    Blueberry Coconut Float

    Blueberry season is the perfect time to use your juicer to upgrade one of summer’s most iconic treats: the root beer float. Consider sprinkling with a whisper of grated nutmeg. Source some quality coconut or regular ice cream if you don’t have an ice cream maker to make your own.

    Crab and Apple Stuffed Endive Boats

    Rich, tasty crab, sweet apple, licorice-scented tarragon, and a touch of lemon make these stuffed endives a classy crowd pleaser. The filling is easily prepared in advance and can be chilled until ready to serve, but this dish also comes together quickly enough to be done right before stuffing into leaves. Keeping your boats upright If you want the endive boats to sit neatly on the dish or platter without tipping, you can make a small slice at the bottom of each leaf before filling to give it a flat surface to rest on. Just make sure not to penetrate too deeply into the wall of the leaf.
