"Magic" peppers  — an easier alternative to roasted red peppers 

http://www.alexandracooks.com/2015/09/03/magic-peppers-salad-with-pine-nuts-capers/
Is it me or does everything feel too much like hard work right now? Removing kernels from cobs; blanching anything; peeling anything; slicing anything — it’s all too much. This is unfortunate because so many of my favorite summer dishes — fresh corn polenta, Hazan’s tomato sauce, roasted red pepper sandwiches — require a teensy …

Baking Steel Griddle Giveaway  plus One-Bowl Buttermilk Pancakes:

http://www.alexandracooks.com/2015/08/18/one-bowl-buttermilk-pancakes-baking-steel-griddle-giveaway/
Over the weekend, I said goodbye to my electric griddle, a gadget I’ve had for over a decade, one I’ve loved and hated over the years for various reasons: loved for its large, flat surface and, um, well, that’s really it. My electric griddle is big and cumbersome, awkward to find space to both use …

And one more thing: no salting. Monday’s Cooking newsletter brought to my attention an old Marian Burros recipe for eggplant parmesan adapted from a recipe in Jamie Oliver’s Jamie’s Italy. The recipe omits breading and frying the eggplant, calling for roasting instead. On Wednesday, using one eggplant from Tuesday’s CSA and one very tired eggplant …

Moosewood Tomato Salsa — such a good one!

http://www.alexandracooks.com/2015/08/21/moosewood-tomato-salsa/
I never imagined posting a recipe for tomato salsa nor following one in a cookbook till last Friday, when my neighbor Sandra had us over for dinner. As Cornell chicken charred on the grill, we all, children included, tucked into a bowl of salsa — it was irresistible. When I asked what was so magical …

Thomas Keller Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches Sandwiches: http://www.alexandracooks.com/2015/08/07/tko-ice-cream-sandwiches/
Two summers ago, I spent a week with my friend Bates, home from abroad for the summer, in Duxbury, Mass. We spent most of our days tending to the kiddies, but always made time for a little baking, often from The Bouchon Bakery Cookbook, a rental from the library Bates had been relishing all summer, …

Can't get enough of this all-purpose Thai peanut sauce: http://www.alexandracooks.com/2015/07/23/all-purpose-thai-peanut-sauce-2/
Last summer ambitious garden plans got the best of us, mostly by way of the greens (kale and chard), which we just couldn’t keep up with. This summer, we’ve kept it simple, planting five tomato plants in the raised bed and herbs — Thai basil, basil, and tarragon — in three large pots. Thus far …

Whole Peach Bellini Recipe and a Few Other Ideas for the Fourth up on the blog: http://goo.gl/KjvGj5
Just before Cinco de Mayo, friends had us over for dinner. No sooner had we stepped through their front door than the blender began whirring, churning out margaritas into salt-rimmed glasses. Those were the first of the season for us and coupled with homemade tortilla chips — seriously addictive — and guacamole, we were in …
