10 Ways Use a Pint of Berries This Summer
Blueberries! Strawberries! Raspberries! Just give me ALL the berries! The love for sweet, ripe, juicy berries and other fruits has always been strong in my family — my mom often says that the one thing she could be sure my brother and I would eat when we were kids was the fruit salad. For me, […]

Greek Pasta Salad

Greek Pasta Salad
Packed with fresh tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers—not to mention Kalamata olives and feta cheese—this pasta salad has all the flavor of your favorite Greek salad! The lemony garlicky dressing is also flavorful enough to stand up to olives and feta, but it doesn’t overpower the more delicately flavored ingredients such as cucumber and tomato. Continue […]

Lentil Salad with Summer Vegetables
As the weather warms, I spend a lot of time outside. My garden is flanked by the trailing tendrils of cantaloupe and watermelon on one side, and a uniform row of ten rhubarb plants on the other.

You can slice the cauliflower any direction you like, just be watchful of your fingertips on the mandoline and work over a bowl to catch all the bits of flying florets.

Roasted Cauliflower and Chickpeas with Garlic Cilantro Yogurt
Curry Roasted Cauliflower and Chickpeas with a Garlic Yogurt Sauce may just be my new favorite meatless meal and side dish. It’s so full of flavor and you will be fighting for the last bit of just charred cauliflower and rich, nutty chickpeas. I am officially obsessed with this dish.

Endive, Romaine, and Orange Salad for Two
The ultimate date-night first course: eat it with a knife and fork or eat it with your hands. Either way it’s more fun if you share it off the same plate.

Instant Pot Chickpea Salad with Lemon, Feta, and Fresh Dill
Chickpeas are cheaper and heartier in texture when made from dried, rather than canned beans. And the Instant Pot makes quick work of them.

Hoppin’ John
This was the year I fell in love with black eyed peas. (The food. Already loved the band.) They have a wonderful flavor, almost smoky, even without bacon or ham. Earlier this last summer we put them in a salad with feta and spinach. So so good. Continue reading “Hoppin’ John” »

Retro Strawberries-and-Cream Pretzel Tart
When I was growing up in Nebraska in the 1980s, my mom was the queen of what are now considered retro foods from that era. I have fond memories of her pretzel-crusted strawberry Jell-O and cream cheese “salad.” Of course, now that I’m a food snob—or food elitist, as my dad would say—I have to […]
