I love picnics and simplicity is the key ingredient for a pleasant picnic. With farm markets opening, stock up on fresh fruits, berries, and vegetables for the picnic basket. Healthy seasonal vegetables can be lightly grilled for summer picnics. Whether you’re going to the beach, a park, or your own patio, dining outdoors is a nice way to enjoy life.
Homemade Waffle Cones
For me the cone is as important as the ice cream. I’ve been making my own ice cream these days so I decided to try my hand at making waffle cones. Homemade Waffle Cones are excellent for holding scoops of your favorite homemade ice cream. Make sure to cook each cone for at least one minute before lifting the lid of the waffle cone maker so that the batter has time to get firm.
Mexican Street Corn Salad
Mexican Street Corn Salad is an excellent summer side dish. You get the classic flavors of Mexican Street Corn, but served as an easy salad.
Slaw With Lime Vinaigrette
When I have a lot of people coming over for a party I like to make ahead as much as I can. I make this slaw the day before and, quite frankly, it’s so much better the next day anyway.
Often times I don’t’ want to spend my calories on the bun, but still want to have burger night. Burger Salad is a good way to “have your burger and eat it too.”
Avocados With Crab Salad
Crab goes so well with rich avocados, which makes a filling yet healthy lunch. Besides being delicious, it’s very easy to prepare and presents well.
Making your own marinade is an easy and creative way to add flavor to a recipe. You can let the food soak up the marinade for a few hours or even brush it on right before grilling. This is a balsamic and soy sauce-based marinade that works well with many meat and vegetables.
