When turning on your oven is absolutely the last thing you want to do for fear that even the slightest change in ambient temperature will cause you to spontaneously combust, easy meals like sandwiches are key. You can get bored of the stereotypical sandwich options pretty quickly, though, which is where this egg sandwich with green bean slaw comes in. The slaw, which is probably my favorite part of this sandwich, consists of shaved green beans, red onion, radishes, and spicy olives; all dressed in a tangy, salty, creamy feta dressing. Serve with a sliced hard boiled egg for some extra protein and you’ll have yourself a sandwich worth getting excited about, even when the current heat wave seems like it’s too much to bear.

Summer squash sides are a matter of course at this time of year, but just because we practically have them coming out of our ears, doesn’t mean they have to be boring! This summer squash and tomato crumble, with it’s bursts of sweet tomato juiciness and its crispy cheesy topping elevates summer’s most abundant vegetable to a whole new level of delicious.

Nobody wants to be the hungry girl at the barbeque. As a vegetarian, this often means munching on a mediocre plate of lettuce that barely has the staying power to fuel sunbathing, let alone a round of pool volleyball. Not good.

Which is why when I’m headed to a summer fiesta, I always try to have a fabulously hefty salad in tow. My latest favorite is this broccolini and sweet sesame salad. It is chock full of green on green on green in the form of broccolini, snow peas and green beans, with some legumes added for protein and heartiness. The dressing is nutty, sweet and salty and is a nice change from the vinaigrettes that you so often see at this time of year.

Avocado Tomato Enchiladas Recipe

Creamy avocado is the surprising filling in this cheesy enchilada.

Summer and Tex-Mex go together like margaritas and Fridays.

While it may not be Friday just yet, enchiladas are an anytime kinda thing. And they make every day taste like Friday, especially when they are stuffed with avocados, swiss chard and bell peppers and topped with a tangy tomato sauce and some creamy Manchego. With each passing bite you’ll forget that we still have five days until weekend freedom hits, but who’s counting?

Fresh berries add an unexpected kick to a grilled cheese favorite.

Strawberries in desserts are expected (and delicious) but it’s when we mix our sweets with our savories that things start to get really interesting. In the past, I’ve had great success pairing strawberries with basil and separately, with balsamic…but what about all three together? If this grilled cheese is any indication, then they are a trio made in heaven. The syrupy, almost sweet tangy vinegar is perfect for really bringing the berries and herbs together, while the brie unites them in sandwich unity, making each bite more exciting than the last.

Singapore-Style Rice Noodles Recipe

Now that summer is officially here, I’m hoping that warm weather will come with it. And with that comes a need for recipes that don’t require you to turn on the stove or oven for any extended period of time. The best thing about rice noodles is that all they need is a soak in hot water to get soft. So, just stir fry up a variety of veggies (here I’ve used bell peppers and cabbage), mix up a curry-infused sauce and dinner will be on the table within fifteen minutes, with minimal heat generated.

Black Bean Feta Tacos with Strawberry Salsa Recipe

Fresh berries add an unexpected twist to the feta and black bean tacos.

I can’t seem to control myself around strawberries these days. I buy flat after flat with the intention of DOING something with them, but they just look so juicy and sweet and perfect that I end up eating them, straight from the carton, unabashedly “as is”.

That is, until I made these tacos. And now I can’t think of doing anything else with them! They are the perfect mix of sweet spicy savory and allow you to still appreciate the beautiful flavor of in-season berries, just in a new (and equally delicious) light.

Malaysian Hot and Sour Noodles with Tofu and Bok Choy Recipe

Boy Choy and tofu has layers of texture in this dish.

When in doubt, make noodles.

That’s typically my motto, and this past week when I was having both my boyfriend and my brother over for dinner, that’s exactly what I did. Neither of these two are really tofu or vegetable enthusiasts but I handed them a bowl of these hot-and-sour noodles that were chock full of both..and miraculously enough they went back for seconds. Now that is the power of the noodle for you.

Fresh bok choy lends a fresh crunch to this noodle dish.

Fettuccine Asparagus

Fettuccine Asparagus

After a winter filled with every variation on grey and beige, I’m ready to infuse my life and my food with a little color.

Dinner made out of fifty shades of green? Yes, please.

Asparagus season is finally upon us and I’m ready to take full advantage of it. Here, I’ve turned these lovely spears into a vibrantly flavored, pesto-like puree which I then used as a pasta sauce for some spinach fettuccine.

Fettuccine Asparague

Two delicious shades down, forty-eight to go.
