With the best of the season coming from “orchards, farms and gardens,” NPR has put together an impressive collection of 10 summer cookbooks.
About a month ago, I ate almost an entire box of kale chips. My brother and I were visiting our cousin in Brooklyn, and before a very thoughtfully prepared vegan dinner, she put out these kale chips from her local co-op.
If I could curate a cookbook for you, this would be it.
I could not figure out what to do with the delectable slices of Pear Cake that I brought home from this wonderful Sunday supper - eat them slowly, a little bit at a time, and make them last as long as possible? Or, eat them all up, a snack full of love, as soon as it was tea time on Monday afternoon…?
This recipe came to me from a good friend, who made the dish as part of a birthday dinner for her fiance. They loved it, we loved it, and so I had to share it with you.
I love juice made from carrots, apple and a zing of ginger. But, sometimes, it’s just a bit too thin for me. I wanted to replicate those flavors in a hearty soup, something that still feels like spring.
One of my favorite things to as the weather warms up is to slice up some citrus - oranges, lemons, and limes - and steep them in a cool pitcher of water.
