My Great Tastes of Summer recipe series is coming to an end – with just enough time to enjoy the last fleeting moments of warm weather, vacation (if you’re lucky) and calm before the back-to-school/hurry-up-and-cook for yuntif storm. Relax one last time with these 3 great Quick & Kosher recipes.

Italian Zucchini - You don’t have to be an Italian trained chef to whip up this sensational summer side.

Baby French String Beans with Slivered Almonds - Haricots verts is the official French name for these delicious, best-ever green beans. They are slender, more flavorful, stringless string beans.

Classic Corn on the Cob - People poked a lot of fun at me when I included a corn on the cob recipe in my first book Quick & Kosher: Recipes From The Bride Who Knew Nothing. But if you believe me, then you believe that when I was first married I didn’t know if you were supposed to cook corn for 2 minutes or 2 hours.

Now you don’t have to learn the hard way like I did. Although I’ve found people are pretty particular about how to make perfect corn on the cob.

What’s your classic corn on the cob secret? Leave a comment, I’m all ears.
