It doesn’t get any better than this thick, creamy tomato bisque recipe, seasoned with just a hint of basil. I love serving it with a big slice of fresh, crusty sourdough bread (or better yet – served IN a sourdough bread bowl when I’m feeling extra decadent!) Ever since I was a little kid, tomato soup has been my reining queen of soups. I loved the condensed, canned version topped with broken up crackers. It was comfort food when I

Pasta Salad with Asparagus, Asiago and Lemon is a light, seasonal side dish. Serve it at a barbecue or alongside a simple springtime dinner. I find a lot of pasta salads to be overly heavy for my taste. Pasta is already heavy enough on its own, you know? Adding things like Italian dressing or mayonnaise don’t have much appeal to me. I do, however, enjoy serving up simple pasta salads such as this one, with lemon and olive oil-based dressings.

This easy homemade ramen comes together in just 15 minutes. A few simple ingredients create a rich mushroom broth that is incredibly flavorful. I still remember the first time I tried instant ramen during my high school years. It was so salty, but in that good junk food kind of way that was appealing to me as a teenager. My friend who served it to me prepared it by soaking the noodles in hot water until they were soft, draining
This Heirloom Tomato Panzanella is a perfect way to enjoy summer’s most beautiful tomato! This is my absolute favorite time of year for produce in Maryland. We’ve got stone fruit, berries, sweet corn, fairytale eggplant and tomatoes (and that’s barely scratching the surface of everything that’s available). Between my CSA and the farmer’s market, I feel incredibly lucky to have so many options at my fingertips. That’s why when I first heard about a campaign called Save The Flavors, I was a
