Top Ten Favorite Summer Recipes

Even though it’s usually 100+ degrees during the summer here, I can’t help but be ecstatic to create recipes in these hot summer months! I wanted to make a conglomeration of my favorite summer recipes in one spot.

Summer = blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, fresh mint, zucchini, cherry tomatoes…

It’s no secret that I love baking seasonally. But not all of these recipes require oven-time, thank goodness! 🙂

If you can brave the heat of the oven or stovetop on a hot summer day, try the first five. If you need to cool down, try the last five. These recipes range from breakfast, to entrees, to sides/salads, to dessert.
