Tomatoes were my favorite food as a child, and my attachment to them has never really gone away. I look forward to them being in season all year long, and I celebrate their appearance more than any other summer produce. Unlike many vegetables, for which I’ll have a strong preparation preference (broccoli steamed; cauliflower roasted;…

Yep, another pasta dish—but this one’s definitely a departure from pasta salad. A while back, I saw my friend Ali’s recipe, adapted from an Alice Waters pasta dish, for toasted orecchiette with zucchini and corn. It looked wonderful, and I made a note to try it, or something like it. It took me a whole year to…

Last summer New York was every bit as hot and humid as it is now, but for some reason, I was busy baking up a storm. Galettes, buckles, lemon cake, you name it—I had my oven mitts ready for it. I happen to have made cobbler a few weeks ago, when it was still unseasonably…

This is one of those recipes that felt incredibly obvious once I’d made it; given my love of tahini and love of pesto, how is it possible that I hadn’t thought to combine them before? My curried tahini pasta salad proved to me that tahini is a great creamy base for pasta salads—a little more…

A few weeks ago, I declared my excitement for crisp/crumble/slump/cobbler season, but thanks to an early summer virus that declaration wasn’t followed by any immediate forays into fruity dessert territory. Finally, I went there, and this vegan peach & cherry cornmeal cobbler is the happy result. Last summer’s go-to dessert was either this blueberry buckle or…

In spite of a chilly couple of evenings here in New York, it’s summer, and with summer comes the sweet arrival of fresh strawberries at the farmers market. The moment is extra special because it heralds more summer berries and fruits to come, and I’ve been celebrating by putting strawberries in and on everything—this balsamic…
