SUMMER Food Porn Tuesday!


SUMMER RECIPES

I'm all for yummy, brightly colored foods using veggies and fruits in the summertime. Summer usually makes me want lighter foods that don't heat up my kitchen or take too long to make...gotta have some lounge-time built into the summer right?
And fresh fruit that is so sweet it dribbled down your chin...amen I say!!!

Thought I'd share a few recipes I've seen around that got my tastebuds going....will be making these the next 2 weeks before we head out on our 15 day vacation starting July 9th.


Our local farmers market is promising fresh corn by next week...so I'm thinking
this would be a yummy side with some fresh, grilled fish.  Mmmmmm!



I make a zucchini dish that I make a lot (diced zucchini & onions sauteed then add mozz cheese on top) so I'm looking to expand my zucchini repertoire because I have a LOT of zucchinis growing in the garden. These look easy & yummy!


Onions + Cheese = say no more.....sounds like good stuff to me and easy to cook up!


I love me some stuffed tomatoes....that's just good eating to me...especially when they are fresh 'maters!
Here's a few for ya in case you need variety like me ;)


I am going to have a bumper crop of wax/yellow beans this summer and was looking for new recipes when I came across this.  Sounds sooooo good & easy to do!


I'm growing a few herbs this summer as well and my basil has come in beautifully. I'm going to make this recipe and the one below with my fresh basil...should be yum yums!


Sounds yum right? I'll let you know.....


I want to try this version on my spinach-strawberry salads this summer.
Looks good, sounds good!


And for a very sweet dessert, how about these?  I think I just drooled.....
I like little desserts...just enough to sweeten you up but not enough to stuff ya!



Are any of you growing some fresh veggies this summer?  What's your favorite veggie to eat and grow?

  1. Oh, YUM. Took note of several suggestions, Suzanne. I know hubby will be all over the Strawberry Balsamic Dressing. My fav is the lettuce from my garden. We love the wilted salads in the summer. Also, Jalapenos, as we pickle them throughout the summer and fall. Fabulous recipe, I'll have to email you. Looks like you are staying busy this summer. Look forward to your upcoming pics from Disney vacation. :)
