BBQ Corn

Rating: Unrated
Work that smoker magic on corn on cob. Be sure to get the corn before the produce person trims off some of the outer husks. The corn must be completely covered by the husk. Use peeled back husks for handles when eating. This recipe multiplies well, and can be used to make corn for a crowd. You will need bagged ice for this recipe to keep the corn cold.

Moroccan Mashed Potatoes

Rating: Unrated
These creamy Middle Eastern-style potatoes are flavored with turmeric and use olive oil rather than butter. They are great alone, and for fillings in puff pastries. Amounts of salt, pepper, and other spices may be adjusted to taste.

Easy Lima Beans

Rating: Unrated
Baby lima beans are steamed in chicken broth. This is a very tasty lima bean recipe that is also low in fat.

White Beans and Peppers

Rating: Unrated
Any sweet pepper will work in this side dish, but I love the delicate spiciness of the long, pointy gypsy pepper. I use organic beans, and serve alongside a veggie burger.

Gingery Carrot Salad

A refreshing change of pace. I am always looking for salads that get better when they are in the fridge for a few days.

Stir-Fried Mushrooms with Baby Corn

Rating: Unrated
Here is a Thai vegetable side dish with plenty of Chinese influences. Utilize whatever mushrooms are in season, such as straw, button, het kone or shiitake mushrooms.

Air Fryer French Fries

Rating: Unrated
Since I missed the whole Instant Pot® train, I had to make at least one air fryer recipe while they're still hot. And it doesn't get more classic than French fries; the generally accepted technique is pretty, dare I say, airtight, at this point, but I do have one extra trick in store! Finally, dip them in honey mustard, spicy ketchup, garlic aioli, or all 3 mixed together, like I did.
