Recipe News: These burger recipes have sauce and sass

Chef J.J. Boston, director of culinary events at Grillmaster's Garden in Zionsville, Ind., provided the recipes for these burgers and suggests serving them on buns or bread lightly buttered and grilled, and considering using interesting condiments. For instance, add wasabi to mayonnaise to spice it up. Boston used drained and processed pickled vegetables, called giardiniera or jardiniere, to top his Tuscan Burger. Salsa or guacamole can add a Mexican flair, and smoked cheeses can add an appealing flavor.

Recipe News: Get ready for summer berries with pudding, pie recipes

From the truly British summer pudding to the all-Canadian rhubarb custard pie, fresh fruit makes summer desserts all the sweeter.

Summer pudding isn't exactly self-explanatory. Although posh cooks use ladyfingers as a base, the genuine item begins with white bread slices, preferably (and amazingly) the cheap-and-squishy kind you don't usually buy. Somehow, its spongy structure works well here.

Includes recipes for:

  • Red Berry Summer Pudding

  • Cherry-Berry Upside-down Pie

  • Rhubarb Strawberry Pie

  • Blueberry-Raspberry Custard Pie

  • Rhubarb Sour Cream Pie

Recipe News: Strawberry season will be on everyone's minds with these recipes

''With strawberry season fast approaching, I wanted to send in this recipe for pound cake,'' e-mails Kathy Lane of Bay City. She says that unlike shortcake you buy in the store, this cake will not get soggy, meaning it's also great for a punch bowl cake.

The recipe came from an old Jell-O cookbook that belonged to her grandma. Kathy says the cakes can be made ahead and frozen. They thaw in only 15 minutes.

Arlene Dempster of Rhodes also has strawberries on her mind. She e-mails she made this pie the other day, and, boy, did her family like it.

Also e-mailing is Bev Klem-ish of Bay City. She writes that many times her friends are looking for recipes for two servings or even one. Her Summer Bean Salad is a simple salad that is delicious and easy to make. It makes a very good lunch for one, or add meat and you have a full meal for two. It is easy to double to four servings.

One note: I must have been thinking about Pineapple Upside Down Cake when I wrote the recipe title over last week's Rhubarb Upside Down Cake. There is no pineapple in that recipe, but if you're adventurous, you might add some.

Includes recipes for:

  • Pound Cake

  • Strawberry Cheesecake Pie

  • Summer Bean Salad

Recipe News: Recipe for Grilled Thai Chicken Breasts

The intense, dry heat of the grill can be a chicken breast's worst enemy.

That's because these naturally low-fat cuts have a tough time holding their moisture under these cooking conditions. But fear of tough, dry meat need not banish this healthy food from the grate as peak grilling season dawns.

Getting moist and flavorful boneless, skinless chicken breasts off the grill can be easy. It all starts at the market.

Jennifer Armentrout, the test kitchen manager for Fine Cooking magazine, recommends buying air-chilled chicken breasts, not water-chilled (this usually is indicated on the label). She says the water chilling process can dilute the chicken's flavor.

Armentrout also suggests buying chicken breasts that are all the same size. Uniform pieces will cook more evenly, lessening your chances of over- or undercooking some.

  • Grilled Thai Chicken Breasts with Herb-Lemongrass Crust

  • Salted Oatmeal Cookies
