Spicy Grilled Chicken Tacos

We have a family motto and it is this: Everything goes better in a tortilla.

Any and every kind of leftover can go inside a warm tortilla, usually with a healthy dose of pickled jalapenos. I can always sniff out a late-night snacker when the aroma of tortillas heating in a hot pan on the stove comes wafting through the house.

Today's tacos are more purposeful – a deliberate meal instead of a secretive midnight snack!

Fudgy Chocolate Brownies

My mother often made these brownies on the spur of the moment. She'd see a bunch of kids in the house, and an hour later, she'd offer all of us a treat. "Let's have a bite of brownie!" she would announce, and proceed to hand out small, warm squares.

I have no doubt that this recipe came from the back of a box at some point, but I only have the small index card she wrote in her beautiful penmanship. It's a simple formula: chocolate, butter, sugar, eggs, and flour, all stirred together in one pot.

Baked Vegetable and Cream Cheese Wontons

Making dumplings is a big tradition in my family. When I was young, my mother would wake me up early on Sunday mornings to make dumplings with her and my grandmother. We would spend an hour or two filling and shaping dumplings, and then cook them for brunch for the rest of the family.

It was a lot of work, but I always got first dibs on the freshly made dumplings!

Now that I live away from my family, I still try to keep that weekend dumpling-making tradition alive.

Chia Pudding with Blueberries and Almonds

Have you ever tried chia seeds? They're nutrient dense, fiber rich tiny seeds of the chia plant that expand when you soak them in liquid to something like tapioca, but with really small pearls.

You can add them to smoothies for extra protein and fiber, or let them soak for a while and plump up to make an easy dairy-free pudding.

Greek Lamb Burgers with Tzatziki Sauce

Up your burger game and be the hero of your next barbecue with Greek lamb burgers and homemade tzatziki!

I season these lamb burgers with some of Greece's most-loved flavors – like garlic, dried lemon peel, and oregano – before grilling them up and serving them on toasted buns.

I like to set out a little buffet of Greek-inspired toppings near the grill for everyone to help themselves. Some of my favorites are fresh tomatoes, lettuce, feta, red onion, and of course, that tzatziki.

Potato and Broccoli Curry

Years ago, when I asked my friend Arthi for her favorite curry recipe, she gave me this sauce, which she adjusted to make what I call her "supermarket" version. That meant I could grab the ingredients at my local market without a special trip to her Indian grocery.

I love this sauce! It's rich, but there's no cream. It's spicy, but not too hot. When it's done cooking, you want to eat it with a spoon.

Cooking Advice From Mom

Updated from the archives with new photos, first posted in 2008 when Elise's mom was 73, she's now 82. Happy Mother's Day!

Years ago I asked to write about what I've learned from my mother about cooking. Since at the time I was living with my parents and cooking with my mom almost every day, this wasn't a difficult exercise. I'm still learning from her, though now occasionally she learns something from me too. ;-)

My mother is one of those intuitive cooks in the kitchen. Having raised six kids, she doesn't follow recipes anymore. If you watch her while she cooks, the timing just appears to happen seamlessly.

Whereas I'm best at making one dish at a time, mom can coordinate a whole meal for 8—a main course protein, one or two veggie sides, a starch, and a salad—without getting remotely flustered.

How to Make Rice Without a Recipe

If all you need is a plain bowl of rice to serve with dinner, this is the easiest, most foolproof method that I know.

You don't need measuring cups, a recipe, or even a specific water-to-rice ratio — just cover the rice with a few inches of water, bring it to a boil, then simmer until the rice is tender. Drain the rice, return it to the pot, and let it steam in its own residual heat until you're ready to serve.

Super easy, right? It's nothing fancy, but I promise that it gets the job done.
