    f the Senate bill passes next week, this tax cut for the wealthy disguised as a health care improvement will risk us all.

    Making a yummy Spanish tortilla without all the calories

    A Spanish tortilla is something like an incredibly tasty frittata made from sliced potatoes, vegetables and usually a flavorful cured meat, like Spanish chorizo or sausage. The tortilla is served hot or cold, cut into wedges — small pieces for an appetizer, or larger ones for a main dish. It's perfect at room temperature for picnics, warm for a lazy Sunday supper, or chilled in the fridge, for an easy-to-graze protein-filled snack.

    Three Melon Soup is a summer showstopper

    This soup's blazing good looks — a kaleidoscope of red, yellow and green — result from the fact that each of the three purees keeps to itself. And you don't need to be a professional food stylist to pull off this trick — just spoon the purees into separate parts of the bowl.

    Keep cool this summer with fresh fruit blended with ice

    Worse, the "fruitiness" is often from flavored syrup instead of the actual fruit, which likely translates into high-fructose corn syrup and food dyes. Even "natural" frozen fruit drinks often have a bunch of added sugars. (Remember: White sugar is natural. It doesn't mean your body needs a ton extra.)

    Summer treat: Hot fruit crisp topped with vanilla ice cream

    I am partial to a crisp which is fruit topped with a combination of "crisp" oatmeal, flour, butter and sugar and sometimes nuts. The topping ranges from streusel to granola and completely covers the fruit. Since the topping is everyone's favorite part of the dessert, I add pecans to make the crisp topping even more crunchy and substantial. I think of it as the dessert version of granola. The crisp is sometimes referred to as a crumble or a buckle when a more classic streusel topping is used.
