This pasta dish is a great way to turn leftover salmon into a new meal. Plus, since the salmon is in small flakes and tossed with a lot of other ingredients, it is a sneaky way to get your family to stock up on heart-healthy omega-3's.

Blueberry Sorbet

This refreshing sorbet highlights blueberries so it was a natural choice for one of the sweets on my Tapas For a Cure menu. You can add the simple sugar syrup to taste, making the blueberry purée mixture as sweet or tart as you would like.

Hummus is a great source of protein and fiber so it makes a healthy and satisfying snack. I like to serve it with pita bread wedges and veggie sticks, or spread it on sandwiches and wraps.

This homemade version of cocktail sauce is great for crab or shrimp cocktail. I love the kick from the horseradish but if you don't like spice you can reduce the amount of horseradish or omit it altogether.

In honor of Syttende Mai, the Norwegian Constitution Day (also known as Norway's National Day), I decided to make a blueberry cake and decorate it like the Norwegian flag. Local strawberries are in season so they became a natural choice for the red foundation of the flag.

Lemon Meringue Pie

Monday, May 10, 2010


My mother-in-law makes the best lemon meringue pie so I am thankful that she shared her recipe with me! As far as meringue pies go, it is fairly easy because her recipe calls for a box of lemon pudding as the base. But her secret is to add some butter and fresh lemon juice to the pudding mix. This makes the pie creamy and adds a burst of crisp lemon zest flavor that can only come from fresh lemons.
