July's Must-Try Food Guide
Homemade Magic Shell
The DIY version of this classic ice cream topping is surprisingly easy to make (all you need are coconut oil and semi-sweet chocolate chips), and tastes just like a dipped cone from the truck on the corner, minus the alkali and soy lecithin.
If you're growing zucchini, you're probably familiar with their abundant but delicate flowers (which are also available at farmer's markets now). It's best to pick or buy the yellow-and-orange blossoms and eat them the same day, since they wilt quickly. While the most common--and arguably tastiest--way to serve them is to stuff the long, narrow blooms with cheese and fry them, they're also excellent baked, or incorporated into pasta dishes, quesadillas or soup.
Kebabs a la You
Whether beef, chicken or shrimp, food threaded onto skewers and cooked over charcoal is one of the easiest summer meals. This kebab generator will help you set up 3 grilling stations--for high-protein foods; fruits and vegetables; and marinades and seasonings--where anyone can create their own personalized dinner-on-a-stick.
If you've ever had corn chips with a "hint of lime," you know how well the two go together; add the fiery flavor from the grill, and the result is heaven. The chefs at Num Pang, a Cambodian sandwich shop with two New York City locations, combine the three in a wildly popular, grilled, tangy corn on the cob, made with spicy chili mayo, a sprinkling of coconut flakes and fresh lime wedges.
