 There are so many things to love about this recipe. It is hard to know where I should even start. The flavors are bold while still staying very simple, the texture is both crispy and creamy, and the acid from the vingrette cuts through the richness for another layer of flavor. The simplicity of the recipe is another huge advantage. It is perfect for a weeknight. The flank steak takes about 15 minutes to cook and while that is happening you can throw togeth...

With a 20 month old and a growing business I love easy dinner ideas as much as the next person. I recently put this one together for a client. Nothing groundbreaking here, but delicious and great for any time of the year. You could do these in the oven or on the grill since they are wrapped in foil. Feel free to play with the ingredients too. These would be great with some fresh rosemary and balsamic vinegar topped with a little goat cheese. Yum, I have to...

London broil is not a tender cut of steak, but it is affordable and if you marinate it and cook it right, it can be delicious. This cut of beef is perfect for the grill or broiler (hence the name) and when it is on sale its
fairly inexpensive to feed a family of four. While you will see London broil labeled as such in the store, it actually isn't a specific cut of meat, it is a way of cooking meat. The cut is generally top round steak. So if you don't...

I love a good stuffed flank steak. The stuffing possibilities are endless and it is a great alternative to flank steak with a sauce over top (which is generally the other way I enjoy flank steak.) If you want a flavor packed stuffed flank steak recipe check out my Marinated Stuffed Flank Steak , where I stuffed the steak spinach, red peppers and provolone. 

Using the flank steak to create pinwheels is even easier and quicker than stuffing it. I loved al...

There are so many wonderful things about summer foods. First, we get to enjoy so many fresh ingredients with all of the fruits and veggies that go straight from the farm to our homes. Or better yet, straight from the garden. Farmers markets are filled with delicious food that you just can't get the rest of the year. Those strong, fresh flavors mean that cooking can be simple. Just let the ingredients do the talking.

Second, food helps to define a lot of the...

 This recipe came about when I had a client request a grilled peach salad and with summer peaches around the corner, I thought this was a great time to share it. My client had previously had a grilled peach salad that she loved, but could not tell me what was in it. So I started searching through the internet to see what other people were throwing in their grilled peach salads. I came up with this delightful combo and topped it off with my Bacon Balsamic Vi...

Dinner at my house is often a quick look to see what's in the fridge and then figuring out what might go well together. This time of year also includes a quick look in the garden, to see what I can pick. For the recipe below I pulled a red pepper and arugula. Summer cooking can be wonderful. You just need a protein you can throw on the grill and something fresh to put on top. Some of the other easy toppings I like to make are chimichurri with fresh herbs fr...

As you may or may not know, I have another blog that I started a while back called Cooking With Coupons. It is a budget recipe blog where I create recipes and meals based on the food items that were on sale each week and coupons that you could find in the paper. I still get a chance every now and again to post on the site, but not as often as I like. So I thought I would bring some of my favorite summer recipes from that site over here for you to take a loo...
