​On the Solomon McCown & Company Facebook page, we've started a feature called 5 for Friday. Every week, one member of our staff presents a list of anything that strikes his or her fancy — a fun way to start off the weekend. This week, Account Executive Isabel Black lists the 5 recipes she wants to try this summer:

  1. This artichoke soufflé. Good artichokes are one of my favorite things about summer and this is a really unique way of using them (plus, this blog is beautiful).
  2. I keep wanting to try making my own bread…and now there's no excuse with this no-knead technique!
  3. Grilling and peaches both scream summer, so grilled peaches seems only natural. Thanks, Martha.
  4. It might be hard to use good, summer corn for anything but eating with lots of butter, but this recipe for lamb meatballs and fresh corn polenta looks delish.
  5. Pickles are one of my favorite foods, but I've always been intimidated to make them myself. All the more reason to try this summer!
