Cooking with the Moms
Does your family eat two seafood meals a week? That's the recommendation from the American Heart Association yet getting more fish on the table can be a challenge for many families. Seafood is rich in lean protein, omega-3 fats, and nutrients like selenium and vitamin D, and it's delicious...depending on how you prepare it! On this week's show, we share three recipes guaranteed to appeal to families: Almond-Crusted Tilapia, Shrimp, Zucchini & Corn Pancakes and Crispy Shrimp with Garlicky Sauteed Spinach.

Boston's bustling City Hall Plaza was recently turned into a mini oasis: Picture lemon groves, a pergola surrounded by a mini field of sunflowers, vanilla beans hanging from orchids, and a mint and chocolate relaxation station. On today's show, we dish all about the "Back to Nature" event and share two recipes. The first is for homemade pesto made with fresh basil, mint and lemon zest...and the second for a cold cantaloupe soup featuring fresh mint, lemon, and vanilla bean.

Tomatoes are at their peak in New England right now, which means endless good eats as far as we're concerned. Janice's husband, Don, has a green thumb that just won't quit, and his backyard garden is brimming right now with the sweetest, juiciest tomatoes you've ever seen. As for Liz's garden, well, let's just say she's shelling out hard cash for her tomatoes this summer! During this week’s show, we serve up a new recipe creation for an Open-Faced PB & Tomato Sandwich (yes, it sounds weird, but it is soooo good), take you behind the scenes to Pumpkin Pond Farm on Nantucket where Liz sampled just-picked tomatoes, still warm from the sun, and share lots of fresh, new ideas for preparing tomatoes, inspired by our Twitter friends and Facebook fans.
