Eaten without the skin, duck breasts are as lean as white meat chicken or turkey.
Duck is one of my favorite foods, roasted, braised, the legs confitted, the wings fried, the breasts grilled like a steak. It's just plain scrumptious.
Many people like the idea of cooking with whole grains — They are so healthful! — but refrain from actually plunging in because so many of them are unfamiliar.
Coconut-Lemonade, Orange-Banana-Cinnamon and Strawberry-Ginger-Limeade slushies offer a fruity hot-weather treat.
Slushies have taken on a surprisingly critical role in my family's summer. And it's my 7-year-old's fault.
This fruit salad from Arthur Potts Dawson's new cookbook, 'Eat Your Vegetables,' pairs cooling cucumber and refreshing watermelon and mango with spicy red and green chilies.
Crisp blueberry shortcakes are prepared with three layers of baked phyllo dough cut into squares.
Great taste often comes down to contrast.
Sara Moulton took a tip from her chef friend and used pureed corn to achieve a silky richness without any additional fat in this spicy creamed corn recipe. Caramelized onions add great depth of flavor, while the chili's heat and lime juice's acidity balance the sweetness of the corn.
There are few foods as simple, delicious and complete as fresh seasonal corn on the cob. When it's really fresh, I'll even eat it raw. No boiling, no butter, no salt. It's perfectly sweet and tender right off the stalk.
Sara Moulton is shown on the set of her PBS show, 'Sara's Weeknight Meals.'
Assembled entirely the night before, this warm and satisfying breakfast casserole has all the makings of a great start to the day — whole-grains, lean protein, even some fruit.
