"It can be a tasty appetizer, or make it a meal with rice and a salad." —Amy Mitchell, Managing Editor
- Recipe: Honey Shrimp Skewers
"This is great for a special occasion. It's easy, but so impressive! I've tried it with shrimp too, and it's just as good."
—Amy Mitchell, Managing Editor
"This casserole is the ultimate comfort food. My mom used to make tuna casserole when I was growing up, and I loved it. This new twist is even more delicious--the secret is the fresh, zippy lemon zest." —Maria RiCapito, Executive Editor
- Recipe: Lemony Tuna Noodle Casserole
"This pizza couldn't get much easier to make, and it's a fun interpretation of the classic smoked salmon bagel with cream cheese." —Holly Goff, Production Manager
- Recipe: Grilled Smoked Salmon Pizza
"This easy-to-assemble salad combines my summer favorites--flavorful watermelon, fresh herbs, and juicy heirloom tomatoes. The sweet and tangy combination is unexpected, but perfect." —Holly Goff, Production Manager
"Talk about an easy--and fun--summer drink recipe! I love the girly pink color and sweet coconut taste. One sip, and I'm transported from my Birmingham backyard to the Bahamas. And to make the drink "skinny" I use Crystal Light raspberry lemonade in place of frozen juice for fewer calories."
—Jacquelyne Froeber, Travel Editor
- Recipe: Pink Bikini
"This margarita recipe is a breeze to put together before a party--and who doesn't love a fiesta where your guests don't have to yell over a blender the whole time? Instead of limes, garnish each glass with mini-watermelon slices and candy-colored salt for the rim!" —Caitlin Miller, Copy/Production Assistant
- Recipe: Margarita de Sandia
"I love the crisp texture of the panko paired with the creamy avocado. It's important to find barely ripe avocados--the really soft ones will fall apart when frying." —Julia Rutland, Senior Food Editor
- Recipe: Avocado Fries
"I made the Devil's Chicken Thighs for my family and there wasn't a crumb left. The chicken is so juicy with these buttery crumbs on top, resting on a bed of braised leeks." —Lydia Somerville, Contributing Editor
