The summer is the perfect time to grill! My husband Tim and I recently bought a new grill for our first home. We have been breaking it in this week with some of my favorite family recipes, I enjoyed growing up. Here are a few healthy grilling ideas for the family. If you don’t have access to a barbeque, you can use a grill pan on the stove top instead.

I love shrimp and mix it into pasta, rice, and quinoa all the time. Here is a tasty shrimp and basil pasta dish, perfect for a summer night.
This flatbread pizza is my new favorite recipe to make (and eat!). The warm goat cheese and the fig with balsamic are a wonderful flavor combination. My fiance and I were out to dinner at the Norwood Club in NYC a few months ago and ordered a similar item off their appetizer menu. I am used to having fig, arugula, and goat cheese in a salad, so when I discovered how great they taste in pizza form, I could not wait to eat it again! Read more

Spring is finally here and not a moment too soon! Mushrooms are back in season, which reminds me of an easy recipe I like to make when I do not have a lot of time in the evening.
