Chill out with your favorite white wines before fall arrives
It’s a time to chill out with your favorite whites before starting to watch the leaves turn color.
Wow — what a difference in styles with three sauvignon blancs, three chardonnays, and a solo pinot blanc, from big and buttery to fragrant and crisp. It’s a time to chill out with your favorite whites before starting to watch the leaves turn color.
The Franciscan sauvignon blanc and the Hahn pinot gris are also great buys.
2011 Robert Mondavi Oakville fume blanc ($16). Lots of apricot skin tastes. Crisp, but not as severe as in Marlborough Country. The iconic wine seems to continue a move toward the more austere side of sauvignon blanc.
2012 Waterstone Napa Valley sauvignon blanc ($19). Simple wine, with green, slightly chalky flavors and a little flabby. Pleasant, but no complexity.
2012 Franciscan Napa Valley sauvignon blanc ($16). This is a very refreshing wine with a clean blend of peaches and kiwi fruit flavors and a crisp and fresh finish.
2011 Paul Hobbs "Ulises Valdez" Russian River chardonnay ($83) A classic 1990’s-style California chard with lots of buttery and sharp oak on the nose, remindful of David Bruce. After opening, it has pineapple and citrus juiciness, but still splintery oak in the finish. Although I like the style and weight (14.3 percent alcohol), the sharp wood tends to overpower the fruit.
2013 CrossBarn by Paul Hobbs Sonoma Coast chardonnay ($27). Lively flavors of tropical fruit and vanilla and just a little custardy. Rounded and rich and long on the palate. Will improve with moderate aging.
2011 Chappellet Napa Valley chardonnay ($33). Big Napa chard with butter and toffee flavors and light sweetness. It’s a bit big to take a back seat to most entrees, so probably better to drink with some cheeses or other appetizers.
2012 Hahn Monterey pinot gris ($14). Quite fragrant and elegant, mindful of a good viognier. Full body, but crisp stone fruit flavors. Great to sip on.

Vegan Roasted Poblano Corn Chowder
When I returned home sick from our trip to Asia last month I laid on the couch eating nothing but boxed soup and toast for almost an entire week. It was the first time I’ve been sick like that in almost seven years and it seriously knocked me on my arse.
Eventually I worked up the energy to put away the boxed stuff and get back to recipe testing my own soup. After a couple of trials, this Roasted Poblano Corn Chowder was the first thing I came up with. It’s actually been on my to-make list since last summer when I shared the Copycat Chipotle Corn Salsa. The roasted poblanos are everything in that salsa and I knew they would taste incredible in a creamy corn chowder.
The recipe calls for fresh corn which I rarely eat because of a bond on my front tooth. If that thing broke off it would not be cute, trust me. But in this case fresh corn is worth the extra trouble because the texture is so much better than frozen.
Between cutting the kernels off the cobb and roasting the poblanos, it’s not the fastest of recipes but it’s one delicious way to say goodbye to summer and welcome the crisp fall evenings.
I personally find roasting them and peeling off the skin to be fun but if you’re in a pinch for time, you easily substitute green chilis!
How to Cook Eggs in Skillet?
For this recipe, timing is everything as you want to cook the egg whites until they are set while the egg yolks are still runny.
However, you want to keep the Parmesan cheese golden brown and not burned.
The secret is to cover the skillet with its lid, so the hot steam would help set the egg whites in a few short minutes, and the Parmesan cheese won&rsquot get burn.
Remember to turn off the heat as the egg whites are almost set, as the remaining heat in the skillet will continue to cook the egg whites even when the heat source is turned off.
Try my recipes and I will guarantee you that you actually do look forward to waking up in the morning.
Say goodbye to the SNOOZE button and say hello to these new eggs in your life!
2 tablespoons finely chopped basil leaves
1/4 cup Mixed Herb Pesto (see below) or favorite pesto
Whole basil leaves, for garnish
1. Preheat an oven to 425 F. In a large roasting pan, place the eggplant, onion, peppers and thyme. Drizzle with the olive oil and toss to coat well. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes or until the vegetables are beginning to soften, stirring halfway through.
2. Add the mushrooms, garlic, crushed tomatoes, and salt and pepper to the pan, and toss to mix well. Return to the oven and roast for a further 10 to15 minutes, or until the tomatoes have started to break down, stirring halfway through.
3. Add the zucchini, parsley and basil to the pan, toss, and return to the oven for a further 8 to10 minutes, or until the zucchini is tender. Remove from the oven and taste for seasoning.
4. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the mixture to a heated serving dish or platter, leaving the excess liquid behind. Stir in the mixed herb pesto, garnish with a few whole basil leaves, and serve immediately.

