 There is more to rhubarb than pie, as these rhubarb-spiked summer coolers show. Shannon Kuhn
The past two summers, we’ve had a friend from the Lower 48 living with us and working as a commercial fisherman. His favorite pizza has always been barbecue chicken. He requests it every time he comes to visit, and since he’s here for the summer, I’ll be making it several times. Maya Evoy

You can learn a lot about a country’s culture through the types of breads its people eat.Shannon Kuhn
Every summer, I turn into a produce stalker, obsessively checking out the local farmers market stands in anticipation of the first hint of luminescent green and deep-orange blossoms, those delicate blooms of zucchini squash that are truly a seasonal delight. While picking through the blossoms, various people commented on how pretty they were, along with: Are those really edible? How do you eat them? I sighed like a schoolgirl with a crush before going into a long litany of how delicious these blossoms can be.Kim Sunée
I was badly in need of a kitchen victory -- an easy-breezy, uncomplicated success. Artichokes. They have never failed me. Maya Evoy
Don’t have the time or the desire to go dipnetting? Combat fishing isn’t for you? But you still want a freezer full of sockeye salmon. The Alaska Marine Conservation Council's community supported fishery might be what you're looking for.Steve Edwards
