Seared Steak with Arugula and Spinach
As summer approaches, we want easy, satisfying meals with bold flavor. Steak with salad is a classic favorite. So why not combine the two in one dish?
Add a tasty starter and a luscious dessert, and you have a terrific company meal. Oh, and don’t forget to add a nice bottle of red to your shopping list.
Your guests are worth it.

Bacon Jam with Jalapeño
This bacon jam (you could also call it relish or chutney) makes a great addition to morning biscuits or toast. But it’s also terrific atop a cracker (preferably with a bed of cream cheese or pimento cheese) as a canapé.
Or use it on about anything you can imagine. If you can think of it, it’ll probably be good.
Because bacon. One of our favorite food groups.

Pasta al Limone with Artichoke Hearts
Not up for cream sauce in hot weather? We hear you. That’s why we’ve tweaked the classic recipe for Pasta al Limone (Pasta with Lemon) to create a lighter dish. Our version has all the flavor but none of the heavy stuff.
We’ve added artichoke hearts because they pair beautifully with lemon. The result is a dish that’s quick and easy enough for weeknight dinner. But good enough to serve weekend company.
Time to send out the invitations.

The Knickerbocker Cocktail
Amber rum, lime juice, and sweetener (in the form of raspberry syrup)? Sounds a lot like a raspberry daiquiri to us. Add a dash of orange curaçao, and you’ve got the Knickerbocker.
It’s one of the older cocktails on record, dating back at least to the 1860s.
And still good after all these years.
