Sweet Georgia Peach Jam (in Collaboration with Fresh Farms and Mauviel Cookware)

No fruit tastes as summery as ripe peaches, and late-season Georgia sweet peaches from Fresh Farms are the most luscious of all. The aroma of the ripening fruit is as intense and irresistible as the soft, sweet and tangy flavor. They’re also a treat for the eyes with their deep orange-yellow hue and vibrant patches of […]

Mark Bittman’s New Orleans Shrimp Boil (in Collaboration with Random House and Peapod)

There’s something about a seafood boil that brings people together. The irresistible sight of a steamy pile of jumbo tender shrimp, perfectly cooked potatoes, and corn steamed in fragrant cajun spices with a splash of hot sauce is hard to pass up. When I was asked to feature a recipe from Mark Bittman’s new cookbook […]

Blackened Barramundi Fish Tacos with a Mango-Jalapeño Salsa and Pickled Red Cabbage (in Collaboration with Australis Barramundi)

I love fish, all kinds of fish and whether it’s baked, seared, grilled or fried, I’ll happily eat it. When I try out a new restaurant, I usually start with the seafood section of the menu and work my way back to traditional fare. Jason, on the other hand, isn’t such a devoted seafood fan, […]

Charred Vegetable Soup (in collaboration with Imperfect Produce)

My version is updated by briefly broiling the vegetables to char […]

Salade Niçoise (in collaboration with Imperfect Produce)

Although the warm sunny days of summer are behind us, delicious summery salads can continue late into the fall. Jam-packed with layered flavors and textures, my twist on the classic Salade niçoise trades cannellini beans for eggs and skips artichokes, anchovies, and olives for a lighter texture, letting summery heirloom tomatoes, string beans, radicchio, lettuce, […]

Vegetable Shish Kababs with a Sriracha Honey-Sesame Glaze (in collaboration with Imperfect Produce)

When it comes to buying produce, most shoppers pick through dozens of pieces, turning, squeezing and unfortunately bruising many of them until they find the most perfect looking, blemish-free pieces leaving mounds of picked-through, roughly handled and damaged produce that ultimately goes to waste. I’m guilty of this myself, but this behavior pressures grocery managers […]

Soupe au Pistou (Provençal Vegetable Soup)

Hard to believe last Tuesday was the first day of Spring, with some parts of the country still getting pounded by record snowstorms. While I’m anxious for the arrival of warm spring days, I fully intend to savor the last of the cold weather with the help of a few more pots of soup. With […]
