Summer days and nights call for some delectable meals with family or friends. Here’s a few mouthwatering recipes for you to satisfy your cravings.
Heirloom tomatoes are not your ordinary tomato. They are colorful, flavorful and oddly shaped. What makes them an heirloom is the actual seeds. They are passed down from season to season by farmers that have taken them from the plants that produced the best fruit. The plants are open-pollinated, meaning it’s done naturally by birds, bees, wind or human hands, not genetically modified. And August is prime season for heirloom tomatoes.
It’s also prime grilling season. There’s nothing better than the smell of someone cooking a steak on the barbecue. Here’s a steak recipe from the Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten. What makes this one special is not only the rub but how it is grilled. Ina learned the method from Mark Lobel of the famous multi-generational butcher shop Lobel’s on Madison Avenue in New York City. Perfect steak every time!
And then for a decadent yet simple dessert. Most people use their overripe bananas to make banana bread. Ayesha Curry has a fresh take on using them with her recipe for banana fritters in a rum sauce. There’s minimal ingredients, most of which you probably already have in your pantry. And don’t worry if your bananas aren’t ripe. She even has a trick to ripen them in 15 minutes.
Hope you have a great week!
