This weekend, I decided to really go for it and make Cara Nicoletti's Beer Can Chicken—then adopt a cat from A.S.P.C.A. Not sure which one's cuter. — Leslie




Nothing tops off a long day of surfing lessons like cheese fries and beer at Rippers in the Rockaways—especially when the aforementioned activity feels more like taking a spin through the washing machine than acquiring a new skill. — Amanda



I spotted (and smelled!!) peaches at the market for the first time this summer, and made them into a Fourth of July pie using Erin's excellent crust recipe and a handful of blueberries. And then got to eat it cold for breakfast. — Caroline



Making pickled fennel to go in Merrill's quinoa and farro salad. — Ali



Cherry pie with the Food52 exclusive towel! Slight seam in the crust because I'm not Erin. — Madeline



This is what you're rewarded with after waiting out the rain all day on the Fourth of July. — Kenzi
