Salmon, blackberries, whiskey sours: The flavors of summer

I can’t quite figure out why the summer weeks fly by so quickly, especially since the days are longer. Maybe we all pack more in because it’s warm outside and light so much later into the evening. Whatever the reason, dinner time often sneaks up on me and I’m searching for something quick that’s satisfying and doesn’t look like I only took a few minutes to prep it. We all know that’s the sign of a good cook, right? Take simple ingredients and make them look and taste fancy.

Overstuffed freezers, summer produce a good pair

Hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July holiday. I skipped writing the column last week, because I was elbow deep in parsley, making tabbouleh (also known as tabblouli), grape leaves and the rest of the Lebanese feast for my family. When your girl cousins come in from out of state, you do what you should – make it worth their trip. It was a lovely time hanging with the family, and I think I’m mostly rested up from all the excitement and action.

Put pesto on this, that and everything else this summer

The downtown farmers market called my name this past Saturday morning. I know the Kansas Grown Farmers Market at the Sedgwick County Extension Center out west is much bigger, but I have so many memories of the downtown one from when I was a little girl going with Grandma Marge and Aunt Dorothy – back when it was located by what’s now The Kitchen and was then the Rock Island Cafe.
