Slow Cooker Crab and Corn Soup

This is the perfect end-of-summer, transitioning to fall soup. It showcases fresh corn which is still in season in a warming yet light way, perfect for a cooler September evening. I usually pair this soup with multi-grain rolls baked in the oven and a garden salad.

Oven-BBQ’d Chicken

Serve with blueberry and Corn Rice Salad-

While I was grateful for being able to camp out in my parent’s luxury high-rise for the summer while we were trying to sell our house, the drawback is no grill!! By Week 3 and lack luster results with a George Forman grill, I decided to try a barbequed chicken recipe in the oven. This meal is perfect for the transitional month of September when corn and blueberries are still in season and you might have abandoned your summer grilling, but not your summer attitude.

Creamy Corn Chowder

Serve with crusty whole grain bread with goat cheese-

I am not a huge fan of cream-based soups, but I wanted to make traditional corn chowder with the last-of-the-season sweet corn from the farmer’s markets. I am now a HUGE fan of this lightened version, as is my family, which unanimously gave this vegetarian chowder “5 stars”. Dunking a warm, whole grain roll into the incredibly creamy, fennel-scented, flavorful broth (chockfull of tender potatoes and fresh corn kernels) is the perfect beginning to the start of comfort food season.

Wild Rice and Sweet Corn Balls with Roasted Red Pepper-Walnut Dip

These nutty-sweet wild rice-sweet corn balls with a hint of heat are the perfect compliment to the smoky red pepper-walnut dip. It’s a match made-in-heaven appetizer sure to illicit oohs and ahhs at your next potluck get together. I even like this pairing as a vegan lunch or dinner; just add a side of greens or a crisp salad.
