Summer is all about family, friends, fun and food. We really try to spend as much time making memories with family and friends as we possibly can, and that usually revolves around food. Last summer we took a lot of really fun trips. We took a 3 day trip to Sedona, had a week long family vacation in New Orleans and traveled to Florida to visit my side of the family.
When we are not traveling during the summer, cook-outs are on the calendar. Whether we are getting together with our whole group of close friends, planning a casual Labor Day gathering or inviting the in-laws over to grill with us we truly enjoy it all throughout the summer.
I enjoy cooking for people. It makes me feel good to share with the ones I care about. Summertime food is so much fun. Whether it is food on the grill or in a slow cooker, fresh vegetables or cold salads, icy treats or no-bake desserts or cocktails is it all wonderful.
I have pulled together out top 10 all time most popular summer recipes to kick off your summer celebration. Make some memories and enjoy your summer. We can't wait to hear how you are living it up.
With love from our simple kitchen to yours.
