Recipe News: Healthy Grilled Cheese Recipes Paired with Organic Winter Ales

"Grilled cheese recipes are in high demand this time of year. Kids love them, parents love them, and yes - even your cocktail companions love them, too. Many grilled cheese sandwiches fall victim to terrible cheese, though. Those American "cheese" slices that jiggle like Jell-O, and have that putrid yellow hue and odd glossy sheen? Not cheese. There's no reason to reach for that stuff when you can buy tasty, organic cheeses that are good for you. With the right organic cheeses and rustic breads, you can build an awesome, healthier grilled cheese sandwich."

Recipe News: Chicken Stroganoff

"Sharon Skarbek from Bend, Ore., was looking for a recipe to make Chicken Stroganoff. She had misplaced a recipe she had for the dish which came from a package of frozen chicken breast from Trader Joe's. She said she called the market chain but was informed that they no longer had the recipe. Since I did not receive any reader responses to her query and because I know people are always interested in new and different ways to use chicken, I thought this one was worth investigating."

Recipe News: Quick Banana Coffee Cake Streusel Muffin

"If I'm going to bother to bake something, it had better be good.

And it needs to be easy and create as little mess as possible. If it also could combine the toasty, warm, cinnamony flavors of my favorite baked goods — banana bread, coffee cake and streusel toppings — the chances of me actually cranking up the oven increase dramatically.

Thus was the inspiration for these muffins, which are made entirely in the food processor, call for no unusual ingredients, come together in about 10 minutes, bake in just about 20 minutes, and have a flavor that will make you want to eat until your stomach hurts."

Recipe News: Greek Chicken with Red Sauce, Lemon Angel Cookies and more

"A Greek version of chicken cacciatore is stewed in tomato sauce much as the Italian classic, but the seasonings are quite different, we learned from two cooks who shared their recipes to help D.L. celebrate her great-uncle's 75th birthday. The only clue he'd given her was that the dish was made with chicken, tomatoes and lemon and served over pasta.

"My family is of Greek descent, so I am familiar with Greek cooking," wrote Tonia Papandropoulos. "I recognize the description of the chicken dish as it is very common in Greek cuisine and is called kotopoulo kokkinisto. The only part of the description that I do not know about is the inclusion of lemon in the recipe. Lemon can always be added by the person making the dish or by the person enjoying it."

  • Greek Chicken with Red Sauce

  • Rocco's Esquites (Grilled Mexican Street Corn)

  • Lemon Angel Cookies

Recipe News: Healthy Recipes: Summer Vegetable Soup

"With summer heading toward its waning stages, enjoy the best of the farmers’ market or your garden by creating a tasty vegetable soup enhanced by a combination of herbs.

Brown rice is the best choice from the paddies because it hasn’t been hulled and refined, retaining its fiber and nutrition and producing a slightly nutty taste. For the best leeks, look for large white bases that are not slimy, dried out or browning.

Celery, rich in vitamin K, originated in the Mediterranean and was used as a medicinal herb. The ancient Greeks called it selinon, and it’s mentioned in Homer’s Odyssey, which dates back to 850 BC. Available year round, the most common variety is the pale green Pascal. Purportedly, it was introduced to the United States when a Dutch immigrant arrived in Kalamazoo, Michigan, with a sack of celery seeds in the 1870s. Cooking softens it and celery provides a wonderful texture to the soup.

The dill, an ingredient in many Scandinavian and German dishes, is in the same family of plants as anise, fennel, cilantro, caraway and cumin. Pungent and aromatic, it adds a decidedly refreshing taste to the mixture. The thyme contributes a somewhat lemony, earthy flavor."

Includes recipe for:


  • Summer Vegetable Soup
