The Heat is ON!
Here are 10 Summer recipes that seriously scream yummy all over.
If like me, you’ve already been hanging out at your grill, sharing good times and making new *almost* summer memories. I’m all about summer food and love love love finding new ways to up the flavor and trying out even better ways on how to perfect that oh so perfect burger.
If you are wondering, my preference for cooking during those roasting hot days, is on an old fashioned charcoal grill. Don’t get me wrong, I do find just about any kind of grill a work of perfection, but the flavor of a charcoal grill is hard to beat. I will cook almost any thing on a grill, except churn ice cream, I’ve found that one impossible. Although, I might cold smoke some and I just might be very soon!
