Nothing speaks to me of spring like a salmon salad. It's light and pretty and herby, and when you add pasta it becomes a real meal.
Stand on any block around lunchtime near Amazon.com's downtown Seattle headquarters and there are two common sights: people walking their dogs and people buying lunch at food trucks.
In the heart of Noxubee County, out on Elon Road in Macon, there's a pretty patch full of strawberries just waiting to star in a luscious dessert, fresh salad, salsa or summery drink.
I have been making a half-hearted attempt to pare down my cookbooks. We hope to move into a much smaller home some day, and I have to give up something in return for asking Terry to throw out his college textbooks and notes.
We all know that eating fish several times a week is a healthy goal. But a lot of otherwise accomplished home cooks still find cooking fish a bit intimidating. The biggest worry? Drying it out.

This is one of the prettiest dishes to dress a spring -- or dreaming of spring -- table.
The name will get your attention; the taste will seal the deal. That's what a soup by Chef Paul Brasfield and the Bin 612 team did at the 2016 SOUPer Bowl in Starkville.

At Easter, there is just nothing better than a spiral-cut ham!
People often ask me what my most-used kitchen tool is (a high-speed blender). But if you were to ask my mom that same question 30 years ago, I am sure she would have answered her Pyrex baking dish.
Sometimes simple is just what the doctor ordered. And sometimes cake is just what the doctor ordered.
Cabbage is almost as popular on St. Patrick's Day as green beer! And that's because cabbage -- unlike green beer! -- is a quintessential part of Irish cuisine (along with bacon and potatoes).
St. Patrick's Day -- the Feast of Saint Patrick, La Fheile Padraig -- is next Thursday.
