I like to have popcorn for a healthy snack. I use an air popper to save calories.

As a snack, I love white bean dip made with olive oil and herbs. I use Stacy's Pita Chips to scoop it and it's highly addictive.

on these 100 degree days,we love watermelon for a summer dinner. when choosing from our pantry, we often have marinated ravioli: cook some ravioli (any type cheesey filling), toss with olive oil, white pepper, maybe some fresh parsley or shredded basil, a bit of garlic, and parmesan of we have it on hand. so delish warm or cold.

A light and easy supper is a salad made with bulgar wheat, tomatoes - both fresh and sun-dried - cucumbers, scallions, kalamata olives and feta. I use broth (chicken or veg)instead of water for the bulgar. For the dressing whisk together some olive oil, fresh lemon juice and fresh chopped basil. And, if I want to make it a little more substantial, I throw in some chopped chicken breast. Then I toss it in the fridge and let it cool until I'm ready to serve it. I can make it in the morning when it's [relatively] cool and not have to bother with dinner when I get home from work. Perfection!

Tomatoes and fresh herbs with a bit of balsamic vinegar! But, I really like to make fresh tomato juice and have it for a great thirst quencher or part of a meal.

We enjoy a bean dip made with great northern beans flavored with olive oil, onion powder, a splash of vinegar and a dash of cayenne pureed in the food processor with mini ricecakes (also gluten-free) or tortilla chips.

My favorite summer recipe is homemade margarita pizza with a wheat crust, sauce of choice (optional because if you slice the tomatoes thick enough you really don't need one), fresh heirloom tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella. Yum!!

My pantry is full of vegan ingredients and I love trying new recipes or just throwing things together that sound good (some are keepers, others I won't make again)! I always have canned garbanzo beans on hand to whip up different types of hummus. I also have canned tomatoes and several different types of legumes, and just found a recipe for "3-Bean Soup", which was delicious! I am also addicted to artesan-type vegan breads, and I will toast or grill bread and spread with vegan "butter" for a quick, satisfying snack or meal.

My favorite summer pantry go to dish that I love to make is to add black beans, fresh or canned corn, diced fresh or canned tomatoes to fresh chopped bell peppers, onions and garlic that have been saute'd. I will then add chicken broth and brown rice and season with kosher salt, fresh ground pepper, dried cumin, mexican oregano, paprika and cayenne pepper....delish!!! For heartier fare, brown ground beef, chicken or turkey with the onion mixture. Sweet treats are oatmeal and apricot bars made with dried apricots and apricot jam. Energizing and yummy!
