Here is an excerpt from the blog "My Daughter's Kitchen."
My oldest son, standing in for his sister and taking a crack at cooking and blogging, is not in the least bit interested in light or vegetarian recipes.
"Where's the beef?" was the refrain I often heard from him and his brother if I tried to offer meat-free dinners when they were growing up.
However, I did come up with some dishes the boys came to love, including this summer pasta salad, a take on a caprese salad, made with tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil leaves — and, of course, a hearty helping of sliced grilled chicken for the meat-eaters.
