Found shishito peppers at the farmers market, can’t resist! They’re like sweet little mini poppers. Take just a few minutes to sear in a hot pan until blister-y all over. Mostly sweet, though once in a while you’ll get a spicy one. They’re like a padron pepper’s adorable cousin who shows her temper once in a while, but it’s never that bad. Recipe now up on Simply Recipes. .

Green patty pan squash from @davisfarmersmarket , chopped onions, garlic, a chopped tomato 🍅 from my garden, all sautéed in extra virgin olive oil (thank you @cobramestateusa ), topped with cheddar cheese. Grew up with this recipe from my mom. It’s on @simplyrecipes (mom’s summer squash) super easy, healthy, all the good things. Peace ✌️ out. .

Today’s Aesop fable and quasi political statement brought to you by a trip to the @davisfarmersmarket ... A Fox one day spied a beautiful bunch of ripe grapes hanging from a vine trained along the branches of a tree. The grapes seemed ready to burst with juice, and the Fox's mouth watered as he gazed longingly at them.
The bunch hung from a high branch, and the Fox had to jump for it. The first time he jumped he missed it by a long way. So he walked off a short distance and took a running leap at it, only to fall short once more. Again and again he tried, but in vain.
Now he sat down and looked at the grapes in disgust.
"What a fool I am," he said. "Here I am wearing myself out to get a bunch of sour grapes that are not worth gaping for."
And off he walked very, very scornfully.
....There are many who pretend to despise and belittle that which is beyond their reach

Have you ever had a “slump”? It’s an old school dessert that is particularly useful on hot days when you don’t want to heat up the kitchen with the oven. You put berries, sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon in a pot, bring to a simmer, plop biscuit dough on top, cover the pot and cook, letting the biscuits steam up like dumplings. Serve with a little cream to cut the tartness of the berries.
I’m so not ready for summer to end. Flip flops and shorts every day. ☺️ Haven’t managed to go berry picking yet. Is there still time?

From the time I was 5 years old my job in our family of 8 was to make the salsa. This job entailed using an electric can opener to open cans of whole tomatoes and roasted green chiles, and using a knife to cut the chiles, onions, and cilantro. I knew exactly how much of each ingredient to put in the salsa bowl.
This is still my favorite salsa recipe. It’s the best accompaniment to steak and refried beans I know. (Recipe on Simply Recipes). What was the first thing you remember cooking that you loved? 👋❤️

How many potstickers 🥟 can you eat in one sitting? So much fun hosting master dumpling maker and pleater @hellolisalin for a wonton and potsticker making class here at my 🏡. If you want to see art in motion follow Lisa, she has mad mad dumpling skills. Her IG stories with her Chinese mom teaching Lisa to cook are captivating too. I have a long way to go before getting close to Lisa’s 🥟 skill level, but no matter what they look like when you cook them they taste great. .

Risotto requires and rewards patience. Lunch today was inspired by a balsamic vinegar risotto I had at a Michelin started restaurant in Italy 🇮🇹. Make risotto with arborio rice in the usual way, and near the end add halved cherry tomatoes and balsamic vinegar. Top with sliced basil 🌿 to serve. It’s a summer garden risotto! The balsamic adds a flavorful tang. I’m using Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI. 😋 . .

Super simple easy dinner on the site that doesn’t get as much 💕 as it deserves—Orzo with Shrimp 🍤 Tomatoes 🍅 and Olives. Shrimp and black olives are sort of a master combo. Now I need more ideas for pairing them. Shrimp and olive on toothpick for a party appetizer? Shrimp and olive dip? Baked shrimp with tomatoes and olives? What say you, oh brilliant ones of Instaworld?

Picture this...a ginormous inflated white unicorn raft with rainbow wings (didn’t know unicorns had wings, so not onto current unicorn 🦄 lore), with a head and horn that has sadly deflated due to a slow leak. It sort of looks like a floating dead white rainbow dragon. Could any of you resist climbing into one of those??? Could you? I couldn’t. Hanging out in #Annisquam at high tide. The water is cold but the sun 🌞 is warm and the unicorn is just the best pool toy EVER. . .
