how to cook broccoli in the microwave oven (my preferred method for speed, ease, and best flavor & nutrition) by clicking either or both short step-by-step video or easy-to-follow step-by-step picture book recipe links.
The hardest part about making these great tasting chips – and it’s actually not hard at all; it just takes a little time – is peeling the sprout leaves as shown above. After that, it’s just add oil, broil & enjoy!
Last two posts showed how to cook corn on the stove and in the microwave oven. Easy. Here’s a great way to combine the crisp sweetness of corn with bell pepper (I like using red, yellow, or orange bell pepper for this because they’re sweeter and more flavorful than green bell peppers), onion, garlic, and cilantro. Terrific combination!
Here’s what you need to make this crisp corn and bell pepper salad for 3-4 people.

One of my favorite late summer foods is freshly picked, richly flavorful, no-kidding vine ripened tomatoes, which I usually get fresh from the field at Berberian’s Farm Stand in Northborough, MA. And one of my favorite ways to enjoy those tomatoes is in a fantastically flavorful and easy to make salad made with fresh basil (also from Berberian’s), mozzarella cheese, olive oil, a little salt, a good crunch of ground black pepper and, of course, a shot of balsamic vinegar.
