What’s Cooking This Weekend? — Weekend of June 1-2, 2013

Recipe: Warm and Gooey Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookies

The nice thing about a holiday week is that the weekend comes round again a little bit sooner. It’s here already, and so is June. I know we’re all supposed to be grilling out now, and eating strawberries and tender greens, but man — I can’t get Anjali’s deep dish chocolate chip cookies out of my head! What about you? Did a recipe strike your fancy this week? Do you have plans to try something new? What’s cooking in your kitchen this weekend? 



Salad Niçoise, How to Make Almond Milk, Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookies & Baked Orzo with Ham and Peas — New Recipes from The Kitchn

This weekend, we will officially be taking dinner outside. Salad Niçoise is a favorite once the weather gets warm — easy to make, easy to carry to the picnic table, easy to share. If you’re more in the mood to grill, our beef and bacon burgers are the perfect candidate for first burger of the summer. Still chilly in your neck of the woods? A scoop of creamy baked orzo and a deep dish chocolate chip cookie is exactly what you need. And whether you’re eating inside or out, definitely shake up a few jam jar cherry spritzers to go with the meal! 



Home Made Summer by Yvette Van Boven — New Cookbook

I’ve been holding on to this one for a while, barely able to keep it to myself and just waiting for the right moment to share it with you. With these sunny days tempting us with summer and strawberries filling farmers market tables, that moment is now! Yvette Van Boven’s new cookbook Home Made Summer is packed with the kinds of recipes that we’ll be wanting from now until apple-picking season: bright and colorful salads, tarts filled with warm summer fruit, cocktails muddled with fresh herbs, and lots of other tasty surprises. This is the book of the summer.
