Ancho Pineapple Bacon Wrapped Dates from Zestuous

In May, I entered the 2014 Dole California Cookoff for a chance to win $25,000. Each recipe was limited to 10 ingredients and was required to include at least one cup of a Dole product. I spent weeks in the kitchen perfecting my dishes. I’ve gotta say, some of my creations were total flops. It’s …

Duck University Part 3: Seared Duck Breast with Duck Gravy

I don’t think I’ve ever been more nervous to make a recipe. A few weeks ago, Duck University taught a group of bloggers how easy it was to prepare duck breast. They said it was so simple it could be done on a weeknight in about 20 minutes. I watched celebrity chef Sara Moulton prepare …

Duck University Part 2: Enjoying duck prepared by a Master Chef

When you fire up your grill this summer, add a Zestuous touch to your meat or veggies with this Orange Poblano Chimichurri.
