“This One-Pot Cajun Shrimp and Rice recipe is spicy, satisfying and perfect for busy weeknights! Ready to eat in just 30 minutes.”
This is the ultimate lazy summer dinner. When cherry and sun gold tomatoes are bursting with flavor, slice them and let sit with olive oil and a touch of vinegar. The sweet juices seep out and make an incredible sauce. This is better the longer you can let it sit, but in a pinch you can marinate the tomatoes while you boil the water and cook the pasta. Toss the drained, hot pasta directly into the bowl with the tomatoes and the residual heat from the noodles will gently cook the tomatoes and garlic. This dish is bright, elegant and effortless.
If there’s any reason to turn your oven on this summer, it’s to bake gorgeous summer fruits into show-stopping desserts. Buttery, flaky and crispy, there is nothing better than a crumble or galette fresh from the oven and dripping with sweet fruit juices.

“Apricots and cherries are two stone fruits that have great affinity for each other and for almonds. Even less than perfect apricots will do here, as they will sweeten and their flavor will deepen as they bake.”
“This golden crisp topping is chock-full of oats. Serve with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt, if desired.”
“You’re looking at the quintessential June dessert, perfected by the BA Test Kitchen. This is part of BA’s Best, a collection of our essential recipes.”
“This sensational blueberry pie has small circles cut out of the rye crust, which not only looks dramatic but also allows moisture to evaporate from the fruit filling as it cooks, deepening the flavor.”
“The cake itself is a ginger-pecan cake, with the perfect balance of freshly grated ginger to add a bit of spice and toasted pecans to add a bite of nuttiness. The frosting is a simple affair–basically a creamy, sweet bed on which to rest peaches, with the dark, rich undertones of brown sugar instead of white sugar.”
