Stay Cool with Strawberries and Cream Popsicles

Strawberries and Cream Popsicles recipe

Summer has officially hit Los Angeles. This heat totally has the ability to humble me, especially considering I live in an apartment without air-conditioning. Phew! Climbing temperatures mean that popsicles are an absolute must. My favorite thing to do is pick up fruit from the farmer’s market, puree it and pour it in popsicle molds. I consider July to be a fantastic month for strawberries. They’re tart, perfectly sweet and they’re usually cheap, cheap, cheap.

Put a New Spin on Seafood with Hamachi Poke

Hamachi Poke Recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

I’ve mentioned before that Tuna Poke (pronounced poh-keh) is one of my all-time favorite foods. With a bowl of hot rice, it’s simply without parallel from an effort to taste ratio. That’s why as summer wears on, and cooking in a hot kitchen becomes increasingly tedious, Poke becomes a regular part of the rotation.

Try Garlic Edamame for an Irresistible Snack

Garlic Edamame Recipe

We all know and love garlic fries. Whether you’re at the ballpark or a brewpub they’re a perennial favorite that go together like Cinderella and her glass slipper. Edamame is the closest equivalent to fries in Japan, and yet most people there just serve them with salt.

Roasted Fig and Ricotta Crostini: Simple Summer Appetizer

Roasted Fig and Ricotta Crostini recipe

My next door neighbor has an envy-worthy fig tree. The leaves are are huge and the brightest hue of green. I often wish I knew how to make dolmas because then I’d put them to good use. Instead, he allows me to pick as many figs off the tree as my heart desires. His tree yields so much fruit that he has no idea what to do with it all. I always tell him not to worry because I have big plans for the figs.

Experience the Aroma and Flavor of Passion Fruit Syrup

Passion Fruit Syrup Recipe

True to its name, passion fruit has a potent fragrance that’s sweet and seductive. With a tart orange pulp that surrounds black crunchy seeds, they don’t have much to eat when you crack one open. That’s why passion fruit is more about the fragrance and flavor than as a fruit you’d eat for sustenance. Unless you happen to live in a tropical climate where it’s grown, this low yield makes passion fruit prohibitively expensive.

Relax with Grilled Pineapple Margaritas

Call me completely obsessed because all I want to do right now is grill all sorts of food, including fruit. A few weeks ago I grilled a few slices of pineapple for burgers and was completely blown away by how delicious of an addition they were.

With picnic and potluck season in full swing, I’m always looking for new ways to prepare old favorites. Buffalo Wings are a perennial hit because they’re compact and tasty, but deep frying can be a hassle, and it’s not exactly a make-ahead dish.

German Potato Salad: A Flavorful Side Dish

German Potato Salad recipe

This recipe is for the people who are mayonnaise-averse. You know, the people’s whose faces wince at the sight of a slater of mayo on their sandwich. I’m not this person. Not one bit. I personally love mayonnaise. I like it on sandwiches, as a dip with French fries, artichokes, clams…and a lobster roll? The lobster must be tossed in a bit of mayonnaise. I’ve had lobster rolls where the lobster is coated in butter and they’re just not the same. Basically, you name it, I probably like mayo on it. But, that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy a delicious, warm German Potato Salad that is one-hundred percent mayonnaise-less.
