Okay, we officially have one week of summer left… (*sob*)
I cannot believe it. Like how did three months magically fly by?
But as I reflect back on this summer (my first summer that I was officially employed!), I realized that we ate SO well. Because of we have one one week left, I decided to pull together a Summer Recipe Flashback as a “last chance list”… please excuse me as I run to the store and buy all the remaining blueberries, sweet corn, and tomatoes!
The Breakfast Foods:
These Blueberry Muffins… Basically my summer in muffin form.
Fresh corn takes these muffins from blah to brilliant! Plus, they muffins are under 150 calories (a breakfast win!).
Basil Pesto is the quintessential summer sauce…. and you know how much I love pesto pasta!
But Greek Tzatziki is definitely a delicious runner-up! Cool, creamy, and perfect as a dip or a sauce.
Breaded zucchini wedges unite veggie lovers and veggie haters!
Roasting tomatoes is so simple and brings out the their natural sweetness (trust me, this will be your new weeknight go-to veggie!).
E’s most popular recipe! BBQ Chicken Pizza uses up all the leftovers hanging in your fridge (and brings the barbecue inside!).
Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies are an interesting twist on the classic… while the flour doesn’t make them any healthier (still a treat!), it does add a nice nutty flavor to the cookies.
And Pavlova Cake is summer in dessert form – crispy meringue topped with clouds of whipped cream, and fresh berries make this summer incarnate!
Summer was a time of good eating! What was your favorite summer recipe?
