What’s in Season in June?

By Elise Bauer Hello June and welcome to month 6 of our Monthly Produce Guide!
With June comes the tail end of spring and the the start of the glorious bountiful summer produce season.
What a month for fruit! Strawberries starting coming in a month ago, and now they are joined by cherries, apricots, and blueberries. It’s the season for tropical fruit as well—pineapples, mangoes, and papaya.
For veggies, we may still find remnants of spring—local asparagus, morels, favas, and sweet peas. The first zucchini of the season arrive, as well as cucumbers, peppers, and even corn. Lettuces abound, along with radishes, carrots, and cauliflower. Continue reading …read more

Pan-Fried Turnips with Thyme and Breadcrumbs

By Erin Alderson When spring hits, it’s easy to get excited about asparagus and strawberries. I get it, I do that too. However, there are some other items that deserve your attention. Take for example, the hakurei turnip. These turnips are a bit more mild in flavor compared to the larger variety- and that goes for both the roots and greens.
While you can eat hakurei turnips raw, these pan-fried turnips deserve a try. I don’t like to overcook them but with a nice char on the outside, the flavor is the best of the raw and the cooked flavor. I tried this recipe …read more

10 Foods Your Dad (Truly) Wants on Father’s Day

Did they want dude food? Did they want something else? Some of the responses are what you might expect – and we’re including a few of those in this round-up as well!—but a few of the answers might surprise you.

Very veggie oat bars

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche My very veggie lentil bake is such a hit that I thought this whole ‘very veggie’ thing could be a bit of a recurring theme here on AYB. Probably a theme that will only recur this once, but still. One batch of these very veggie oat bars contains a whole courgette (zucchini), 3 carrots and 3 spring onions, along with oats, eggs and plenty of grated cheese – all good ingredients to make a good savoury oat bar!

These very veggie oat bars are great for lunch with a dollop of coleslaw and a bit of salad – and they’re tidy …read more

Sweet Cherry Cobbler

By Cindy Rahe As a kid, I ate a lot of cobblers in the summers when visiting my grandparents. We’d spend days picking ripe fruit from the bushes that grew wild in the hills surrounding their home, and bring it home for Grandma to make into cobbler. I think it was my grandma’s go-to dessert because on a warm day, it’s simply easier and quicker to make than pie—no chilling the pastry!

Bourbon Pepper Pan Sauce – Learning a Skill That Always Thrills

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) Mastering pan sauces is one the easiest things a home cook can to do to raise their culinary game, since it allows one to produce dishes most people only see in restaurants. And not just any restaurants. The really good ones. By the way, if you’re still looking for a Father’s Day gift, a nice bottle of bourbon, with a little splash going to finish a home-cooked steak, would make quite the one-two punch of manly goodness. And, even if your dad isn’t a sitcom stereotype, who doesn’t enjoy a well-executed pan sauce? If you’re making this for meat …read more

10 Top Tips for Buying Healthy Snacks for Kids #FoodYouCanTrust

By Grace Hall Feeding kids can be a minefield, especially when it comes to choosing healthy snacks – so often we serve up healthy family meals only to fall down in between meals with less than healthy options at snack time! Over the last few years I’ve been trying to mostly offer my boys healthy snacks like fresh fruit, vegetables and yogurt between meals (check out my post with over 75 healthy snack ideas!), but there’s definitely a place for shop bought snacks too, especially when time is short or we’re out of the house.
With this in mind I’ve got some great tips …read more

How to make a LEGO Snack Plate

By Nick Evans Trust me, I love grilled meats as much as the next dude blogger, but I also want to feed something delicious to my vegetarian friends, and store-bought frozen veggie patties don’t always get the job done. I find so many of them to be under-seasoned and mushy.

Curried Chickpea Bowls with Quinoa

By Erin Alderson I’m sometimes hesitant to share these types of recipes on the site. It could easily be categorized as ‘too simple’ but I’m finding as a busy family, I crave the 20 minute meals. This recipe is a solid start for more involved meals but I find it perfect as-is.
A couple of notes. This recipe isn’t very saucy. I originally made it when I didn’t have coconut milk, only heavy cream. I love a bit of cream but after about 1/3 of a cup, I find things to feel a bit too rich. Of course, this recipe is also perfect with …read more

Indian roasted chickpea flatbreads

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche My pizza roasted chickpeas and nacho roasted chickpeas are two of my all-time favourite recipes (make them make them make them), so I thought I’d make a new version – Indian roasted chickpeas! With a rich, spiced, tomatoey sauce. If I ever used emojis on this blog, I’d put the little guy with hearts in his eyes here.
Rather than eating them on their own this time, I decided to serve them in individual flatbreads (I actually used naan bread to stay on theme!). These Indian roasted chickpea flatbreads make a great lunch or dinner.

The Indian roasted chickpeas themselves are super …read more

Strawberry Ice Cream

By Summer Miller When I was a little girl, the doll Strawberry Shortcake ruled my world. I asked for strawberry ice cream and strawberry cake every year for my birthday. One year, I even had strawberry scented scratch-and-sniff wrapping paper on my presents.
Now that I’m older, I’ve given up dolls, but not my love of strawberries. I grow strawberry plants in my garden, and I eagerly anticipate plucking the sweet berries from them each June. At the top of my strawberry-loving list is ice cream.
