This delicious dish uses the flavors of Tuscany to create a tasty meal that's easier to cook than it tastes!

I made these spring rolls prior to going sailing. Wrapped tightly enough, they're great for portable goodness.

Grilled lobster always sounded great, but I could never quite get the execution the way I wanted it. This recipe finally satisfies my need for grill with my need for succulent lobster

OK, so maybe it's not a meal, but if you've just come off the week I just had, you want one. Heck, you NEED one. Besides, what better time to enjoy a tropical drink than the middle of winter?

This is a light, quick dish that\'s perfect for warm spring nights (or cool ones!). It\'s super healthy, having only 1 tsp. butter and an avocado for fat.

If you plan ahead and make too much couscous for dinner, the next day you can have it in a salad. We did that recently when we chartered a boat down in the BVI. We were going from Cooper Island over to the Baths on Virgin Gorda for the day. It was blowing somewhere between 17 and 22 knots (that\'s fairly strong and choppy), so we really didn\'t want to have anything overly-involved for lunch.

Baked Apples and Steel Cut Oatmeal

Baked Apples and Steel Cut Oatmeal

Over Christmas, I got a great present: we went to Colorado and it was actually COLD, with (some) SNOW, no less! The great thing about crisp, Colorado mornings (as opposed to the bone-chilling, albeit technically warmer ones we have in Dallas), is that they invite you to get up and enjoy the morning at a leisurely pace. We found ourselves with far too much fruit. So I decided to take advantage of our leisurely morning and, after about four cups of coffee, cook up some steel-cut oatmeal (that's NOT anywhere close to the Quaker Instant stuff, thank-you-very-much) and bake some apples to go with it.

Truffled, Slow-Scrambled Eggs

Truffled, Slow-Scrambled Eggs

My cousin, Catherine, stopped by for a visit recently and made us something absolutely sinful: as her brother calls them, "frenchified eggs." The thing about Catherine, other than that she never learned to draw inside the lines, is that she lives our loud. If she had a leopard-print scarf and big sunglasses, she'd get a Cary Grant boyfriend with a convertible just so she could drive around a la Audrey Hepburn. Anyhoo, part of living out loud for the cousin is an absolute intolerance for low-fat cooking. Let's just say her eggs were tasty. I, on the other hand, have a doctor- and spousal-mandated LOVE for low-fat cooking. So, when we found ourselves wandering through our crack dealer, and noticed they had fresh truffles on sale, we immediately bought some and went about trying to decide how we should cook them. After a few quasi-failed attempts (I curdled a truffle and clam cream sauce), I settled on stealing my cousin's eggs...with some modification.

Chilean Sea Bass with Tomato-Basil Sauce

This is a lightly-seasoned dish that lets the flavor of the fish come through. Whatever you do, don't use a heavy hand with the salt and pepper.

This is a quick and healthy summer salad with a bit of an asian flare

Genuine home made salsa. Make a lot, because it goes quickly
