Instagram alert: Social media’s current food-nerd obsession is the avocado bun. What’s that, you ask? Why, it’s precisely what it sounds like: an entire ripe-and-ready avocado, halved and used as a sesame-seed-topped burger bun, with a cheeseburger, onion, tomato, pickles, lettuce and a “secret sauce” tucked between its gorgeous (yet mushy) twin mounds of green.

Though the weather outside is steamy, you needn’t wait for the cooler months to make a pot of chili. The secret to enjoying this hearty bowl in the summer is opting for lighter, fresher ingredients than the usual bases of chicken and beef. By opting for a veggie-packed version, you get the same depth of flavor but with a seasonal feel. Read more

Who else remembers the sheer unadulterated pleasure of scoring a treat from the ice cream truck? How about the excitement upon first hearing the telltale jingle in the distance, the race to form a line, and the dizzying menu of seemingly endless choices plastered on the door? Snow cones, firecrackers, ice cream-cookie sandwiches … the list went on and on. The treats weren’t gourmet; they weren’t sourced from organic, free-range dairy. But they sure hit the spot. Every. Single. Time. Even if its been years since you last tasted or even thought about your favorite flavor from yesteryear, the mere crinkle of an ice pop wrapper is likely to transport you back to simpler, more-carefree days. Read on to find out which of the classics made our all-time favorites list.

Odds are, you believe a burger is not nearly complete without a good slice of dill pickle, or you just can’t help but devour pickle spears straight from the jar, one by one until they disappear. Hey, maybe you’re even one of those people who slather their pickles in peanut butter (yes, that’s a thing). Not only does the practice of real-deal pickling extend summer produce longer, but submerging veggies in a saltwater or vinegar-based brine imparts a distinctively tangy and addictive flavor. And there’s so much more to the world of pickling than cucumbers. In fact, the practice of pickling can extend to all kinds of summer produce.
If you always have a jar of pickled jalapenos on hand for topping chili, tacos, sandwiches and more, then perhaps you should try your hand at making your own Easy Pickled Jalapenos (pictured above). While the store-bought variety are often limp and soft, these pickled peppers retain their crispness, since the hot brine is poured over them, rather than the jalapenos being boiled in it.

The key to this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week is a standout mojo sauce, a spicy and tangy mix commonly made with vinegar, oranges, garlic and olive oil; Tyler Florence uses it to marinate the flank steak in this top-rated recipe. After grilling the meat until it’s tender and juicy, Tyler stacks slices of the beef on warmed corn tortillas with classic taco fixings, including lettuce and Jack cheese, plus an easy pico de gallo for a simple, crowd-pleasing dish.
