Summer Veggie Butter Bean Salad

This time of year, summer vegetables are plentiful, generally affordable, as well as readily available, either from your garden, your farmer's market or your local grocery store.  If you have a small garden plot, like I do, you probably have an abundance of tomatoes and zucchini right now, so I developed this recipe with a pile of both sitting on my kitchen counter.

Marmalade Cake

I made this Scottish marmalade cake for the premier of Outlander, a new series on Starz, that begins tomorrow night. It's adapted from a series of books by Diana Gabaldon.  I'm a big fan of this historical fiction/love story, and have been eagerly waiting to see these characters come to life.  It's the story of an ex WWII combat nurse, on a second honeymoon in Scotland with her husband, who finds herself swept back in time to 1743 Scotland after touching some standing stones. Here's a link to the trailer:
