Thank you for all the well wishes and gracious comments on my last post.  I am really excited to be working on this cookbook, although I will have a super busy summer.  I have a great team in place to help me shoot the recipes for the book this week.  We actually just started and I will likely not be cooking much this week since we eat whatever I’ve made on the set.  But I will never forget that you are still looking for inspiration for your meal plans this week!  Here are some lovely recipes to help you out:

Monday: Roasted vegetable lasagna, green salad

Tuesday: Green goddess salad with grilled fish

Wednesday: Gazpacho with avocado, corn and zucchini frittata

Thursday: Risotto-stuffed tomatoesgrilled chicken paillard with arugula

FridayCorn and Edamame Succotash with turkey bacon

Saturday lunchCalifornia nicoise salad

Sunday: NY Times grilled skirt steak with herbs, green salad with homemade ranch dressing, tomatoes, cucumbers, fresh corn and avocado


Here’s what you can do ahead of time if you like:


Roast vegetables for lasagna

Make green goddess dressing


Make gazpacho and refrigerate

Prep corn and zucchini for frittata


Hard-boil eggs for nicoise salad

Make herb paste for skirt steak and marinate overnight, if desired

Make ranch dressing


Here is a link to all of my dinner planners.
