Greek Tomato-Feta Quinoa Salad

Lately, Chris and I can’t get enough of those Greek-style pasta salads they sell at the grocery deli. All those bright, crisp flavors of lemon, tomato, cucumber, and fresh herbs are so perfect and irresistible during the warm weather months. So this weekend I decided to do my own homemade Greek-style…

Peach Crostini with Whipped Feta and Honey Balsamic

A few years ago, I decided to take a risk and try something that sounded a little unusual at the time: a watermelon feta salad. And that was when I first discovered the surprisingly, wonderfully perfect flavor combo of sweet, juicy summer fruit mixed with salty, rich cheese. The combo sounded…

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.

Okay, I’m definitely complaining. Because it’s…

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…
