|Bananas Foster French Toast at Bona Bella in Savannah, GA|
It is summer time for at least 1/2 of the world, and with that comes crushing heat, skimpier clothes, and party after party.
That trifecta of summer fun can oftentimes pose a problem for those of us who were not exactly watching our weight the way we should have during the colder months. Each year I kick myself for not trying harder, but just like the year before, I get it - life happens.
I have been perusing the Food "Pinterest" boards trying to pick out new recipes to give a try this summer. I crave fruits and veggies like crazy, especially in the warmer months, but trying to figure out new ways to make it interesting poses a problem. Let's not forget, I'm basically cooking for one (sometimes two, but honestly, my roomie and I have completely different tastes in food. She likes more southern specialties, while I go for the more Mediterranean in nature.)
I wanted to share with you a few of the recipes I am adding to my repertoire this summer. I found some that I really think could end up being staples in my home, and I can't wait to give them a go. If you click through on the picture, it will take you to the original page for the recipe.
|Feta, Blackberry & Melon Salad|
|Rainbow Ribbon Salad|
|Spiraled Greek Cucumber Salad|
|Turmeric & Potato Soup|
|Grilled Eggplant Roll-ups with Ricotta Pesto|
These are just a few that really caught my eye this week. I hope to give them a try while I am on vacation next week. Maybe you might like to do the same.
It is time I stop waiting for a reason to cook, and just enjoy life as it is! :-)
