Tuscan Grilled Zucchini and Yellow Crookneck Squash

Summer squash soaks up the garlic, herbs, and lemon in this marinade like a sponge, and bursts with flavor after a quick turn on the grill. Use the extra marinade (you'll have some leftover) to drizzle over a grain salad, or to grill more vegetables.

Beer-Braised Pork Shoulder

This recipe is meant to be a guide: you can add different liquids, vegetables, and seasonings - it's a very forgiving recipe. If you'd like to use a slow cooker instead of a Dutch oven, be sure to reduce the liquid so that it doesn't boil over.

Nothing Muffins

This is the closely guarded, secret recipe for the Willy Street Co-op's famous Nothing Muffins!

Grilled Plantains

Once your grill is fired up, these are dead simple to make, and you can use plaintains of varying ripeness with good results. The riper, yellow and black plantains will be sweeter and more creamy, and green ones will yield a milder taste with a starchy, dry texture.

Parsley Pepita Pesto

This tasty pesto is made from flat-leaf parsley, which gives it a fresh and vibrant flavor. Pumpkin seeds, or pepitas, are toasted until warm and nutty, and make this pesto safe for those with tree nut allergies.

Ambrosia (Citrus Salad with Coconut)

What a perfect winter dessert! Seasonal citrus pairs up with pineapple and shredded coconut in a simple, not too sweet fruit salad. Note that it only takes a few minutes to prepare, but it's best when allowed to sit for a couple of hours to let the flavors develop.

Radicchio, Carrot, and Cara Cara Orange Salad

This crunchy, brightly-colored salad has a touch of spice from fresh ginger and shallot dressing. If you don't have any bulgur on hand, feel free to substitute rice, quinoa, or couscous, and if Cara Cara oranges aren't available, use navels.

Persimmon Salsa

You can make this tasty and unique salsa up to 4 hours ahead of time. Just keep covered in the refrigerator, and bring to room temperature before serving. Serve with tortilla chips or roasted chicken.

Coconut Snowballs

Tender, buttery, and not too sweet, these simple no-bake cookies will be welcome at any gathering!

Cranberry, Jicama, Cilantro Salsa

Naturally tart cranberries pair nicely with lime, cilantro, and jalapeño to make an unusual and tasty salsa that goes well with tortilla chips, but can also be served instead of (or alongside) cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving.

Pot Roast with Cranberries

This complex-flavored pot roast with cranberries is rich and warming, with a light sweetness from caramelized sugar and citrus.

 

Steak alla Pizzaiola

Canned crushed tomatoes and fresh herbs make a savory, quick, rustic sauce for steak.

Individual Pot Roasts with Thyme-Glazed Carrots

Pot roast is typically a weekend dinner, requiring loads of time in the oven. Scented with rosemary and thyme, these delicious, individual-sized ones speed up the process to get dinner on the table in under two hours, most of which is hands-off time on the oven. This makes a great meal on its own, or with some good bread and a salad. 

Maple Bourbon Peach Butter

Use this delicious fruit butter on buttered toast, as a topping for waffles, or as a glaze for meats.

Cherry and Plum Preserves

Dark, sweet cherries and black plums make a delicious, rich jam, and the addition of bourbon or brandy makes it luxurious.

Homemade Spicy Ketchup

If you are not a ketchup person now, this spicy and sweet spread is likely to convert you! A little jar would also make a great gift in the summer.

 

Bruleéd Pluots

Stone fruits are transformed when cooked. The fruit sugars are intensified, and they hardly need any sugar to make an indulgent, but still fairly healthful dessert. They're delicious on their own, but try with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or a spoonful of creme fraîche on top.

Stewed Plums

These stewed plums are lovely to eat at any time of day. Have them with hot cereal or spoon them on toast with some cream cheese or butter.

Mexican-Style Peach Salad

This is a fun summery fruit salad to play around with. Make it as written, or substitute the peaches for mangoes or another stone fruit. 

Red Fruit Salad

This fruit salad is great immediately after assembling, but if you have a day to let the flavors develop in the refrigerator, it's even better!

Summer Peach Salsa

This peach salsa is nice with tacos and tortill chips, but try it alongside anything grilled, too!

Persian Herb Frittata

This frittata uses fragrant fresh herbs by the handful. Feel free to make substitutions - this is a very versatile recipe and would be delicious with a generous amount of other herbs or tender greens. 

Gluten-free Macaroni and Cheese

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

Savoy Cabbage Chips

This is an interesting variation on the (almost!) ubiquitous kale chip that has been popping up everywhere. Savoy cabbage, being the showiest of all cabbage with its crinkly leaves, makes a very elegant snack.

Slow Cooker Spicy Red Beans

Who doesn't love slow cooker recipes?

Adjust the level of spices in this dish with more or less cayenne. Serve with greens and cornbread.

Root Ribbons with Sage

Burdok, sweet potatoes, turnips, or other root vegetables would be good substitutes for the ones listed below. Avoid beets though, as they would turn your dish scarlet.

Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter

This is Marcella Hazan's classic recipe for tomato sauce. It calls for just four ingredients and is celebrated for its simplicity and surprisingly rich flavor.

Satsuma Sorbet

Whoever said icy treats should only be savored in the peak of summer? Satsumas shine in mid-winter. Here's a special way to enjoy them.
