Make grilled squash and manchego cheese quesadillas with charred tomato salsa tonight for Meatless Monday.

The Best 3-Ingredient Tomato Sauce

I’m what you’d call a tomato purist. Yep, you know the type: picking tomatoes off salads three quarters of the year, throwing expletives when restaurants dare use mealy, tomatoes in the summer, then eating my weight in caprese salads and tomato tarts and roasted tomatoes and BLTs (heavy on the Ts) all August long. And […]

Choose-Your-Fruit Crumbles

Summer is crumble season with fruits at the peak of deliciousness, yet I persist in making the same old classic crumbles: apple, or peach and blueberry. This summer I vowed to break out of my crumble rut and so I embarked on an epic bake-off, testing dozens of fruits and fruit combinations. In the process […]

Summer Fest: Fresh Corn Muffins

Week five of our season-long garden party Summer Fest 2011 welcomes food and garden bloggers to feature garden-to-table recipes and tips. We’ll help you to enjoy all that this season has to offer. So far, we’ve delved into eggplant, peaches, cucumbers and cherries. Now we’re on to a new crop: corn.

Yes, I turned on my oven. It was worth it though to work sweet summer corn into a classic corn muffin recipe. These savory corn muffins are a great accompaniment to any summer dish but since I prefer to snack all day, I made them miniature.

You can pick up corn right now from your local farmers’ market, but there should also be plenty in stock at the supermarket.

Grill Your Way Around the Globe

There’s something about grilling – firing up some coals or igniting the gas, popping open a bottle of beer and throwing meat on the grates – that makes us think about all-American burgers, dogs and simply grilled steaks. But grilling (whether over an open flame or on a griddle or grill pan) is a cooking […]
