Creamy Potato Salad

Tossing potatoes with a little good vinegar while they are still warm infuses them with flavor. Capers, gherkins and a touch of anchovy give this old-fashioned salad a piquant finish, while red bell pepper and celery give it an appealing crunch.

Cheese-Stuffed Grilled Peppers

We love this snack for backyard barbecues. Try using all types of medium-sized peppers: As the peppers blister, the cheese mixture tucked inside turns warm and gooey.

Barbecue-Fried Baby Backs

Myron Mixon's baby back ribs are so addictive, you may have to give up the smoked kind altogether.

BBQ Chicken Tenders

These crispy chicken “wings,” made with boneless, skinless chicken breast tenders, stay crispy with only a light coating of oil—no deep-frying.

Minted Watermelon Popsicles

These popsicles are a great fat-free snack, made with lots of naturally sweet watermelon and only a little sugar. They can be frozen in special popsicle molds or in standard ice cube trays!
