Pacific Rim Glazed Flank Steak: Flank steak is a cheap cut of meat that loves a good marinade. This one is glazed with teriyaki and tangy citrus. Honey helps the whole thing caramelize into a glorious crust.

The Best Use of a Wine-Poached Peach: Poaching peaches in wine will preserve the fruit and create a tasty, complex peach-infused syrup. But be careful! Eating too much tipsy summer peach pudding might make you tipsy.

Leftover Rice Cure: Shrimp fried rice is a classic that won't let you down. The straight-up, traditional fried rice hits all the right notes: ginger, carrot, garlic, and scallions.

Make Use of the Cherry Bounty: This pork chops with cherry sauce recipe yields a well-rounded sauce that is acidic, bold, and not too sweet.

Painless Pasta: Pasta with arugula and tomatoes is bare bones but delicious. Barely cooked tomatoes stay bright and sugary; arugula adds a bitter punch; and red pepper flakes give the dish some heat.

Black and Blue: Joyce Carol's black and blue pie is a simple, summery combination of blueberries and blackberries inside a flaky crust.
