Shrimp Garam Masala

Family favorite! This exciting dish has it all: Bursting with flavor, nutritious, quick, and easy! You’ll want to add this to your weeknight go-to list. I’ve skipped the onions and peppers more than once, either because I ran out of them or of energy, and nobody complained. I like it better with them, but sometimes…

Grilled Balsamic Flank Steak

Juicy, tender steak, with a lovely sear and delicious flavor: This company-worthy dish is quick and easy, so you can spend more time with your guests and less time in the kitchen. It’s also perfect for a weeknight family dinner when you’re just too wiped out to want to spend much time cooking. You’ll get…

Blueberry Balsamic Chicken With Bulgur, Tomatoes, and Kale

I know, blueberries on chicken, right? Not an everyday occurrence! My Chief Taste Tester (a.k.a. husband) is exceptionally open-minded about new foods, but even he was skeptical at first.

Rosemary-Skewered Shrimp

I came across this recipe years ago (though I don’t recall where) when I was looking for something to use up a lot of rosemary from my garden. Some years, I don’t get much rosemary. It either gets sick or just doesn’t grow very big. Other years, though, there’s more than I can possibly use….

Pork Medallions With Chunky Spiced Pear Sauce

You know that old saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover?” I have to admit, the photo of this dish is…unimpressive. At best. The flavor is decidedly not unimpressive. It’s delicious! Add to that the fact that it’s quick and easy to prepare — about 30 minutes from “What’s for dinner?” to “Dinner’s ready!”…

Baked Salmon With Gingered Rhubarb

Tangy rhubarb, bright ginger, and mellow onions are the perfect accompaniment to one of my favorite kinds of fish. This excellent dish is an adaptation (with very little change) of a recipe I found at Taste of Home. The day I made it, I was using up some rhubarb I had left over from baking Rhubarb…

Tuna Salad

Comfort food, summer style! Okay, it’s not one of my healthier recipes, which is why I only make it once or twice a year. It’s not awful, my nutrition app gives it a C-, but let’s face it: mayo. Plenty of mayo. But it’s childhood memories plus make-ahead plus wicked easy plus easily doubled to…
