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 […]

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.

You’ll find 9 of my go-to cold soup recipes below. They include classics like gazpacho and chilled cucumber soup as well as out-of-the-box ideas like cold carrot coconut soup and […]

Summer Love Letter + Zucchini Soup

This is a love letter to Swedish summer – to walking barefoot, swimming in lakes, eating strawberries every day, making potato sandwiches and cooking a delicious zucchini soup with lots of toppings.

On rainy spring afternoons, I hole up in the kitchen and make this asparagus soup recipe. It’s my spring substitute for the butternut squash soup I love making in the fall. When it’s too wet to be outside, I find it soothing and meditative to simmer a pot of asparagus soup on the stove and listen to the rain pattering on the roof. To me, it’s the perfect spring soup. Fresh basil makes it aromatic and refreshing, peas lend it a subtle sweetness, and blended potato makes it lightly creamy without any heavy cream. Serve it as a starter with […]

Even though yesterday was the first day of spring (!!!!), I still wanted to share this potato leek soup recipe with you today. It might seem wintry, but if you ask me, it’s actually perfect for early spring. At least in Chicago, we’ll have a few more snaps of cool weather (it snows every year on Jack’s April birthday), but on those chilly, gray spring nights, this cozy potato leek soup will warm us up! This recipe is also a great way to showcase spring leeks, as they add sweet, oniony depth of flavor to the creamy and comforting soup. […]

Cabbage Soup

This cabbage soup recipe does the impossible: it uses an entire head of cabbage in one go! Nearly every time I buy a cabbage, I whittle away at it for weeks, adding some to a slaw, some to a bowl, more to a taco, and so on. So the first time I made thi…


This cabbage soup recipe does the impossible: it uses an entire head of cabbage in one go! Nearly every time I buy a cabbage, I whittle away at it for weeks, adding some to a slaw, some to a bowl, more to a taco, and so on. So the first time I made this cabbage soup recipe, I was shocked. I started by adding half of my cabbage. As it wilted down, it melted into the soup with the aromatic veggies and herbs. I didn’t want it to disappear – I was making cabbage soup, after all – so I […]

Each year, when winter starts to melt into spring, I refresh my rotation of easy weeknight dinners. The weather begins to change, and so do my cravings. On some days, I’m still in the mood for the cozy comfort food of winter – hearty pastas, soups, and stews – but on others, I’m hungry for weeknight dinners that are lighter and brighter. This year especially, I’m ready for a change. I don’t know about you, but I feel like I have cooked more in the last 12 months than I ever thought possible. Right now, weeknight dinners that are quick […]

Cannellini Beans and Greens

I love the simplicity of this cannellini beans recipe. I first started making it last spring, when our trips to the grocery store were few and far between. You only need a handful of ingredients to make it – cannellini beans, aromatics, lemon juice, and Swiss chard – and even those are flexible. If you don’t have dried cannellini beans, substitute other white beans, like Great Northern or navy beans. If you don’t have chard, use kale or spinach. No shallot? Try an onion. No – well, you get the idea. After a long, hands-off simmer, these humble ingredients transform […]
