Mondays can be a bit tiring at the office - and on the home front. So for most of us, preparing an involved dinner is just not appealing. But, the good news is summertime calls for fresh, healthy, and quick recipes anyways! There's simply no need to stand over the kitchen counter chopping 20+ vegetables for an Autumn stew or dredging and battering chicken breasts for a proper Chicken Parmesan...at least not for another few months.
Because let's face it, in 80-degree weather, we're less interested in heavily-sauced, hot dinners. A cool and crisp combo is far more enticing.
This Grilled Shrimp with Peach Salsa recipe screams summer. Add to it some Jasmine rice with a touch of lime juice and zest along with some grilled zucchini and you have a perfect weeknight supper made in less than 30 minutes.

From sunny days at the beach to picnics at the park to backyard barbecues with our family and friends, we're finding lots of reasons to eat well this season. Summer is also a time to relax a little more - and sometimes, that means finding shortcuts in the kitchen so that we can spend more time with those who matter most. So what's the best cooking shortcut we can suggest?Taking full advantage of barbecue leftovers.
If you already enjoy grilling on the weekends, then why not grill a little extra so that you can eat well all week long? Here are some of our favorite barbecue leftover recipe ideas...
Barbecue Quesadillas: Simply slice up leftover steak, brisket, or chicken and evenly layer on one half of a large tortilla along with shredded Monterey Jack, green onions, and diced tomatoes.

Grilling Tri-Tip with Big Time marinade, preheat your grill on high. Place the tri-tip over the high heat to sear the meat and create nice grill marks; leave on 2 to 3 minutes per side. Turn the heat down to low and cook for approximately 20 minutes per pound, turning the meat about every 7 to 8 minutes. Test if the meat is done by inserting a meat thermometer in to the thickest part of the meat. The tri-tip should read 120°F for a rare roast, 130°F for medium-rare and 140°F for medium. Take the tri-tip off the grill when it has reached your… Read More
Your Summer Dessert Secret Weapon: Peaches on the Grill
It’s not summer if you’re not firing up the grill, and lucky for you there’s some seriously great meat on special to kick off the party. And to finish things off sweetly, we have a secret tip for something special: grilled peaches. When you grill peaches (or other stone fruits), you perform a kind of magic. The heat of the grill makes the natural sugars caramelize, creating a new sweet and smoky flavor that will make you an instant fan. And you don’t have to serve the peaches warm to get the full flavor impact. Grill them up in advance, pop them in the fridge, and serve when you’re ready. And though you can use the grilled peaches in an endless variety of ways, some of our favorites are the simplest: Just top with whipped cream, Mascarpone cheese, cinnamon, chopped nuts, honey, or all of the above!

Poached eggs are delicious and a staple on most brunch menus, but not as common at home because they appear to be hard to cook. This year is the year you learn how to perfectly poach an egg every time.
Use the freshest eggs you can find. Fresh eggs have tighter whites and yolks which will help them keep their shape in the water.
Use a fine mesh strainer instead of a slotted spoon. The strainer will remove any of the stringy egg whites that separate.
Keep the eggs moving around in the water so that they cook evenly.
Vinegar isn't necessary if you use fresh eggs. It helps, but can also affect the taste of your meal.
Bring a few inches of water in your saucepan to a slow simmer, just where you can start to see bubbles appearing.
As water is heating up, crack an egg into a bowl and transfer it to your strainer.
Swirl the egg in your strainer until the excess egg whites come off and then lower it down to the simmering water.
Gently shake the… Read More
