Gorgonzola Kale Brioche Tart (Savory Tart Recipe) Recipe

I usually make savory tarts with a pâte brisée (which is the classic pastry crust) or pâte sablée (crumbly, shortbread savory crust). But this time, since I prepared a tart with a very pungent filling with the use of gorgonzola, I wanted to soften the flavors with brioche crust. 

To keep things somewhat "light", I added little dollops of kale pesto to the top of the tart. Healthy, you ask? Maybe not, but at least we got to eat a nice portion of greens at the same time!

Kale Risotto Recipe

07.30.14 by Jackie

My husband Lulu has been traveling nonstop for his work these days. I haven't cooked for him in so long.  He flew back from Dallas last night, so I thought I'd surprise him with one of his favorite meals: risotto. This rice dish is so versatile that there are always new opportunities for creativity; this time I flavored it with kale and sweet basil leaves. I also added sharp Cheddar and Pecorino cheese and a touch of heavy cream at the end.

Lulu's flight got delayed and he ended coming home really late. So I packed it for him this morning. Hopefully his schedule won't be too busy during lunch time and he'll be able to enjoy it today!

Asian-Inspired Charred Corn Salad Recipe Recipe

Corn is in season and it's very inexpensive right now. Charring it and turning it into a salad was a great opportunity to use loads of it. I wanted to give it an Asian twist so I dressed the corn with a miso vinaigrette and added diced, ripe mango and some sesame seeds at the end.

During our recent trip to France, I discovered the multiple uses of Le Puy green lentils. These French lentils are ideal when following a vegetarian diet (which is the case for my husband Lulu). Did you know? First, they're packed with protein. They were orignally grown in the volcanic soils of the Puy area, near Clermont-Ferrand in the heart of the Vend region of Western France.

Peach and Spinach Summer Salad Wrap Recipe Recipe

Temperatures are set to hit high numbers these days so to keep the house cool I've tried not to spend too much time behind the stove or use the oven too much. My go-to meal in this situation is fast, casual eating that requires minimal preparation and almost no cooking. My solution this weekend is to make summer salad wraps

I used ripe peaches, baby spinach, goat cheese, cranberries and balsamic vinegar. The wraps are tied together with lavash flatbread. The contrast of colors is strikingly beautiful. And can you guess when this healthy and tasty recipe was born? Last year, while working with the creative California Lavash team. You can find this exact same photo on one of their new, colorful packages.

A Dozen Delicious Recipes to Enjoy Corn this Summer  Recipe

Our family loves corn. I'm planning a barbecue pool party this weekend and I was browsing through recipes using corn to find inspiration. There are so many way to prepare corn. You could make a charred corn salad, use frozen or canned corn kernels for salsa, make a delicious broth with the cob, grill it whole or even make Vietnamese desserts. We love to nibble on them.

I gathered a dozen corn recipes. Hope this inspires you to create more new dishes and experiment with summer's golden vegetable.
