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.

While sweet breakfasts can be a nice treat from time to time, savory breakfasts tend to be my staple morning meal. Dishes like Eggs Benedict are one of my favorites, with an exquisite mélange of tastes, textures and colors. Actually, Eggs Benedict is probably my favorite western breakfast of all time (with Huevos Rancheros coming in a close second).

Summertime is for relaxing. It’s for wearing sunglasses, sitting on porches and sipping sweet tea. There are times when I’m convinced that I have a grandma living inside of me because rather than going to da club or any other stuff like that, I’d rather be home baking with my corgi by my side.

Make Mongolian Beef Pasta for an Easy Meal

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

While Mongolian beef may not be an authentic Chinese dish (or even a Mongolian dish), its popularity in Chinese-American restaurants is undeniable, and it was one of my favorite dishes from the Chinese take-out place in the rural town where I grew up. Although it’s sometimes served on a bed of fried glass noodles, Mongolian beef is hardly a meal on its own, and this got me wondering … what if I made a saucy Mongolian beef and tossed it with spaghetti?

Prepare Peach Toasts for a Simple Summer Appetizer

Peach Toasts recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

A few years ago, my boyfriend mixed feta cheese with a bit of milk in a food processor and the texture that it made was incredible. It was pourable, fluffy and tasted like heaven. I extended that very, very simple idea and applied it to goat cheese. The added cream cheese gives a bit more tartness to it, and the heavy cream really makes it fluffy and silky. This is the most basic of basic ideas, and really it isn’t that much of a recipe at all.
