Growing up in the Midwest we had this potato salad all the time. It’s so easy to make and when it sits in the refrigerator overnight it’s so much better. You can make a double batch to pack for picnics for the beach or serve for outdoor barbeques.
Fire up the grill for a backyard cookout your family will love. Dig into burgers, brats, or saucy ribs. Fruit and vegetables have a place on the grill tool. Grill up some sweet onions and make this delicious Grilled Onion Dip.
I tend to eat quite a bit lighter during the summer months and fresh fruits and vegetables make it possible. This salad is excellent for summer BBQs.
I like to make summer mornings as easy as possible, especially when I have guests. Having this easy Strawberry Breakfast Cake on hand makes it possible.
I have a real sweet tooth and this Honey Yogurt Dip curbs dessert cravings morning, noon, and night by pairing fruit with lightly sweetened yogurt.
Perfectly poached eggs with spinach and buttery hollandaise isn’t just for Sunday brunch. If you have summer guests, like I do, this is a special breakfast, brunch, or even dinner. A dash of white wine vinegar (about 2 teaspoons) added to the poaching water will encourage the protein in the eggs to coagulate, creating a neater looking poached egg.
Kids love to help out in the kitchen so get them on board with measuring and adding the ingredients to the blender for this “better for you” version of a malt shop classic. For fun confetti rims, add rainbow sprinkles to a rimmed plate. Spread some whipped cream around rims of glasses and then dip in the sprinkles.
Keeping sausages in a foil pan of beer on the grill is a delicious way to keep them warm so guests can help themselves.
Cool down with this boozy fruit that is both a snack and cocktail in one. We’ve used pineapple in this recipe but you could use watermelon, peaches or any other fruit that absorbs well.
