The Cookstr Weekly: Effortless Labor Day Recipes

September 14, 2015
   Featured Recipe: Mixed Berry Crumble by Jennifer Katzinger


The end of the summer is a bittersweet time. Goodbye to long, late dinners and sunlight stretching well into evenings. Hello to turning leaves and a chill in the air and, just out of reach, a whiff of pumpkin and cinnamon on the way.

Make this last long weekend count with recipes that celebrate summer in all its effortless glory. Enjoy the ripest tomatoes and the most succulent summer squash just as they are meant to be served: with very little done to them. We’ll be dreaming up ways to liven up root vegetables soon enough.

Warmest regards,

 “This is one of those great dishes that you can really make your own by using whatever vegetables are in season – it’s particularly nice with broad beans (fava beans), asparagus or little halved cherry tomatoes. The fish doesn’t take long to cook, so you can blanch your veg accordingly and then finish them off in the tray with the fish. It makes life a lot easier if you’re cooking for the family or a large group of friends.

We all know that slow cookers are a great way to make delicious, hands-off dinners. But have you ever used one to make a cheesecake, or bread pudding?  


Bacon lovers will go crazy for these gooey, rich dessert bars. I was inspired to create something sweet and savory after recalling a delicious Bacon Maple Donut I enjoyed while at a book event in Portland, Oregon. These sticky bars are guaranteed to satisfy any sweet tooth and bacon craving. – Kelly DiPucchio
