Rosemary Lemon Grilled Chicken
Great recipe I've made more than a dozen times and my family loves this as the foundation of a Mediterranean meal. Our suggestions: 1. Double the marinade, using olive oil instead of butter and eliminating most or all of the lemon zest. Cut chicken breasts or tenders into bite-sized pieces, place in zip-lock bag and pour on 3/4 of the marinade to sit for at least 3 hours. 2. Pour chicken and marinade into skillet and cook for 12-15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. 3. While chicken is cooking, blend remaining 1/4 of marinade with a mixture of fresh veggies cut in bite-sized chunks (green, yellow and red peppers, zucchini, summer squash, red or sweet onion, mushrooms), spread them on a foil-covered pan and broil for 10 minutes, stirring often to keep from burning. Cook until veggies crisp-tender. 4. Serve the chicken/sauce and veggies with brown or wild rice (we love Traders Joe's Brown Rice Medley), pitas, hummus, and a Greek salad for a GREAT Mediterranean meal!!

Asian Coleslaw
This is a great recipe and a refreshing change of pace from regular mayonnaise-based cole slaw. I only had regular green cabbage on hand, so I shredded it with carrots and chopped green onions and then added the dressing. Sprinkling black sesame seeds on top added a nice color contrast and extra Asian flavor. This salad will become a new family favorite.

Fresh Tomato Basil Sauce
Great way to use all those garden fresh tomatoes in the summer months. Seeding the tomatoes loses a lot of natural flavor, so I simply chopped the tomatoes and then added a 6-oz. can of tomato paste when I stirred together the tomatoes and veggies. This gave the sauce a great consistency and flavor. I also added a chopped green pepper to the onion and garlic for additional flavor and nutrition. My family likes pasta sauce with lots of herb flavor, so in addition to the basil and garlic, I added one heaping tablespoon of dried oregano and some thyme. To make a smoother sauce (for picky kids like mine), puree the cooked tomatoes and veggies before adding the tomato paste. This makes the perfect sauce to eat "as is" on pasta, to use as a pizza sauce, or to use as the base for meat-based Italian sauces. This is a great, basic recipe!
