Hear that sound? It's the last call for summer's best recipes. Come September, grilling and garden harvests will be replaced by oven-roasting and treks to the orchard. These recipes let you savor the essence of summer in side dishes, main courses, appetizers and a tart. Get 'em before the season slips away.
Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake
will help you get rid of some of your squash stash by turning it into a gooey side dish with green onions, fresh basil, seasonings and a topping of melty cheese.
Mixing cheddar cheese, bacon bits and horseradish with ground beef creates super burgers, aka Cheddar Bacon Hamburgers
. Grilled and tucked into a bun, they're summer perfection.
Sliced tomatoes never had it better than in Pesto-Roasted Tomatoes
, where they're topped with a basil-rich pesto and Parmesan, then baked until the cheese melts and the tomatoes are tender.
Keep the gang happy with a pile of grilled Jerk Chicken Wings
, which feature a marinade with a bit of heat (jalapeños), spice (cloves, nutmeg and allspice) and a lot of zing (soy sauce, vinegar and brown sugar).
The authentic flavor of S'more Tart
comes from the filling of melted milk chocolate Hershey's bars. It's spread over a graham cookie crust and topped with mini marshmallows.
