What's Cooking? Good Food for Labor Day

Long weekend ahoy! We are in the thick of setting up a new kitchen (in a new house) so the long weekend is a welcome stretch of time to get ourselves comfortable again. Any good kitchen moving-in tips?

For the rest of us (who hopefully aren't engaged in major home projects) this weekend is probably a time to kick back, relax, and maybe try one of the recent ice cream recipes. What are you eating this Labor Day weekend? Do you have special food plans? Click through for some good eating from this past week plus some favorite late-summer recipes from our archives.
