Lightened Up Steak and Cheese Subs

This one is for Meat-and-Potatoes-Guy. He washes the piles of pots and pans that are the result of my kitchen experiments, and I’ve never heard him complain once. He’s a good sport when I request his assistance as “hand model” for my step-by-step photos. After I’ve prepared dinner, he patiently waits…

Peach Mango White Iced Tea

I just can’t get enough of fresh summer peaches these days. Right now, peaches are at the peak of their season, at the peak of their sweet and juicy flavor, and constantly on sale at the grocery store. So I’ve been snapping them up left and right and putting them…

Skinny Frozen Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

So, summer in Boston. It’s been raining here. For about one month. Those days when it hasn’t rained, it’s been so hot and humid, Calvin starts panting the second his paws step outside onto the covered porch. I’m not complaining. It’s summer after all.

Southwest Salmon with Black Bean-Corn Salsa

Easy Grilled Chive Oil Potato Packets

This recipe requires all of three ingredients (plus salt and pepper). Potatoes. Olive Oil. Chives. Sounds kind of plain. Sounds awfully simple. But something happens when you combine these three ingredients in a packet on the grill.

Grilled Chicken Caesar Skewers with Kale Pesto

Independence Day was one of my favorites as a kid (swimming all day! parties! staying up extra late for fireworks!) So I tend to think about my childhood this time of year. And kind of envy that former kid, who found magic and wonder in so many of the facets…

Star-Spangled Lemon Whoopie Pies with Berries and Cream

I’m a born-and-raised New Englander, so I’ve been eating (and loving) whoopie pies for as long as I can remember. But I don’t think everyone everywhere is as familiar with the whoopie pie. My college roommate (at a New England school but from a different part of the country) looked…

Summer Berry Avocado Salad with Mango Vinaigrette

I’m loving this fresh berry and avocado salad lately. It’s super nutritious but also tastes heavenly, with rich and creamy avocado, plus fresh and tart summer berries, plus crunchy pine nuts, plus sweet and velvety homemade mango vinaigrette.
