I named this particular omelet recipe the farmer’s market omelet because it uses three of my very favorite kinds of local summer produce: sweet corn, cheery cherry tomatoes, and aromatic basil. The omelet itself is filled with creamy cheddar cheese, and the savory cheese mixed with the sweet veggies…well, let’s just say that when you find yourself at your local farmer’s market, please think farmer’s market omelet. Let’s make it!
So, let me explain the bruschetta part of this chicken bruschetta pasta plate of deliciousness. A bruschetta is a lovely piece of bread that is usually rubbed with olive oil and grilled and topped with fresh veggies, often with a balsamic vinegar dressing. Or if you are me, topped with lobster, or scrambled eggs. But then one day it occurred to me: what if I swapped out the grilled bread for pasta? And what if I added in a little grilled chicken, to get some good and good for you protein in there?
I think you know how things turned out. Ready to dig into your own plate of chicken bruschetta pasta? Let’s make it!
I am head of the Caprese Salad Appreciation Committee (this is a self-appointed position) and I can and will caprese up just about anything, so it’s wonder that I haven’t cooked up a chicken caprese salad until just now. But better late than never, and this one was worth the wait! Tender chicken marinated in a balsamic vinegar dressing and lovingly laid on a bed of lettuce, tomatoes, basil and some cute little mozzarella balls. Hello, my new favorite chicken salad! Ready for some chicken caprese salad of your own? Let’s make it!
I’m guessing you already know that pesto, that delightful sauce made out of basil and pine nuts and garlic and other delectable things is terrific mixed with pasta, but did you know that it is also an awesome addition to roasted salmon? Some pesto, some salmon filets and about 20 minutes are all that stand between you and a delectable, healthy supper…and that includes the time it takes to preheat the oven. Ready to get some roasted pesto salmon goodness going? Let’s make it!

I am always happy to have a strawberry basil margarita any day of the week, but never more than today. Today marks an enormous change for me and my family, as I move from my wonderful day job where I have been for the last 27 years, to working full time on the incredible adventure that is all things Framed Cooks. So please indulge me as I go down memory lane for a little while, look ahead to the future for a little while, and at the end of this post, I promise there is a recipe for my new favorite summer cocktail.
