Summer Menu Ideas

Good morning! I hope that you are having a great week, and are staying cool and dry. As with most summers the weather is all over , extreme heat, flooding, fires, etc. 
We are preparing for guests this week and I am looking for some interesting recipes. My husband is in charge of the main course and I am in charge of everything else. I like it that way because then I can have all of the scrumptious things I like. 

Here are a few of this things on my list to make this week. 


Bake Brie with Honey and Pistachios from Nerds with Kitchen Kinves

Mexican Street Corn Dip from Cooking and Beer

Easy Feta Dip from The Girl Who Ate Everything


Grilled Romaine from The Floating Kitchen

Peach Salad from Cooking Classy

Greek Pasta Salad from Two Peas and Their Pods


Banana Cream Tarts with Chocolate Crust

Grilled Peaches from What's Gabby Cooking

Blueberry Crumble Bars

Raspberry Margarita Tarts

Best Ever Banana Cake

Raspberry Lemon Cheesecake Bars

Do you have any summer appetizers, sides, salads, dips or desserts that you always make? I would love to try them so please share!

Have a great day.
