Tomato Ricotta Tart

Summer is in full effect—the sun is shining long into the evening, weekends are spent lounging at the beach, and air conditioning is on full blast, 24/7.

Foodwise, the summer brings a bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables—one of my favorite is tomatoes. At their peak, tomatoes are great in a simple salad, atop a piece of toast, or sliced and eaten with just a sprinkle of salt.

Pan Bagnat (French Tuna Sandwich)

Welcome to le pique-nique! (That’s French for picnic: insert happy face here.)

This French picnic sandwich, pan bagnat, is your new best friend for any outdoor excursion. You can—and should—make it ahead. It’s supposed to be a little soft and squishy on the inside from the tuna fish and olive oil soaking into the bread. It is, well, magnifique!

Meal Plan for August Week 2

Please welcome Katie Workman for this month’s meal plans! Katie is a mother of two hungry boys and a meal planning wizard, so much so that it led to the creation of her blog The Mom 100 and a cookbook by the same name.

There are few things more appealing to me than daylight that stretches long into the evening, well past our usual dinner hour. If you are able to eat outside, seize that opportunity.

Seafood Paella

Are you ready for a party? Mix up a pitcher of sangria and call your friends and neighbors!

A festive occasion calls for a big statement, and this paella is just that: a colorful rice dish bursting with clams, mussels and shrimp along with smoky chorizo and saffron for tons of flavor. You don’t need much else to serve alongside it, but you could make a green salad if you feel inspired.

Set the whole pan of paella on your picnic table, and bring out some crusty bread and wine glasses. Summer is just too short not to celebrate it with friends.

What’s in Season in August?

August Seasonal Produce Guide

Hello August and welcome to month 8 of our Monthly Seasonal Produce Guides!

It’s almost unfair to offer a produce guide for August; it seems like everything’s in season right now, right?

This month’s guide is similar to July’s. As in July, you’ll find summer squash, tomatoes, corn, cucumbers, melons and stone fruit. But by August, blueberries aren’t as plentiful—blackberries have taken their place—and tomatoes really come into their own.

By now, if you garden, basil has likely taken over your beds, so it a good time to start making pesto. Cucumbers also tend to grow with wild abandon. Bread and Butter Pickles anyone?

You’ll also see okra, eggplant, green beans, and peppers of all sorts—bell peppers, shishito peppers, and jalapeños.
