My way of cooling down without heating up the house this HOT SUMMER DAY.   Shrimp Spring Rolls with Avacado Spring Rolls are refreshing, healthy and a great way to cool off. I've made these one time before and wrapping them isn't as easy as rolling a burrito. I made almond butter dipping sauce with the ingredients I had in the refrigerator and it came out really good.   INGREDIENTS: Four Spring Roll Skins Twelve pieces of Cooked Shrimp One Tablespoon Thai Basil - chopped One Tablespoon Mint - chopped One Tablespoon Green Onion - chopped 1/4 Cup Diced Cucumbers - diced Two Tablespoon Cilantro - chopped 1/2 Avocado- sliced 1/2 Cup Shredded Cabbage - sliced Shred with a knife your vegetables and herbs and set in bowl. Stir to combine everything but the Avocado, slice and set this aside. Fill a large bowl or pot with warm water. Dip one wrapper into the warm water for 5 second to soften. Lay wrapper flat on clean surface. Lay in the center 3-4 shrimp and sliced avocado. Using your shredded vegetables and herbs in bowl, top shrimp and avocado with about 1/4 cup of mixture leaving about 2 inches uncovered on each side. Fold uncovered sides inward, then tightly roll the wrapper, beginning at the end. Repeat with remaining ingredients and use however much you like, its your food and you need to enjoy it! NOTE - You can use whatever you like depending on your taste. I prefer more avocado and cucumber in mine but I'm cooking for myself. Shrimp Spring Rolls with Almond Butter Sauce The Almond Butter Sauce:  1/2 Cup Almond Butter One Tablespoon Warm Water Two Tablespoons Sesame Dressing Two Tablespoons Lemon Ginger Dressing    Almond Butter Sauce Stir together is same bowl and let sit before making Spring Rolls.  Note: The remaining ingredients you can set aside and make a salad or use as a topping or side salad with your spring rolls and drizzle the Almond Butter sauce ontop.

  Hello, Russian Doll readers! I'm so excited to share this sweet Paris in Pink bridal champagne brunch planned by loving friends Jeannene Kelly and Debbie Abel. They both designed and decorated Eiffel Towers and pink roses as centerpieces at Riverside Art Museum garden-like atrium. What's a brunch without champagne, beautiful linens and the personal touch of French inspired brunch entree's and dessert's by Russian Doll Bakery and Catering. Take a peak and be inspired my some Paris themed bridal shower inspiration!  THE DECOR THE FOOD From start to finish this was a romantic and intimate event with close friends and family. We know she loved the color pink that is also included in her upcoming wedding. To keep it light and fresh the menu prepared by Chef Fenya was goat cheese and sun-dried tomato quiche with a pomegranate vinaigrette salad dressing with freshly baked croissants. Paris themed bridal shower cant go without French macarons, crepes, petit fours and ruffled cakes. It was a beautiful day to celebrate this bride to be!

FIVE EASY STEPS Here are five easy steps for any aspiring chef who wants to create delicious, fresh tasting dressings at home. Since I have always easily made my own gourmet dressings, I forget that not everyone realizes just how easy it really is!  Buying local and fresh to make your own custom creations beats buying a bottle from the store any day; the best part is that you can change the recipe to your taste, using what’s available in your own backyard or at local farmer's markets--fresh herbs and flavored olive oils and balsamic always delight the senses! You can also adjust the recipe to make more or less dressing, depending on the amount you need. FIVE STEPS 1. COLLECT ALL YOUR INGREDIENTS 2. PLACE VINEGAR OR FLAVORED VINEGAR IN BOWL 3. SLOWLY WHISK EXTRA-VIRGIN OLIVE OIL IN BOWL, OR USE FLAVORED OLIVE OIL (TIP: WHEN YOU WHISK THE INGREDIENTS TOGETHER AND THE BOWLS START TO SPIN, PLACE A DISH TOWEL UNDERNEATH THE BOWL TO SECURE IT FROM SPINNING) 4. ADD YOUR HERBS, SALT, PEPPER AND GARLIC (ZESTED) 5. BLEND WELL (TIP- YOU CAN ALWAYS USE A MASON JAR AND SHAKE IT CONTINUOUSLY  FOR 1 MINUTE AND STORE IN YOUR REFRIGERATOR) VARIANTS: FRESH HERBS IN SEASON (tarragon, basil, thyme, sage, parsley, oregano or marjoram ) ROASTED GARLIC DICED GREEN ONION EDIBLE FLOWER PETALS (rosemary flowers, lavender, dianthus,  pansies or squash flowers) PARMESAN CHEESE LEMON OR ORANGE ZEST GOURMET MUSTARD BASIC RECIPE: ½ C. BALSAMIC VINEGAR PINCH OF SALT AND PEPPER 1 GLOVE OF GARLIC (ZESTED) 4 TABLESPOON OLIVE OIL YOU DON’T HAVE TO USE DRESSING ON JUST SALAD; IT'S ALSO GREAT ON VEGETABLES OR POTATOES...MAKE A POTATO SALAD!  BE CREATIVE AND LISTEN, AND YOUR FOOD WILL TO TALK TO YOU!  ENJOY!

  AN ELEGANT ENTREE MAKES ANY SUMMER COOK OUT COOL   Summer hot cooking tips feature outdoor BBQ for your desserts using watermelon. Honey grilled watermelon salad is sweet and simple at the summer’s peak. How to pick a good watermelon? Visiting your local Farmers Market is the best choice, but a local supermarket is another alternative. 2 large slices of the watermelon must be cut into four triangles. 2 table spoons of olive oil ½ teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons of honey 1 pint of grape tomatoes, quartered 4 ounces of fresh mozzarella, cut in half or sliced fresh basil leaves and balsamic glaze for drizzling Directions Preheat your grill to medium heat. Drizzle watermelon with olive oil and season all sides with salt and pepper. Add splash of honey over each watermelon and place them on the grill, grilling each side for about 2 minutes. Remove and add a little more honey if desired. Assemble salads by placing two watermelon triangles on each plate, then cover with a few grape tomatoes, thin slices of mozzarella and basil leaves. Add some salt and pepper on top, then drizzle with balsamic glaze (can be purchased at your local grocery store or made at home!  SERVE AND ENJOY Recipe by Russian Doll Bakery and Catering

 We had the pleasure to cater a wedding using local organic ingredients this past weekend! We meet so many wonderful people at the bride and grooms wedding. Thank you to everyone who raved about the food a presentation at the private winery estate in Temecula Ca. Everyone was dressed to the nines, so obviously the food had to match. Which you can see below Russian Doll Bakery and Catering did an amazing job.
