I don’t know about you, but the crisp mornings have arrived, but I still have a fridge full of stone fruit. Is it summer? Is it fall? I don’t know! But what I do know, is that these Brandy Lemon Baked Plums satisfy the neverending fresh fruit cravings of summer, and the cuddly, warmth of fast approaching autumn. Sometimes being stuck in the in between in a tasty place to be.
Jalapenos! I happened across far more jalapenos than I possibly could use this summer thanks to my awesome Imperfect Produce delivery. I made some salsas, tacos, and pickled some, but was still looking for something new to use them for. That is how this Jalapeno Jelly: No Pectin (!) came to be.
Cauliflower is one of those foods that is so good for you and that I’m always open to eating, but enjoy it in more…creative ways. These fritters are definitely one of those “creative” ways to enjoy some of your abundance of cauliflower! Baked cauliflower cheddar fritters are a slightly healthier option, but 100 percent tasty.
Ah summer. So much fruit, so many ideas on how to use them all up! I feel like this has been one of the best peach years I have ever experienced in the PNW. They’ve all ripened beautifully and have had that perfect sweetness. This means they are also fun to cook with, not just snack on. These Pork Chops with Peach Salsa are a fantastic late summer dish with a little sweet and a little heat.
This summer I have been eating so many salads. I eat some variation of a “salad” nearly everyday for lunch. When made right, they are enjoyable, filling, nourishing, energizing, and delicious! I have probably made this a half dozen times in the last couple months – it’s so good. You’re going to love this Thai Noodle Salad with Cilantro-Lime Steak.
