Summer is a great time to take a break from rushed weeknight dinners and spend some time in the kitchen, with my cookbooks. I’ve been diving into my cookbook collection to prepare favorite dishes and to try some new recipes. When our garden is ready, I’ll choose recipes featuring home grown tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, cucumbers, carrots, peppers, and radishes.
Yesterday, for a holiday barbecue, I made a pasta salad with sun-dried tomatoes, green olives, and arugula. The recipe was from one of my most favorite and reliable cookbooks, The Complete Vegetarian Cookbook published by America’s Test Kitchen.
