The best season for eating has always been summer. Tomatoes, corn and bbq. Three things that happen to be some of the most wonderful gifts in the world. I can recall many a slab of ribs, ear of corn and plate of sliced tomatoes sitting on my plate in the hot days of August. Nothing compares.

Savoring that sweetness of summer can be nearly impossible once the September chill kicks in, especially in food. How is it possible to capture that bright flavor year round while staying mindful of seasonality? Soup.

I whipped up this soup tonight–blending two recipes I’ve seen elsewhere and adding my own flavor, compliments of my CSA grown tomatillos. I’ll eat it chilled tonight, once its cooled off and the sun has gone down. Better yet, I will freeze half for later in the year and serve it warm as a chowder. Trust me; in those cold months, when the wind is blowing and you can feel the icy freeze in your bones and you’ll be dreaming of an outdoor farmers market, you’ll want a taste of these last sweet summer days.

What says summer in New England more than Corn and Clam Chowder? You can almost see the ocean when you take a whiff of a fresh batch of chowder.  I love the smokiness that the bacon adds.  With so many stick to your ribs ingredients like potatoes, cream, corn and bacon, this is the kind of soup that is a meal in itself.

Summer dinners need to be fresh, fast, and use up as much seasonal bounty as possible so that when September comes around again we don’t feel like we’ve shirked our summer eating responsibilities. This corn and lima bean ragout satisfies on all those counts. The quintessential 30-minute meal, it combines corn, lima beans, and tomatoes with some fresh herb flavor to make a delicious summer stew that goes great with a freshly baked biscuit or a crispy piece of toast.

Couscous & Linguica Summer Salad

This summer, beat the heat with a refreshing salad that not only will satisfy your hunger, but is full of fresh flavors and sweet (long awaited!) summer corn. Layered with crispy linguiça sausage, it’s the perfect salad to bring to barbeques and summer potlucks, to counteract the mayonnaise-laden salads that will be on the table.

What’s linguiça sausage? It’s born in Portugal and easily found in grocery stores around the United States. Some places where it’s popular include Seattle, Northeastern Massachusetts, Hawaii, and Rhode Island. Made from smoked and cured pork and spiced with garlic and paprika, linguiça is a flavorful sausage that adds a small amount of heat and a large amount of flavor to whatever you add it to. Enjoy this salad alongside grilled fish or meats, or all on its own as a stellar meal.

There’s nothing more inviting than walking into a home filled with the aroma of something secret roasting in the oven. The allure of slow cooking and the richness of the flavors that emerge from oven roasting trumps any aromatherapy candle – just the other day, visitors dropped by my house close to dinner time and were greeted by the scent of squash and corn in the oven, and they instantly gushed, “It smells so good in here!” Read More

I might just go out on a limb and exclaim that Mexican is the greatest cuisine of all time. Personally, I’d be happy to live on a diet on of beans and tortillas. Add a spritz of lime and a decent sprinkling of cilantro to bring things alive and you have total perfection on a plate.

Even if you think I’m exaggerating and vehemently disagree, I’m sure you’ll concede that a Mexican Lasagna sounds insanely delicious. A Mexican version of a classic Italian dish, minus the pasta and, of course, minus the meat and cheese. Read More

One of the most popular dishes at Red Rooster Harlem, is our Corn Succotash. This is the kind of dish that has been around forever and can be made in any number of ways. It’s really, in many ways, an open canvas to test out your creativity within certain boundaries. Although the original Red Rooster Corn Succotash is more complex and has its own secrets only found in the Harlem restaurant, this succotash is a simpler rendition of Red Rooster’s version that we’ve shortened to make it easy to make at home. It’s a pretty straight-forward corn succotash with clean and bright flavors and a great way to use all that delicious in-season corn. Read More

Oaxacan Green Mole Stew Recipe

At the end of almost every week, I am left with crisper guilt.  No matter how much menu planning I do, how many copies of my shopping list I take with me to the grocery store, or how many cookbooks I sleep with under my pillows, when I open up my crisper on Friday I am inevitably greeted by a drawer full of slightly wrinkled, almost ready to bite-the-dust vegetables. It’s heart wrenching, each and every time.

Thanks to recipes such as this Oaxacan green mole stew, however, I no longer have to cry myself to sleep at the thought of all the produce I’ve let go to waste, Read More
