Every summer, something happens that I look forward to all year: I spot a pile of the first sweet corn of the season at the farmers market. Immediately, my mind starts racing, imagining all the fresh corn recipes I’ll make when I get home. Should I start with a corn salad? Tacos? Chowder? Plain ol’ corn on the cob? I’ll only make one of these corn recipes on that first night, but in the coming weeks, I’ll cycle through all of them. In late summer, corn is so fresh, sweet, and juicy that I cook it (and eat it) as […]

The shrimp in these Coconut Red Curry Shrimp Skewers marinate in cooling coconut milk, spicy red curry paste and jalapeños, and fresh garlic, ginger, and lime juice. It’s a match made in heaven for big, juicy shrimp, which get nicely charred with the veggies on the grill. Most of the prep and cook time is hands-off, leaving you time to heat your grill and enjoy the summer weather. More shrimp skewer recipes I love are these Grilled Shrimp Panzanella Skewers and Gochujang-Honey Glazed Shrimp Skewers.

Cold soup is one of my summer obsessions, right up there with salads, cold brew, and everything sweet corn. On a hot summer day, there’s nothing I crave more.

When life gives you basil, make this pesto pasta salad recipe! It’s my favorite time of year: the time when our deck turns into a verdant garden. We have thriving pots of kale and tatsoi, twisting vines of summer squash, cherry tomatoes, a fig tree(!), and ALL the herbs. Our basil plants have been doing especially well lately, which is fine by me, because in mid-July, there’s nothing I’d rather eat. I first made this pesto pasta salad late last week, when I was dreaming up ways to use the pile of basil I’d just picked. I was in the […]

Creamy Summer Salad (with Crispy BBQ Chickpeas)

What started as a summer panzanella salad magically morphed into the most zingy, fresh, delicious, creamy summer salad on the block. We swapped bread croutons for super flavorful Crispy BBQ Chickpeas (optional but recommended), which add plenty of plant-based protein and fiber. And we skipped the greens and went straight for a rainbow of fresh chopped veggies and fresh pineapple for maximum flavor.

The dressing is shockingly simple and delicious: Just lime juice, tahini, coconut aminos, salt, and pepper.

We love sausage and peppers in my house, and these foil packets kick it up a notch flavor-wise with marinara and cheese. I used Arrabbiata sauce for a spicy kick, which I highly recommend, but regular marinara works too if you prefer milder food. Tommy gave these packets two thumbs up! For more sausage and pepper recipes, try this One Pan Roasted Potatoes, Sausage and Peppers and Pasta with Italian Chicken Sausage, Peppers and Escarole.
