BBQ BLT Pizza

July has certainly cranked up the heat, which makes it less than appealing to create oven-like temperatures in my kitchen for our weekly dinner tradition, pizza Friday. If you’ve ever made pizza at home, you know that the oven has to be set well into the upper 400°’s to achieve a crispy crust. I don’t mind this high temperature warming up our kitchen in the middle of winter, but not so much during the hottest days of summer. So, to keep the heat outdoors, we use our BBQ grill to cook pizza.  Read More »

Are time consuming summer activities making it hard to get a home-cooked meal on the table? No need to worry, Ultragrain Penne with Fresh Tomatoes, Mozzarella and Pepperoni can be put together in a snap, tastes delicious, and is a great way to get a serving of healthy whole grains onto your plate. My kids refer to this dish as Pizza Pasta (from all of the pizza-like ingredients) and I’m beginning to think that they’re purposely keeping us late at the pool just so we can have it for dinner again. Read More »

Breakfast for dinner is always a popular choice with my family, but sometimes I’m hungry for a meal that’s more substantial and nutritious than the usual pancakes or waffles we fix.

Spring Woods Pasta

I was inspired to make this dish when I was walking through woods a few weeks ago, in early spring. When I got back to my kitchen, first I took off my muddy shoes, and then I got to work figuring out how to capture the smell of things growing, or getting ready to-- that amazing combo of earthy and fresh, like a garden that’s just been planted. Earthy flavors like sausage, mushrooms, and garlic balance with bright new spring tastes like asparagus, peas, fresh herbs and lemon zest.  Read More »
