As summer is quickly approaching, I’m thinking of all the deliciousness that’s to come. I tend to “wing it” when it comes to food, but I like to have some recipes on-hand to try every now and then. I rounded up 10 different summer recipes that include everything from dinner to drinks. (One of them is even Jeff’s own.. which he is very proud of. ;)
1. Grilled Corn with Sriracha Aioli
One of the recipes that caught our eye was this rendition of a classic veggie. Combine the powers of both old-school corn on the cob with the millennial mindset of “put Sriracha on everything!” and you get this great dish. We found it through The Minimalist Baker – which is one of the most popular recipe bloggers on the internet and we love Dana, the woman who began the site back in 2010. She also is the author of 5 cookbooks so…trust her. We can’t wait to try this one on the grill soon enough. Click here for the recipe.
2. Maple Bacon Brussel Sprouts
This is one of my favorites, but I might be a little biased because it’s Jeff’s. ;) Some of you may have seen us make this side dish on IG stories – we make it often. It’s easy and full of flavor. You can find the recipe here.
3. Pina Colada Bread Pudding
One thing that I am obsessed with is coconut. I would have it with every meal if I could! I found this recipe for Pina Colada Bread Pudding from The Suburban Soapbox Blog. I grew up eating bread pudding and while this sounds like something completely different… it has my name written all over it. Click here for the recipe.
Spinach salad is one of my favorite things. I love to eat light during the summer and when you add strawberries, it’s even better. I’m always up for trying new versions of my favorite dishes and I’m looking forward to making this from the Add a Pinch Blog this summer. Click here for the recipe.
When Jillian Harris first posted this photo on Instagram – I knew I was going to have to make it one day. Not only is the styling absolutely incredible.. but this sweet snack sounds yummy. I’ve never tried chia before, but Emma swears by it! I’ll let you know what I think because Emma and I plan on making it soon. Click here for the recipe.
6. Breakfast Tacos with Fire Roasted Tomato Salsa
Looking for something fun for a summer breakfast with the kids? This great recipe from Cooking Classy is such an easy yet creative way to deliver breakfast to your loved ones. A fun idea is to add a little taco bar so that everyone can add their own toppings! Click here for the recipe.
7. Peach Strawberry Rosé Sangria
Emma and I recently made this delicious sangria and posted all about it on the blog. We love it so much that we wanted to include it in this post. We also made a non-alcoholic peach lemonade version as well! Click here for both recipes.
8. Grilled Cilantro-Lime Chicken With Avocado Salsa
Another great recipe by Cooking Classy – definitely check out her blog for more amazing daily recipes. This dish is perfect for summer evenings: fresh, colorful, and healthy. For all the fatty recipes we indulge in – this is a great counterpart to make us feel better again! Click here for the recipe.
9. Banana Bread Smoothie
Another favorite foodie blogger of mine is Tori from Fraiche Nutrition. She is extremely healthy and always inspires me. Every year she hosts the 10-Day Smoothie challenge and posts the best recipes. Click here for the 10 different recipes including this banana bread smoothie.
10. Rainbow Popsicles
Emma specifically chose this because this is something she would love to make with her best friend Maddy. During the summer this would be such a fun afternoon project to make with kids or friends. We found this recipe from The First Year Blog. It’s instagrammable and healthy! Click here for the recipe.
