What a busy month of May it has been over here at Solid Gold Eats! If you hadn’t heard, I am now a regular contributor to The Indianapolis Star where I have a recipe featured each Friday in the paper and online. It has been so much fun working on this new partnership and I absolutely love the feedback I am receiving from friends, family and coworkers who have picked up my recipes and given them a shot.
My aim is to offer The Indianapolis Star a brand new recipe for their readers (and you) to try. You can find me in the TASTE section, usually page D3, with a photo, recipe and a few notes on how or why I created that dish.
My first recipe was a reprint of my Beer Braised Short Rib Poutine, along with an introduction of myself with photos and a short Q&A so you can learn more about me.
Jalapeno and Roasted Garlic Focaccia Bread – A spicy and savory bread that is thick and practically a meal in itself. Originally inspired by Emeril’s Herbed Focaccia Bread and my Green Olive Focaccia Bread.
(This one did not appear online – another reason to snag the Friday paper!)
Third Helping Scalloped Potatoes – We finally created a meatless meal. I just replaced meat with cheese.
Spring Farmers Market Salad – the Broad Ripple Farmers Market is finally open and to show my love for the vendors, I created a salad using ingredients I found at the market. Includes a nod to Indiana Microgreens, asparagus, radishes, greens and more.
Grilled Salmon Tacos with Strawberry Cucumber Salsa – Fish is a fantastic alternative to the standard grilled steak or chicken and much better for you, too. Bring strawberries and cucumbers into the party for color, crunch, and a sweet pop to a savory dish.
Duck Bacon and Brussels Sprouts Pizza – Maple Leaf Farms is at the Broad Ripple Farmers Market every third Saturday. Find them, snag some bacon and enjoy.
