Great Idea: Father's Day Kabob and Dip Bar

Great Idea: Father's Day Kabob and Dip Bar

Elizabeth Leader Smith

Spicy Grilled Peach and Chicken Kabobs

When it comes to Father’s Day, my family tends to keep the celebration simple just like my husband likes it. We opt for a big meal at home rather than a fancy brunch or dinner at a restaurant. But don’t think that eating at home can’t be fun. This year, we’re setting up a kabob bar stocked with meats, fish, vegetable and fruits and more dips that you can shake a skewer at.

For a family full of different likes and dislikes, the beauty of the kabob lies in its versatility. Whatever meat, veggie or fruit suits your taste, it has a place on a skewer. Plus, older kids can help thread kabobs. And after grilling, everyone can dip to his or her heart’s content. Sticks and dips — it’s a winning combination!... Read More

Vegan Recipes: Summer Vegetables Take Center Stage

Alice K. Thompson

Grilled Summer Vegetables

It’s the time of year when irresistibly fresh, colorful vegetables naturally take up more room on the plate. I’m obsessed with summer produce, perusing recipes and thinking up new ways to serve it even when I should be doing something else. (Especially when I should be doing something else!)

With vegetables in their glory it’s particularly gratifying to turn to vegan dishes: Light, healthful and packed with summer’s best flavors and magnificent variety. Here are some of the recipes I find most appealing for both dedicated vegan eating or just for a change-up from the usual... Read More

Cooking with Apricots

Cooking with Apricots

Alana Sugar

Apricot Graham Snackers

Fresh apricots have a mild, sweet aroma and are fabulous grilled, sautéed, poached, baked, broiled or glazed. You can use them interchangeably in a variety of recipes that call for other stone fruit (fruit with flesh enclosing a stone, or pit) such as peaches, nectarines and plums. Although fresh apricots are available in late spring and early summer, canned and dried apricots are available year-round. Dried apricots are easily reconstituted, and their flavor is deeper, sweeter and more intense.

Here are some of my favorite ways to enjoy apricots:... Read More
