The Best of the Summer3 Comments

Happy Labor Day! Today marks the unofficial end to summer. It is funny how my internal clock switches to fall so easily. I no longer want to sit by the pool, and long for the cooler air. I want to wear jeans with cardigans and flip-flops. I am even more excited for fall this year because I have bookmarked tons of new recipes that will be perfect for the cooler weather. Lots of ones with apples which I am pretty excited about, and plenty of soups. Since this was my first year blogging an entire summer I thought it might be fun to highlight some of my favorite things that I have made. Below you will find my favs and a quick recap of each.


I kicked off the summer with this Strawberry Lemonade. It was the perfect drink for those hot summer nights.


I was determined to be a grilling master by the end of the summer, and I think I succeeded. These Pulled Hawaiian Chicken Sandwiches were the perfect balance of sweet and tangy.

We had these Grilled Chicken Fajitas for my birthday dinner yesterday. I wish there were more grilling months just for this recipe.

This Grilled Peach Salsa was Blair’s favorite. I loved the addition of basil to the salsa.

sliderbuns (1 of 1)

I tried my hand at making my own buns, and I don’t think I will ever go back to store-bought.

This Grilled Asparagus with goat cheese was one of my favorites. I made it twice in one week. I also proclaimed at a wedding this summer that I would marry goat cheese if I could…obsessed much?!

brownie (1 of 1)

What would summer be without ice cream? Even though I made a lot of it this summer this recipe takes the cake….Brownie Batter ice cream.

And finally we celebrated the Phillies at my Foodbuzz party with these Peanut Butter Kandy Kakes.

That was much harder to do than I expected. We had such great food this summer! What was the best thing you ate this summer? Or is there anything that you are looking forward to fall-related?
