5 Crazy Hot Dogs for the Young (Or Young at Heart)
What is it about hot dogs that lends them to playing with your food so well? Sure, you could cut up hot dogs into bite-size pieces or serve them in plain buns and call it a day. But why do that when you can transform a quality all-beef hot dog into fun food art that you (or, ahem, your kids) will go crazy for?! The next time your kids request hot dogs, consider skipping the traditional bun in favor of something way more fun!

The 3rd Step in Teaching My Kid to Cook: The Art of Grilled Cheese
My sons are smart. They figured out how to make grilled cheese sandwiches on their own, but they were discerning enough to notice the sandwiches made by their parents were far superior. And they wanted to learn our secrets. We’ve had years of practice, and we agree that if there’s one thing we can teach our children, it’s how to make an excellent hot sandwich, any time of day, from breakfast to late-night snack time. Let’s start with breakfast.

This Is the Black Bean-Mushroom Burger Recipe You’ve Been Waiting For
When it comes to summer food staples, it doesn’t get more essential than burgers. Patties made with beef might come to mind first, but veggie burgers deserve just as much attention, if not more. Pack patties with good things like beans and meaty vegetables like mushrooms and the results may well push your usual burger aside this summer. Especially because they contain an instant flavor booster: Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup.

Vegan Lunch Recipe: Curried Tofu Salad
Even if I didn’t eat a primarily vegan diet, I’m pretty sure I’d prefer tofu egg-less salad to the real thing. I love the texture of roughly crumbled tofu, the way you can flavor it any way you want, and the absence of heavy mayo (plus it keeps a lot better). Lately, my favorite tofu “egg” salad is one that incorporates bold curry powder, plump golden raisins, and roasted pumpkin seeds. Served as a sandwich or on a bed of greens, it makes an easy and healthy lunch.

Recipe: Joe Yonan’s Sloppy Vegan Joe
Can I just say how excited I am to share this recipe with you today? Joe Yonan’s book, Eat Your Vegetables, is a casual, homey celebration of all things vegetarian — aimed towards the solo cook and those who don’t need six servings of everything. It’s delicious and surprising, but it never pushes recipes into impractical territory.
Feb 5, 2020
Recipe: Vegan Sourdough Portobello Mushroom Sandwich
A good vegan sandwich needs some careful thought and construction. It has to have a good balance of textures and flavors, but it should also be satisfying without relying on meat or cheese. Portobello mushrooms are a popular ingredient choice (for good reason), and this one is no exception. Throw some sourdough bread in the toaster and let’s get cooking!
Feb 5, 2020
Recipe: Caesar White Bean Burgers
You don’t actually have to eat a Caesar salad to savor the essence of its best flavors. Inspired by the dressing that brings the classic salad together, these bean-filled veggie burgers get a big boost of flavor with the help of a few simple pantry ingredients. You won’t find bottled dressing anywhere near these burgers.

Lunch Recipe: Yogurt-Marinated Chicken & Creamy Greek Sauce
On Monday I went a little over the top with my Chicken Cordon Bleu-Croque Monsieur. To prove that’s not how I always eat, I’m sharing a lighter meal that’s perfect to enjoy any day of the week. It’s a good thing my favorite Greek joint in Atlanta is a trek from my house, or I just might go there every day (and that could get a little dangerous). Without fail I order the lamb gyro plate with a zesty salad and garlic roasted coin potatoes.

How To Make Italian Piada Wraps at Home
You know gelato and you know espresso, but do you know piada? These delicious sandwich wraps are sold on street corners throughout Italy, particularly in Emilia-Romagna, and are filled with everything from prosciutto and arugula to nutella and bananas. No plane tickets are necessary, though. Piada are incredibly easy to make at home. Think of piada (also called piadina) as a cross between Middle Eastern pita breads and Mexican flour tortillas.

Recipe: Grilled Eggplant Burgers with Halloumi Cheese
With summer in full swing, we’re grilling anything and everything that comes to mind, including seasonal vegetables, fruits, and yes, even cheese! Halloumi is one of the few cheeses that is actually sturdy enough to be grilled, and I like to take full advantage of that property. You also don’t need to an actual grill to enjoy a great “grilled” summer meal. For this finger-licking stacked veggie burger, all you need is a good grill pan, olive oil spray, and a hot stove.
Feb 3, 2020
Recipe: Beef Kofta with Tzatziki
If you’re looking for a variation on the standard meatball, it’s time to consider kofta. It is essentially a spiced meatball with many versions that can trace their origin across the Eastern Mediterranean and Central and South Asia. Depending on the region, kofta can be made with any number of ground meats or seafood.