My Second favorite way to use up watermelon is by making popsicles! Popsicles are a huge trend right now, and I have to say, I’m not opposed!
This recipe is super easy if you have popsicle molds because it only requires watermelon, sugar and lime juice. You put it all in a blender and then pour it in the molds to freeze, simple as that! If you want to make it a boozy pop, just add your favorite vodka. The sugar will help it freeze! Click here to see the original recipe.

My third recipe was made for us at our Wrangler baby shower and it was amazing! I was happily eating leftovers for a couple days!

It has a few more ingredients which makes it a little more difficult for using up what you have left of that watermelon, but it is worth it! This recipe includes cucumbers, red onions, watermelon, salt & pepper, cilantro, feta, and lime juice. Click here to see the recipe.

Hold on to summer a bit longer with our 10 most popular recipes of the season
There are a lot of reasons to be wistful at the end of summer — at least the metaphorical end, if not the meteorological one. Say goodbye to long days, afternoons at the pool and less busy commutes. It’s all rather fleeting, isn’t it? Well, if you’re hoping to convert at least a little bit of that summer magic into some lasting memories, and meals, let’s take a look back at our most popular recipes of the summer. Starting with No. 10 …
10. Classic Barbecue Chicken, above at top right. Here’s a fitting dish to break out for the long holiday weekend. A delicious from-scratch sauce, juicy meat — you couldn’t ask for much else.
9. Rainbow Sprinkle Icebox Cake. Even if it’s not anyone’s birthday, there’s always some reason to celebrate with this stunning, delicious no-bake treat.
8. Curried Chickpea Salad Sandwiches, above at bottom right. You’ve probably come across a curried chicken salad, but chickpeas? We love this riff from Food editor Joe Yonan, which is bright in flavor and color.
7. Fresh Tomato Sauce. There’s still plenty of time left in tomato season to make this no-fuss, fast (less than an hour!) sauce. Make a bunch and freeze the bounty to enjoy during the winter.
6. Shells With Bacon, Zucchini and Sweet Onion. If you’re looking for an even lighter pasta topping than the red sauce above, consider this unique combination.
5. Summer Fruit Crumble. Soft, sweet fruit. Crunchy, buttery topping. Yes, it’s a pure delight, so what are you waiting for?
4. Sweet Cream Ice Cream Base. We adore this no-egg recipe from Jeni Britton Bauer of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. Use it to make any flavor you want, and yes, the corn syrup, cornstarch and cream cheese are important to its fabulous texture.
3. Corn, Radish, Tomato and Tortilla Chip Salad. Nachos for dinner is awfully tempting, but if the craving strikes and you want something lighter and better for you, this colorful dish is the answer.
2. The Nilsson. This near-zero-proof cocktail from our Spirits writer, M. Carrie Allan, is definitely the epitome of summer, thanks to coconut cream and lime juice.
1. Summer Tomato and Basil Pasta With Pine Nut Sauce. Far and away our most clicked-on recipe of the summer, this dish features a creamy sauce that’s actually nondairy. Instead, pine nuts, lemon juice, salt and olive oil do the trick.
7. Chinese Broccoli with Oyster Sauce
Don&rsquot let the simplicity of this steamed Chinese broccoli with a garlic ginger oyster sauce fool you. It may seem simple, but it&rsquos loaded with flavor.
What makes this dish outrageously delicious is the sauce. It&rsquos not just your typical oyster sauce.
Rather, it&rsquos a medley of oyster sauce, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, Mirin, sesame oil, and sugar. How awesome is that?
And don&rsquot worry if you can&rsquot get a hold of Chinese broccoli. You can definitely swap it with broccolini stems.
