Memorial Day Recipes

What are your plans for the long holiday weekend?  I’m going to get some much needed rest and relaxation.  Since it’s the unofficial start to summer, aka BBQ food season, I thought I’d share some of my favorite recipes (with some never before seen photos) that are perfect for summer and especially this weekend.

Eggplant Caprese.  So simple but SO good.

Strawberry Daiquiri.  Gorgeousness, right?

Mexican Corn and Quinoa Salad.  Anything with corn goes.  I’m obsessed with corn on the cob so you’ll likely be seeing  a lot of it once it’s in season.

Summer Barley Salad. Yup, another recipe with corn because why not?  This salad contains all of my favorite summertime veggies.

Giant Blueberry Hand Pie.  Need I say more?

S’more Cookie Bars.  S’mores are the first food that comes to my mind when I think of summer food.  Yum.

Pound Cake.  Add some whipped cream and berries and you’ve got a summertime dessert winner.

Dark Chocolate Chip Nut Cookies.  Chocolate is always a good idea.

Homemade Chipwiches.  These are totally nostalgic for me.

Lemon Bars.  Refreshing.


Have a fun and safe weekend.  🙂
