One of my favorite kitchen exercises is to take a dish from one region of the world and reimagine it as something from somewhere else on this awesomely diverse planet we live on. The rice paper wrappers used for Vietnamese summer rolls are particularly well suited for this as they make for the perfect vessel to hold just about anything you might want to fill them with.

I feel so fancy when I make crepes. They’re not something I make every day or every weekend, for that matter, but whenever I do, I’m always like, “Why don’t I do this more often?!”

Soaked in eggs and milk and then fried in butter, French toast is a big no-no for those who follow a plant-based diet. But making a vegan version of this classic breakfast dish is both easy and delicious. The trick is to make a batter by blending together coconut milk and soft tofu.

I’ll admit something to you: I like my drinks a little girly. I want my cocktails to taste good and not too much like liquor, though on occasion, a scotch or bourbon on the rocks hits the spot. I’m not shy about adding fruit and sugar and I love herbs of all kinds all up in my drinks, too. Pimm’s Cup is definitely at the top of my favorite summer cocktails. It’s refreshing, effervescent and straight delicious.

Although food trucks around the country have been dispensing Korean-style tacos for some time now, the culinary combination may seem a bit odd to the uninitiated. If you set the geographical distances aside, though, the two cuisines are a natural fit. With wrapped grilled meats and bold flavor profiles loaded with garlic and chili peppers, there’s enough common ground to play well together, and yet, enough differences to make something exciting and new.

I’m always conflicted about hot soup during the summer time. Is this something we want to eat? I usually veer on the side of no. But a few days ago, it was gloomy with mild temperatures in LA and the tomatoes and corn at the market were screaming to be combined. I figured it was the perfect time to break out a soup recipe I’ve been wanting to try. I’m pretty excited about this one.

With the unrelenting summer heat, I’m always looking for ways to keep the house cool. Grilling things outdoors is one good way to avoid creating unnecessary heat indoors, but when you have to cook a sauce or glaze to go with it, it kind of defeats the purpose of using the grill.

Make Cherry Tomato Bulgar Purslane Salad

Tomato Bulgar Salad recipe

I love a good summer salad. But only if the ingredients and combinations are interesting. Have you ever had purslane? It’s technically categorized as a weed but oh what a delicious weed it is. This means that at farmer’s markets and Middle Eastern markets, you’ll find it for a mere 80 cents a bunch—it’s cheap! It’s a bit spicy and the texture is much thicker than you might be used to. It’s a flavorful weed that I love to add to salads.
