Feast on This” features the best seasonal recipes you should cook every month.

“Everything’s coming up roses!” belted Ethel Merman in the 1959 Broadway musical Gypsy. And that sentiment — when one good thing comes, other good things follow — cannot be truer for June, a month named for the Roman goddess of love, Juno.

And we’re bubbling with affection for our favorite early-summer produce that shares the spotlight with June’s favorite flower, the rose.

We’ve compiled our list of favorite June recipes that you’ll adore for their ease of preparation and freshness: from a simple, satisfying breakfast to enjoy while lounging by the pool to hearty meals that will enhance your grill feasts and Father’s Day get-togethers. Snap up ingredients at your local farmers market, snip them from your garden or terrace, or order peak-of-season produce to be shipped to your door.

Everything’s coming up roses…and aromatic herbs, and tender squash, and new potatoes, and hefty ripe strawberries and cherries, and juicy peaches!
