Garlic steak will make Dad's day

Please dad this Father's Day with Garlic Steak and Chili Pepper Potatoes. Garlic has been praised for its many qualities. It's low in calories and when cooked slowly without browning, it develops a mellow and nutlike flavor.

Slam dunks: Three dips for crudités

No matter how beguiling and colorful my salad dreams may be, when the hectic swirl of weeknight dinner begins, I routinely ditch them for plain greens tossed with lemon juice and olive oil. Adding a grated garlic clove to the dressing is the height of my after-work ambitions.

Getting giddy over Bouchaine's 2014 Napa Pinot Noir

Sipping Bouchaine's 2014 Napa Pinot Noir turns my palate giddy. Lots of blueberry and tart cherry notes make for an exceptionally easy pairing with a cracker topped with double cream brie, sour cherry spread and a sprig of thyme. Want to sip a glass and munch on a few pistachios? Super. The grilled chicken thighs and smashed potatoes were also a heavenly accompaniment. There aren't many $19.99 pinots that are sustainably farmed with hit-it-out-of-the-park deliciousness. Several visits to the winery in Carneros, Calif., have made me a fan for life. A must stop when in California wine country.
