BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Tacos

Wed, 07/18/2018 - 14:01

Tacos are my “single girl” food. You know, the food that you make whenever your partner, kids, or roommates are out of town and you get to sit down and be really honest about what you and only you feel like eating? I never tire of them and am always looking for ways to amp up my taco game.

10 Ways Use a Pint of Berries This Summer

Tue, 07/17/2018 - 14:00

Blueberries! Strawberries! Raspberries! Just give me ALL the berries!

The love for sweet, ripe, juicy berries and other fruits has always been strong in my family — my mom often says that the one thing she could be sure my brother and I would eat when we were kids was the fruit salad.

For me, the farmers’ market this time of year is like walking into a candy store. So many choices. So little time.

Skillet Chicken with Cheesy Orzo and Zucchini

Mon, 07/16/2018 - 14:00

There is a true beauty to one-skillet dinners, and it’s not just the fact that there is only one pan to wash.

It’s just very satisfying to place a skillet right in the middle of the table and scoop out essentially your whole meal. It’s family style dining at its best. (Just be careful of the hot pan!)

Greek Pasta Salad

Sun, 07/15/2018 - 14:30

Packed with fresh tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers—not to mention Kalamata olives and feta cheese—this pasta salad has all the flavor of your favorite Greek salad! The lemony garlicky dressing is also flavorful enough to stand up to olives and feta, but it doesn’t overpower the more delicately flavored ingredients such as cucumber and tomato.

Zucchini Tomato Quiche

Sat, 07/14/2018 - 14:30

One thing we gardeners can count on in the peak of summer is a surplus of zucchini and tomatoes, right? That basil plant in the corner of the garden bed is pretty happy too.

If you are looking for ideas of what to make with the most summery of summer produce, check out this zucchini tomato quiche!

It’s simple enough as quiches go—shallots, shredded zucchini, an assortment of colorful cherry tomatoes, basil, and herbs with a custard base of eggs, milk, cream, sour cream, and Parmesan.

Tomatoes, basil, and zucchini play well together as a matter of principle, and they work beautifully in this quiche. Every bite is a taste of summer.

How to Blind Bake a Pie Crust

Sat, 07/14/2018 - 14:24

Many sweet and savory pie recipes require pre-baking or “blind baking” a crust. No one really knows where the term got its name, but “blind” baking a crust means baking it without a filling.

Meal Plan for July Week 3

Sat, 07/14/2018 - 14:00

This month, Summer Miller is back, sharing her meal plans for July. Summer is a mom, a full-time food writer, and also helps test the fabulous recipes we bring you every week at Simply Recipes.

Summer has arrived launching cannonballs of heat and humidity. The air is thick and heavy like wet blankets. I can feel the weight of it on my skin and in my lungs.

I wade through the sticky and heat-stricken Midwestern masses by day, awaiting the cooler evenings that seem endless this time of year.

The fireflies are out in droves looking for love in the twilight skies and between blades of grass peppered with white clover. Every evening is an opportunity for dinner and a show. Meals by the window or on the porch suit me just fine in July even in the thick summer air.

Try This! 4 Great Add-Ins for Hummus

Tue, 07/10/2018 - 14:00

When you are pondering an appetizer for a party, you can never go wrong with hummus. It’s popular with kids and adults, it’s easy to make in quantities large or small, and it’s highly adaptable.

Earthy, savory, creamy, protein-packed: hummus is a great base for all kinds of add-ins.

Sure there are a bunch of pre-made flavor variations available at the store, but it’s so easy to make your own “house” version. Then you not only have a crowd-pleasing party appetizer (or snack), you also have bragging rights!

Lentil Salad with Summer Vegetables

Mon, 07/09/2018 - 14:00

As the weather warms, I spend a lot of time outside. My garden is flanked by the trailing tendrils of cantaloupe and watermelon on one side, and a uniform row of ten rhubarb plants on the other. The raised beds in between burst with any number of vegetables, including tomatoes, peppers, salad greens, and 200 sets of onions.

After weeks of tending, harvesting, and then cleaning the fruits of my labor, I’m ready to prepare them in the simplest of ways. I don’t want to worry about food; I want to enjoy a meal with the people I’m feeding.

Besides, more often than not, fresh produce needs little more than a vinaigrette and a good toss to turn it into something for the table.

Blueberry Crumb Bars

Sun, 07/08/2018 - 14:00

Blueberries are such a popular snack in our house—my 3-year-old son eats them by the handful. But they also make their way into a lot of the baking and cooking I do.

He often requests them in pancakes and muffins, and more recently, in these blueberry crumb bars.

Meal Plan for July Week 2

Sat, 07/07/2018 - 14:00

This month, Summer Miller is back, sharing her meal plans for July. Summer is a mom, a full-time food writer, and also helps test the fabulous recipes we bring you every week at Simply Recipes.

I ease into my work weeks like I ease into my mornings – slow and simple. I do my best to leave my meetings to the other days of the week, and let Mondays serve as the day I set myself up to take care of odd and ends, dig out from emails that have accumulated over the weekend, and take stock of the week ahead.

When I transition to dinner on Monday nights, I take the same approach. I want to hang out with my kids and husband, find out how their days went and see what lies ahead for them. I don’t want to be distracted by over complicated menus.

These kimchi deviled eggs transcend your average deviled egg by incorporating classic Korean ingredients such as kimchi, sesame, and gochujang, a Korean chili paste.

The result is wildly exciting. The sesame and gochujang add nuttiness, sweetness, and spice while the kimchi contributes a bright, sour flavor with a hint of funk.
