Grilled Double Cheese Cheeseburgers [Sponsored Post]

By Irvin This double cheese cheeseburger, made with Safeway’s O Organics® ground beef and cheese is the definition of summertime grilling favorites! (Jump directly to the recipe.)

This post was sponsored by Safeway. I was compensated for this post and for developing the recipe. However all opinions below are completely my own.

If you have followed AJ and me on social media for the past few weeks, you’ll know that we went on a road trip and camped a lot. Though I try to take this sort of time to get offline and “off-the-grid” it’s hard for me to completely separate myself from social …read more

Cold Pea Salad

By Elise Bauer Long warm summer days are perfect for chilled pea salad!
This recipe uses frozen peas, which you don’t even have to defrost, green onions, water chestnuts, and smoked almonds. The peas do thaw a bit, but they’re wonderful crunchy and cold too.
I first encountered this delightful salad at a friend’s potluck. It was one of the dishes that everyone went back for for seconds.
I’m not sure of the original source of the recipe, but since the recipes calls for Smokehouse Almonds, perhaps the almond company? It could easily be made with tamari almonds as well. You just want salty, crunchy, roasted …read more

Pear Cooking Guide

By Erin Alderson Post sponsored by California Pears. See below for more details. With pear season in California off to a good start, I thought I would share with you a bit about using pears. One of the things that makes me excited about pears right now is the overlap with summer produce, especially fruit. Pairing fresh pears with berries makes for a delicious yogurt or pancake topping. A pear-berry jam is also wonderful and on current heavy rotation with our nut-butter sandwiches. Beyond that, I’m also fresh off canning about 15 pounds of Bartlett pears. Currently lining my shelves are spiced pears …read more

Blender Piña Colada

By Garrett McCord You may associate piña coladas with laid-back poolside vacations, but this mix of rum, coconut, and pineapple is actually a pillar of the tiki drink canon.
Quite a few bartenders and bars have claimed to have created the now famous piña colada over the years, but the drink’s true origins are a bit murky. There’s even evidence that traders in the 19th century mixed rum with coconut water and mashed pineapple for what would have been a sort of proto-piña!
In the end, though, I guess it doesn’t really matter. Because piña coladas are amazing.
If you’re looking for a refreshing, sultry cocktail …read more

Smashed Potato Salad with Pesto Dressing

By Jacqueline Meldrum I eat a lot more salads in the summer, even when the weather is bleugh. Sometimes we have a salad like this smashed potato salad or a pasta salad for dinner (like we did last night), for lunch it might be a couscous salad and at other meals you will often find salad on the side. In fact I think we eat more salad vegetables than any other type at this time of year. Salads are so quick and easy and a lot less cooking too.This smashed potato salad came about after I got a new grill. My George Foreman …read more

Creamed Corn Barley

By Erin Alderson Creamed corn is one of those items that I always look fondly upon from my childhood. I can really only relate it to the holidays, specifically my family’s ‘recipe’ for corn casserole. Nevertheless, the idea of creamed corn makes me happy; just not from a can. Also, at least for this recipe, there’s no cream in sight. One of this season’s cookbook pick-ups helped guide me a bit on this. Jeremy Fox’s On Vegetables relies on corn, and only corn, to make creamed corn (and a subsequent vegan polenta which is amazing.) I took the method and applied it here …read more

Done well, ceviche means fish with a perfectly firm but tender texture, a bright citrus taste, and a pure fish flavor that you might associate with the freshest sashimi.

Summer Vegetable Pasta with Chickpeas

By Erin Alderson While some of my recipes stem from wonderful restaurant dishes, others are created out of disappointment. Take for example this vegetable pasta dish. I had gone to a favorite restaurant of mine, ordered their seasonal veg-friendly pasta, and received one of the most disappointing meals I’ve had in some time. The ratio of pasta to vegetables sat somewhere around 10:1 and there was no sauce. None. I’m not one for overly sauce pasta but this took that to an extreme. And so, I set out to right that pasta dish with an easy summer recipe. I love tossing all the …read more
