Seafood Paella on the Grill

By Sally Vargas Are you ready for a party? Mix up a pitcher of sangria and call your friends and neighbors!
A festive occasion calls for a big statement, and this paella is just that: a colorful rice dish bursting with clams, mussels and shrimp along with smoky chorizo and saffron for tons of flavor. You don’t need much else to serve alongside it, but you could make a green salad if you feel inspired.
Set the whole pan of paella on your picnic table, and bring out some crusty bread and wine glasses. Summer is just too short not to celebrate it with friends.

Light My Fire – Cooking With Certainly Wood

By Caroline Field We were delighted when Certainly Wood contacted us, challenging us to get cooking with wood. We couldn’t resist and waited with excitement until the package arrived. The package arrived containing, kiln dried wood, kindling, fire starters, BBQ tools, an apron and a booklet on how to cook with wood – Fabulous! We’ve learned so much since being in Devon about cooking on different outdoor equipment, using different fuels, but there is something almost romantic about cooking with wood, back to nature, outdoor survival, the call of the wild and boy did it bring back memories of Guide Camp, boiling water …read more

Airline Chicken Breast – Come Pan-Fry the Friendly Skies

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) Welcome to another episode of food you only see in restaurants, starring the always eye-catching “airline chicken” breast. Legend has it that the name comes from the fact this cut of chicken is shaped like an airplane wing, but that’s not actually the reason. This beautiful breast is known as airline chicken because it was such a popular menu item back in the day, when airlines still gave their guests real food. Above and beyond the wing-like shape, this worked so well is because food for air travel needs to be cooked way ahead of time, which means it can …read more

Pistachio Peach Salad with Ricotta Salata

By Erin Alderson There are two things I love about eating out at a restaurant. I want the meal to be something I can’t easily make at home and I want meals that spark an idea. This pistachio peach salad was inspired by a meal I had at a recent dinner in Santa Cruz. My friend Liz puts on magical dinners around food history (called the the Curated Feast) and was kind enough to invite me to her recent dinner about the Silk Road.
The chef prepared a peach barley dish that hit all the right notes. And so, I made mental notes and …read more

What’s in Season in August?

By Elise Bauer August Seasonal Produce Guide
Hello August and welcome to month 8 of our Monthly Seasonal Produce Guides!
It’s almost unfair to offer a produce guide for August; it seems like everything’s in season right now, right?
This month’s guide is similar to July’s. As in July, you’ll find summer squash, tomatoes, corn, cucumbers, melons and stone fruit. But by August, blueberries aren’t as plentiful—blackberries have taken their place—and tomatoes really come into their own.
By now, if you garden, basil has likely taken over your beds, so it a good time to start making pesto. Cucumbers also tend to grow with wild abandon. Bread …read more

Meal Plan for August Week 1

By Katie Workman Please welcome Katie Workman for this month’s meal plans! Katie is a mother of two hungry boys and a meal planning wizard, so much so that it led to the creation of her blog The Mom 100 and a cookbook by the same name.
The arrival of August elicits mixed emotions in me. On the one hand, it is the beginning of the last month of summer — the moment where we all start greeting each other with phrases like, “Where did the summer go?” (Please don’t say that to me just yet.)
