Tastes of Vacation - Sun, Fun & What We Ate

For us, no stay-cation is complete without fabulous food, preferably homemade. With that in mind, I hope you enjoy today's quickie post - a roundup to share some of the great food we enjoyed during our week off right next door on the south shore of beautiful Long Island.  With easy and delicious dishes like these, culinary inspiration is not far behind.

First, feast your eyes on another of the world's easiest apps - Pan Con Tomate. It's just Bread with Tomato but it is the most delicious summer bite ever. For the recipe, click HERE

Next, we enjoyed a super easy Mario Batali Chicken recipe. Pollo alla Diavola is pleasantly spicy and perfect for the grill. It takes a bit of planning but it's worth it! For the recipe, click HERE.

There are few things more refreshing on a lovely summer evening than Salmon Tartare and a crisp glass of Rose. We lightly adapted Ina Garten's version and omitted the Mustard, added chopped Chives and upped the Lime. The result was delicious (we served ours with crisp Tortilla Chips). Get Ina's recipe HERE

After many nights of cooking (plus being hosted at a wonderful and truly delicious July 4th BBQ at my sister-in-law's),a night out was in order. Here are two of the highlights of our dinner out at the bustling Red Bar Brasserie - this Scallop dish and my best guy.
