  • BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Tacos
    by Megan Gordon on 18/07/2018 at 2:01 pm

    Tacos are my “single girl” food. You know, the food that you make whenever your partner, kids, or roommates are out of town and you get to sit down and be really honest about what you and only you feel like eating? I never tire of them and am always looking for ways to amp up my taco game. Continue reading "BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Tacos" » […]

  • 10 Ways Use a Pint of Berries This Summer
    by Emma Christensen on 17/07/2018 at 2:00 pm

    Blueberries! Strawberries! Raspberries! Just give me ALL the berries! The love for sweet, ripe, juicy berries and other fruits has always been strong in my family — my mom often says that the one thing she could be sure my brother and I would eat when we were kids was the fruit salad. For me, the farmers’ market this time of year is like walking into a candy store. So many choices. So little time. Continue reading "10 Ways Use a Pint of Berries This Summer" » […]

  • Skillet Chicken with Cheesy Orzo and Zucchini
    by Katie Workman on 16/07/2018 at 2:00 pm

    There is a true beauty to one-skillet dinners, and it’s not just the fact that there is only one pan to wash. It’s just very satisfying to place a skillet right in the middle of the table and scoop out essentially your whole meal. It’s family style dining at its best. (Just be careful of the hot pan!)

  • Greek Pasta Salad
    by Sabrina Modelle on 15/07/2018 at 2:30 pm

    Packed with fresh tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers—not to mention Kalamata olives and feta cheese—this pasta salad has all the flavor of your favorite Greek salad! The lemony garlicky dressing is also flavorful enough to stand up to olives and feta, but it doesn’t overpower the more delicately flavored ingredients such as cucumber and tomato.

  • Zucchini Tomato Quiche
    by Elise Bauer on 14/07/2018 at 2:30 pm

    One thing we gardeners can count on in the peak of summer is a surplus of zucchini and tomatoes, right? That basil plant in the corner of the garden bed is pretty happy too. If you are looking for ideas of what to make with the most summery of summer produce, check out this zucchini tomato quiche! It’s simple enough as quiches go—shallots, shredded zucchini, an assortment of colorful cherry tomatoes, basil, and herbs with a custard base of eggs, milk, cream, sour cream, and Parmesan. Tomatoes, basil, and zucchini play well together as a matter of principle, and they work beautifully in this quiche. Every bite is a taste of summer. Continue reading "Zucchini Tomato Quiche" » […]

  • How to Blind Bake a Pie Crust
    by Elise Bauer on 14/07/2018 at 2:24 pm

    Many sweet and savory pie recipes require pre-baking or “blind baking” a crust. No one really knows where the term got its name, but “blind” baking a crust means baking it without a filling. Continue reading "How to Blind Bake a Pie Crust" » […]

  • Meal Plan for July Week 3
    by Summer Miller on 14/07/2018 at 2:00 pm

    This month, Summer Miller is back, sharing her meal plans for July. Summer is a mom, a full-time food writer, and also helps test the fabulous recipes we bring you every week at Simply Recipes. Summer has arrived launching cannonballs of heat and humidity. The air is thick and heavy like wet blankets. I can feel the weight of it on my skin and in my lungs. I wade through the sticky and heat-stricken Midwestern masses by day, awaiting the cooler evenings that seem endless this time of year. The fireflies are out in droves looking for love in the twilight skies and between blades of grass peppered with white clover. Every evening is an opportunity for dinner and a show. Meals by the window or on the porch suit me just fine in July even in the thick summer air. Continue reading "Meal Plan for July Week 3" » […]
