A Simple Bean Salad

This is a recipe that gets better as it sits, is fast, cheap and easy to make, and is healthy and filling at the same time.

Stone Fruit Hibiscus Salad

It’s easy to scale this recipe. It would be the perfect dessert for a potluck or a snack to keep in the fridge over a week. It’s best to add the mint right before you eat the fruit salad (otherwise it wilts).

Borscht Soup

A delicious way to feature beautiful beets, this traditional soup is a perfect way to warm up, swirled with dill and horseradish yogurt.

Summer Peaches and Cream

Summer peaches are poached in their own juices with aromatic spice for sweet flavor and then served with the reduced juice-syrup and cool whipped cream or yogurt.
