Late summer is one of our favorite times of year, food-wise — locally grown produce has been vine-ripening under the hot sun until veggies are literally bursting with flavor. After all, who can resist a ruby-red tomato or a tender stalk of asparagus, picked at the moment of perfection?
To capitalize on the savory pleasures of the growing season, the local cooking/blogging duo of Katherine and Ken from Two Bites At a Time whipped up homemade crostatas — a cross between a pizza and a calzone — and they're sharing the recipes. This week, you can learn to make a potato-prosciutto-manchego cheese version; next week, they're unveiling a tomato-asparagus-shiitake mushroom option (just typing that made us hungry!). Click over to the site for the first full recipe, and stay tuned next week for the veggie follow-up. (Two Bites At a Time)
