Walking down the aisles and catching up with my go-to farmers, it’s always inspiring to see the fruits of their labor. Whether it’s perfectly sweet corn or the odd early apple of the season, I always leave excited for the week’s cooking ahead. In this high summer issue, we shined a spotlight on outdoor dining. You’ll find a handful of recipes for the grill master in your life. Nothing says “party” quite like a giant steak, right? The behemoth Reverse-Seared Tomahawk Steak with Chimichurri Sauce (page 47) is a real stunner and shows off a different way to grill thick-cut meats (starting with a low…

classic chicken salad

CHICKEN SALAD is one of those all-purpose foods. It is dainty enough for a Ladies Auxiliary meeting but still manly enough to be served on Saturday afternoons during football season.

He endured endless oohs and aahs as Hannah opened one “girlie present” (as Walt described it) after another. We couldn’t help but laugh! As we ladies socialized and shared stories, Walt always migrated to…
