What I’m Cooking Lately

I have been doing quite a bit of cooking lately, but haven’t posted the recipes because, well…I’ve already posted them! Here’s what’s on my roster in the coming weeks:

Corn and tomato bread salad

This is the perfect picnic salad. You can make it ahead of time, it feeds a huge crowd, it’s inexpensive, and it’s SO DELICIOUS. Sweet corn, juicy tomatoes, and toasted bread soaking up all of that tangy vinaigrette. It’s sort of amazing and entirely summer.

Easy slow cooker pulled pork

Until I can grill chicken on my NYC terrace (haha…right), this pulled pork will have to do. Luckily, it’s really easy to make and incredibly delicious. Juicy, savory, sweet, and perfect piled atop potato rolls. 

Lazy poached salmon

Salmon this time of year (Copper River or Sockeye) is too good to cover up with a heavily flavored sauce or spice rub. Simply poach it in this simple white wine broth until the outside is opaque and the interior is velvety and pink. Serve it with tartar sauce and boiled potatoes for the perfect brunch dish. 

Gazpacho

I’ve already made this several times and man, it never disappoints. Spicy, refreshing, and so light that you actually feel virtuous eating it. I even made it once without the lengthy freezing process and it was almost as good as the long way of doing things.

No recipe crumble

The stone fruit is amazing right now, as are the blackberries and raspberries. Go crazy and leave the measurements at home. If you’re really scandalous, add some white chocolate chips to the crumble. Your thighs may not thank me, but your tastebuds will.
