Oil Tanker Burgers

The summer's latest burger obsession, one invented by a creative young cook, age 10. He calls it an "Oil Tanker" (an unusual burger name which makes particular sense to a ten-year old ...) but this burger is stacked so high, maybe it's not just an Oil Tanker but a Super Tanker . I had another recipe planned for today but, really, a long weekend is just ahead and all these layers add up to the best burgers we've had in a long time ... so if burgers are on your menu, consider an Oil Tanker. Happy three-day weekends, all! A Special Summer Burger. Weekday Easy, Weekend Special.

Shrimp with Tomatoes, Spinach & Feta

Oh people, take a good look here, this is one of my favorite suppers in a long time, shrimp cooked in a nest of tomatoes, spinach and feta cheese. It's just gorgeous! It's my rendition of a Greek dish called Shrimp (Garides) Saganaki, a favorite (or so I read ...) at Greek tavernas. Here, a summer version of Shrimp Saganaki uses ripe, juicy summer tomatoes and a winter version, equally good, uses canned tomatoes. Both will have you looking for good bread to sop up the juices! One-Pot Supper. Quick Supper. Fresh & Seasonal. Low Carb. High Protein. Weight Watchers Friendly. Naturally Gluten Free.

Warm Goat Cheese Appetizer with Mini Tomatoes & Capers

An Easy, Impromptu Summer Appetizer Oh people, if only dinner were this easy! But then again? Add a bottle of chilled white wine and you just might be inclined to go ahead and call this big jumble of warm goat cheese and tiny tangy tomatoes and capers dinner , after all. Simple & Summery. Easy Enough for Everyday, Special Enough for an Occasion. Perfect for Casual Summer Entertaining & Convivial Gatherings.

Summer’s Best Melon Ball & Blueberry Salad

Pure summer in a bowl, a pile of jewel-colored watermelon and cantaloupe balls plus blueberries tossed in a simple sweet 'n' tart dressing made with no more than fresh lime juice, honey and a bare touch of Tabasco. Very Summery! Beautiful Color! Cool & Refreshing! Fresh & Seasonal. Great for Potlucks and Light Summer Meals. Weight Watchers Friendly. Easily Vegan.
