The 4th of July is the biggest BBQ day of the year! I always look forward to chowing down on some finger-lickin'-good ribs, sporting red, white, and blue, and catching up with family and friends. This year, why not upgrade your spread and serve a few things that will impress as much as the firework display? For this 4th of July BBQ, it's "Rosé ALL Day," and in this post, I have a recipe for a sparkling rosé punch with strawberry and lime that your guests will love, and a zucchini and onion gratin that will put your other boring side dishes to shame. These simple recipes will become your new summertime favorites.
If you love sushi and Mexican food, you're in for a treat today! Tuna Tartare Tacos are an instant hit with nearly every crowd. I used to think that these tasty treats could be enjoyed only at fancy cocktail parties. But then I had the pleasure of meeting Chef Josh Capon, owner of my favorite NYC seafood spot, Lure Fish Bar, and he totally changed my mind. Chef Capon shared his delicious recipe for these yummy tacos that you can easily replicate in your kitchen.
Since I have not been to the gym in a while (I hate to admit it), I'm trying to find ways to maintain my weight through diet. So I decided to jump on the bandwagon and prepared this Whole30 recipe to see what the hype was all about. If you are not familiar, Whole30 is a diet based on…
Another health craze has hit the food sphere, and this one you will want to pay attention to for sure. Chia seeds are trending and have been creeping into everything from health drinks to crackers, but what the heck are they and why do you need to eat them?
As much as I love fancy cocktails, if I'm being honest then I have to say, making them is the worst. There's too much measuring and too many special ingredients that I would never buy, I happily leave that skill to the mixologist at my favorite bar. So, when I am at home entertaining with friends, I like to keep it simple and easy. That is why I love this cocktail recipe, it's uncomplicated, yet still elegant and delicious. My Sparkling Rosé punch is the perfect drink to enjoy all summer long.
Sometimes you come across a recipe that you just know will blow you away, this is it! I often pursue through the major publications to seek out new dishes to try. I read some and think, why would anyone make this, but, when I saw this recipe on Food&Wine.com, my mouth instantly began to water and so I started my shopping list. Fresh salmon is such a treat to have in the summer and I am constantly looking for new ways to enjoy this delicious fish. This simple recipe combines pickled ginger with salmon and a balsamic reduction. I served my ginger roasted salmon with a grilled corn and watercress salad, making this meal the ultimate summer delight.
Grilling during the summer is one of my favorite things to do. It is also the perfect time to start eating lighter and healthier, that is why I love this recipe! Grilled Zucchini and Prosciutto Skewers with Citrus Mint Dressing is an elegant and easy to make dish, plus it's the perfect appetizer for your next summer soiree.

All opinions are mine alone. #AquafinaSparkling #CollectiveBiasMy new life in California is so different than my routine in New York. Since my recent move to LA LA Land, I have enjoyed taking advantage of the warm weather, radiant sunshine, sandy beaches, and the unfortunate traffic. Driving from place to place, instead of walking has seriously cut into my once active lifestyle. As a result, my step counter has been pinging me non-stop to exercise more. So I had to do something about it.
One of the first things I learned from my husband is that the best salmon comes from Alaska. I've listened to numerous stories about of his days as a commercial salmon fisherman and dipnetting experiences back in Anchorage. Getting fresh Alaskan Salmon in the "lower 48" does come at a cost, but it is totally worth it. I found this beautiful piece of fish at Whole Foods to make pan seared Alaskan salmon with fresh dill, lemon, and capers.
I never get bored of finding new ways to prepare chicken, especially when the recipe leaves me licking my fingers when I am done. Every time I make this dish, it gets rave reviews. I'm pretty confident that my simple and delicious Marinated Brown Sugar and Soy Roasted Drumsticks Recipe will instantly become one of your dinner favorites.
