- 1 refrigerated pie crust (9-inch)
- 3 fresh peaches, pitted and sliced
- ¼ cup fresh blueberries
- ¼ cup fresh blackberries
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 egg, beaten
- Fresh mint for garnish
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Unfold pie crust on a baking sheet or baking stone. Slightly roll out edges.
- In a large mixing bowl, blend the fruit with cornstarch, 1 tablespoon sugar, and cinnamon. Pour mixture into the middle of the pie crust, leaving a 2-inch border. Fold up the border over the edge of the fruit and pinch the pleats. Brush the egg wash onto the pie crust and sprinkle remaining sugar on top of crust and fruit.

This recipe was inspired by Giada De Laurentiis, one of my food heroes on Food Network. I started making this awesome dish a few years ago. Most Thai restaurants serve this as a starter, called “larb,” but I find that it’s super healthy as a main dish also — think lettuce wraps from Cheesecake Factory, only way better! These babies are full of flavor and make great leftovers. Aromatic mint is the key ingredient here. You can also substitute the turkey for pork or beef. I prefer ground turkey or chicken to keep it low-cal. Forever watching my girlish figure!
- ¼ cup fresh lime juice (from about 4 limes)
- 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from 1 large lemon)
- 2 tablespoons fish sauce
- 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- ½ medium red onion, diced
- 3 small shallots, thinly sliced
- 1 4-inch piece lemongrass, minced
- 1 Thai chile pepper or serrano chile, stemmed and thinly sliced
- 1 small can water chestnuts, chopped
- 1 pound ground turkey
- ½ cup chopped fresh mint leaves
- ¼ cup fresh basil or Thai basil
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1 head butter lettuce or savoy cabbage (light green leaves only), leaves separated
- Chopped peanuts
- Optional: sticky white or brown rice, for serving
- Lime wedges
- Make the dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, lemon juice, fish sauce, soy sauce, and honey. Set aside.
- For the filling: In a large skillet or wok, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion, shallots, lemongrass, chile pepper, and water chestnuts. Cook about 5 minutes until fragrant. Add the ground turkey, breaking it up with the back of a wooden spoon or spatula. Cook until the meat and vegetables are cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add the dressing to the pan and cook 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the mint and basil. Season with salt and pepper if needed.
- Forming a cup with the lettuce leaves, place a spoonful of the turkey mixture into a lettuce cup and top with chopped peanuts and extra basil. Squeeze lime juice over lettuce cups. Serve with sticky rice, if desired.

Having lived in Gothenburg, Sweden for a few years definitely had its advantages. The freshest seafood from Sweden’s west coast supplied the entire country! One of my favorites to prepare was (and still is) the Norwegian salmon. It’s fatty and rich with flavor! I cooked this salmon at least twice a week, experimenting with different recipes. Here’s one of my go-to recipes. It’s incredibly simple and incredibly good! You don’t have to use Norwegian salmon, any salmon will do. I just think a fattier salmon is best (don’t worry, it’s the “good” omega fat). If you shop at Whole Foods they always have the Norwegian salmon on hand. Just ask the fish monger!

- 1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder

- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets

Heat a large heavy skillet with 1 tablespoon of oil on medium high to high heat. Place fish skin side down in pan. Cook for 4 minutes until nicely seared. Turn fish over and cook another 2 to 3 minutes until fish is light pink. Garnish with herbs and lemon wedges on the side. Serve with rice if desired.
