Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

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.

I recently made some beef and pork filled cabbage rolls. They were meaty and delicious, but my favorite part of the rolls was both the flavor and texture of the farro. This got me wondering about what a meatless roll stuffed with only farro would be like.

Watch the World Cup with Brazilian Brigadeiro

Brigadeiro recipe

My dream dinner would be a big plate of the Brazilian stew, Feijoada. It’s a dish made up of braised beans, pork and vegetables. It’s often times served with rice, sausage and a salad made up of delicious pickled things. I’ve been hoping to find someone to show me how to make it and luckily I did a few months back. Unfortunately, it’s not easy and many of the ingredients required to really achieve a good, authentic Feijoada aren’t all that easy to find. In lieu of that recipe, which I hope to share with you all at some point, are these delicious Brazilian truffles known as Brigadeiro.

Make Spring Onions and Gruyere Pizza from Scratch

Spring Onion and Gruyere Pizza recipe

Spring onions (the uncured bulbs of mature onions, not scallions) are a marvelous seasonal treat that show up in markets in late spring and early summer. Milder and sweeter than cured yellow onions, they have higher moisture content which makes them tender as well. Because of their more delicate flavor they’re great in simple preparations such as in salads or just roasted.

Refresh Yourself with Watermelon Agua Fresca

Watermelon Agua Fresca recipe

This drink recipe may be a teeny bit premature. I usually associate watermelon with the dog days of summer; not the days that teeter between spring and summer. I blame the sweet smell of watermelon!

Embrace the Herb: Make Coriander Chicken

Coriander Chicken recipe

Coriander is one of those controversial herbs that people either love or hate. The most frequent complaint I hear is from people who say it tastes like soap. The irony is that it’s often the people who hated it the most that end up loving it the most over time, myself included. It’s an acquired taste, if ever there was one.

It’s Grilling Season! Make a Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Grilled Veggie Sandwich recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

Now that we’ve entered the season where we grill everything, it’s time to share one of my favorite healthy dinners: Grilled Veggie Sandwiches. I’m a big fan grilling vegetables and all vegetables; I think I like it even more than roasting vegetables, which I love a million times more than boiled vegetables. I remember going to friends’ houses growing up and having to force down overcooked boiled vegetables to “be nice.” It wasn’t my favorite moments. I was lucky in that my mom was really into steaming vegetables and during the summer months, she grilled them.
