I hope you are all having a nice summer!
I am not sure it is normal to get this excited over ingredients.
But I do, especially in the summer.
What is not to love about collecting
colorful, fragrant & pretty
goodies from the garden.
These are just a few of my favorites to
collect & of course cook with:).
I thought I would share one of the “best” summer time
recipes, according to my 7yr old.
And an added bonus, it’s healthy!
