Stir-Fried Cilantro Chicken

This simple stir-fry gets a lot of flavor from a few ingredients that are typically on sale during the summer months. The heat level can be dialed up or down to suit your tastes; although people who (unfortunately) think cilantro tastes like soap should probably steer clear!

Lemon Berry Quick Bread

I am a fan of big lemon flavor, and this bread has plenty of it. It is best made with fresh juice and berries at the height of summer, but bottled lemon juice and (thawed) frozen berries could do in a pinch if you find yourself yearning for those seasonal flavors.
