Caprese  Corn Salad

When it comes to grilling season, I’m all about the side dishes. Sure, I love a good grilled piece of meat—who doesn’t? But the side dishes are really my favorite. I was born and raised in Iowa, so I have a soft spot in my heart for corn this time of year.

The best way to cap a sunny summer day is with a scrumptious summer meal. And arguably the best place to prepare this summer meal is on the grill.

On warm Friday evenings in the summer, I love enjoying a glass of wine on the patio with a couple of appetizers. Of course, I don’t want anything too fussy, and this Roasted Tomato with Burrata appetizer is so, so easy.

I’m not sure about you, but in the heat of summer, the last thing I want to do is spend hours in the kitchen, bent over a hot stove to prepare a meal. For me, exploring new and complex recipes is hobby for winter, not summer.

Growing Green

Some people naturally have a green thumb—like Edina resident Mark Campbell. He realized his passion early on.

The flavor combination of lemons and poppy seeds is so bright and cheery; they beautifully complement the bright and sunny weather of springtime. One of my favorite ways to combine these flavors is in mini muffins, a delicious addition to any spring breakfast or brunch.
