What’s your sinful spin on the best fruits of summer?
Alex Lopez's golden raspberry harvest
Fruit is the ideal breakfast ingredient, especially during summer when you’re craving something light. Pair it up with a protein and you have a complete meal.
Alex Lopez shared this pic of golden raspberries growing wild in her garden, “great with honey, yogurt and almonds” — yum! My morning staple is almost identical, except I use fresh blueberries.

Fresh Peas: Friend or Foe?
I’ve always had a rocky relationship with peas. As a kid, I’d push the frozen variety around on my plate until they were cold and clammy, then eat a few and call it a day.
But even as a pea skeptic, I suspected the fresh ones would be different. So when I came across them at the farmers’ market, I knew it was destiny. Pea pods in hand, I headed home to widen my recipe repertoire.

"Kick The Can" Strawberry Ice Cream
With weather hovering in the 90s all weekend, I couldn’t wait for Cooking Channel’s Ice Cream Truck to head to Knoxville to get my icy fix. My head filled with just four words: Need. Ice. Cream. Now. (It was too hot for complete sentences.)
The Food Jammers crew had the same craving on a camping trip, but they weren’t waiting around for that ice cream truck, either. They got to work making ice cream DIY-style — with two coffee cans and a campfire. I was inspired to make my own, sans ice cream maker.

Inspired by an extremely sticky evening and Drink Up, I started my weekend early with Darryl Robinson‘s gin cocktail, the Cu Collins. Gin is one of my favorite liquors because of its distinctive flavors—gins are re-distilled to infuse them with spices and flavors from juniper berries and other botanicals. Darryl’s riff on a Tom Collins (traditionally mixed with gin, lemon juice, sugar and soda water) includes cucumber, herbs (I used basil) and lime. It’s pure genius—limeade with a cool, refreshing and bubbly twist, all complimenting the herbal notes of the gin. I could (and might!) drink this all summer long.

Right from the oven.
This may be the wrong time to make this proclamation but I am not Cherry Pie’s biggest cheerleader. All too often the gloopy, gloppy slices of America’s favorite leaves me wishing for something else. Of course I want to celebrate summer like everyone else and take advantage of cherry’s all-too-short season and that’s when I turn to cherry pie’s rustic cousin, the free form galette. And to the cherry pie lovers out there, go easy on me!
