  1. This is great!! Thanks so much for putting all of these in one place 🙂 I’ll be making several of these for my next family get together.

  2. All the recipes look and sound amazing but that strawberry cake is calling my name lol!!! Love your photos Tieghan and they always make me hungry, can’t wait that my new kitchen is all set up so I can bake something delicious! 🙂

  3. Salmon burgers. Loaded detox salads. Crudites that look like they’re worth a million bucks. Flavorful adobo skewers. Mannnnn, if you cooked everything, I would be the first to come to that Memorial Day party!

    1. Wow thank you so much Caitlin!! Haha! I totally agree, sometimes its sooo hard to wait for stuff to finish!!

  4. Now the summer needs to last forever in order to try every single one of these recipes.

  5. This is the ULTIMATE list of summer recipes. I’m not sure if one could get through all of these , but I plan on giving it a great try all summer. Archiving this post for future as well as the present. Thank-you for this awesome post. Enjoy the holiday weekend- snow included!

  6. Everything is so colorful and looks so delicious.
    I have the opposite problem–it turned hot and humid here.
    We have the Taste of Cincinnati this weekend and I don’t want to go because of the heat and big crowds.
    I like the high sixties for walks outside.

  7. There are sooooooooo many options! I recently subscribed to your newsletter after months of visiting your website and I love how your email lands up in my inbox every day 🙂 🙂

  8. Uuuaah, snow! I love snow but I right now am happy with warm sunny days we have been having here in Spain lately! 🙂 I wouldn’t know which recipe to choose, they all look just perfect! But the Loaded Greek Quinoa Salad is one of my favourite ones so far! Oh, hang on and I also love everything with burrata or mozzarella in the recipe! 🙂 I shouldn’t be checking your pics when hungry 🙂

    1. Right!! The snow is getting ridiculous! A nice warm sunny days sounds AMAZING! So happy you like all my recipes/pictures!(: Thanks Julia!
