During the summer months, I try to do as little cooking as possible. Many of the items on this sampler platter can be made and refrigerated ahead of time, which makes assembly a simple and delicious snap.
Roast turkey is a meal that we rarely eat, unless it’s a holiday. Although we generally like it on the first day, we have to get a little creative with our leftovers. This recipe, which works just well for chicken, is a welcome change to the usual “heat and eat” routine.
Recently, a friend of mine had a baby, and I volunteered to bring her and her spouse a home-cooked meal on a particularly cold and windy evening. Since her partner is a vegan, I made this hearty lentil stew paired with whole-wheat beer bread.
Everyone seems to have a special or secret chili recipe – especially dads, for some unknown reason. This is not one of those. This recipe is a simple, no-frills chili base for those winter days when you just want something warm and satisfying.
This simple stir-fry gets a lot of flavor from a few ingredients that are typically on sale during the summer months. The heat level can be dialed up or down to suit your tastes; although people who (unfortunately) think cilantro tastes like soap should probably steer clear!
During the summer, the last thing I want to do when I get home is cook dinner over a hot stove. Thankfully, I can come home to these easy-to-assemble tacos with a flavorful black bean filling.
