Recipe News: Lemonade Chicken

"Dyann Shaver from Madras, Ore., was looking for a recipe she has lost for making a nontraditional type of barbecued chicken that used concentrated lemonade in the sauce. She said she found the recipe in an article about barbecuing in Better Homes and Garden magazine in the 1970s.

Steve Newman from Santa Rosa, Calif., shared his recipe for making barbecued chicken with lemonade concentrate. He said that while concentrated lemonade might seem like a surprising ingredient, this chicken never fails to please. He also said that he sometimes substitutes limeade or orange juice concentrate with equally tasty results.

Recipe News: Make summer super with potluck-perfect recipes

"From block parties to backyard barbecues, summer is when people get together and enjoy the delectable tastes of the season. The classic American potluck is always a favorite gathering, especially when friends, family and neighbors bring out their best dishes for everyone to enjoy.

The perfect recipes for summer parties are ones that are quick and easy - providing maximum flavor for minimum time spent in the kitchen. When it comes to cooking for a crowd, go with something that will reliably get rave reviews, while keeping in mind whom you're cooking for. If it's a crowd with a more sophisticated palate, you can try something a little more adventurous. If it is a group with notoriously picky kids, go a little more mild with kid-pleasing classics. If it's a big enough crowd, you might even want to try both. "

  • All-American Raisin Apple Tartlets

Recipe News: Mini Coconut Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting

"Today I am posting my road test of a recipe for Mini Coconut Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting that I adapted from the cookbook Salty Sweets by Christie Matheson, which I read about on the fine blog The Kitchn.

I, like many of those in the big old blogosphere, have strong feelings about cupcakes. And today's cupcakes, I believe, are like some kind of creature from a horror movie - you know the creature which some nice, spectacled scientists have been quietly nurturing in their lab but that then spirals out of control, growing fast and bloated and threatening to take over the world.

Recipe News: Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Tasty Mexican-American Recipes

"Cinco de Mayo, the 5th of May, observes the Mexican army's surprising victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. According to Wikipedia: “The Battle of Puebla was important for at least two reasons: First, although considerably outnumbered, the Mexicans defeated a much better-equipped French army. Second, it was significant because since the Battle of Puebla no country in the Americas has been invaded by an army from another continent.”

Except for a national day off work, Cinco de Mayo has had minimal significance as a Mexican holiday beyond the region of Puebla, but it is widely observed in the United States and in other parts of the world as a festive celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. The festivities have come to recognize a significant segment of diversity in our country."

Includes recipe for:


  • Tomatillo Shrimp Enchiladas

  • Frozen Margarita Pie
