Grilled Pork Skewers with Peaches

Grilled Pork Skewers with Peaches

We just can’t get enough of this peachy, simple, skewer-y, summer salad of sorts that comes together in far less than an hour. Prep, grill, toss. You’re done.

Five cinnamon granola bars arranged side by side.

Cinnamon Granola Bars

We quite like these granola bars just as-is. But don’t let that stop you from adding your fave stir-ins to make them even more irresistible.

A white bowl filled with pimento cheese and some saltine crackers topped with the cheese next to the bowl

Barbecue Pimento Cheese

Not all pimento cheese recipes are created equal. This one, with a touch of barbecue, definitely has an unfair advantage.

White plate with a maple pork chops, carrots, and beets with feta cheese

Maple Pork Chops

Expect a subtle sweetness from this pork chop sensation that comes together from pantry standbys. We suspect that, like us, you’re gonna wanna add it to your weeknight rotation.

A pile of sugar-dusted easy raised doughnuts on a white plate.

Easy Raised Doughnuts ~ Cuddureddi

Cuddureddi. It means “a cause for celebration” if you’re from Italy. Well, actually, it means “a sort of doughnut.” Sorta the same thing.

A large bowl filled with grilled panzanella, with cherry tomatoes, torn bread, and basil leaves.

Grilled Panzanella Salad

This brashly untraditional panzanella grills the bread so you can dispense with waiting for stale bread. Still frugal. Still stunning. Still more than the sum of its parts.

Square plate of a pile of grilled sweet and sticky sriracha drumsticks and grilled scallions

Sweet and Sticky Sriracha Drumsticks

Slightly sweet. Slightly sticky. Slightly spicy. Thoroughly irresistible. That’s what we think—and, more importantly, what we hear—about these easy grilled drumsticks.

A white plate topped with beet salad with goat cheese and honey and watercress leaves.

Beet Salad with Goat Cheese and Honey

Roast beets until sweet enough to be considered dirt candy. Plonk on a place with tangy goat cheese, peppery greens, and a generous drizzle of honey. Lunch is done.

A metal shaker filled with foamy egg cream.

Egg Cream

A soda fountain classic made with neither egg nor cream, this classic quencher is a summer staple for kids of all ages.

Two slices of chocolate sandwich, made with toasted French bread, chocolate, and a sprinkling of salt on a wire rack.

Chocolate Sandwich

A proper dinner any night, this chocolate sandwich with a French accent is a far cry from Wonder bread and Hershey’s. Oooooh sooooo far.

A glass of cucumber gimlet with ice and cucumber slices.

Cucumber Gimlet

Made with gin, cucumber, simple syrup, and lime, this is simply a slight riff on a classic cocktail with a twist…or rather, a slice.

Two beer can chickens sitting on cans of beer in aluminum tray, a tray of smolder wood chips nearby.

Beer Can Chicken

A whole hen plunked unceremoniously on a can and cooked on the grill or in the oven. A tailgating classic that’s simple and perfect—even when you’re not tailgating.

Two glasses of rhubarb sour with lemon slices floating in them

Rhubarb Sour

A rhubarb sour made with gin is probably not how your grandma chose to use those sweetly tart spring stalks. Her loss.

Two steaks on a cutting board topped with herbed compound butter an a bowl of the butter on the side.

Herbed Compound Butter

Nothing says “I love you” like sharing steak swimming in a puddle of melting herb butter. Consider it Cupid’s little helper.

A glass filled with cantaloupe agua fresca, and glasses of other liquid around it.

Cantaloupe Agua Fresca

Normally we have an issue with people talking fresh to us. But in the case of these agua frescas, or fresh flavored waters, we’re all ears.

Moroccan Salad

Acidity. Saltiness. Sharpness. Herbaciousness. This North African salad is where all these elements collide to quite lovely effect.

A bowl of homemade dukkah

Dukkah

We can’t stop sprinkling this everyday Egyptian magic over anything and everything. (Seriously. Someone send help.)
