The brilliance and heat of Summer makes it my favorite time of the year. Even food tastes better on summer days when tomatoes pop with sweetness and grilled steaks sizzle with richness. As we approach the season that offers fresh abundance, savor every day with great meals and sunshine. Get lots of ideas from Dana Slatkin's new book: Summertime Anytime, inspired by her family's sea-side hotel, Shutters on the Beach. With recipes for: sweet corn chowder, cucumber gazpacho, plum tomato soup and iced nougat with honey and figs, your August days will be splashing with yumminess. Available at Amazon.com.
