What's Cooking This Weekend?

Weekend of August 20-21, 2011

What's hanging out in your kitchen, waiting for its turn in a salad, or in the frying pan? Bright yellow squash? Rich red tomatoes? I'm eyeing an overgrown zucchini and thinking zucchini fritters, or maybe some walnut-studded bread. What about you? What's cooking in your kitchen this weekend? Read on for a few good posts from the past week that you may have missed, too...

• How to identify real San Marzano tomatoes and avoid contaminated honey.

• Mmmm... homemade gum drops!

Happy weekend, and happy cooking.
