Recipe: Red Fruit Salad with Lemon-Vanilla Bean SyrupRecipes
I suppose one could make the case that dressing a fruit salad is a bit like gilding the lily, especially when the fruit is at the height of season. To that argument I say, a little extra bling never hurt anybody! In this fruit salad from Yossy Arefi, the bling comes in the form of sweet-tart lemon-vanilla bean syrup. Beyond the syrup (which you can use to jazz up sparkling water or a cocktail), this fruit salad is all about using what you like, what looks good, and what smells good.

There’s no other lunch in my weight-loss arsenal that serves me better than these rolls. They happen to be both raw and vegan, but that isn’t why I love them.

And while there is undeniably something health-food-hippie about them, even my husband eats them up.

As someone who consumes far too much muesli with yogurt, it’s not surprising that bircher muesli (or “overnight oats,” as it has popularly become known) is also a favorite of mine. Overnight oats are incredibly easy to make ahead of time, and they’re perfect for on-the-go breakfasts. This particular recipe is a fun variation on my usual overnight oats. It takes a bit of extra time to make the crumbly streusel topping but it’s definitely worth it.

Shredded Butternut “Cheddar” Is My Alternative to Shredded CheeseSkills
My daughter’s first word was cheese — a developmental milestone that delighted my husband and I greatly. Like many American kids, a nibble on cheddar provided one of her first culinary adventures. And to this day, the sight of Parmesan, brie, or anything cheese-like elicits an almost apoplectic reaction. The kid loves cheese. So did I. Especially the orange kind. Whether it came from a block, grated, or in plastic-wrapped slices, cheddar played a very prominent role in my early life.

Peaches Are My Totally Awesome Substitute for Bacon (Yes, Really!)Skills
For most of my youth, I preferred eggs scrambled or in omelette form. And by the time my taste buds understood and appreciated the delicacy that was eggs Benedict, it was too late. I was on a strict low-sodium diet and could no longer eat the salty layer of Canadian bacon, nor the buttered English muffin.

Toast is certainly having a moment. Avocado toast is popping up on numerous cafe menus around our city, and I’ve been to a number of spots that serve toast with nut butters “made in-house.” And while I love a crusty slice of toasted bread slathered thick with almond butter, I often scoff at the price tag.

My Favorite Nut-Free Alternative to Peanut ButterPeople
As someone with severe nut allergies and a child in a nut-free preschool, I am over-the-moon happy about all the peanut butter alternatives available these days, from store-bought tahini and sunflower butter to homemade pumpkin seed spread (and pumpkin seed butter cups). But even with these satisfactory PB-replacements, I think we can still look at other options, beyond tree nuts and seeds. Because, with an open mind, one ingredient limitation often leads to another ingredient revelation.

Baking a whole eggplant is something of a culinary metamorphosis. The hot oven transforms eggplant’s firm, spongy interior into a luxurious, velvety texture, which in turn lends its merits to savory dips and vegan bolognese.

Our testing resulted in a dead-simple solution with stellar results.

If you don’t know about succotash, you should. Like potato salad or coleslaw, it’s a frequent player at summer cookouts. While a classic succotash is all about corn, lima beans, and maybe some tomatoes or red bell peppers, this one, from Jeanine Donofrio of Love & Lemons, eschews the norm. Swap out the limas for chickpeas, add in a mix of tender summer squash, and boost the flavor with smoked paprika.

I used to be an insufferably picky eater. I hated all meat, most vegetables, spicy food, nuts — the list went on and on. I was afraid to try any new foods because, what if I didn’t like them? That apprehension made me reflexively dislike anything unfamiliar I put in my mouth, leaving me even more fearful of trying it again, a self-reinforcing cycle that left me living on a diet of cereal, fruit, and rice and beans.
