Grilled Chicken Salad with Corn, Peaches, Blue Cheese, and Balsamic-Honey Syrup 1

Until about a year ago I was completely grill-lazy. Which was strange because I went through a grill-all-the-time phase where I wouldn’t even let my hubby touch the grill. (Ok, that’s a stretch…I insisted on being the primary griller, but far be it from me to completely stand between a man and his fire.)

Shrimp, Black Bean, and Tomato Salad with Feta and Spicy Southwest Dressing

So it’s almost 5 o’clock on a random weekday afternoon. Your bestie sends you an email saying she has the evening free, and she wants to pop by for a visit around 7. Your fridge is empty (ironically, tonight was going to be grocery shopping night), and you scramble to think about what you can pick up for a quick, easy, and delicious dinner. I have you covered with this lovely dish....

Warm Roasted Red Onion + Corn Salad

I go crazy for onion. I’m the girl who orders her sandwiches/burgers/pizza/omelet/salad with extra, extra onion. And even with double extra, I find that most places are still a bit too skimpy with the onion for my liking. (Good thing my hubby is an extra, extra onion kind of guy too.) Normally I’d say this salad is all about the onion for me…because just look below and see how gorgeous that roasted red onion is....

Quinoa Corn Patties with Cool and Creamy Onion Dip

Corn is amazing this time of year…it’s almost as sweet as candy! It’s definitely one of my favorite sides for any grilled meal, and usually (since I’m a little corn-crazy), I end up grilling or steaming a few too many ears of it. That’s always a good thing though!...

Roasted Corn with Indian-Spiced Yogurt Sauce

At the peak of corn season when fresh, local corn is at its finest, my favorite way to eat it is steamed on the cob.  I may add a touch of salt or butter, but other than that it needs nothing else.  After I’ve had my fill of eating corn on the cob this way for countless meals, I like to switch it up a little and look for different ways to make it.  This dish was inspired by a recipe I came across last winter in an Indian cookbook that I had bookmarked to make during corn season.  The sauce has deep flavor from the onions and complexity from the spices.  It’s creamy and looks absolutely indulgent, […]...

Vegetable Fritters

Fritters are a the perfect summertime dish to help use up veggies from your garden.  They’re super versatile – you can substitute any veggies that you like or have on hand.  Serve them as appetizers, or they make a delicious side dish along with fish or chicken off the grill, but in the summer when I’m in the mood for a light meal I think they make a fantastic lunch or dinner by themselves. I’m sending this recipe to Reeni of Cinnamon & Spice for her Side Dish Showdown.  July’s theme is Anything Goes!  I’m also sending this recipe off to Chaya of Sweet and Savory for […]...

Roasted Corn Chowder

Like many other veggies, when corn is roasted, its naturally sweet, nutty flavor is brought out.  The beauty of oven-roasting canned corn is that you don’t need to wait for outdoor grilling weather and corn to be in season to enjoy this delicious dish.  This chowder was served as a first-course as part of my Mother’s Day Menu.  The lovely flavor of roasted corn is highlighted in this easy dish that takes less than half an hour to make. I’m sending this recipe off to Chaya of Sweet and Savory for My Meatless Mondays.  Be sure to check it out for some excellent vegetarian inspiration! Roasted Corn Chowder […]...
