Hello Summer!

by FoodBabbles on June 20, 2012

Hello Summer! It has officially arrived. Here in New Jersey we’ve already had 90+ degree days but that was just a very confused spring. Now, I’m ready. Bring on the days spent in swimming pools filled giddy, squealing little girls as they splash in the cool water. Bring on the warm summer nights with the bright orange sun setting slowly over the horizon. Those nights of playing late in the yard and sitting on the deck, likely with a relaxing glass of wine in my hand. Today marks the first day of summer and with that marches in a whole wonderful host of bright flavors. Here are some of my very favorite summer recipes. Hope you enjoy!
