Yellow squash, zucchini and grape tomatoes team up with herbs in this east side dish to sing the real song of summer. Nutritious and delicious, this simple side is surprisingly filling. If you could only ever have one side dish ever again, what would it be?
A lightly sweet griddle cake perfect for butter and jam. Buttermilk and sour cream add tangy flavor and a tender, fluffy middle to this cousin of pancakes. A few months ago I learned about a griddle cake, and it’s changed my life. Okay, maybe that’s hyperbolic—but only a little…
A tangy, summery sauce that’s both comforting and refreshing.

Gooey, nutty melted brie and tangy-sweet cranberry sauce stuffed in a crispy, golden-brown puff pastry crust. Rosemary and orange notes and a topping of sugar and pecans makes this a perfect holiday party appetizer. Christmas may be over, but we still have some of the holiday season to go…
