July

Morning Bliss

We're pulling out all the stops to bring you the most decadent brunch recipe we've shared in a while. Plan a little for this one and get ready to feel pampered this weekend when you make French Toast with chocolate chip brioche!

Weeknight Shorts: Salad Crumbles

Salad days are upon us and we need to keep them from becoming mundane. Break through iceberg lettuce and limp cucumbers to discover the value of upscaling plain ingredients to make your main course salad shine.

Chill Out

When the hottest weather of the year is upon us, keep cool by avoiding any heat in the kitchen. But make sure you satisfy that sweet tooth with these amazing Mixed Berry Parfaits for dessert. Oh, how sweet it is!

Grilling Fish

Grilling fish is fast and easy if you use a wooden plank for a base. That is, unless you are a drooling puppy waiting for it to be done. Then you might want to work a bit on your patience. It will be rewarded, whether you are a person or a puppy!

Tangy Starts

Begin your day with the flavor of spring anytime of the year. Rhubarb gets paired with apple, lemon, and strawberries for an out of this world marmalade that will have grabbing an extra slice of toast, bagel, or scone in the morning.

Summer Lunch

Summer is a very busy time of the year, but I'm also fortunate to have fresh summer ingredients on hand to make a quick lunch seem downright decadent. Beyond that, it also can be the start of inspiring other meals later on.

Sizzling Salad

July offers some hot weather. Embrace the sizzle with a stunning caesar steak salad that keeps all the heat out of the kitchen by firing up the grill. Blending grilled items with gorgeous fresh produce and traditional ingredients like parmesan cheese and creamy dressing makes dinner divine.

Day Old Bliss

Some donuts on their way to stale become the foundation of a stunning brunch dish that will have everyone asking you about your morning meal secrets. Packed with fresh blueberries and sweet preserves, there's no need for added sugar in this recipe!

Hearty Salad

I often make salads in the summer that last well in the refrigerator and serve as lunches during the week for me. So it will come as no surprise that some of my favorites include tender lentils. In fact, I've been known to keep a bowl of cooked lentils on hand to make salads super fast!

More Two-Stepping

The key to quick, juicy grilled chicken is parboiling and an amazing mop sauce. Parboiling makes time on the grill quick and is a great solution to questions about weekday grilling. Parboil in advance and you can have amazing grilled chicken on the table in less than half an hour!

Festive Dogs

Baking chili dogs makes this meal a fusion of fun summer food and something almost like a casserole. It also makes it a surprisingly simple and quick weeknight meal or even the kind of thing you can tote along to the park or a tailgate party.
