Who wants to cook when it’s in the mid-90’s? Not me! On the hottest of days I much prefer to make a big batch of salad to live off of for a couple of dinners. A favorite in my rotation is this simple summer shrimp salad.
As luck would have it, I came down with my first cold of the season this weekend. One thing that always makes me feel better when I’m under the weather is a grilled cheese sandwich.
The grilled cheese below is one of our family favorites. It’s great for lunch on a cold day and can even work as a quick and easy dinner option with a salad or some fruit on the side.
One of my favorite easy-to-make appetizers are skewers! They’re visually appealing, are super quick and easy to make and the variations on flavors are never-ending.
This weekend my neighborhood wine group had a small summer kick-off cookout on Saturday. It had been a busy week so I was looking for something quick and easy to take. I came up with these Greek inspired feta, cucumber and Kalamata olive skewers with Greek dressing for dipping on the side. Assembly for a couple dozen pieces took 5 minutes or less. People commented that they looked fancy/festive yet they were so easy!
