What To Cook This Weekend


August is here. The green markets and farm stands teeming with fresh fruits and vegetables. Here are some great recipes to make use of that bounty.

Summer Pizza with Salami, Zucchini, and Tomatoes

It’s a pizza. It’s a salad. It’s…a pizza with a huge salad on top of it. Who can argue?

Tomatoes and Haricots Verts with Anchovies

This time anchovies are not optional. They’re an integral ingredient here, and it’s worth seeking out quality brands. We love the oil-packed ones from Ortiz, Agostino Recca, and Merro.

Fresh Corn Quiche

A great Sunday Brunch entree can be made year round using frozen corn.

Epi Classic Blueberry Muffins

Our ultimate muffins are chock-full of blueberries and have just the right amount of sweetness, plus a gentle tang and tender crumb thanks to sour cream. A dusting of coarse sugar gives them a shimmery top with an addictive crunch.

Grilled Brisket with Scallion-Peanut Salsa

Normally, you associate brisket with long, slow cooking—maybe on a winter afternoon—but we’re making a case for throwing it on the grill. Hear us out, because it works, especially with this peanut topping. The only thing wintry: Freezing the brisket makes it easier to slice it against the grain, which nullifies its naturally ropy texture and exposes more surface area to the flavorful marinade.

Classic Tomato Toast with Mayonnaise and Chives

Let the flavors of perfect summer tomatoes shine on this simple-is-best toast.
