Nana Recipe Wednesday–Lemony Lamb Kebabs

Jul 16, 2014

Exactly what does one make for dinner when you’re feeding your six siblings and their spouses, along with their many, many (and I mean MANY) offspring?  Let’s ask Nana. Nana sez:  Make lemony lamb kebabs!  They are super easy to marinate and thread onto skewers and because the meat is cut up into small...

Easy Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream

Today is a super special day! It’s a day that requires peanut butter ice cream that’s filled with chunks of fudgy brownie. Honestly, every day is special enough for this Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream, I know. But today is really extra important. It’s my husband’s birthday! Birthdays aren’t really important to him. He’d...

The Mailbox: Reader recipe requests

Seeking fresh recipes I was hoping for recipes using fresh produce when it is available at its peak; when it is plentiful and ripe. This would be helpful through the summer months and even into autumn. Any and all recipes are appreciated. Thanks. ...

What’s Cooking: Fresh tomatoes + bread = soup or salad

Jul 15, 2014

The tomatoes are starting to come in.

Short of eating BLT sandwiches every day for a week (Sacramento, we’re looking at you), among the best ways to enjoy these early garden prizes is to combine them with bread in two classics with Mediterranean origins: gazpacho and panzanella. (The first is...

At least that’s what Steven Raichlen says – and we tend to agree. He’s the guy who has brought us more grilling books than one would think possible...

Pickled Jalapeños

Jul 14, 2014

I love pickled jalapeño slices.  I unabashedly pile them onto ballpark nachos, put them on hot dogs, chop ‘em up and mix them with various condiments to use as spreads or dips, etc.  There’s just something addicting about the slight heat mixed with that good vinegary tang.  I usually have a jar in the...

Raspberry Oatmeal Cookies

The softest & chewiest oatmeal cookies you’ll ever make, studded with fresh raspberries. Nobody will ever believe they’re healthy & less than 100 calories!     Can you get someone fired by giving them cookies?   I’m not sure I want to know the answer to that because I certainly thought I did last...
