 This recipe reminds me of my first ever job at a hot dog stand in Göteborg. I used to love serving the late night weekend crowds who were outgoing and tipped well. Swede Doggy Dogs blend the classic American corn dog with the Swedish tradition of a hot dog with sweet shrimp salad on top. This recipe is from my upcoming book Marcus Off Duty, available on October 21.

Kale is my staple food, and the versatile recipes are endless, so be creative! It is yummy, hearty, loaded with chlorophyll and other valuable nutrients, and is a fast way to curb hunger. Food is like currency to me; before I eat, I always ponder, “Is this valuable currency?” Well, kale is invaluable with tons of Vitamins K, A, and C, and it’s packed with alkalizing minerals for a balanced pH level. Eating kale is like having money in the bank!

Pesto potato salad

Pesto potato salad

Potato salads are a quintessential summer side but the mayonnaise-heavy mixtures are a thing of the past that leaves guests feeling indulgently guilty as opposed to satisfied. This classic spud is definitely due for an upgrade, which takes form in this delightfully colorful pesto potato salad with green beans.

Pine nuts and scallions

The fresh flavors of basil, green beans, scallions and potatoes will elicit compliments to last you these long, balmy nights.
