Come June, we are ready to dive into all things summer! That means cooking and eating outdoors as much as possible, firing up the grill on a regular basis, loading up on the bounty of seasonal produce, and embracing the ease and simplicity that comes with warm-weather cooking and vacation season.
If your Father’s Day celebration involves breakfast or brunch, egg sandwiches (like a breakfast BLT!), an egg casserole studded with smoky hatch chiles, or blueberry scones are all winning options. With a tray of oven-cooked bacon, of course! If you’re saving the feast for dinner, consider turning on the grill for a summery pizza or steakhouse-inspired skewers or cooking a slab of unbelievably tender barbecue ribs in the oven.
Don’t let this month pass you by without broccoli and feta pasta salad, wildly easy shredded BBQ chicken, watermelon sherbet (made with just two ingredients!), Parmesan-dusted corn on the cob, and refreshing pitcher of lemonade from scratch. Here are 30 of our favorite ideas to inspire your cooking (and baking!) all month long, because we want you to have a positively delicious June.
