letter from allrecipes

A LITTLE BIT SUMMER and a little bit fall! It’s time to make the most of summer’s final weeks before exhaling and breathing deep as we welcome fall. May we suggest… • Make some memories and enjoy a sunny day poolside (even if the pool is only imagined) with a light and easy menu (page 12). Or gather in the backyard for a movie night starring root beer floats and hot dogs (page 89). • Try some new ways to serve a favorite fruit: grapes. They are incredibly versatile (page 21). • “Travel” to the Mediterranean with recipes featuring end-of-summer produce that is full of flavor and good for you (page 37). • Bake some fall sweet treats—favorites from the Allrecipes community (page 49). • Catch up with a few of our Allstar community members. We…

next-level heat hatch a plan

SALSA SHAKE-UP Hatch chiles are getting top billing in more salsas these days, including this one from 505 Southwestern. Look for labels that mention “Hatch chile” or “green chile from Hatch Valley” for a true taste of the New Mexico terroir and climate that make these chiles special. SMOKY SNACKS Savory snacks—such as sunflower seeds, chips, jerky, and smoked meats—get a unique kick from Hatches. Duke’s Smoked Shorty Sausages, shown here, wed diced, roasted Hatch green chiles with seasoned pork for a dynamite snack. RUBS with a KICK Ground dried Hatch chiles bring smoky heat to any meat rub. You can sub Hatch chile powder for cayenne or other chile powders in your favorite rub recipe or try a ready-made blend like Paulita’s Hatch Green Chile Seasoning, which does the work for you.…

grape expectations

THE glories OF GRAPES 1. In addition to headlining the recipes on pages 26 and 28, grapes are great grilled. Try skewering multicolor grapes, grilling 2 minutes per side, and serving with your main dish. 2. Their seeds are edible (once you get past the bitterness and crunch) and full of antioxidants. 3. For a cool treat, freeze rinsed and dried grapes in a single layer at least 2 hours. 4. For a fresh twist on salsa, chop grapes, red onion, cilantro, and a small jalapeño, then sprinkle with lime juice. THE POWER of GRAPES Grapes do more than look great on a cheese board. They’re also incredibly good for you: • Antioxidants in grapes help fight aging and inflammation, and are linked to better memory and learning. • Their natural melatonin may help you get a good…

cooks to follow: update

“We love our new home city of Chicago and can’t wait to see all that’s in store for us here.”– NAOMI NAOMI & RENAN Naomi and Renan Geara Lopes have been very busy since we featured them 18 months ago. They moved to Chicago for Naomi’s job in the tech and data-analytics sphere, and Renan soon after was hired as executive chef of Spirit Elephant, a restaurant with elevated vegan fare on Chicago’s North Shore. Renan has loved the challenge of creating approachable and elegant vegan cuisine, while Naomi has dug in on her baking skills (homemade croissants are next, she says). “We’ve also gotten our own first dog: Shadow, a giant schnauzer. That’s him at right, above the recent snapshot of us.” RENAN & NAOMI’S FAVE AUTUMN RECIPE? Okinawa Shoyu Pork ( BRITTANEY BUNJONG A…
