No doubt the watermelon has been dominating every backyard BBQ you’ve attended lately. From salad, cocktails, to dessert, I’ve tried watermelon every which way and then some. They are in their sweet, juicy prime and the possibilities are endless. But what about those other melons?

There is a hint of fall in the air, and that makes me giddy!

When I think about the flavors of summer I am immediately transported back to a house party a few years ago, where a friend served crackers, goat cheese, basil and tomatoes. This snack is a great example of how simple dishes and seasonal produce can win over your taste buds! Tomatoes are at the peak of their season. Their compadre basil is also busting a move.

Do you ever find yourself staring, well let’s be honest drooling, at an array of fresh, golden peaches? Only to get home and find the four you bought are too soft or juiceless or just plain not as good as they look on the outside? It’s a common grocery store conundrum.

Tis’ the season of zucchini! The summer squash, if not already, will soon be filling up your garden. It’s time to pull out your recipes for zucchini bread, zucchini brownies, or zucchini fritters and get cooking!

If you’ve been in the store this last month you’ve seen the stacks of luscious stone fruit slowly taking over our produce aisles. We’ve had peaches from Washington, as well as Ashland’s Valley View Orchards, and any day now we’ll have local Rolling Hills peaches.

Let’s get fresh! Liven up your grilling and summer dishes with homemade salsa. Adding fruit and fresh peppers into a salsa recipe is a great way to infuse the flavors of summer in every dish. Grilling your fruit, peppers or onion deepens their flavors, so throw some on next time you light up the grill.

Holy heat wave, did we all survive? How about your gardens? While weather is still expected to be around 100 degrees this week, it’s a relief to drop below 107. Last week I harvested my first zucchini! It was tender and a beautiful golden yellow color.

The abundance of summer is rolling in! Are you ready?

This time of year I pour through blogs and books about canning and preserving the harvest, gleaning inspiration from my peers and weighing in my mind which recipes would make good gifts. The stack of empty Ball jars in my pantry glisten with inspiration and the promise of good things to come.

Let’s dive into the world mocktails! The beauty of a mocktail is they’re refreshing, beautiful, and you can drink them anytime of the day.
