This Rhubarb Custard Pie is a favorite family pie recipe that we have been making for many years!
For some reason we like it better than when it is combined with strawberries or other fruits. The custard takes away some of the tartness but still leaves the rhubarb taste.
Did you know this about rhubarb?
Rhubarb is usually considered a vegetable. In the United States, however, a New York court decided in 1947 that since it was used in the United States as a fruit, it counted as a fruit for the purposes of regulations and duties.

Did you know that ginger and turmeric are two powerful spices that have been used widely throughout history for both culinary and medical purposes? Together they make a very warming, healthy tea!
Using these two spices in recipes provides a way to season a variety of foods without adding sodium or fat. As supplements, ginger has been frequently used in traditional and herbal medicines. Turmeric has long been used to treat various physical ailments.
Although they are used in many different types of cuisines for their spice and flavor, these spices may also provide a number of health benefits.
Health benefits of ginger turmeric tea may include:
5) Helps remedy diseases of the digestive tract
6) Prevents oxidation of cholesterol
7) Reduces the risks of heart diseases
8) Prevents deterioration of mental performance
9) Improves intestinal flora
10) Gets rid of the common cold

With their sweet, tart flavors and crisp, juicy bite, it's no wonder that apples are a star ingredient in classic dishes like pies and tarts.

Corn is still in abundance in the produce section of the grocery store, but its season is waning. Although it wasn't the main ingredient for this taco salad with chicken, it was the star. By grilling it on the cob and slightly charring it, the flavor popped and was everything you hope for when you bite into that first corn of the summer season. This is a hearty salad and is terrific for a simple weeknight meal.
Visit any Farmer’s Market (or your own garden) this time of year, and you will see an abundance of zucchini.
Try this delicious, easy zucchini chip recipe for a simple summer side dish.
We definitely recommend making more than you are anticipating that you need because they are just so tasty! And, they do shrink a little when baked.

Summer conjures up memories of cookouts and gatherings with family and friends. The last "official" weekend of the summer is no different. If you are entertaining this weekend, you might want to try a new burger to place on your grill. These Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers are moist and full of flavor and a yummy alternative to the regular beef burger. A simple Tzatziki Sauce will send these over the top.
A great accompaniment to this burger is a simple skillet potato and vegetable dish. Dice potatoes in 1/2" pieces and brown in a cast iron skillet for 10 minutes. Add diced red pepper, cooked corn (either off the cob or frozen), and red onion. Cook for an additional 5-8 minutes until potatoes are tender. Top with cooked, crumbled bacon.
As evenings begin to cool down, I tend to search for dinner ideas that don't involve the grill but aren't the heavy casserole-type of comfort food that I seek out in winter. This dish was the perfect compromise. Make it vegetarian by adding a package of Chipotle Black Bean Crumbles instead of the ground beef. Served with a side salad this makes a simple weeknight meal.
