Caramelized Vidalia Onion Dip

As you probably know by now, summer is my favorite time of year. Here in the Hamptons, I spend most of my time at the beach (with Gus of course!), on my little Boston Whaler boat, picking up goods at the farm stands, and cooking with my friends and family. On the coast of the northeast, we appreciate our summers so much after months upon months of bad weather, and we try to squeeze in every drop of fun that we can!

Beach Bites in the Bahamas

This week on Beach Bites, we are traveling farther south to The Bahamas.  Nassau is one of the most popular port towns for cruise ships, and there is plenty to see right there in the harbor, but if you’re willing to go just a bit further, there is so much more to the island.  The food is “off the chain” as they like to say.

New Season of Beach Bites!

I’m so excited that the new season of Beach Bites is here! My first episode is this Thursday, June 7th, and I’m kicking things off on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. It was my first time to the region and I wasn’t sure what to expect.  I had never really thought of Mississippi as a beach destination. Well let me tell you, I LOVED it!

Beastie Burgers

The second I land in Los Angeles, my mouth starts to water in anticipation of the famous In-N-Out Burger.  I love a double-double, animal style (that's code for double beef, double cheese, grilled onions and extra sauce).  I'm not ashamed to admit that there was an occasion that I ate THREE in one sitting.  Definitely didn't feel so hot the next day, but it was so good going down.  Anyhoo, I decided to try to recreate these burgers in my kitchen.  The results were even better than I expected! Definitely, try this at home.

Chicken and Broccoli Twice-Baked Spaghetti Squash

I like to eat, portion control is not an option for me! Ha ha! So, I have to create healthy meals that I love but won't feel guilty about eating. This chicken and broccoli twice-baked spaghetti squash is one of those meals. It's so good, and so filling and so guilt free - spaghetti squash is only 42 calories per cup and it's full of fiber! I also love this because it can be a main dish, or with just a simple omission of chicken, it can be a side dish for a larger meal.

Rao's + Tolerant Red Lentil Pasta

Katie Lee shares one of her favorite one pot meals. Rao's + Tolerant Red Lentil Pasta : My go-to “I don’t feel like cooking either” with Rao’s is to serve it over one of my other favorite products, Tolerant red lentil pasta.  The only ingredient in Tolerant is lentils and each serving boasts 21 grams of protein, 11 grams of fiber, and a full serving of vegetables.
