Summer is the perfect time to try some new things, especially some new recipes. I don’t know what it is about Summer that offers more freshness and a colorful explosion on our plates, but that is the best way that I can describe food during the Summer months. I am sharing some of the recipes that I have had my eye on as we get closet to sweet Summertime. What are y’all whipping up this Summer?
Having a party this summer? A barbeque? Pool party? Maybe a Family Reunion? Fiesta? Perhaps a birthday party? Possibly absolutely no parties at all, but you just really want a refreshing summer drink?Great! This is your drink!
These grilled veggie kabobs skewer all the best vegetables and are easy to throw on the grill! They’re an ideal healthy side dish.
This tortellini salad is full of zingy flavor: a delicious pasta salad for picnics and cookouts! Leftovers last for days, so it’s also an easy lunch idea.
A “throw together” summer squash salad with avocado, toasted pine nuts, ricotta salata cheese, and fresh garden chives. Tossed simply with lemon and olive oil. It’s a super refreshing side dish that I’m thinking will be perfect throughout the month of August.
A campfire in your mouth during the summertime! Change up traditional s’mores with the use of sugar cookies and candy bars. The sweetness cannot be beat.
The best recipes are the simplest. Pesto pasta with homemade basil pesto, al dente noodles and a sprinkle of Parmesan? Perfection.
Nothing sounds like summer like something sweet and sticky that is going to get a little messy. This chicken is to die for and something that will light up the kitchen table this summer.
This strawberry crumble (aka strawberry crisp) is the only recipe you need! The big berry flavor and oat topping make a recipe you’ll bake up again and again.
Hmmm a beautiful steak in the middle of summer full of flavor. Now that sounds delicious. I don’t think a great steak needs much other than salt and pepper, but this creamy fusion of butter and Sriracha sauce certainly doesn’t hurt.
Oooo I’m a massive taco girl and these are calling me home! The citrusy marinade in this carne asada taco recipe gets punchy flavor from fresh cilantro, garlic, olive oil, cumin, chili powder, beer, a combination of orange and lime juices, and—surprise!—apple cider vinegar, which helps tenderize the meat.
Not only is this pasta a showstopper for its simplicity and flavor, but it’s a true treat that can be enjoyed either hot or cold.
This fresh peach salsa recipe is perfect for summer potlucks. Serve with tortilla chips, fish, black beans, tacos, and more!
These grilled shrimp skewers are full of juicy flavor! The shrimp seasoning brings in just the right touch of savory and smoky.
This grilled shrimp salad is summer dinner at its finest! It’s bursting with flavor, drizzled with a zingy tomato vinaigrette.
Grilled corn salad drizzled with creamy lime dressing. Fresh ears of corn are roasted on the grill to add a smoky flavor. Serve it alongside your favorite protein for a complete dinner!
This burrata recipe is the best way to serve this rich and creamy cheese! Pair it with summer fruit or tomatoes, olive oil and sea salt.
Boursin cheese, eggs, prosciutto, and arugula salad are topped on a buttery puff pastry to make up this Baked Prosciutto and Egg Breakfast Tart. Its bright, savory, and creamy flavors are perfect for spring!
This easy blueberry cake recipe is stunning: it’s fluffy, lightly sweet, and scented with lemon. Perfect for dessert or brunch!
