Tuna Checkerboard Sandwiches for Back to School Lunches

It’s so fun to mix and match different types of bread to jazz up the kids’ sandwiches. This recipe for Tuna Checkerboard Sandwich gives regular tuna a twist using lemon juice and white wine vinegar instead of mayonnaise. It is healthier, light and a great new way to get the kids to eat more tuna. This recipe is in my latest cookbook, “400 Best Sandwiches: From Classics & Burgers to Wraps & Condiments” published by Robert Rose, Inc.

Studio B and Kid’s Culinary Camp This Summer in Alys Beach, Florida

Things have been so busy lately, and I am so excited about this summer! My kids are out of school, and they are so happy about that. Plus, I get the wonderful opportunity to teach kid’s culinary camps in the incredible location at Alys Beach Florida at Studio B. Colleen Duffley, a photographer of 25 years, had a “plan B” to create a studio that brings the best creative talent in food, photography, fashion, art, design, beauty, music and literature. There will be seminars, classes and inspirational lectures by some of the world’s most creative people. Just a few of the foodies are Sarah Foster, Emeril Lagassee, Michael Chiarello and Scott Peacock. Check out the site’s “B List” for more information on who’s coming to Studio B. See my classes in late June/early July.

Low Budget Dinner: Sausage Mushroom Pizza

img_1593
Instead of using pizza crust, why not try pita bread? This recipe is great topped with Italian sausage, green peppers and mushrooms, but feel free to use your own favorite toppings. These pizzas can also be grilled easily. Grill over medium heat 7 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is lightly browned. Not only are these pizzas delicious, but they are economical and child-friendly.
