It’s kind of, sort of here….

Well not for me, like at all (I am not kidding it is seriously snowing hard out right now!)… BUT, I hope and pray that for the rest of you, the weather is at least in the 60’s and sunny too. I also hope your grass is green, your yards are filled with flowers and your trees are bushy and full of color. Yes, this is what I hope for you, because for me?? It honestly still looks like winter (well maybe a dismal early spring), and yes, it’s 100% depressing. However, we are not going to talk about any of that today because I have decided I will just pretend my weather is beautiful and summery…which really means I will fill my home with flowers, buy a watermelon, grill corn and suck on ice cream (by the heater).

SO anyway, let’s talk about all these summer recipes. Some are old, some are new, but either way you are going to want to make them. No really, you will.

  2. Your food photography is stunning. I spend a lot of time drooling over the gorgeous posts. Very lovely.

  3. After reading your email this morning I went to Krogers and got a roll of polenta (cornmeal mush) and sausages for breakfast tomorrow but I couldn’t figure out which salad I wanted to make.
    Those pictures are a sea of color–just love looking at then.

  4. I can’t believe it’s still snowing for you, ugh! I won’t tell you what the temp is here, but it has been unseasonably cool for May. Love this round up, you’re putting me in a summer mood with all these gorgeous colors!

  7. I like your Balboa bar recipe. I made it quite a few times last summer! I also really just like simple cobblers and crumbles with ice cream.

  8. Summer time means lots of panzanella salads! But your Kitchen sink pasta salad is next on my list. Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
