Sweet Summer Treats

Monday, June 7, 2010

In the hopes of meeting one of my monthly goals for June, I am attempting to cook at least twice a week and sample out some new recipes for our table. Not to toot the horn too loudly, but I am happy to say I cooked dinner 4 times last week and am anxious to get to cooking again... something about a home-cooked meal makes me happy, and I know Jeff can't complain either. So with that in mind, I rounded up some new summertime recipes--for the grill, for a picnic, for cookouts with friends, or just to munch on in between... hope you enjoy!
