As we reach the end of May and the start of the summer season, I’m rounding up some of my favorite recipes for this time of year.

  • Pantry Pasta – When I’m running low on inspiration, a version of this always finds it’s way on to my stove. Ancient Foods olives are a great addition here, but capers would work well too, and its the ideal recipe for early season cherry tomatoes.
  • Slow Cooker Creamy Kale – It may not seem like the right time of year for a crock pot, but this is a great recipe to make while you’re working from home with the beautiful kale from Garners!
  • Sheet Pan Salmon – Meals that require the fewest dishes possible are a personal favorite of mine, and the spare list of ingredients means that every in the recipe gets a chance to sign, especially the salmon. Don’t forget to pre-order from Cold Country so you get just the cut you’re looking for!
  • Pork and Asparagus Stir-fry – Another dish that’s easy to whip together after a day of homeschooling, conference calls, and generally trying to keep the trains running on time. *If pork isn’t your thing, substitute ground turkey to tofu!
