Chicken Ginger Skewers

Our second recipe from Cemaco’s Kitchen and Table Catalog, is an amazing set of Chicken Ginger Skewers. This dish, is also very summer friendly. If you have a grill (no matter if it’s a big garden grill or a small countertop electric one), this is the perfect recipe to for grilling. Cemaco has a great selection of grilling items, including this Set of 4 skewers that worked like a charm.

Since we were cooking indoors, we used a countertop electric grill. Make sure to read your grills’ manufacturer instructions to heat it just in time to start grilling. To put the skewers together, start and finish with a cherry tomatoes. This will keep the rest of the veggies and chicken in place when in the grill. As with the rest of the recipes we are posting from this series, the products we used from Cemaco are listed at the end of the post.

Blackberry & Grape Fruit Salad

Surprise! We are delighted to share what has been keeping us foodies really busy. We are featured on this months’ Kitchen and Table Catalog from Cemaco! The first of five recipes is this Blackberry & Green Grape Fruit Salad adaptation from an earlier version posted right here at TFK. This time, we added more green grapes and it came out delicious. At the end of this post, you will find the products from Cemaco that we used to prepare this recipe in our kitchens.

This fruit salad is perfect for these summer days that are perfect for brunch, either with family, friends, or both! The best part of this recipe is that it’s incredibly easy to make. You just need to squeeze the lemon juice and mix it with the sugar. Let it stand and toss the fruits with it. Add the almonds when serving… and it’s ready! See? So easy. Plus, you can make it a day ahead of your brunch and have it already for your guests.

Banana Blueberry Muffins

Our summer break is over, so that means getting ready for the upcoming week. I whipped up these muffins thinking of those days that start with a breakfast-on-the-go. At The Foodies’ Kitchen we’ve found that Martha Stewart’s recipes are always reliable, so when we took a look at these Banana Blueberry Muffins, we knew it was a keeper.

A few years ago, I learned that to ripen bananas to make them sweeter, you can pop them in your preheating oven for 30 minutes and you have bananas ready to transform into banana bread. So, I did the same this time. I had perfect almost-unspotted bananas, so I pierced them with a fork and into the oven.

One of the things that I loved about this recipe, is that part of the flour that it asks for is whole wheat. This makes the muffin not too cakey nor dry. With the added blueberries, that you can replace with raspberries, strawberries or even blackberries, it’s the perfect breakfast to-go. If you want smaller bites, we recommend you baking the muffins in mini-muffin molds, adjusting the baking time to 20 minutes.
