Sourdough Pumpkin Spice Waffles

If you have never tried them, sourdough waffles are the best thing going—with delicate, crispy exterior and soft, fluffy goodness on the inside. And the pumpkin spice flavors are making these perfect for Better Breakfast Month!

Homemade Giardiniera

A homemade giardiniera is not only more flavorful, but also far crunchier than the jarred versions. My choice of ingredients this time gave me a colorful surprise!

Easy Puff Pastry Pinwheels

This recipe is simple to make because it relies on store-bought puff pastry, but it has a little bit of “wow” factor, thanks to a pretty shaping method that is very easy to do.

I’m bringing a spicy taste of Mexico to the table for Better Breakfast Month, featuring a chorizo and potato hash with all the yumminess of roasted Mexican street corn, a crispy-edged sunny egg and cool, creamy avocado.

For a big-flavor twist on pasta salad, I let my imagination run wild through an Italian deli case and all the salty, meaty, cheesy flavors one might find there.

A creamy, sumptuous “Alfredo” sauce with none of the guilt associated with eating tons of cream and cheese? How is this even possible?

As summer inches toward its end, I have been considering ways to liven up my basic potato salad recipe, and it occurred to me that tzatziki—the bold and zesty, Greek yogurt and cucumber sauce—could be a terrific addition to a potato salad.

Tangy Apple Cole Slaw

My go-to creamy cole slaw gets a tart and tangy update from Granny Smith apple and a specialty vinegar. It’s a perfect side for whatever you’re grilling in these waning days of summer.

This is how you celebrate National S’mores Day in the middle of August, when it’s too hot to light a campfire—easy, no-egg ice cream with marshmallow and chocolate fudge swirls!
