These aren’t your average chicken tacos — Bobby’s sweet and spicy version is filled with grilled poblanos, barbecued onions and fresh coleslaw. Lean chicken breasts are seasoned with some of his favorites: ancho chili powder, cinnamon, cumin and light brown sugar.
Editor’s Note: If you’re looking to cut down the prep time to make this a weeknight meal, try the following:
1. Buy packaged cabbage-mix that has already been shredded.
2. If you don’t have time to make Bobby’s delicious Fire Roasted Green Chile Guacamole, substitute it with your favorite salsa, especially a tomatillo-based salsa.

The trouble with so-called “ancient grains” is that though they recently have tickled the fancy of restaurant chefs, they remain way under the home cook’s radar.
It’s an experience thing. Or lack of. Most of us aren’t even sure how to cook amaranth, quinoa and spelt, never-mind know how to serve them.
Which is too bad. They can be a delicious, creative and usually inexpensive way of working whole grains into your cooking.
So let me help you over that first hurdle by introducing you to farro, which I consider the easiest to cook and most versatile of the ancient grains.

Paula takes the quintessential lemony summer sip and transforms it into an easy, yet show-stopping layer cake. To a simple boxed cake mix, she adds grated lemon zest, pink lemonade and vanilla.
After the cakes have cooled, Paula spreads a thin layer of butter frosting, made with butter and confectioners’ sugar, between the two cakes. Using an offset spatula, she spreads the remaining frosting over the top and sides of both layers.

What is it about a peach that is so seductive? They look so juicy to me. When I see them in any market, they shout to me, “Hello! Over here. Dig in!”
But how do you pick out a good one?
1. Don’t be seduced by the brilliant red color that covers a large part of the fruit. That will change from variety to variety of peach. It is actually the yellow or white areas where you should seek a rich color. A deep yellow hue tells the story of a good peach.

Bobby takes everyday beef tenderloin and transforms it into a light yet satisfying Asian-inspired summer meal by allowing the steak to marinate in garlic, Thai chile, soy sauce, lime juice and honey. He then slices it up and pairs it with a sweet and tangy papaya salad.
