Many thanks to those of you who left comments about “Always in Season”. It’s a lovely book and I’m happy to be sending my copy to Marjorie Lewis! Marjorie, please email me or message me on Facebook with your address and I’ll get it right out to you. Enjoy!
I’ve been making a lot of old favorites lately. I thought that for those of you who haven’t been with me long, you might want to take a peek at these. If you have been reading Mignardise for a while, then…
1. YOU ARE TOTALLY AWESOME
2. You may have forgotten about these delicious ideas. I often get so busy trying new recipes that old favorites are ignored.
Almost every week for the past month, I’ve cooked up a batch of Roasted Ratatouille. I love this like you wouldn’t believe. All the vegetables get soft and caramelized and it’s crazy good. It’s great right out of the oven with a sprinkle of Parmesan, or over pasta or pearl couscous. It’s delicious at room temperature all by itself or spread on a crostini.
While I can still get my favorite Sungold tomatoes at the farmers’ market, I’m making roasted cherry tomato sauce. It’s a cinch and full of sunny flavor. I’m planning to freeze a couple of batches so I can have a taste of summer later in the year.
This tomatillo salsa is always hit when I bring it to a party. It’s worth taking the time to grill the vegetables. Last time I made it I also grilled some corn on the cob and added it to the salsa. An excellent idea, if I do say so myself.
Twice now I’ve made this Peach and Blueberry Coffee Cake that is absolutely my new favorite. I have no photos of it (but I do have one on the freezer for later!), but please do visit Eat the Love for the recipe and lots of stunning photography.
Bloggers everywhere are already going crazy for anything pumpkin flavored, but I’m not there yet. I’m still enjoying the bounty of summer and I’ll only give it up when absolutely forced to.
Which might be as soon as next week, In which case, I’ll be whipping up Pumpkin Blondies for sure.
‘Til then, enjoy the sunny days, the cool nights and some old Mignardise favorites.
