Sweet Stuffing

Stuffed vegetables seem like a no brainer when the summer harvest is at its peak. Mix up your offerings a bit with a sweet version of stuffed peppers that has a Hawaiian touch, including baking them on a bed of spiced pineapple!

Battle Of The BBQs

Whether you are cooking with charcoal or gas, we've got your BBQ needs covered with a fun look at the differences and amazing recipes to help you show off this Labor Day weekend. So fire up the grill and get started.

Tangy Summer Snack

When it's hot and I don't want to touch the stove, I reach for my canning jars and make marinated chèvre and pickled … well, everything. Add bread from my favorite bakery and a glass of wine and I'm set until the heat breaks.

A Spicy Meatball

A meatloaf-like meatball recipe gets a tex-mex twist and taco meatballs are born! Use them in a south-of-the-border pasta dish or as the star of your new favorite, a taco meatball sub sandwich. If you're like me, you'll double or triple the recipe and freeze some for later.

Summer Skillet

Caprese salads can be a staple at the table during August. Now summer's favorite flavor combination gets dinner on the table in main dish form. Tender chicken and fresh zucchini join the flavors of tomato, basil, and fresh mozzarella to get dinner ready in under an hour.

Garden Glory

Fresh baby vegetables roast quickly and become the sweetest side when paired with miso butter and your favorite summer main dishes. It's worth turning on the oven for a little bit for these show-stopping summer veggies.

Grilling Fruit

Whether you are looking for the perfect summer ice cream topping or a sweet start to your day, a fruit topping featuring honey-grilled plums and fresh blueberries is sure to be a hit. Make a double batch and use it everywhere.

How Summer Rolls

Summer leftovers often find themselves starring in summer rolls, alongside the season's freshest produce and brightly-colored edible flowers. It's fast, simple, and downright beautiful food. So start rolling!

Summer's Palette

I could probably live off caprese salad and chunks of bread in August. But mixing it up a bit can be a welcome treat. Adding an element of sweetness with juicy nectarines and fresh mint to this classic summer salad is perfect for the August heat.

Crabby Mornings

Sometimes crab cakes are just the decadent start to the day that you crave. Make your own that boast amazing texture and flavor by blending different kinds of crabmeat and flakey panko with creamy mayonnaise and a great spice blend.

Summer Hummus

I adore hummus and could make a gorgeous hummus platter like this one the foundation of all of my summer meals. When pan-roasted chickpeas are added to the mix along with crunchy fresh vegetables and warm pita, all you need is a cold drink!

Two-Stepping Again

Grilling becomes quick and simple, even when you're talking turkey, when you embrace the power of a two-step cooking process. This becomes even more important when you use the power of each process to ensure moist, smokey turkey every time.
