Looking ahead at the weather, this recipe post couldn’t be more timely. Fresh corn is still in season, although not for much longer and we do have some upcoming cooler temps and rain (ugh) in the forecast. Let’s hang onto summer as long as we can with this one!

Recipe: Corn, Tomatoes, and Clams on Grilled Bread, Knife-and-ForkÔÇôStyle

Post by Olivia Blodgett, Registered Dietitian

Summer is the season that I get incredibly inspired to cook. The fresh produce is abundant and so delicious as is that you really don’t need or want to do much to it to alter it’s natural flavor. Our unseasonable early heat this year made we want to jump the gun and start using fresh corn and tomatoes in dishes but a visit to the farmer’s market this weekend reminded me that it’s still a little early for these favorites. So I’m just going to leave this recipe here for you to bookmark for when it’s time in a few weeks. This and panzanella are my absolute two favorite recipes of the entire year. Here’s to long summer days, swimming in rivers, gorging on juicy berries and eating outside. This truly is the best time of year!

Recipe: Green Shakshuka

Post by Olivia Blodgett, Registered Dietitian

This is one of those recipes I’m bringing back to my table! We used to make this frequently and then totally forgot about it until I stumbled upon my old recipe book. Shakshuka originated in North Africa and its original recipe has evolved and adapted to different cultures throughout the world. It can be eaten for breakfast or dinner. I personally prefer dinner, since the prep is a little much for my busy morning time. The original recipe features poached eggs in a hearty, spiced tomato sauce. This version is quite different and is composed of loads of Swiss chard, making it feel a little lighter, springier and healthier. This dish is amazing and I hope you give it a whirl!
