Two piadina Romagnola Italian flatbread sandwiches with tomato and mozzarella on a cutting board.

Here’s a fun and easy Italian recipe you probably already have the ingredients for at home. It’s a bit like our Pizza Dough recipe, but this flatbread requires no yeast and is cooked in a skillet on the stove rather than in the oven. Fill your piadina bread with your favorite fillings, or see our suggestions at the bottom of this post.

I recently received an absolutely beautiful cookbook, Quicker than Quick, from one of my favorite food creators, Pamela Salzman. We were given permission to share a recipe with you and my daughter Leila and I decided on these dreamy peanut butter oatmeal cookies. There are so many recipes I can’t wait to try, especially the Vegetarian Spring Roll Bowls, Tofu Tacos, and Eggplant Bolognese. I know you’re going to love many of the recipes in this book, so I’ll share it with my Amazon Affiliate link (this means I earn a small commission) below. 

We loved the subtle maple flavor and softness of these cookies. As the title of the book suggests, these cookies are quick and easy to make. No mixer needed. While these cookies were delicious for several days, the were amazing fresh and warm from the oven. Unless making them for a crowd, I would bake just a few cookies and freeze the rest of the dough for later.

A small jar filled with a peach shrub drink (drinking vinegar) is poured into a glass of ice to make a shrub cocktail.

Our apple cider vinegar drinks (hot, cold, and shots) have all been so popular lately that I thought I’d share another use for your ACV. When you have late summer or autumn fruit that’s just about to go bad, this simple fruit and vinegar recipe is an excellent way to preserve it. 

Keep a bottle or two of this zingy drinking vinegar syrup in the fridge to add to sparkling water or cocktails.

A close-up photograph of panzanella salad. This Italian tomato and bread salad has cucumbers capers, basil, and onions. A beautiful summer salad.

There are many things I love about Tuscan food and cooking. Simple, high quality ingredients are the star, and there is very little waste. Panzanella is a perfect example. Tuscan bread is typically quite flavorless and dry, and after the first day, many people would simply toss it out, but in recipes like traditional tomato bruschetta, ribollita, pappa al pomodoro, and panzanella, it can be brought back to life. 

I started working on this recipe a year ago in Tuscany, and am happy to finally be sharing it. Let’s take a look at how panzanella is traditionally made in Tuscany, and how I like to make it at home.

This simple chocolate banana avocado smoothie is creamy, cold, tasty, and filling. Like our Peanut Butter Nice Cream, it gets its sweet richness from natural ingredients like bananas. And like our Chocolate Chia Pudding, the deep chocolate flavor comes from a little cacao powder.

Have you ever wondered if you can freeze avocados? Or seen frozen avocado chunks at Costco and wondered how to use them? Keep reading to find out how to freeze and use avocados. 

Mature Haas avocados on a tree.

Haas avocado tree in California.

It’s Haas avocado season here in California, which means I’ve been picking avocados from our three backyard avocado trees daily. While avocados mature on the tree, they ripen after they are picked. I try to pick about 2 avocados a day to ensure a steady supply for guacamole or avocado toast

There are times though, that we end up with too many ripe avocados at once. And as many a meme will tell you, avocados can go from rock hard to overripe seemingly overnight. One very cool solution to this is Apeel technology, which keeps avocados ripe longer (this post isn’t sponsored, though we’ve worked together in the past featuring their caviar limes). 

When you find yourself with more avocados than you can use, whether you picked too many like I did, or stocked up when they were on sale, you may wonder…

A layered Mason jar salad recipe with French lentils, tomatoes, onion, lettuce, and a mustard vinaigrette makes a delicious and healthy meal prep lunch or dinner. One of my favorite cold French lentil salad recipes, meal prep style! 

A cold French lentil salad layered in a glass mason jar with mustard vinaigrette, lentils, tomatoes, red onion, and lettuce on top. This beautiful and healthy lentil salad is vegan and gluten free.

I’ve been making this cold French lentil salad recipe for years now. The inspiration came from the It’s All Good cookbook by Gwyneth Paltrow. I often rotate between this one with a mustard vinaigrette and my other favorite, Mediterranean Lentil Salad. Now that the weather is heating up again, I’m swapping out our favorite Instant Pot Lentil Soup and Creamy Lentil Soups for salads. 

This easy layered lentil salad in a jar is filled with hearty lentils, sweet tomatoes, crunchy red onion, a zesty lemony mustard vinaigrette, and plenty of greens. This particular recipe makes three jars that are ideal for taking to work or the beach for lunch. 

Our lentil recipes have been some of the most popular on the site, so don’t miss our Lentil Meatlessloaf, Vegan Lentil Meatballs, Lentil Sloppy Joe’s, and Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie

This easy strawberry lemonade is whirled together in the blender. It’s a naturally pink lemonade recipe made with simple ingredients like lemons and strawberries, and sweetened with sugar or honey. 

Two glasses and a pitcher filled with homemade blended strawberry lemonade sit on a table outside.

With a backyard filled with about 10 citrus trees, we are always trying to use them up. So it’s only natural we’ve shared several lemonade recipes here in the past (see our Lavender Lemonade, Blood Orange Lemonade, and Sugar Free Lemonade). And a few wellness elixirs too (Lemon Apple Cider Vinegar Drinks, Orange & Pineapple ACV Shots, Lemony Detox Water, Ginger Shots, etc.). 

This strawberry version of classic homemade lemonade is one of my favorites. Homemade pink strawberry lemonade is the prettiest color and most refreshing bright lemon flavor with little bits of fresh strawberries. 

Unlike many lemonade recipes that use simple syrup, this one comes together quickly in the blender. Check out this post from the Kitchn for a breakdown of all the ways to make lemonade. They actually suggest making blender lemonade with whole lemons, rind and all.

With kids home and constantly asking for a snack, we’ve been doing a bit more healthy food prep. One of the things I’ve started doing for the first time is making big fruit salads. And I’ve noticed the kids are eating much more fruit when it’s already prepped. 

I’m planning to share a few different fruit salads, including a rainbow fruit salad and a tropical fruit salad, but today I’m sharing one that’s perfect for Mother’s Day (or any brunch). This simple citrus fruit salad doesn’t need a dressing, but can be made into an extra special treat by serving with a splash of Champagne or prosecco. We’ll call that a Mimosa Fruit Salad.
