I love the flavors of sesame and ginger with any green vegetable. I was looking for a cool make-ahead dish for a weekend dinner when I came across a recipe for sesame snow pea slaw; I adapted it for spring green peas, and added halved cherry tomatos for the lovely contrast of the red against the springy green and the white of the crumbled cheese. Sure do wish peas would hurry up down here... —Kayb

I'm a business professional who learned to cook early on, and have expanded my tastes and my skills as I've traveled and been exposed to new cuisines and new dishes. I love fresh vegetables, any kind of protein on the grill, and breakfasts that involve fried eggs with runny yolks. My recipes tend toward the simple and the Southern, with bits of Asia or the Mediterranean or Mexico thrown in here and there. And a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on a float in the lake, as pictured, is a pretty fine lunch!
