There is nothing wrong with breakfast for dinner — it switches up your normal routine and it’ll put a smile on your family’s faces. While everyone loves eggs, pancakes, waffles and bacon, it’s time to try something new.
Frittata’s are like a grown-up version of scrambled eggs with cheese. Giada’s version is filled with asparagus and tomato and dotted with melted fontina cheese. Since all the ingredients are mixed together, it’s also a great time to incorporate vegetables into everyone’s diets. After trying this recipe, you’ll be making breakfast for dinner more often.

Last week on Food Network’s Facebook page, readers “Asked the Editor” about cold soups. Cold soups are refreshing and they also keep your kitchens cool in the summer heat, but how many times can a person slurp gazpacho? Our fans wanted something different — something that highlighted the season’s fresh produce, but more creative than the classic blended tomato soup. After the jump, four of Food Network’s most popular cold soup recipes, including Giada’s Mixed Berry Soup for dessert.

Ah, the scallop. Sizing in just larger than a golf ball, the sea scallop is delicate and tender, yet meaty in texture. These two-bite wonders are full of flavor and freshness and often cook up in mere minutes. Though bay scallops (smaller and far more fragile than their ocean counterparts) also exist, our recipes below use only sea scallops, which can easily withstand robust additions of sauces and glazes as well as being and grilled. Like most seafood, scallops can overcook and become chewy extremely quickly, so keep one eye on them while preparing.
For a healthy dinner any night of the week, try Food Network Magazine’s protein-packed recipe for Scallops With Citrus and Quinoa (pictured above). Topped with the juices of fresh oranges and tangerines, these scallops have an enviable golden sugar crust. Be sure to dry the scallops well before searing to ensure a crispy coating.

Rule No. 1 about spicy ingredients: You don’t need to love spicy foods to love what spicy ingredients can do for the foods you do love.
That’s because foods such as chili peppers and hot sauces can do way more than simply add mouth-searing heat. Adding just a touch will heighten the other flavors of a dish without adding noticeable spiciness.
For example, whip up your favorite mac and cheese. Now stir in just a drop or two of hot sauce. Taste. It won’t be spicy, but it will be better.
Why am I telling you this? Because I want you to try a seriously spicy ingredient and don’t want you to be scared off by the heat.

I love that the strawberry plant is a member of the rose family. There are so many things you can do with strawberries during the season, both sweet and savory. If you have a few strawberries in the back of the fridge, try boiling them with sugar and a splash of sherry vinegar to make jam for toast or a glaze for duck breasts or pork loins. You can also purée them in the blender — mix with sugar, lime juice and some chilled seltzer water for a refreshing summer spritzer. Below is a simple recipe I like making when I get home from work with some really great strawberries.
