This week’s episode is brought to you by Cabot Creamery
It’s our favorite point in the season: where we share with you what we’ve been cooking in our kitchens. While things have opened up a little bit here and there, we’re all largely still in quarantine and soaking up as much outside time as possible as we look to an unsure year ahead. So, yea, lots of grilling. And other stuff too. All of it delicious and easy.

Low Cook for Long Days
The days are long — and not just because we’re in the dog days of summer. The antidote is perfect seasonal produce, low cook meals, and going easy in the kitchen.
This week, we delve into what we’re cooking this week. Here are the links from our conversation, and notice that there are fewer recipes and more ingredients. Because that’s how cooking looks these days: like a laid back assembly of ingredients.
Here are links to this weeks topics:

We Love Our Sponsors!
By now, y’all know that the number one ingredient on our shopping list is: CHEESE! So we couldn’t be more excited to welcome Cabot back as a sponsor. And just in time for back-to-school!
Whether you’re packing lunch to go, prepping lunch for an easy remote or home school break, or both, Cabot has convenient and totally delicious options, from shredded, to blocks, to pre-cut. Cabot makes it easy to get award-winning taste however you need it at conventional market prices.
Our favorites include:
PEPPERJACK! This comes in a block and also in cracker cuts, which both of our families are obsessed with. It’s perfect for snack time, lunchboxes, and the best dinner quesadillas ever.
TUSCAN CHEDDAR! The easiest and most affordable “fancy” cheese ever, this is perfect for a socially distanced hang with friends or snack board dinner.
MAC AND CHEESE SHREDDED CHEESE! A combo of Cabot’s Alpine and Sharp Cheddar, this is the perfect shortcut to a gourmet-tasting mac and cheese night.
SERIOUSLY SHARP CHEDDAR! You can never go wrong with this widely available classic. Cabot’s Seriously Sharp Cheddar packs an award-winning flavor punch without requiring you to shell out gourmet cheese prices. It’s seriously delicious and seriously all-purpose too.
