Grilled Bass with Lemon and Herbs
Catfish 'N' Chips
Packed with heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, this low-fat fish recipe ensures you'll eat right at dinner tonight. Fresh herbs and lemon slices brighten it up.
This healthier spin on classic fish and chips has double benefits: Catfish is low in fat, and the use of sweet potatoes in place of some of the white potatoes boosts vitamins.
A chunky topping of Kalamata olives, diced tomatoes, capers, parsley, and onion adds pizzazz to healthy tilapia.
Tote-and-Slice Loaf Sandwich
Scott Peacock creates perfect succotash with five ingredients: sweet corn, tender butter beans, a hint of country ham, and a bit of butter and cream.
Watermelon Cooler Punch
Ideal for a potluck or party, this mile-high sandwich features salami, dried tomatoes, green olives, banana peppers, and a creamy pesto spread.
Sparkling Peach Punch
Blended watermelon combined with white grape juice, lime juice, sugar, mint, and club soda makes a refreshing summer drink.
Skillet Chicken Salad Pitas
Impress party guests with this fizzy drink featuring peach nectar, fresh peach slices, lemon juice, and ginger ale.
Chicken marinated in Asian sweet chili sauce, and combined with fresh veggies and a creamy dressing, makes a delicious filling for toasted pita bread.
Pork and Noodle Salad
The flavors of pesto mix and mingle into a salad of fresh basil and tomatoes from the garden. Add chicken or fish to make it a dinner salad.
Southern Cobb Salad
A ginger-soy dressing gives a bit of Asian flair to this crisp pork and cabbage salad. Easy wonton crisps make a delightful side dish.
Smoked Salmon and Melon Salad
A creamy cheese dressing pulls together crisp fried chicken, black-eyed peas, sweet peppers, and pecans for a satisfying salad.
Saucy Country Ribs
Make this delicious layered salad for brunch or a light, no-cook dinner. Lively, spicy-sweet cardamom complements the smoky salmon and cool melon.
Sweet and Tangy Four-Bean Salad
Bake ribs until tender in the oven and then grill them with our trio of sauces: a citrus sauce infused with rosemary, a spicy rhubarb sauce, and a sweet mustard sauce.
Potato Salad with Country Ranch Dressing
Update the standard three-bean salad with a fourth bean--edamame--and a bold dressing that includes mustard, garlic, and red wine.
Blue Cheese Mini Corn Dogs
This potato salad recipe is super creamy thanks to a combo of ranch dressing and mayo. It's also wonderfully flavorful: The potatoes are roasted with onions and garlic.
Summer Peach Pie Twisters
The crackly cornmeal crust of these pint-size appetizers is studded with bacon and blue cheese. For a retro-decadent splurge, serve with homemade blue cheese dip or prepared honey mustard.
Serve this luscious, pastry-like pie with a scoop of vanilla or cinnamon ice cream. A swatch of fabric tied at the rim transforms a paper cup into a cute dessert dish.
Apricot Pork with Garlic Green Beans
Dress up frozen lemonade concentrate with fresh fruit, herbs, and even veggies. Our recipes show you how to do it three ways.
Turkey Burgers with Mustard Sauce
Our three-ingredient apricot glaze makes this pork recipe irresistible. The green bean side is so easy you can make it in the microwave.
