Almond-Crisped Peaches

Improving upon perfect summer peaches seems unlikely, but baking them with a buttery and crisp topping makes it happen.

Apple Crumble

Apples are cooked once in a skillet before being topped with crumble and baked. The long cooking time turns the apples caramel-scented, sweet, and sticky.

Apple Pancake

In spite of its name, this is more of a baked custard, redolent with apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon.

A delightful description of this cake from Smitten Kitchen's Deb Perelman: "A tangy, impossibly moist, vanilla-flavored cake base ceilinged with hefty crumbs that will make all streusels that came before pale in contrast."

Breakast Banana Split

A banana split for breakfast? This quick, easy, yummy breakfast takes a dessert classic and lightens it up for the morning. This is so easy, it hardly needs a recipe, and you can easily modify this one to suit what you have in your kitchen. Try cottage cheese in place of Greek yogurt, add nut or seed butter or instead of the preserves, sprinkle with walnuts or almonds, cinnamon, goji berries, or fresh fruit, the list goes on!

Brown Butter Walnut Pie with Sour Whipped Cream

Walnuts replace pecans in this variation on the classic pecan pie. The earthy flavor of the walnuts is highlighted with brown butter, and the pie is topped with dollops of tangy sour cream topping. This will earn a welcome spot on your Thanksgiving table for years to come.

Bunched Turnips with Miso

Japanese cuisine often features young bunched turnips. This recipe is a nice way to highlight their mild flavor.

Butter-Poached Stone Fruit

Use your favorite stone fruit or a combination for this delicious dish. It's yummy on it's own, but would also be nice paired with ice cream or yogurt, or stirred into oatmeal.

If ricotta isn't your favorite, use lightly sweetened mascarpone instead, or even whipped cream!

Refreshing, light, and festive, this granita is the perfect way to finish a heavy meal.

Delicata Squash with Rosemary, Sage, and Cider Glaze

Exceptional. This fragrant fall dish is a lovely embellishment to any meal, but is satisfying enough to be the main attraction. Savory-sweet crescent moons of delicata squash become intoxicatingly aromatic when sauteed in brown butter and fresh herbs. Particularly lovely when paired with wild rice.

Fig Walnut Ice Cream

Slightly bitter walnuts and sweet, fragrant figs make a very tasty and sophisticated ice cream. Break out the ice cream maker!

French Apple Cake

Dorie Greenspan's cake couldn't be easier to prepare. It is chock-full of apples, whose flavor is heightened with vanilla and boozy, dark rum. This is a decidedly grown-up cake that keeps beautifully, up to three days after baking - although it's so good, it's hard to imagine there being leftovers for that long!

Glazed Bunched Turnips

Bunched turnips are the small, delicately flavored turnips that appear in Produce in spring. They are delicious raw, or gently glazed as in this recipe.

This is not a fancy or refined macaroni and cheese; this is mac and cheese straight from childhood, just yummy and cheesy!

Grapefruit Yogurt Cake

Deliciously flavored with grapefruit, this cake is light and springy. Nice for a sweet breakfast, or of course, for dessert.

Green Garlic and Creamy Avocado Pesto Gnocchi

Green garlic is just young garlic, so the taste is milder and, depending on how young it is, usually isn’t encased in papery skin that needs to be peeled. Simply cut off the roots, and slice like an onion. You can eat the stalks as well, like scallions.

Grilled Eggplant and Olive Pizza

This hearty, delicious pizza, loaded with smoky grilled eggplant and provolone, can serve as a stepping stone for you into the exciting world of grilling pizzas!

Grilled Tomato and Basil Pizza

Using the Co-op's pizza dough makes this so easy! The following recipe is quite minimal, so use this as a starting point - try a more traditional one with tomato sauce, or pesto, and add meat if you like, or more vegetables. Once you've grilled pizza, you won't want to turn the oven on for the rest of the summer.

A bit of cardamom takes this simple smoothie from everyday to unexpected.
