Zucchini Turkey Patties
Let’s start with an entree. The zucchini patties are not only delicious but also a healthy option to prepare when you get together with friends and family. It’s easy and delicious.
1 pound ground turkey
8 oz. shredded zucchini
2 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup minced cilantro
¼ cup minced parsley
4 Tbsp. minced green onion
1 Tbsp. ground coriander
½ tsp. ground cayenne
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. kosher salt
½ tsp. ground black pepper
Mix all the ingredients together. Form into loose 4 ounce patties. Brown on both sides. Finish in the oven until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees (about 6 minutes).
To escape from the heat, there’s nothing better than a good refreshing dessert. That’s why we would like to share this amazing raspberry mousse recipe.
1 1/4 cup cold water
2 1/2 cup boiling water
10 teaspoons gelatin
5 oz. lemon juice
1 1/4 cup organic sugar
6 1/4 cups fresh raspberries
10 cups heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract
In a small saucepan, add cold water. Mix in gelatin and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Stir in boiling water, vanilla extract, sugar, lemon juice, and raspberries. Bring to boil on medium heat. Turn down the heat to low and boil for 5 minutes. Pour mixture into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Allow to cool 10 minutes. In a large bowl, add whipping cream and beat with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Fold in the raspberry mixture and allow to cool in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
This traditional and tropical cocktail is originally from Brazil and is made with a mix of muddled limes (or other fruit), sugar, crushed ice, and Cachaça, a Brazilian sugarcane liquor. However, it can also be prepared with vodka or rum. Personally, I like it best with vodka.
1-2 limes, sliced in half lengthwise and the pith removed. Can be cut in quarters after the pith is removed
1-2 tablespoons of sugar
2 ounces of cachaca or vodka
1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice – optional
To garnish: lime slices
1. Either directly in a short glass or in a cocktail shaker, combine the lime halves or quarters with the sugar and use a muddler to gently crush and squeeze out the lime juice from the limes.
2. Add the alcohol (cachaca, vodka or rum) and lime juice, stir or shake well. If using a cocktail shaker pour the drink, including the muddled limes, into a short glass with crushed ice. If making the drink directly in the glass, add crushed ice and stir.
3. Serve immediately garnished with a lime slice.
