Six Summery Recipes to Celebrate the Season

Six Summery Recipes to Celebrate the Season - six fabulous recipes, perfect for summer parties, picnics and enjoyment!

Whether you’re planning a fun picnic or party for The Memorial Day weekend, or just need some new fun, eats, these Six Summery Recipes to Celebrate the Season should give you a nice little jump-start on a summer of fun in the sun.

It’s been a while. You might be wondering if I flew the coop. Or took a long siesta. Maybe you’re even imagining that I’m lounging on some tropical island sipping fruity drinks and watching fluffy white clouds float by.

Nope, none of the above. And I have a feeling you’d never guess in a thousand years why I haven’t posted this week till now.

My beloved computer and my morning coffee had a little run-in, earlier this week. Yup, just about the whole mug splashed all over the keyboard as my foot caught on the rug under my kitchen table. I yelled “OH NO!!!” and immediately ran for some cloths, but of course, coffee on the keyboard doesn’t take long to seep into the computer’s “brains”. It wasn’t a pretty picture when my friend Jeremy, at the Apple store, opened up the machine to take a look.

Thank goodness (and Scott) that we have a reliable back up, but it’s been an ordeal getting all that figured out. And an expensive ordeal at that, yikes!

Since I don’t have access to my pictures and recipes, and since Memorial Day, the official herald of summer is right around the corner, I thought it would be a great time to share some of our favorite warm weather recipes from the archives. Ready or not, summer, here we come!






So, whether you’re planning a fun picnic or party for The Memorial Day weekend or are just itching to pull out the swimsuits and flip flops, these summery recipes should give you a nice little jump-start on the warm weather season. Just keep your coffee away from your computer and you’ll be good to go. Bon appetit!

  • Those skewers are speaking to me this morning! With the holiday weekend coming up, I am looking forward to putting something on the grill. Hope the computer issues are getting better. Our kitchen is not going well – always problems, issues, and stumbling blocks.

  • That is the worst, Chris. So sorry. I know I am jinxing myself but my old reliable laptop has seen better days. I have to tap it when the fan gets too loud. 🙂 Thanks for getting these great summer recipes out and the photo of that cheesecake is amazing.

  • I went to make your granola this morning, love it by the way, and my pin did not connect. This may be a problem for some and they should be aware the recipes are still there. They will need to find and repin after your computer misadventure.

  • Yikes! I can’t believe I’ve never done that…so sorry!! But, I do love this yummy round up! I wanted to try those Asian chicken skewers last summer and didn’t have a chance, so they will be going on the menu…in fact everything does look perfect for Memorial Day!

  • It has happened to me before!! My cat jumped on the table and moved my red wine…and it’s too darn late before I could have done anything…..This is a great selection of summery treats, Chris.
    Have a beautiful weekend!

  • Everyone has a computer disaster story, Chris, and it’s never pretty. Mine was a few years ago, It was coffee also. When I took it to the Apple store, they took a picture of its innards to show me how “fried” the mechanics were. As I recall I was pounding my forehead on the Genius Bar when they told me it was over. Expensive, yes. I am so, so sorry. I always recall, however, when I was leaving with my new fancy computer that the salesman/genius desk guy said, “I have two words for you, Mary, Sippy Cup!” I also was glad to see some of these old recipes brought to life. I need some ideas and these will work.

  • So sorry to hear about your computer but hopefully it will be on the mend very soon.

    In the meantime I’m thrilled you posted these recipes because I never saw that Lemon Berry Tart. I’m definitely going to try that next weekend. It looks and sounds wonderful.
