I'm an avid reader of restaurant menus...they give me inspiration for creating recipes. While perusing the internet, I found a menu item for a melon and bacon salad which consisted of field greens, melons, bacon and feta cheese. There was no mention of how it was dressed, however. Totally inspired, I decided to take a simple spinach salad, add melon and dress it with a melon vinaigrette. I use cantaloupe in this one but I think it would be lovely with honeydew or honey rock melon. Sweet and salty, it's extremely refreshing! —inpatskitchen
I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining.
My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
