Back, and Blogging from the Beach
I'm not sure how it always happens, but August-which is supposed to be one of the quietest months of the year-turns out to be one of my busiest. Planning for September and all that comes with fall is in full effect right now. Thankfully, I'm able to take mini breaks here and there so I don't burn the candle on both ends. I often head to the beach for relaxation...and then to the kitchen. Cooking can surprisingly be a fantastic stress reliever. Tuning the rest of the world out and tuning into a few ingredients, zoning out and letting your creative juices flow. So here's a peek at what my good friend Lauren and I whipped up last night...sourcing fresh ingredients from some of our favorite farmstands and a little seafood shop on the East End. Lobster's certainly not something I purchase often given the hefty price tag, but at least once a summer, it's a nice indulgence, without a ton of calories. And while summer herbs are still kicking, there's nothing better than a light summery pasta to pair with seafood. So, if you're looking for an inspiring meal as summer starts coming to a close, here it is...quick and simple enough that it won't keep you in the kitchen all weekend long.
Steamed Lobster with Basil-Lemon Linguine
Serves :: 4
2 1 1/2 lb lobsters
8 oz linguine (about 1/2 a package)
2 cups fresh basil
2 tablespoons minced chives
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus extra for serving
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
zest of 1 lemon
salt and pepper to taste
*compound butter for lobster: 1/2 stick butter, melted, plus 2 tablespoons minced chives, juice of 1/2 lime and 1/2 teaspoon minced jalapeno
Bring about 2 inches of water to a boil in a large pot and steam lobsters for about 10-12 minutes.
For pasta, cook pasta in a pot of salted boiling water for 4-6 minutes until al dente. For the lemon-herb pesto, add basil through lemon zest in a food processor and blend until slightly chunky. Season additionally with salt and pepper if desired. Toss with linguine.
Serve lobster with chive butter for dipping.
*Note, the additional dish pictured is a quick yellow watermelon, feta, mint and jalapeno salad similar to the one featured here, just skip the step of grilling the melon.

Michelle refused the president twice, even after he went in for the kill, and the crowd wasn’t feeling it. Obama was swagging out all night in Under Armour – at a Nike event – but it took him a second try at the Kiss Cam to give his woman a smooch.
