It’s that time of year again! Time of year when kids get on the school bus in the morning with their lunchboxes and pencil cases, and arrive home around three in afternoon starving for a healthy (but tasty!) snack.

These banana bread milkshakes are my favorite afternoon treat. They’re perfect for little tummies after school!

Avoid Hunger Pangs with Tofu Avocado Salad

Tofu Avocado Salad

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

Food for me isn’t just about nourishing my body; it’s about feeding my soul. That’s why I’ve never been a fan of eating lettuce as a meal. Don’t get me wrong; I have nothing against vegetables, it’s just that after I eat a salad I’m left feeling empty inside. It’s not a stomach rumbling kind of hungry; it’s a hunger pang that emanates from deep within my soul.

A couple weeks ago, I was gifted a huge paper bag filled with sweet, ripe yellow peaches straight from my friend’s tree. Peaches are my favorite fruit and, growing up in the South, peach cobbler is one of my favorite desserts. For this though, I wanted to put a spin on traditional cobbler and make little shortcakes instead! With some freshly whipped cream and a sprig of mint, these peach shortcakes are the perfect ending to any late summer meal.

Use Your Odds and Ends for Vegetable Curry

Every now and then I force myself to explore to the bottom of my vegetable drawer to unearth ancient produce and recover the dregs from past trips to the farmers market. While some people may dread looking into the dark reaches of their fridge, I actually enjoy the challenge of coming up with delicious ways to use up every last veggie.

If you cook with recipes, I can understand your reticence to delve into the far reaches of your fridge. Aside from the occasional bag of unidentifiable mush, chances are, you’re not going to find a recipe that happens to include all the expiring vegetables you have on hand.

Explore Variations on Asparagus Soup for New Flavors

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

I often get asked why my website is called No Recipes when in fact there’s nothing but recipes on it. It’s not that I have anything against recipes; it’s just that I don’t think anyone should feel bound by them.

Once you understand the underlying mechanics of why you add particular ingredients and prepare them in a certain manner, recipes become templates that you can customize to suit your tastes rather than a strict set of instructions.

Matsuri

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

While there are matsuri (festivals) all year long in Japan, summer is when they’re at their peak. Like a local fair, the dates vary from place to place with many festivals celebrated at the city or even neighborhood level.

Bon Odori
Themes range from celebrating the harvest to remembering the dead. Bon Odori is a matsuri that’s typically held during Obon (known as the ghost festival in other parts of Asia) where locals come out dressed in yukata (a light cotton kimono) and dance to the beat of a taiko drum.
