End of Summer Corn Chowder

As the song goes, €œI’€™m as corny as Kansas in August…And I proudly admit it. The end of the summer most assuredly sets my mind on certain culinary treats€“ and fresh corn is definitely one of them. Oh, there are bushels of it available throughout the summer, to be sure. However, this time of year offers the last chance to sample the local harvest and that makes it all the more sweet. So off I drive to suburban and yes, rural areas surrounding New York City in search of those golden kernels…

Strawberry Angel Food Trifle

This trifle is an impressive but easy way to enjoy one of spring’s most delicious fruits – the strawberry. Made with angel food cake and cool whip, it’s a not-too-sinful weeknight treat. If you’re entertaining, make it with heavy cream and chocolate sauce.

Zucchini “Mock Crab” Cakes

We all know my vegetarian heart weeps for the seafood I do not eat. There are a lot of good meat substitutes out there (fake hamburger, bacon, sausage, chicken strips, and hot dogs to name a few) but there just isn’t a seafood stand-in. The best cure for the seafood-sick heart seems to lie in substitutions rather than swaps. For example, instead of a fake tuna sandwich, you replace the tuna with chickpeas.

Making Man Jam: Peach Ginger and Almond Conserve

A few weeks ago after a, do forgive the pun, fruitful trip to Michigan, my kitchen became jam central. For three days and nights I peeled, pitted, sliced, macerated, stirred, simmered, and ultimately canned my way through nearly fifty pounds of fruit. When it was over the kitchen floor was shiny and sticky, and I added sixty-five jars of jams, preserves, conserves, spoonsweets, and compotes to my basement larder.

Summer Spaghetti: Broad beans, spinach and mint

For us, as non-natives, part of the goodness of eating seasonally is actually discovering what is in fact seasonal. Broad beans, we understand, are summery even if the skies under which they grow are bleak and seemingly devoid of any sunlight. Moving on, this recipe was the first time we used them and it is pretty good. All can be made while the pasta is boiling and happily exists without the cheese if you want to go dairy-free.

Tomato Onion and Cucumber Salad

This salad was super light and delicious on a hot summer day. Tomatoes and cucumbers are at their peak now and a very simple rice vinegar dressing put their flavors at center stage. Prep is quick and easy, and it’s a perfect end-of-summer dish to celebrate all that’s good to eat and locally sourced this time of year. Eat this salad right away, though. It really doesn’t keep well overnight. Enjoy!
