The Beginning of Summer

The beginning of summer has officially hit! Monday marked the the summer solstice and the longest day of the year. Summer is my favorite season because of the hot weather and scorching sun. I need my tan! Summer is also an interesting cooking season.

There are fresh fruits, like peaches, plums and all types of berries. Delicious vegetables include corn, cucumbers, beans and tomatoes. Since it’s so hot in the summer, it’s also prime-time grilling season, with burgers, dogs and brats. To make things a little easier this summer, we’ve added a whole bunch of summer recipe collections. Check them out after the jump!
