Cooking with Chef Kathy


HOW TO: Grill Pizza on the BBQ

Pizza on the grill … It doesn't have to be round and it can be fun to have individual pizzas for each person to choose what to put on theirs.

Honey & Strawberry Panzanella Salad

A fresh twist on a panzanella salad with strawberries, honey goat cheese, basil, croutons and a balsamic drizzle.

Fresh strawberries replace the tomatoes in my version of a panzanella salad. Balsamic vinegar brightens the strawberries and enhances their sweet flavor. If you have yet to try vinegar and berries, you are going to fall in love.

The Best Macaroni Salad Ever

The Best Macaroni Salad Ever 

Mexican Corn on the Cob

Just simply throw it in the oven, roast it for about 45 min-1 hour in their husks, and then slather on that butter before sprinkling on the rest of the toppings. 

This is the best way to serve corn on the cob, brushed with melted butter and sprinkled with chili powder, cotija cheese and lime juice!

Two Peas and Their Pod Greek Tortellini Salad

1 (20 ounce) package refrigerated cheese tortellini
1 1/2 cups grape tomatoes, cut in half
1 large cucumber, chopped