Recipe: Freezer-Friendly Roasted Vegetable Burritos with Black Beans and Rice
In one fell swoop, these burritos have changed the way we do lunch in my house. When we decide we’re in the mood for burritos, we prep everything on the weekend — roasting the veggies, cooking the rice, even shredding the cheese — and then it’s Burrito Bonanza all week long, baby! All that prep might sound like a lot, but it takes 30 minutes, tops. Your future self is going to be very happy.

Recipe: Mediterranean Veggie Pita Sandwich
Craving a fast and healthy lunch? This simple sandwich packs a lot of flavor and nutrition, which makes it ideal for an easy weekday meal. I love stuffing leftover ingredients from previous meals into a pita pocket, sprinkling in a little cheese, salt, pepper, and calling it good. Simple, fast and satisfying. Who has time for much more? The beginning of a new year can be a hectic time for many of us. Simple, healthy and accessible meals is where it’s at for me in 2015.
Feb 3, 2020
Recipe: Mediterranean Breakfast Pitas
It’s easy to become rigid about what flavors are appropriate at breakfast time. Although cinnamon is delicious, it’s not the only spice on the morning market. Bringing your favorite Mediterranean-flavored sandwich from lunch to breakfast is as easy as putting an egg on it. This protein-packed combination of egg and hummus is a surefire way to start your day on the right note. Wrap it in a piece of foil, and you’re out the door with a portable breakfast.
Feb 3, 2020
Recipe: Mediterranean Chickpea and Feta Wraps
We’ve received a lot of requests over the years for healthy, portable meals. With busy lifestyles that juggle sports, after-school activities, and late nights in the office, it’s no wonder that people are looking for on-the-go meals. Wraps always fit the bill since they don’t need to be heated and can even be eaten with one hand. These vegetarian wraps are full of nutritious garbanzo beans and fresh vegetables and get a flavorful kick from salty feta.

Slow-Cooked Hoisin and Ginger Pork Wraps with Peanut Slaw
This recipe very handily fed almost a dozen people at a recent weekend get-together; there were even leftovers. It’s also a very easy and delicious recipe with terrific flavor. And yet it takes less than half an hour to put it all together. Perfect menu for company! This recipe is basically a riff on Elizabeth’s slow-cooked pork shoulder. Pork shoulder, also known as pork butt, is a relatively fatty and inexpensive cut of meat that is excellent for slow cooking and braises.
Feb 3, 2020
Recipe: Slow Cooker Maple-Mustard Pulled Pork
Pulled pork is one of those magical meals that every self-respecting meat-eater should be able to prepare by heart. And when you say pulled pork to any Southerner, you’ll hear descriptions of luscious pieces of tender meat rubbed with secret spice mixes and doused in sauces of spice and vinegar, tangy mustard, or sticky-sweet tomato and molasses. Although those classic smoky flavors are satisfying, sometimes you need a new spin on an old classic.
Feb 3, 2020
Recipe: Salmon Burgers with Lime Mayonnaise
To keep these salmon burgers moist and tender, chop the salmon by hand rather than in the food processor. The salmon is easiest to chop when quite cold, as this makes the fish more firm and easier to cut. You can stick fresh salmon in the freezer for about 20 minutes — it won’t freeze, but it will firm up a bit. These may also be cooked on the grill.
Feb 3, 2020
Recipe: Crème Fraîche Scrambled Egg and Smoked Salmon Sandwiches
Everyone likes to dress up now and again, right? Well, scrambled eggs feel the same way. Don’t deny them the opportunity to be adorned with some silky crème fraîche and aromatic herbs. This sandwich will raise your standard breakfast sandwich routine to the height of elegance. These eggs also look — and taste — sophisticated, cloaked in pink slices of smoked salmon. Serve them for brunch with a glass of sparkling wine, or even for dinner (wine still included).
Feb 3, 2020
Recipe: Salmon and Kale Caesar Wraps
Chicken Caesar wraps have had their time to shine, but now we forge ahead with a well-deserved (and much-needed) update. Inspired by the lunchtime classic, this salmon-packed version has everything you’d expect, with a twist. Crisp romaine is swapped for leafy kale, while rich and flaky canned salmon takes the place of chicken. To make this no-cook meal complete, everything is tossed with creamy Caesar dressing and shredded Parmesan before getting folded into your favorite tortilla.

