End of Summer Recipe Roundup

As Summer draws to a close, your local farmer's market is getting ready to slow down or shut down operations. If you're looking for zucchini, eggplant, basil, or summer fruits and veggies for your skillet based or oven based recipes, then now is the time. For a short while, you still have options before pumpkin season begins. Here are some must-try methods to make sure you've drained every drop of summer from your kitchen. 



Start your End of Summer party off right with a Frosé, or frozen rosé. All you need is your favorite rosé, some sugar, strawberries, and lemon juice. Make sure you pick a dark-colored wine so that it doesn't lose too much color when freezing.

Grilled Corn with Basil Butter

Corn is a great summer snack or side. However, it is much harder to find once summer ends. Make sure you add this recipe to your list as it's easy and flavorful. All you need is corn, olive oil, salt, butter, and basil. Cook on the grill for best results!

Summer Gazpacho

From the creators at bon appetit, this meal is perfect for a night in during summer. It starts with heirloom tomatoes and includes a whole list of summer vegetables that will have your taste buds in overdrive. As one of the more straightforward recipes on this list, you save time by not having to cook!

Pickle Dogs

It might sound strange, but these hotdogs are a summer must-try. As you'd expect, you're going to need hot dogs and pickles. However, you're also going to need cream cheese, cheddar, chives, pepper, oil, as well as toppings. Use an Almond Home Skillet to cook your hot dogs inside or take to the grill outside if the weather is beautiful. 

Strawberries & Angel Food Ice Cream

If the pickle hot dogs left a strange taste in your mouth, then it's time to sweeten it up! Make with real angel food cake and strawberries. This soft ice cream is perfect for the final hot days of summer. Feel free to double or even triple the recipe based on the needs of your party! 

Son of a Peach Donut Cupcakes

The Domestic Rebel has a great thing going when it comes to dessert. These donut cupcakes might be the most creative mixing of cake based confections we've seen in a while. Prepare your peaches and your cupcake pan and get to work!

Hawaiian Marinated Flank Steak

We've talked a lot about smaller meals and desserts. However, summer is also a time for the meat-eaters of the world to have a feast. This summer flank steak is perfect for people who love a little pineapple in their meals. Head by the butcher to start this meal right with about two pounds of flank steak, skirt steak, or rib-eye.

Lobster Bisque

While lobster bisque is usually a complicated affair, this recipe makes it simple and cheap. Make sure you have low-sodium seafood stock for the best flavor. In addition, you're going to use dry white wine to add the characteristics needed. In addition to the liquid, you're going to need a whole host of meats and vegetables to complete the meal so head over to your supermarket or farmer's market now!

Charred Bread with Ricotta and Cherry Salsa

Cherry salsa has many uses. For example, on a tasty slab of ricotta and charred bread. However, the meat-eaters that have enjoyed the past few recipes might think about adding it to a pork roast for flavor. In addition, add it to a food processor for a vinaigrette you can add to greens and salads.

Fried Mozzarella, Basil and Nectarine Stacks with Balsamic Glaze

Last but not least, these skilled fried mozzarella stacks will have you wondering how to eat something so pretty. We think it's easy, simply dig in. Start this recipe with an Almond Home skillet. Of course, you'll also need the ingredients which include balsamic vinegar, cayenne pepper, basil, nectarines, and mozzarella, among other things.
