Happy August! We can't quite believe how quickly time has flown this summer and our list of kitchen "to-do's before it's too late" is only growing longer. It's true: summer affords us longer days that often allow for more time to cook, garden, see friends, and spend time outdoors
. There are crops of berries, tomatoes and corn that help us forget about long, dreary winters as we relish in colorful, fresh meals straight from the farmers market. I find myself clipping recipes and bookmarking dishes I want to make at the beginning of the summer and soon realize that the season's not infinite and berries and stone fruit won't be around forever. So this week, I gave myself a little motivational kick: it's time to get moving on those 'must-make summer recipes' before (dare I say it) it's too late.
So here are a few recipes that have been on my list since I first spotted them--recipes that will make their way onto my table very soon. What are yours?
What is your 'must make summer recipe'?
