Grilled Vegetable and Black Bean Tacos

This is the perfect time of year to make these easy grilled tacos–just grab what looks good from your garden or Farmers’ Market, grill it up, toss it together, and fill your tortillas.  I promise no one will miss the meat.

Grilled Fish with Fresh Blueberry Salsa

This is a perfect summer dish: simple, light, and lots of fresh flavors.  You can use any kind of firm fish that will hold up to the grill–salmon, ono, swordfish, etc.  Here I have used mahi mahi. To grill the fish, just rub it with a little olive oil, sprinkle with salt and white pepper, […]
