  • Photos of anything and everything I could think of putting in front of the camera
  • Off the wall stories and anecdotes from my wacky culinary past

Tropical Quinoa Salad

Serves: 4-6

1 cup dried quinoa
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 red onion, diced
1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 lime
1 teaspoon agave nectar
1/2 cup fresh mango, diced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped


To cook the quinoa, bring two cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan, add the quinoa, plus a pinch of salt, and reduce to a simmer. Cook covered for about 10 minutes, or until the water is absorbed.

Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in your IMUSA Caldero over medium-high heat. Add the bell pepper, onion, corn and black beans, and cook for 5 minutes, until the onion and bell pepper are lightly caramelized and slightly soft. Season with salt and pepper.

Use your IMUSA Lime Juicer to juice one lime into a large bowl. Add the remaining olive oil, and the agave nectar. Whisk together and season with salt and pepper. Transfer the bell pepper, onion, corn and beans to the bowl. Add the mango and the cooked quinoa to the bowl and toss. Refrigerate until cooled. Add the cilantro, and serve.

Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Spicy Peanut Sauce

3 (6-ounce) chicken breasts
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon peanut or vegetable oil
8 large Bibb lettuce or Boston lettuce leaves washed and dried

For filling
1/2 seedless cucumber, peeled, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced on an angle
1 cup fresh bean sprouts
1/2 cup shredded carrots
3 scallions, sliced
1/4 cup basil leaves roughly chopped
3 tablespoons chopped mint leaves
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
Salt to taste

Spicy peanut sauce
1/2 cup room temperature crunchy peanut butter
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 chopped honey roasted peanuts


Toss chicken with soy sauce vinegar and oil and allow to marinate for at least 20 minutes.

Heat an IMUSA sauté pan on high heat and cook the chicken 5 to 6 minutes on each side.

Combine cucumber, sprouts, carrots, scallions, basil, mint and sesame oil with a generous sprinkle of sugar and rice wine vinegar. Add salt to taste.

Using an IMUSA whisk, combine peanut butter, soy sauce, vinegar and cayenne and vegetable oil. Set aside.

Slice cooked chicken on an angle. Toss with veggies. Fill the lettuce leaves with equal amounts of the veggie chicken mix, top with peanut sauce & chopped peanuts, roll up and enjoy.
