Pineapple Smoothies
Just 3 ingredients: pineapple chunks, vanilla yogurt, and ice. Quick and yummy!

Pink Lemonade
Turn your lemonade pink with fresh, ripe strawberries.

Pitcher-Perfect Iced Tea
You can use regular, decaffeinated, or herbal tea. Let it steep for 5 to 7 minutes.

Polenta with Peppers and Cheese
Southwestern flavors add flare to this easy favorite.

Raspberry Mustard Dip
You can buy ready-made raspberry mustard, but you won’t find the depth of flavor you get when you mix your own.

Red Beans and Rice
If you have time, make your brown rice from scratch. Use chicken broth instead of water to amp up the flavor. It will take about 45 minutes. In a pinch, instant brown rice is OK.

Red Rosemary Vinegar
To prepare as a gift, strain the vinegar into pretty bottles. Add a fresh sprig of rosemary to each.

Roasted Asparagus
Roast for 15 to 20 minutes (depending on thickness of asparagus), shaking once to turn spears. Pour on balsamic vinegar and serve hot or at room temperature.

Roasted Asparagus and Mushrooms with Rosemary
Roasting really brings out the flavors of this delicious combination.

Roasted Vegetables
Roast carrots, turnips, squash, and garlic for about an hour, stirring once or twice.
