This pasta dish is perfect as a meatless dinner, a quick lunch, or a delicious side. Roasted vegetables add an intensely rich, caramelized flavor that’s balanced with the light, fresh taste of lemons and parmesan cheese. We use eggplant and zucchini from our garden in this recipe, but you could easily swap in other vegetables like […]

We blend tropical mangos with peaches to make a creamy sorbet with just a touch of lime. This is easy to make using fresh peaches and mangos, or if they’re out of season, frozen peaches and mangos work well too.

It’s hard to believe a dessert that tastes so good can be loaded with so many vitamins and antioxidants. It’s easy to make, and when berries aren’t in season, frozen berries work just as well. When we make sorbet, we […]

This raspberry ice cream soda is the ultimate summer treat. It’s a perfect way to use fresh raspberries, and if they’re not in season, try this soda using frozen ones instead. I’ve noticed quite a variation in the tartness of the berries when I’ve made this, so adjust the sugar to your taste.
Made with 2 cups of blackberries, this refreshing iced tea not only tastes good, but it’s rich in vitamins and antioxidants. It’s a great spin on a classic drink, whether you’re throwing a party or just enjoying a warm summer day.
We’ve given traditional iced tea a new twist with tangerine and mint. It’s delicious, refreshing, and perfect on a hot summer day. And since we grow mint all year long on our patio, we usually have all of the ingredients right on hand. After I steep the tea, I transfer it to a large pan […]
This iced tea gets its deep, rich color from pomegranate juice and black tea. Orange and lime add a sweet-tart citrusy flavor. It’s a great alternative to sugary drinks like soda. It’s one of our favorites during the summer, but it’s also delicious any time of the year.
This colorful mango salsa comes together quickly and goes perfectly with meat, fish, and especially anything grilled. It’s also great with tortilla chips.
