Summer Recipe Roundup

It’s that time of year again; the grills are out, the farmers markets are open, and friends and family are getting together to celebrate the season. It’s the perfect time for easy, fresh food, and I thought the below recipes were worth re-posting. Here are a few of the things I find most delicious in the summer time. Add to these a nice cold beer or glass of bubbly, a steamed and buttered lobster, and some raw oysters, and you have my perfect summer feast. I am very excited about June. I have my annual girls’ weekend at the Cape (Go UMASS!) next weekend, and we are finishing the month off with a family trip to Sanibel Island. Get me to the beach!

Feel free to leave your favorite summer recipes or wines in the comments. Have a fabulous weekend!

Grilled Corn Salad – THE perfect BBQ side dish – vegan, healthy, delicious

Corn coated in butter and sriracha, a la Myers + Chang is also an amazing corn option.

A Summery Rum Cocktail – When you need a fun and fruity cocktail, this Brugal rum based drink is easy and delicious. You also can’t go wrong with one of my favorites, the Dark & Stormy.

Caprese skewers – It doesn’t get much easier, and this no-cook treat makes it easy to beat the heat!

Heirloom Tomato Panzanella – heirloom tomato season is pure heaven! I know they won’t be around for awhile, but tuck this one away for those first heirlooms.



Happy sort of Summer!

    Grilled corn salad… yum! And watermelon gazpacho! Mark Bittman just published an article featuring lots of cold soups yesterday and the watermelon gazpacho looked awesome.
