On My Plate

The featured dish on my plate is Tequila & Lime Pie! It’s refreshing, cool, boozy and creamy, and its name is a tribute to our musical friends, Glenn Alexander and Oria! Cheers!

Fuzzy Navel Sorbet

In honor of my younger self, I have found a way to turn a favorite old-school “cocktail” into a fun, summery dessert!

Zesty Three Bean Salad

Unlike the so-sweet version I grew up with, this updated salad is zesty with plenty of garlic and fresh herbs. It’s easy to make and perfect for summer picnics!

Salted Maple-Bacon Ice Cream

In celebration of National Ice Cream Day today, I’m whipping together two of my all-time favorite flavors into one deliciously sinful scoop!

Orange & Honey-Ginger Fruit Salad

It’s a rare occasion for me to share a “two-ingredient” hack, but this simple twist is so easy and flavorful, you need to try it at least once this summer!

Shrimp & Quinoa Salad

This simple but tasty lunch is quick and easy to prepare, using two make-ahead ingredients, and it packs a lot of nutrition, too!

Compound Butters for Grilled Corn

Compound butter may sound complicated, but it could not be simpler—use it to add a little pizzazz to corn, fish, shrimp, steak or whatever else you are pulling off the grill this summer!

Homemade Pistachio Ice Cream

I put a couple of easy twists on my standard, custard-based ice cream formula to arrive at this unique yet classic pistachio flavor. Let’s celebrate National Ice Cream Month!
