Delicious cookies from Smart Cookie. Almond, cinnamon, lemon and vanilla. I tried all four kinds. My favorite?? I really don't know if I could choose. the vanilla, lemon or almond, though. There was a buy 2 get 2 free deal from frogzog (text smart cookie to 40123 and you too can get the deal!)
This is Mabey Corn. In other words, the sweetest, most delicious corn you've ever tasted...well, that I've ever tasted. It's a shame if you haven't tasted it.
This corn was picked right off the Mabey farm in South Jordan--my dad's cousin farms it now.
The newest way to eat a tuna sandwich--add a bit of mayo, a little fresh tomato and basil...that's it. Chicken would be good this way too.
Zuchini ribbon salad. raw zuchini and yellow squash, lemon juice (fresh is always best), olive oil, salt, pepper, shredded parmesan cheese (oops, took the photo before I added that) and fresh basil. Really, it's heaven on earth.
This was inspired by the Next Food Network Star..I know kind of nerdy, but I love the Food Network. It's Melissa D-Arabian's 4-step chicken. She uses onions and thyme...I used tomatoes and basil (yes, I had a huge basil/tomato fetish in August).
I learned how to make fruit arrangements at an enrichment night. Cool, hu? Sorry Edible Arrangements, but I think I've got you to beat with my marshmallow skewers.
This photo does not do these babies justice. Raspberry Butter cookie. I used a recipe from Joy the Baker as a base (I can never follow a recipe exactly...). I took these up to Snowbird to a fun family dinner. They were soft and delicious...and good to make ahead of time and freeze. I love love love Joy the Baker...I want to make everything on her site.
This would be a zuchini, tomato and basil scramble. I ate this for dinner... a dozen eggs worth of times this month. C1 is really missing out...(too many veggies and eggs for him--the crazy boy). There's no real recipe fort this...For this bowl, I used 1 zuchini and 1 small tomato with a stalk of green onion. I just cook up the the zuchini in a frying pan or cast iron skillet for best results, then add the tomato, basil and green onion. I whipped up two eggs with a wisk and then poured it on top of all the veggies. Top with salt and pepper. Stir, cook, eat.
Tin foil dinners. Oh...summer...i love you and your food.
