My wife is not a vegetarian, but she loves eating healthy and that includes meals without meat. That is why she loves my Pasta Primavera! It is a perfect balance of spices and vegetables that is sure to impress your loved ones! This is a perfect meal for date night at home.

Growing up my father always made us Rigatoni. He said it was "the best in the world." Well Dad, I think this recipe even beats yours! This is the perfect meal to make for the family or if you want to be the rockstar of your next potluck.
I really love making this potato salad. It has a lot of my favorite things - from potatoes to bacon and eggs. Starting off with the most beautiful red potatoes and then adding egg and bacon and a great sauce makes it – unbeatable and unforgettable at the same time. This recipe is so easy to make and you can also make it even easier by checking out the tips section and referring to the bacon tip. This salad is a great item to bring and use for a group dinner or lunch. It's always a crowd pleaser!
My good friend Anna Jagodzinska is not only a supermodel, but also studying to be a holistic health coach and is the owner of Think Love Juices, a vegan restaurant in Warsaw, Poland. She joins me today on LivCooks to teach me her favorite smoothie recipes.
My wife and daughters and I love smoothies for breakfast, especially in the warmer summer months, so I was excited to learn some new recipes. Anna and I took a trip to the farm stand and gathered all the local and seasonal ingredients we needed for our smoothies and headed back to the Vitamix* to get started.
Hope you’ll try out this yummy smoothie recipe and let me know what you think. Also, check the blog soon for more of Anna and my other favorite smoothie recipes! As always, don’t forget to post your LivCooks creations with #LivCooks. I can’t wait to see you own your next smoothie!
*While a Vitamix is pricey, I have found it to be well worth the investment. I have had mine for over five years and it still works perfectly. I use it almost everyday to make everything from smoothies, to soups, to sauces and so much more. If you’re still using an old school blender, you can’t imagine what you’re missing! I promise it’s worth the splurge! #livcooksapproved
Christie’s newest beauty! I love drinking prosecco in the summertime. An ice cold glass of prosecco can help you beat the heat in the afternoon or at an evening cocktail party! Prosecco is so light and refreshing. I recently spent the afternoon with my friend Christie Brinkley at her house in Bridgehampton mixing cocktails with her brand new line of prosecco she’s named, Bellissima. Her passion for this project has kept her involved every step of the way from the vineyard in Italy to the beautiful design of the Bellissima bottle. Together we made a Negroni Spagliato, an Aperol spritz. Bellissima offers three varieties of prosecco; a Brut DOC, a sparkling rosé, and a zero-sugar option! The Bellissima zero-sugar is an amazing choice especially if you want to mix it into a cocktail like an Aperol spritz or the Negroni Spagliato (both recipes are below). Bellissima is made with organic grapes grown in the Veneto region of Italy. The zero-sugar variety is also zero-carb for those watching their waistlines!

Ever since I was a kid I have loved a good lobster roll. If you are not familiar, a lobster roll is basically lobster salad served in a hot dog bun, but it is certainly not basic! There are two types…one is served hot and the other cold. I’m definitely on Team Cold, but wouldn’t turn either away! Since we moved to North Carolina, I look forward to summers on Long Island where I can get a damn good lobster roll. A few weeks back I visited my friends at The Lobster Roll Restaurant, affectionately know as “Lunch” in Amagansett, NY. I think they make one of the best rolls on the East End and I couldn’t wait to learn their secret recipe. Andrea and Paul, the owners for nearly four decades, were so kind to welcome me into their kitchen and allow Simon, who has been with them for six years, to teach me a thing or two about lobster rolls.
I am so excited to make lobster rolls in my own kitchen this summer and hope you’ll check out the video here and do the same! Also, don’t forget to post your LivCooks creations with #LivCooks. I can’t wait to see you own your next lobster roll!
