Thank you Simply 7 Snacks for sponsoring this post and thanks to all my readers for supporting the brands that make My Cape Cod Kitchen possible.  As always, all opinions are my own.Cheesy Chicken and Pea Skillet. The perfect back-to-routine dish that the whole family (kiddos included) will love. Pan sautéed garlicky chicken is topped with chewy farro (our favorite grain) and a creamy combination of cheddar cheese, whole milk plain yogurt and sweet peas. Then the whole thing is topped with more cheese and some crispy Simply7 White Cheddar Lentil Chips. So good. Though I am not ready to say goodbye to summer …  or ready to think about the temperatures that come with October and beyond, I am ready for the cooler, drier days of September. Here on the Cape, September is the perfect month [Read More]

Lobster Rolls with Corn, Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil Salad. No summer is complete without a lobster roll. Or two, or three, or ....ideally, as many lobster rolls as you (and your wallet) can possibly pack into one summer. Because can you really ever have too much lobster?While there are many places that do a lobster roll really well ... two of our favorite places are: The Clam Shack (Kennebunkport, Maine) where they serve the lobster on toasted, buttered round roll. The lobster (about a pound of lobster meat) has been tossed in butter, which makes for the best lobster roll I have ever had. Plus they're served with lemon slices, which is a must. Pomponessett Inn (Mashpee, Mass.) There is so much lobster meat in their lobster roll, you almost can't eat it all. It's easily enough for two [Read More]

Grilled Haddock Salad with Kiwi Lime Cilantro Salsa This Grilled Haddock Salad with Kiwi Lime Cilantro Salsa just screams summer! Make it for lunch or a light dinner paired with warm whole grain dinner rolls – or any whole grain you have on hand (black rice or quinoa would be great – even throw it on top of the greens before placing the fish and salsa on top). Grilled fish over greens is on our dinner menu at least a few times a week in the summer. It’s quick, light [Read More]

Caprese Potato Salad

I created this recipe for Drew’s, maker of all-natural salad dressings and marinades, as part of an ongoing partnership with them. I was compensated for the recipe creation, but not for this post and all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting brands that make My Cape Cod Kitchen possible! Caprese Potato Salad. This fresh, light, mayo-free potato salad is perfect for summertime cook-outs and picnics. It highlights the best of summer produce – fresh basil and tomatoes. I’ve never been a fan of potato salad or other mayo-laden “salads” like tuna, chicken or egg salad. My mom made tuna salad for us as kids, but she used a heavy hand of vinegar and little to no mayo. I liked and still like that tuna salad, but avoid all other creamy “salad” concoctions, especially those […]

Seared Scallop Cobb Salad

Seared Scallop Cobb Salad. Lightly seared scallops sit atop a bed of crisp iceberg lettuce, along with creamy avocado, pungent blue cheese, crunchy walnuts, crispy bacon, fresh garden tomatoes, earthy beets and sweet red onion. This is a seafood lovers cobb. We are seafood lovers. Are you? Most of you already know we love scallops in our house. In fact, they may just be our favorite seafood. And we get great local scallops here on the Cape. You can’t beat ’em. Grilled, seared, fried, raw (have you ever had scallop sashimi? SO good!), you name it. But, they’re pricey. At 19.99/lb, scallops aren’t a splurge we’re buying on the regular. When we do buy them, every month or so, we’ll buy just 1/2 lb and have them along with a small piece of fish. The scallops themselves […]

I was compensated for the recipe creation, but not for this post and all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting brands that make My Cape Cod Kitchen possible! Grilled Eggplant Pitas. Toasted pita pockets stuffed with marinated and grilled eggplant, fresh baby arugula, crisp and tangy red onion, crunchy walnuts and drizzled with creamy, garlicky Drew’s All-Natural Tahini Goddess Dressing & Quick Marinade. Like many of you, we love to grill veggies in the summer – especially eggplant, portabellas, corn, onions, zucchini and summer squash. We rarely turn on our oven in the summer, unless we need to roast a bunch of veggies we’ve gotten from our CSA before they pass their prime. If we’re […]

Grilled Radishes with Ricotta, Apricots and Walnuts

Grilled Radishes with Ricotta, Apricots and Walnuts. Tender, smoky radishes topped with creamy and mild ricotta, sweet dried apricots and crunchy rich walnuts. A pretty and flavor-filled summer side dish that highlights spring radishes. Disclosure: I serve on the health professional board for the California Walnut Board and Commission, however all opinions are my own and I was not compensated for this post. We’ve been patiently awaiting the first week of our CSA (community supported agriculture) produce and cheese share from Coonamessett Farm in East Falmouth, here on the Cape. Last week was our first pick up, and, as we expected we were given more produce (salad greens, field greens, radishes, garlic, rhubarb, strawberries) than we know what to do with (well, not really than we know what to do with…BUT we’re going to have a LOT of produce […]
