Meals Fresh from the Farmers Market!

Hello, hello,

I’m not a big TikTok person, but this summer I’ve dipped into it a few times, and international TikTok drama aside, I’ve found myself amused on more than a few occasions. This lady—this lady I love; if you have innocent ears nearby wait until you are alone to push play. I think if any of you are suffering from cooking fatigue you will relate to her deeply. I also just wrote wrote this article about how our Corona Cooking has evolved over the past months; we are all surely still cooking more . . . but also leaning toward the drawer with the take out menus. 
However, this is pretty much the peak moment for produce, and we’d be fools to miss it. The only way to describe how I feel when I see the the piles of colorful fruit and vegetables at farmers markets and even just the old supermarket is plain old greedy. If you show me gorgeous peaches at $0.99 a pound know that I will be stuffing a few bags full. I think I really need to figure out how to be better at preserving produce because my eyes are bigger than my stomach, and unless all of you are coming over for lunch (outdoors, please), it's all going to go bad.
Here’s how to put some of that peerless summer produce to excellent use.   Please tell me what you make—I love hearing and seeing. And since I’m among friends, I’d love to ask you to comment and rate any recipes that have wowed you on The opportunity to rate recipes is fairly new, and I’d truly appreciate some five-star love if you’re feeling it.
But first, hit that farmers market!
This is the first thing I think of when I bring home a bunch of gorgeously ripe late-summer tomatoes. Use only perfectly ripe tomatoes. While you can use any color tomato, there is something about red tomato bruschetta that speaks to me and mine. Or try Bruschetta with Herbed Whipped Ricotta and Heirloom Tomatoes, where a simple herby ricotta is slathered under slices of ripe tomatoes in a perfect summer appetizer or snack. People will not stop talking about this simple little dish.

If there's anything nicer to nibble with a glass of wine at the end of the summer, I can't think of what that would be. Another appetizer people will remember lovingly after the summer has faded away.

Use more than one color bell pepper to amp up the stunning factor of this easy grilled dinner.

The perfectly pretty salad to make with those perfectly pretty zucchini. This is basically you and a vegetable peeler having a little moment in the kitchen, and then a simple vinaigrette turns all of those strips into the cleanest of side dishes.

These are really stunning piled on a platter, with cubes of tender beef speared among layers of colorful vegetables.
