Recipes from the author of the popular Carolina Farmhouse Kitchen blog.

Summer is upon us. There’s no better time to explore cooking with seasonal food. Start with simple — a peachy-mint tea, berry-swirled pops, and a great tomato bruschetta. Summer fruits and vegetables are so great that a simple recipe is all you need to make the ingredients sing.

With Jessica Robinson’s new book A Farmgirl’s Table, everyone can cook as if they grew up on a farm. The cookbook is for lovers of heirloom tomatoes, sweet baked goods, fruity jams and hearty stews. Use the recipes for your farmers’ market finds or the bounty from your garden.

Jessica Robinson was raised on a small Connecticut farm where her family raised livestock and grew crops, as well as operated a maple sugar house. Today, Jessica lives on a small farm in Graham, North Carolina, with her husband and two sons. She is the editor, recipe developer, and photographer for her popular blog, Carolina Farmhouse Kitchen. You’ll often find her in her country kitchen whipping up homemade jams, pickles and confections from locally produced goods.

Peach Sweet Tea

There’s nothing better than homemade sweet tea. Add the flavor of fresh peaches and you’ll be in heaven.

Berry Swirled Pops

Creamy yogurt and fresh berries swirled together to make hot summer days a bit cooler with these refreshing pops. 

Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta

This traditional Italian-style appetizer is wonderful with freshly harvested heirloom tomatoes and a glass of local rosé wine.

Farmer’s Quiche

My mom would make homemade quiche often, because it was quick and used ingredients we had on hand. This quiche was beautiful in one of the vintage pie dishes she had collected over the years.
