Put a Pin in It! with Delicious Cook Ronnie Woo

Posted: Updated:

For Today's Put a Pin in IT, Maria invited Chef Ronnie Woo, Executive Chef and owner of The Delicious Cook, a private chef company specializing in intimate 4-Star Dinner Parties!

Chia Seed "Yogurt" Parfaits: We love indulgent foods, but we also have to look and feel good for the beach… I mean it is summer! So here is a little trick. We have a Chia Seed Yogurt Parfait. Remember chia pets? Chia seeds are amazing as they don't taste like anything and are super high in Omega 3's! You can make two versions, one is made with chocolate milk and the other is made with light coconut milk. It's delicious to eat to helps you feel fuller and this recipe here makes for a quick breakfast, snack, or even dessert! Just add some fresh fruit and some of your favorite crunchy cereal and it's healthy, filling, and delicious! It keeps you satiated, energized and is a perfect substitute for that sweet yogurt because it's sweetened with honey and a just a kiss of sugar!

Crostinis & Tartines: Perfect for entertaining! If you need finger food, a variety of crostinis will be perfect for small bites or if you are having friends over for lunch, you can make them larger and turn them into tartines, which are essentially open-faced sandwiches. Literally, the options are endless! Today we have a few different variations, but it's fun to try out different combinations and essentially make up your own! Toss up a quick salad and you are good to go!

Fresh Summer Fruit Tarts with Vanilla Bean Pastry Cream: Now these babies are show-stoppers at any event and the best part is that they look like a professional pastry chef made them but in fact they are EASY BREEZY. Even the pastry cream is easy breezy! It's all about the mold, a quick dough and some fruit! You can arrange the fruit anyway you like! You can make these all-year round and just use whatever fruit is in season.

Sparkling Blackberry Lemonade: For the summer, we are all about fruit-filled, lemony drinks! They are always refreshing and it always hits the spot. Freeze the blackberries on skewers and use them as fun ice cubes sticks!! But you can really use any kind of fruit you like! You can easily make these for the kids and the beauty is, you get to control how much sugar actually goes into this drink! If you want to make an adult version, just add some alcohol to it and serve it up to your friends for a perfect summer cocktail!
