Summer Chicken Kebabs with Herb Sauce {Recipe}

Flavorful herbs are at their prime during the summer. Make them the star of the show with this herb sauce drizzled over chicken kebabs.    I was compensated for writing the original article and developing the recipe found in the July 2015 issue of Today’s Dietitian. I was not compensated for sharing the column or magazine with readers on my blog. All opinions are my own.   One of my favorite things about summer is the plethora of fresh fruit and vegetables. Everyone talks about zucchini, corn,… read more »

Fresh Salmon Ceviche with Cucumbers and Radishes {Recipe}

Tender salmon is paired with crunchy cucumbers and radishes in a zesty citrus marinade to make a ceviche that is easy to prepare and looks gourmet!

But since I didn’t grow up eating it, chick… read more »

Sweet and sour, tart and spicy, this fresh cherry chutney is the perfect condiment to serve at your summer barbecue! Cherries are in season and boy does that make me happy! I love sitting on my back patio on warm summer nights, post-BBQ, munching on cherries. I love watching my three year old girls nibble on cherries only to have a clown face when they’re done. And, believe it or not, I love using my cherry pitter (affiliate link) to pop the pits out of those sweet, slightly sour and tart cherrie… read more »

Roasted Broccoli Radish Salad with Lemon Mint Vinaigrette {Recipe}

Whip up this Broccoli Radish Salad with Lemon Mint Vinaigrette for a quick and easy side dish for your next barbecue or any weeknight meal.  I have a really quick and easy side dish for you today. I don’t quite remember what led to me making this recipe, but broccoli salads seem to be popular lately – at least I’ve seen a lot of them on Instagram and Pinterest. Many use raw broccoli, which isn’t really my thing. If anything I would need to at least blanch the broccoli to make it a… read more »
