Beat the Wheat: Gluten-Free Tomato-Feta Tart

AKA Who You Callin’ a Tart?  Oh Yeah, This. Late summer is my favorite time of year, and it all goes by too quickly, with its lazy weekends, marathon gab sessions (with bonus day drinking!), birthday cake with too many candles, beautiful sunsets, and farmers markets exploding with gorgeous colors and flavors. August is just […]

The Best Back-to-School (or Work) Lunches

Whether you’re packing lunch to eat in your cube or for your kids to have at school, it’s important to find things that are easy, quick and new. And regardless of your best intentions at 7:30am, the key is making something you (or your kids, spouse or cubicle-neighbor) actually want to eat once lunch time rolls around. With that in mind, […]

52 Weeks Fresh: What Time Is It? Tomato Time

Sun-dried tomatoes are an excellent way to concentrate that jammy summer tomato flavor. But when it’s too hot to turn on the oven, take advantage of the sun and use your car. A car dashboard makes the perfect substitute oven.

Gather ’round and silence your chuckles because today’s lesson is all about spatchcocking. And it’s going to add some serious A-game cred to your run-of-the-mill grilled chicken.

Beat the Wheat: Gluten-Free Peach Pie

AKA Everything’s Just Peachy This is the very first pie I made after being diagnosed with celiac disease. It’s fruity and sweet, but ginger and a bit of cracked black pepper give it the tiniest of kicks. I grew up eating fruit pies my uncle made in his bakery, or that my mom made at home. […]

Vinegar is one of the essential ingredients in hot sauce. So while the grill’s still sizzling, get in on the homemade condiment trend by using white vinegar in […]

Dinner Rush! Mojo Turkey Burgers

If you’re anything like me, you’ll read about mojo sauce for the first time and immediately ask why your food is in need of a boost of “moe-joe.” Turns out my meal was perfectly shagadelic all on its own – it was my pronunciation that was all off.

An Indian Feast Inspired by The Hundred-Foot Journey

  Within minutes of the start of The Hundred-Foot Journey, regular buttered popcorn will cease to be enough. The film is a two-hour bonanza of spices, simmering curries, sauteed vegetables and roasted meats, so no ordinary concession can possibly stand a chance.

Hump Day Snack: Mojito Pie

Ever wish you could have your cake and drink it too? This Mojito Pie attempts to grant that wish. Start off with a traditional mojito-making method by muddling fresh mint leaves and lime juice together to release all of the flavors. (Pro tip: Make some extra for an actual mojito to drink while you work.) As you […]

Dinner Rush! Grilled Carne Asada Tostadas

The tostada is to Tex-Mex what the club sandwich is to a chrome-and-neon diner. This open-faced sandwich comes high-brow or low-brow however you want to have it, served up on a flat (or sometimes slightly concave) crisp tortilla. Enjoy one for a snack, two for a meal or three for those moments of absolute desperation. […]
