  • Be a hit at this year’s cookout

    The Fourth of July is almost here and you’ve likely been invited to someone’s house for a cookout.

    You’re probably thinking of something to bring, but you don’t want to be that person with the tray of sliced watermelon, or the sheet cake decorated with blueberries and strawberries in a flag pattern. You want to do something different, be creative, wow them.

  • Soup makes a great summertime meal

    When we think of soup we think of cold winter nights. A big pot of chili simmering for hours on the stove or maybe gallons of chicken noodle to “cure what ails ya.”

    For hundreds of years, people around the world eat certain soups in the summer to cool down and replenish nutrients zapped away by the summer heat.

    Some soups are cold like gazpacho and melon soup, others are served warm or room temperature like summer minestrone.

  • You, too, can become ‘King of the Grill’

    My dad was not always “king of the grill.” My brother and I endured many years of waiting patiently for the coals to turn gray, only to receive the charred remains of a once perfect handmade hamburger. We referred to these masterpieces as “hockey pucks.“ Hot dogs, bratwurst, steaks, all suffered the same fate.

    Apparently several years, and moving to Florida have improved his grill skills. No longer do I hear “Taps” being played in the background when my Dad says dinner is ready.

  • Food is big part of family life

    Growing up in New Jersey and being from a very large, Italian-Irish family gave me my love for cooking and entertaining.

    My family doesn’t just gather and eat — they embrace any opportunity to celebrate life with food, family and friends.

  • ‘Superfood’ rhubarb is now in season

    I prefer a great rhubarb mixed with strawberries in a flaky crust for that undeniable sweet, tart happiness that comes with long summer days.

    Rhubarbs true season is April through June, but you can find it in early spring and thru the summer months.

    When buying rhubarb always look for deep red stalks and leaves that are not wilted. You won’t ever use the leaves because they’re poisonous, but they’re a good indicator of freshness.
