9 Crowd-Pleasing Desserts for Your Memorial Day Party

Berry Tart

When it comes to warm weather desserts, there are a few very key considerations:

1. You don’t want something that’s going to get gooey or wilt in some way—it can be surprisingly warm on Memorial Day weekend!

2. You want something that’s easily portable, so fancy things that are perishable, delicate or have elaborate toppings are probably out of the question, too.

3. All that, and it’s got to be delicious and eye-catching, too — right?!

Citrus-Brined Grilled Pork Chops

Grilling Pork Chops

Boneless pork chops seem to be a popular grilling option during summer because they are always available and are easy to season and toss on a hot fire.

But they also tend to dry out quickly and are easy to overcook.

Meal Plan for May Week 4

Meal Plan for May Week 4

This month, Megan Gordon is back with us sharing her weekly meal plans! Megan is a writer and recipe developer living in Seattle, WA, the author of Whole Grain Mornings, and mom to a 2-year-old. Please welcome Megan!

Strawberry-Rhubarb Crumble Bars

Crumble Bars with Rhubarb and Strawberry

The appearance of rhubarb at the market is the first sign of spring for me! I look forward to seeing bright red stalks of this celery look-alike every year—it’s one of my favorite ingredients.

Perhaps I love the fleeting nature of the produce, available for a few short months (or less, depending on the season or where you live). Or maybe it’s the vibrant red color of the stalks, which I just adore.

Either way, I can’t wait to get my hands on it, and when it finally shows up, I buy it by the bagful.

Meal Plan for May Week 3

This month, Megan Gordon is back with us sharing her weekly meal plans! Megan is a writer and recipe developer living in Seattle, WA, the author of Whole Grain Mornings, and mom to a 2-year-old. Please welcome Megan!

This week is all about simplicity!

I’ll be out of the house for a handful of evenings this week teaching cooking classes, so I want to plan to have a few meals all set and ready for my husband to assemble while I’m gone. (He cooks too, for the record, but is much more of an impromptu ‘what’s in the cupboard’ kind of cook!)
