Marinate your chicken in fresh lime juice, lime zest, olive oil, honey, chopped cilantro, garlic, salt, and black pepper. Grill the chicken and then top with an avocado salsa made with avocados, tomatoes, red onion, garlic, and lime juice.
Toss together sweet corn, cherry tomatoes, black beans, avocados, red onion, and cilantro for a delicious summer salad. Dress this salad with olive oil, lemon juice, cumin, kosher salt, and ground black pepper. This dish can be served on its own or with your favorite brand of tortilla chips.
These slow cooker Boston baked beans take a lot of work, but they’re worth it! Soak a pound of navy beans in water for eight hours before mixing the rest of the ingredients (baking soda, bay leaves, thick sliced bacon, onion, molasses, dark brown sugar, boiling water, maple syrup, dijon mustard, cider vinegar, salt, and pepper) in the slow cooker. You’ll need to cook these beans on low for about ten hours. Plan on starting on these beans at least a day ahead of time.
This no-bake strawberry cheesecake pie is a creamy and delicious treat. Combine jello, sugar, and cream cheese to make the sugary filling. You can make the crust with graham crackers and fresh strawberries from the local farmer’s market here in Lowell, MA.
