Summer time is for grilling —don't let your salad feel left out. Romaine, raddichio and leeks get kissed by the grill then topped with crunchy raw fennel and a gorgeously creamy dijon parmigianno vinaigrette. —Amanda Shulman

The kitchen is my haven and feeding people is my activity of choice. Butter is as crucial to my life as air, and if you put avocado or bacon on anything and put it in my vicinity, consider it gone. Check out my recipes and food adventures on stayhungree.com.
