Your Taste Buds Need a Vacation

Trip Around the World From your own kitchen

This Greek pita sandwich is loaded with chicken tenders, veggies, olives, and tzatziki sauce. Using a yogurt marinade for the chicken is the secret to its tantalizing flavor. You can grill the chicken, bake it, or cook it in a skillet or pan. Once it’s done, you’ll be left with the easy-peasy assembling the sandwich.

Second Stop: Italy

Bolognese is not your average spaghetti sauce--it's known for its richness that's developed through a slow cooking process--but on a weeknight, it's not practical. This version speeds up the classic Italian recipe for a quick and easy Bolognese sauce with Italian sausage to build flavors fast. The cooking time is about 35 minutes for this mind-blowing pasta sauce. Worth Noting: If you don't have Grana Padano cheese, Parmesan works just as well in a pinch.

Third Stop: Mexico

Fork-tender skirt steak resting on a warm tortilla topped with cilantro – that’s the stuff! If you’re looking to impress your friends on Taco Tuesday, these beef tacos are the way to go. Not only are they ridiculously delicious, but they’re also easy to make! You can serve them as is, but let’s be honest – it won’t be as fun without the toppings. So go ahead, slather your tacos with guacamole, salsa, sour cream, and cheese!

Final Stop: France

People often think of French food as the finest in fine dining, which is great, but sometimes, I believe the erroneous assumption that it’s too hard to make scares people off from trying. Creme brulee is unbelievably simple to make despite people’s misconceptions. It requires only five core ingredients and a kitchen torch (or your oven's broiler) for the caramelized top. Plus, with this recipe, you’ll make small, individual creme brulees instead of one big large one so that everyone gets to crack their own. I hope you get a chance to enjoy these recipes, or better yet, try the real deal in their country of origin! When you are ready to get out of the kitchen and let someone else prepare these dishes for you, reach out and we would love to help you make that happen!
