What to Eat in the Heat
When warm Summer weather is here, you will want to make delicious meals, snacks, desserts and drinks using The Complete Summer Cookbook.
There are two big factors to consider, when it comes to Summer recipes.
First, you don’t want to heat up the house and spend a long time in a hot kitchen.
Second, it is peak season for a whole lot of fruits and vegetables, so you will want to make the most of them.
This beautiful cookbook from America’s Test Kitchen has 500 recipes that include classic favorites and more unique dishes.
It is a fantastic resource, so it can be used often.
Following are some of my favorites:
- Chickpea Salad with Carrots, Arugula and Olives
- Fresh Corn Salsa
- Bread and Butter Pickles
- Fresh Fruit Tart
- Sweet Tea
The recipes are easy to follow, so beginners in the kitchen and more experienced cooks will enjoy them.

A hot day and hanging over your stove were never meant to be.
When fresh produce beckons but you haven’t much energy to respond, these recipes help you settle into a more relaxed kind of cooking designed to keep you and your kitchen cool.
Untether yourself from the oven with make-ahead meals best served cold (or at room temp), like Poached Salmon with Cucumber and Tomato salad and Tzatziki.
Fix-and-forget recipes like North Carolina-Style Pulled Pork made in the electric pressure cooker won’t steam up the kitchen.
Equally easy are dinner salads; we’ve got enough to keep them interesting and varied, from Shrimp and White Bean Salad with Garlic Toasts to Grilled Caesar Salad.
Barely more effort are fresh summer recipes requiring the briefest stint in a pan, such as Beet and Carrot Noodle Salad with Chicken or Braised Striped Bass with Zucchini and Tomatoes.
