Maple roasted plums are served with a creamy coconut pudding.
While the weather may still be warm here and showing no sign of crisper days to come, the last of the peaches and nectarines are slowly being replaced by crates of plums and apples; the first hint that the season is changing.

A savory vegetable loaf cake brimming with summer squash, zucchini and carrots.
If you’re anything like me, when you see a recipe with the word “cake” in the title, you probably think “sweet” and “dessert”, but this is not that kind of cake.

Time just has a way of slipping away from me; you too? Especially this time of year when I want to enjoy every delicious moment that summer has to offer.
I want more lazy afternoons outdoors, more picnics at the beach, more ice cream (just because), and more juicy sun-ripened peaches and nectarines that drip and dribble all over your hands.
But summer isn’t at its end quite yet and I’m making the most of what’s left.
A smooth and flavorful chilled tomato soup made from both fresh and sun-dried tomatoes for a refreshingly different way to enjoy ripe seasonal tomatoes.
It’s rather fortunate isn’t it that at the very moment when it seems too unbearably hot to even contemplate turning on the oven there’s a plethora of ripe fruit and vegetables to choose from at the market.
Chopped vegetable salads and fruit for dessert has become the norm around here lately as I try to minimize my time in front of a hot oven or stove. Soup has been on the menu as well; chilled soup that is, the kind that whips up in minutes and can stay in the fridge ready to be sipped or spooned at a moment’s notice.
Tips on selecting, storing and preparing tomatoes with recipe ideas for everything from drinks and appetizers to mains and sides.
We are finally at that time of year where tomatoes are worth buying again. Tomatoes (like most fruits and vegetables) are truly best enjoyed when in season or you run the risk of slicing into a mealy, flavorless specimen.
