Recipe: Corn, Tomato & Black Bean Tostadas with Creamy Cilantro Dressing — Recipes From The Kitchn

2012_07_26-CornTostadas01.jpgI'm lucky enough to live in an area where even modest neighborhood cafes get their produce from local farms and change their menus often to reflect whatever their farmers are harvesting that week. I recently had my first taste of sweet summer corn at one such cafe, in a dish that combined chunks of shaved corn with tangy little cherry tomatoes and a creamy cilantro dressing. Sweet, crunchy and bursting with pure summer flavor, it was so good I knew I had to recreate it. In my kitchen somewhere along the way the combination transformed into a crispy, black-bean-speckled tostada — no complaints here. More

"Thank You" Treat Suggestions for My Office Co-Workers? — Recipe Questions

2012-07-25-OfficeTreatsGQ.jpgQ: Next week is the end of my summer internship. As a thank you, I wanted to bring something to share. There are only five of us, so I don't need a lot of food. However, one person is allergic to gluten and dairy-intolerant while another person doesn't like sweets. Anyone have ideas?

Lunch Recipe: Golden Quinoa Salad with Radish, Dill & Avocado — Recipes from The Kitchn

2012_07_24-QuinoaSalad.jpgIt took me a long time to warm up to quinoa. I felt like I was the only one not on the super-grain-(that's-not-really-a-grain-but-who-cares) bandwagon. But my attempts at quinoa had all turned out sticky and faintly bitter, a health food to choke down. So how did I get from there to here, to this lemon-scented golden salad with crunchy bits of cucumber, radish, and almonds? (There are dates, dill, and Parmesan in there too, plus a secret ingredient that really makes it sing.) It only takes one quinoa dish, it turns out, to make a difference. More

How To Make Light, Airy Pavlova

Despite being named after a world-class ballerina, I can't help but think of the pavlova as a rather humble and homely thing.
