How to make your kids love you in 4 ingredients.
Bring back memories? How about we make some new memories with whatever the heck you feel like sprinkling on top of your chocolate-covered bananas? After all, you're an adult. You get to decide.

Don't forget the spuds the #labordayweekend  .
Roasted potatoes on the grill magically means you can indulge your craving for roasted potatoes during sweltering summer without heating up the entire kitchen. You're welcome.

a #quickle   #pickle  #recipe for you.
A Scandinavian-style pickle that's subtly perfumed with dill, distinctly sweet, and just a little sour. It's so simple it doesn't even require turning on the stove during the dog days of summer.

Hello, gorgeous!
This milk chocolate truffles recipe is simple to make, complex in taste, and easy as can be to gift (provided you can slip some out of the house unnoticed).

Remember Chipwiches? (Am I dating myself?) Have at it!
This isn't a recipe. It's a reminder. You know, of summer and playfulness and the magic of indulging in ice cream for dinner.

Ho-la! Gotta love this salad idea. Run to the grill now.
Subtly flavored chicken skewers that deconstruct the classic Caesar salad into simple and spectacular components.

Ooooooooooh!
Why spend half your paycheck on pricey infused waters when you can make them at home? It's easy, inexpensive, and lovely. Think of it as sorta like sangria without the wine.

I have a Ball Jar Infuser that I bought last summer au Walmart. I fill it with fruit, citrus and herbs to make infused drinks. Love it. Also bought a cup with its own Infuser and straw that I got at Dollar Tree.

Can you feel the love?
Ice cream bars are a very, very personal thing. Which is exactly why we love this approach, which essentially allows you to make whatever custom combination of store-bought ice cream, chocolate, and coatings you fancy.

Grilled hanger steak, unadorned, is nothing shabby. But grilled hanger steak with a dollop of this sorta smoky, slightly sweet, incredibly versatile red onion raita? Prepare for accolades.

For all you smoke heads... Um, I mean grilling smoke heads. Listen up.
Remember those wee rounds of shrink-wrapped smoked Cheddar from holidays past? This will banish the memory forever.

I say it's a free country, and if they have a problem they can always emigrate to Britain.

+Memoirist +Cookbook Author +Recipes Publisher +Podcaster +Guest Radio Host: The Splendid Table
Introduction
I'm the author of the cookbook The New Portuguese Table: Exciting Flavors from Europe’s Western Coast, which won the 2010 IACP First Book/Julia Child Award. My work has appeared in New York Times, Martha Stewart Living, Saveur, Bon Appétit, Gourmet, Food & Wine, Pastry Art & Design, Food Arts, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Sun-Times, The Washington Post, Charlotte Observer. 

My writing has been featured in the Best Food Writing series from 2001 to 2014. I won the 2008 James Beard Award for Newspaper Feature Writing Without Recipes for my article “In a ’64 T-Bird, Chasing a Date with a Clam” and was nominated for the same award the following year for my article “Perfection? Hint: It’s Warm and Has a Secret,” both from the New York Times.  My site, Leite's Culinaria, also won a James Beard Award in 2006 and 2007. And I was a 2006 winner of the Bert Green Award for Food Journalism. 

On radio, I've been a guest on "Last Chance Foods," a segment of NPR's "All Things Considered," as well as a frequent guest on the Martha Stewart radio program "Living Today." I've been featured on Lucinda Scala Quinn's program "Mad Hungry." I was also a guest host of the Martha Stewart radio program “Cooking Today." Currently, I'm a correspondent for the public radio’s food program The Splendid Table hosted by Lynne Rossetto Kasper. 

On TV, I'm a regular guest cook on WTNH-TV, have appeared on The Today Show's cooking segment several times, and was profiled on "Radical Sabbatical" on Fine Living Network. Most recently I appeared on "United Stuff of America" on H2 (History Channel 2) as well as "Beat Bobby Flay" on Food Network.
