A Holiday Feast

Holiday cooking shouldn’t be stressful. This month, we’ve created three dishes that will be fancy enough for the occasion but without requiring too much fuss to prepare. This month’s menu features an appetizer, and entrée and a dessert that can be prepared at least several hours in advance. Dig into this colorful trio of courses and enjoy!

Summer’s Swan Song

Our two must-make recipes for savoring the end of summer include a cool drink created in a London Bar in the 1800s and a Lobster Cobb Salad with lots of toppings and a champagne twist.

Keep Your Cool

We love it when cooking has no heat involved! With just a little bit of blending, chopping and minimal effort a healthy, cool meal can be made to keep the late summer heat at bay.

Red, White and Blueberry

Nothing says summer like blueberry pie, but we’d like to introduce you to the galette: a rustic French dessert that sounds fancy but is simple to make. And don’t forget a drink! “Smash” style cocktails are fruity and refreshing.

Lighten up

Whether you’re looking to spice up the average Taco Tuesday or incorporate more fresh fish into your diet, these blackened fish tacos are bursting with flavor along with the cabbage slaw. To accompany the tacos, there’s really nothing better than a cold, crunchy, chunky homemade salsa when it’s hot outside. This black bean and corn salsa is a versatile dip that’s perfect for snacking with chips, packs great for a picnic at the beach, and saves well in the refrigerator for a few days.

Bravo for Brunch!

Every brunch calls for some kind of savory egg-based dish; we’re partial to the frittata. Everything you love about a quiche but without the fuss of a crust, frittatas make for great brunch fare because they can be served hot or at room temperature. A simple whisk of eggs and dairy poured over sautéed vegetables, they’re extremely forgiving and flexible.

Garden Variety

The vegetable at the center of this recipe boasts its own nutritional superpowers. Asparagus is one of the most nutritionally well-balanced vegetables; it is high in folic acid and is a good source of potassium, fiber, thiamine, and vitamins A, B6 and C.
