Learning to cook is hard. And the (free) resources we have at our disposal — despite the millions of recipes, videos, and courses online — tend not to be so beginner-friendly.
I seriously love the clients I work with. One of them is Vidalia Onions and the Flavors of Summer (a delicious group of food companies)! I love the freedom they give me to allow my creative mind to run wild and pull together fun ideas for the summer season! For example, this is a backyard gri

Food memory throwbacks are the best kind of memories. The smells, the tastes, they’re essential to our life experience and should continue to be experienced even if allergies, sensitivities, or a change in eating style threaten to ruin the show.

Hi Everyone, Today I have for you a salad that I had at the Grand Lux Cafe in Las Vegas. I just fell in love with this salad and I had to re-create it at home! The only problem was I never got to taste the dressing at the restaurant because the waitress brought me balsamic and this is supposed
Lately, I’ve been really into the whole “ href="http://www.thegraciouspantry.com/what-is-clean-eating/">Clean Eating” phenomenon because I really do think that eating “cleaner” foods (i.e. foods that are not processed, made with artificial ingredients, etc) is not only the way to seriou
Next time you entertain try this jam-filled cake with chocolate glaze. You can top the cake with glazed raspberry cream puffs for extra decadence--which we love--but the cake is fantastic on its own, as well.
You'll barely spend any time in the kitchen with this one! Whoo! Slice zucchini into discs and scoop a little bowl into the center of each zucchini round using a melon baller or spoon. In a bowl, mix feta, tomato, herbs, vinegar, lemon juice [and a little of the zest if you love lemon flavor!], and
These tarts are one of those recipes I cannot wait to make again, we all liked them that much! The garlic onion pistachio filling is one I keep thinking of, coming up with new ways to use it. Although ‘by the spoonful’ is a good choice.
This is my twist on a traditional dip that is usually filled with fat. Serve this at your next party or bring to your next potluck.

Game nights call for easy-to-eat-one-handed dips and snacks and appetizers. May I suggest this dip with some crusty baguettes or French bread? It pairs tomato, basil and Parmesan, which is always a winning combination, and it makes plenty for 6, 8 or even 10 people to snack on. Make it, then enjoy w
The easiest way to incorporate protein into a smoothie is through yogurt. Non-fat Greek yogurt is thick and packed with a ton of protein. The yogurt will also add a rich creamy texture to the smoothie that your kids will love. For a child who is lactose intolerant or allergic to milk, replace this
This recipe is really simple and quick. I have the crappiest blender on earth but I mange to wait the 8 minutes it takes to whip this up without whining too much. I can’t really do ice cream because it’s just too sweet for me so this satisfies my craving for a nice cold drink and my sweet toot
