Blackberry Muffins

Pssst… you know what the secret is to making the best blackberry muffins?

Muffins that are rich, tender, and loaded with blackberries?

No, it's not the butter (though butter makes everything better IMHO).

If your guess is it has something to do with the type of berries, you're close. Wild blackberries do make the best pies, muffins, and cakes. But you can only get those a couple months of the year.

Grilled Mexican Street Corn (Elotes)

Whenever we go back to my husband's hometown for any of the summer holidays – Flag Day, July 4th, or Labor Day – there is always a little taco cart sitting at the park with the rest of the food trucks. This one cart always a line stretching out in front and around the corner with people waiting to get their mitts on classic street tacos, burritos, and grilled Mexican street corn (elotes) slathered in sauce.

There is absolutely no way to eat this messy corn on the cob delicately, but usually you're not alone since half of the other people gathering for the event are equally covered in it as well. Small town events, and their street cart food, mean that summer is really here!

Zucchini-Feta Frittata

There aren't enough dishes in anyone's repertoire to use up all the zucchini from the garden and at farm stands this time of year. Add this hearty frittata to your list.

With its bright green flecks of grated zucchini, this dish can go from brunch table to picnic table to dinner table with ease.

Mozzarella Stuffed Sweet Mini Peppers

Have you seen those bags of sweet mini peppers showing up in the markets recently? They've become my new favorite snack. I down them raw like popcorn. Crunchy vegetable popcorn, with stems for handles.

When the grill is out I just toss the peppers with olive oil and plop them on the grill. Sprinkle with salt and you have the easiest pepper side ever for grilled meat.

The other day I had some leftover smoked mozzarella from a recipe and decided to stuff my favorite little peppers with it.

As if these little peppers couldn't get better. Wow!

Soft and Chewy Lemon Cookies

Unlike other lemon cookies, which have just the barest hint of lemon flavor, these cookies pack quite a lemony punch, but without tasting too sour or too artificial. The secret is to use three different types of lemon flavoring in the dough: lemon zest, lemon juice and lemon extract.

Most lemon cookies also tend to be crispy and crumbly. I have anything against those cookies, but I want a cookie that I can really sink my teeth into. These soft and chewy lemon cookies are certainly that.

Make Better Iced Coffee with Coffee Ice Cubes

Want iced coffee that stays strong to the very last sip? Then say hello to coffee ice cubes.

I am the tortoise, not the hare, when it comes to coffee. I sip slowly, but I always finish my cup – even when that means grimacing on the last diluted, watery dregs at the bottom of my iced coffee.

No more! Now that coffee ice cubes are in permanent residence in my freezer, my days of sad iced coffee are over.

Grilled Chicken with South Carolina-Style BBQ Sauce

Please welcome guest contributor Elizabeth Stark from the food blog Brooklyn Supper! ~Elise

Barbecue sauce is contentious in a way that few condiments are. Local pride is on the line. Sauce-wise, I'm mostly stateless and am just as happy with North Carolina-style vinegar sauce as I am with a Kansas City sauce made with tomatoes and molasses.

But when it comes to grilled chicken, nothing feels as perfect as the tang of a mustard-based South Carolina-style barbecue sauce.

Cucumber Salad with Mint and Feta

When the hot weather hits, nothing is more cooling than a cucumber salad!

I especially love the thin-skinned varieties of cucumbers—Persian, Armenian, English.

Their peels are thin and delicate, not bitter like regular cucumbers, so they don't require peeling. They're also not usually as seedy as their thick-skinned cousins.

Salmon with Tomato, Onions, and Capers

One of the best ways to prepare salmon is to poach it, in just a little liquid. We often use this "shallow poaching" method with a little white wine and herbs.

You can also make a simple sauce and poach the salmon in it, which is what we are doing here with these fillets, cooking them in a sauce of onions, tomatoes, white wine, and capers. Preparing salmon this way perfect for a quick and and easy midweek meal, and elegant enough for company.

How To Make Cold Brew Coffee

If you crave a good iced coffee in the summer, but loathe the way so many end up tasting watery or overly bitter, then there's only one solution: cold brew coffee. This method guarantees a smooth and icy cup, every time.

Korean Beef Skewers

These grilled Korean beef skewers are a little sweet, a little spicy from the gochujang (which is a Korean chili paste), and full of umami. The best part is that you can have them on the table in about a half hour.

I'll never forget the first time I ate Korean food. We were visiting my mom's friend in Los Angeles and she took us out for Korean barbecue. My first taste of kimchi, banchan, and bulgogi and I was hooked.
