Summer Recipe RoundUp

Summer Recipes for every occassion - Easy Recipes, using real food.

Summer may not officially start until June 21st with the Summer Solstice, but for many of us in the US, summer begins this weekend. It's almost as if a switch in my brain flicks, and I start thinking, "how can I make life easier?" In the kitchen, that means staying OUT of the kitchen as much as possible. Fresh fruits and vegetables, tasty salads, and lean meats on the grill make up the majority of our summer dining.

More relaxed, outdoor dining happens too. Paper plates or pretty plastic ones, and cool refreshing drinks become the norm. So I'm ready to slow it all down, kick back and enjoy summer, and to help you do the same thing,  I've gathered up my favorite summer recipes to share with you!
