Tortellini Salad

What's more fun than regular pasta salad? Tortellini pasta salad! The tortellini are chewy and cheesy, not to mention adorable, and they make this summer salad such a blast to eat. Their nooks and crannies catch the zingy Italian dressing, and their pillowy texture contrasts beautifully with the juicy cherry tomatoes and creamy white beans. If you're looking for a fresh dish to pass at a cookout this weekend (or a yummy idea for lunch next week), this tortellini salad recipe would be perfect. Oh, and if you're vegan or dairy-free, you can still make this recipe! We've tried making […]

Three Bean Salad

Like macaroni salad and potato salad, three bean salad takes me right back to my childhood. It was something I ate at potlucks, picnics, and even the occasional school lunch. I remember liking the sweet and tangy dressing, but the mushy canned green beans? Not so much. So, to kick off picnic salad season this year, I've got a new three bean salad recipe to share with you. In many ways, it's just like the one I ate as a kid. It features dark red kidney beans and hearty garbanzos, and it's tossed in a punchy (though considerably less sweet) […]

33 Best BBQ Sides

BBQ sides have always been my favorite part of a summer cookout. On the menu of the average backyard BBQ, they're the dishes that highlight what, in my opinion, are the best flavors of the season. Juicy sweet corn. Bursty cherry tomatoes. Berries, watermelon, and other fresh fruit. In short, I love BBQ side dishes because they celebrate peak-season produce. With Memorial Day coming up next weekend, I thought it would be the perfect time to share some of my favorites. They range from classic creamy potato salad to summery slaws to herb-flecked pasta salads and smoky grilled watermelon. But […]

Blueberry Pancakes

Tell me, is there anything better than starting your day with a stack of homemade blueberry pancakes? After eating them almost every morning this week (I made a big batch last weekend and froze the extras!!), I'd have to say no. These blueberry pancakes are soft, fluffy, and bursting with juicy berries. They're easy to make with pantry ingredients, and, if you don't dwell too much on the big pour of syrup you're putting on top, they're fairly good for you, too. I hope you love them as much as we do! Blueberry Pancake Recipe Ingredients Here's what you'll need […]

Blueberry Compote

I have a super simple recipe for you today: a 5-ingredient, 20-minute blueberry compote. It's one of my favorite recipes to make when I have a surplus of fresh berries (or a big bag of frozen berries) on hand. It tastes so good that you could eat it with a spoon, but it's really meant to be used as a topping. Drizzle it over pancakes, oatmeal, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a delicious pop of bright berry flavor. Blueberry Compote Recipe Ingredients Here's what you'll need to make this easy blueberry compote recipe: Blueberries, of course! Fresh […]

How to Cook Bok Choy

Right after radishes and asparagus, bok choy is one of the first vegetables to appear at our local farmers markets in the spring. I love this Asian leafy green. If you haven't worked with it before, it has a delicate flavor with hints of mustardy spice, and you can eat every part of it – the crisp, juicy stalks as well as the lush, dark green leaves. It lends itself well to all sorts of recipes. Try tossing it into a stir fry or soup. Steam it and add it to a grain bowl. Or enjoy it raw in a […]

Instant Pot Quinoa

I'm a convert: this Instant Pot quinoa recipe is my new favorite method for cooking quinoa. It's quick, it's reliable, and – most importantly – it's hands-off. I love that I can add the quinoa to the Instant Pot, get it cooking, and move on to something else. Whether I check on it in 20 minutes or in an hour, I'll end up with a pot of fluffy, perfectly cooked grains. Instant Pot Quinoa Recipe Ingredients To be clear, if you love cooking quinoa on the stove, there's no reason you shouldn't keep doing it. My stovetop quinoa recipe and […]

Spring Quinoa with Asparagus, Peas & Pickled Onion

This post is in partnership with Lundberg Family Farms. When I want to make a simple, yet satisfying, dinner or lunch, quinoa is one of the first ingredients I turn to. I always have a bag of Lundberg's organic quinoa on hand – it cooks quickly, it's rich in nutrients like fiber and protein, and it's super versatile, too. At this point, I've used it in smoky veggie burgers, hearty stews, and salads galore. All that, and I'm still finding new ways to use it! This spring quinoa dish was one of my more recent experiments, and we liked it so […]

Watercress Salad

If you need a last-minute side dish for Mother's Day, I think this watercress salad would be perfect. It's exactly the kind of dish I like to serve at a special occasion meal. Light and refreshing, it provides a welcome contrast to heartier fare like cinnamon rolls (at brunch) or a saucy, cheesy lasagna (at dinner). And while it's simple to make, it's a bit more unexpected than a regular green salad. The watercress gives it a peppery bite, which I tame with sweet, juicy orange segments and a bright champagne vinaigrette. Mozzarella and avocado add creamy richness, and toasted […]

Champagne Vinaigrette

Pop the champagne (vinaigrette)! This bright, citrusy salad dressing has become one of my favorites lately, and I think you need it in your back pocket too. Let me tell you why I love it. Compared to its more assertive cousins (say, balsamic or white wine vinegar), champagne vinegar has a quieter, more delicate flavor. As a result, this champagne vinaigrette is ideal for drizzling over the tender lettuces, herbs, and other greens that are in season at this time of year. It gives them pep and zing, but it doesn't overwhelm their natural sweet, earthy, and herbaceous flavors. So, […]
