It’s the season of backyard barbecues, long summer nights, potlucks, and ALL the fresh produce. Here are a couple of things to cook in July!

Blueberries

It’s blueberry season and the bushes are bursting. July is when blueberry season really picks up steam so now’s the perfect time to eat blueberries out of hand and make some sweet treats.

Jordan Marsh’s famous blueberry muffins are famous for a reason. I’m completely obsessed with the cake-y texture, tall domes, and crunchy sugared tops.

These mini blueberry galettes with pistachio are perfect with ice cold creamy vanilla ice cream, especially when the galettes are still warm. Kind of like blueberry pie, but even easier!

Blueberry buttermilk pancakes are what summer brunches are all about. Give me a giant plate with a bowl of maple syrup for dipping and I’ll eat these guys like chips and dip :P

Cucumbers

Nothing says summer quite the cool refreshing crunch of a cucumber. Cucumbers are delicious as is, but they can also be the star of all your summer salads!

Hello creamy, cooling, cucumber-full tzatziki! Great for scooping up with pitas, on meats or fish, or even using cucumbers to scoop up all that goodness.

Peaches

Millions of peaches, peaches for me, millions of peaches, peaches for free! Well, not for free, but is there anything better that a sun-ripened peach, still warm from the tree, juicy and full of summer sweetness? SO GOOD.

A peachy summer forward salad full of all the good stuff: juicy peaches, melon, burrata, ham, basil, and some seeds for crunch.

Cinnamon-y soft baked peaches topped off with a crisp and crunch pistachio caramel crumble. Is peach pistachio caramel crumble the dessert of the summer? I might have to say yes, especially if there’s ice cream too :)

Tomatoes

Tomatoes just taste best in summer, am I right?

Apparently I’m in love with tomatoes and burrata because this salad has both! Plus some blistered shishitos for a bit of fun. Any salad that has giant toasted croutons is a salad for me!

Alright, that’s all for now! Happy July and happy all the summer produce!
