Country Cooking Summer Style

15 comments:
 Markets are loaded with the best of summer fruit and 
veggies right now

Usually I decide what to cook for dinner 
 based on what I haul in from the garden...
it really has changed how I cook 
(weird but true)
 herbs and lots of them
and usually an odd assortment of 
squash, onion and eggplant 
 beets or some other root or big green thing
(note to self...be more specific)

 while a squash and pickle don't seem to work 
just pick 'em
and get on with it...
no need to argue about it right now



  I love the shapes and colors 


food photography is pretty darn fun
(note to self..you are not a food photographer...bummer)


 but lets cook some dessert...or better yet 
lets have dessert for dinner

  no need to worry about a centerpiece...
summer flowers are everywhere

 enjoy a little slice of summer heaven this weekend like this 
crostata
with peaches and blueberries
 this is Ina Gartens basic crostata recipe 
found here

 the peaches are from our trees 
and the blueberries came from my local market
(AKA Vons) yes I love and hate my Vons




 we had some guests over 
so I thought I should pretty it up 
(ice cream is good)


 geranium blossoms, raspberries and blueberries
and I tucked a bit of lemon slices in there...
can't any one ever leave here with out a lemon under their pillow!!!

guess not!

 sending lots of 
 summer
lemony  love 

eat well

  8. K- your peach dessert is a dream. What a nice presentation. I love to eat, but hate to prepare- so much to do w/ the kids, etc. Your garden produce looks so healthy and wholesome. Makes me want to have a big salad!

  9. Me too! Love photographing food that is. Beautiful post. I just finished stewing tomatoes for the freezer. Never done that before but surely I can use them in spaghetti and soup and such this winter.
