To unleash the pure, concentrated flavor of tomatoes, grate them! Mix the tasty pulp with salt and EVOO for the fastest homemade pasta sauce ever; spoon it on toasts topped with ricotta; or whisk with EVOO and a splash of wine vinegar for a fresh salad dressing.

Don't throw away those carrot tops! Give the leaves a good rinse (they're sometimes a little sandy), then add them to salads, use them as a soup garnish, or use carrot tops for half the basil in your next pesto.

Frozen cherries are available all year round and make a great substitute for fresh. Bonus: For a refreshing and healthy snack, eat them straight out of the freezer on a hot summer day.
