Blueberries are my favorite summer fruit and I'll be eating them until the last sad pint is available. This cake resembles a giant blueberry muffin, but in the best of ways. The crumb is buttery and moist and lightly scented with vanilla. The top of the cake is simply covered in fruit, making sure that each bite is a bit of blueberry bliss.

What ever happened to the lunch hour? What ever happened to taking a break in the middle of the day to pause and refuel? Grabbing a turkey sandwich at your local deli and eating at your desk doesn't count as lunch, and reheating last night's dinner in the office microwave (after cleaning up someone else's tomato soup mess) should really be considered working. So take back your lunch hour. Martinis optional.
Watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew make a refreshing summer dessert.
This summer salad pairs ripe peaches and salty feta.
This rustic tart has a yogurt based crust and a simple topping of goat cheese, zucchini, and thyme.
In my opinion, the best party favors are edible party favors. A few nibbles of a home-cooked treat is perfect way for your guests to remember all good things they ate at the party and, of course, how talented their host is in the culinary arts. So for all you shower-throwers, here are three edible party favors to give away.
