I recently visited Washington, D.C., and hosted a cooking demo at the small, up-and-coming H Street market to promote our new EatingWell in Season book. The most popular dishes? The amazing tomato recipes we made with farm-fresh tomatoes from the table in the picture below.
We made recipes that were easy enough to prepare right at the market with nothing more than a knife and cutting board. I worked with kids from Through the Kitchen Door, a nonprofit group that teaches inner-city kids and recent immigrants how to cook healthy meals. Here they are dicing tomatoes for Raw Tomato Sauce. We...read full post »
I’m a huge fan of tea. Hot or cold, I just love it. I drink it all day long in the winter and I always have a big pitcher of iced tea in my fridge in the summer. Luckily tea is a healthy addiction. (Find out how tea can help your health and get the secret to maximizing tea’s health benefits.)
I must have inherited my love of iced tea from my dad. Whenever I’m on the back patio at his house in the summer there are always at least two big glass containers filled with his special sun tea blend with mint and cloves.
Like lemonade and other refreshing summer drink recipes, making your own iced tea is easy. Pick your favorite types of tea and get started with...read full post »
We’ve been having an ongoing debate here in the EatingWell Test Kitchen about which berry is the best. When I initially brought up this question I thought the correct answer would be totally obvious to everyone. But of the six of us involved in that initial debate, only I seemed to be clued in to the fact that the only choice that’s truly deserving of that number one ranking is raspberries. (Four people picked strawberries and one picked blueberries as their first choice.)
So in the spirit of our summer fruit debate I thought I’d share a couple of my favorite EatingWell raspberry dessert recipes, including decadent Frozen Raspberry Pie, with those of you who love...read full post »
In July and August, I never seem to have enough time in the evenings after work to do everything I want to do—swim, bike, pick berries and cherries, garden and go out on my boat. But around 8 p.m. the mosquitoes finally get me inside to make dinner and at that point I’m HUNGRY. So dinner recipes that are ready in 20 minutes or less are my go-to.
Since I try to make dinners using the vegetables I pick in my backyard—tomatoes, zucchini, dark leafy greens, lettuce and lots of fresh herbs—I tend to make a lot of Italian-inspired recipes. Here are a few of my favorite speedy summer recipes that can be prepped in 20 minutes.

The other day we needed cabbage for a photo shoot here at EatingWell. We bought a few heads at the grocery store and I picked some from my mom’s garden. (Here’s me with a head of Napa cabbage.)
The difference between the store-bought cabbage and the garden heads was striking. Here’s a shot of two heads of Savoy:
Not hard to tell which one was from the garden, right? Of course, the big beautiful one. That garden cabbage was so gorgeous and massive that when my co-workers saw it sitting in the Test Kitchen, they rushed in to check it out. The excitement got me thinking about my favorite cabbage recipes. I was so inspired that I went home with a...read full post »
