Review: August Bon Appétit

Isn't the cover gorgeous? The recipe, for Skillet Blackberry Cobbler, is actually from the R.S.V.P. section on p. 28 (just in case you had as much trouble as I did finding it). Again, my mantra from last month - it's very hard to screw up summer recipes.

So much yumminess: Blackberries Brûlée with Marscapone Cream; a "caprese-like salad" of sliced peaches, fresh mozzarella and basil; Grilled Steak and Onions with Rosemary-Balsamic Butter Sauce; Grilled Spicy-Citrus Chicken Thighs with grilled corn; Lobster with Herb Butter; Plum Streusel; Citrus Mint Juleps; Bruschetta with Tomato, Avocado, Basil, and Mint; Almond, Apricot, and Cream Cheese Crostata; and Tangy Avocado-Orange Salad. Wow, so much yum, wow.

There is also a beautiful picnic basket (the "Somerset" willow picnic tote) in Bon Vivant that I am absolutely in love with. And, frankly, it's not that expensive for a gift (only $49); not something bought on a whim, but less than a nice pair of shoes, so I might just have to save for it (can I give myself a midsummer gift?)

We'll have to see how the recipes pan out, but it's very exciting.
