August is an exciting produce month with tomatoes and okra at their peak, and—my daughter’s favorite—melon, coming in season. For me, one of the joys of summertime in Oklahoma is creating dishes that highlight the fresh ingredients available at this time of year. This month’s recipes were inspired by a thriving basil bush in my garden and zucchini from the farmer’s market. I hope you also find inspiration in the abundance of late summer’s harvest to create something delicious!
