Make Pho in a Salad

Pho Salad

Noodle soups are probably my favorite category of foods, and amongst them, Pho reigns supreme. There are so many reasons why I love it, but perhaps the most compelling reason is that it’s warm and comforting on a cold day and yet it’s light and refreshing enough to conjure up an appetite, even on a hot summer day.

Win Over a Crowd with Cheesy Corn Dip


Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

Corn has been kicking in the past few weeks! I went to a new farmer’s market in South Pasadena and picked up a few ears and it was the most amazing corn I think I’ve ever had. It was fresh, sweet and crispy. I love raw corn— it’s SO good. I’ve been trying to find ways to incorporate it into everything.

Looking for a Comforting Meal? Try Ramen Carbonara

It’s hot outside and although I cook for a living, this is a season when I want to spend as little time over a hot stove as possible. That’s why I’ve been turning to dishes like this Tomato Avocado Chicken or this Sesame Snap Pea Chicken to limit my use of the stove. Carbonara is another quick and satisfying meal, but a traditional Spaghetti alla Carbonara still requires two pans to make.

Warm pasta in the summer is kinda tricky. On the one hand, pasta is great ALL THE TIME. But it was literally 100 degrees yesterday in Los Angeles and surprisingly muggy, so hot food hasn’t been exactly a priority for me. This pasta dish is a bit different because it is so flavorful and light.

I’ve said this before, but Bahn Mi is my favorite sandwich– ever. Made with an airy Vietnamese-style baguette stuffed with the vibrant colors, textures and flavors of Southeast Asia, it’s a brilliant melding of two famously good culinary cultures and is one of the few good things to come from French colonial rule of the country.

Picnic Ready Mozzarella Tomato Orzo Salad

I’m always on the lookout for pasta salads that I can take to picnics. A few weeks ago, I went to an outdoor movie screening of A League of Their Own (maybe the best movie ever!) and I threw something like this together on a whim.

Summer Side Salad: Red Cabbage Slaw

Red Cabbage Slaw

If you’ve been following along for awhile you know that I’m not a big fan of mayonnaise in coleslaw. For me, mayo gives coleslaw a cloying richness that’s a bit too much for the rich foods it’s usually served with, like buttermilk fried chicken or sloppy joes.
