The Café is temporarily closed. Well maybe its better to say we’re taking a little ……… siesta! It’s not a closing or siesta of our own volition. Just one of those things that happens; my beloved Mac iBook is in the shop because, somehow, every last picture we’ve taken in the last year has disappeared. Yup, you heard that right. All of our family, food, vacation, etc. pictures are gone ………. the entire library!
Our prayer is that the magicians at MacVantage, our local Mac specialty shop, can work a miracle and restore the hard drive. That may take a few days so we thought that, in the meantime, we’d share a few of our favorite, best summer recipes. Hopefully we’ll be back in business soon – hope you enjoy these great summer recipes till then!
These Tomato, Avocado and Fresh Mozzarella Tartines are amazing, we could eat them every day in the summer!
Oh my! These Smashed Potatoes with Fresh Herb Gremolata might just be the most crazy-good potatoes you’ll ever have the pleasure of meeting. They’re great with just about any summer grilled entree. It seems that no matter now many I make, there’s never quite enough. I love that you can do much of the work ahead of time.
My daughter-in-law Lindsay, made this Roasted Shrimp and Orzo for us. It’s just amazing and such an easy dish to put together. It’s just perfect for a light, summer meal.
Raspberry Honey-Jalapeño Vinaigrette is a favorite summer salad dressing here at The Café; it’s sweet and spicy and super delicious!
And for the most fun, summer treat in the sweet category, you must give these delightful Blackberry Glazed Yeast Donuts a try. You’ll be a hero, for sure!
We’ll be back as soon as possible with Scott’s post #2 on our California Coast Road Trip and lots of great summer recipes. We’re still creating and shooting despite the computer problems. Today we made and shot Jar Cheesecakes with Ganache and Fresh Raspberry Sauce. They’ll be perfect for parties and picnics this summer – on the blog soon!