Feb 3, 2020
Recipe: Vegetarian Biscuit and Gravy Sandwiches
Mushrooms duxelle is just a fancy French term that refers to sautéeing finely chopped mushrooms, onions, and herbs for a long time until they form a paste-like texture. The creamy mushrooms are delicious when spread over crusty bread. But an even better use is to add some sour cream and make a sumptuous gravy to pour over a warm, buttery biscuit.
Jan 31, 2020
Recipe: Fried Chicken Biscuits with Honey
Fried chicken on its own? Perfection. Fried chicken and waffles? Double perfection, which means fried chicken on a biscuit dripping with honey takes things to a whole new level. We’re taking this sandwich to weeknight status with shallow-fried chicken cutlets and the option to make or buy the biscuits — dealer’s choice. Frying big pieces of bone-in chicken is a bit of a daunting task, so this route is much easier.

Grill Recipe: Flatbread Stuffed with Curried Potatoes, Spinach, and Chickpeas
I’ll make no claims to authenticity with this recipe. It’s really more like an Indian-style calzone than the stuffed naan I’ve ordered in restaurants. But once those potatoes go all creamy in their spiced sauce and the flatbread bakes into a perfect toasty pocket on the grill, I’m pretty sure all those distinctions become moot.
Jan 29, 2020
Appetizer Recipe: Flatbreads with Goat Cheese, Caramelized Onions, and Basil
Here’s a recipe that can easily work both as a party-worthy appetizer or as a light supper, perhaps served with a salad dressed in a sharp, mustardy vinaigrette. The sweet caramelized onions, sharp goat cheese and pungent fresh basil work together beautifully, especially when supported by a crisp but chewy flatbread. Basil isn’t exactly in season right now but it’s pretty easy to find wherever you go.

Recipe: Beef-Free Bean Burger
Just because we’re eating a little lighter this month, doesn’t mean we don’t have the craving for a fat, tasty burger. This meatless version is flavorful enough, you don’t even miss your usual source of proteins. A quick and tasty, homemade option for sure!A weeknight burger is usually a quick fix. Patty and cook, that’s all it takes for your family to be eating in a hurry, but to our surprise, this recipe was just as quick.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Arugula, Apple & Chickpea Salad Wraps
This is has become one of our new favorite ways to pack a big salad for the times when we have to eat on the runLook for the biggest tortillas you can find for this recipe. The bigger, the better. We also prefer flour tortillas as they tend to stay a little softer and not crack as easily. Roll it up exactly as you would a burrito, by tucking in the two side-flaps and then rolling it right up.

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s Spiced Lamb Burgers
And it’s indicative of the playful and welcoming tone of this latest cookbook from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall of River Cottage farm.

This recipe for spicy lamb burgers on the grill is the perfect example.River Cottage Every Day can really be seen as a family cookbook.

Recipe: Spicy Lentil Wraps with Tahini Sauce
Let’s get this out of the way: This Trader Joe’s-inspired recipe won’t save you time. If you’re accustomed to running into TJ’s and grabbing their prepackaged Spicy Lentil Wrap (with Spicy Tahini Sauce!), then the chopping, boiling, and whisking required to make it at home might seem like more than you care to take on. But it’s such a worthy endeavor.
Jan 29, 2020
Snack Recipe: Turkey Wraps with Honey Mustard Dip
There’s something so simplistic about a plain old turkey wrap dunked in homemade honey mustard. Still, these lowly sandwiches got me through college, and they even made an appearance at my recent engagement party. (What can I say, I know what I like.) For some reason, they never get old. I always have the ingredients for turkey wraps on hand when I need a quick lunch, but that’s not saying they haven’t pulled their weight as dinner.

Vegetarian Recipe: Black Bean Edamame Burgers
Summer brings us outdoors more and more. For most of us, that means occasional (or frequent) grilling and picnicking. While burgers and hot dogs are a given, for vegetarians or for folks just looking to mix it up this year, homemade veggie burgers are the way to go.I was a vegetarian for many, many years and for most of that I lived on those soy-based fake meat products in the grocery stores. While easy and tasty, they’re overly processed, a bit expensive, and often not that nutritious.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Pork Belly Lettuce Wraps
A trip to the Korean market is always fun when I’m getting ready to entertain or simply preparing a weeknight meal. We love Korean food at our house, and pork belly lettuce wraps are always a fun and active way to serve delicious, flavorful food, no matter the occasion. These lettuce wraps celebrate the popular Korean dish Samgyeopsal Gui, which simply means grilled pork belly. Koreans traditionally eat Samgyeopsal while grilling the meat themselves at the table.

Grilling Recipe: Ultimate Beef & Bacon Burgers
I don’t know about the rest of the country, but Atlanta seems to be the epicenter of a giant burger boom. Everywhere you turn, there is a new chef-owned burger joint promising the best beefy bite between buns you’ve ever tasted. But are those $20 burgers really worth it? Perhaps once you try these Beef and Bacon Burgers you won’t think so. I love a good burger as much as the rest of the American (meat-eating) population, maybe even more.
