Chef’s snack

My new favorite quick dinner is this:

Cous cous (made with butter, salt, and a little za’atar if you have it)
Feta cheese
Crispy kale and/or cucumber and tomatoes (if in season)
Cashews or pistachios
Fried egg

I was describing this to a friend, and she said anything with a fried egg on top is called a “chef’s snack.” I’m not sure how widespread that terminology is, but I’m borrowing it!

Mango juice pop on the deck

Other things I’ve made recently: tahini cookies from Jerusalem, applesauce from some slightly bruised Granny Smith apples, mango juice pops (in an ice cube tray with popsicle sticks; when this batch runs out I’m going to take another mom’s suggestion and freeze yogurt-fruit smoothie the same way. Voila, frozen breakfast on a stick!). Ben made cranberry-orange scones for Teacher Appreciation Week, and key lime pie is in the near future.

What are your favorite summer recipes?

  1. I love that photo! I am definitely a fan of key lime pie. It is my go-to dessert, and not just in the summer. One of my favorite summer recipes is a wheatberry salad, with corn, tomato, basil, and feta, plus olive oil and balsamic vinegar. It’s a crowd favorite.
