Lunch today was this crispy rice, pork belly, peach, and cashew mishmash inspired by gemstone @nigelslater. There's a plum version of this recipe on the blog and I want you to make it with all my heart. Recipe ☝🏼🔝. I love you.

If I could encourage you this summer, I'd say: make a fun list, buy an instant camera, carry paints, and make most everyday some sort of adventure, large or small. 💋

Do you remember that episode of Planet Earth where these cliff cats in Siberia were hunting mountain goats across impossibly steep rocks? The cat won. The goat lost. Remember? Well I climbed a generous 7 feet up onto a rock in Colorado and have mad respect for those cats. (They're probably not called mountain cats and I might be wrong about the Siberia part too but you catch my drift.) Thanks for the 📷 and the tourniquet (jk): @bravenewwords.

Let's get a shrimp boil on the stove this summer! I'm filling this enamel cast iron pot from the @Macys Martha Stewart Collection with corn, shrimp, potatoes, and a major amount of spice. From simmering away on the stovetop to serving at the table, this dish is perfect for a small summer gathering. Time to CelebrateSummer. Recipe in profile. Sponsored

Let's make - Whole 🍋 Strawberry Sorbet - Start by coarsely chopping a whole lemon. Peel, pith - all. Remove as many of the seeds as you can. Place the lemon chunks in a food processor fitted with a blade attachment. It's fine, everything is going to be great. Add 2 cups of sugar. Whirl until the mixture is well combined and mostly smooth. Pour the sugary lemon mixture into a medium bowl. Great! Without washing the bowl, add two pounds of strawberries, hulled and lightly chopped if they're giant. You can also use frozen 🍓s that are mostly thawed. Whirl until completely smooth, removing any bits of strawberry that are stubborn and don't want to blend. Pour the strawberry mixture into the lemon mixture. Add a dash of Campari or gin or nothing at all, but add a little something because why not!?. Freeze in an ice cream maker until thick and frozen through. Spoon into a freezer container and chill in the freezer for at least 4 hours. Easy breezy 🍓cones! Recipe from @food52. More ice cream making tips in the link 🔝.

We're halfway through the year which has me thinking of the hundreds of cups of coffee, eighty-something true crime podcasts, fifty-something recipes tested, twenty-something flights around the country, the dozens of doughnuts eaten, the two weddings, and the one Over Easy brunch book (and it's corresponding egg video adventures @bonappetitmag). How has the first half of your year felt? Here's to a strong second half! 💪🏼💋 jtbovereasy

My dad was proud to tell me that this cactus is older than I am- that he's had it since his first apartment on Clemson Street. I told him that, growing up, I used to poke grapes onto the cactus and let them dry in the sun until they turned to raisins- until the dog found my cactus raisin stash and ate them all, which must have been painful. He asked me where I learned to make raisins. I said, probably pbs. Then we went inside feeling content and understood to eat guacamole. Happy 👨🏾🌵 Day!

It's definitely ice cream season here in New Orleans and to celebrate I'm turning bolthousefarms smoothies into ice cream treats! Head over to where I'll be making Berry Boosted Creamy Frozen Yogurt on their stories. It's super decadent and berry swirled and really some of the best frozen yogurt I've made. No biggie. Warm days ahead! Let's enjoy! sponsored

✨ Let’s make Honey Rose Cashew Milk! Start with 1 1/2 cups raw cashews. Soak them in a big bowl of water overnight. Drain the soaking water and keep the softened nuts. ✨ In a blender combine soaked nuts + 4 1/2 cups of water + 3 tablespoons honey + 1 heaping tablespoon dried rose petals + good pinch of sea salt. The 🌹 petals I found in a little pouch @wholefoods. Blend until the nuts are pulverized and the mixture is milky. It’ll be slightly pink too! Bonus. ✨ Strain through a fine mesh strainer lined with cheesecloth. Strain and press the milk through the cheesecloth. Store the milk in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 4 days. ✨ To serve, heat a cup in a small saucepan (or the microwave). Stir with a 3/4 teaspoon of matcha powder, or steep with 1 black tea, or add 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric with a dash of extra honey and coconut oil for a golden milk variation. ✨ Happy Sunday!
