Goat Cheese And Fig Buttons?

I don’t really even know what to call these, and I’ll be the first to admit that is one sloppy plate. I was just hell-bent on trying out an idea, and since we have a new baby and aren’t getting much sleep, sometimes all I can do is to try and make an approximation and …

Healthy Thai-Style Salad of Grilled Eggplant, Tofu, and Watermelon – Recipe

I'm calling this a Thai-style salad, but it could just as easily be Vietnamese or Cambodian. It was ultra-refreshing, and because the dressing is oil-free, very low calorie as well. This kind of salad can work either as part of a larger Southeast Asian spread, or by itself as a light meal.

Garlic Scape, Ricotta and Zatar Pizza

I always look for garlic scapes at the farmer’s market this time of year. Apparently I’m not alone. Lots of bloggers have used them lately, including Danielle at Habeas Brulee (scape tartlets), Derrick at SFist (sauteed with favas and fingerlings), and Chip at Cookthink (with a running scape tally).

What is a garlic scape? It is …

Summer Risotto With Corn And Zucchini – Recipe

Summery risotto with corn, zucchini, and tomato oil

One of the great things about risotto is that it is a blank canvas on which you can paint the produce of any place and season.  Restaurants tend to make the same stereotyped combinations over and over again, but don't let that limit your options!

I needed a light …
