September - Beef Tenderloin Salad

Serves 6 persons

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 1/2 pounds 1-inch-thick beef tenderloin steaks (about 6 steaks)
Serves 8
This sweet, crunchy salad is an amazing summer recipe that captures summer peaches at their finest.  With a delectable crunch of the candied pecans, along with the tangy-sourness from the goat cheese balancing out the sweet, all together this makes a salad that’s one of my favorites.

July - Beef Empanadas

May - Citrus Tilapia

Serves 4

Tilapia is fast becoming popular in the U.S. because it’s a lean, white fish that’s very high in protein and not expensive. With a light flavor, it’s a fish where the sauce can become the star – and this citrus sauce perfectly complements the delicate flavor and is just the thing for spring.  With citrus being in season right now, you’ll get the brightest of flavors.  Serve this with rice and petit peas or broccoli for a wonderful meal. 

April - A Spring Brunch

Stuffed French Toast with Banana Filling

Did you know a banana gives you one and a half hours worth of energy?   So this breakfast is great for kids.  Especially if they’re playing sports, have a big test, or just running around for the day.  It’s the perfect energy boost!  But not only a hit with the kids, this Stuffed French Toast can be an elegant brunch item for any special gathering.
