Tried and True Summer Favorites!
Late last night, as I was waiting for a galette to come out of the oven to take to friends for dinner tonight – Happy 4th of July!! – I started thinking about our favorite summer recipes. To celebrate special occasions or just enjoy al fresco whenever possible.
Happy to share this space with a small round up of some of our favorite recipes during the hot Summer months.
Grilled Shrimp Skewers With Feta Dill Sauce from Food & Wine Magazine.
Mama’s BBQ Chicken and Watercress, Walnut, Roquefort Salad (bottom left corner) from Virginia Willis' Basic To Brlliant Y’all (Ten Speed Press).
An ultra simple but nonetheless belly-good classic burger…
Shaved Fennel Salad, From Heidi Swanson’s Supernatural Everyday.
Thai Turkey Burgers, from Food & Wine Magazine.
Blueberries and Cream Layer Cake…or what’s left of it if you make it…!
Mixed Berries Sorbet….So so refreshing!
Happy Independence Day!

What a gorgeous well-rounded round up! Meat, veggies, gluten free, fat free, sweet tooth… and beautiful photos. I'm an avid quinoa eater- today with lime, cilantro, peppers and grilled shrimp (thx to your photo here). Next quinoa salad will be sporting figs and mint. Can't say I would have thought of that one on my own…Happy 4th.

It's a cold Wintery day here, but I'm still wondering which of your Summer favourites I should try first. They all look so bright and packed with flavour.
