Summer is for Gathering Over Food with Family, Friends, and the Farmers' Almanac! All year long, we look forward to summer-a time filled with cookouts, picnics, trips to the beach or lake, and dinner outdoors on the patio with good friends and family. Fresh-from-your-garden veggies, herbs, fruit, and gems from the farmers' market are in abundance, and can be turned into healthy and delicious meals to be served with icy cold drinks and frozen treats to beat the heat.
We're sharing our favorite, easy-to-assemble recipes for making the most of summer foods and traditions. You'll find recipes for every occasion: breakfasts, lunches, meals for a crowd, snacks, and treats. We've even added some shortcut and budget-friendly recipes as well as helpful hints to make your summer cooking a little simpler and a lot cooler. It's sure to get you excited about everyone's favorite season!
