Summer cooking is all about easy and favor and grilling! My summers are busy, like yours! Working and playing hard! So I don’t want to be trapped in the kitchen when I can be out in the garden, or on the patio with friends enjoying a gorgeous summer evening! I’m sharing 5 of my very very favorite must try SUMMER recipes. These are the best of the StoneGable best! I hope you will give them a try!
1. MAGIC BBQ RUB
I think every spice cupboard should have this great, versatile rub on board! MAGIC BBQ RUB is wonderful on chicken and ribs. It gives your meats a spicy depth of flavor and just the slightest whiff of heat. Smoky and complex, this is my go-to way to grill!
Even if you don’t like veggies, you should try these!!! Fabulous summer vegetables grilled to a perfect char and bathed in a balsamic dressing that is infused with garlic and basil. They can be eaten hot or cold and work wonderfully in an omelet or sandwich. We make these almost weekly all throughout the summer!
If you grow herbs you will want to make HERB BUTTER. It’s super easy and has so many variations. Just think of having a log of savory butter in your freezer to use in place of butter to give your dishes and grilled foods an over-the-top flavor!!! I give these as gifts too!
If zucchini were worth their weight in gold we be would be the richest people in the world. Zucchini loves our land and produces like weeds! So what is a girl to do with all those zucchini… make GLAZED LEMON ZUCCHINI BREAD! It is delicate and moist and has intense lemony flavor. It also freezes well and is scrumptious!!!! No wonder it makes the top 5 list!
You really should try recipe and see for yourself! StoneGable potato salad is the food I get asked the most to bring to summer get-togethers and picnics! Yes, it is THAT good!!!! It does take a little more work, but it can be made in stages and taste better if made ahead. So worth the effort!!!!
I hope you try all these yummy summer recipes! They are sure to become your favorites too!
