Top 10 All Time Summer Recipes


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.
