Summer Cooking + a Free Chef’s Set from Grove Collaborative

summer cooking with grove collaborative

Summer is my favorite time of year for cooking — or eating, at the very least. Colorful eggplant, juicy tomatoes, and bright berries from the garden are as delicious as they are nourishing. Everything tastes better al fresco, am I right? 

One thing that I don’t enjoy during the summer: shopping for household essentials. Who wants to run to the store when you could be unwinding outside? And you can't exactly pick up dish soap at the farmer's market. So in the spirit of making everything more enjoyable this summer, let me introduce you to Grove Collaborative. Grove is a subscription service that delivers natural cleaning, home, beauty, and baby products right to your doorstep, on your schedule. It’s like having a brilliant personal assistant who keeps your home stocked up on the essentials while you relax and soak up the sun.

Now let's get cooking! This easy, healthy pesto (adapted from 100 days of real food) is a favorite in our house. It's so fresh and light, plus I love using herbs from our garden. We put it on anything from pasta and veggies to just dipping carrots for a healthy snack.

Next up - garden salsa! This is a new recipe I've tried recently, but I think will become a favorite summertime recipe. Skip the store-bought seasoning packets and make this with fresh ingredients straight from your garden or farmer’s market. And c'mon - salsa goes on everything!
