Last Days of Summertime Favorite 30 Recipes
I can’t believe summer is winding down and fall is just around the corner. In Southern California, it’s usually warmer in September and October than it is in May and June, so summer isn’t over anytime soon here.
I plan to milk the gorgeous weather – my favorite weather of the year – as long as the sunny, 78F days with no humidity and crystal clear blue skies want to stick around.
I wanted to reflect on 30 of my favorite recipes I made this summer, spanning mid-May until now.
Some are seasonal, some aren’t, but all are worth being made. I truly love each of them. They’re all easy, straightforward, and nothing complicated. Just solid recipes that taste great that you and your family will love.
I’m thinking Labor Day party food with some of them.
