Caprese  Corn Salad

When it comes to grilling season, I’m all about the side dishes. Sure, I love a good grilled piece of meat—who doesn’t? But the side dishes are really my favorite. I was born and raised in Iowa, so I have a soft spot in my heart for corn this time of year.

The best way to cap a sunny summer day is with a scrumptious summer meal. And arguably the best place to prepare this summer meal is on the grill.

On warm Friday evenings in the summer, I love enjoying a glass of wine on the patio with a couple of appetizers. Of course, I don’t want anything too fussy, and this Roasted Tomato with Burrata appetizer is so, so easy.

I’m not sure about you, but in the heat of summer, the last thing I want to do is spend hours in the kitchen, bent over a hot stove to prepare a meal. For me, exploring new and complex recipes is hobby for winter, not summer.

A Beautiful (and Delicious) Spring Salad

One of my favorite spring salads is a strawberry poppy seed salad. It’s fresh, sweet, a little salty and just plain pretty! To turn it into a heartier dish, I add pasta and perfectly juicy grilled chicken.

This time of year always has my taste buds confused. I’m ready for spring, but sometimes the Minnesota weather doesn’t agree. So, when it comes to meal-planning, I crave something light, yet comforting. That’s where Carrot Leek Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons comes in!
