It is summer! (For my half of the planet, at least.) And I know you have some culinary tricks up your sleeve. Please share with the class your favorite dip concoction, your summer salad secrets — if it were 1994 and I worked at a women’s magazine, that would be on this month’s cover — your hot dog tips and tricks, your pie recipes. Are you making mud pies? Ice cream sandwiches? Margaritas? Are you bringing anything hotly requested to a BBQ this weekend (even if we’re not feeling the most festive)? Please share what you most want to eat from now until Labor Day.
