Summer Fest: Broccoli Stir-Fry

You can avoid a lot of unnecessary oil and still get a ton of flavor by making stir-fry at home. Emeril's Stir-Fried Chicken With Broccoli has all the elements of Chinese takeout, so there's no need to dial for delivery. In addition to broccoli, you'll get crunch from water chestnuts and red bell peppers.

Summer Fest: Easy Tomato Galette

I grew up picking tomatoes straight from the garden and eating them like apples, warm from the sun. Since then, I've had a hard-and-fast two-tomato-a-day rule every summer. Sure, I love tomato salads, BLTs, and simple, garlicky sauce, but this summer, my favorite way to reach my daily quota is a slice of tomato galette.

Summer Fest: Very Cherry Sangria

In season summer fruit is so sweet and juicy, you don't even need to think about adding sugar to your favorite drinks, you can just add succulent fruit. One of the best ways to drink cherries this summer is in a classic fruity cocktail: sangria.

Summer Fest: Fresh Corn Muffins

Week five of our season-long garden party Summer Fest 2011 welcomes food and garden bloggers to feature garden-to-table recipes and tips. We’ll help you to enjoy all that this season has to offer. So far, we’ve delved into eggplant, peaches, cucumbers and cherries. Now we're on to a new crop: corn. Yes, I turned on my oven. It was worth it though to work sweet summer corn into a classic corn muffin recipe. These savory corn muffins are a great accompaniment to any summer dish but since I prefer to snack all day, I made them miniature. You can pick up corn right now from your local farmers' market, but there should also be plenty in stock at the supermarket.
