Old Friends

Some Barefoot Contessa recipes are too good not to repeat.

Peach ice cream, for example, is just begging to be made from the loads of fresh peaches right now. I discovered something new this year, too – you don’t *really* have to strain anything before chilling it, especially if you don’t mind little bits of peach in your ice cream. We think they taste pretty good anyway.

Spaghetti aglio e olio is one of our favorite quick dinners in any season, and we can usually make it with whatever we already have in the kitchen. It’s perfect with some grilled or sauteed vegetables, when you really don’t know what else to do with that zucchini or broccolini that’s threatening to take over your CSA box or garden.

I happen to think that buttermilk ranch dressing made from scratch is the most perfect dip or dressing for fresh greens and crisp vegetables. Bonus: it uses the rest of a container of buttermilk from when I make these pancakes.

What are your summer favorites?
