Moroccan Grilled Eggplant

I enjoy this recipe because it can be changed so many ways by adding different herbs and spices and also because it is just as delicious without adding meat.

Peach Cobbler Muffins

Be sure to use ripe peaches for these muffins, they'll turn out moist and infused with peach flavor.

Chicken with 40 Garlic Cloves

Thank goodness, you don’t actually need to peel the 40 cloves of garlic here. This easy chicken dish is moist and infused with flavor.

Fattoush Salad

This classic Lebanese salad packed with toasted pita, summer vegetables, and loads of herbs tends to be a hit with everyone, and is filling enough to serve as a meal.

Greek Lamb with Orzo

Fragrant, saucy lamb is ladled over orzo with loads of chopped parsley, then topped with generous amounts of feta and kalamata olives in this hearty, Greek (-inspired) meal. This crowd-worthy dish is easy enough to make (just two dirty pots!), but doesn’t taste that way.

Smoky Roasted Cherry Jam

This jam could be served with roasted chicken or pork tenderloin, or spread on a grilled cheese sandwich.

Simple Strawberry Compote

This two ingredient compote couldn’t be easier! Serve it on waffles, fresh toast, pancakes, oatmeal, or ice cream. When it’s cherry season, try using pitted cherries in place of up to half of the strawberries. And when fresh strawberries are no longer available, frozen would be a great substitute.

Strawberry Soba Noodle Salad

When the weather turns warm, cold noodle salads always hit the spot. The unusual addition of strawberries here adds a welcome sweet-tart contrast to the salty miso dressing. Serve alongside anything grilled.

Vibrant Spring Socca with Basil-Arugula Pesto

Socca is similar to a crepe, and is made with chickpea flour, which imparts a mild, nutty flavor. This recipe makes one giant socca, but it’s easy to make small ones instead if you’d prefer.

Roasted Rhubarb

Here’s a delicious way to serve rhubarb if you’re not interested in pie. Served warm, it’s incredible served with crème fraîche, whipped cream, or ice cream.

Arugula and Asparagus Ribbon Salad

During asparagus’s short season, serving it raw is a great way to enjoy it. Shaving the spears into thin ribbons and briefly marinating them in a quick vinaigrette turns the asparagus soft and almost creamy.

Mushroom, Bacon, and Arugula Skillet

This quick skillet isn't just for breakfast - it's an easy dish to prepare any time. Savory mushrooms, bacon, and eggs pair wonderfully with fresh green arugula.

Vietnamese Caramelized Pork

Served with steamed white rice, this is a restaurant-quality meal that's surprisingly straightforward to prepare.

Creamy Spinach and Coconut Linguine

This is a gorgeous, Thai-inspired pasta dish, rich and creamy with coconut milk, ginger, and garlic, and tinted deep green from spinach and mint.

Spiced Strawberry Cashew Shake

This rich and creamy strawberry shake is warmly spiced with vanilla, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, and ginger. Don't forget to soak the cashews overnight!

Spicy Beet Crostini

Sautéeing beet greens in olive oil turns them meltingly tender, making them a delicious topping for crostini.

Toasted Hazelnut Chocolate Milk

Toasting the hazelnuts instead of leaving them raw results in maximum hazelnut flavor, so don't leave this step out! This nut milk is mildly sweet, but you could add a teaspoon or more of your sweetener of choice, if it's not quite sweet enough for you.

Grapefruit Yogurt Cake

Deliciously flavored with grapefruit, this cake is light and springy. Nice for a sweet breakfast, or of course, for dessert.

Rustic French Beets

Possibly the most delicious way you’ve eaten beets, this recipe uses the greens in addition to the roots. They’re served with creamy Boucheron cheese and warm, crusty bread.

Beet and Poppy Seed Muffins

 

These rosy-hued muffins flecked with dark poppy seeds are great in the morning on your way out the door. Dairy- and gluten-free, they’ll be a hit with everyone in the house.

 

Fennel and Black Olive Ciabatta Pizza

Using ciabatta bread for pizza crust makes getting dinner on the table fast and easy. This pizza is topped with a tasty and classic Italian combination of sweet cherry tomatoes, fennel, briney black olives and savory parmesan.
