With the 4th of July just around the corner, I’ve got a brand new recipe for you that would be the perfect addition to your holiday barbecue! Coleslaw is obviously a staple this time of year, but how about switching it up with a Green Apple Cucumber version instead of typical cabbage?
I’m so excited to be offering you an AWESOME giveaway today. Kamikoto knives are designed for chefs and serious home cooks, and I used one when chopping up a large eggplant for my new Cheesy Eggplant Bake recipe (which I am also sharing below).
This Green Goddess Chicken Salad recipe is from my new cookbook, Kitchen Matters, and is a delicious, more nutritious twist on a classic chicken salad. I start with poached chicken, which is super easy to make and a very healthful way to cook chicken.

Gluten-free certainly is a buzzword these days, but there are sooo many gluten-free products out there that are made of processed junk. Not these cookies!
I have to say, I might be the minority here, but I don’t like the Instant Pot! I honestly went into this with an open mind and have used it several times for all different types of recipes to really get a good feel for what it can do.
This easy one-pot chowder is quick enough for a weeknight dinner but tastes like it came from a fancy restaurant. Real food doesn’t have to be complicated!
The next time you go to a friend’s house, offer to bring an appetizer and make this Cheesy Chicken Dip! Warm dips are always a crowd pleaser, and this one is no exception.
