Turntable Kitchen’s Summer Recipe Roundup

In the peak of summer, I allow myself to buy entirely too much produce. My house fills with corn and berries, sweet and spicy peppers, and the ultimate summer fruit — watermelon. Even when the fog overtakes San Francisco, I find myself cooking with the season. I often start noticing more stains on my clothes from the juicy peaches and ripe heirloom tomatoes that explode with seemingly every bite. While we’re still savoring a few more days in Sicily, I wanted to share some of my favorite summer recipes from the Turntable Kitchen archives. This collection reminds me of everything I love about summer: sun-kissed skin, finding sand in the cracks of your bag and cell phone, picnics, road trips, the 4th of July, beers on the porch, the smell of bonfires, dresses, and outdoor eating. Enjoy, and see you all soon!

1. Grilled Watermelon Salad

    I was just revisiting that focaccia recipe in Canal House yesterday, thinking it would make a great summer bread alongside all of the salads I’ve been making! I’ll take this as a sign that that’s right on. Enjoy the rest of your travels, Kasey! xo.

    It may not be summer here (officially yes, but my eyes tell me otherwise!), but these recipes and gorgeous pictures bring me right into the summer mood:)

  • Happy Summer! I’ll take each of these, please!

  • Pulling together this roundup was a great reminder for me to revisit all of these recipes! Thank you so much, Jess! We just returned and I’m slowly, slowly, making my way back into real life. xo

  • Thanks, Denise! I’m glad the roundup made it feel like summer, even if it’s not where you are 🙂

  • Happy summer to you, friend!
