Re:Thai-Style Spicy Chicken in Lettuce Cups

Thank you for this recipe! This larb is heavenly! So many tastes going on in the mouth at once. Ground my own chicken and followed the recipe exactly - including the toasted and ground rice. Can't wait to make it again!

Re:Green Beans with Crispy Pancetta, Mushrooms, and Shallots

A vibrant alternative to traditional green bean casserole! Make the components ahead, bring to room temperature, then assemble at the last minute. Thick-sliced smoked bacon is a nice alternative to pancetta. Replace most of the bacon grease with olive oil before adding the mushrooms and shallots. Try doubling the mustard and vinegar for a more assertive flavor.

Re:Latin-Style Flank Steak

This flank steak is a family favorite. The lime in the chipotle butter adds an extra dimension and is well worth the trouble to make. We keep a constant supply of chipotle butter all summer long for use on corn on the cob! Heavenly!

Re:Puréed Summer Squash Soup with Raita

Too many summer squash? This is a great way to use squash without adding a lot of calories! I often grill the squash before adding it to the soup pot. Raita is the essential finishing touch. Try low fat yogurt in place of whole milk yogurt.

Re:Southwestern Squash Sauté

This dish is an absolute celebration of summer vegetables! For extra flavor and kick, add 12 teaspoon Bittersweet Smoked Spanish along with the chili powder. Try it as a main dish served with naan, pita, or tortillas.

Re:Tomato 'Confit' (Slow-Roasted Tomatoes)

In our neighborhood, no summer is complete without one or more tomato roast-a-thons! With several people working together, we quickly prepare enough tomatoes for double, triple, or even quadruple batches of these roasted tomatoes. Try a variety of tomato colors for jewel-like hues and intense tomato taste. Using up the finished tomatoes is never a problem. They quickly disappear into salads, sandwiches, pasta dishes, and served alone, are a divine side dish.

Re:Southern Thai Rice Salad

This salad has it all! The flavors and textures are vibrant, the presentation is gorgeous, and it can be mostly made ahead. Guests were dazzled by the appearance of the salad as it was presented at the table and actually paused for a moment of silence while it was photographed! After tossing, the salad was eagerly devoured by one and all.
