Cool As A Cucumber

Summer is heating up, and local cucumbers are in our gardens and markets in abundance. It’s time to cool off with some old fashioned cucumber recipes.

Let’s Have Cake!

It’s my birthday today, so cake is on my mind. I just did a search on ReciFoto, and there are hundreds and hundreds of cake recipes. People like cake. My own personal favorite is kind of birthday cake is chocolate, but as long as the cake is shared with people I love, it really doesn’t matter what kind it is.

A couple of years ago I bought a box of recipe cards that included a bunch from Rockwood’s Chocolate Bits, which is now defunct. Think of chocolate bits as the equivalent of chocolate chips. Their factory is now lofts for hipsters in Brooklyn, I think. But the recipe cards are pretty cool. The other two recipes were from a book that my mom and other members of her generation in our family used to make birthday cakes for us when we were little. Enjoy!

Hello Zucchini

Zucchini are taking our local farmers market by storm. Here’s a fun zucchini fact: they are actually a fruit, but we usually treat them as a vegetable. Perhaps, this dual nature is what accounts for zucchini’s culinary versatility. You can make an entire multi-course meal centered around zucchini, including, soup, salad, bread, sides, entrees, and dessert. Here’s a small sample of the vast trove of zucchini recipes you can find on the ReciFoto app.
